"Destiny has two ways of crushing us - by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them." -

Salutations! Welcome to Corpses and Curios!

We are a Modern Horror campaign set in today’s distracted world. A world where the lifeblood of our daily benign existence betrays the septicemia which may end us all.
Utilizing a mix of the 4th and 3rd editions of the wonderfully designed GURPS system by Steve Jackson Games - we strive to provide a story-driven focus as five unique individuals are drawn together by machinations beyond their control, but directly affecting their everyday lives.
Welcome to our little shop. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite libation, tune out the rest of the world, and allow us to entertain you.

We are a horror campaign, and sometimes we find ourselves dealing with sensitive subject matter. We always try to present such material as vital to plot, and never for the simple purpose of attempting to be “edgy.” Some characters have experienced past trauma which comes into play. We do our best to offer "trigger warnings" to those who may be sensitive to certain presentations and representations of events.

Our primary focus is on story and character development. A lot of the mechanics and rules lookups are handled "off camera." So, for the purists, I offer my sincere apologies in advance.

A Great Actual Play Podcast!

A well told story with wonderful characters. Though the theme is horror, it is well balanced by humor.

Worth listening to and supporting!

NotThatDrew ,

Horror and GURPS are a great combo

This is a great show with a great cast. There are not many GURPS actual plays that manage to keep the story snappy and interesting like this group manages to.
I'm always excited for the next episode and can't wait to see what happens to the heroes.
Not only is there an amazing main story there are plenty of good side projects to listen to as well!

Superior Actual Play Podcast Supported by GURPS

Most actual play podcasts I try get turned off very quickly due to bad audio, poor role playing, and too much out-of-character banter. Corpses & Curios breaks delights with its compelling storytelling, good role playing, interesting characters, and skillful GMing. The sound effects never dominate and add appreciated detail to the scenes. As a bonus, the GM adds little moments that teach bits about the fantastic GURPS game system, which fades gracefully into the background rather than featuring prominently. Great job!
