Elves in Pink

Elves in Pink

We’re a rumor, recognizable only as déjà vu,
and dismissed just as quickly.
We don’t exist. We were never even born.
Anonymity is our name. Silence, our native tongue.
We are no longer part of the system.
We are above the system. Over it. Beyond it.
We’re “them.” We’re “they.”
We are the Elves in Pink.

The EiP headquarters has been compromised. Can your intrepid band of adventurers determine what happened and take back the facility before it's too late?
A 6-10 hour adventure for 11th-14th level characters

"A rip-roaring good time!" "Devils and demons and some major, major magic! A wild, epic adventure!"

Edited by Linda May; Artwork by the Fine Folks at the DMsGuild & Alan Tucker
Maps, Design & Layout by Alan Tucker,
Playtesting by Agents A, J, J, S, T, & R, among others— thank you!

Coast of Thrall (PDF)

   A group of adventurers are allied together on a voyage across the Sea of Spears. There is a mysterious prisoner aboard who is locked in the brig. He is being transported to Soulbade to be executed for his heinous crimes, so when people start to end up missing who is really to blame? The journey takes the adventurers all the way from Myen Wu, through the Pirate Isles, and to the dark city of Soulbade. A city where the shadows have a thousand eyes and a dangerous cult called the Dream Watchers worship a wicked djinn with the power to enslave his victims when they sleep. It is left to the adventurers to save these victims of the slavers. It is up to them to rescue the innocent from those who hold the power to not only enslave the mortal flesh, but the very soul as well.

This adventure module is the first campaign adventure for the dark fantasy tabletop RPG called Demon Gate, yet this may be used and adapted to other fantasy RPGs. It is meant for low level adventures or first level beginners and uses plenty of prompts that allow the game master to read to the players if they do not enjoy detailing scenes on their own.

Chaos 6010 A.D. Core Rulebook (PDF)

This is a science fantasy RPG set in a dark and distant, post-apocalyptic future. It is a mash of comic book style cyberpunk and space opera where you can reach epic levels and continue your tales in a multi-verse of worlds through several planes of reality.

After several different types of cataclysmic events have ravaged the Earth there is a new Age. A new empire has risen from the many layers of destroyed Earth. An alliance of humans and an ancient alien race known as the eldrynn have formed the Armethian Empire. Magic, technology, and the theocratic government known as "The Order" have strengthened the structure of the known galaxy. The might of the military have assimilated many races under its own rule through diplomacy and endless war. Yet now, in the Age of Adventure, demons from the sixth dimension have once again found their way to the primordial realm. Heroes and villains alike must choose their path to immortality, struggle to survive, and stop the hordes of darkness from consuming their own dimension.

You must choose your own destiny. Crush your enemies with fist, blade, gun, and spell. Complete quests and missions for adventure, reputation, glory, wealth, and power. Stand alone, or as a part of a crew of powerful allies that struggle within a dark and distant future. Become mighty warriors or spell casters. Become heroes or villains that can reign powerful enough to create their own empires, and command their own armies. Select from over 20 different alien races and over 20 different character classes. Build your character to become as powerful as the immortals with over 100 levels of advancement. Choose from hundreds of different level advancement abilities and talents within a system that is designed for endless gameplay. You may even continue playing powerful characters after their death with rules for an afterlife campaign that moves into the sixth dimension. Thus the spirit world, where you may one day reach the status of angel or demon. You will discover how eternal the universe is with rules that let you travel across the multiverse while adventuring to new worlds, star systems, and galaxies.

Chaos 6010 A.D. allows for a completely upgradeable game system, encouraging you to create your own worlds, alien races, weapons, spells, monsters, or anything else that you might wish to design. There are plenty of random tables to help you construct these ideas, and adapt them to the system. Endless adventures await game masters and players of fantasy / sci-fi role-playing.

Pray For Dawn (PDF)

The Pray for Dawn Module actually operates as a post apocalyptic, survival, horror campaign for use with the Chaos 6010 A.D. role-playing game. This module is 142 pages that detail an entire Necropolis where a group of adventurers awaken outside of the city on a pile of dead bodies. The players have had their memory wiped, they do not remember how they got there, where they are, or who each other is. They do know that it will be dark in a few hours, there is a storm coming, and the only place to take shelter is the apparent ghost town on the horizon.

Although this module was created as the first campaign setting for Chaos 6010 A.D. it can easily work for any post apocalyptic, modern, futuristic, or horror RPG. The pages detail each street and every building that exists within the city. Highlighted text allows for starting game masters to read each setting to players for easy play. This module can actually be played several times with different outcomes depending on which buildings the players choose to run and hide in; each one holds an entirely different nightmare. Each building contains a new story and a horrific bad guy to fight or flee from. This book contains maps, new weapons, narcotics, a chapter containing the cast of characters, and a chapter filled with different types of undead and monsters only found in the realm of Chaos 6010 A.D.

