Concept: “Players acquire hunting seals which allow them to hunt monstrosities too putrid for the average hero.”

This entry was sponsored by DW Dagon as part of the Ex Libris RPG crowdfunding campaign.
"‘YOU REPUGNANT HUNTERS’ has rules and some sticky flavor for running a dark/metal fantasy campaign where players acquire hunting seals which allow them to hunt monstrosities too putrid for the average hero. Hunters undergo a ritual to get a Hunting Insignia which will determine their style of hunting and type of prey. Hunting down and ceremonially eviscerating unique prey will lead to appeasing a Hunting Insignia, and gaining occult powers and gross-yet-handy items."
