Pandemonio Released for Free!
Pandemonio is an updated “amalgamation” of the Book of Pandemonium role-playing games by Rafael Chandler, and this week he released it as an early Free RPG Day present! This bills itself as “a fast-paced game of splatterpunk action set in a world of violence and decay.” From the description:
“You’re a Disciple, a supernatural warrior on the front lines. Wielding bizarre magics like Sexpletive, Death Panel, Photobomb, and Gunfetti, you must hunt down the diabolical and divine, rescue innocent civilians, and maintain a grip on the tattered vestiges of your humanity. How far will you go to destroy your enemy? Will you resort to cannibalism? Are you certain? Listen, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.”
So far, I’ve only glanced through the Player’s Guide and already I’m blown away with the amount of brutal content that is given away here. There’s at least 75 pages of Magic that includes some of the most hardcore spell lists I’ve seen in a while. The artwork varies in styles but it’s all pretty perfect for an over the top, gruesome game. Plus, the system focuses on d12’s — it’s about time they get some more love!
If you’re looking for an off-colored modern day gore-fest of slaying angels and demons, you can’t go wrong with Pandemonio — especially at the cost of Free.
Chaos Hordes Released!
This week I discovered Prismatic GM’s old-school blog The Borderlands via re-posts sharing his latest project, Chaos Hordes. A compilation of his Fortnight of Chaos articles, the document is a collection of Warhammer Fantasy inspired write ups for various chaos marauders, demons and mutations for use with OSR-styled systems. I’ve always enjoyed the Warhammer setting and universe, but have always struggled to acquire or run the games with my groups. This fan project has delivered in all the right places, and now I’m seriously contemplating using it along with Lamentations of the Flame Princess to run a very “grim dark” setting.
Sigil & Shadow News:
I’ve started sharing with a select circle of peeps for possible play testing and feedback. Already have had some good ideas returned to me, and I’m hoping to get some more actual playtime in over the next couple weeks with some separate play groups.
That’s all I got for this week! Hope everyone has a good weekend (remember it’s Free RPG Day at participating game shops!)
