Review: The Soul of Adventure: Islands of the Meencan Seas4>
A new but completely unknown RPG
I stumbled over this book written by Robert Bird while browsing for odd RPG's to try out. I liked the cover and considered buying it, but I couldn't find any reviews at all. I asked reddit with no results, so I decided to buy it anyway because I liked the cover and my curiosity got the better...
Gary Gygax 75 Challenge - Week 34>
A dungeon. No actually - A full adventure module!
Last week I finished week 3 of the Gary Gygax 75 Challenge. In that part of the challenge you are supposed to create and populate a dungeon. I did that. And a whole lot more!
What was supposed to be a fairly simple one page dungeon blew up completely and turned into a 13 page adventure module!...
Choosing an OSR System for Hot Springs Island4>
My notes for making the decision
I've been wanting to run The Dark of Hot Springs Island ever since I discovered it this spring. Even though I have the pdf I feel like a game like this deserves to be run with the hardcover books. Especially the excellent player-facing Field Guide.
I have decided to run it with an OSR system...
Review: The Sealed Library4>
A solo journaling game by Matt Sanders
It's time for my first review!
I have a few other games I want to review, but I played through this one today and figured I'd give it a shot while it's fresh in mind. It's the first solo RPG I've played in probably 20 years.
The Sealed Library by Matt Sanders is a solo journaling RPG powered by...
An exercise in creative motivation
During these plague-ridden days it’s difficult to go out and experience new things to become inspired or motivated. We need something to break free from our regular patterns. I created this abstract system to help with that. It’s an exercise in letting the mind wander and attain new experiences from...
Kickstarter Top 5 - September 20204>
A look at some Kickstarter campaigns
This is the start of a series on Kickstarters that strike my interest.
It should not be thought of as a review since I don't really have anything to review other than what's on the campaign page and I'm not getting paid by the creators to promote their campaigns. This is merely my own subjective o...
Gary Gygax 75 Challenge - Week 24>
Hexmap and random encounters
Next step in the journey towards building a campaign setting in 5 weeks.
I finished the week 2 challenge after just 2 days. Of course it could be polished more, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I'll probably add more random encounter tables and a bestiary, but that's out of scope...
Gary Gygax 75 Challenge - Week 14>
First step towards a new campaign setting
As many readers might be aware of there's this thing called the Gary Gygax 75 Challenge going on. The gist of it is to use a simple framework to write a complete campaign setting in just 5 weeks.
You can read more about it here.
I just finished the first week yesterday, and even though I didn...
Let's Get This Blog Started!4>
What is it and why?
I have been extremely interested in tabletop role-playing ever since my childhood friend introduced me to them back in the mid 90s. I spent countless hours reading Swedish RPG books (Eon and Drakar & Demoner) and creating my own settings. I didn't get to play much, as I was terrified of asking my fr...
