The End is Near
It is October 1922 and a meteor is heading towards Eorthe.
Hysteria and despair spreads like wildfire.
Is this the end of Doggerland?

An unearthly madness strikes the citizens of Glimminge. At the observatory, an ageing astronomer is murdered as the meteor’s red glow intensifies by the hour. Amid doomsday heralds and a frantic population, the investigators must find the murderer before it strikes again. But what if it is already too late?

The Red Star is a standalone scenario for the Odd Soot roleplaying game, based on Mythras. It also forms the first part of the longer campaign A Falling Mind.

The campaign is written by Nils Hintze (Tales from the Loop, Vaesen, The Walking Dead) and Erik Hylander (Symbaroum). Illustrations by Clarence Redd. 

Odd Soot is a sci-fi RPG set in the 1920s, where humans have explored the interstellar neighbourhood around Earth. In addition to inhabitable exoplanets and intelligent aliens, they have also triggered a semi-dormant plague - The Odd Soot.

The first reviews and comments are dropping in for the new books! And The Red Star is getting a lot of love:

“I’m absolutely in awe! The story set against the approaching meteor is a pressure cooker slowly turned to max. And then some.” Evan J.

“The plot and immersive 1920s atmosphere had me hooked from the first page.” Nathan W.

“The Red Star is like the missing link between Vaesen RPG and Tales from the Loop. Nils Hintze and Erik Hylander has brought their wonderfully low-key weirdness to Odd Soot.” Lily A.

Thanks everyone who bought the books! I wish you many hours of reading and playing.

And here are the titles for the coming books:

  • Book II - What We Carry With Us. The PCs embark on an expedition across the North Atlantic, to find the meteor’s impact site. But the competition is fierce from two other teams - who will get there first?
  • Book III - The Giggling Iceberg. The expeditions have reached the impact site, only to find the massive space rock fully intact - a red island in the middle of nowhere. Do they dare go ashore? And what are the geometric patterns cut into the icy rock?
