Unglorious RPG: Corebook | Unglorious - Ferryman's Screen | Unglorious - Sea of Bones | Unglorious - Lead of the Dead by Aces Games
  • SYSTEM: unique
  • PRODUCT TYPE: hardcover core rules/screen/softcover supplements
  • RETAIL PRICE: $49/$20/$29/$29
  • DESCRIPTION: In Unglorious, the PCs are dead. Many of them died stupid deaths. Some don’t even have a body left to mourn. The PCs find themselves in the Orchard, the world of the dead, a metropolis inhabited by unliving corpses. So the PCs die. And then the PCs embark on an adventure not of a lifetime but of a time after life. They face all that the World of Mora throws at them. They get a Death Certificate (character sheet) and a rusty sword and set off. Of course it's rusty! After all, it died too. While Death Certificates are important, the Ferryman's Screen is the ultimate expression of bureaucratic and regulatory control of the world of the dead. Initially designed to conceal the depressing faces of the Pities, now it has become a set of rules and advice. Features three panels of art and 14 tables ranging from the Dead Creation to the Marketplace of the Orchard. Unglorious - Sea of Bones sets post-mortem adventures in the Age of Undead Buccaneers. Includes the setting of the Sea of Mora and the Sea of the Orchard, a new Funerary Equipment including ships, rules for maneuvering ships, four new Types of Dead, crew roles, seven bestiary profiles, and an adventure in which the PCs face the waters of the Sea of Mora and those of the Orchard to conquer a precious, and equally dangerous, treasure. Lead of the Dead presents the Fronti-Era. The PCs saddle their horses (or what's left of them), charge their six-shooters, and rise again in the deserts of the Re-Dead Valley. Contains: background of the Fronti-Era; the Re-Dead Valley setting with 11 new areas to explore; riding rules, rules for fistfights and shootouts, Fame and bounties, new Funerary equipment including new weapons and new powers, four new Deceased Types, new Bestiary Profiles, and an adventure that puts the PCs on the heels of the vile Badjamin Redhead’s gang.
