Light of the Moon

Suggested Price $5.00


Another world exists, its denizens going about their business away from the watchful eyes of humanity. They lurk in the deep woods, live in abandoned structures and carry on without a care in the world. That was until recently, at least. In recent years the world of humans and the world of cryptids has started to overlap. Paranormal events are drawing the attention of the layman and powerful organizations alike. It's a dangerous world for a group of cryptids to step into, but there may no longer be a choice.

Light of the Moon is a Tabletop Role Playing Game (TTRPG) that focuses on the monster's side of supernatural scenarios. In this system each player controls their own cryptid, working with the rest of their party to achieve their goals together while keeping their existence on a need-to-know basis. Their primary concern will be the humans that almost always live nearby. The threat of discovery or capture is constant as the party makes daring forays into the world of the humans, hoping each time to come back in one piece. These daily fights for survival will be the main source of tension for players as they navigate a pair of worlds that continue to violently collide.

Play as your favorite cryptids!


Light of the Moon provides a wide variety of cryptid species to choose from during character creation. These species act as guidelines for the character creation process, helping players create a specific kind of cryptid. Players are also free to totally disregard these species and create their own crytpid species during character creation. The sky's the limit!

Use a variety of abilities!


Each player character will have a few traits and flaws that make them who they are. The traits found in this sourcebook include abilities like flight, hypnosis and blood draining. Flaws are the other side of this coin, balancing out player characters with some drawbacks. You'll find flaws such as a bad temper, being hunted by a certain person or group and specific weaknesses like fire or silver.

Explore Newshire!


While the setting for Light of the Moon is entirely up to you, it comes with the default setting of Newshire. A small, coastal town in Maine. Newshire used to be a quiet town where nothing much happened, until recently. In the past few years Newshire has become a hotspot of paranormal activity. Strange creatures have been sighted in the woods. Unexplained objects dart through the sky each night. This has attracted the attention of a specific branch of the FBI, the Office of Paranormal Investigation.

This sourcebook comes with a list of locations in Newshire, paranormal events that occur there and stats for major NPCs that the players might encounter.

Thanks so much for your interest!

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.
