Slasher Flick: The Festival

Wisely did Ibn Schacabao say, that happy is the tomb where no wizard hath lain, and happy the town at night whose wizards are all ashes. For it is of old rumour that the soul of the devil-bought hastes not from his charnel clay, but fats and instructs the very worm that gnaws; till out of corruption horrid life springs, and the dull scavengers of earth wax crafty to vex it and swell monstrous to plague it. Great holes secretly are digged where earth's pores ought to suffice, and things have learnt to walk that ought to crawl.Slasher Flick is an indie RPG that models slasher horror films. When former RPPR regular Thad showed up for a visit, I decided to revisit the Derek Bishop Chronicles using Slasher Flick. At South Padre Island, a group of skeptics and college students on Spring Break will soon be thrown into a hellish nightmare when a skeptic inadvertently summons a terrifying monster! As the killer eliminates his victims, one by one, can a group of students, drug dealers, hotel employees, and bros find a way to slay the monster?  Has Derek Bishop written his last chronicle? Find out in this special one shot!

  1. Awesome. Good to see you used the game I sent you!

  2. Great game. Loved the use of scream queens and horror movie logic. I thinking of picking this asap.

    Oh and this is for Aaron –
    No one laughed when he referenced it. Don’t worry dude, we got ya.

  3. More of the Derek Bishop Chronicles, yay.

  4. This was utterly fantastic, through and through.

  5. Very cool sounding game. Seems to capture the mood better then Dread, IMHO.

  6. “Carlos Danger”?? Wut?? This was recorded THIS YEAR!!

  7. ever tried Final Girl? it does the same passing-around-the-characters slasher schtick and is even more rules-lite, keeps the pace going by mandating deaths in every scene (I think).

  8. Great listen.

  9. It’s like getting drunk, ducttaped to an office chair and then pushed down a hill in San Francisco.

    I will have you know that all of the Tribes of Tokyo games were recorded this year!

  11. But does that mean we’re up to date, then??

  12. Didn’t you know that the backlog is theoretically infinite? It occupies a non-euclidean hard drive space and can never be truly perused.

  13. I fear that were the backlog ever to reach zero this would be a signal that the stars are right. With this game clearly having been recorded in the last month I believe we should all begin to put our affairs in order.

    You fools! You assume one shots are posted in a linear order! Next, I shall post a game over a year old! Then a game recorded 2 months ago to be followed BY A GAME RECORDED IN THE FUTURE

  15. the podcast post schedule itself hath become the seed of a CoC game

  16. Ross, you already posted the future game. We recorded it next month and you posted it a year ago.

    “No! I must record the podcast” he shouted
    The podcast said “No, John. You are the podcast”
    And then Ross was a zombie.

  18. It was like watching all the 80’s movies from highschool played by my looser friends while we where drunk off our butts. Can I get a signed copy of “Your Faith is My Joke”. Just so you know I pictured the old Scooby Doo Hall way chase with the butler and russian standing in the background looking boored when you had the slasher in the hall. Great game. Thanks. Maybe you could do a game of Cthulhu with the cast of Scooby Doo for a flashback of my childhood.
    Thanks Guys.

  19. When Ross is finally brought to justice for his long laundry list of crimes I expect this game to be brought up.

    Mr. Payton, did you or did you not state, “I will no longer reward racism.”

  20. I rather enjoyed this event, Slasher Flick seems like a great and oddly lighthearted ‘palette cleanser’ for RPGs.

    I’m curious though, do you gents play most of these games because ‘why not?’ or because you are working with small time publishers as an advertisement? I’m not complaining or being accusatory, just curious how I could land a cushy job like that!

    I’ve never accepted money from publishers to run games on here. I have accepted review copies of games, although I do not always run those games. Slasher Flick was sent to us from a RPPR listener.

  22. I miss Thad so I re-listened to this, now I miss Thad more
