Dark Places and Demogorgons roleplaying game rulebook coverStrange and even stranger things await in our all-new Dark Places & Demogorgons Bundle. Dark Places & Demogorgons is the 2017 tabletop horror roleplaying game of 1980s monster-of-the-week weirdness a la The Goonies, E.T., Weird Science, and Buffy. Amid sinister events in tiny Jeffersontown, Kentucky, your intrepid teen investigators -- nerds, jocks, geeks, goths, punks, hoods, and the occasional teen wolf -- face supernatural perils, meddlesome adults, clueless cops, and the horrifying ordeals of adolescence.

Demogorgons uses the Survive This! rules system, a fast-playing fusion of Old School Revival spirit with modern rules inspired by D&D Fifth Edition. This bargain-priced offer gives you most of the DP&D game line along with its companion Survive RPG of street-level superheroes, Vigilante City.

For just US$9.95 you get all seven titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $47) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete 200-page Dark Places & Demogorgons core rulebook (plus the Player Options & GM Guide and GM Screen Inserts); the Survive This version of the Vigilante City Core Rules (and the Print and Play Standees miniatures), the Vigilante City Villain Guide, and the Demogorgons supplement Martial Arts Mayhem.

(Runehammer Games has adapted Vigilante City for its Index Card RPG system, and this past March we presented that version in our Index Card RPG Bundle. This offer presents the original Survive This version.)
