Here’s a look at today’s new, third party, accessory, and diversion releases.
Misfit Studios recently launched a new series of fantasy supplements, called Forces of Darkness, for Pathfinder. They are continuing that series with Savage Worlds versions of their supplements, starting with Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here]. “Forces of Darkness – Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes presents a demon who isn’t interested in your player characters’ souls, or setting the universe on fire. Instead, her interests lie in discovering the best-hidden secrets of your campaign world and revealing them for all to see, spreading chaos and disorder through their revelation. No one – governments, priesthoods, celestial beings, or even other demons – is safe from her desire to reveal their deepest, darkest secrets. What secrets do your players have, and can they keep them safe from her Thousand Eyes?” Written by Robert H. Hudson, Jr., it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Forces of Darkness – Zunirei of the Thousand Eyes (SW).

Call of Cthulhu
Chaosium has released a pair of publications for Halloween; a new Call of Cthulhu scenario, Canis Mysterium [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here], and a new Miskatonic University Monograph, Horror Stories from the Red Room [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here]. ” Constable Clark of Coldwater Falls, was desperate for attention. He’d been in touch with every sanatorium and hospital from New York to Boston and there’s not an empty bed to be found since the stock market crash last year. They’re full to brimming with suicidal businessmen and investors. He’s holding a man in his jail exhibiting some rather… extraordinary behaviors. The delusion is complete and total — he walks on all fours and he won’t speak a word. They say he even eats out of a bowl and refuses utensils! Not a shred of human behavior left in him.” Both are available from the Chaosium webstore: Canis Mysterium and Horror Stories From The Red Room.
Neoplastic Press [visit their website here] has pulled together a pair of previous releases into a new modern horror RPG called Pandemonio. “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.” Written by Rafael Chandler, it’s available for Pay What You Want from DriveThruRPG: Pandemonio.
Crooked Staff Publishing [visit their website here] has released their latest generic universal Into the Wilderness map set for universal use. “Into the Wilderness: Map 5 is a map-pack by Crooked Staff Publishing that depicts the layout of a single wilderness encounter area (in this instance an area of marshland).” Designed by Kristian Richards, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Into the Wilderness: Map 5.
Cubicle 7 Entertainment [visit their website here] has released a fiction anthology of World War Cthulhu to coincide with the mass release of the new core rulebook. ” As the shadows of war gather over Europe something is stirring within the darkness; something far older than humankind. Those with evil intent will seek to harness these terrible powers, while those fighting to turn the tide of war will find themselves up against far more than bullets and bombs. In forgotten R’lyeh, Cthulhu stirs as the mighty armies of the Third Reich march.” Written by James Lovegrove, Weston Ochse, Rebecca Levene, Robin D. Laws, Simon Bestwick, Gaie Sebold, T.P. Pike, Sarah Newton, Greg Stolze, Paul Finch, John Llewellyn Probert, Jonathan Green, Archie Black and Lavie Tidhar, it’s available for purchase from the Cubicle 7 webstore: World War Cthulhu – Fiction Anthology eBook.
Chaosium has released a new collection of horror stories for Halloween in their latest fiction anthology Undead & Unbound. ” Nineteen tales take the undead to their limits. From the distant past to the far-flung future, and to all corners of the Earth, the undead are eternal and everywhere: symbiotes, parasites, monster mash-ups and ghoulish grins, bleak tales of inescapable dread, an ancient evil from a far-away land with unspeakable dietary needs, a boy and his…well, it’s not a dog. History is brought to (un)life. Ghosts, specters, phantoms and haunts of every sort. Not-so-easily-classifiable stories that do new things with the basic premise of what’s alive, what’s dead, and what’s neither.” It’s available for purchase from the Chaosium webstore: Undead & Unbound.
