Squamous out now



I finally went and did it. Using the In Darkest Warrens system I've created a Lovecraftian rules lite d6 game called Squamous: cosmic horror roleplaying. Because it's the IDW system you get an entire ruleset and mythos bestiary on a single sheet of paper. Not only that, I've included a mystery (the Squamous way of saying scenario) too: The Dreaming House, where something has gone magically awry on a farm.

Oh, it's pay what you want, too!

  1. Great little game! Thanks for putting up on DriveThru as Pay What You Want. Needs more Investigator occupations... Librarian...lawyer...aviator...explorer...criminal...archaeologist...etc.

    1. Thanks Brian. Absolutely - easy enough to come up with your own too :)

  2. Also curious - what's your 'ultimate' Lovecraftian rpg (either one that exists or one that has yet to be made). You've released 'Beyond Fear' and now 'Squamous' ... do they tick all the Lovecraftian rpg boxes for you, or is the Trollish Delver's ultimate Cosmic Horror tabletop rpg still waiting to be summoned up from the great void on some dark wooded hill?

    1. Hah. I don't quite know yet. It's a game that identically reproduces the creeping terror of the stories.

  3. Adding the sanity mechanic into IDW proper, along with some early fire arms, would be a fun way to get that "grim and perilous" feel. Thanks for another great little product.
