Heroic Land-Dwellers!

Selected Option:

We humans are a resilient bunch. We’ve endured plagues, wars, famines…and any other attacks that seem to visit us on the backs of biblical horses. We always fight. We always overcome. We always resist the tide.

Sometimes that tide carries a different array of dangers, of course. Sometimes those horsemen of the apocalypse are riding seahorses, and instead of firing bullets or spreading the flu, they’re shooting lasers and hypnotizing us with a hallucinogenic gas. In these trying times, we need humans who can defend our planet, resist the intents of foul aquatic monsters, and stand up for each other.

We need heroic land-dwellers.

Heroic Land-Dwellers! is a collection of playable characters for They Came from Beneath the Sea!, a roleplaying game of drama, science fiction, and farce in which you play the only humans capable of driving back the watery threats seeking to invade, destroy, or enslave humanity.

This book is for use with the They Came from Beneath the Sea! tabletop roleplaying game. They Came from Beneath the Sea! uses the Storypath System, provided in full in the core rulebook available separately. 

Heroic Land-Dwellers! includes:

  • Sixteen playable characters, each with biographies, stats, Quips, and artwork to help you immediately involve them in a story as protagonists, supporting characters, or villains!
  • Fiction by Larry Blamire, to set the action-packed and sometimes nonsensical tone of science fiction B-movies and games such as this one!

The main rule book makes it clear that a skill can only be associated with one path, but the characters in this book don't follow the rules on skill association. Is there a reason why?

We experimented with the idea of characters specialising by adding the same Skill to multiple Paths. We've then pursued that into further They Came Froms.

Thanks, so in creating a new character do you allow a player to use the same skill in multiple paths now or do you just keep it one skill to a path. And if this a rule change is there an errata, changes, clarification sheet of them for They came from Beneath the Sea.

We allow players to add the same Skill to multiple Paths, but the base game of Beneath the Sea! remains as is. The errata period for this book closed a good while back.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
