The Vampyre of Mons


The Vampyre of Mons is co-operative game of exploration, adventure and horror by Darkmook Paper Miniatures & Water Closet Press. Debuting at Thought Bubble 2015 in the UK and originally limited to only 30 copies for the initial print run, this is now available digitally as an RPGNow! exclusive!

Set in the dark days of the Great War, The Vampyre of Mons is designed for 1-6 players and sees heroic (and not so heroic!) British troops and their mysterious allies facing the horrors of the Vampyre Lord's castle, where the very building itself plots to aid in their demise!

Using the latest version of the Darkmook Paper Miniatures Survival Horror rules, all you need to do is print and construct the components, grab some 6 sided dice and a standard deck of playing cards and you are ready to start your adventure!

The Castle at Mons
The castle is constantly shifting and changing, which is reflected by the Vampyre player adding used room tiles back into the tile deck and shuffling them at the end of each round. For those trapped in the castle, retreat is impossible!

‘Wasn’t the library this way?’
‘Nonsense private, it’s over here. At least, it was when I last checked...’
The Castle at Mons is a dark and forsaken place. It shifts and warps, trapping those on whom its master would feed.

Playing cards

Playing cards are used to discover what awaits the players in any given room; a supernatural relic, armour and health, deadly environments or vicious foes-it's all in the cards!

Eldritch Mist

The shot rang in the chamber, held by the demonic smog. Unseen, something shifted closer to them.

A thick mist pours from the walls and rises from the floor, obscuring the horrors of the castle.

The Crucifix

The priest turned the crucifix over in his hands with a boyish grin as the Beast drew near.

‘Ask and ye shall receive.’

The castle is littered with the remains of past visitors; notebooks, rations and the Weapon of God. With these and these alone, can the Beast finally be put to rest.

Fear and Death

Fear plays an important part in The Vampyre of Mons; failing a fear test at the wrong moment can spell your doom, and perhaps that of your comrades!

The private froze. His body was stone. He became aware of the blood in his veins. So did the Beast.

Even the bravest soldier can be powerless before true evil, becoming little more than another shivering, defenceless victims.

However, inside the castle, death is not always the end...

‘Come on Willy, don’t die on me.’ 

The colour drained from Willy’s face and his pupils became predatory pinpoints.

‘Oh, I’m not dead. Not yet.’

The Beast is master of all in his castle. Even a body, once its soul has departed, becomes his property.

Sorry Chad K and Dillard R for the terribly late reply!

CHAD K: The Thing is definitely on my bucket list of sets to do; time willing they will get to he drawing board at some point!

DILLARD R: The rules are fully self-contained; no other games required!

Apologies again guys for the late response!

Any chance of doing a set for John Carpenter's THE THING (1982)?
Childs, Macready, Blair, Windows, Nauls (on skates!), twisted alien creatures, dogs, all the characters for Outpost #31.
It would be an awesome set.

Is this self-contained or do I need to have the Survival Horror Rules the wording is a bit unclear?

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.
