The Stars Are Right: Acthung! Cthulhu

 It is released!!

That's right, it's Acthung! Cthulhu for the PDQ system. Look at the big guy up there, he's never been happier. Just to recap, this is a stand-alone RPG product using the PDQ system which includes new rules for combat, gear and (of course) insanity and madness. Along with the rules you get the Three Kings adventure, the first adventure in Modiphius' Zero Point campaign series. If you're interested you can get the pdf (currently 5 bucks off) from RPGnow right here.

And of course I'm still looking for playtesters for Battle Royale, head over to if you're interested.

Dread: It's like 80's night, with Zombies!

You never know what sort of concepts will set your players off and during this game session I found out one such "button" for one of my on-again-off-again gaming groups: Zombie the 80s!

The moment they heard this the radio was tuned to an all-80's channel, hair was tousled...costumes were worn. I was frightened.

The game was Dread (a jenga-based, horror rpg) and I was trying it out with something fairly simple and straightforward and I set it in the early 80s to take advantage of Cold War paranoia...I did not know what I was getting myself into.

You can listen to the game here

Still on the lookout for playtesters for Battle Royale!
