Demon Dog is a role-playing game set in a medieval history that never was. You play "Dogs", revenants that were snatched from purgatory by Demon Barons, seeking redemption and a pint. You're not a hero now and you weren't one before you lived, but you're possibly making things better, or worse, or at the very least less boring.
I must admit, Demon Dog looks interesting. I'm not sure if it would work well as an ongoing campaign, but Demon Dog looks like a fun change of pace for a one-shot or convention play.
Demon Dog is usually 17.50 in PDF, but until tomorrow morning, it is on sale in PDF for 5.95.
This book here, well, the PDF of it as that's what's here on DTRPG, its got Nightfall Games' splatterpunk style and dark humour, but they've cranked it up to 12 cause this here game is an ode to punk and the OSR revival. An' just cause we use words like "ode" an' shite, don't mean we didn't make an awesome game. Demon Dog is an irreverent game set in an irreverent age. It is MÖRK BORG, punk-style.

Demon Dog is based on MÖRK BORG, a fantastic lightweight and brutal system that gets out of the way as much as it can, allowing you to get your havoc on without getting bogged down with complicated tables and stuff. MÖRK BORG is a rules-lite doom metal album of a game in the OSR genre and Demon Dog takes the same thesis and applies it to the Punk aesthetic.
While iinspired by MÖRK BORG and is compatible with it, Demon Dog is a stand-alone product. You can smash together the ideas in both books or pull ideas from one into the other!