The players will quickly come to realize if they are good or evil, they will need one another to survive this night. They will form a crew that must stick together and use every skill and every resource to make it through one night of total hell. Will they make it till dawn or will they become a permanent addition to the city of the damned?

This is the revised edition of Pray for Dawn. The original does have more adult content, some nudity, very harsh language, drug use, and of course violence. This version of the book is intended for all ages to play. Of course you should still be warned of the censored harsh language, dark or violent themes, and terrifying horror you will encounter within these pages. This revision also has a few add-ons and is a printer friendly version.

Demon Gate core book (PDF)

An apocalyptic dark fantasy tabletop roleplaying game set within a feudal, medieval era. You are a survivor, an adventurer fighting for your soul in a world filled with darkness and monsters. Delve into the ancient ruins of races long dead and otherworldy beings lost to the teeth of time. The black towers of the Void Gods hold untold treasures and mystic artifacts that wield esoteric technology, or what we call "magic".

    The world Koth has suffered through the Apocalyptic Prophecies with the final tragedy yet to be fulfilled. The legends say that the world was once infested by demons and for eons they have been imprisoned. Now stories are spreading around the campfires of the dead rising from their graves and the very darkness of the Veil Myst coming to drag souls to the Black Plane. If this is true, the Demon Gate has opened, and it will take more than just heroes to stop it.

     Demon Gate uses the Chaos System for its mechanics. This system uses a resisted D20 for combat. You must roll to attack and defend. The skills and attributes part of the system uses a dice ladder mechanic d6 to d8, d10 to d12, d8+d6 to 2d8, etc. Increasing skills and attributes will grant you a greater dice pool to utilize in order to reach target numbers or resisted rolls. 

The core rulebook is 454 pages of a highly detailed world known as Koth! A planet where all races were once enslaved by the demon lords. Come and join the struggle to shatter the gate.

10+ Treasure: Dwarven Vault (PDF)

Our sixth 10+ Treasures volume features thirty magic items, including a burning sword that is but a fragment of its former self, a portable tunnel, a magical multitool, a potion that turns you into a dwarf (because some of these items are dwarf-only), and an eye that lets you shoot lasers!

There's also a selection of new dungeon gear, including air filters, spore grenades, and crossbow bolts that both stick to your targets and dissolve them from the inside.

Finally, as with every other 10+ Treasure volume we've included extensive notes on how we go about making magic items.

Call of Cthulhu Keeper Rulebook

Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft

The Old Ones ruled the earth aeons before the rise of man. Traces of their cyclopean cities can still be found on remote islands, buried amid the shifting desert sands, and in the frozen wastes of the polar extremes. Originally they came to this world from the stars. They sleep now, some deep within the earth or beneath the sea. When the stars are right they shall again walk the earth.

Call of Cthulhu is a tabletop roleplaying game based upon the worlds of H. P. Lovecraft. It is a game of secrets, mysteries, and horror. Playing the role of steadfast investigators, you travel to strange and dangerous places, uncover foul plots, and stand against the terrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. You encounter sanity-blasting entities, monsters, and insane cultists. Within strange and forgotten tomes of lore you discover revelations that man was not meant to know. You and your companions may very well decide the fate of the world.

This book, the Keeper Rulebook, contains the core rules, background, guidance, spells, and monsters of the game. It is intended for use by the Keeper of Arcane Lore (the Keeper) — that player who will present the adventure to the other players. You must have at least one copy of this book to play Call of Cthulhu. The other players, the Investigators, should have one or more copies of the Investigator Handbook, containing expanded rules for character creation, skills, occupations, equipment, and more.

Call of Cthulhu, 7th edition, is backwards-compatible with all other available Chaosium titles.

H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu for Beginning Readers

After the death of his great-uncle, Francis Wayland Thurston delves into the late Profesor Angell's effects... 

I was sorting through
all his research one day,
when I found a monstrosity
made out of clay.

Spurred on by his curiosity, Francis learns of many terrible things. The artist who came to his uncle for help. A raid in the Louisiana swamps, led by Inspector Legrasse. The sailor Gustaf Johansen. And, perhaps most importantly, the horrible fate of the Emma.

The most merciful thing 
in the world, I believe,
is humanity's failure
to fully conceive
of the cosmical horrors
we've yet to reveal,
and which up until now
I have tried to conceal

This 102-page adaption of H.P. Lovecraft's classic story was written and illustrated by R.J. Ivankovic.

Dungeon Room Descriptions

Need a Room descripotion? Need a Door? Need dozens and dozens of them? Then this product has you covered.

