Devastated Earth - Apocalypse Edition $7.99

Devastated Earth - Apocalypse Edition: $7.99
Publisher: RetroPunk Publicacoes

When there is no more space in hell, the dead will walk the earth.
— Dawn of the Dead, 1978

Deserted streets, broken glass, abandoned cars, bullet holes in the walls of buildings, blood, flies and pieces of putrid meat decorating the entire environment. This is the current scenario in most cities in the world, places that today are just devastated ghost cities.

The silence is broken only by the groan and stumbling of those infected with the Cerberus Virus, who wander aimlessly through the streets. Sometimes lonely, sometimes in large groups, they hunt, kill and those who are not completely devoured return as members of these mobs of monsters. It is impossible to find a safe place and expect them to just disappear.

They are dead, yet, still alive. Some of them were acquaintances, friends and relatives, now they are just hungry, irrational and dirty. Creatures in perfect harmony with the new disastrous environment of the world. While we, the survivors - humans - are in the process of extinction. We are the strange element in this new biome.

Devastated Earth is a narrative game about hopes, traumas, losses, risks and consequences. About surviving in a world devastated by an apocalyptic pandemic that transformed humanity into weak, toxic and butchery monsters. On the despair of the unwary remnants of Earth, weakened, exhausted and bordering on insanity. About crossing contaminated wastes, devastated cities, unsanitary areas, desolate territories and foggy trails beyond what you can imagine.

Devastated Earth is an RPG with intuitive mechanics that values the imaginative and narrative power of the players. The system follows a flexible concept that allows customization of characters by players.

Devastated Earth is a game of acts and consequences, of despair and hopelessness, and how to get through day after day without going crazy or being devoured.

The Blood - Quickstart $4.99

The Blood - Quickstart: $4.99
Publisher: Falconian Productions

Vampires are creatures of magic; how else do you explain the undead? Some absent god’s curse? Possessing spirits? Strange diseases? Of course not. It’s not some outside force’s pet project — vampirism is magic. An arcane force, The Blood, is what makes a vampire.

What is the Blood? It’s the fragment of power shared by every vampire in the world, and the conglomerate force made up of those segments. It's not a voice, or instinct, but... insight. The Blood shows you what you want, what It wants. It shows you the quickest and easiest ways to get to it. It shows you every blind spot in the warehouse’s security, every path to your prize, every frail beating heart between you and your goal. Then, it gives you what you need to act on it.

But your choices are always your own. There’s no internal struggle whenever It wants you to do something, and no risk of losing yourself if you do give in, there's just whether you can live with those choices. Those that would do no wrong even in the face of temptation likely still won't as a vampire, but those that avoided wrongdoing only because they feared being caught, or lacked the means?

Well, those are the vampires you read stories about.

We know how those stories end...


The Blood is a game about vampires as arcane creatures, an otherworldly force empowering their undead forms and providing them with magical potency. The powers attributed to vampires in stories and media are simply the spells that come most easily to them. It's about seeing how they balance their desire for power with the need for secrecy in the world, and about succumbing to or resisting the arcane desires their Blood inflicts on them. 

The Quickstart contains:

  • A summarized description of the atmosphere and setting of the world of The Blood.
  • Condensed but functionally complete rules and systems.
  • Rules for creating new characters, as well as pregenerated characters for easy use.
  • A unique open-ended magic system, wherein a character's Knack for certain uses of magic combines with Resonance in the world to enact effects.
  • A starting scenario to allow for immediate play, involving a heist to steal a powerful artifact from a dangerous cult.

It seems like just yesterday that you were home, in the “real” world, or at least that’s what you thought of it as at the time. And maybe it really was just yesterday that you were there, but at this very moment, that place is an immeasurable distance from you, or at least you assume it is. Somehow, you have been whisked away to a world that you could only imagine; one that you never would have believed to really exist. In your wildest daydreams, maybe you wished to be in an exotic and magical fantasy world where nothing was as it seemed, and all manner of fantastical beasts and peoples thrived, but now that you are here, you can fixate your mind on only one goal: finding your way back home. Though you are focused on finding your way home, you realize just how surreal this experience is and want to remember it forever, so you have taken to journaling. You keep with you a small journal, in which you make notes of the events that have transpired and the discoveries you’ve made in this unfamiliar world.

