As the title says, today Z-LAND is DriveThruRPG’s Deal of the Day, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on Z-LAND yet, there is no better time for it. Until tomorrow 9am (US Central Time) you can grab Z-LAND for only $6. So click on the banner above, or simply here, to get Z-LAND now before the time runs out.
Z-LAND is where humanity is no longer the top of the food chain, where every day could be your last. Hunger, Thirst, Sleep and Exposure all wear down on you in a battle of attrition with the unstoppable Dead. Find the answer to the question “just how long would I survive” as you and your friends attempt to do just that. What makes Z-LAND unique is we take the survival aspect of survival-horror very seriously. You will see your character weaken as sleep deprivation, hunger & thirst slowly whittle them down. But that is where the choice comes in, will you just take it? Or will you do anything & everything necessary to survive? How much of yourself can you retain in your battle to survive?
We hope you all have a very happy new year, and a prosperous 2019 ahead.
Now that Brotherhood is on DriveThruRPG, it’s time to start work on the next project. You voted on what we should work on next, and as you can see by the colourful pie-chart above, you want us to update The Runed Age to the Sigil 1.2 rules.
We’re already hard at work on updating The Runed Age, and making it look clean and pretty for its 1.2 version (and if you join our Discord server, you’ll already see a few sneak peeks), but it’s not just about the looks with this update. When we are finished with it, you will finally be able to get your hands on a Runed Age hardcover version. If you’ve already bought the Runed Age, then when the time comes, we’ll give you a coupon to get the hardcover version at cost price.
The Brotherhood faction mod for the Sigil System is now available for PWYW on DriveThruRPG. Click the banner above or CLICK HERE to get your hands on it!
Brotherhood is all about getting your characters some friends, family and a home to call their own. It’s about making factions, playing in and against them, and working towards something larger than yourself.
Inside the mod you’ll find:
A full generator for building your faction’s history alongside its skills and attributes
Rules for creating a base for your faction and how to upgrade and expand it during play
A system for recruiting prospects that subtly change your faction the more members you get
A mission system for sending your faction out on assignments
Random events that can destabilise your faction if not managed
For the Sigil System as well as the next supplement for Z-LAND, we are working on creating a character generator that will model your character after you (the real life you) in the most faithful way possible. In essence, we want to turn your into a Sigil character.
To build that generator, we need to know one thing: how the 20 Sigil Skills fit together. We need to know which ones go with which, what Skills are contrasted, and if there are groups of Skills that naturally flow together.
That’s where you come in. We made a survey just for you. It has the 20 Sigil Skills in it and you just have to say how good you think you are at each Skill in real life. We’ll then take all the responses, do some fancy data analysis on it, and see what pops out. After all that, we will build the character generator and publish it.
We’ve hit October and that means one thing: it’s time for all things horror with Halloween just around the corner.
So to celebrate all things spooky, we are giving you 50% off on all our horror-themed products over on DriveThruRPG. From now until Halloween you can grab Z-LAND, Haunt, and the two Ruined Man adventures all for half price!
So click on the banners below to start your Halloween season off to a good start!
It’s been less than a week and Z-LAND is doing better than we had ever hoped for!
A couple of days ago Z-LAND took it’s first step on the ladder to Platinum level on DriveThruRPG by hitting Copper rank. It got there blindingly fast, and it will only get better from here on out. The next rank to hit is Silver level and isn’t as easy as getting Copper, so spread the word about Z-LAND and let’s get it up there to the next level!
But hitting Copper level hasn’t been Z-LAND’s only achievement. Since its release it has been sitting comfortably in DriveThruRPG’s top 20 best selling list which is a dream come true.
But it still gets better! Z-LAND is in the top 5 of all of DriveThruRPG’s horror games and supplements. It’s sitting up there with the likes of Cthulhu and vampires, and that’s as it should be, because our zombies are absolutely terrifying.
But still, that is not the achievement we are most proud of. What has been our dream come true is that Z-LAND is currently the number one best selling zombie game on all of DriveThruRPG! How awesome is that!? It has beaten all the heavy-weights of zombie RPGs to get that number one spot! We are proper chuffed to see that.
And while we may gloat and brag about this, because who wouldn’t, it really is all thanks to you. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t have gotten this far. So here is a massive thank you to everyone who has backed our kickstarter, bought a copy of the beta and corebook, watched the YouTube series, or played a game of Z-LAND. You guys are awesome, and this really is your copper medal.
It’s been a long road, but we’ve finally reached the end of it, and we can now officially say:
The Z-LAND corebook is now available!
Click on the fancy cover up above or CLICK HERE to head on over to DriveThruRPG to get your hands on Z-LAND: The Survival Horror RPG.
You can get Z-LAND in three different formats: PDF, Premium Softcover, and Premium Hardcover. If you get either of the physical copies, you can grab the PDF for free. We don’t want to charge you twice for the same thing.
We really could not have done it without you. Your help with the Kickstarter campaign, and the long beta journey have helped us make a product we absolutely love and that we know you will love as well. So give yourself a pat on the back, and then go on DriveThruRPG and get your hands on the shiny new Z-LAND corebook!

