Now available in print: They Came from Camp Murder Lake! for They Came from Beyond the Grave!

You run as fast as you can, but there he’ll be, right behind you whenever you look over your shoulder.

You can hide under the bed, and it might be the last place she checks, but I promise she’ll check.

You can riddle their body with bullets, gouge at their flesh with blades, run over them with your car, but they’ll be lurching back to life as soon as you’re out of shot.

The creatures, the entities, the killers, the slashers from Camp Murder Lake and elsewhere will never stop their spree. 

But maybe, just maybe, you might be the sole survivor at the end of the movie.  

They Came from Camp Murder Lake! is a sourcebook for Players and Directors wanting to embrace the thrills and horrors of the 1970s and 1980s slasher movie genre, when arguably, it was at its peak.

This game presents everything you need to play a terrifying horror movie in the style of Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and every other favorite of the slasher set.

They Came from Camp Murder Lake! uses the Storypath System, which you can find in the pages of the They Came from Beyond the Grave! rulebook.

They Came from Camp Murder Lake! includes:

  • Five new playable Archetypes and a multitude of new Origins and Ambitions!
  • New Cinematics, Quips, Stunts, and a new mechanic: The Twist!
  • A panoply of dread-inducing slashers, including cannibals, dream stalkers, evil children, killer clowns, homicidal hitchhikers, chameleonic stepfathers, and many, many more!
  • All the guidance a Director needs for running games filled with suspense and scares, including variant styles of gameplay beyond the expected slasher movie arcs and a thorough presentation of potential settings!
  • A full scenario you can run straight from the pages of this book! Get murdering!