This contains both a PDF and Excel spreadsheet that can be used to create more than 44 Trillion unique descriptions that combine room and doors. To be exact - 44,285,477,827,500 combinations.

Absolutely crazy I know! I figured when I started I could come up with 1 million, but as I got going, it was easy to keep adding another fun notable, or ceiling feature, or door feature. And I could have kept going. But at some point I had to agree that I had enough, more than even a mega-dungeon would use!

This amazing number comes from a combination of 35,350 unique doors made from different materials, handles, latches, and features. Along with over 1.2 Trillion room descriptions created from combination of floors and floor features, ceiling shapes and features, walls features, and a selection of room notables.

Random Samples:

"The door is made of oaken planks, it has a turning handle and two dwarven warriors are carved in relief on the sides of this door. This room has roughly hewn stone floor that has small gravel and dirt strewn around. The floor is plain and bare. The ceiling is cathedral vaulted and shows no signs of note. Carved in relief upon these walls are one after another the shapes of twisted and corrupted figures. Their faces half melted into masks of twisted pain and terror. The remains of a small leather bound book that has been burned lies discarded along one wall."

"The door is made of quartzite, it has a double-sided iron bolt with keyed lock and a "V I" is scrawled in yellow chalk in the center of the door. This room has square marble tile floor. The floor is plain and bare. The ceiling is flat and shows no signs of note. A two foot high relief carved merchant's scale has been carved into the wall. The room appears empty."

"The door is made of redwood planks, it has a double-sided wooden bolt with keyed lock and the latch and handle appears much newer than the door. This room has clay bricks that have been laid down to form a solid floor. Line traces of violet light appear and disappear randomly across the floor. The ceiling is flat ceiling with coved edges and shows no signs of note. The wall to your right is covered in green moss. It is thick and damp and appears that water seeps from the stone behind it. The room appears empty."

"The door is made of wired together bones, it has a double-sided wooden bolt and a black 'X' is drawn across the inside of the door, it appears to have been done with tar. This room has smoothly hewn natural stone floor. The floor is plain and bare. The ceiling is barrel vaulted with ribs and shows no signs of note. Small wildflowers have been crudely painted all around the base of the walls. A crude statue of a horse made from bent metal rods and swords stand in the room.."

"The door is made of fir planks, it has a carved wooden handle and is otherwise plain. This room has limestone tile floor. The floor of this room is cracked and uneven, like a brick that has been shattered and crudely put back together. Finger width cracks run thorughout the room, making you wonder if the floor is stable. The ceiling is domed and shows no signs of note. Scratched in one corner in the common tongue is the memorial "Karl Died Here, Damn This Place". A pedestal about 3 feet high stands in the middle of the room and has a spire protruding from the top. The spire casts an unnatural shadow onto the floor as if it were a sundial, but there are no markings on the floor to judge if that is its intended function."

Children of the Apocalypse (PDF)

In the ruins of an ancient city, a band of treasure hunters seeks ancient artifacts to fuel the creations of a powerful Tinker Mage.  Armies trade musket fire across rolling hills as pikemen brace to receive a charge of monstrous shock troops.  An assassin in the service of the Goddess of Death and Disease sets a gunpowder charge beneath the foundations of a rival church.  A wizard faces down a psion in an arcane duel for possession of a trove of ancient texts.  All these adventures and more are daily occurrences in the world of Children of the Apocalypse, a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting for Savage Worlds.

Legend tells of how the ancient, technologically advanced civilization of Earth fell in the devastating War of the Gods.  The final blow in that war was a devastating plague that wiped out almost every living humanoid, with only a tiny fraction left to rebuild civilization.  Much has been achieved under the auspices of the Four benign deities, Iset (Justice and Learning), Edward (Magic and Psionics), Jonas (Tinkers and Scientists), and Rahel (Law and War).  New cities have risen, far from the haunted ruins of the old.  Lost technologies have been rediscovered, including the recent addition of gunpowder as a tool for construction and warfare.  Alongside these cities have also risen dominions of beastmen and other twisted creatures, some building cities and civilizations of their own.  There, and also in the shadows of the humanoid cities, the dark gods plot and plan, always seeking advantage but never pressing to the point of triggering another war of the gods.   But such a war is coming, and it will forever change the shape of the world.

Warsong, Second Edition - PDF

 There are secrets that they don't teach in school. Bookmarks in history books that point to pages that don't exist. The world that has been sold to us is not authentic. The sterile white rooms that test observable reality exist to protect us from the things that we might find out if we look for ourselves. Science would have you believe that everything that is has only existed for a finite period of time. Humans are only 200,000 years old. We'll celebrate our world's five billionth birthday in about half a billion years. The books will tell you that we were hunter-gatherers first. We emerged from evolution only recently. We're just a blink in the eye of the universe, hurling through space on a lonely rock. Alone in the universe with nothing on the other side of reality.


