The Horror of it All: Tagline Teasers!

Posted by Harbinger451 on March 1, 2012

The Horror of it All CategoryIntroducing the Horror of it All‘s first set of 13 tag-line teasers… can you guess which horror movie classics (though some are not so classic if you get my drift) these tag lines came from? Most should be easy for true horror aficionados to get… but not all I hope!

Here are the taglines… enjoy:

1. “In Space no one can hear you scream!”

2. “On ancient ground, at the edge of the world, an evil born in Heaven is about to be unleashed on Earth.”

3. “The picture with the Fear Flasher and the Horror Horn.”

4. “Don’t give away the ending, it’s the only one we have.”

5. “They’re back… they’re hungry… and they’re NOT vegetarian.”

6. “Eight legs, two fangs and an attitude…”

7. “Silent, Invisible, Invincible. He’s coming to town with a few days to kill.”

8. “Keep the children home! And if you’re squeamish, stay with them!”

9. “Conjure up your deepest, darkest fear, then call that fear to life.”

10. “Sleep Kills.”

11. “Beware the beat of the cloth wrapped feet.”

12. “Reality isn’t what it used to be.”

13. “Trapped in time… surrounded by evil… and low on gas.”

Introducing the Anti-Hero RPG Role Playing Game rules – title page!

Posted by Harbinger451 on December 11, 2011

The Anti-Hero RPG CategoryHarbinger451’s universal RPG is adaptable to any Period, Setting or Genre and lets you play effective Evil or Indifferent characters as well as Good ones.

This roleplaying game is designed specifically to give those wishing to play Evil or Indifferent characters a rewarding and rounded gaming experience as would be available to those playing Good characters. It is intended that the game world be populated equally with characters of all alignments making the game play more challenging for all concerned – and the consequences of actions and the motivations behind them more difficult to predict and counter.

The biggest difference between this system and that of most others is the fact that once your character’s Stats and Skills are set there will be little room for the improvement of their levels. Repeated use of skills will not allow the almost unlimited incremental increases seen in most RPGs… you will be able to hone those skills to a certain maximum level (plus 10 from the starting level) but beyond that you can not go – there are no über characters with every Stat & Skill at 100 here.

Your initial choices when creating a character and how you play the game are crucial to that character’s survival and progress. Also, if you neglect certain Skills and Stats their levels will start to diminish to a minimum (minus 10 from the starting level) – making for a much more level (and interesting) playing field. Character advancement only manifests as Rank and Reputation… or the lack of it.

Read the rest of this introduction on the title page HERE! Lots more on this coming SOON!
