Wolf Hounds [Free]

Wolf Hounds [Free]:

R0vn49.jpg

“Those that men call Werewolves or Lycanthropes call themselves the Hounds of God, as they claim their transformation is a gift from their creator, and they repay the gift with their tenacity, for they will pursue an evildoer to the very gates of Hell.”– Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Wolf Hounds is a historical fantasy roleplaying game about the Benandanti, a society of werewolves dedicated to protecting their communities from supernatural threats. Uses a lightweight Apocalypse system based on John Harper's World of Dungeons: Turbo. You will need a game master, some players, writing materials, and a few six-sided dice.

  • Create characters including shapeshifting Hounds, mystical Seers, and intrepid humans.
  • Uncover supernatural mysteries, and hunt those that would prey upon the innocent.
  • A streamlined Apocalypse system emphasizes fast dice rolls, teamwork, and player agency.
  • Details for players and GMs on the Benandanti, their world, and their adversaries.
  • Contains an introductory adventure set in medieval Lithuania.
  • Easier to learn than that other werewolf RPG!

Away From the Rain [$8.00]

Away From the Rain [$8.00]:

On this rainy evening, three untrustworthy suspects have each separately testified to committing the same murder.

Away From the Rain is a GM-less tabletop game for 3 or 6 players. Play time ~45 minutes. Good both as a one-shot and as a drop-in interlude in an existing setting.

Inspired by The Moonlit Road by Ambrose Bierce and In A Grove by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa.

Illustrated by shannon kao, the best atmospheric illustrator to ever have lived.

2mb8Yl.png

The body was found this evening, just after the rain. Three people have confessed to this murder, including the Deceased themselves.

We'll hear from each of the Suspects, and we'll hear from three members of their community.

This is a game about how we are unable to be honest with ourselves about ourselves. It is a game about rationalizations and unreliable narrators. You'll tell disagreeing stories, and you may not find out the truth.

  • Keep the atmosphere dark, but not heavy.
  • Center your stories on people and look at those people clearly.
  • Always speak as someone who believes what they're saying.
  • Remember that rain dulls sounds, makes it harder to see, and washes away footprints.
  • Remember that recollection itself is a kind of performance.

Hole in One-Shot - A Sports Anime Tabletop One Shot [Free]

Hole in One-Shot - A Sports Anime Tabletop One Shot [Free]:

VTemdi.png

It’s the eve of the highschool minigolf spring national tournament finals, and things are getting tense. You and your classmates have been practicing together for months, growing stronger not only as mini golf players, but also as friends, and as rivals. Your school used to be great at mini golf back in the day, but after your fall from grace, you’re considered the underdogs. You have everything to prove, and everything to lose. If you don’t win at nationals, the school’s going to cut funding for the mini golf club, and you won’t be able to keep playing together. The dream lives or dies here, tonight. 

Hole in One Shot is a one shot tabletop RPG framework, designed to be scalable, and open to player creativity in roleplaying. In fact, the game rewards creative roleplay with mechanical benefits regularly, and simplifies most of the dice rolls involved considerably compared to more complex game systems.

The game plays around with Sports Anime genre tropes, and expects a certain degree of familiarity with the genre.

The game takes place over nine holes / nine rounds, with the DM able to extend or decrease the number of rounds if needed. A nine hole game should take a team of four players 90-120 minutes to complete, as gameplay moves fast, with most time during the game taken describing solutions to problems.

The Winding Journey [$4.00]

The Winding Journey [$4.00]:

olBHo2.png

It is the beginning of Spring in the small village of Dunfel.

You are Vyler, a young man that's lived in these parts all your life.     

You've been learning from nature and have stumbled upon some bit of magic here and there, but you've never had any formal training. Fashioning yourself out to be a druid, or at least what you think one should be like, based on what you've read, you feel a closeness to the earth.    

On the first full moon of Spring, you were visited by a woman, or rather her spirit, as she came to you using great powers you had never seen before. You are awestruck, seeing her appear out of the air, with her eyes glowing like embers.    

She motions for you to come sit next to her, as she formally greets you. Calling herself Eraina, she tells you that she is in need of someone worthy enough to be her apprentice. Looking through all of the region, you were the only person she felt would qualify for what she deemed an important role. You would be her apprentice, if you chose to accept the offer. Agreeing, you set out the next day, following the path in the nearby woods that Eraina had directed you to.

Thus begins your journey to meet the mystic Eraina and find your calling.

The Winding Journey is a game made for the Carta jam.For it, you will need-

A standard deck of playing cards, with two jokers.Two six-sided dice.A marker, or token, to track your movement.A journal, or some paper, to write on.Enough room to lay out a 4x6 grid of cards.

Parkour Sneaky Mutant Warriors [Free]

Parkour Sneaky Mutant Warriors!

A Troika! hack, with art by Evlyn Moreau!

