Pelgrane Press’ surreal and supernatural RPG, The Yellow King, did not have an easy ride from Kickstarter to today, but it’s here now and warping reality in all the right ways.
Inspired by the horror tales of Robert W. Chambers’s The King in Yellow, The Yellow King RPG uses the Quickshock of GUMSHOE to have characters investigate the unwholesome influences of Carcosa.
Games stretch across four eras, with four sets of PCs, but connected in some way. Start in 1890s Bohemian Paris and end up in This Is Normal Now and a world which is nothing like our own.
King Collection – $17.95
The King Collection would have a retail price of $55 if you bought it from the digital shelves. The core RPG is four volumes of surreal horror.
- The Yellow King RPG
- Yellow King Suite
Pay more than the weighted average to unlock a further $56 in Robert W. Chambers-themed wrongness.
- Absinthe in Carcosa
- Annotated King in Yellow
- The Missing and the Lost
- New Tales of the Yellow Sign
Investigating Carcosa helps support Car International.
