Well well well, look what the shoggoth dragged in.


Izirion's Enchiridion of the West Marches

Izirion’s Enchiridion is a source book for West Marches style play. It’s written for fifth edition D&D, but has some guidelines for converting it to OSR systems. Overall, I like it, and have only minor complaints. It’s worth checking out.

First Impressions of Troika!

Today I ran my first session of Troika!, a very weird Book of the New Sun / Dying Earth / Discworld style game. We had a lot of fun, it’s pretty rules light, and we’ll probably be playing it again some time.

Knock! An Adventure Gaming Bric-a-brac (#1)

Knock! is a recently kickstarted zine full of goodness from the OSR blogosphere. It’s wonderfully designed, and crammed with information. There’s a nice mix of stuff which is immediately useful (like Just Use Bears, or the Dungeon Checklist), and some more thought-provoking articles too. Plus some great art. I recommend it, and am looking forward to issue #2!
