The End is Near
It is October 1922 and a meteor is heading towards Eorthe.
Hysteria and despair spreads like wildfire.
Is this the end of Doggerland?


An unearthly madness strikes the citizens of Glimminge. At the observatory, an ageing astronomer is murdered as the meteor’s red glow intensifies by the hour. Amid doomsday heralds and a frantic population, the investigators must find the murderer before it strikes again. But what if it is already too late?

The Red Star is a standalone scenario for the Odd Soot roleplaying game, based on Mythras. It also forms the first part of the longer campaign A Falling Mind.

The campaign is written by Nils Hintze (Tales from the Loop, Vaesen, The Walking Dead) and Erik Hylander (Symbaroum). Illustrations by Clarence Redd.

The first reviews and comments are dropping in for The Red Star! And it's getting a lot of love:

“I’m absolutely in awe! The story set against the approaching meteor is a pressure cooker slowly turned to max. And then some.” Evan J.​
“The plot and immersive 1920s atmosphere had me hooked from the first page.” Nathan W.​
“The Red Star is like the missing link between Vaesen RPG and Tales from the Loop. Nils Hintze and Erik Hylander has brought their wonderfully low-key weirdness to Odd Soot.” Lily A.​

Thanks everyone who bought the books! I wish you many hours of reading and playing. And here are the titles for the upcoming books:

Book II - What We Carry With Us. The PCs embark on an expedition across the North Atlantic, to find the meteor’s impact site. But the competition is fierce from two other teams - who will get there first?
Book III - The Giggling Iceberg. The expeditions have reached the impact site, only to find the massive space rock fully intact - a red island in the middle of nowhere. Do they dare go ashore? And what are the geometric patterns cut into the icy rock?

Just a quick reminder that the 15% launch discount on The Red Star and Comae Engine ends tonight!

The release has been a tremendous success. We reached #1 in Hottest Small Press on DriveThruRPG, we delivered more books in a single week than ever before and comments have been exuberantly positive. Like this one from Murallas Blancas:

”Wow, my first look at the two volumes is very positive. The Red Star is an intriguing case and displays a lot of good work. The Comae Engine is a suggestive proposition and includes powerful artwork from cover to interior.” Thorkrim O.

EN World Interview
EN World will also publish an interview in a few days with the writers of The Red Star - Nils Hintze and Erik Hylander. They talk about the ideas behind the campaign and their previous work with Free League, adding a bit of background to the project. Highly recommended!

Remember, the launch discount ends tonight. Tomorrow, prices go back to normal again. Here are the links one more time:

The Red Star
Print $16 $13.60 (Softcover, Full colour, 84 pages, Free PDF included)
