For Halloween this year, I'm going to give you all a gift. The gift of free gaming materials. For about a year, off and on, in conjunction with the Fraternity of Shadows, I've been working on Gothic Earth Eternal. GEE is a modern horror game based on the old Masque of the Red Death game put out in 1994 by William W. Connors through TSR.
The short, short version is that Masque of the Red Death was a setting in the 1890's where Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and Sherlock Holmes were all real. The new rules and game updates the setting to 2012, using the Pathfinder rules as its core.
We also let fans write in their own versions of various Darklords and villains to be included with the setting. Those write-ups will be coming shortly as well.
Anyhow, I'm giving this all away for free. Here's the link.
To find out more about the Gothic Earth Eternal project, find out more on the Fraternity of Shadows page.
On a final note, I want to say that this is a bit of a dedication to Mik and the Minions of the Monster Master as well, because way back in the day, we played a short Masque of the Red Death game. I have found memories of that one. As I remember it, Mik got to play Nikola Tesla in a romping, horror-filed game of hauntings, cultists, and Creatures Beyond Time and Space.
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
