Dark Places & Demogorgons

“In the 1980s strange things happened everywhere!”

Dark Places & Demogorgons for Old-School Essentials is an OSR Horror TTRPG set in the 1980s, where you play as teenagers from a small town where strange occurrences began popping up all around. The adults are too busy to care, and the police don't believe you. It’s up to you and your friends to figure out what’s going on and stop it from happening again!

Dark Places & Demogorgons for Old-School Essentials utilizes the B/X rules revised to perfection in Old-School Essentials by Gavin Norman of Necrotic Gnome. Nothing has been doubled up from OSE, including any material from the Player Characters section of OSE (e.g. including the rules for character creation and ability scores) or the Adventuring section of OSE (e.g. including the rules for combat, saving throws, ability checks, dungeon exploration, etc.). With Dark Places & Demogorgons for OSE, you're getting all new gaming material!
