WPGL is pleased to announce the release of our first BBG Legacy Edition title.

Black Books: Tomes of the Outer Dark (BBG Legacy Edition)

An investigative horror role-playing game rooted in the OSR tradition. In Black Books the player characters are ordinary people (historians, detectives, scholars, artists, etc) drawn into a dark and horrific version of our world – the world of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.

As the investigators learn more of the true horrors of the world and the irrelevance of humanity, their sanity inevitably withers away. The rules are biased towards playing in the 1920’s although there is no reason these rules can’t be adapted to other time periods.

Rooted in the OSR, the rules are familiar – they use a D20 for most actions – and the games is class based, with multiple investigator classes – Charmer, Enforcer, Sneak, Scholar and Spiritualist.

Plus two (2) bonus classes!
– Dilettante
– Gadabout

If you like old school gaming and you like horror, this might well be the game you’re looking for!

So, grab yourself a copy of Black Books: Tomes of the Outer Dark (BBG Legacy Edition).

It’s available digitally and in print (glossy cover) from DriveThruRPG and in print from Lulu (matte cover)!



Stay tuned for the re-release of the other BBG Legacy Edition titles in our stable. Thanks for your support!
