Settlers of a Dead God (Fastplay)

We live on a dead God that is slowly decomposing... 

We do not know what was before the Dead God, but one thing is certain: we were born on a sacred corpse floating in the universal ether and slowly decomposing. Everything that lived before the great God was forgotten with its death.  

From the decomposing body of this immense being brought life; its blood formed the seas that bathe the coasts, its skin became the land, deserts, and mountains. And from its tears, rivers and lakes were born. The insects were the first inhabitants who walked this putrid land and through the infinite power emanating from within they evolved into insectoids; new beings with powers far superior to those of their ancestors.  

The different species of insectoids organized themselves into tribes, cities, and kingdoms during a period of peace, leading to an age of discovery. The explorers gradually created a map of the lands they inhabited, discovering they lived upon a divine corpse.  

Settlers of a Dead God is a forthcoming setting for the Old School Essentials roleplaying game that can be easily adapted to a multitude of systems. This preview pdf is a teaser for the full book, coming soon (TM) from Exalted Funeral Press.

Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement.

If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
