• The Gardener
When a gang of old college friends get together for a reunion at a sprawling mansion, they quickly find that they are not alone. Someone -- or something -- is watching them... waiting for the opportunity to kill them. Can they survive the night without losing their heads?
A new product has been added to the bonus section of the "Bundle of Tentacles +2" package! "The Secret of the Dead Man's Satchel" is an adventure for Macabre Tales, written by Daniel Robichaud.
The protagonist of the tale receives a mysterious package in the mail -- a satchel containing papers with strange encoded text. That's when his life begins to spiral out of control. Who sent the package? What does the coded text mean? What vile and sinister forces are at play? Will the character be able to get to the bottom of the situation before he is consumed in darkness?

Why has this relentless psycho descended upon the camp? How can he be stopped?

The amazing Brent Sprecher delivers the third and final fake trading card for our upcoming Retrostar roleplaying game.
For some insight on the character's gargantuan head, check out this quote from Brent: "The oversized head is supposed to reference how actors would wear giant 'helmets' as aliens on many shows. The 'actor' looks out the mouth and the neck folds hide the seam or zipper."
Fun stuff that really captures the feel of the 1970s-era sci-fi TV shows!
