Something very bad happened to you a very long time ago: you died and it fucking hurt. 

Your blood is cold, but your skin is colder. Your heart might as well be made of stone. Your memory is like treacle. Sometimes, you even remember to blink. 

Being dead sucks, but I know what will make you feel better. Wet your mouth a little, have a drink! It’s time for a party. Let’s…

Paint The Town Red


Paint The Town Red is a sad vampire RPG from SoulMuppet Publishing, created by Zachary Cox (Orbital Blues, Inevitable, Best Left Buried) and with art direction from Johan Nohr (MÖRK BORG, CY_BORG, Into The Odd). This is a game about depression, partying and falling in love, and explores themes of trauma, vice and loneliness. 

Your characters are vampires, afflicted with the Curse of Undeath. Being dead feels horrid, and the goal of every character is to chase the sensation of feeling alive and escape the rot they feel in their soul.  

Paint The Town Red is set in the greatest cities throughout history, where the Dead mass together to form an active nightlife. Sessions of Paint The Town Red feel more like boozy nights out on the town than heroic quests, complete with pre-drinks, loud music, smoking areas and hangovers. 

This 94 page book is a Quickstart to the full game, coming to Kickstarter in September 2024, and contains our first adventure: A MODERN BABYLON, set on the streets of Victorian London in 1862. The characters will become embroiled in London’s pulsing nightlife, facing off against a gang of werewolves, undead agents of the British Empire, and the lich who dwells in the Tower of London. None of them will take kindly to your characters spoiling their perfect immortality.

SoulMuppet uses shipping partners in the UK and USA to provide shipping that's versatile and cost effective. We've focused on working with indie people within the games industry who understand our products, and providing shipping that lets as many customers as possible pay customs fees and duties upfront to avoid hassles at the border.

Our US shipping operation is a single person working part-time and our UK operation is part of a shared service with other games companies. Both are small and are businesses we hope we can help grow alongside us. This means we absolutely cannot ship and process items like a giant online business with multiple fulfilment centres, and nor do we aspire to. We're focused on paying the people we work with a fair wage and treating them as people.

United Kingdom Delivery

We send UK packages 1st class untracked, although larger and heavier packages may be sent tracked. The rates we charge on the store are for untracked. Typically this means a 2-4 day turnaround from you ordering your books to delivery. This is subject to delays related to Royal Mail services such as strikes or seasonal volumes. On occasion, large volumes of Kickstarter fulfilment at our warehouse can delay store orders.

United States Delivery

We send US orders via USPS media mail where possible. Turnaround times in our US warehouse vary significantly as it is a shared service that does a lot of Kickstarter fulfilment. Most orders will be processed within 48 hours, but processing can take up to 7 working days.

Most orders are sent via USPS media mail, but where items are not suitable for media mail we'll choose the most appropriate service for the order based on its contents.

EU Delivery

We send EU packages tracked and where available via services that include duty paid in advance. This is reflected in what you pay on the store. For Kickstarter fulfilment products, this relies upon you picking the correct country variant and paying the correct amount. All our packages are sent with duty paid, either as books or at standard rate for non-books items. We are not able to take responsibility for decisions made by customs agencies in destination countries if they decide additional charges are needed.

Duty paid in advance services have a limit of £200. If your order goes over this value you will be responsible for dealing with the cost of duties and customs on arrival.

Rest of World Delivery

We set up shipping rates for countries not covered above on an individual basis. If you find the store shows everything as out of stock or you are unable to complete checkout because of your address, please contact us and we'll investigate options for setting up shipping to your country.

We send orders to countries not covered above using tracked services that are the most reliable available to us. This is often expensive, but costs less then resending packages multiple times.
