A Game of Disco and Cosmic Horror! It's 1979 and you're spending the summer working in Roseville Beach, the queerest little town on Rose Island. You might have come here looking for an escape, some fun, a little extra money, or even love, but now people are seeing phantasms, strange animals—and stranger old gods—wander the woods, mysterious monoliths appear randomly, and that strange music is coming from somewhere.

R. Rook Kickstarted Moonlight on Roseville Beach in November 2021. Print copies are available for online order from Spear Witch, The Twenty Sided Store, Ratti Incanti, Plus One EXP, Exalted Funeral, and Indie Press Revolution, or in retail stores including Brooklyn's Twenty Sided Store, Salt Lake's Under the UmbrellaGabi's Olympic Cards and Comics in Lacey, WA, and Labyrinth Games & Puzzles in Washington, DC.

What People Are Saying

The pulpy goodness in Moonlight on Roseville Beach is a satisfying blend of familiar themes and genres that have been mixed together in such a way that feels absolutely unique. Between the occult mysteries, the vibrant queer community setting, and intense nostalgia, I can see this becoming many people's comfort game. It somehow manages to evoke all those guilty pleasure feelings of reaching for a vintage pulp story while also taking full advantage of contemporary knowledge of queer identities and cultures to create a thoughtfully inclusive experience.

Moonlight on Roseville Beach is full of wonders. Its queer pulp aesthetic and its minimalist, collaborative system offer new and veteran gamers alike a chance to explore Rose Island's bohemian community and many secrets. I never realized that the confluence of weird fiction and queer pulp could be so engaging, whether for an evening or an extended sequence of mysteries, but Richard Ruane and his creative team have charmed me. Let those who can heed its call pack your bags—Roseville Beach awaits!

Probably the RPG with the best art I've seen this year, at least! Also the RPG with the best advice on romance as plot I've ever seen, period.
