Supplement Review: Adventure Quarterly, Issue #3 from Rite Publishing

When I reviewed Adventure Quarterly, Issue #2, remember when I said that Rite Publishing was chugging along with terrific content? Guess what? They’re continuing the trend with Issue #3! That said, I have no clue how Steve Russell and all the folks at RP are juggling quite an array of products – with the great . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: Adventure Quarterly, Issue #3 from Rite Publishing

Game Fodder: Throne of the Missing King

Here’s a new effort I’ve been working on – combining a Dyson Logos-style map with a bit of description for each location. Though this is a bit larger than a Five Room Dungeon, I’m using the same general concepts, keeping things simple with the eventual goal of fleshing this out further.

It is a work . . . → Read More: Game Fodder: Throne of the Missing King

Supplement Review: 100 Useless Summonings and Conjurations by Scott Lee from Lee’s Lists

Of late I’ve noticed many different products appearing from a new publishing output called Lee’s Lists in the DriveThruRPG/RPGNow space. And when I say many, I’m talking 60+ different collections on a wide range of topics. Some are 100 long. Some are 1000 long. But they all seem to be a single page and not . . . → Read More: Supplement Review: 100 Useless Summonings and Conjurations by Scott Lee from Lee’s Lists

Adventure Review: Illfrost: Bondage by Don Pritchett & Tom Flowers from Illusionary Press

It’s cold in Lannithir and the Ice Duke only wants to make it colder.

First of all, thanks to Brian for giving me this opportunity to explain the Penumbra Project.

Penumbra: The Post-apocalyptic gothic role playing game is a new role playing game that was recently released.

Penumbra maintains a perfect contrast between romanticism and brutality beautifulness and decrepitude, neatness and obscenity, education and vulgarity… life and death. All . . . → Read More: Guest Post: Penumbra Explained by Javier Cuesta

The Gassy Gnoll: Shackle-free Gaming

It’s come up a time or two that this Gassy Gnoll is a bit… free… with his campaigns. At times the sand in the box has been a bit course, rubbing both the GM and the players a bit raw.

Honestly I typically create a world, dump the characters into it, and then do something . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Shackle-free Gaming

Creighton’s Corner: Successful Adventuring

I remember repeatedly reading pages 107 – 109 of the AD&D Player’s Handbook almost thirty years ago in an attempt to not die as much as I was. Over almost thirty years of game play I reckon I’ve learnt a fair amount about how to survive a dungeon crawl (or other danger-filled adventure). Of . . . → Read More: Creighton’s Corner: Successful Adventuring

Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: Deceit and the Mutants in the Desert

I love deceiving my players. Playing with their senses – sight and sound, social prejudices…

This is a type of adventure with the intent to confuse players. It uses certain stereotypical thought and can be reduced to a simple principle in most survival scenarios in post-apocalyptic settings. Normal people are typically afraid of getting dirty.

Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: No Remorse

Hi there folks. I am in a killing mood, so we’re back to talking about “killing” in RPGs…

Often players will decide to take the role (class, profession, etc) of a killer (assassin, night blade, etc.) with a very simple concept. I am an extremely skilled person with extremely powerful abilities I can use to . . . → Read More: Ancient Scroll’s Secret Room: No Remorse
