DriveThruRPG Halloween Sale: All of Their Strengths

The DriveThruRPG Halloween Sale is in its last days, and we’ve dug through to find some gems that might appeal to you. This post will cover another quirky but fun game:

All of Their Strengths

It was during a previous Drive Thru RPG sale that I found All of Their Strengths (AotS). With a striking cover and a title taken from a quote from one of my favorite action movies (Blade, of course!), it immediately caught my eye. I gave it a quick read and immediately put it on the calendar for my Gauntlet City Limits living campaign and ran a few fun sessions!

AotS is a high-action game where your character is a hybrid of one (or more) different supernatural creatures. The combination of those powers make your character something truly unique, and, of course, their inhuman parents are pretty much terrible. So you’re just the one to stop them from hurting regular folks, and do it with serious style!

The game knows it’s a campy romp, and that’s what makes it shine. The world is painted in neon and wrap-around shades and has no doubt about how cool it is.

If AotS piqued your interest and you’re not sure what stories to kick off with it, the Holiday Special is also on sale. This is a very inexpensive pair of story starters and some new Hybrid creatures with all new powers for different exciting PC combos.

The AotS Halloween bundle is another pair of story starters and even more Hybrids. The Halloween supplement isn’t on sale, but it’s pretty inexpensive and definitely worth checking out.

DriveThruRPG Halloween Sale: Creepy Doll Studios

One Foot in the Grave &
Dude, Run!

The DriveThruRPG Halloween Sale is in its last days, and we’ve dug through to find some gems that might appeal to you. This post will cover two games from Creepy Doll Studios.

One Foot in the Grave

Are you looking for a bit of whimsy in your fight against the lumbering zombie fiction out there? One Foot in the Grave is a silly romp of a game where you play an elder in a retirement home that’s being invaded by the walking dead (™)!

Yes, you can have foot chases between a lumbering Romero-style shambler and a guy who just got a hip replacement. I ran a hilarious one-shot of OFitG and this game reminds me of Bubba Ho-Tep in pitch and play, and I love that about it. Bonus, you fill a BINGO card as a part of play.

Dude, Run!

Dude, Run is a storytelling game with light competitive elements where the PCs are all part of a crew investigating “haunted” places for a TV show and trying to spin completely BS reasons that the very mundane noises or sights are actually signs of the undead! The mechanics of the game allow you to amp up your “belief” in the supernatural to try and sell the haunting, but be careful! You just might freak yourself out and run for the hills.

If you like camera confessionals and playing broad characters, Dude, Run is definitely worth a shot.
