Holler: An Appalachian Apocalypse

Holler   is a roleplaying game of adventure, rebellion, fairy tale, and gothic horror in  Appalachia .

In  Holler , the mysterious " Big Boys " own the mines, mills, and logging operations. They rule over every aspect of their workers' lives--subjecting them to  extraordinary dangers  on the job and  crushing oppression  outside of it.

The  Big Boys  have transformed the land of the  Holler --rivers bubble with strange chemicals, strip-mined mountains crumble into valleys, and the air is choked with a toxic fog known as the  Blight .

The flora and fauna of the  Holler  grow more monstrous by the day.  Demons  of every description lurk in the forests. Mutant  cryptids  haunt villages with their strange cries and appetites. Vengeful  haints  leer from abandoned shacks and lonely cliffs.

No one is coming to save the people of  Holler . They've got to take matters into their  own hard-worked hands . It'll take miners, granny women, gougers, moonshiners, bluegrass pickers, and holy rollers willing to fight and die to protect their culture, customs, and families. Folks who have the bravery to stare straight into the abyss and spit in its eye.

The goal of the resistance is to build a  coalition , to bring together diverse factions--humble workers, roustabouts, mountain men, dirt track racers, cultists, and even strange creatures of myth and legend to raze the works of the  Big Boys  and drive them from the  Holler  forever.

Holler   draws deeply on  Appalachian  history, mythic folklore, and culture to create a dark fantasy world of apocalypse and vengeance set in gothic locales such as Corn Cob Gap, Cussfoot Fens, Ghost Ridge Mountains, Great Craggy Mountains, Faefall, Hogback Hills, Piney Dirge Plateau, Sootstone Mountains, and the Stygian Mountains.

It contains new  Edges & Hindrances , new  Arcane Backgrounds , rules for the ever-present  Blight , a passel of strange critters including the  Mothman , the  Sheepsquatch , and the nefarious  Big Boys themselves , dozens of locations such as Mount Everlasting, Devil's Den, and Fairy Flats, a fully-fleshed out  Adventure Generator , AND a wild ride of a  Plot Point Campaign  called  Blasted Beauty
