Spite: A game of supernatural horror/action


There is a war. Angels and demons vie for supremacy over this world. Demons are repugnant, malicious, and destructive. Angels are worse.

You are a supernatural warrior on the front lines. Your mission is to hold back the armies of Heaven, to prevent them from obliterating a sinful and unrepentant humanity. You are outnumbered. You are expendable. You are a Zealot, and you are the only thing standing between the human race and utter annihilation.

If you fail, the Earth will inherit the meek.

Spite: The Second Book of Pandemonium is a new title from Neoplastic Press, the publishing imprint of video game writer-designer Rafael Chandler. A fast-paced game of supernatural horror-action, Spite is powered by the Disciple-12 rules system, which uses d12 pools for quick conflict resolution. Spite is 100% compatible with Dread: The First Book of Pandemonium.

Animalball Games Podcast New Episode

In this episode, the guys finally wade into the shady territory of actual play. If you have listened before, you know that the guys regularly deride other podcasts for having "actual play" episodes where they simply record their gaming session. Long time listeners will now that Mike and Kyle find this lazy and self-indulgent. But once they recognized that they also were lazy and self-indulgent, they decided it was time to change the world of actual play podcasts forever.

And what better game to showcase than the single greatest pick up and play game ever, Instant Game-- Animalball's free downloadable game. Mike rolls on the random setting, tone and plot charts at the beginning of the episode, and then they play out an entire Instant Game session in the span of this one hour episode. Are you a fan of actual play podcasts? Are you a fan of pick up and play games? Have you always wanted to try Instant Game but were frightened that your parents would shun you because of its rebellious and unpredictable nature? Then this is definitely the podcast for you.

Click here to listen. And once again, you're welcome.

MARS: Savage Worlds Edition

Welcome to Mars!

Not Mars as it is - airless, most likely lifeless, with only the faintest hints of what might have once been a damp, if not necessarily lush and living, world billions of years in the past. No, this is Mars as it should be and as it was once imagined to be - an ancient, dying, but not yet dead world, a world where a vast canal network reaches from pole to pole, bringing water and life to vast and fantastic cities. A Mars where albino apes run a vast empire in the last surviving jungle, a world where warrior tribes of Green Martians raid the outlying cities of the canal dwellers, a world where, in places dark and quiet and forgotten beneath the surface, ancient and terrible intellects plan dark and dire deeds.

It is a Mars of sky-corsairs, of duels with blade and blaster, of vile plots, fantastic inventions, daring rescues, arena battles, and spectacular stunts. It is a Mars where ancient cities can be discovered and their lost treasures plundered, a Mars where a trek across the dry sea bottoms can yield amazing discoveries, where terrible monsters roam the rocky wastes.

Adamant Entertainment's sword-and-planet campaign setting is now available for Savage Worlds!

Disease of an Evil Conscience

Contagion. Plague. Survival.

Out in the Scavenger Lands life is difficult, and compassion can seem like a dangerously unaffordable luxury. But despite the propaganda you might hear in the Realm about the savagery of those beyond the Threshold, most of the folk who call the Confederation of Rivers their home consider themselves good people. But what happens when the imperative to survive challenges one’s moral commitment to one’s fellows? Sacrifices have to be made, but when do the needs of the many justify the losses of a few?

A story in the Storytelling Adventure System for Exalted.

Disease of an Evil Conscience is our latest offering for Exalted in the Storytelling Adventure System. The file contains a number of hyperlinks to various portions of the text as well as bookmarks, so you can always jump right to what you need with just a click.

Disease of an Evil Conscience is available at RPGNow.com.

    Hard Boiled Armies for D&D 4E

    If you’re a fan of the fantasy novels of Glen Cook, J.R.R. Tolkien, and others—or maybe you just pine for the days of Birthright—you might just have an itch that needs scratching. It’s the itch to take armies onto the field of battle, where swords by the hundreds clash and contend for victory.

    There’s just one problem. Right out of the box, Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition does a lot for combat on the personal scale, but when it comes to the broader field of battle—when things go macro—the tools to handle a clash of thousands just aren’t there.

    Or are they? In Hard Boiled Armies, you’ll find an examination of how to take the existing tools in the game—with just a few additions and changes of perspective—to get right where you need to go for medium- and large-scale military conflicts. And by looking at these existing tools with new eyes, you’ll be able to add large scale battles to your game in a way that feels both fresh and yet completely familiar.

    Hard Boiled Armies is available at RPGNow.com.
