Books & Bullets

You belong to a cell of paranormal investigators. You have glimpsed unspeakable things that live in the darkness beyond the light of human understanding, and yet you still dare to seek them out.

B&B is an adventure game of Lovecraftian horror & mystery that shoots the line of complexity between Trail of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Dark, and which avoids the Insanity death spiral without taking the sting out of mind-shattering revelations. Formatted in 3 single-sided pages (player, mythos master, resources), the game is based on John Harper's Lasers & Feelings.

This game is FREE to everyone and released under the CC-BY-NC-SA license.
