Roleplaying games give us a chance to explore, discover, imagine, create, and face challenges. Our games shine brightest when they’re vivid, unique, and a little bit mind-bending.

So how do you make another room full of orcs, another space station full of aliens, or another dark cult really special? How do you make every game session truly new and memorable—a moment of real discovery and imagination?

You make it weird.



Launching on September 6th, The Weird is a hefty, beautifully illustrated tome of GM and player advice for implementing and dealing with the weird.



The Weird will help you make NPCs, creatures, places, magic items, gear, spells and abilities, names, appearances, backgrounds, plots, structures, vehicles—and yes, even player characters—more interesting, no matter the setting or system.


It will be filled with literally thousands of weird ideas to pick from or roll randomly. It’s not just random strange ideas, though: it’ll also be packed with advice on how these weird inspirations might affect your game.


The weirdness is organized by type and degree (from “interesting” to “gonzo” and everything in between), so you can make a shield a bit more interesting or the ghost you wanted to put in the next adventure totally surreal. And that’s just for starters.



Keep gaming weird. Get The Weird!



Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, Monte Cook Games established itself as a pioneer in crowdfunding and tabletop RPGs with the Kickstarter campaign for the Numenera RPG - which smashed crowdfunding records at the time - in 2012.

MCG has successfully funded over 20 crowdfunding campaigns, most recently with the Old Gods of Appalachia RPG raising over $2 million.
