October Project Announcement

I have two fun horror themed projects I'll be dropping on OBS next month. Let me know what you think of them in the comments.

Slashers and Victims Light
I had originally planned on doing a fully fleshed out White Box slasher game called Camp White Box. I think the name is great, but as several friends have pointed out, that's a lot of work for a game that will probably be used for one shots. I didn't let it fully die though (because nothing ever really dies). It will be in a format like the main Swords & Wizardry Light rules, only two pages when printed out. You'll need the core rules to play. There will only be one class, though characters can choose from perks and drawbacks to customize them. There will also be new setting specific equipment, rules about fear saves, and a selection of slashers, bystanders, and a few animals that haven't been covered in Light or Tome of Horrors Light. I've been working for the past few weeks on this and the first draft is done. I've let a couple of folks look at it and they liked it. It will drop on Friday the 13th.
Public Domain Monster Matinee 
(working title)
Honestly this one just came to me tonight while I was brainstorming for another Light City post. +Jonathan Linneman and I have done some fun stuff with public domain superheros, why not use other fun stuff in the public domain. My thoughts for this one is that I'll give a brief (probably paragraph description of the movie) and then stat out some npc's and monsters from them. Since I love Swords & Wizardry Light, that's what I'm going to use for this one too. That means the contents can be used for traditional Swords & Wizardry Light, Light City, and Slashers and Victims Light. Here are the movies I'm probably going to draw from:  White Zombie, The Devil Bat, Night of the Living Dead, Hunchback of Notre Dame (Universal), Indestructible Man, The Last Man on Earth, The Phantom of the Opera (Universal), Little Shop of Horrors (Corman), Teenagers from Outer Space, and Manos: Hands of Fate. I'm not sure of the release date, but it will be on or before Halloween.


  1. Cool! Looking forward to all of this!

  2. If you're going full-on OSR, then Camp White Box is a good title. I didn't really understand the public domain RPG.
