In this GM-Less solo and cooperative role-playing game, you create the story together with other players. A story about ordinary people who have been drawn into a whirlwind of horrific and strange events. Suddenly you must face forces you cannot defeat with your bare hands, nor control, nor even understand. Fight or escape? It’s up to you, how you will ensure your survival.

The buy in:

1 - Quick setup. After you learn the rules, there is no other preparation necessary. You can create characters within few minutes before you start to play.

2 - Organic storytelling - The game uses a deck of blackjack cards that manages your story progression with an original mechanic. 

3 - Shared GM or Solo gameplay - The game contains all the tools to help players create their own scenes easily and fast during the gameplay. 

3 - Promts and generators - The game provides lot of prompts and generators to create a thematic story, locations, monsters, npcs and nightmares just by playing it. No preparation necessary. 

4 - It can be system independent - While the game is using its own system, you can easily take the Exploration mechanic and generators to run it within you own favorite system. 

5 - Resource management - The game is using a resource management system so it is also great entry for board game players. 

The main inspiration for the game was Silent Hill franchise and other body and weird horror fiction. With this system and its generators you can easily adapt it to a thrilling Cthulhu adventure or Resident evil style game.

6 - Strong visuals - The game visual presentation had the same priority as the gaming content to bring an immersive gameplay and strong storytelling.

The RPG rules and design was inspired by works of of my favorite authors:

Zach Best / Ben Milton / Nate Treme / Alex T. / Zack Smith / Pelle Nilson / Patrick Stuart / Diogo Nogueira / Shawn Tomkin / Chris Mcdowall / Marco Arnaudo / Andrea Sfiligoi / Matt Davids / Michael Elliott / Yochai Gal / Sean McCoy / Isaac Williams / David Black / Andrew Kolb / Hankerin Ferinale / James Edward Ragii IV / Gabor Lux

Any expenses I make from the optional payment will be used to further expand the game. But of course the greatest gift you can give me is your honest and constructive feedback.

I hope you will enjoy the game as much as i do.

Love the game, but the PDF seems kind of low quality and looks blurry when printed. Is there a higher res version available that could be included as an option? Thanks.

Loving Entity and was thinking of picking this one up as well until I noticed you mention an updated version of this game. Any news on this and how someone can stay updated on your future work?

Thank you Lee for your kind words! Campfire story 2.0 was cancaled because i am no longer sure that the entity structure would fit Campfire, so to be said i am pretty happy with Stories as they are. Regarding my updates, i am close to publish a new game called Emberdark and with it, there will be a social media initiative of my new studio called Crimson Pyramid Games.

Hello, everyone! It has been a year since Campfire Stories was published. I have an exciting plan to revive the World of Campfire Stories in an upcoming solo RPG book, which will serve as a grand homage to the works of Silent Hill. Additionally, I have made updates to the system, now at version 2.0, so your stories will have improved guides and structure. Furthermore, stay tuned for my new Pocket Quest game called ENTITY, which will be available on DriveThruRPG on Monday, the 3rd.

Will there be a PoD version? Some of the pages look very intensive for a home printer.

Dear Benjamin, for campfire story i can tell that not yet. Even it is a standalone game, it is only a part of a Silent hill style, bigger area game (Towns, mountain sanatorium, theme park..). The game is in preparation. There will possibly be few changes in Campfire Story and in moment i will implement all necessary feedback from players i will definitely put is as a PoD game. Campfire story is and it always be a standalone game, but also as a part of something interconnected and far more bigger.

A blackjack driven horror survival RPG? Rules seems interesting. Also very neat design and illustrations, strong visuals. Like it so far!

Thank you Ferdinand. The game is not driven by blackjack mechanics, it uses a blackjack deck of cards for the Exploration mechanic. It triggers Enncounters, ambushes and it randomizes story prompts.

Came across this at random, haven't yet had the time to study it closely but after a quick skim, I like what I'm seeing. This is a light-weight story-oriented game with nice presentation and clear rules. The presentation really sells the mood of this game. I'll see how it actually plays but so far so good.

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.
