Campaign Kludge

Continued planning for my current Midderlands Game Anyone who knows me will be aware that I’ve fallen heavily for the OSR side of the Force (it even replacing my once-beloved Fate in my affections). I’m also much enamoured when people talk about how they’ve run D&D for a million-years in the same campaign setting – […]

Random Things – Fellow Prisoners

We’ve all been in the situation where our character has been caught bang-to-rights for some sort of indiscretion or perhaps has been falsely accused and has found themselves in prison. Perhaps you were taken captive whilst raiding a dungeon and now languish in a cell yourself? One thing that can add flesh to these encounters […]

Whitebox Race Class: Tiefling

Tiefling I had great fun adapting/creating some race-classes previously for use in Whitebox, you can see my prevous post here. I’m also a huge fan of the Tiefling in 5E so it seemed natural to make a race class for the Tiefling but it took me a while to consider what niche it may fill in […]

I’m not entirely sure why but it seems to […]

10 Noises in the Darkness

We’ve all been in the situation where your PC is exploring some sort of underground dungeon, lit only by the flickering light of their lantern, suddenly someone falls into a trap or there is an unexpected gust of wind that extinguishes the lamp and plunges the group into darkness. In the darkness the PCs are […]

20 Abandoned Dwarf-hold Encounters

Ancient–and often abandoned–Dwarven strongholds have been a staple of the fantasy genre ever since the mines of Moria captured the imagination of readers, and perhaps for even longer. There’s something about the great stone halls of the Dwarves, delving deep below the surface of the earth, bedecked in the faded grandeur of a one mighty […]

Poll: Drag and Drop Content

I want to get back to writing some RPG stuff again, probably OSR since that’s what I’m enjoying at the minute and OSR stuff can be used by basically anyone who plays D&D. I’ve been toying around with some ideas and I want to create stuff that will be of maximum use to as many […]
