About the adventure

Play this comic-horror troupe style game with one of the original contributors! Wilder than Killer Klowns From Outer Space! (Gasp!) Scarier than Cannibal Apocalypse! (Arghhhhh!) Bigger than The Blob and twice as ugly! (Eeeek!) It’s the RPG double for The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies! (What a mouthful!) It’s KILLER THRILLER! It has all the spine-tingling chills of watching a late-night fright flick — even better, because you’re the star of the scatterbrained massacre! Here’s your chance to abandon smart gaming like it’s The House on Haunted Hill. Leave sound judgment writhing on the ground as you work through a procession of disposable characters, senselessly follow strange noises without so much as a flashlight (“Roll your Unwise”), become inconveniently trapped in some spooky place (“Roll your Unluck”), then fall hook, line, and sickle to yet another wholesale slaughter (“Roll your Undone!”). Meet unbelievably gross critters, discover sicko surprises, experience gratuitous violence and gore, ring up the body count! For those craving grindhouse dementia to the scholcketh degree, KILLER THRILLER is the one to impale your eyeballs onto. So never mind the mutilated corpses and have a killer time! — ‘Cause whatever’s preying you certainly will. Rest In Pieces. “Oh yes, there will be blood.” —Jigsaw, Saw II (Look, we can do quotes like them pretentious goth games!)

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a mic. No tokens are required and Roll20 is used only for dice rolling and flavor pictures.

What I provide

I own the base game. It is also available on DriveThruRPG.

Gameplay details

Expect goofy role-play, B-movie acting, blood and death, lots and lots of death. Players will control multiple characters and only by sacrificing some can they hope to defeat the villain(s). Pre-gens supplied. No experience necessary. Your common RPGs tend to rate characters in positive terms. You look at the sheets and they glaringly do not scream “VICTIMSSSSS!” Well, that isn’t going to fly here any better than ole King Kong did off the Empire State Building. The nature of b-flicks dictates that no character gets too much credit — if any at all. So instead, they have Inabilities: Stats that don’t tell you how well a character can do something any better than Michael Myers can deliver a keynote speech. Learn more, and embrace the cheese!

How will character creation work

Players will be assigned three to four pre-gens, many with existing relationships. These are B-movie stereotype characters with few stats. Don't worry about method acting.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Low
  • Roleplay: High
  • Puzzles: Low
