Dead Sea Murder

A Terra Incognita Adventure by Amanda Dickerson from Rogue Publishing.

In 1947 the world was stunned by the discovery of ancient scrolls hidden in caves not far from where the city of Qumran once thrived. These documents, some written as early as 250 B.C., were hailed as one of the most important archæological discoveries of the twentieth century. The Dead Sea Scrolls, as they were soon to be called, reportedly hadn't been seen by human eyes for two thousand years.The members of the National Archaeological, Geographic, and Submarine Society know better.

The Dead Sea Murder is an exciting murder mystery set in and around Jerusalem of the 1930s. The adventure can be customized to suit GM and player taste — from cozy drawing-room detection to the opening salvos of Armageddon.

Alas, the Dead Sea Murder tome is currently unavailable. We hope to locate it and make it available again soon.

NAGS Society Worldbook

Precursor to Terra Incognita.

The NAGS Society Worldbbook was my original effort at amateur game design. A free, 100 page RPG! Updated slightly on May 1, 2002 to eradicate some typos. Here is the back blurb:

    Cutting–edge Technology and tea at four…

    Welcome to the world of NAGS — the National Archæological Geological and Submarine Society.

    Join the Nags — a group of adventurer–scientists whose exploits were never recorded in the annals of cinematic heroes, real explorers of the Nineteenth and early Twentieth centuries, pulp adventure stories of the 1930’s, and supernatural–investigative fiction and games set in the 1920’s.

    Armed with extensive training, unpredictable technology, and unimpeachable discretion, Nags travel to the Four Corners of the globe — exploring, uncovering, and clarifying information — all in the name of the ever–increasing store of accurate knowledge and the record of human possibilities.

    Based on c.FUDGE (a customized version of Steffan O’Sullivan’s FUDGE), the NAGS SOCIETY WORLDBOOK provides everything you need to begin adventuring in the World of NAGS.

Reviews of Terra Incognita

Terra Incognita has been reviewed in several online publications.

The kind folks at Burning Void have posted an extremely thorough, and I would say flattering, review of Terra Incognita. The Burning Void site itself contains scads of information for roleplayers, including players, GMs, and those folks who like to write games. There is an email ’zine entitled Twilight Time and more. Have a look!
