In Short Aletheia
may best be described as a game that embraces the occult mystery solving of the X-Files
but with the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
calling the shots. A secret society of seven people, the third and final incarnation of the society, travels around the world investigating the unknowable in an attempt to discover nothing more or less than truth itself. These society members each have a bit of the strange about them – every one of them has some sort of mysterious ability – and while they explore hauntings, alien abductions, and stranger things still they may learn a little bit about what makes them so different from the rest of humanity. Using a simple investigation-focused game system, Alethia
places all the focus on player problem solving and deduction in order to figure out the truth behind each encounter with the unknown.
