Pits PerilousNostalgia: OK (OSR) Boomer...

So I recently spoke with a young gamer who extolled the objective superiority of modern games, alleging that we oldsters only cling to the OSR out of nostalgia. I reminded him that many older people like new games, and that many young people like older games, which effectively ended the debate. This got me thinking though. Is nostalgia really a dirty word, a doddering longing for the past that clouds our reason? Sometimes. We humans like our rose-colored glasses. But for something as specific as…

Since OSE seems to be sadly lacking in the Kraken department, I suppose these over-sized cephalopod might serve as substitutes in a pinch.

Remixes and RevelationsOSR: Outsider Alignment

unknownMy Outsider Megapost has one real weakness, and that is because I haven't really written on the morality or culture of Outsiders. This post is an attempt to correct that.There are three types of Outsider: Angels, Demons and Spirits. However, unlike mortals, who are often conflicted and contradictory, Outsiders are living exemplars of certain virtues, vices or ideals. They are usually iron-willed and almost unable to compromise. As such, Outsiders generally only inhabit the extremes of m…

Sheep and SorceryAgainst RP Snobbery or On the Merits of the Murderhobo

If you dive into the world of D&D Greentexts or Reddit Threads mostly about DMs or other players complaining about players who "don't take the game seriously." One of the most egregious examples of this was a story I heard that I wish I could link you to but I cannot remember where I saw it.The gist of the story is thus: OP usually plays at one of the DM's tables for an Adventurer's League game but his table is full this particular evening. As at many stores, they have multiple tables running a…

Hall of the Mountain KingAppendix Z - C. L. Moore

Appendix Z - C. L. MooreI have only read a fraction of her writing, the Jirel and Northwest Smith stories, and not all of them, but C. L. Moore stands out as one of the great writers of weird tales and, with Jirel, the first woman who mastered swords and sorcery fiction. The Black God's Kiss touches on Hodgson, on Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, but in her own style and her own view of the weird and the horrific matched with a sense of adventure.

Box Full of BoxesA Red Letter Day - a holiday & festival generator

Everyone needs a day off. While not all holidays can be as good as Halloween, they're usually a good time, at least if they're supposed to be about celebration in the first place. Many holidays or festivals are more about honoring the gods, commemorating an event, or simply bringing the community together in difficult times. In many settings these rituals or festivals could be of huge import, even vital to the survival of a community or people. Or they could just simply fun events largely divorc…

The Nine and Thirty KingdomsWhy I Like both Wisdom and Intelligence

I have no major topic for today, so I’ll turn to a minor topic: overlapping abilities.There’s a forum discussion about what people would pick for a seventh ability, if they were to add one, and a side topic that showed up was a complaint about Intelligence and Wisdom being “the same thing”. But of course, they aren’t the same thing. They just overlap. And I love ability overlaps.Let’s start from the conventional wisdom (har!) that Intelligence and Wisdom are the same thing. OK, but people’s sc…

I have a fondness for Scorpions of all sizes. Apocryphally, when I was only a year or so old, our home was invaded by these arachnids one sweltering summer.

An Abominable FancyLandshut Rules for 5e

I enjoy D&D 5e, but my heart belongs to games like Maze Rats and Sword & Backpack—games where you can keep all the rules in your head, and make up the rest. So I've been keenly following the Landshut posts over on Darkworm Colt.5e has a pretty decent skill list, a standard equipment list, and plenty of examples for character powers to draw on. So, I threw together a quick-and-dirty pdf of 5e-inspired Landshut hack.5e Landshut RulesFollowing Mr. Matausch's example, let's make a couple characte…

The Savage AfterWorld"Virtual" Gary Con Day 2: Dominated Dust Mites And A Kick In The Shins

And my last day of Virtual Gary Con has come to a close. This last-minute shift to an online event has worked out much, MUCH better than I expected, and I have had an absolute blast. I bought some awesome stuff from dealers, I chatted and drank with other attendees, I ran four games for more than 20 folks across the country....and I never left the chair in my basement. It's been fun, and I

Mixed Signals GamingMagic stories

You may know Magic the Gathering as a card game, but many Magic the Gathering (MTG) players also know it as a multiverse of rich lore and exciting tales of adventure. Wizards of the Coast, the creators of MTG, have published books (both hardcover and online) and comics about the characters and locations that appear in the game, and people follow the story with genuine interest. In fact, there are players who all but believe you're not even playing Magic the Gathering unless you understa...

Bernie the FlumphWyrdwood Village

I've got a new campaign idea in my head, because clearly I don't have enough projects to keep me busy. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it right yet. Once the plague leaves our far lands, I'm probably going to propose it as the next campaign for my home group. Or, if I ever get room for another online game I might run it as like a virtual open-table. It's a spooky (but not horror)

Bernie the FlumphLord Wyrd's Library

Lord Wyrd’s library is massive and sprawling. It is also messy and disorganized with no categorization system that anyone can determine. His family’s collection of ancient tomes and treatises is unmatched outside of academic circles. The library contains information on a wide variety of subjects, but most of the collection deals with the Wyrdwood and its environs, inhabitants, and history.

Bat in the AtticA Location that inspired me

I lived in my hometown my whole life and occasionally get to see some off beat location decades after I visited them as a kid. During high school I would walk two miles to play DnD at a friend house. To get there I had to cross one of the older (and largest) cemetery in my town. Just beyond its border was a ravine that I had to follow a path down and up before I reached the road my friends' house was on the other side of the woods.The place where I crossed the stream in the ravine never ceased …

The Vanishing TowerDeath Frost Doom Session Report #1

I always tell myself to just breath easy, take a moment before speaking, and try not to freeze up when there is much I must respond to immediately and anticipate its “logical” reaction in real time. There is nary a session I have not been freaked out at some point during play. The freak out goes something like this: What do I do? What do I do? What do I do? What do I do? What do I do? What

Akratic WizardrySalutations from Limbo

This was the scene from my family's cottage on the shore of Lake Huron (near Goderich, Ontario) this morning:My spouse and I are in quarantine here. The coast is largely devoid of people right now. Only the soft lapping of the waves and the occasional cries of birds break the eerie silence.It's beautiful and sad at the same time. I feel like we stumbled through a portal into a forgotten region of Limbo.Hope all of you are doing well during this difficult time.

Alex Schroeder: IndieDeveloping the rules

I’ve had two sessions of my 2d6 “ancient school” game, now. I started with a small set of rules (see 2020-03-27 Ancient School Rules) and I am starting to feel the urge to systematise my approach. Perhaps this should go under “Referee Guide” of the system? 🙂How should I handle a spell with an area of effect? I have a character that can throw fireballs. I need to remember that this characters is just a beginner. So their “fireball” is more like a magic missile: it strikes a single person, or if …

Rise Up ComusHumans - The Dopest Race Around

I hang out in a few game design communities. None of them are any good except the ones specifically targeted for OSR content (which is why even though my game His Majesty the Worm isn't a retroclone it is OSR-adjacent). One of the perennial posts I see in these communities is: What are humans good at?When you have other races, it seems obvious what their advantages are. Elves are smart and magical and agile. Krogans are super tough and battle ready and don't breed well. Etc. etc. But humans? Wh…

This is something that Saker Tarsos and I started a long long long long long time ago and never got even close to finishing.
