Music is often an inspiration for a lot of GMs and players at the gaming table. Whether it is a character idea, adventure plot, npc, item, monster or whatever. Even my first One-Page Adventure, The Tower of Skulls, was inspired by music.
This is the first of a series called: RPG and Music Pairing.
And we are kicking it off with a fresh slice of Slashers & Victims Light with a pint of Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats.
Slashers & Victims Light is a 1970s/80s slasher horror movie hack of Swords & Wizardry Light. Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats is a Psychedelic "Psycho Rock/Crime Wave" band. This is probably the best pairing you will find for a slasher/horror RPG! Now, to be specific here I want to highlight the album, The Night Creeper* by Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. When you get your gaming group together you will want to get your copy of The Night Creeper out and Patrick Bateman'splain why this album incorporates everything about Slashers & Victims Light. Before you begin, press play, and then discuss the rules of the game and begin character creation.
Track 1: Waiting for Blood "There's a man who's just been waiting here all night long as he watches you he's smiling there all alone. He needs something better but he knows you're on your own."
Track 2: Murder Nights "I don't want to know your name, I'll cut your throat all the same."
Track 6: Melody Lane "I saw her dance when she first hit the scene. Creep joint romancing with amphetamines but tramps like me stay in shadows unseen. I want her."
Track 7: The Night Creeper "Lock up your windows and bolt up your doors. Heed all the warnings he's coming for more. Innocent eyes are not what they seem. Strangers are dangerous, they'll hide all your screams."
Track 8: Inside "Am I evil? You know I am. Will I deceive you? You know I can."
So do yourself a favor and pick up your copy of Slashers & Victims Light and The Night Creeper by Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats.
