Tales From The Cryptworld: Pacesetter Horror Rises From The Grave!

For those folks who have been yearning for Pacesetter horror gaming to return from the dead, Goblinoid Games has announced the creation and imminent release of CRYPTWORLD, the new official Pacesetter horror game! Here's the press release:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * 
Goblinoid Games presents CRYPTWORLD, the new official Pacesetter horror RPG! Other than the zombie survival genre horror RPG, ROTWORLD, there has not been a Pacesetter horror game in print since the 1980s. CRYPTWORLD scratches and crawls forth from the grave!

CRYPTWORLD is a Pacesetter System horror game in which you play an investigator of the unexplained. Any kind of horror is possible, from hunting classic monsters to fighting the secret manipulations of interdimensional aliens, and much more! Be an independent hunter of the horrors in the world, or be a member of one of the several organizations provided, each with different motivations.

CRYPTWORLD handles many subgenres of horror. It is a complete presentation of horror rules, game advice, and creatures from different horror subgenres so that you can play any kind of horror game you prefer.
Coming Late September!

Now that the announcement has been made, I can unveil my participation as a coauthor. (Which also explains why some of my Mutant Future-y projects were set aside for the summer.) I'm incredibly pleased with how CRYPTWORLD turned out as it strikes just the right balance between "original" and "homage." More info to come as we get closer to the street release!

    This looks wonderful -- and you even got Jim Holloway to do the art!

  2. Sweet. Merciful. Crap.



  3. As a LONG time Chill fan this is so fantastic. I can't wait for my print copy to be shipped.
