    IC Perils of the Pumpkin King [DRYH]

    The first thought that comes to your minds is that it's cold, unnaturally so, even though you're all thigh-deep in a snowdrift - immaculate white splattered crimson with gore from a Snarling Snowman's messy devouring of a Local. You've all been trapped in the Mad City for about a week now, ever...

    [Recruitment] Don't Rest Your Head: Perils of the Pumpkin King

    It is December 25th in the Mad City. Christmas Day. But there is no jolliness to be had, no, not even for the City's twisted denizens. Santa Claws - the omnipotent Nightmare ruler of Christmas - has been deposed, his position usurped by none other than Skeleton Jack, King of Halloween! Curious...

    IC Cards and Hearts [DRYH]

    The Bizarre Bazaar, Mad City, Thirteenth Hour Within a massive covered pavilion draped with cloth dyed the hues of the setting sun is a woman with a rather metallic appearance seated on a lavender cushion in front of a large, well-appointed circular table. Streaks of shining azure cover her...

    [Recruitment] Don't Rest Your Head

    Is anyone interested in a game of Evil Hat Production's Don't Rest Your Head? I've had a fairly successful game or two on here and I really enjoy the setting. I'm looking for three players. The plot of this one takes place after my last one, Beware the Tacks Man. Mother When is dead and in her...

    IC Sixteen Wax Candles (Don't Rest Your Head)

    Wax. Wax everywhere. That's the only thought you can possibly process as you take in your surroundings. The floor, the walls, the people are just covered in the stuff. It's revolting and yet almost artistic at the same time. But as a massive bell rings and the doors to the main chamber open...

    [Interest/Recruitment] Don't Rest Your Head

    After finishing running (and successfully completing, even with the loss of a player at the end) a game of Don't Rest Your Head, I have an itch to run another one. The premise of the game would be that the Awake players are recruited by the Wax King through various reasons to accomplish a...

    IC [DRYH] Beware the Tacks Man

    With a loud thud, the last of you are thrown into the dank, grimy cell by one of Officer Tock's clockwork lieutenants. The mechanical policeman creaks as it slowly turns and slams the cell door shut, locking it with a massive gear-laced key that horribly mimics the appearance of the one sticking...

    [Interest] Don't Rest Your Head

    Anyone interested in a game of Don't Rest Your Head? It's a fun little horror game set in the Mad City with player characters known as the Awake, who have all kinds of strange and creepy Madness Talents. I'm willing to run! This game is right up my alley. Any takers?

    (Letter) is for (Madness Talent), Part II

    Since I've begun working on a game of Don't Rest Your Head, I went looking through old threads to find inspiration. Needless to say, I stumbled across the old version of this new thread, and was amazed. Insertname is brilliant, as well as the others who contributed new Madness Talents. Needless...

    [DRYH] Don't Fear Your Dreams

    I’ve been looking at the Dreamhounds of Paris book for Trail of Cthulhu and I was struck with inspiration. Don’t Rest Your Head is one of my favourite systems, fast and streamlined but with buckets of character. It’s also eminently hackable (as can be seen in this excellent thread and others...

    [DRYH] Why I love the resolution mechanism and think that I would be a fine for many games

    Hi all, you all know that DRYH is just brilliant and for my part I really like how the resolution works. Successes and dominance are great. First of all it gives you two results with one roll. You get successes and dominance, where dominance is more random then successes. This results in: yes...

    Aberrant DRYH - Don't Make Your MR-Node Explode

    (as I said before, not good with thread titles ..) Let's do Aberrant next! This is a companion piece to my Werewolf and Vampire DRYH threads. As with Vampire and Werewolf, it's not a straight conversion to the DRYH system, there are also a few of my own setting ideas in there. Key points...

    Vampire DRYH conversion - Don't Lose Your Humanity

    This is a companion piece to my Werewolf DRYH conversion thread. Key points of my DRYH conversion: SIMPLICITY - there are no attributes. No skill lists. Character generation should, in terms of systems and rules, take a couple minutes at most. During gameplay, there is one simple mechanic...

    [Werewolf DRYH Conversion] Don't let your prey rest

    (Not good with thread titles, sorry.) Hey there! I've been asked to post a little something about the system I use for Werewolf: the Forsaken. So there! The system is heavily inspired by the really neat game Don't Rest Your Head - I used DRYH as a starting point, but I extrapolated from...

    DRYH + My Little Pony: FIM = Don't Hate Your Friends

    I posted about this in the MLP Fate (but also other system brainstoming) thread, but it's gelling enough, and the temptation to actually run it is growing enough, that I thought I'd spin it off into its own thread. Here's what I wrote about it before: I also made and a rough draft of a...

    DRYH + Tron = Don't Crash Your Proc

    Or maybe "Don't Dump Your Core". I can't decide which I like better. Spinning this off from my Tron system suggestion thread, since my brainstorming in this direction is starting to get more developed. It was just a passing idea at first, not really worth a new thread, but it feels like it's...
