Unhallowed RPG

Now this sounds like I game I'd fancy playing (or would have loved to written!)



SEATTLE, WA – Continuing with its tradition of richly-detailed dense period fantasy roleplaying games, Eos Press is pleased to announce the dawn of the new dark age with the development of Unhallowed, the gas-mask chic role-playing game of Neo-Victorian horror. Unhallowed, set two hundred years after the outbreak of the Plague, chronicles the exploits of the Undertakers, gritty bounty men who make their

livelihoods hunting the animate dead through the streets of a London that never was.

Neo-Victorian London itself is a sprawling, densely crowded fortification surrounded by fifty-foot walls. The metropolis is blanketed with the thick clouds of smoke billowing from countless factories co-mingling with the cremains of the incinerated dead. Its dingy streets are dimly lit by pale, crackling electrical light fueled by energy broadcast from the city’s Tesla array. It is here that human monsters, driven to madness by desperation and fear, compete with zombies and vampires for prime hunting grounds among the slums and rookeries of the metropolis. Beneath the haunted streets, resurrection men hawk stolen corpses in blood stained black markets to the degenerate ghouls and the amateur anatomists who practice the outlawed science of reanimation.

"This is a great new addition to Eos's family of products," said Brad Elliott, business manager for Eos Press. "Our company is committed to excellence in game and setting design, and Unhallowed will be an example of both."

Written and created by Jason Soles and Nicole Vega, Unhallowed was inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Nikola Tesla. Painstakingly researched by the authors, the game is steeped heavily in Victorian history and science to provide a rich role-playing experience.

Launching in Fall 2006, Unhallowed features an incredibly detailed setting, a fast paced rules system, an in-depth anatomical study of zombies, rules for psychics, ghosts and a vast variety of supernatural horrors.

Eos Press is a Seattle-based game company founded in 2003 by Hsin Chen and Aron Anderson. In addition to its work on such leading-edge products as Weapons of the Gods, Eos has also partnered with other companies to produce popular games like Creatures and Cultists, Delta Green and Godlike. For more information about Eos Press, contact business manager Brad Elliott at info@eos-press.com, or see the logo at www.eos-press.com.

Jason Soles is an accomplished writer and artist. In addition to being co-founder of Catalyst Studios, he is also an independent film maker. His gaming credits include work for Privateer Press, Wizards of the Coast, and WizKids.

Nicole Vega is a talented newcomer to the game industry.

This sounds promising. I heard great things about Weapons of the Gods but I haven't picked it up yet because my players aren't really that interested in wuxia.

Weapons of the Gods has been selling really well. I think we got through about 20 in the first week and another 20 on the restock!

I haven't had a look at it as yet either as I'm unfamiliar with Wuxia and haven't had any real time to flick through new titles recently :(

Btw, got your email (thanks) will reply probably Wednesday as I have the day off then (and will *not* be tempted by Civ4)

Does sound very interesting.
I'm begining to get lost in the sea of Victoriana rpgs!
Seen 'Etherscope' as well?

I picked Etherscope up when it came in but have yet to have a proper look at it.

I notice it is on your new releases list,
I'll have to come and have a look.

I think the idea is that someone in modern day develops this thing that lets you enter something akin to the matrix.
However, this matrix is a steam-punk Victoriana style thing.

Shame its D20!

I usually have two simultaneous thoughts when I see something like this.

The first is "cool! I can't wait to see it!"

The second is "bollocks, why didn't I write that?"
