The Black Heart of Paradise + PDF

Casinos encrust a refugee planetary ring of refuse surrounding a small freighter, a ring known by a telling ‒ and not so telling ‒ title: the Strip. Here, horror links in to tech's alienating aspect. It builds. It rends. Protections drip updates. Spinning wheels load mass care tables. Wires eject from wrists. Biceps bloat like bagpipes. Be you, make do. Some of the gore under your boot:
  • Oils from an indecent trade and an erupting pod light up a PANIC AT THE WEAPON'S BAY
  • 10 Casinos and 7 bars lend Stress relief (and chambered pop songs) throughout the RIOTING ON THE STRIP
  • Leviathan titancrawl with ship sheet of rearranging (and odd) cargo found WITHIN THE HORROR'S PARLOUR
  • Colorful NPCs like Lead Professor Xenoesoterist Limagdalenastelle Staniforchakraborti dot the players' path
  • d100 incorrigible prayers give a boost to pithy ammo, Psychedelics table cures phobias, generators for in-flight horror shows and junk food soothe and heal, table of contents is a table. It is that. In spades. Other things are tables.
  • Killing bridge made from electrolysis, harvested nervous systems and shadowsilk appears: Shut it down.
The sun never rises, the stars never fade and the threat's never more than a roll away in The Black Heart of Paradise♫❥

This game contains references to violence, death, sex, blood, cosmic horror, and monstrousness.

Author's Note: This mod isn't bootcamp. Prose parses tables. Horror is part John Dies At the End, part Alastair Reynolds. Geared toward RP-heavy groups ‒ written for the player who grappled a Grabber Tree to snag a Grabapple. Preview is for half the module, includes town tables, maps and some scenario.

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.

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.
