What’s Playing

In the Netherworld, television and movies are largely merged. Broadcasts are often public in outdoor or underwater theaters, available later on VHS. Recent releases include: Netherworld’s Finest Diners: Atticus Q. Redghost, villain, takes a tour around the Netherworld, profiling diners in the sea, in haunted caves, and even in a lava tube. Waffles are a […]

Mistakes in Death

The witch had died at a ripe old age, leaving behind a tremendous library and little else. She had lived a long, contended life, and in death, was destined too… “…oh… dear…” the necromancer said, turning around.

Thieves in the Night

The Purple Paw Thievery is a loosely organized association of magical rabbits that steal. One might desire a noun to complete the thought — steal shoes, steal carrots, steal money — but in reality, the Paws will steal literally anything they can.

The Enemy’s Medicine

The royal guard inspected the presented seal, verified its authenticity from the Potion Maker’s Authority, and said, “His majesty thanks you for your service and wishes you to camp here, Master Redghost.” The villain grumbled for a moment but conceded. So much for spying on the castle’s layout.

Forgotten Places

The Netherworld is infinitely large and, because time flows unevenly, often looping around, it is infinitely odd.
Read More

Neighborhood Gardens

Gardens are very common in the Netherworld, nearly every home has at least one. Sometimes they are lovingly tended and manicured, other times they are left to the elements and wild chance. There is a place for both — the kitchen. Monsters and ghosts and witches can (and do) eat nearly anything prepared with love […]

Geotours

The massive globe of water rose from the sea and bobbed up and down — a bubble of water, floating on water, held together by magic and swaying with the wind and riding the waves like a globe-shaped boat.

Zelda K. Arcadia

A swamp witch, Zelda is most at home in muck and dirt. She has a casual, easygoing nature with a focus on napping as often as possible. Zelda sleeps in trees, fields, the gardens of friends — and sometimes, to her wife’s amusement — at home in a comfortable bed.

Netherworld

The Netherworld is infinitely large, rich with magic, and home to countless monsters, ghosts, witches, and sea creatures. Given its size and continual shifting, no one has ever successfully mapped the entire world. Realms stay generally together but shift both in relation to each other and geographically internally. Travel is largely navigated via landmarks and […]

Atticus Q. Redghost

An Introduction to the Netherworld

All Evil Supply Co. stories are set in the Netherworld, a magic rich and infinitely sprawling dimension. With a wealth of readily available resources, conflict is minimal and adventure is high.

Lunar Phenomena

There is only one moon in the Netherworld, but the amount of magic saturating the infinite landscape allows a variety of unusual and logic-defying phenomena. Forests where the seasons do not change such as Autumn’s Lost Wood, and the windswept planes where night reigns eternal like The Hallow’s Gloom, depend on these phases. The moon […]

Bubble Bath Scents

A common saying in the Netherworld, “Bubble baths are proof the moon wants us to be happy.” Large bathing tubs are common in homes, fit with hot and cold water faucets and accessorized with taps that pour lava, slime, swamp muck, acids, or any number of other delights. The key to unlocking maximum relaxation, though, […]

Dungeon Crawl Reviews

May the dry husk I leave behind serve as a warning to my fellow bringers of light — there is nothing but doom for us in this clutch of shadow. Keep away. In these last moments of breath I am handed, of all absurdities, a survey of my experience here? 0 of 5 skulls, I rate. I curse this place and my own hubris.

Goatrude the Witch

While many creatures in the Netherworld can use a wide variety of magic natively, the study and practice of witchcraft – a specific discipline – is rare.

Forest Cauldron

The trees along the clearing’s southern edge inhaled while the trees on the north chanted with their leaves, brushing against each other to create a sibilant whisper. The resulting sounds began the spell. Forest sprites fluttered into the clearing, carefully placing berries here, ingots of gold there, and littering the entire opening with witchweed roses, […]
