Ballad of Bergharuth

Concept: “Tales of an ancient demon prince. Demonic tunes from his flute make the earth tremble and crack open, revealing terrors previously unseen.”
Content:
Copious lore, a table of guises Bergharuth takes, and stats for Suffocating Tentacles
Writing:
A sinister tone and visceral, violent imagery; also includes some nascent adventure seeds
Art/design:
Repetition of organic forms and lines help create a visual unity and graphically represent the concepts described in the text
Usability:
Could be implemented as a background plot or counternarrative to the primary apocalyptic scenario

Haunted Demonologist / Demons & Beasts

Concept: “You achieved what all others failed to do, and called a creature from the Beyond.”
Content:
Enslave infernal familiars for fun and profit (mostly fun)
Writing:
Clear, expressive, and entertaining
Art/design:
Good use of color to delineate sections and add visual emphasis; illustrated by appropriate, atmospheric engravings
Usability:
Simple for the player, and the demon-switching rules provide room for GMs to torment players

Martolea, Tuesday’s Demon

Concept: “Tuesday’s Demon rambles into desolate villages from its den high in the mountains only after a grisly tragedy has occurred on a Tuesday.”
Content:
A bizarre, subversive, brutal beast and  a simmering, horror-themed investigation spanning a few days in a seemingly quiet town
Writing:
Includes a standard stat block as well as additional attributes and an overview of the monster’s MO; the adventure balances subtle tension and intrigue with moments of overt violence and gore
Art/design:
  Graphic design aids in navigating the adventure; illustrations add lots of creepy visual character
Usability:
  Includes a town map and an appendix of character sketches for quick reference

Siege Goat-Demon

Concept: “Unspeakable is the malice that brought the siege goat-demon to life. Stranger still is the purpose of strapping a siege ballista to its forearm.”
Content:
An adaptation of DOOM’s Cyberdemon
Writing:
Predominantly deals with elaborating on attacks and Special
Art/design:
Linear, easy-to-use layout with splashes of red to unify the image and text
Usability:
Particularly lethal if you put it at the end of a narrow hallway beside a stack of ammunition

The Endless Demon Deck

Concept: “The demons of The Vile Court are escaping the black oubliette in which they have been forgotten. In the process they are chewed, mangled, and remade.”
Content:
36 tarot-size cards containing monster heads, trunks, and legs
Writing:
Each card contains stats and abilities (and the occasional pet)
Art/design:
Monster components are diverse but coherent when aligned; mostly greyscale figures against vivid yellow grounds with occasional highlights or shocks of color
Usability:
Requires additional resources in The Masticator Gate for full functionality

The Hull House Devil Baby

Concept: “You’ve heard that everyone abandoned the house except for the baby. Or was it because of the baby?”
Content:
A floating, telekinetic devil baby replete with horns and hooves
Writing:
Provides concrete mechanics but leaves the lore and details ambiguous
Art/design:
Easy-to-navigate layout, colors add emphasis and facilitate quick reference, and damn if that isn’t one seriously evil devil-baby head
Usability:
Lots of room for GMs to adapt situation to their needs

The Vaults of Torment

Concept: “Explore a demon-infested hell-hole below the city of Schleswig.”
Content:
A modular, procedurally generated dungeon replete with ambient hazards, elaborate set pieces, monsters, tables for generating inhabitants, a pantheon of demonic gods, and powerful artifacts; also includes terrain “tiles” to print, cut, and assemble during the game
Writing:
Well written with a grim, gruesome tone and copious imagery to match
Art/design:
A variety of page layouts crafted and organized for easy usability at the table
Usability:
Easy to use on both the GM and player sides; Zombification provides a countdown clock that adds additional lethality
