A downloadable RPG mini-supplement

A roach is close. It smells like almond milk, slowly cooling.
A roach is within view. It looks like a slice of cellophane, browned by the sun.
A roach is on you. Its touch feels like a shift in the grass, as you nap in the yard.
A roach is in your mouth. You bite. It tastes like a rupture. You forget everything you’ve tasted before.


In the tradition of Gygaxian democracy, we asked our REACH OF THE ROACH GOD Kickstarter campaign backers to suggest descriptions that signaled the close proximity or imminent arrival of a roach --

How they smell; what they look like; what they feel like. What they taste like.

We edited these submissions, laid them out in PDF. Here is it, for free, perhaps the most cursed TTRPG mini-supplement ever conceived.

Compiled from suggestions by:
