CHILDREN OF THE WORM
CHILDREN OF THE WORM is an adventure pack for The Chronicles of Future Earth, set in the city of Korudav. It deals with a strange alliance between a clan of Troglodytes and a gang of bandit Che Kwa, the red men of Kadram, the havoc they’re wreaking and the secret they’ve uncovered.
THE CHRONICLES OF FUTURE EARTH PDF
Here is a PDF VERSION of The Chronicles of Future Earth. The Earth we know is gone, forgotten in the depths of time. In its place is a world of mystery and danger, steeped in a thousand centuries of history and legend, where humankind brushes shoulders with beings and creatures strange and monstrous. It’s a time of danger, reckoning, and adventure.
CRUSADERS OF THE AMBER COAST
It is the year 1206 AD. CRUSADERS OF THE AMBER COAST contains all the information required to run your Northern Crusade game with the BASIC ROLEPLAYING game system, including magic rules for the Christian crusaders and the pagan druids and witches, as well as game statistics for creatures of the Baltic folklore. Create your own scenarios, with your heroes siding either with the Crusading invaders or with the Baltic natives, or play through the included campaign that spans over several years of game time and takes you through the most important events of the Baltic epic.
THE CELESTIAL EMPIRE
BASIC ROLEPLAYING IN IMPERIAL CHINA: “The Celestial Empire” is an old phrase used in Classical Chinese to describe the Chinese Empire. This book is a historically accurate roleplaying game about Imperial China. THE CELESTIAL EMPIRE captures the exotic bewilderment of The Journey to the West, the virile excitement of The Water Margin, the investigative astuteness of Judge Dee, and the kinetic fantasy from Hong Kong fiction!
CAPITAL LAUNDRY SERVICES – WHAT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP? There are things out there, in the weirder reaches of space-time where reality is an optional extra. Horrible things, usually with tentacles. Al-Hazred glimpsed them, John Dee summoned them, H.P. Lovecraft wrote about them, and Alan Turing mapped the paths from our universe to theirs. The right calculation can call up entities from other, older universes, or invoke their powers.
THE LAUNDRY roleplaying game is based on the award-winning Laundry series by the even-more-award-winning CHARLES STROSS, and uses the also-award-winning BASIC ROLEPLAYING system.
THE DREAMING PRINCE monograph
An exploration of the extra-human consciousness of the Great Old Ones and, in particular, Cthulhu. Cthulhu lies dreaming in sunken R’lyeh, transmitting madness to the world around him, to different times and to different people, depending on their sensitivity to his dreams. Great Old Ones can be both tangible entities and intangible representations of natural forces beyond the understanding of human science.
