If you purchased Wretched Bastards at DrivethruRPG or Big Geek Emporium, you can now download The Seven Bastards scenario for free. If you haven’t purchased it yet, well it’s a good reason to do it now as it includes a free 76-page scenario.
Years ago a group of lewd and rowdy adventurers, collectively known as The Seven Bastards, was expelled from the village of Fork for their belligerent and salacious ways. But when consecutive bands of orcs start coming down from the mountains south of the village, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, the locals find no support in their lord, Windom, the Earl of Andril, too distracted with the mysterious disappearance of his young daughter to care about any other trouble. The villagers turn to the only ones who can help them in a time of need, the Bastards.
The Seven Bastards includes:
– A detailed location – the village of Fork – complete with NPCs and enough plot hooks for several sandbox-style adventures
– Seven pregenerated characters
– More information about the Wretched Bastards setting, the world of Antillia, including antagonist factions and ancient history
– Carousing activities for Bastard characters
– Using cards as a random event/ encounter generator
Sexual Holocaust, the horror scenario that DrivethruRPG would only allow if censored, is now available for FREE at Big Geek Emporium, with a new cover, new layout and naughtier AI-generated art.
So what is Sexual Holocaust? For starters not as “problematic” as I made it sound… It’s mature horror, it’s NFSW, but if you are alright with exploitation horror, you’ll survive it.
This 78-page scenario takes place in a fictional town, Hammettville, known among its inhabitants as Crime City, and it should be set from the early 1970s to mid-1980s, as those decades are more in line with the kind of horror movie being emulated. As with every other Red Room scenario, this is a sandbox-style adventure with enough information and plot seeds to last from a one-shot to a small campaign.
So why are we giving it away? Let’s face it, to sell an independent, niche, mature horror scenario that we can’t even sell at the largest online RPG store is difficult… So, we better turn it into a marketing tool. If you like it, please consider looking at other Red Room products. We promise there are fewer nipples in all the others!
Wretched is an old-school role-playing game designed to play anti-hero characters in a cinematic setting. In Wretched Apocalypse, the genre is post-apocalyptic science fiction. This book can either be used as a standalone game or as a tool-set sourcebook for any Wretchedverse game, especially Wretched New Flesh, Wretchploitation and Wretched Space.
You can just play it as a conventional post-apocalyptic sandbox or apply it to a space opera game universe. In the first case, the background could be Earth in the future; in the second case, there are plenty of options within colonised space. The setting included in this book is supposed to take place in post- apocalyptic Earth, but it can easily be adapted.
War runs rife calling forth starvation, hunger, cannibalism, disease, scavenging and mutations. There are endless deserts populated with the remnants of humanity. Shanty towns are run by tyrannical regimes. Once, this world may have been overflowing with resources, but now it is a polluted hellhole. Nature is a resilient bitch, though, and somehow she finds a way to break through the decay, rot, and bleak landscapes of a world that would appear to be uninhabited. Could it be pockets of survivors banded together as they fight common enemies? While some sell out their friends and families for a few extra scraps, others join against great enemies. What awaits you and your group remains to be seen… Burst out of your comfort zone and discover something out of this world.
