Get ready for OSR gothic fantasy in the style of Castlevania, Vampire Hunter D, and The Witcher!

The Machines conquered us. The Vampires saved us. Now all Christendom lies under their rule.

In the gothic future of The Shadow of Golgotha, the vampire scions of Christ have carved up the known world amongst themselves. Their nobility and Church rain down prosperity, for the small price of hot red blood.

But the forests and moors are still haunted by gruesome creatures, from clockwork mutants to Death Herself. Lady Regina Drake and the Ruby Paladin grapple for power in the heartland, while Mother Medusa and her anchoresses plot their heresies on the frontiers.

Now is the time for bastard children, defrocked nuns, and gasoline witches to make their mark, to solve the murders of monks and sack crimson cathedrals, to explore Earth's longest nights beneath...

The Shadow of Golgotha!

This book includes:

  • A complete gothic fantasy setting.
  • 32 monsters with special abilities, crit effects, and rumor tables.
  • Detailed tools to randomly generate settlements, including regions, landmarks, troubles, and quirky inhabitants.

All you'll need is your favorite old school game to put under the hood!

This setting previously appeared in the standalone noir game Miserable Secrets, which is not required for play.

Just some quick words...there are few, if any, rules per se in the book, most of it is setting and a couple of monsters. HOWEVER, the setting itself is super-evocative even though it does not overflow with details. To any experienced GM, those setting [...]

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.
