A downloadable TTRPG

Buy Now$3.00 USD or more

There is a story. A story of mountains rich in ore, of soil rich in nutrients, of forests rich in game. A land where the locals and their Bosses went to war over the soul of those hills and hollers, a war that nobody won and everybody lost. A war that watered the hungry grasses with blood, until those grasses grew and grew and grew until they sucked the life out of everything else. Until nothing but the grass was left.

The story says the Bosses went back to their cities, and the locals found other hills to mine, other plots to till. All that rich soil, all those deep veins in the earth, all those woods full of meat and fur and bone - all just waiting, for someone to stake their claim, to find the deeds left behind. After all, land’s the only thing they ain’t makin’ more of.

And all that’s in the way is a little bit of grass.

The Flash is an incursion for Jesse Ross's Trophy RPG.

From the Trophy Trifolds jam roundups:

A search over blood-hungry hill and vale for land deeds left behind in the aftermath of a war between locals and bosses that everybody lost... though, the grass, the grass won.

Three things I liked:

  1. "You begin to grow, when others aren't looking."
  2. "... ragged flesh the color of a full moon, feasted upon by fat yellow maggots. The prospector’s empty eyes stare up into the empty sky."
  3. "Heart Dropsy: kill the will to carry on"

This is such an incredible incursion, and frankly I think it is incredible as a starting point for anyone wanting to try their hand at writing their own incursion, be it in trifold formatting or otherwise. Really stellar work and stellar use of the theme, 10/10, would feed the grass blood again

Reads as if someone who has a lawn locked themselves in a stark room 4x12 with two Andrew Wyeth paintings & came out 2 days older and an ounce lighter & the room isn’t stark any more & the paintings are not where they were & they don’t end now & the 6 panels of the pamphlet are the six walls of the room.

This might be my favourite comment of any Trophy content I've ever done, and that includes Jason Cordova comparing The Plantation to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Thank you!

the paintings are not where they were & they don’t end now

is stolen from Yoshitoshi ABe (cw: 60 seconds of spoilers, a reference to death, body horror, depression, self-harm, bullying, & a leach)

You can fit a lot of terror in six panels of a trifold booklet and just as much in a field of rapacious grass. Lemongrass provides a solid foundation for a Trophy Dark incursion, with striking imagery and sharp-edged details that'll entertain the heck out of a group of players while their characters are undone by their own greed.
