Welcome to Christmas in July! For the rest of July, this digital title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Following in the tradition of SURVIVE THIS!! Zombies! comes SURVIVE THIS!! Dark Places & Demogorgons, a tabletop roleplaying game that uses the Original 1970s Fantasy Roleplaying game rules but mutates it into this retro nightmare. It’s sleek, slender and creepy as Hell.

 

In Dark Places & Demogorgons, you play as high school students during the early 1980s. The town you live in has had a rash of disappearances and strange happenings. The adults seem lost as what to do, the police are as clueless as ever and aren’t helping and Reverend Phillips is on another witch-hunt. It’s up to you and your friends to figure out what’s going on and stop it from happening again!

Hi, I'm considering a purchase of the PDF plus printed book, but wanted to check and see if errata had been cleaned up and corrected in the current file? Thanks!

Hi Jay! Print copy is the final with all the errata cleaned up. With the PDF you'll find 3 version, one being the "Final" the others being previous iterations of the game, with so rules differences. These previous versions are included by request of early game playtesters who wanted to continue with the original rules set....warts and all. lol. I hope this helps to answer your question.

Bought this yesterday, but I'm not sure why there are three separate versions of the PDF included. One of them lacks covers and the other two include them, but they're at the end of the document, which rather defeats the purpose -- if you've going to include cover pages in a PDF, the front cover should be the very *first* page and the back cover should be the very *last* page (here, it comes before the character sheet). Also, I'm not sure what the point is of including a separate version without covers, *especially* when the covers are stuck at the back.

Anyhow, the two versions with covers have the same page count and are almost identical in file size, but only one of them is dated, so I don't know which is the more recent version. Can anyone clear this up?

Hello Matthew, thanks for the feedback. The final file is DTRPG_FULL_INT_WITH_COVERS.pdf. The other two versions were previous versions that had some rules that are different than what appears in the final version. We left them attached for the people who were already playing the game with the prior rules system to be able to reference. :)

Thanks for the quick response. I suspected something like that, and I'm all in favor of older iterations being available (sometimes I don't like the changes and prefer to hang onto a previous version; sometimes the file size gets massively inflated for no apparent reason). However, the way they're titled is confusing and inconsistent, made even more so by the fact that three of the files have slightly different titles when downloaded than what's displayed on-screen. The one that has "FINAL" in the file name *isn't* the most recent version, according to you, and only two of them are dated. I'd recommend changing the titles so that they follow a consistent pattern and are *all* dated. And I still think you should put the covers in their proper place in the document.

Great book, was and will always be Bloat Games Kickstarter support. I went in on this pdf for the first time as I loved Stranger Things and never looked back. I believe I have all the products from Bloat Games now. I also just purchased Printed version of all Books. That's saying a lot for someone who's last RPG book purchase (with the exception of Call of the Cthulhu) was Battletech Fanpro Tech.Read out. Nice clean simple modified Black Hack system. Bloat Games does take their time to listen to feedback and test out suggestions and isn't afraid to work with their customers/fans to create more materials for any of their systems.

Can't wait for the POD. Going to be perfect for breaking up the old campaign when needed. Will be an easy sell for the whole table. ETA on further works in the line? Vampire source book I see. Johnsonville stuff?

Hi Ben!

Yes there will be a POD available within a month.

The Kickstarter version have been ordered and once they arrive and then are shipped to the KS backers, the POD will go live then. I just want to make sure that the KS backers get their copies first.

Thanks,

Eric B.

Awesome Job!!!! I agree wit the others on here, what a great take on the original D&D system with a sprinkle of modern gaming. Being a child from this time period, this was a no brainer purchase, I'm just bummed I missed the kickstarter window. Will all of the supplemental materials be available here? Once again, awesome job!!!!

does this include the Jeffersontown setting guide or is that a separate pdf?
Customer avatar

There is a descent amount of info about Jeffersontown included in the core book. However, the actual Jeffersontown Setting Guide will be an entirely separate 100+ pages pdf that is currently being written and layed out that will be released as soon as it's ready.

I second the previous purchaser's response: GREAT JOB! I have been looking for years for a system that correctly emulates the teenage exploration of the unknown as seen in many movies and shows from the Goonies to Stranger Things. Dark Places & Demogorgons far exceeded my expectations. Very through set of rules and well written with the right slant of the roleplaying rules I grew up with. Love the direction you are taking with the Johnsonville setting. Can't wait for more material. Hope it includes a map of Johnsonville and the surrounding areas.

Format
Original electronic
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.
