There are the cities and villages. Then there's the Wastes. Beyond. Where the witches and wizards hide. Kings and Queens lead armies of flying war machines against each other, bombing countrysides into ashy echoes. Soldiers with rifles and bayonets guide tanks down village streets. This is the backdrop for the world, where Spellcasters hone their craft, probe the Wastes, and try to make a difference before the Corruption turns them into monsters. 

Casting Spells

Magic is always a bargain. When casting a spell, a magic user declares the intent of the spell and what they hope to accomplish with it. After that, the table talks about how much Corruption should be gained from a spell of that power, magnitude and reach. Then the bargaining begins. The spellcaster can make counter offers, give up Insight, take on Toxicity, or offer up other things in order to get a good bargain and cast their spell. After the spell is cast, it is lost forever.

What Spells?

Magic cannot be tied down by single list of spells. When a Spellcaster first takes their oath, they choose their spell source and use it to create their own spells. This can be any text, image, or music from the real world. By spending Insight, a Spellcaster can probe their spell source to produce more spells. 

Literature, Graphic Novels, Music, Poetry, Photography, Paintings


Whenever a mage reacts to a risky situation in which the outcome is not made clear, they roll a d20 attempting to get under their Save. Failure results in Harm. 


The book itself is just under 70 page and is filled with tools and thoughts needed to run this game. Random tables, NPC creation, Potions, Magical Features, Monstrous Traits, How to Run a Shop, and Petitioning to an Ancient Being (me). 

Product contains a PDF and 70 page A5 Softcover. Also, check out the soundtrack on Spotify.

SoulMuppet uses shipping partners in the UK and USA to provide shipping that's versatile and cost effective. We've focused on working with indie people within the games industry who understand our products, and providing shipping that lets as many customers as possible pay customs fees and duties upfront to avoid hassles at the border.

Our US shipping operation is a single person working part-time and our UK operation is part of a shared service with other games companies. Both are small and are businesses we hope we can help grow alongside us. This means we absolutely cannot ship and process items like a giant online business with multiple fulfilment centres, and nor do we aspire to. We're focused on paying the people we work with a fair wage and treating them as people.

United Kingdom Delivery

We send UK packages 1st class untracked, although larger and heavier packages may be sent tracked. The rates we charge on the store are for untracked. Typically this means a 2-4 day turnaround from you ordering your books to delivery. This is subject to delays related to Royal Mail services such as strikes or seasonal volumes. On occasion, large volumes of Kickstarter fulfilment at our warehouse can delay store orders.

United States Delivery

We send US orders via USPS media mail where possible. Turnaround times in our US warehouse vary significantly as it is a shared service that does a lot of Kickstarter fulfilment. Most orders will be processed within 48 hours, but processing can take up to 7 working days.

Most orders are sent via USPS media mail, but where items are not suitable for media mail we'll choose the most appropriate service for the order based on its contents.

EU Delivery

We send EU packages tracked and where available via services that include duty paid in advance. This is reflected in what you pay on the store. For Kickstarter fulfilment products, this relies upon you picking the correct country variant and paying the correct amount. All our packages are sent with duty paid, either as books or at standard rate for non-books items. We are not able to take responsibility for decisions made by customs agencies in destination countries if they decide additional charges are needed.

Duty paid in advance services have a limit of £200. If your order goes over this value you will be responsible for dealing with the cost of duties and customs on arrival.

Rest of World Delivery

We set up shipping rates for countries not covered above on an individual basis. If you find the store shows everything as out of stock or you are unable to complete checkout because of your address, please contact us and we'll investigate options for setting up shipping to your country.

We send orders to countries not covered above using tracked services that are the most reliable available to us. This is often expensive, but costs less then resending packages multiple times.
