Pelgrane Press publishes character-focused and story-driven tabletop RPGs.
We are particularly interested in seeing portfolios featuring B&W horror & fantasy line art and photorealistic art from women and PoC artists.
Our GUMSHOE system enables investigative TTRPGs with a collaborative mystery-solving play structure, as exemplified by the mythos RPG Trail of Cthulhu, the high-octane spies-vs-vampires RPG Night’s Black Agents, and the upcoming swords & sorcery game Swords of the Serpentine.
Our GUMSHOE One-2-One adaptation is designed for one player and one GM.
Our DramaSystem facilitates interpersonal relationship building, which promotes affecting dramatic interactions between characters - as do our stand-alone story games anthologies, #Feminism, Seven Wonders, and Honey & Hot Wax.
We also publish 13th Age, an epic fantasy game using the familiar d20 system, which weaves characters' backgrounds and unique traits into every narrative, resulting in engaging, heroic adventures.
