Catch the most wanted criminal in the galaxy!

Bandit, murderer, known to all, seen by none... has he killed a thousand men? Has he saved a dozen worlds? His legend is as large as the Rim itself, his trail as elusive as a wisp of starlight in the empty realms of space. The reward for him is the largest in history.

From Keepsake to Altair, a group of bounty hunters must follow a trail of clues across the Inner Frontier, racing against their rivals, to be the first to track down the Outlaw King.

An adventure for starting bounty hunters using the What's OLD is NEW roleplaying game system, set in the far future.

Based on the novel by Mike Resnick. Available now.

Welcome to the Dark Decade

The 1980s were a dark time, with the shadow of nuclear annihilation, and the constant give and take of the Cold War, Central American Guerrilla Uprisings, corporate greed and the rise of MTV. 

There is, however, another danger, more evasive, but more immediate.  There is a dark and supernatural subculture that lives parallel to our own, a world of vampires, ghouls, monsters, mad scientists and demons. Only the heroes—using their divinely inspired, sorcerous, or technological abilities—can keep these hidden, but deadly, forces of evil at bay. This adventure takes place in 1980s New York City, and enmeshes the players deeply into the modern horror genre as vampires and worse prey on the populace.

Includes new Dhampir and Werefolf heritages along with the Vampire Slayer, Demonologist, Exorcist, Guardian, and Sorcerer careers. 

The adventure From Dust to Dawn takes the characters from the streets of New York into a dark section of the New York Underground, a hidden corner of the world away from prying eyes, as they track down a dangerous new drug that transforms the youth of today into psychotic killers.

A new adventure now available for your modern WOIN games!

The Possessed: Coming Later This Year!

28166511_10156220127678707_2557381836257329502_n.jpg

Demons live amongst us.

Their tendrils can be felt everywhere; they push at the edges of the minds of the vulnerable. Let us in, they whisper, let us in. And sometimes, sometimes, we say Yes.

A handful of men and women stand between the world and this ultimate darkness, holding it back however they can. They are Exorcists, imbued with the authority to thrust demons out from the flesh they have made their home and hurl them back into the abyss. But the Exorcists themselves are only human and their adversaries are creatures of unfathomable power and malevolence – every human weakness is an avenue through which a soul might be lost.

How long can they be kept at bay?

How long can the darkness be held back?

The Possessed – For We Are Fallen is a setting and adventure book for the W.O.I.N. system.