You play semi-super-hero animal mutants, wandering a world that used to be humanity's home before we wrecked it for ourselves. These mutant animals will moped, skateboard, surf, and parkour through a post-apocalypse of verdant forests, beautiful deserts, skyscraper-ruins-turned-dungeons, and the new pizzarias and bars that animal-kind sets up. 

Inspired by Scratch & Claw, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Gamma World, this set of backgrounds, a rule for combo moves, and a few enemies is a jumping-off point for developing a post-apocalypse of wonder and danger, warrior moves and smoke bombs. 

Parkour Sneaky Mutant Warriors is an independent production by Charlie Vick and not affiliated with the Melsonian Arts Council. Evlyn Moreau's art is used under a Creative Commons license and was slightly edited (cut out portrait faces from big pictures of many of them).

[ENGLISH]

You are an old-school spiritist. Instead of using modern electronic transcommunication devices, you prefer to use the Psychomanteum: a dark room, dimly lit by a candle, and a black mirror that serves as a portal to the Otherworld. The experience is direct, immersive... and dangerous.

To Teach Their Own [$20.00]

To Teach Their Own [$20.00]:

bYcIiR.png

To Teach Their Own is a game about a small group of grown-up witches teaching student witches valuable lessons about magic. It pulls from things like The Magic Schoolbus, The Wizard of Earthsea, Little Witch Academia, Strixhaven, and more, to tell classroom-adventure stories from a new point of view.

Instead of retelling the same stories of plucky students in a boarding school with the world on their shoulder, this game invites you to witness and play from a different point of view: you'll play teachers who have come together to take a group of magically-adept students on a field trip to remember, where everyone has the opportunity to learn something new.

To Teach Their Own is a Forged in the Dark game with some significant twists. You build your instructor by writing Expertises, which stand in for stress and quirks from other Forged in the Dark games. To refill your Expertises in-play, you'll pick two triggers specific to your playbook, each of which you'll hit during the course of play, like the keys in Lady Blackbird. It's designed for a GM and 1-4 additional players, each of whom will pick a playbook for the instructor they're embodying:

  • The Champion, whose past experience as a magical-sport athlete fuels their desire to be loved by an audience and their capacity to win over a crowd of students
  • The Librarian, whose expansive knowledge of history and precise knowledge of formulae allows them to answer nearly any question a student might pose
  • The Hedge-Witch, whose affinity for nature and the underlying weave of magic allows them to show without preaching, repair the unnatural, and befriend the unseen
  • The Intercessor, whose skill at preparation and insistence on precaution gives them the strength to say "no" even when it is not easy (which is often when it is direly needed!)

The game consists of twelve densely-packed easy-to-read pages, with a complete rulesetand four playbooks. All you need to play is the rules, some friends, a few d6, and two hours of your time. Familiarity with systems like Blades in the Dark or Lady Blackbird can be helpful, but is absolutely not necessary. To Teach Their Own is feature-complete, with GM screens and fillable character sheets coming Summer of 2021. Pick it up today!

Patchwork World Sixth Edition [$12.00]:

Patchwork World is:

  • a no-playbook, no-stat fantasy game; choose a couple moves and you're ready to start

BLOOD COTILLION [$7.00]

BLOOD COTILLION [$7.00]:

 

ZASrm1.jpg

TEETH: BLOOD COTILLION is a grotesque, single-session, standalone table-top roleplaying game for 3-6 people (including the GM).

It is set during a single night at a high-society ball, in a cursed corner of 18th-century England. The players are formidable assassins, disguised as husband-hunting ingenues, who must root out the occult evil that lurks in the manor, destroy it and, ideally, survive. 

J4pYy9.jpg

The game uses a simplified version of the Forged In The Dark rules to tell this troubling story of peril and unpleasantness, and is designed to be played in a single session. It should take between three and five hours to play, during which time the ball goers will make horrifying decisions to achieve their victory over the supernatural, and also over polite society.

The full package includes:

  • 45 pages of delirious 18th century ballroom intrigue and occult savagery
  • many illustrations therein
  • two maps (one with a full colour version)
  • two info-packed quick reference guides for GM and players
  • playbooks
  • digital versions of the playbooks
  • and various low-ink alternatives for the above

It's a fair bit.

(We aren't selling a pre-printed zine of BLOOD COTILLION as yet, but if you'd like to be notified of such an event then why not subscribe to our delightful newsletter? Or you could just print it out yourself and stick it together with Sellotape.)

Lightbringers - An TTRPG made in 24 hours. [$5.00]

Lightbringers - An TTRPG made in 24 hours. [$5.00]:

8L3OzZ.png

This is a minimalist RPG designed and illustrated in less than 24 hours, with a focus on rolling up to four d6s and fighting giant bosses for the sake of saving your homeworld from unspeakable evil. It's best played in a group of two to four players. 

It could be played solo, but i imagine that wouldn't go very well due to the nature of the game.

It is an epic level boss rush game experience in very, very few pages, for those who want a chaotic endgame level fight in half the time.

