Lejendary Adventures: LA3 - Those Who Watch







Publisher Blurb:

"In the deeps of the southern jungles lay vast stretches of unexplored wilderness. There, forgotten kingdoms lay sprawled in all the ruin of yesterday. Such is the realm of the Entomi, an ancient folk mired in the wicked sorceries of any primitive people.

Long ago the Entomi created spirit beings of great power to guard their jungle kingdom. These beings watched over the Entomi lands and protected its people. It was a task they carried out with ruthless efficiency. By taking creatures from the jungles and twisting them, warping them into aggressive, ravening monsters they made the Entomi safe. But the cost was high. In time the Entomi fell to worshiping these creatures, casting aside their gods and driving their priests into the arms of the ever watchful guardians. So they lived for countless years, always in the shadow of those who watched them. But in time the Entomi Kingdom fell, not to war or ravers, but to plague. So they vanished from the world.

But their guardians remained. Ever watchful, hidden in the jungles overlooking the ruins of a once great and glorious civilization.

This jungle setting is easily adapted to any homebrew world or the official LA game world. They Who Watch is cut in the classic mold. With fantastic monsters, weird, otherworldly settings and wondrous lost treasures! A must have for any would be avatars."

Kult: Metropolis Sourcebook





From the web:


"Our Reality Will Be Destroyed and the Truth Revealed

Our reality is a prison - a very cleverly designed and well organized one, but a prison nevertheless. It is an illusion which has robbed us of our divine wisdom and godly powers, and which blinds us to the true reality of the abyssmal conspiracy. Only by journeying into Metropolis to confront our mistaken assumptions and master our fears, can we awake and reclaim our place as the equals of the Demiurge.

Metropolis represents what we would see if the illusion ever broke down. It is a never-ending city of chaos and destruction; a city composed of the most deplorable features of our own cities' slums and back alleys, concealing secrets far more shocking than we could ever conceive from watching the world we call our own.


The veil of deception which shrouds us is slowly coming undone. In certain areas it has already completely vanished, while in others it could momentarily crack, causing part of our world to merge into Metropolis, presenting a horrifying glimpse of the truth our senses are unable to grasp.


In this book:
  • The Cracks in the Lie: This chapter provides you with suggested situations in which the illusion is torn open. Here the Game Master find shte tools with which to dramatize such occurances, adding a touch of atmopsphere to the game.
  • The Structure of Madness: This chapter contains campaign materials which recreate Metropolis, as well as a number of incidents which the GM can easily fit into your game.
  • Lairs of Power: The dwellings of Metropolis' potentates: the palaces of the Archons and the closed citadel of the Demiurge. It aslo provides some easily adaptable situations, and brief explanations of the palaces' inherent powers and how these powers affect their surroundings and the creatures who dwell within.
  • The cogs in the Machine: Dedicated to places of particular function, or of singular importances to the Original City. It covers the Memory Banks, the Primal Sea, the Clockworks, the City of the Dead, and the Mirror Halls.
  • The Damned: The weird and dangerous creatures which inhabit the Original City. This chapter also contains descriptions of Metropolis' residents, whose multi-layered personalities cannot be touched on except in the broadest of terms.
  • Handouts: Each chapter is genoursly supplemented with excepts and illustrations, which can be copied and distributed among the players."
