Vesper Linder Core Rules

Vesper Linder Game Introduction

This game is wild. And unlike anything you've ever played.

Meaning that aside from the redacted content available as a cheap and easy fill in supplement--it is literally a raw world published without regard to offending people, or even selling the game itself.

If you are part of the politically correct faintness of heart so in vogue today, be warned: this is not for you; it is not for your kind.

Far from smuggling a conservative point of view either, the game I have invented is not a story originating from this planet at all.

Blackstar Cat

The Blackstar Cats are enchanted creatures who roam in homes and shops with a dark luminescent star right on their forehead that can cast dark magic. Their shadows can trap others if too much time is spent standing in them.


The wailing of a woman who died on bad terms with the world. Her echoey screams are the sadness of her previous life. Hear it too much, and be drawn down with it.

Wick n' Wind

Sentient candles that tend to inhabit old castles and some kinds of dungeons. When blown out, inhaling the smoke will put the soul of the candle into whom ever took it in.

Vesper Linder

Vesper Linder is a role playing game consisting of its own world, but able to be played in Dungeons & Dragons or Palladium books universes. It has rules for both game systems as well as its own rules.

You are welcome to play in whichever system you feel most comfortable. The VL system is more descriptive and comprehensive, and a bit more complex than D&D or Palladium in a sense, yet simpler in that a lot of the mechanisms of play are more direct and often more straightforward. It is up to you, there are stats and rules for all three systems, right here.

Shake Hands

Shake Hands are undead remnants of woodland skeletons that awaken upon passersby in the path it shoulders. They remain in the spot (always right on the side of a path in the woods) the original creature died in, and are confined to it, though those they encounter don't necessarily know this. Their distinguishing characteristic seems to be a trademark skeletal hand of whatever creature it was, outstretched, jutting into the path as if to shake yours. The outstretched hand is no doubt an invitation of some kind.

Diamond Dogs

Dogs that used by rogues and thieves for smuggling. Conversely, they are used by guards and Cambian police for sniffing them out.

The Many Fabulous Members of the Marquinette Ensemble

Adventure involving a musical troop of Marquin slaves who come across plans for the assassination of the King of Linderen. What the PCs don't know is that this is a plot to usher in the new Emperor, and the new age of Emperors, and overthrow the rule of Kings.

Adventure begins with PCs encountering an Edna fortune telling of a mysterious event in a note discovered in an old book. "The Emperor is Dead," it reads.

The content of the note is from the future, as slipped by the Edna, Quinti, from a nearby plane shift.


Linderian Day Cycle

In the time frame native to any PC beginning in the VL world, there are four suns which rise and fall every other day, together. The largest sun, Vondus, rises as a single sun on those days opposite to the other three: Dina, and Xiolix and X2.
