Stealing it was the easy part...

Cursed Vaults is a GM-less RPG game, meaning you can play it solo, co-op or with a GM. It’s a narrative-first type of game of horror with cthulhuesque elements, with little math involved to focus on the story.

In Cursed Vaults, you venture to steal an artifact from a well-guarded Vault of a secret Society, dabbling in forbidden arts. To get a hold of it, you must overcome guards, locked doors, traps, and even supernatural obstacles that Society puts in your path.
But once you grasp the famed artifact, you realize that maybe stealing it was a bad idea, and some legends really are true. Your character(s) may not withstand the horrible powers of the Artifact...

Key features:

  • simple system with roots in PbtA, but without moves
  • you can pick your action die for the roll (ranging from d4 to d12) BUT that dice becomes one of your challenge dice for the next roll. This makes it easy to narrate how one action leads to another.
  • playable solo, co-op without a GM, or as a classic GM-guided game
  • three Locations, three Secret Societies and five Artifacts you can use to tailor your mission
Three pages of Location, Society and Artifact that together create a mission
The game uses clocks to track both the progress of your heist and the imminent threats. It's quick, easy and you can see at a glance how the things are going.

But once you grab the precious Artifact, its horrible powers awaken! Each Artifact's influence manifests differently, telling its story - if you'e not quick enough, to the very end!

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.
