Luchadores Against Horror
This is for the first of two sessions trying out Kevin Crawford’s (Red Tide, Scarlet Heroes, Godbound) sandbox horror rpg, Silent Legions. It includes a “Luchadores Against Cthulhu” GM guide. Attendance at both sessions is not required, but strongly encouraged.
We will have model characters you’ll be able to tune. It’s a light, OSR-y system in line with Crawford’s other games. You will be luchadore, masked wrestlers, travelling the country incognito as part of the wrestling circuit. But your real purpose is hunting down dark foes who threaten civilization. Think Supernatural meets Lucha Underground. By donning your masks, you gain great powers. But you still might get eaten by something truly terrible.
Here’s Crawford’s blurb for the game: “Silent Legions is a game of modern-day Lovecraftian horror, one designed to allow courageous investigators and luckless would-be victims to strike back against the horrors of an encroaching darkness. Where the ineffable abominations of foreign realities bleed into our world, these heroes are ready to do what they must to drive them back. When terrible truths and forbidden sorcery boil up from hidden places, they break the cults and stifle the black revelations that madmen would force on an unwilling world. Most of these heroes die in the process; some suffer worse fates. A very few live to be examples to those who will come after.
Silent Legions is different from many existing Lovecraftian games in that it is designed as a sandbox toolkit for the Game Master. Entirely new gods, aliens, entities, and other components of a new Mythos can be created, plunging the perhaps-too-familiar denizens of the conventional Cthulhu Mythos into a fresh and satisfying mystery. Many of the tools within these pages are designed to be used with any role-playing game of enigmatic horror, and you should feel free to pick and pluck from them to serve your own purposes.“
