Heroes in a World of Horror!

Selected Option:

Maybe you can’t bring yourself to believe the horrid truth.

Perhaps you’re too innocent to face reality.

Or possibly you’re trying to run away from what you know is out there.

It’s time to wake up, open your eyes, and turn to face the monster pursuing you. 

In the face of the swallowing darkness, all those who can must help push back its encroaching evil.   

Heroes in a World of Horror! is a sourcebook for Players and Directors about to embark upon a story of They Came from Beyond the Grave!, providing you with new playable Archetypes and a diverse selection of characters you can play straight from the book for the 1970s era and the 19th century era of the game!

They Came from Beyond the Grave! uses the Storypath System, which you can find in the pages of the They Came from Beyond the Grave! rulebook.

Heroes in a World of Horror! includes:

  • Three playable Archetypes — the Skeptic, the Kid, and the Escapee.
  • Eight ready-made characters complete with character sheets so you can start playing immediately!
  • Scene setting and story-provoking fiction to immerse yourself in a world of horror involving the characters between these pages.

They Came From Camp Murder Lake!They Came From Camp Murder Lake!

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.

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.
