Pacesetter Horror Rises from the Grave!

Goblinoid Games presents CRYPTWORLD, the new official Pacesetter horror RPG! Other than the zombie survival genre horror rpg ROTWORLD, there has not been a Pacesetter horror game in print since the 1980s. CRYPTWORLD scratches and crawls forth from the grave as the direct Pacesetter horror brand successor!

CRYPTWORLD is a Pacesetter System horror game in which you play an investigator of the unexplained. Any kind of horror is possible, from hunting classic monsters to fighting the secret manipulations of interdimensional aliens, and much more! Be an independent hunter of the horrors in the world, or be a member of one of the several organizations provided, each with different motivations.

CRYPTWORLD handles many subgenres of horror. It is a complete presentation of horror rules, game advice, and creatures from different horror subgenres so that you can play any kind of horror game you prefer. Your characters can be members of one of the several example organizations that investigate the unexplained, rather than be limited to only one organization. This also means that there is no specific assumed game setting.

Coming late September!

    This is fantastic news! As much as I enjoyed what Mayfair did with CHILL, it’s great to see a new incaranation of horror game for the classic Pacesetter system. I cannot wait to see this!

      Hi Glen, it will be available via POD, so no preorders necessary. I’ll post where to buy when the time comes, within the next two weeks.

    As a longtime gamer and a fan of simple percentile systems who never got to explore the original Chill game by Pacesetter, this is exciting news. I look forward to purchasing a copy of this game (will be available via, yes?)
