Monster of the Week: Codex of Worlds: Apocrypha

Selected Option:

The Codex of Worlds convulses like a thrashing beast between your hands and suddenly, amid a guttural howl and a puff of sulfur, a second tome appears: the fabled Apocrypha!

More Team playbooks, new rules, and additional Mysteries expand your Monster of the Week game even further! 

Multiply your Hunters’ firepower with the Army of One. Return from retirement with Back to Square One. Escape the apocalypse (and prevent the next one) with the Doomed World Exiles. Assemble your own crew of investigative journalists from Monster Revelations. Use the Storied Hunter Lineage to tap generations of monster hunting expertise. Or get your adrenaline fix with the Thrill-Seekers Team playbook.

No matter which Team playbook you choose, the Curse-Eater will serve a valuable role consuming evil magic as you face down threats. Nevermind that Corruption track, let’s find another monster!

For game masters, six new Mysteries help you dive into the alternate worlds introduced in the Codex of Worlds:

  • Visitors_final.pngA volcanic eruption threatens the prehistoric Hunters of Bone Spear in Ravenous Fire.
  • The Dreaming Army marches inevitably forward, their ranks swelling each night. Stop them before they engulf the Soaring City of Hermessia! A Mystery for use with Dreaming with the Gods.
  • Missing persons and strange symbols in the East End are just the beginning in Butterflies, a haunt for the Gothic Century.
  • Society begins to unravel and firebrands take to the streets to preach temperance. As the city descends into chaos, how will you stop whoever is out to get their Sweet Revenge?
  • The fate of the Monster Marches is on the line in Enemies to Lovers. Will your Hunters work behind the scenes to back one of the suitors to the throne or, perhaps, step up and become one themselves?
  • Some doors were never meant to be opened. But what team of Hunters has even been able to leave well enough alone? Enter This Strange Old House and find out what lurks behind The Broken Door.

The new resources for game masters don’t end there. Case Closed offers a system for creating quick 15-30 minute mini-Mysteries. And Wait, Monsters Are Real? introduces prelude adventures. Not everyone has the skills of a Hunter. In this funnel-style setup, you play regular folk striving to survive their first encounter with the supernatural. Ideal as a springboard to set up a new campaign of Monster of the Week

Apocrypha requires the Monster of the Week core game and The Codex of Worlds supplement to take full advantage of its content. At 210 pages, it expands the Team playbooks and world frameworks introduced in The Codex of Worlds by nearly 50%.

Codex of Worlds: Apocrypha. New Teams. New Mysteries. New Ways to explore Monster of the Week.

I thought when I first saw this that there was a POD option but now it appears that is not the case? Will this have POD for those of us who prefer to have physical copies at the table? Thank you.

We're just waiting for the proofs to arrive so we can review them and make sure there is no printing issue. I expect POD will be available within a couple of weeks.

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.
