Knights of Lazarus


Knights of Lazarus presents a puzzle, unsolvable the first time through. The crew must discover the best tactics to combat specialized enemies, roleplay through encounters, and choose whether to retreat or push their luck through the dungeon, The Ship Canterbury.

Will your crew plan a heist? Or take the oath to join the Knights themselves? Whatever the choice the crew will discover the secrets of the order and the dangers of testing their boundaries.

Knights of Lazarus was designed to be easily woven into any campaign with 20 rumors and a dungeon built around regrouping and strategic planning for a successful heist. The Knights of Lazarus is written as a recurring faction for ongoing interactions after the dungeon crawling. Simple rule changes allow for variability for one-shot play and a stand-alone campaign setting.

Made for use with the Mothership RPG system and easily adapted to any OSR system or sci-fi setting.

Knights of Lazarus is 60 full-color pages, including:

  • 5 Dungeon Maps, with 50+ unique rooms.
  • Distilled Dungeon Ruleset that fits on the inside cover with enough space for an Enemy Stat Reference Table. 3 Levels of Difficulty to best fit your group's play style.
  • Easy-to-use Automated Enemies. Players must outwit, outpace, and discover their weaknesses in order to complete a heist.
  • 10 Specialized Enemies + 3 Forbidding Traps. Adversaries present a unique challenge, each threatening the crew's resources. Managing ammunition and survival becomes increasingly difficult.
  • 5 Recurring NPCs. Each with dedicated spreads and full-page portraits. Knights of Lazarus NPCs are rich in detail, with backstories, motivations, and the ability to reveal rumors, offer amnesty, aid or even betray players.
  • Variable play rules. Play a number of one-shots, a stand-alone campaign, or effortlessly integrate into larger campaigns with various rumors and interactions with the order.
  • 20+ Rumors, 4 declassified secrets. A variety of story hooks and clues for players to engage with. Unveil xenotech artifacts and gradually reveal the dark truth of the order.
  • 4+ Pages of random tables including a random knight generator. Create variety from spike-studded armor and morningstar-wielding death knights to tank-legged jousters. Artifact tables produce flavorful books, coins, and relics that fetch loads of credits from the right buyer.
  • Joining the Knights of Lazarus ruleset. Complete with post-mission psych evaluations, 12+ missions, rank and wages, and warden notes for planning on eventual escape from the order.
  • 4 Xenotech artifacts extrapolated from today's brain stimulation technology. These powerful artifacts can relieve stress and enhance safety against failing saves, but they are easily misused without taking the time to discover how they work on humans.

Digital Assets! We care deeply about making our modules as easy to run as possible. Because of that we offer digital "artifacts" to hand players and full notebook PDFs that are easy to print at home. These 12-16pg PDFs give the warden (or players) a connected space to plan how to use or alter the NPCs or Maps or record the crew's experience with them.

Print Settings for easy-print notebooks:

  • Print on Both Sides (Flip on Short Edge)
  • After printing you should be able to take the stack and fold in half, place a couple staples in the middle and start using.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
