You Won't Believe It: More about Pandemonium

Enter the world of tabloid news: a place where aliens walk among us, conspiracies are around every corner, and Elvis works in a fast food restaurant. Pandemonium is a humorous RPG set in Tabloid World, an alternate Earth where all of the tabloid headlines are true.

In Pandemonium, the characters are Paranormal Investigators who research unusual phenomena for the Weekly Weird News. Use the EZ Rules for streamlined play with pre-generated characters, or the Very Complicated Rules for custom characters and crunchier rules.

Pandemonium and Stranger Than Truth! are out of print.
