Wretched Darkness, the OSR game of mature horror, is now available in softcover at Lulu.com.
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!

In Wretched Depravity, our second Halloween scenario was just released at DrivethruRPG and Big Geek Emporium.
Inspired heavily by the movie The Dead House, in this Wretchploitation scenario, by Joe Coombs , the players may take the role of a gang of psychotic house invaders, the family inhabiting the house or even the authorities investigating the case. Besides the conflict between the gang and the family members, there will be many other events, mundane and supernatural. So, whether you’re looking for a fun one-shot night of horror or something that could be much more expansive, then (hopefully) this will be an explosive fuel for your inspiration.

There’s a 50% discount on Wretchploitation also available at the Big Geek Emporium during the weekend. If you still haven’t the old-school RPG of exploitation film, this is probably a good time to purchase it.
Orpheum Lofts (Wretched version) is now available on Drivethru.
Also, there will be a special 50% discount on the purchase of Wretchploitation, the OSR game of exploitation film; just click on this link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?discount=949775d2a0
Orpheum Lofts is a thriller/ horror role-playing scenario inspired by Dario Argento’s Three Mothers Trilogy [Suspiria (1977), Inferno (1980) and Mother of Tears (2007)], Polanski’s The Tenant (1976) and Rosemary’s Baby (1968), ’80s and ’90s sitcoms, and romantic comedies. Yes, it’s a strange mix, but it will get weirder… As usual in Red Room adventures, there is no predetermined plot, only suggested ones, and no described scenes; instead, there are many story seeds. Though it was planned for a series of connected stories set in the mid-80s, Orpheum Lofts can easily be turned into a one-shot. The timeline isn’t set in stone either.
This book contains the scenario previously published by Postmortem Studios as part of the Postmortem Giallo series and also part of Her Heart was a Locked Room, and Nobody had theKey: A Giallo Series Companion, adapted to old-school mechanics. If you have purchased those two books do you need this one as well? No, not really.
This horror scenario takes place in a Portuguese convent with a dark history of demonic possession, black magic, and Devil worships that, in the mid-1970s, is occupied by a recently founded unusual religious congregation made up of disgraced women who wish to atone for their past, the Reprobate Sisters of the Seven Sins. Players can take the role of nuns, Vatican authorities sent to investigate reports of demoniacal manifestations, reporters interested in exploring the story behind this atypical catholic sisterhood or even criminals working on a devious plan to restore a sinister painting to the convent where it originally belonged.
In this scenario, you will find a summary description of the fictional Convent of Saint Mary Magdalene, located in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, followed by some information about the country during the late 1970s and various detailed characters. This assumes you will run it in Wretchploitation or other modern horror games. But if you’d rather play it as a Wretched Époque scenario, there are notes for adapting each player and non-player character to the Belle Époque and more plot hooks and details about Lisbon in the late 19th century.
Note: The first version of this scenario was published last year by Postmortem Studios. This one has different rules (OSR mechanics for the Wretched system), more plot hooks, for the Belle Époque, and some player handouts.
