Wretched Role-Playing Game Review
The Celluloid Killer – RELEASED
This scenario by Silvia Clemente is a police procedural about a series of movie-inspired gruesome murders. For now it’s only available in digital format, but there will be a print on demand option later (Lulu).
In Celluloid Killer, the third instalment of the Crime City Blues series, players are assigned the roles of Hammettville Police detectives who are investigating a gruesome murder. As they delve deeper into the case, they come to the realisation that a serial killer is on the loose.
The Celluloid Killer is obsessed with movies, and copies the murder scenes of well-known films for his killings. The adventure is firmly rooted in the thriller genre and should be played as a traditional police procedural, with no supernatural elements. However, it is connected to Sexual Holocaust, the first adventure in the Crime City Blues series, which had a horror theme inspired by Hellraiser. That scenario introduced a group of sexual demons known as The Apostles of Pain, who manage to cross over into our world.

The Celluloid Killer – COMING SOON
Wretched Vigilantes – RELEASED
Wretched Vigilantes – RELEASED (Red Room store for now, print version coming soon from Lulu). Wretched Vigilantes is a game setting for the Wretched Role-Playing Game that thrusts players into the gritty and dark world of Hammettville, infamously known as “Crime City.”
Within this setting, players assume the roles of anti-hero characters, retired vigilantes who are unexpectedly called back into action to defend their city. Their adversaries are the Vanguard Squad, a group of once-heroic crime fighters who have become corrupted and transformed into crime lords themselves, terrorizing the very city they once protected. As former vigilantes, the player characters embark on a journey of redemption and self-discovery.
In the Wretched Vigilantes game setting players have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the grim and tumultuous world of the Wretchedverse and Hammettville. It is a world where the lines between heroes and villains blur, and notions of good and evil become murky. While the default assumption is for players to take on the role of the Vigilantes, the game also allows for the intriguing option of playing as the super-villains, former members of the Vanguard Squad. This versatility provides players with a range of perspectives and storytelling possibilities, ensuring a rich and engaging game-play experience. To play Wretched Vigilantes, players will need the Wretched Role-Playing Game core book or another suitable old-school set of rules that align with the game’s mechanics.

Wretched Conspiracies, the newest Wretched game setting, is now available in print on demand from Lulu.com. You can find it here.

New Skin for the Old Sisters and a FREE Wretched Verse (Sins and Virtues editions)
The Sisters of the Sevens Sins (Wretched versions) was released when Midjourney was still starting their journey. Now that it has evolved from its Impressionist Period to a Photorealism phase, we decided to update the illustrations at the same time we updated it to second edition Wretched RPG stats. If you purchased it through The Red Room store or Big Geek Emporium you can now download version 1.2. If you purchased through that other place, you can contact us for a free download. You find it also at Lulu.
We are also releasing the Sins as Virtues as alignment (previously published as a bog post) as a new free issue of Wretched Verses. To provide players and game masters with a dynamic and nuanced approach to character alignment, we present the Sins and Virtues Alignment System, based on the Wretched Transgression mechanics. This system offers a different perspective on character motivations, going beyond the traditional good versus evil, chaos versus order dichotomies. Naturally, the Sins and Virtues can also be combined with a traditional alignment system. This item is free, but if you would like to pay something for it, you can use the option One-time Payment at our Subscription Plan page.
