As an amazing Halloween treat, Evil Hat Productions has offered a FREE preview chapter of the upcoming Dresden Files RPG expansion, The Paranet Papers.

Stand together against the darkness…

In Jim Butcher’s bestselling Dresden Files books, the forces of good bond together into an organization called the Paranet in a desperate attempt to protect each other in the equally desperate war against big baddies like the Red Court and the Denarians.

In 2015, you will bring the Paranet to your Dresden Files RPG game with the Paranet Papers supplement. Travel to locations in crisis like Las Vegas and South America to fight evil. Team up with characters from Turn Coat and Changes to fight evil. Join up with other Paranetters to… well, you get the picture.

The Paranet Papers. Because playing with wizards wasn’t dangerous enough already.

In this early preview, they’re giving you the entire Las Vegas chapter, absolutely free. Call it a Paranet Paper, if you will. And enjoy! We’ll see you, again, in 2015.

Harry Dresden, a Chicago private investigator and wizard, heads to a small, isolated Missouri town terrorized by Nevernever monsters. The singularly unfortunate Talbot family has suffered a curse that has decimated their number for generations, and only our hero can save them… that is, if he can survive hostile lawmen, the dark secrets of townsfolk, an ancient guardian spirit, and two deadly carnivores! Can Dresden cleanse the Talbot bloodline of its curse without a blood sacrifice of his own?
