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.



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. This hefty, beautifully illustrated tome will contain GM and player advice for implementing and dealing with the weird. 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 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.

The support of nearly 100,000 backers has allowed us deliver imaginative, innovative tabletop RPGs that break new ground and have brought us critical and popular acclaim. Our crowdfunded games include Invisible Sun, the family-oriented No Thank You, Evil!, the Cypher System, The Darkest House, the forthcoming Stealing Stories for the Devil, Numenera, and The Strange.