 We, and the world we live on, is far older than they tell us. There is another world that existed before. Before we evolved. Before the dinosaurs. Before the great ice ages. Before Jesus. Before Babel. Before Pangea. Before everything we know and everything that science teaches us there was a time of technology and magic. Of heroes and gods who walked among us. Of divine creatures barely removed from the birth of our world. This was a time before our eyes were blinded. Before our ears failed to hear the songs of the incarna. Before our souls withered away from the disconnection to the truth.

 This is the story we have forgotten.

 This is the Warsong.

Delve into the fantastic, futuristic world of Lemuria in Warsong, the Sengoku Punk role-playing game. This 362 page core book includes everything you need to play!

Shadowed Earth Cryptozoology #02: Otherworldly Beings (Savage Worlds)

We at the Inquisition like to think we know as much as humanly possible about the supernatural world that surrounds us every day. Unfortunately, that’s not only a daunting task, it’s almost impossible. We discover new chaotic beings often, new otherworldly beings summoned to Earth, and the remnants of non-human societies. It is with great displeasure that I concede to the overwhelming magnitude of the supernatural world and must admit that even the Inquisition remains partially naïve.

The Cryptozoology is a culmination of facts, theories, and speculations as researched and documented by the Inquisition. Each publication contains a collection of adversaries for use within Savage Worlds across all Shadowed Earth settings. Cryptozoology #02: Otherworldly Beings presents a collection of bizarre and weird beings of urban legends.

Cryptozoology #02: Otherworldly Beings includes:

  • 15 unique beings from urban legends
  • Descriptions for each entry
  • Illustration for each entry
  • A description of the classifications used throughout the series

Although Cryptozoology #02: Otherworldly Beings is designed for use in any Shadowed Earth setting, the adversaries can be universally placed within any Savage Worlds modern fantasy or horror adventure or setting.

Systematic Adventures #04: Scavenger Run (Savage Worlds)

The community is running low on supplies; they sent out a group to do some scavenging, but they haven’t returned. Hours ago, the group reported coming across an abandoned mall and were going to search it… that was six hours ago. Radio silence is making everyone nervous and they need a new team to find the scavenger group and investigate the mall.

Proceed with extreme caution! Zombies and mutants have been reported in the area.

Scavenger Run is a location-based adventure module usable with any zombie apocalypse or post-apocalyptic setting for Savage Worlds. It can be inserted into an ongoing campaign, run as a standalone adventure, or used as a launching point for a new campaign. It includes a full description of the location, NPCs, and all adversaries.

Scavenger Run utilizes the Ruined Mall map from DramaScape.

Fantastic Locations (PDF)

We RPG game masters have a lot of tools to help us run our roleplaying games. Our monster books and bestiaries give us piles of foes to throw at our adventurers. The various guides for game masters often give us non-player characters, treasures, and story-building tips.

One of the hardest parts of game mastering, however, is coming up with interesting adventure locations for our characters to explore. These locations need to be fantastic, detailed places that capture the minds of our players every session we run. Good locations are hard to improvise and often hard to strip out of a fully-fleshed-out adventure.

Sly Flourish’s Fantastic Locations gives you twenty system-agnostic locations to drop into your favorite fantasy roleplaying game. Each location builds on a fantastic theme, such as a mysterious ancient structure under the ice, a cursed castle of a mad king, a fallen celestial fortress, and a dwarven mine that cracked into the tomb of a dead god.

These sites and structures aren’t full adventures. Instead, you and your players build your own stories in these fantastic locations, then you populate them with the monsters that fit the story you and your players share at the table.

Herein are 5 unique alien races to further expand your adventures in the Fractured Future®

Ethernauts- post-human descendants of explorers altered forever by the ghostly legacy of a dead civilization, Ethernauts navigate the infinite mists of the Deep Ethereal, persuing grim quests and ancient vendettas inherited from eons long past.

Ezzana- forged in the lava vents of a hostile planet, the Ezzana were forced to flee to the stars in order to survive. Master gunsmiths, the Ezzana use specially crafted rifles to hunt the titanic predators that roam their blighted planet.

Qlaarpians- these amphibians lost control of their homeworld to the hated Aboleth mudlords, and now fight a crusade to reclaim their planet from the demons that rule their seas.

Ripper Dogs- they are known for cruelty, but that reputation isn't entirely fair. These creatures seek progress and self-improvement: higher states of being; perfection of flesh in metal. Only the evil ones exhibit wanton, sadistic cruelty for its own sake.

Un Men- cold traders, holo-mutes, these mockeries of humanity visit frontier space stations and smugglers' moon bases, trading exotic pharmaceuticals for cryogenically preserved human bodies -paying extra for the living kind.

new alien homeworlds, spacecrafts, and much more!
