Have you ever wondered what happens to your favorite characters when the die in the game world? Have you ever lamented losing a cool hero you've just built? Well, travel to the Land of Lost Heroes . . . where the dead go to await judgement!
This is limbo. Neither heaven nor hell. Neither the land of the living nor the land of those who have passed on. This is the land of the dead.
This is the Land of Lost Heroes!
Deepest Dungeon is the newest release from Micro RPG! It is a gothic horror grimdark fantasy roleplaying game for one player where YOU take on the role of one of the dead--a hero who finally gave up the ghost in some dungeon or battle in the mortal world.
This book is a standalone adventure in the Micro RPG game system. You can play this adventure independently on its own using only this book. This book may also be combined with any other Micro RPG product from any genre--building upon characters you have previously played . . . but have died. Whichever path you choose for your gameplay, the rules and maps included here will guide you in your journey in this purgatory land.
Featuring all new undead classes, 10+ game maps, countless game tables, and more, the Deepest Dungeon is sure to draw you into the darkness . . . for hours.
The book is available now in PDF for $9.99 and Print for $14.99! But that's not all! Head over to Amazon to find the official Deepest Dungeon Player Journal for $5.99 to help track your campaign as you play (Journal available only in print).
HAPPY HALLOWEEN and HAPPY AFTERLIFE!
Happy Weekend, Gamers!
It is time for the Micro RPG update! It's a BIG month here as there are many announcements to make. It is the Halloween season, first and foremost, and you all know it is my favorite time of year! Time for things to get spooky. I have a frightening new horror game for you! But first . . .
MICRO RPG now has a PATREON! That's right, come and be a member of the Micro RPG team! Support a small company! Get discounts on all new games! Get some merch! It is all here!
SYSTEM NAME CHANGE! NEXT, I am officially changing the name of the Micro Chapbook RPG system to be simply MICRO RPG from now on. This shortens the name down to be more manageable and fit more with the image and theme of the line of game books moving forward! I have a few old (very old) game books labeled under a long forgotten Micro RPG system (the advent of my game company when it was only a hobby for me), but those are not part of the new Micro RPG. This includes The Dark West and Barbarians of the Gothic Wastes. These were my very first two games I ever made, and are well loved, but are not part of the new system.
MICRO HORRO RPG Finally, get ready for the newest book release from the Micro RPG line. Micro HORROR RPG.
Welcome to the town of Candle Grove. Ghosts, vampires, zombies, the undead, ghouls, serial killers, werewolves, and so much more lurk just beneath the surface, hidden from the norms of everyday life.
Micro Horror RPG is an ultra-simple, modern dark fantasy, horror roleplaying game that is designed specifically for one solo player.
Take on the role of a “hunter,” a normal everyday person who gets dragged into the unknown realms of interdimensional horror! Discover the evils that lurk in the shadows, escape them, survive them, or . . . slay them!
This book will be a springboard into a brand new multi-verse with many horror offerings that connect the different worlds of Micro RPG, old and new. Travel between time and dimensions via the Black Matter Stones. Take your modern day hero into the fantasy realms or bring your elf into the modern day. It is up to you!
You can get the new Micro Horror RPG for a discounted price of $7.50 now on DriveThruRPG!
Happy Horror Gaming, friends!
Happy Thursday! We're coming up on the final weekend of Septemeber. Then, after that, we are full on into Spooky Season with multipule spooky game releases. Get ready for ghosts and mystery this season as we take a spookier and quieter approach to Micro Chapbook RPG.
This week, however, I am thrilled to bring you Madame Mimbe's Star Codex--a perfect little supplement to expand Micro Sci-Fi RPG.
In Madame Mimble’s Star Codex, you’ll find lists of alien races to play as (a new addition rather than only playing earthbound humans), new sci-fi classes, a slew of weapons, tons of armors, body augments for you character, and more for use with your Micro Sci-Fi RPG games.
These simple options can add a lot of flavor and different options and inspirations to your game.
This book is intended to be used with the Micro Sci-Fi RPG Basic Edition Rulebook, but works perfectly with any of the older rule sets of 0.0 edition and 1.0 edition.
