Risus: A Kringle in Time

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$14.95

From the lights of New York City to the dark woods of old Wales ...
From the catacombs beneath Jerusalem to the gingerbread cottages of the North Pole...

A light shines in a manger. Another glows from a reindeer's nose. Another moves in the shadows, a spectre of the dead.

A darkness falls over Christmas.

An unforgettably naughty comedy.

A satisfying, meaty, g**-damn-that-was-good epic campaign adventure.

... That's a breeze to prep for?

Yes, Virginia, there is... A Kringle in Time

In the pages of A Kringle in Time, you'll find equal portions of mad GMing confidence and what-the-f**k surprises (for yourself and for your players), from the admittedly wicked and possibly warped mind of S. John Ross. Some features at a glance:

  • Lavishly illustrated and mapped in the Mighty Risus Manner, with more than a hundred works of (stick)art to draw you into Kringle's world.
  • Spiffy printable handout clues, to give your players things to think deep and meaningful thoughts about, pass back and forth, and doodle on.
  • Locations ranging from the intimate to the epic, from crashing with new friends in a Greenwich Village apartment to exploring the streets of ancient Jerusalem. The adventure's cartography is scribbled to the same exacting standards as the illustrations.
  • Rather a lot of sex, cannibalism, blasphemy and iconoclasm. Usually two or three of them at once.
  • Game Master-friendly writing and organization, including notes on how to expand or contract the adventure at critical points, to customize it to your group's pace and available schedule
  • Conflicts both martial and personal. Battle for the confused soul of a cult leader, engage in gut-wrenching duels of Christmas caroling, and beat the crap out of evil snow creatures, ancient demons, and the two-fisted studliness of Santa Claus himself.
  • Encounters with Christmas and historical icons, although none of them are quite what the players might expect: Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim, King Herod the Great and Baby Jesus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen - and the unbridled sex appeal of Mrs. Claus.
  • Horror, heroism, humanity, humor, history, hubris ... and shameless alliteration.
  • Every one of the more than 46,000 words of Kringle are geared for where the good stuff happens: with your friends at the gaming table, with encounters designed to draw PCs into conversations they'd never thought they'd have, battles with foes they never thought they'd meet, and toward making choices they'd never imagined they'd one day make. This is a bigass adventure that demands to be played, and one that you'll want to run every year as a holiday tradition.

A Kringle in Time is an 85-page PDF designed for clean printout on any home or office printer, with colors and type selected for clear reading even on inexpensive black-ink bubblejets but supporting spiffy color laser output if you're in the mood to splurge. It requires a copy of Risus: The Anything RPG to play.

I had the pleasure of playing Kringle with the creator, S. John Ross. It was an amazingly fun, and irreverent experience that I wish everyone could enjoy. Kringle is a mini-campaign in which the PC's must save christmas from itself! This is guaranteed [...]

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.
