Rats in the Walls is a roleplaying game of cosmic horror, inspired by the writings of H.P Lovecraft (but it doesn't use HPL's Mythos).
The game system is inspired by classics like Advanced Fighting Fantasy, Traveller and more recent titles like Maze Rats or Into the Odd. It uses 2D6 and only the players roll the dice so the GM can focus on the players' choices.
The system is aimed at long-term play but works very well with one-shots as well. The default setting are the roaring 20's but an appendix allows you to create medieval characters. The book is also full of advice for the GM to help him run a game of cosmic horror.
So grab a character sheet, 2D6, pick a profession and a reputation and go fight the Old Ones or die screaming.