A Modern Prometheus  is a gothic horror roleplaying game for 2 players based on the Mobile Frame Zero: Firebrands framework by D. Vincent Baker and Meguey Baker (Lumpley Games).

Players take on the role of a scientist dabbling with dark forces at the edge of the natural sciences, and the creation that they bring to life as a consequence. Together, you and your partner will discover through play who is human, and who is monstrous.

You will take turns choosing from a list of minigames specific to your character to craft a shared story of science, vengeance, humanity, and rage. No two minigames are exactly alike. Use crafted prompts to guide your interactions as you explore the depths of your character, and discover their fate in the final confrontation between creator and creation.

Prepare for a emotional and horrific tale that only you and your chosen partner can tell.

This game is inspired by works like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and adaptations.

Once Upon A Time In Shamblington is a medium-light set of rules, a set of six fully-realized characters, and a fairly hefty set of useful material for the Guide (GM). The rules are a standalone variant of those used in the Quest RPG, focused on table conversations and perfomances and low on maths. The campaign starter gives unique problems in the world related to each character, locations tied to these, and encounters for each, all interconnected to form the basis on which a grand story can hardly help but be told.

That story begins like this...


ONCE UPON A TIME, the village of Shamblington stood, up a long river and no road at all from any king, surrounded by a fell and forbidding forest, rarely visited by outsiders.

Long was its history; the forest had been a place of true terror and death once, then pacified, but it seemed as if the terrors might be returning. And there were three who knew more of those matters than any other. These three were heroes, the mighty of Shamblington. For one, Shamblington was ruled by the Baron Arman. And for another, it was protected by the sword of Dame Ennia. And third, the wards all around it were crafted and maintained by the magus, Xia.

These three heroes saw some chance to prevent the wood from darkening again. So they drew up their powers and weapons, and went forth last month, promising a quick sortie of only a few days.

They have not returned.

Ruen, the brother of Baron Arman, has claimed the baronial seat, ignoring the claim of Arman's heir Urte. Xia left much unfinished. An apprentice named Rha, left without clear instructions, waits in the House of Lights, the strange home of the mystic. Dame Ennia's squire Marta and her sibling Falda wait, too, at the watchtower, hearing a cry of travellers coming out from the woods. Those coming out from the woods are Minsk and Basch, two former captives to magic there, loosed by events deeper in the forest beginning to raise their pace.



....And where the story goes from there is discovered in play, supported by all the materials included.

A Canon of Beauty: $5.00
Publisher: Wicked Pug Games

A Canon of Beauty is a genre bending indie RPG with simple rules that require nothing but a D6, a few friends, and a desire to tell a story together. 

You play as artifacts or pieces of art in a museum, at night you come to life and have adventures. Don't just stop at becoming animated statues, stretch your imagination. How would a Jackson Pollock painting look like if it came to life? How would it move? How would it act? Would it be depressingly dependent on the nearest Lee Krasner painting?

At the core of this game is an invitation for you and your game group to go to real museums and interact with the art and its history. If you can't make it to a museum right now two sample museums are included.

The Getty Villa looks like one of the richest museums in the world, sitting atop a bluff in Malibu, California. That is probably because it is. Come inside after dark and be part of a world filled with Greco-Roman mythology replayed on an intimate scale. And what of the rumors that J. Paul Getty, who is buried on the property, found a way to live on through his art. Surely that is a metaphor.

The Prado is the national museum of Spain, known as a "museum of painters not paintings," it houses many great masterpieces. How can the work of so many great geniuses coexist peacefully once the visitors leave? Can so many portrayals of saints, kings, and madmen (but I repeat myself) ever find balance?

You'll find everything you need to try a new and innovative genre of roleplaying in this book, A Canon of Beauty.

The Flexorcists: $5.00
Publisher: Richard Kelly

It started in the late year 200X. Ghosts, demons, and other occult forces grew resistant to conventional exorcisms. Minor possessions, the kind that would previously have been resolved with a sprinkle of holy water and a few minutes of half-hearted praying, suddenly became multiple-hour-long, life-or-death ordeals.

Major possessions swallowed entire townships and broke holy men.

Worse, the unspoken rule that a possessing force had to operate only through the local environment became snapped and frayed.

Possessors could now manifest physically, and they were extremely swole.

Thus, the world entered a new age of banishments. Gone were the days when any reedy man could cast out a demon.

Fighting the supernatural was now a job for…

The Flexorcists.