I made this game to deal with an onset of depression and imposter syndrome, and also, to see if i could create a lot of setting material in a small amount of pages. (Was aiming for 16, after the art and a character sheet, you got 20.)

It also sounded cool to fight big awful gross monster type things. 

Despite developing another larger TTRPG project that is coming, this is officially my first published roleplaying game.

I believe it's functional, but am happy to address any of the game's unforseen problems that come up in errata or discussion.

Convergence is a family focused coming of age TTRPG about the relationships we have with each other.

This game is a project I've been working on for roughly 3 years now, finally released for your enjoyment!

But it isn't done yet. This is basically just a word doc that's been exported as a PDF, with no bells or whistles attached. No art, no lore, and only the bare minimum of items/NPCs written out to give you an idea of how to run a game. 

I'd like to do a full release of the game with all those things added into it, and expanding the rules to include starting older than adolescence, playing as a full elemental or human, and more. But unfortunately, I just don't have the funding to do that. And so that's where this release comes in. 

All of the sales of this game will go towards art, assets, and polish so that I can run a Kickstarter to make the full release of the game. This will include PDFs, Softcovers, Hardcovers, and more! I've got a set plan for what the Kickstarter will include, and what will be a part of the stretch goals, but I also have plans for further expansions afterwards to add new character choices, even more lore, and several other ideas! So if you enjoy these most basic of rules, spread the word and help me get the full release Kickstarter going!

Shadow Patrol [Free]

Shadow Patrol [Free]:

lfND1q.png

Shadow Patrol is a hack of John Harper's Danger Patrol, where players take on the roles of characters in a dystopian future where magic and technology collide. They will risk it all in daring heists (that will never go as planned), brave rescues (that will probably involve a double-cross), and blazing firefights (like, there will likely be actual balls of fire being thrown around).

Shadow Patrol is designed to get a group together and gaming in minutes, with super easy character creation (pick a Style, pick a Role, you're good to go!), collaborative world-building (as much or as little as you like), and easy-to learn rules. Shadow Patrol also builds on the classic DP mechanics by adding options for new Talents, Powers, and bonuses from when using vehicles, and tables for new scene, threat, and motivation generation.

I'm happy to continue tinkering with and improving Shadow Patrol and any game I work on, so I'd love to hear you thoughts and feedback. Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy the game.

Your band of misfits must try to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland beset by strange mutants, tyrannical human supremacists, crazed raider gangs, maniacal AIs, sentient plants, moody kaiju, and other weirdness that defies the laws of nature and good taste.

Omega-Mutant is intended to have your group gaming within minutes, including character generation, rules review, and generation of threats, motivations, and scenes. It also includes some tweaks, including options for taking stress, random map generation, and using "Doom Clocks" similar to clocks in PtBA and Forged in the Dark games.

Omega-Mutant is in early release, so please share your thoughts for improvements or send any questions my way. Thanks for looking!

Omega Patrol [Free]

Omega Patrol [Free]:

Omega Patrol is a hack for John Harper's Danger Patrol, a rules-list, collaborative story game of high adventure in a mutant-filled weird apocalypse. Taking cues from classic media such as Gamma World, the Fallout series, and movies such as Mad Max and the Omega Man, the GM and players can be as grounded or as gonzo as they want.

Omega Patrol builds on classic DP components for very fast character creation (really just a few minutes) and play. It adds optional rules for mutations, Interludes, and vehicle combat (including vehicle cards for new bonuses and powers!). It also provides additional resources to flesh out your wacky post-apocalypse, including tables for scene and threat generation (inspired by Pocket Danger Patrol and Lasers & Feelings), factions, tech levels, and more.

Grim reaper, the bringer of death, the one who wields a soul-eating scythe that ends a panoply of lives. A job for the cold-blooded, the intelligent, and the observant; only the ones who have these traits can become a successful Grim Reaper. That is why every Grim Reaper needs to be a teacher for the Grim Reaper candidates, passing down knowledge to ensure that one day they can inherit the job.

Every thousand years, the Grim Reaper will give the candidates a test, and pick the one who did the best to become the next Grim Reaper.

Today is the test day.

The Grim Reaper sits at the end of the black table, patiently awaits the candidates to join them at the table.

A gust of wind enters the room, bringing in a flood of darkness, the candle lights shivering and struggling to keep burning. The wind faded away, stepping out of the darkness are the candidates, the future Grim Reapers, ready to take their final test.

They sit down at the table, and the Grim Reaper raised their head. With a faint glow from under their hood, a crackling and decrepit voice fades into reality:

Welcome to your final test, students.

Today, one of you will inherit my place as the Grim Reaper, and become death itself. This is a test of observation, logic, rationalization, reasoning…and most importantly, your ability to foresee and predict.

Every death has a reason, every pain has a source. Your job is to find out what the truth is, combine your knowledge and think. I will guide you, but in the end it depends on you, and you alone.

Best of luck, doom awaits you all.

The Grim Reaper waves their hand, and all the candles die out in synchronicity.

Darkness reigns……
