Great suggestion! I've used Foundry a little bit. VTT packs are something I'm interested in doing.
Thanks so much! It was a blast playing with you! I'm going to release the Origins scenario as a demo/one-shot pdf soon.
Rebels of the Outlaw Wastes is a gonzo retro-dystopian tabletop rpg, now available as a playtest PDF. You play misfit outlaws fighting fascist overlords in a dangerous but beautiful post-apocalyptic world. You create your own world with a single-page questionnaire, tilted towards bright, hopeful, and colorful rather than grimdark like most post-apoc settings. The rules are player-first and take inspo from contemporary systems like FitD and PbtA, but tailored for fast-paced and over-the-top storytelling. Character advancement uses STICKERS! As you complete achievements for different skills, you add badge stickers directly to your character sheet that add new uses and effects for the skill.
The playtest version is free to download here:
How bout a family-friendly version of the character sheet and stickers that say "Kickbutt" instead of "Whoopass"? I'd be happy to do that. My intended audience is older, it might be a bit of a challenge to make an age-appropriate version of the full rules.
Rookwood Roots is live! 16 playable scenarios for use with The Curse of the House of Rookwood.

Fillable sheets are now available! Feedback welcome -- if there is anything else you'd like to see, please let me know!
Thanks for asking! That's a fairly quick task -- check back in a day or two and I should have something for you!
A really good take on Silent Hill or No-End House style stories as a ttrpg. Makes great use of the Trophy/Ruled by Night system to create character-driven survival horror that can go horribly wrong, while also giving players a lot of tactical options in play that lead directly into narrative. Jam-packed with maps, points of interest, and eerie ephemera to fuel your incursion to the Island.
The physical book is now available on Indie Press Revolution!
Another weird joint from Rookwood designer/writer, Brian! Keep it weird, friend!
If you are a fan of Trophy, check out Brian's Trophy Gold incursion, Sea of Dust! It was selected as first runner-up for the 2020 Trophy Gold Incursion Contest.
Hello to all of the new folks discovering The Curse of the House of Rookwood. If you are looking for an example of play, please check out the actualplay podcast by fans of the game at Project Derailed. Set in Connecticut in the 1970s, their tale draws inspiration from Dark Shadows and other 70s horror.
Wow, AtaraxiaN, that sounds like a fantastic adventure! I love the creative use of your characters' Gifts to overcome enemies and challenges. A will reading is a great hook, and the hidden keys sound like a fun problem to solve. Thanks for playing!!! <3 <3 <3
