What It’s About You can’t choose your family, the saying goes. How awful. At least you can torment them until they die. In Gloom, that’s how you win! Let’s meet the families, shall we? The Slogar patriarch, Lord Slogar, is a brain in a box. His wife Helena enjoys long walks in the moonlight and reanimating the dead. Lord Wellington-Smythe dotes on his children the Twins, the sweetest demonically possessed sociopaths you’ll ever meet. The Darks are a circus family led by ringmaster Darius Dark. Their most miserable show on earth features a shy, illustrated lady and a bearded… man. Finally, the head of the Stark household is The Old Dam, a murderous matriarch whose sweet daughter Angel is a starry-eyed serial killer. In play, these unfortunates might be Ruined by Rum or Shunned by Society before dying Old and Alone or even being Devoured by Weasels. But in Gloom? That’s great! Because once everyone’s dead, the most miserable family wins!