Over at Print Mighty and Spread Shirt we got some Haunt shirts and hoodies for sale, and we’re just starting out. Keep an eye on these stores as we will be making new Haunt clothing designs in the future.
So if you’re in NZ or Oceania, check out the Haunt shirts at Print Mighty below.
Or if you’re in North America or Europe, you can find the Haunt clothing at Spread Shirt.
As the title of the blog says, the Haunt RPG is now released and available only on DriveThruRPG for $4.95! Click the cover above or HERE to get your hands on Haunt.
If you haven’t been following the blog posts and don’t know about Haunt, here’s a quick intro:
Haunt does exactly what the title implies, it sets your characters in a spooky location and then sets the horrors upon them.
It’s a game that is set up quickly and gets your players into the game even quicker and easier, but the thing that makes Haunt special is its Secrets System.
In Haunt, players keep secrets from the GM and these secrets are the PCs’ lifeline. Whenever they make a mistake, the GM asks them a question to try and unravel what hidden secrets they have kept buried.
If the GM discovers all their secrets, it’s game over.
So get Haunt now and see how long you can survive before the creatures of the night descend upon you.

The next mod for the Sigil System is out now and it focuses entirely on blood, bone, gore, and becoming immortal.
You can be a blood mage and jump your consciousness from host to host, becoming the perfect infiltrator; and shape your (or others) blood telekinetically to form weapons, armour or tools as you need them.
Or you can be a necromancer, forever living with your decaying body, but raising undead slaves to do your bidding, fight your battles and grant you access to supernatural powers beyond mortal reckoning.
Just remember that immortality and otherworldly powers aren’t free, or even cheap, and you’ll need to pay for it with your very humanity.

Creating a setting is one of the most fun things a person can do. Worldbuilding is a hobby that never ends because there are always more worlds to build. The next world on Stormforge’s plate will work a little bit differently. Rather than building it in secret, releasing only a tease here and there before the big release, we’re going to build it from the ground up in a place where you can see it grow from one little paragraph to a fully fledged setting in which you can play. You can be there every step of the way, and you can tell us what you like and don’t like, and what works and doesn’t work. Your input will be invaluable to us and you’ll see your suggestions and feedback become a reality in the world we will be building. We are aiming for this to become a true collaborative setting between Stormforge and all of you. We have always said that we are tabletop gamers first and foremost and so we would love to be able to make this a setting for gamers by gamers.
So with all of that said, let’s introduce The Final War! It’s a dark fantasy setting where the last few kingdoms of humanity have bound together to form the Dominion of Man so that they can fight back against the gargantuan undead Eternal Empire.
The name is subject to change as is everything in the project, which is entirely the point. We just started it off, so expect it to grow and grow as time passes, so keep the page bookmarked, become a follower on World Anvil and you’ll be kept up to date on everything that happens!
