I'm raising funds for a print run of GORGON ROT as a slick CD booklet. Buy a digital copy to contribute towards the goal of a limited print. 

GORGON ROT is a New Wave of Old School Fantasy Roleplaying game designed as a CD booklet. Capture the feeling of games like Fighting Fantasy with a modern spin, inspired by the new wave of traditional heavy metal. 

  • A simple 2d6 mechanic fans of old, yellowed gamebooks will be familiar with
  • A push-your-luck system: your Luck score gives you great power, but depletes as you use it, so use it wisely!
  • Designed for grid combat and hexcrawling
  • Find the secret apocalyptic spell!
  • Perfect for pulling out at the pub before a gig

This 12-page booklet contains everything you need to play, including a bestiary and pregen characters. 

Bonus content: includes the Foul Sorcery EP in case you're feeling a bit necromantic.

License CC BY-SA 4.0 - you're free to adapt and create your own GORGON ROT hacks, Singles (adventures), LPs (campaigns) and EPs (supplements).  Make your game Gutted by GORGON ROT.

I really dig Fighting Fantasy inspired games, Gorgon Rot stands out with its flavor. It even inspired me to write a Dungeon Synth/Metal track for a Gutted by Gorgon Rot hexcrawl  🤘 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fCEsSMhikPNks6-CyC1PLWmwEzwxCg2F/view?usp=shari...


So, this is incredible!!!!

Thank you so much!
