They Came from Beyond the Grave! is a dramatic, hammy, and horrifying tabletop roleplaying game encompassing the shock, terror, eroticism, and humor of 1970s horror. This game allows you to play with all the magnificent content from the movies of Hammer, Amicus, and Roger Corman, and promises the fun and thrills of the horror movie genre! In They Came from Beyond the Grave!, you play humans faced with the horrors of the supernatural. You’ll find yourself pitted against vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and constructed critters, along with demons, slashers, and THE DEVIL HIMSELF. Adventures range from the one-shot exploration of a haunted house, to the multi-era play across the 19th century and 1970s.

 Women are Werewolves: On Designing Queer Games
Posted: Tue, 23 Nov 2021 16:18:14
Category: Blogs, indie rpgs, kickstarter
Women are Werewolves is a card-based story game where players take on the roles of nonbinary characters who belong to a family that believes only women transform into werewolves. Throughout the game, characters explore their relationships to gendered spaces and family traditions. They also explore their relationships with their queer and non-queer family members. The game asks you to navigate the various gendered traditions your family engages in and deal with the awkward questions, misguided assumptions, and occasional microaggressions that come with it. At its heart, Women are Werewolves is a game about discovering your boundaries and whether you can find, or make, a space for your authentic self within a family that might not understand you.

Atlas Games is the publisher of the extensive 3rd Edition Penumbra series, as well as the critically acclaimed Nyambe: African Adventures and Northern Crown: New World Adventures campaign settings. Planegea 5E is the company's first foray into 5th Edition. "We've been waiting for the right IP," Atlas Games co-owner Michelle Nephew commented. "I knew when I first saw it that Planegea was something special. Who could resist dinos and dragons … together?!" This is Atlas Games' 11th crowdfunding project. They've delivered eight Kickstarter campaigns so far, with two more en route from China and fulfilling by the end of 2021. Planegea author David Somerville, who also created the hit board game Vast: The Crystal Caverns, says he designed the Planegea setting "out of a love for adventure and the desire to explore new horizons of fantasy at my own gaming table." He created much of the setting while on a year-long RV trip around the US with his family. Those landscapes and natural wonders inspired the breadth and scale of Planegea.
