vs. Stranger Stuff

Watermarked PDF

Adolescent Supernatural Mischief in the 1980's!

Using the VsM Engine created by Phillip Reed!

vs. Stranger Stuff is a mini-rpg of 80’s inspired adventure/horror/ sci-fi, typically involving children and teens. Of course we were in influenced by the recent hit Netflix series Stranger Things, but also those great films that inspired that series. What does this mean? It means that a game of vs. Stranger Stuff will involve you playing an adolescent during the 1980’s going against strange and unusual adversaries (often supernatural) with the aid of your loyal group of childhood friends. 

vs. Stranger Stuff is a complete roleplaying game using the VsM Engine in a slimmed down and quick to use format. Experienced gamers will have no problem creating interesting characters, learning the rules, and starting a game. All you need is paper, pencils, and a deck of playing cards.

Ace is the highest card, 1 is the lowest. Which case should it be in the vs.M? (It seems the rulebook never cover this.) Please advise.

Hello, Editor of vs. Stranger Stuff here...

In vs. Stranger Stuff, Aces are ALWAYS HIGH (equal to 14).

Sorry, that was a piece that got clipped out of the book in adapting our vs. Ghosts to vs. SS as we were simplifying fighting mechanics and in vs. Ghosts, Ace was always "the better number" either 1 or 14. This mattered as during combat, after using HIGH to hit, you needed LOW to deal damage.

But Ace is always "the best result possible" in vs. M Engine books.

Great system. Easy to pick up. One small error:

I'd be surprised if that's the only error (I'm the editor -- by the way).

It currently says:

If you want to something beyond the standard you’ll need to talk to the GM first.

If you remove the "to" or as you suggested added "have" after it -- it would fix it.

We're currently in the process of revising the revised rules (we revised these rules once for Send in the Clowns [see here: ] ) but we're planning a Season 2 edition.

Once we get those out, I'm going to try to trick Rick into reworking this version -- but don't tell him yet ;)

Thanks for pointing it out though, if you find more, let us know!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
