Red Room Flash Sale: Wretched Giallo Trilogy 50% Off

Drivethru’s Halloween Sale is going on, but here at the Red Room, we would like to offer you an even better deal for the Wretched Giallo Trilogy: The Sisters of the Seven Sins, The Memorial and Orpheum Lofts. Just for today, the three scenarios can be purchased at a 50% discount:

Orpheum Lofts:

The Memorial:

The Sisters of the Seven Sins:

The Sisters of the Sevens Sins:
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.

The Memorial
The Memorial is a contemporary horror scenario inspired by Lars Von Trier’s cult TV series Riget (1994), Milos Forman’s One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) and The Killer Nun (1979), an Italian “video nasty” classic starring Anita Eckberg and Alida Valli. There’s undoubtedly some Green Wing, ER, House M.D. and Scrubs in it, hopefully not that much, as it is meant to be horror, after all. 

The Memorial was previously published by Postmortem Studios, part of the Postmortem Giallo series. The new Wretched Memorial is meant to be run using Wretchploitation, an old-school game which emulates the exploitation movie genre and it also includes a few plot hooks meant for Wretched Époque. Nevertheless, you will find it easily adapted it to most contemporary horror role-playing games.

The scenario takes place in a rundown old hospital,The Ernest Spencer Memorial, especially in its psychiatric ward. This surreal institution is populated by bizarre people with a troubled past and where strange things occur frequently. Part of those occurrences is of supernatural origin, but some of them are illegal experiments and common medical malpractice

Orpheum Lofts

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.

All Bets Are Off – Released

All Bets Are Off is a mini-setting for Wretched New Flesh -Postcards from Avalidad. It adds the city of Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, to the Avalidad game world. Lisbon of the near future is a new entry in the infamous list of gambling and vice cities of the world, such as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Macao, Monaco and Singapore.

There are several tie-ins to the original storyline through factions in the core book and plot hooks, which demand the characters to travel to the Iberian city. There’s also enough information to make Lisbon an alternative location for an Avalidad ongoing plot.

In The Mouth of Hell: Coming Soon!

Coming soon from the Red Room: In the Mouth of Hell, a Wretched Époque scenario (and by soon, I mean next week, tomorrow we’ll release All Bets are Off)

In The Mouth of Hell

On the night of December 8th 1901, British occultist Ambrose Fanshaw was murdered by a Portuguese friend, poet and student of occult lore, Artur Corvelo, while staying in Portugal. Fanshaw was thrown off Boca do Inferno (Mouth of Hell), a steep cliff near Cascais, by his associate Corvelo.

Teodoro Albergaria, the lighthouse keeper of the nearby Santa Marta phare, witnessed the murder and testified in court. Even though Fanshaw’s body wasn’t found, Corvelo was trialled, convicted of murder and jailed. However, the poet mysteriously vanished from prison two months after being sentenced. The police are flabbergasted by the scholar’s vanishing act.

Wretched New Flesh 50% Off (Drivethru and BGE)

Tomorrow we’ll release All Bets are Off, an alternate setting for Wretched New Flesh – Postcards from Avalidad. If you haven’t yet purchased the core book, now is a perfect time. Until next Sunday we are offering 50% off the digital book at DrivethruRPG and Big Geek Emporium, and also a discount on the print-on-demand softcover (Drivehtru). Let’s get Wretched!



So, what is Wretched New Flesh?

Wretched New Flesh is an OSR adaptation of Postcards from Avalidad, a Postmortem Studios setting. This is a near-future sci-fi/ surreal horror game inspired by the works of William S. Burroughs, David Cronenberg, William Gibson, and Clive Barker. Almost 400 pages crammed full of information about the bizarre world of Avalidad, with mechanics compatible with the previous Wretched games.

The game setting is centred on Avalidad, a futuristic city in Morocco where corporations have been conducting research in genetics, cybernetics, augmented and virtual reality, and biotechnology. By default, characters are expected to be ZoneSec operatives or executives for Takeda Technologies, one of the most powerful corporations in Avalidad, but other roles such as Avalidad’s celebrities, fiscal royalty and seedy underbelly are also possible.

This book includes the contents of Postmortem Studios’ Postcards from Avalidad, new mechanics, the scenario As Above, so Below and additional information about the city of Avalidad, corporations, technology, ZoneSec and more.

Red Room Flash Sale: Wretched Country 50% Off

There’s a Wretched Country scenario in the works (the first one to be released), so let’s prepare for that by having a sale for the core book. Until tomorrow the pdf will be 50% off, and the softcover standard colour book will also be at a discount.



And what’s Wretched Country all about?

Wretched Country does for the western genre what Wretched Bastards did for fantasy: it’s an old-school game meant for playing anti-hero characters. The spaghetti western, already referenced as a source of inspiration for the OSR dark-fantasy Wretched Bastards, now takes centre stage. In this book, you will find:

• Wretched rules adapted for playing a western game.

• The Devil’s Country, a western-themed horror scenario about an international film crew travelling to Spain to shoot a movie believed to be cursed.

• Hellstone, a setting that can be used to run spaghetti, classic or weird west adventures.
