Monster of the Week


Happy Halloween! As a holiday treat, this title has been marked down by 33%! For more values, visit our Halloween sale page.

There are monsters out there.

Most people don't believe in them, but they're real. Mostly, when someone finds out that monsters are real, that's just before they die.

But some people are mean enough, smart enough, crazy enough, or hurt enough, that they live. And some of those people go and hunt down more.

That's who you are – someone who decided to go on a crusade against the evil critters that are scurrying around out there.

It could be that you make a stand and defend your hometown from everything evil that comes there.

It could be you take to the road and go find them.

It could be you have magic powers that help out.

It could be that your name came up in prophecies thousands of years ago.

The one sure thing is you aren't gonna go back to your old, safe life.

Monster of the Week is a self-contained roleplaying game of action/horror monster hunting. It's designed to be quick and easy to prep and play.

The rules are based on the Apocalypse World engine.

I have no idea what "The Apocalypse World" system is. Why is it so great for this subject? I love Hunter and Buffy, so does this hold up to them?

Apocalypse World is a rules light RPG game that encourages story based games, for players all the rules needed are on the character sheets, called playsets. Read the AW reviews for in depth info
This variation of the AW engine handles a Buffy style game particularly well, the playsets echo the lead characters, you can also make it more gritty depending on your groups play style..
I don't have any knowledge of Hunter.

I see the Monstrous playbook is included twice. Is this redundant, or is there a subtle difference? :)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
