Tales of Promethea

Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein is one of the most impressive games I’ve reviewed in the last years. Dark Harvest is a horror roleplaying game set in an alternative early 20th century. The land formerly known as Romania is ruled by none other than Dr. Frankenstein himself. The country is now known as Promethea and it’s on the forefront of technology and research. But its borders are closed and no one outside of the country knows what really happens in Promethea. And the truth is far worse than what you might imagine…

Tales of Promethea is a collection of horror stories written by the game’s author Iain Lowson and others. I have to admit I haven’t had the time to read it yet, but if it’s as good as the short stories included in the rulebooks it’s a must-have.

The 330-paged short story anthology is available from the Amazon Kindle store and DriveThruFiction for $3.99. For more information on Dark Harvest, check out the official site.
