THE MARTIAL CULT OF BLOOD KNIGHT GAIUS is a 20-page dungeon crawl about a religious order of vampires who deny their feeding urges, instead only drinking the blood of those whom they have given a formal chance to defend themselves. 

The spells, items. and monsters described in this zine are intended for use with Ben Milton’s Knave, but can also be quickly converted for use with B/X or other OSR derivatives. In this zine, you'll find:

  • NINE MONSTERS AND NPCS: Encounter feral and ravenous Mad Vampires, cyclopean Mountain Screamers, dashing and flamboyant Vampire Knights, a foolhardy adventurer called Sycorax, the craven and backstabbing Demon Priest Morpho, and more!
  • TWO HARD-HITTING BOSSES: Compete in a duel for a fabulous reward with the brooding cult leader Blood Knight Gaius, and encounter his bodyguard and trusted companion, the mysterious giant First Disciple Matsunaga.
  • EIGHT SPELLBOOKS AND ENCHANTED ITEMS: Steal Matsunaga's limb-cleaving claymore, wear the Blood Knight's cloak of stars, and gain crystal-control over the Demon Priest Morpho. Read from the spell tomes of the Monastery and learn to summon a full moon, turn the floor into a sea of fire, become a classic movie vampire, and forge a blade from your own blood!
  • EVEN MORE OSR GOODNESS: Build tension with a rumors table about Matsunaga, set the mood with passages of prose to read to your players, flesh out the story with four reasons to visit the Cult and three possible Epilogues, map out the Monastery courtesy of watabou, and gaze upon three full-page illustrations by yours truly!

While the tone of the adventure is meant to be pulpy and spooky, prominent themes include religion, starvation, shame, blood, and slight body horror. Please confirm that each of your players are comfortable with these themes before you play!

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. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available. 



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.
