Description:

It's Christmas in July! From now through July 28th, this title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our X-mas in July sale page.

Unstoppable maniacs. Gratuitous violence. Nail-biting suspense. Oversexed camp counselors.

Slasher Flick is a roleplaying game that brings all the thrills and chills of "psycho killer" movies from the screen to the tabletop! With a game system that was designed to create and build suspense, Slasher Flick emulates every aspect of the genre with ease and style.

·        Multiple Characters! Each player plays a primary character as well as one or more secondary characters (i.e., victims!).

·        Group-Based Character Creation! Players create their own primary characters, but everyone helps create the secondary characters.

·        Kill Scenes! When the killer strikes, a kill scene begins. A kill scene is a stream of narration punctuated by stat checks. Successful stat checks grant the character survival points, while unsuccessful ones cause a loss of survival points. If the character gains 8, he survives... but if he drops below 0, he’s butchered!

 

·        Genre Points! When a character does something that plays to the conventions of the genre (e.g., checking out the noise), the controlling player receives a genre point that can help out later on in the game.

The rulebook is digest-sized (5.5” x 8.5”) and can be printed 2 pages per sheet of paper.

We play this as a one off in between the Barbarians of Lemuria campaign we are involved in. It is simple and fun...really catching the vibe. Great for novices too. [...]

Pros: Spectrum Games and genre emulation go hand in hand. The book is painstakingly designed to place you within the archetypal horror film with all the good, bad and cheesy that entails. The rules support the genre conventions, such as rewarding the [...]

Building a role-playing game where the PCs are slasher movie victims seems like a loosing cause. Very rarely do you tell players at the beginning of an RPG that all but one or two of their characters will die. With Slasher Flick, Cynthia Celeste Miller [...]

Slasher Flick takes what you like about the genre and puts into a tabletop game. You will have fun making victims and creating ways to get them killed. The rules of the game are easy to learn and will not take too long to get used to. My gaming group [...]

Reading this game is a pleasure. Miller clearly knows and loves the genre and a lot of time and care has been put into this book. The advice section for the Director is helpful advice for any GM. The player advice chapter, though it contains no rules, [...]

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.
