Sine Nomine's Silent Legions on Sale for $15.99 at DriveThruRPG until May 31

Recommended Posts


As part of its May D&D Sale*, DriveThruRPG has discounted Silent Legions from Sine Nomine Publishing to $15.99 from $19.99 through the end of May. 


Silent Legions is a game of modern-day Lovecraftian horror, one carefully designed to support sandbox adventures by hard-bitten investigators and fearless hunters of the dark. Its clean, lightweight old-school rules are compatible with the free Stars Without Number sci-fi game and give both GM and players a steady framework for plumbing the unspeakable secrets of the eldritch night. Now, after a successful Kickstarter with more than 1,100 backers, a Kickstarter completed a month early, this tome of dark secrets can be yours.

Silent Legions isn't just about traditional Yog-Sothothery. Silent Legions is a creation kit, a toolbox in the Sine Nomine style for creating your own Mythos, with all-new deities, alien entities, foul magics, accursed artifacts, unaussprechlichen kulten, and diabolical dream-worlds to bedevil your players. These tools are system-neutral, so even fans of other Lovecraftian gaming systems can scoop them up to add a splash of fresh horror to their more familiar tentacular abominations.

Not only that, but Silent Legions is built to help the GM create investigative adventures with minimal strain. Within these pages you'll find a modular set of templates and adventure guides that help you snap together an evening's intrepid investigation and fit it neatly into your campaign setting. Like the Mythos creation tools, these guides are system-neutral and can be exported for any occasion when you need something wicked to this way come.

Its in-depth sections on mythos creation, cult construction, monster modelling, world building, and adventure templates work for any Lovecraftian horror game.  While its old-school random tables are aleatorically inspiring, its multi-faceted advice on establishing a weird horror setting are top-notch.
* Since the game uses OSR d20 rules, I suppose it qualifies.  Also, for some reason, H.P. Lovecraft's Arkham from Chaosium is part of this sale, marked down to $11.96 from $14.95.
