A downloadable horror RPG scenario

Ciaron played bass for The Gutters. Now he's dead, so you're headed to his home town for the funeral and to play a gig in his memory. You're going to see where he grew up. He hailed, it turns out, from a village in south Armagh, where soldiers and paramilitaries contend for control of the roads and fields. 

And not far from the village something strange and ancient stirs. All that blood, it had to go somewhere. 

"The Five Techniques" is the debut edition of No Future, a zine containing a new 1970s  punk-scene Lovecraftian RPG scenario in each issue. 


I recently finished an excellent three-session run of the zine with four players, and this is my review:  "The Five Techniques is equal parts raucous, brooding, tense and politically astute. With a brash and colourful but GM-friendly layout and studiously helpful supporting materials, the vibrant radicalism of 70s Punk clashes and fuses with the simmering violence of the Troubles and something old and sinister beneath." 

Perfect aesthetics. This is one of those 5/5 would buy again type of deals. Worth every penny.

Love this zine, and am hoping to run it soon!

I really want to make my own scenario with a  similar pitch (on a much smaller scale, admittedly), that being "70s punks + Lovecraftian horror".

I want to make sure I wouldn't be stepping on any toes by doing so. Is there a way I can contact you?

Hi mate, glad you like the zine! 

You 100% do not need to worry about stepping on toes.

Looking forward to the next issue. 

Thanks! Us too. 

We're sorting out the musical component, and finalising some other bits  and pieces.
