|Wellstone City (softcover)|
Good people live and work in the city. They carry out their lives and they try to ignore the crime and vice that exists all around them.
This is not their story.
This is not their City.
This is Wellstone.
Life in the big city is tough, no matter if you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel or living high on the hog. The worth of a man is often measured by the price on his head and the amount of lead needed to bring him down. There is money to be made as long as you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, no matter what side of the law you’re closest to.
Inside these pages you will find:
Full bookmarks for all chapters and major sections in the book
New Edges, Hindrances, and Setting Trappings geared for the dark alleys and gritty streets of Wellstone City
Over 50 pages of setting description and a detailed history of Wellstone City
NPCs, Crime Families and Organizations, Locations, and important people in the city
An introductory adventure, Public Transit Assassins
Public Transit Assassins is an adventure for Novice level characters or higher that demonstrates that life in Wellstone is tough. Sometimes you have to walk to a job, sometimes you have to do what you can with what you have; sometimes you have to take the bus.

PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF HORROR TO THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE! From the Award Winning Developers of OUTBREAK: UNDEAD...
Outbreak: Deep Space is a Sci-Fi Survival Horror RPG that allows you to create your own nightmare world in the realm of Deep Space. Created using the same gritty, deadly, and unforgivable settings that you’d expect from the creators of Outbreak: Undead.
O:DS is a open world system that allows you to build 3 types of settings of Horror:
Creatures who mutate or bend the laws of nature, be it man-made or extraterrestrial.
Aliens with vastly superior technology to our own. This isn't war, it's slaughter.
Trans Dimensional -
Vast Horrors from another reality, bending time and space and twisting the minds of man in it's wake.
Choose from a wide variety of Character options, even use yourself as a template to build off of for immediate immersion!
Fluid Chracter Advancements and Unique party Roles (be the 'morale center', or 'gun nut' of the group!).
Fully customizable gear options to make any weapon, armor or device your sci-fi imagination can devise!
Go on GM designated 'Missions' to earn Survival Points and unlock a Finale to your Survival Horror Adventure!
As your players generate 'RISK' with their actions, you can choose to use RISK to purchase a wide variety of hazards and upgrades during the game!
A simple Encounter Based System, which keeps gameplay either scripted and structured, or fast and loose!
Run Single Session Horrors or Sweeping Campaigns of Terror
Build Dread Slowly, or create action/adventure moments of gameplay!
Random Scenario Generators
No two games will ever be alike, as the ability to generate random scenario objectives, will allow a GM to experiment and weave narratives to link the randomly generated events together. Storytelling just got a lot easier now that you know the main plot points! The GM is always free to invent their own objectives and, more importantly, their own dramatic endings
We don't ask the Question *If* you're going to die. But *how* and *what will you accomplish* in that time?

|Choice of Mazes and Perils Deluxe Edition or The Snakes Heart adventure for M&P (Softcover)|
Mazes and Perils Deluxe Edition
The Mazes & Perils Role-playing Game (MnP) takes a page from the first wave of the Old School Renaissance (OSR) when it wasn’t OLD at all… Inspired by the 1977 “Holmes” edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game, it shuns pages and pages of rules for a simpler time when House rules were the order of the day.
First released in 2012, MnP drew a line on the map of OSR retroclones as something easy to pick up and play where your heroes weren’t superheroes. There are no superpowers here. Fighters have swords and armor. Clerics have their faith. Thieves skulk in the shadows seeking better items to steal. And Magic-Users sling magics at their foes until they run out of spells. This style of gaming is about grit and wit – and if you die, it must be time to roll up a new character.
The original book was awarded a Gold Ennie Award in 2013 for "Best Free RPG" and now we've updated it with even more great content!
Now in 2016, Vince Florio and I have been working on a new version of MnP – with some new classes, new spells, new optional rules, and a new look! Mazes & Perils Deluxe offers everything you liked about the original with a new coat of paint and a few new tools in the toolbox! New bits include:
New Class – The Enchanter – along with 20+ new spells in his arsenal
New Class – The Shaman – along with nearly 20 new spells of his own
Rules for Variable Damage for Weapons and Variable Hit Dice
New layout, more art, and plenty of editing
Come check out a blast from the past and see why OSR is alive and well!
The Snake's Heart
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re excited to finally release the revised version of The Snake’s Heart for Mazes & Perils to the world. This is a greatly expanded version of the adventure we first released in 2015 for Swords & Wizardry.
Old adventure: 4,000 words, 19 digest-sized pages (including cover)
New adventure: 12,500 words, 34 full-sized pages (including front and back cover)
Stats redone for Mazes & Perils
Maps completely redone by Kris McDermott (Elhann village map) and George Fields (all of the tower maps)
Art has gone from 3 pieces and a piece of clip art to 5 custom pieces from Del Teigeler, Peter Saga, and Mickey Fitzpatrick, new spot art, and a custom new layout and cover from layout artist Robert Denton
The new book has 25 pages of content, with details on:
The Village of Elhann
The Cult of the Serpent Queen
The Serpent Queen herself
Clerics of the Serpent
And new magic items
