About

Dread Tower is a repository for one-shot role playing games that can be played in a single evening. These are high-production value RPG adventures complete with a game master guide, sound effects packs and custom character sheets. All of these games are played using an exciting role playing game system that uses no dice and no numbers called Dread.

Dread makes use of The Tower – a Jenga tower. In this game player actions are taken by pulling blocks from the tower – when the tower falls that means the end for that player character. It’s a system that delivers a roller coaster of thrills and quiet moments to lull you into a false sense of security. It often results in multiple players dying in service of telling a great horror story.

I’m not associated with the creators of Dread – I just really like the game system they’ve created. Our scenario Magpie does however feature as one the scenarios in the Italian version of Dread. Magpie was published as Sotta la Torre, which in turn translates to “Under The Tower,” keeping with the naming convention of the other three scenarios. You can read a sample of the Italian version of Dread here.

The Dread system was created by The Impossible Dream.
