Variation: Orientation


Beyond the Void

Note: This product is a part of the Gothic Campaign Compendium along with several others.

Beyond the Void provides a terrifying addendum to the darkest edges of reality and their sanity-rending intersections with the mortal world. This rules supplement deals with the contact and summoning of alien entities whose dominions lie in realms of blackness beyond the stars. Sometimes the province of the dangerously curious, more often the patrons of the deliriously insane, these inhuman powers are utterly other, indifferent to human joy or misery, though always hungry and eager to devour any creature unwise enough to attract their attention.

Cultic Cryptomancia

Note: This product is a part of the Gothic Campaign Compendium along with several others.

Cults are a classic element in fantasy from the historical to the horrific, and the Cultic Cryptomancia explores the uses of cults of every kind in your campaign, from secret sects that live in the shadows and prey upon the weak-willed or disillusioned dregs of society to the near-forgotten relic rituals echoing down from ancient times and still practiced by scattered adherents, covens, and rural traditions handed down from the oldest folkways far from the watchful eyes of the younger gods and civilized ideals of modern society. This product is replete with rules elements to bring any cult to life, including archetypes for apostate inquisitors and sublime bards, and the  Eldritch mystery for oracles containing 14 new revelations.

Under Frozen Stars

On an epic journey across the far frozen wastes, your characters seek their destiny and that of the future empress. Yet at the top of the world, having overcome the ravening storms and dark forces arrayed against them, you discover a marvel of legend, a ruined city both ancient and alien. Surely you cannot simply pass it by without exploring it and seeing what mysteries have lain untouched for time out of mind. Then again, if the rumors told in the caravan are true, perhaps others have come not so long ago, leaving behind a mysterious treasure that may be of great aid in claiming your imperial destiny in the eastern realms.
