Sine Nomine Publishing has released the House of Blood and Amber Art pack for free and the 6 images contained are public domain. Now it’s not as many as I would have hoped but they are in full color which is a plus and the price is right. So why not pick this up when you get a few spare minutes, can’t go wrong.
Castles & Crusades was my Gateway Drug to the OSR. It was an easy transition from d20 3.5 back to the glory days of my youth, but this was the product that did it for me. Well, several printings ago, but the same one nonetheless. I know it was for Erik Tenkar as well. But I’m curious, what brought you back to the OSR, or did you never leave it to begin with. Have you been playing B/X since you were 10? What’s your story? How many other people did this seductress get her hands onto?
Mine was simple, 3.x was too crunchy, 4e was around the corner, I decided to look back and anything that had Gygax’s approval was good enough for me. Plus, I absolutely love Yggsburg and Castle Zygag.
If you missed out on the Kickstarter but want to get this really cool adventure for Spears of the Dawn, you can get it now for a discounted price of $7.49, which I believe is 50% off. Not bad. I’m reading now cover to cover and if I can get the balls to write a review I will. I just haven’t been in the right frame of mind to tell other people what I think. This happens way too often with me.
I have way too many things to read ever since I won the contest from Gothridge Manor’s 1,000th post. I hope to write some reviews of that stuff too. I’ll get around to doing this stuff on a more regular basis at some point in my life. Until then expect nonsense and drivel from me.
EDIT: Also I can’t wait for the artwork to be released for this product. Nice colour art to be released into the Public Domain. Fucking ROCKS!
Smell that? That’s neglect. I haven’t touched this blog in some time. Well, I decided that I will be participating in the S&W Appreciation Day.
After talking with Erik Tenkar, I’m working on a little project to basically use 0lvl characters and a “funnel” for S&W.
I’m now hosting a Diaspora Cluster Generator that produces output such as this:
Original Code belongs to Jeffrey Cuscutis, who I asked if he would make it open source. So now the code sits on GitHub for the world to use and modify to their liking. It’ll probably be a while before I dig in and make modifications myself, but as it stands its a very good basic generator.
If you don’t have Diaspora I would highly recommend it. It is a very well done, stripped down version of FATE. Nice and simple.
My new addiction. I missed out of the kickstarter but that doesn’t matter as it’s free anyway. But this little thing has helped me get a lot of shit done. It’s down right awesome!
Right now I don’t have a party setup, but I may start one. If you already are a user and want to add me to your party my ID is:
If you would rather me start the party up post your id in the comments and I’ll be glad to add you. I’m seriously amazed at the amount of stuff I’m getting done just with this little app. Can’t wait for them to finish the mobile versions.
Something dear to my heart is gaming with children. Brave Halfling has put out a very trimmed down OSR “Supplement” to be used to simplify play while gaming with children.
After reading the 8 pages I think it could work for adult play too if you wanted something even simpler than “Whitebox” or “Delving Deeper” (although the sidebar on the shop says it’s for Labyrinth Lord)
As a sort of mini-review in the short 8 pages, I love it. I love most things associated with childrens gaming.
