The Phylactery Omnibus - PDF Only

Celebrating their fourth year of putting the grind back into the Grindhouse, Planet X Games is bringing you The Phylactery Omnibus - a collection of their first four zines (The Phylactery 1-4).

This volume includes an additional 50+ pages of ALL NEW, never before seen content, along with creator interviews, a cover gallery, bonus art and a sketchbook that takes a look at the evolution of the zine since its inception.

The content of The Phylactery zines is ALL OSR, ALL THE TIME – completely compatible with clones, retro clones and spawn-vat simulacra from early editions of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG. This big ole' boy is perfect for the "plug-n-play, straight from the page to the table" function that the original issues are known for.


The Phylactery Omnibus delivers ALL NEW marauding monsters, wondrous magical items, forbidden spells, ancient artifacts, shadowy organizations, interesting NPCs, fantastic locations, random tables and alternate rules, along with FOUR hexcrawls and FOUR full-fledged adventure scenarios. One of those hexcrawls is so damn big it could have been its own zine!

We use USPS, UPS and DHL. Rates are based on current service rates and are subject to change. For the majority of items we ship in deluxe padded bubble mailers with bags and boards for added protection or with cardboard book mailers. Larger orders will be finely packed as well. We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.  





    Standard Shipping (USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL)

    • Takes 2-4 Business days, usually
    • Tracking included
    • All items in store are available to be shipped using these methods
    • Insured, lost or damaged items will be covered


    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.

    Awesome collection of zines and the extra bit made it worth grabbing even though I already owned the individual zines.
