Beast: The Primordial, Mummy: The Curse, Sales

Now available as advance PDF from DriveThruRPG, Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes for Beast: The Primordial! Conquering Heroes is the first Night Horrors book in seven years, since January 2010’s Night Horrors: The Unbidden! We’re delighted to bring this series back for the first time for the 2nd Edition Chronicles of Darkness.

Sure, you can do what you want, feed from the locals, and go back to hiding in your lair when you’re done. 

You may think you’re safe there, it sure feels safe. 

But, you aren’t the only thing connected to the Primordial Dream, and no lair is safe from what lurks beyond. 

Don’t fool yourself.

— Naomi Walker, Ugalla

Now available in print from DriveThruFiction: Dawn of Heresies for Mummy: The Curse.

Rawhead and bloody bones

Steals naughty children from their homes,

Takes them to his dirty den

And they are never seen again. 

So says the nursery rhyme that gives birth to Rawhead, the most fearsome entity to imperil the living since the infamous Roller. Once an obedient mummy by name of Benefre, a desperate bid by his cult fails in tragic fashion, and in so doing, sends him to the Devourerís waiting, corruptive maw. What remains of Benefreís ambitious soul rises again, impure and unholy, set to the execution of a scheme so baleful, it constitutes a heresy even among his own misbegotten kind.

All that stands between Rawhead and his terrible aim are a lone mummy, Kemsiyet, and what little remains of her cult following its destruction at Rawhead’s hands. Declan, her prized security aide, and Fiona, an Irish researcher only just recently inducted into the cult and its blood-soaked world, must fight both the odds and the clock in order to prevent a calamity the likes of which the world hasnít seen since the days of the mummies’ creation.

    Ok I forget: is Conquering Heroes going to be sent at a discount to backers of BtP or do we need to get the PDF the normal way?

    Just so I don’t feel silly and buy the regular one at full price, only to have a link to the discounted PDF emailed to me later.

      It’s not a Beast KS project. You’re safe to buy it. 🙂

    What happened to the old Night Horrors cover? I feel like the old ones are far better.

      I’m starting to pick up on a certain style to the CofD covers, which I understand especially as far as a trying to make it it’s own brand. Frankly though I miss the color splash on the side with the logo across it. It might seem silly, but to me without it whenever I look at the cover images I always feel like its the cover to a paperback or soft cover book. Just promise to keep the skulls on the binding 😀

      I am not interested in Beast, but I must say that I think the cover looks pretty damn good!

    The full-size preview for Conquering Heroes doesn’t work. I’ve tried both Safari and Firefox.

      I don’t like the cover either. It reminds me too much of the varuous covers from In Nomine (from SJG)… and yes, that comment show my age!
