Welcome back to Aeonhorror.com and our new, shiny website! Along with giving the site a face lift, we’ve also revisited written content. Although there won’t be any surprises to Aeon veterans, phrasing has been cleared up, typos fixed, and things split out into more sensible chunks. The new CMS gives us the flexibility to format things in more approachable way. Everyone is happy about this.

The Foundling files were documents plus supplementary evidence created for each of the Foundlings held on site, and those that had been handled by the site, which was the location for Incident No. ###. They were available to players as paper documents.
