Whispers from the Swarm

"Urban legend has it that the Moth Man will sit above your porch and doomscreech to you, which is kinda like doomsaying, but more shrill. They say he haunts the night. They say he's pretty gay. 

So it's only natural that I'd feel kinship with the dude when one day I realised I had moths inside of me. 

They showed me things. I could see it, touch it, smell it... 

No, believe me! 

Please, don't leave. Please, don't go, don't go there. I beg you. I don't want to see it again, what happens to you... 


The Swarm Speaker

A portent of doom, they know when things end. They can feel it, smell, sometimes even see it, glimpses of a sword of Damocles that hangs and swings above the city’s head. The chittering, these whispers, they can’t ignore them, but everyone else seems to, and so this burden is theirs to bear, alone, eating away at them.


The Swarm Speaker is a fanmade Playbook for Monsterhearts 2 by Avery Alder, which you can find at https://buriedwithoutceremony.com. You should definitely check out the other amazing things there.

The Swarm Speaker has a power of foresight that gives them an edge in many situation, but they're single-minded, as their agency is slowly eaten away by the moths living inside of them.

All in all, their life sucks, but if you want a character with a simple, sweet life, why are you checking out Monsterhearts 2?

 I literally had a player once that said "I'll play in your monsterhearts game but only if you let me play Swarm Speaker*

I responded "What's Swarm Speaker"

They showed me.