Get it now for only $1.99!
Time for another Micro RPG update! We are working our way quickly into the Halloween season. Halloween candy and Pumpkin flavored foods are everywhere on store shelves. Decorations and costumes are just starting to appear in big box stores. Best yet, the weather is finally cooling down here where we are and that crisp smell of Autumn is starting to appear!
Well, I hope to give you plenty of Halloween Cheer this year with spooky games.
Let's start off with Frankenstein & His Great Love!
Frankenstein and His Great Love is a Gothic horror themed adventure for Micro Chapbook RPG--inspired by Gothic low-budget horror flicks of the fifties and sixties. Set in the grim northern lands of Bella Frostmist, your character finds themselves commissioned to rescue a Lord's kidnapped son from Dr. Frankenstain's castle . . . where mystery and terror lies within.
This new adventure gives quickstart rules for creation Victorian Gothic characters who can step beyond the veil of our world and into the fantasy realm. You can, of course, go the traditional route with fantasy characters as well.
Happy Thursday Gamers!
The DriveThru RPG MYTHOS SALE is on now! That means you can get up to 25% off on a bunch of my horror themed adventures and game books just in time for the spooookiest season of the year! The sale is only until the 30th, so make sure to get those discounts before Cthulhu drags them back to the deep.
But that's not all!
I have a brand new edition of a much loved Lovecraftian game!
Besides my Micro Chapbook RPG game line, possibly my most popular best selling game book is Cthulhu Nights. It is a very simple 1920s Lovecraftian horror game for one Loremaster (Game Master) and 1-5 Investigators! When I originally published the game, it was extremely bare bones. The book was tiny and had little to no art.
Well, I'm thrilled to announce the new Premium Edition of Cthulhu Nights RPG! The new edition is your typical folio sized game book. Additionally, the book is in full color and the rules have been updated and expanded slightly, all while staying true to the simplicity of the original. At a mere 36 pages, you can learn the game in a half-hour or less. Better yet, you can teach it to your game group and make Investigator characters in a matter of minutes! It is a perfect game for the quarantine world and great for video chat play for those who still don't have the opportunity to meet up with friends in person!
Buy it now for $6.99 by clicking the cover art below.
If you like the game, please leave a review or feedback on the game page. If people decide they like the system, there may be future game books! Maybe adventure books to accompany the main game detailing places like Miskatonic U or Arkham Asylum. Maybe you'll see a premium edition of Undead Nights, the zombie version of the game that has also been a popular title.
And don't worry, there are spooky books in store for the Micro Chapbook system. I've already begun work on a ghostly J-Horror inspired game book that you'll see in September!
Happy Friday Gamers!
It has been a long week, but I wanted to start out by saying thank you to everyone who filled out the customer survey about the upcoming Halloween games. There was a lot more response for this survey than last year's, which means the small community is growing! This year, it seems the themes of Victorian Gaslight Horror and Lovecraftian Horror are the most popular--which was a big surprise to me. So, I'll start working on new game products for the season starting next week. Details on specifics to come.
Today, however, I'm thrilled to finally announce that the second book in the ADVANCED RULES series for Micro Chapbook RPG is here! The Advanced Dungeon Guide! Get it now for $14,99 digital, $29,99 in paperback, and $39.99 in hardcover! The book is also available in Paperback and Hardcover NOW on Amazon! Check out the Facebook page or Youtube channel next week for an official flipthrough of the book and all of its contents.
Check out the official book description below for more details:
Are you wanting to take your Micro Chapbook RPG dungeons to the next level? With new more detailed dungeon generation options, new monster generation options, new tactical choices in battle, and a slew of randomized search tables, the Micro Chapbook RPG Advanced Dungeon Guide is sure to beef up your dungeon crawling game.
This Advanced Dungeon Rulebook contains all the rules for building complex and deep dungeon crawling experiences for those who want a solo roleplaying experience with a little more rules crunch to it--as well as most of the gameplay basics.
IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU OWN THE MICRO CHAPBOOK RPG BASIC EDITION RULEBOOK TO GET THE BEST USE OF THIS THIS ADVANCED EXPANSION.
