New Lovecraftian Storytelling RPG Now Available!

The indie game movement has brought us some really amazing games like FATE and Dread and now another game tops the list.

Nominated for 5 ENnies, including Best Rules, Best Writing, Best Setting, Best Game, and Product of the Year, Tremulus was also a Kickstarter Staff pick of the Week for 2012, and one of the top grossing RPG Kickstarters of all time. Tremulus is a storytelling RPG where you and your friends get together and create a haunting story in the vein of HP Lovecraft's works.

No experience is required, and I mean NONE. You don't even have to know anything about HP Lovecraft or Cthulhu. If you know what scares you and your friends, that knowledge and the guidance found within this tome will give you more than enough to get started. And dice? You only need a pair of regular old six-sided dice, like you find in most family board games. If you've never played any roleplaying games in the past, then this is a great game to start with.

Take a gander at the full line-up of FATE product or grab yourself a new set of d6's from Chessex!

I just bought Tremulus from the publisher. Looks intriguing.

Great for One-shots and short campaigns, and while the post references FATE, it is more based around the Apocalypse Engine (Used in Apocalypse World and Dungeon World). The key is while the book has everything you need to run the game, it is advisable to pick up PDFs of the character folios. In the game you pick your characters from a stack of semi-pregens - I say semi-pregens because there are some choices you get to make as a player, but with each being unique you are assured as a player your character is special with unique talents that only have. It also makes death have less of a sting because as soon as you die you can get another player from the stack and come in as soon as possible. What I love most about tremulus though is the "choose-your-own-horror" questionaire that the group fills out and which gives the GM the seeds of the adventure.
Out of the three times I have run tremulus each story has been unique thanks to the characters and the choices the players have made.
Summary: Great for one shots. Get the Character PDFs. Tons of fun.

The blog doesn't claim that the game is based on Fate. It merely references Fate and Dread as other indie role-playing games.
