for anybody interested, i have done a small research on Kabal: this further to the request of serelan present in this topic: viewtopic.php?t=5895

well the outcome is that this is an italian rpg (not to be confused with the Kabal rpg which stands for "Knights And Berserkers And Legerdemain")... it is dated 1988, one of the authors is an acaeum member, and it is an Italian-language RPG printed in a small-press (photocopy) fanzine named "Rune" -- part of a local RPG club, called "Lords of Dragons". It is a modern-day horror-genre game, set in Northern Italy with the addition of various mad cultists and strange curses. The system is similar to "Call of Chtulhu" with a simple D6 mechanics and rules for ritual magic (source: http://www.darkshire.net/jhkim/rpg/ency ... alian.html)

for anybody interested, here you can find an italian article on Kabal: http://www.rill.it/inediti/kabaldietro.htm
in addition to that, in the same page you can find the link to an online reprint of the game (kabal rpg: http://www.rill.it/inediti/kabal.htm) and of an adventure (kabal adventure: http://www.rill.it/inediti/kabalavv.htm)... of course both of them are in italian...

ciaooo

The game will be revised and republished (I guess next year) in the Levity series... :D  8)  :wink:

Sweet! I must get a copy (of the original if possible and of the reprint otherwise.) Thanks for the link to the online version. Yay! I've been looking for this for about 2 years now.

Mostly horror, "occult," or odd games. Kabal fits. So does the French version of Nephilim. So does Aquelarre in Spanish. Oh, and I'd love to find a Swedish/German/non-English version of Kult. :)

Just hard to find them this side of the Pond. :(

...then you should definitely look for "Angeli e Demoni" and "Inferno"!!!