Happy Thursday, Friends!
This week has felt super long, but it is Thursday and the weekend can just be seen on the horizon. Not to mention, with it being August, we can see the holidays in just in the distance! And the first holiday we know is charging down the rails at full speed is HALLOWEEN! And that means a collection of scary and spooky game books will be hitting the Micro RPG online store page soon!
There are a lot of possibilities for this year's Halloween lineup, but nothing is set in stone yet. That is where you come in! That's right, you can give your input right now to help determine which horror themed games are coming in September and October! Will it be Cthulhu Mythos? Victorian gaslights and ghosts? Intergalactic horrors? It is up to you, the gamers!
To give your input, visit this link.
While there is no new game release this week, there are some cool games coming down the line for August and early September. Game releases you can expect to see soon include:
The Advanced Dungeon Guide! Many of you have been really enjoying the Advanced Character Guide for Micro Chapbook RPG and I know you're all excited for the next Advanced book! Well, you're in luck. Before the end of this month, you'll be able to finally get your hands on the Micro Chapbook RPG Advanced Dungeon Guide. This book includes a ton of new content including a plethora of cascading search charts to help you find any number of cool things in a dungeon. It has a new optional method for generating dungeon rooms. It has new rules to give you more control and choices in combat. And MORE!
Cthulhu Nights RPG Premium Edition! While Micro Chapbook RPG is easily the bread and butter of all my game designs and game lines, the most popular non-mcrpg game I've ever put out is Cthulhu Nights. Cthulhu Nights is an ultra-simple traditional RPG with a game master and players exploring the dark 1920s world of Lovecraftian horror. The original book was published before I was running Micro RPG as a full time job. It is, therefore, very bare bones. The premium edition will include all the same rules but in a nicer format with new art and more detailed explinations of the content. In the meantime while you wait, you can get the original book for 50% off.
Deepest Dungeon! Finally, if you've been following along on Facebook or Instragram, you'll have seen the previews of a new Mega Dungeon adventure book called Deepest Dungeon and set in the Land of Lost Heroes. Ever wondered what happens when a character dies? They go to the Land of Lost Heroes. This Mega Dungeon takes a new approach to dungeon crawling for the system. Each new level of the dungeon you will roll to randomly determine a premade dungeon layout for the level from a series of maps! Thw dungeon also uses a D66 roll for both room types and mosnters. That means 56 possibilities for each! Look for this one coming in the next couple months!
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
It has been a heck of a week and I know many of us are looking forward to the weekend. This week, I am bringing you a new print and play board game! It has been quite some time since I've done a print and play game. I mostly focus adventure books lately, as it is what most of you are interested. However, sometimes it is just nice to put out a print and play game.
The Gentlemen of Twinkle Sands
(Print and Play!)The Gentlemen of Twinkle Sands is a science-fantasy roleplaying game system set in a wonderous GAY world of swashbucklers, dandies, and pirates.
Take on the role of a gay male adventurer, delving into dungeons, killing monsters, gathering gold, and (most importantly) romancing potential partners to help strengthen your party!
The world of Twinkle Sands is inspired by a combination of 18th century swashbuckling pirates and cavaliers and 19th century Victorian dandies--with just a splash of medieval fantasy. It is a realm of science-fantasy, where the technologies such as steam engines, air ships, and gear works exist alongside huge castles, sailing ships, and hidden romantic magics.
As a Micro RPG subscriber, get the print-and-play edition of this board game now for the discounted price of $9.99 (this weekend ONLY!) That is 3 dollars off the regular price!
There is also an official roleplaying game being developed for this same world. And, as always, it will be designed with solo play-ability in mind--but will work well as a traditional group play tabletop game.
Micro RPG is a one man indie game publisher helmed by a queer creator. I strive to provide fun, simple, and soloable roleplaying games books for gamers of every background and walk of life with a focus on LGBTQ+ friendly games.
Micro Chapbook RPG is a simple solo role playing system that spans many genres. The BEST place to start playing Micro Chapbook RPG is with the affordable and simple 1.75 Edition Basic Core Rulebook set in a Grimdark Fantasy World!
