In the Light of a Ghost Star is an OSR LSD tab for your table. It’s weird, it’s fun, and it’ll last a few hours. And like acid, it’s cheap.
This art-punk RPG harkens back to mini-comics and zines of the 80s and 90s – small and dense and DIY to the core. The entire game, which features a player’s guide and game master’s guide, fits on two sheets of paper, marked to fold into three-panel brochures. I can’t help but think this is a piss-take on bloated multi-volume games. If D&D 5e is Emerson, Lake and Palmer, then The Mutants of Ixx is Stiff Little Fingers.
This RPG blends elements from the Black Hack, the White Hack and a dozen other influences from Into the Odd to 5e to create stimulating chaos.
