In Bemused, players are muses, supernatural entities of creative inspiration that favor an art form and a human virtuoso that has mastered that art form: The Dancer, The Musician, The Painter, The Poet, The Singer, The Thespian.
Muses seek to bring their chosen virtuoso to the highest pinnacle of creative glory by planting doubts and dreads in other artists, driving them insane and removing them from contention. But be warned: excess dread can kill a virtuoso and unleash a fantasma! And fantasmas have their own, dreadful ideas about what constitutes art!
Bemused is NOT a social deduction game! While Bemused uses elements of deduction, it is first and foremost a game of social interaction, bluffing, and deal-making to maximize a score.
