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.
So, what is Wretched Folklore? Well, it is many things. On its face, it is a bestiary of creatures inspired by both Native American and European folklore to use in your Wretched Country and Wretched Èpoque campaigns. As games written with the OSR in mind—or, more aptly, written with the OSR game design philosophy as a guide—the Red Room’s offerings can fit into just about any game system with very little tweaking. This supplement, Wretched Folklore, is no different. You will find monsters that are, hopefully, unique and not your standard critter found in a monster manual of the world’s most popular role-playing game.
