You run as fast as you can, but there he’ll be, right behind you whenever you look over your shoulder.

You can hide under the bed, and it might be the last place she checks, but I promise she’ll check.

You can riddle their body with bullets, gouge at their flesh with blades, run over them with your car, but they’ll be lurching back to life as soon as you’re out of shot.

The creatures, the entities, the killers, the slashers from Camp Murder Lake and elsewhere will never stop their spree. 

But maybe, just maybe, you might be the sole survivor at the end of the movie.   

They Came from Camp Murder Lake! is a sourcebook for Players and Directors wanting to embrace the thrills and horrors of the 1970s and 1980s slasher movie genre, when arguably, it was at its peak.

This game presents everything you need to play a terrifying horror movie in the style of Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and every other favorite of the slasher set.

Just making sure do I need to have They Came From Beyond the Grave! in order to have all the rule to run a game?

Hi,

If we purchased the advanced PDF when should we expect the discount code for the physical book? I'm looking forward to getting that. I like pdfs and all but physical books are my preferred medium for consumption!

Thanks,
Rob

Loving the book, but I have to ask will the final version have a cabin in the woods location?

It's doubtful we'll be adding anything more substantial to the text as the book's already laid out. It would make for an excellent small product on the Storypath Nexus, however!

Are there enemy creation tools

Not in the sense of a character creation system, no, but it contains a ridiculous variety of enemies, which when added to the Beyond the Grave! roster, pretty much covers everything you'll need for any horror story.

Any chance we'll eventually see quip decks and a screen centered around this supplement?

Do you think an addition of insect/animal swarms would work as antagonist?, maybe due to toxic runoff, nuclear plant, etc… seen a lot of environmental retribution films that fit the slasher archetype pretty well…

That's because we're still in the errata phase. We update the PDF with the errata after two weeks.

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.
