Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game

ADD TO WISHLIST >

In the mountains of Central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind wandered into these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them.

These are the oldest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without also calling blood and darkness?

Long before anything human roamed the Earth, the Appalachian Mountains towered tall and menacing. Their might was made a prison and tomb for beings of immeasurable malice and incomprehensible madness. But time shows no mercy, not even to mountains, and now they lay bare and worn like an old man’s spine. The walls of the prison grow thin, and those that have slumbered soundlessly for millennia begin to stir.

And call to those who would hear them.

Based on the award-winning and amazingly popular fiction podcast, the Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game is a complete, standalone TTRPG powered by the Cypher System. Old Gods of Appalachia’s unique take on cosmic horror is personal, intimate, and atmospheric.

Venture into the dark, eerie past of an alternate Appalachia and enjoy a fluid, story-based roleplaying experience with an intuitive, concept-driven character generation system that gives you limitless options. With loads of lore, dozens of creatures and NPCs, and two complete adventures to launch your campaign, the Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game has everything you need to experience your own stories of horror, hardship, and heart in this immersive, narrative, and deeply chilling setting.

Ravenous creatures of the Inner Dark, sinister plots of the Hollow Men, unearthed beasts that have long dreamt in the dark, and angry forces of the Green. Strive to protect what matters, from these terrors and more, while you seek to know the unknowable and spin a collective tale of hardship, horror, hope, and heart, where every choice requires a sacrifice and your word is (or should be) your bond.

The Old Gods of Appalachia Roleplaying Game includes:

  • Complete rules for a fluid, story-based tabletop roleplaying experience in the eerie world of the hit Old Gods of Appalachia horror podcast.
  • An intuitive, concept-driven character generation system that gives you limitless options.

  • Dozens of dark, dangerous, and powerful creatures and characters to encounter and interact with.
  • Two complete adventures to launch your campaign.

Page 193 mentions the following, but no such map appears in the .pdf copy of the book anywhere.

“You can find a B&L railway map just on the back inside cover of this book.”

Will this be corrected or will an image file be added for download?

I would be surprised if they added the map -- for a long time, they have stopped including the "end papers" with their PDFs.

Yup, I got the notification today, and I’ve downloaded them. Thanks Charles, excellent response!

I can’t help but notice, the maps you did add still do not match the B&L Railway Map, Appalachian Region, B&L Train Station map pictured in the sidebar on page 193.

Will it be possible to add that specific map as another .pdf to the downloads?

The map(s) you have provided are the “general” Appalachia map as shown on page 181.

The map shown on p. 193 is indeed available in PDF and has been shared with backers, ie via download on monte cookes accounts store page. If you haven't yet got your hands on it I'm sure MCG can help you out now.

Despite the messed-up preview I backed this on KS and it is a gorgeous book. Really cool game uses fairly similar rules to the Cypher system. If you are a fan of the podcast and creepy Mountain town shenanigans this might be up your ally.

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.
