  • [Beyond the Grave] They Came From Camp Murder Lake!

    New Beyond the Grave supplement was announced, about 80s Slashers flicks! 'They Came From Camp Murder Lake! This is the first sourcebook supplement for any of our They Came From…! game lines, and is a version of They Came From Beyond the Grave!. It’s just started in First Draft stage so I can’t spoil too much, but if you haven’t guessed, this is the sourcebook for playing in the 80s teen slasher flick genre.

    Meanwhile, Matthew and I have been playing with and finalizing ideas for the upcoming new They Came From…! game line for next year. During our Monday Meeting today, we got a fantastic idea from Eddy for the title of this one – which we really needed as Matthew and I just could not find the right words. It is a truly evocative title now, I gotta say! For those of you following along at home, this is not the Western genre one that has been batted around, as we decided that we needed a different approach for our third game in the series. As much as I love my Westerns.'

    That would be a very niche game!

    Oh definitely. I don't know if Wake In Fright is considered Ozploitation, but it left a mark on me.

    I mention a World Guide type thing for Beyond the Grave, but it also occurs to me that such a thing would also be pretty interesting/useful for Beneath the Sea as well. The 1950s aquatic monster genre in Japan, for example, would be kind of easy to guess at, but it would be interesting to see how that sort of thing would or did play out in places like Australia, Britain, Brazil, Mexico, India, and what have you.

    There is the NWE! book coming out for Trinity Continuum which might scratch that itch for you, No One.

    I'll be honest, I would personally help finance a Beyond the Grave sourcebook about Mexico and Mexican horror just to have rules for masked wrestlers fighting monsters, because I am that kind of dork.

    El Santo vs. Blackula would be awesome. Search your feelings; You know it to be true.


    (It does occur to me that some sort of Beyond the Grave Companion or World Guide that looked at 60s and 70s horror trends/genres/film cultures around the globe and how to do them in BtG would be really cool. Chapters for the Italy, Mexico, the UK, Japan, Hong Kong/Taiwan, and so forth. Maybe also some of the regional differences for places like New England, New Orleans, Toronto and the like. And perhaps a look at some of the specifics of Blaxsploitation horror.)

    I'd suggest classic British horror, but I suspect that the main game will already be delving into that quite a bit. Maybe Mexican horror films. Or J-Horror.

    I would say so. They did kinda inspire the American Slasher films of the late 70s to 80s. Plus its slightly different as Giallo films are not always about supernatural elements. So I am all for a Giallo sourcebook. lets hop abroad the Italian psychological horror film genre express!
