The Horror Game

Watermarked PDF

"Definitely a solid book."

-- DM NerdBound, the AfterSession Podcast

Jason, Freddy, and Michael.  Zombies, aliens, fifty foot lizards, throat slashers and head bashers.  The world has had a long standing love for movies with really evil bad guys.  So much so that the first name alone is enough to evoke images of these bad guys – but no one can remember the heroes that defeated them!

The Horror Game allows players to step into those horror movies as either the bad guy, or the good guys who are slowly getting killed off one by one.  Death has never been so much fun!

Unlike most role playing games that have complex rules and run for months before the game is resolved, The Horror Game is designed with a simple set of rules geared towards being played from beginning to end in a few hours – about the same amount of time as watching a horror movie or two.

It’s also designed to be a starting place for people who’ve been curious about role playing games, but were intimidated by the huge stack of books their geeky friends had in their backpacks, and the odd looking sacks of dice.  All that’s need is a copy of the book, a few players, at least three plain old six-sided dice, and a thirst for blood!

For experienced gamers The Horror Game is a great “filler” game for those nights when all the players aren’t going to show up, or to introduce a new friend to the concept of role playing games.

Included are complete rules for players and game masters  – no expansion books are necessary.  Also included are six pre-made bad guys and scenarios, and completely rules for creating new scenarios from your favorite horror movies!  (Plus, hosts even more scenarios for those who lack the time or imagination to create their own!)

Very big fan of Horror games and a bigger fan of "lite rules". This game fits the bill in both categories. An easy to understand system (was up and running in less than 30 minutes) that plays very well. Only suggestion would be - GIVE US MORE [...]

The Horror Game is a great “rules light” horror game focused on quickly creating characters, monsters, and scenarios with enough flexibility to build a wide variety of situations. With the system you can probably replicate just about any of your fa [...]

Even though horror-style stuff isn't really my thing, this book was incredibly smooth, and managed to creep me out with the examples. Even better, it's priced to sell, and though you won't find huge loads of art, it would just get in the way anyways (a [...]

Original electronic
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.
