Enter a world created from the unholy fusion of gas-lit Victorian streets, modern urban legends, and eldritch blasphemies, all stirred together in a cauldron spawned from the most disturbed imaginings of Tim Burton and the Brothers Grimm. This is a bare bones game world and rules set designed to allow you to create miniature worlds of claustrophobic horror.
-- Review by Travis Lee
In early 2003, Philip Reed put together vs. Monsters, a 20-page roleplaying game created in twenty-four hours. The game, considered a failure by Reed, quickly attracted a loyal following and, after much discussion and contemplation, Reed made the decision to create an expanded, improved edition of the game.
The system has been revised and expanded and this edition includes more options for characters, new monsters, a look at the world of vs. Monsters, and more . . . all keeping the same look and feel of the original release.
"Oh, my god, this is pretty. Art by Edmund Dulac is dropped in appropriately and blended with the text and borders. Some white on black text, some black on white, every page is a treat. (6/5) (Yes, I know I should only put 5, but damn this is pretty for a 24-hour game."

We hope you enjoy vs. Monsters Deluxe Edition.
