Have You Heard About The Beast? + complimentary PDF (via online store)
What is this?
Have you Heard About the Beast is a game of tavern rumours and hearsay. You sit in a tavern or other location where the adventurous gather and share rumours of a foul beast that lives nearby. The locals join in, adding all sorts of colourful nonsense to the creature's description.
Thing is, every bit of it is true.
Glowing eyes the size of shields and jaws that could crush your skull. Someone even told me it communes with the birds to learn our secrets.
It's true! And I heard it guards the hut of a long dead witch who knew the secret to eternal life. The one who slays it could live forever!

It’s all about creating ludicrous encounters with beasts for oneshots, convention games and sidequests in your regular campaign. Play the part of the tavern patrons sharing these rumours, than take your party off to confront them.
Have You Heard About the Beast? is broadly compatible with fantasy RPGs and highly adaptable to other settings as you provide all the stats for the creatures and content is flexible to suit your setting.
This game is played collaboratively with groups of adventurers and a GM, and will accommodate any reasonable RPG group size. The game comes with random roll tables that provide ideas but many of the best ideas will come from within your group.
