  • DESCRIPTION: This zine is a generator that creates a dangerous crawl across a zealot-filled city for one to four PCs (Level 3 for D&D). The island city of Wotta Rue is overrun by frothing zealots on a quest to purify and convert the city for the Zealous Order of Kol Ban R. Some have followed the Order willingly, some have been somehow charmed or manipulated into it, and still, others have been frozen in place by a cruel spell. The four bridges leading out of the city are each guarded by a different mysterious foe. The PCs must escape the city. Includes: GMless and solo play, using a standard playing card deck to generate locations and encounters, unique Secrets mechanic that describes the bridge guard, random tables, oracles, bestiary, and NPCs. Vampire Cruise. This one is a winner and I ran it using Troika! Maps, mummies, mutiny, random tables, and every kind of vampire. Luxury. Death. Trip. A supposedly fun thing you’ll have to do for eternity. PCs hear stories the ship was dredged from the sea floor and they had to clear out buckets of drowned fish before building staterooms. Stories about the Captain who’s never seen before midnight. About the unsettling shape of the boxes that were loaded into the darkness of the lower decks. The woman who told them all the rumors is now handing out pamphlets that say ’ Is Death Real?’ on the cover. Then the PCs wake up woozy in their cabin next to a note that says “deck 13 at noon. bring something sharp” indicating something ain’t right. On the other hand there's a ping pong tournament.

This world is in a perpetual state of decay and is populated by disharmonious men and women, hostile monsters, and weird, alien beings. The Late Trapper's Lament is an adventure in Hyperborea for characters of 1st through 2nd level. The PCs are marines aboard a cog called Otherworldly Obelisk. The ship has berthed in Ragnarrheim, a Viking town of New Vinland, with plans to continue to Port Zangerios, but some of the expected cargo has not arrived. The local trapper was due hours ago with a bundle of valuable ermine pelts.
