“The beating Heart of The Red City spreads its veins and arteries through the alleys, bringing bloodthirsty monsters to life... You are a knife to the open wound, purging the city's poison. You are the only cure for this evil.”

DAMNATUS: CARDIOREXIS is a rogue-like dungeon-crawling focused style mini-RPG where youy play as a squad of monster-slaying hunters. 

It can be played with or without a GM. Also, has a rule variant that allows for a more free-form rules-lite playing style.

Hi there! Enjoying the reading a lot. Some pointers:
-'If The Red City has not been saved by the end of the Twelfth Expedition, it permanently succumbs' How can we do that if there 13 edifications to be purged?
-If you tweak the dice results a little, I guess you could call it Forged in the Dark.

If this get's more attention, please make the Abyss tables bigger! please!

Hi! Sorry for the late response. You CAN'T save all Edifications. You can slay The Heart before the 13th, if you choose to save only the ones you need to. You need to purge (3) Edifications to open The Gate, then go for The Foundation Plaza.

When you say "make bigger", you mean the size of the font or to make more options?

No problem!
Hmm, I see. I must've misread the rules ^^'

I mean tables with more options! IThe city itself is big enough but the GM tables could give more options

Of course! But right now I don't know what to add. I'll think about it.
