R’lyehwatch is a rules-light tabletop roleplaying game about a group of lifeguards and their friends who protect their local beach from the monsters trying to take over. It mashes up the campy melodrama of Baywatch with the cosmic horror of the Cthulhu Mythos. It’s played with one referee and one or more players, and all you need are a handful of six-sided dice and some coins, poker chips, or other tokens.

R’lyehwatch uses the Tricube Tales system, a light-weight 3d6 system perfect for new players or casual pick-up-and-play games.
