  • Rats in the Walls RPG - Illustrated


    PoC

    I highlighted Rats in the Walls back in March, however since then it's received more love and attention with the inclusion of new illustrations by Tithi Luadthong, and a few rules revisions (along with some good reviews).

     

    Rats in the Walls: A Roleplaying Game of Cosmic Horror by @AlexandreJ is a relatvely minimalist d6-based RPG rules set available in PDF from DriveThruRPG (with a print edition promised via Lulu). You can pick up the digital edition for about $6 USD.

     

    The art-free version is still available under "pay what you want".

    Rats in the Walls

     

    Rats in the Walls is a roleplaying game of cosmic horror, inspired by the writings of H.P Lovecraft (but it doesn't use HPL's Mythos).

     

    • The game system is inspired by classics like Advanced Fighting FantasyTraveller and more recent titles like Maze Rats or Into the Odd. It uses 2D6 and only the players roll the dice so the GM can focus on the players' choices.
    • The system is aimed at long-term play but works very well with one-shots as well.
    • The default setting are the roaring '20s but an appendix allows you to create medieval characters.
    • Grab a character sheet, 2D6, pick a profession and a reputation and go fight the Old Ones or die screaming.

     

    This is the revised, fully illustrated edition.

      In Reign of Terror the ghoul (Guillaume) makes references to his forays into the Dreamlands, so I think there may be a physical way there via the catacombs. You could certainly run a crossover of those two settings. Dreamhounds of Paris for Trail of Cthulhu might be a little handy for that, particularly if you want to use the 1920s somehow as well.   The Dreamlands is vaguely medieval/renaissance, but also has Victorian, ancient, and even Edwardian aspects.   I have run a Dreamlands-intensive game, with a Cat of Ulthar as a PC.

      How have other keepers used the Dreamlands in their campaigns? I’ve been reading about the setting quite a bit recently since I’m a fairly new keeper. I just introduced a couple of investigators to the Dreamlands via a recently deceased NPC. Currently I am running the Auction and from there it’s on to HotOE. I know there are a couple of scenarios in HotOE involving the Dreamlands. I’m interested to know if some of the optional scenarios could be introduced using the Dreamlands as well.    From what I could tell so far the Dreamlands seem to be a medieval type world. Has anyone ever ran it as something else? Could Reign of Terror be set there possibly? How about investigators access? Is it a simple dreaming skill roll to gain access to the world of dreams or is it more complicated?    Its stated several times to make the Dreamlands your own, I’m just looking for a frame of reference.

      This project is still being slowly worked on... (I have contractual writing that takes precedence). May be finished next year. The Silver Twilight is in it now...
