    [DRYH] Is there a way to reverse the exhaustion death-spiral?

    Now, I like the way exhaution works in DRYH: The more you push yourself, the more you can do, but the more you risk is spiralling out of your control. For the core game, and some of the hacks I've seen for it, it works brilliantly. However, it seems an odd fit for certain other possible hacks...

    Don't Rest Your Pyramid Head

    I'm sure somebody else has already done this, but just in case: Has anyone else noticed how easy it is to turn DRYH into Silent Hill? You just have to strip away a few parts and hey presto, restless dreams and seeing towns and such. 1. Get rid of insomnia/sleep. I know this is like removing...

    [DRYH]Don't Lose Your Mind, Expanded Edition

    I loved the Don't Lose your mind Supplement for Don't Rest Your Head, but I was sad when it finally ended, I was hungry for more, so I thought I'd start a fan made expansion here on the forum. Here is my example of a new madness talent in the style of DLYM. M Is for monster...

    [DRYH] Hacking for dark Baroque fantasy

    The setting is Pradova: a dark, sprawling metropolis, vaguely Baroque or Renaissance in style, governed by a sinister prince, located somewhere far out in the faerie realm, where reality becomes less and less tangible the further you go from the city. There are rumors about a coming war against...

    [DRYH] Musical Influences

    So, I'm running a Don't Rest Your Head game on Monday nights (alternating with a Changeling: The Lost game) and I'm one of those GMs that lives in his own peculiar headspace filled with music. That is, I use music heavily during my games, I tend to think of various characters as having their own...

    [DRYH] How does it play?

    So far, I've only run it via a PbP forum, which is suboptimal for all the back-and-forth discussing and interpreting that goes on. (I sometimes feel it's a bit like an I Ching reading; you throw out the dice and they can mean whatever you want them to mean.) I'm planning on running a test...

    [Interest] DRYH- Don't Rest Your Head

    (If I did this wrong, please let me know. I'm new to this website) Hey, I'm not really sure how to make this post, but I'm interested in finding a basic, non-modified game of DRYH, as it's the only game that I actually have the book for right now.

    DRYH hacks

    People keep hacking Don't Rest Your Head to change the focus of it. For instance there's Bailywolf's "Can't Best Your Dad," found here: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=412782 Post your -- or someone else's -- DRYH hack. I'm curious to see what people have done with it.

    [DRYH Viedo] Yeah, it's pretty much like this.

    Right Here. Lets do one of those 'post a video that's like the game' threads, but instead of something easy like Exalted (where you can post Jet Li being a friggin badass, and totally win), lets do it for Don't Lose Your Mind. Creepy, surreal, with a burst of action, a hint of people losing...

    [DRYH] Madness Dice and Madness Talents

    Hi, after reading a bit the game and Don't Loose Your Mind I got a bit confused about Maddness Dice and Madness Talents. You can always use Madness Dice to do something awesome, but still just mundane action even if you are doing them at a superhuman power level. So with Madness Talents you...
