If you haven’t caught up or seen Mark’s review of issue #1 of Abyssal Albion from the folk at Deadbolt Comics, then here’s the skinny. The end times are upon us! The Elder Gods have risen and civilisation as we know it has fallen. Britain is awash with dangers of hitherto unimagined horror. This is no zombie apocalypse in the vein of Walking Dead or 28 Days later but if you liked those, you’ll find certain tonal similarities; just with Mythos inspired monsters…
I mentioned previously that this would seem like ideal setting inspiration for an RPG, and given that great minds obviously think alike, a pre-order campaign for a quick start adventure is now on offer over at Itch.io (CLICK HERE), promising elements of traditional post-apocalyptic survival, eldritch horror, fantastical landscapes in the Dreamlands, all bound up in great story-driven narrative.
Whilst it would seem that the obvious route would be to lean into the already well-established Call of Cthulhu roleplaying system and create a sort of setting source book, the team are instead looking at something new. The intent? To create “a TTRPG that was mechanically light, require minimal set-up, and be player driven.”
As well as getting in on the ground floor on this new TTRPG project and helping to bring it to life, you’ll also get yourself a digital copy of #1 of Abyssal Albion in advance of the quick start adventure. All of this for less than three of your British Pounds!
Well, what are you waiting for?
