Dr. Herbert has been secretly working for a secret society known as “The Keepers”. The Keepers, a cult dedicated to protecting the world from all kinds of harm, and evil, have worked to keep some of the greatest supernatural secrets in the world alive. With Dr. West’s help and his re-animation serum, they have been able to preserve some of the greatest creatures of supernatural and evil ever known to man. These creatures, thought by many to be simply myths or legends, have been preserved, awaiting the opportunity to awaken once again, but this time for the good of the world.
That time has come. A strange alien force has begun a secret invasion near a small town in Nebraska. Strange goings-on, unusual power fluctuations, and missing people have sparked the Keepers to activate their secret weapons ….
Welcome to …
Slashers Vs is a tongue-in-cheek game in which you play your favorite character from the slasher movies of the 80s. The game uses Lester Smith’s D6xD6 rules, which are available for your perusal at https://d6xd6.com/
The system is simple and uses just 2D6.
ABOUT OUR GAME
First, thanks for playing! This is really a bit of an experiment for me. We’ll be playing via a video conference platform. My goal, besides playing and have some fun during this quarantine, is to test out using this to play virtually. Having tried a couple of the other platforms, I simply don’t have the energy or bandwidth to learn something so complex right now. But I am a tech guy. So we’ll play with FreeConferenceCall a platform I’m familiar with.
I’ve run this game at several cons and it’s a lot of fun. This scenario is new so we’ll be making it up as we go! We will be doing a bunch of role-playing, with minimal rules (which is why D6xD6 works so well).
CHOOSE A CHARACTER
Choose your character from the pre-generated Slashers. Dr. Herbert will do the rest!

SOME FINAL ADVICE
- Don’t worry about learning the rules! We’ll work through it.
- Connect to Free Conference Call a few minutes early to work out any technical glitches.
- A headset helps but isn’t necessary.
- We’ll be playing with paper and pencils, so have a couple of D6 handy. Print your sheet if you want. No online roller here.
