In this interview I speak to Jarin Dnd from Power Up Gamers about their forthcoming book L’gats Tome of Amazing Creatures Vol III currently on Kickstarter.

Unboxing Video: Midderlands Great Lunden

I’m super excited! I’ve just received my Kickstarter stuff for the Midderlands: Great Lunden, I’m really chuffed to have played a small part in the writing of this excellent set and am grateful to Glynn Seal at Monkeyblood Design, both for giving me the chance to play in his sandbox and also for rushing me […]

Games on Demand: Dark Places & Demogorgons

It’s now only a few days until UK Games Expo 2019 taking place at Birmingham NEC and the Hilton Hotel, and I’m putting the finishing touches to my game-planning notes. If you fancy a quick-shot of RPG action or trying out some different systems, get yourself down to the Churchill Suite in the Hilton where […]

Rose of Westhaven – Season 2

For the second season of our Rose of Westhaven Midderlands campaign we decided to re-focus the game and settled on the idea of a group of church sponsored monster hunters. The game timeline has moved forward ten years, there is a new King on the throne and–against a resurgence of pagan cults and practices–the Church of Westhaven […]

So what’s the solution? I don’t think people with busy schedules and hectic lives […]

Random Roadside Encounters

I was reading a blog post the other day (unfortunately I can’t remember the blog that I saw it on) where the author was discussing how he writes down ideas for roadside/travelling encounters on index cards so that he can pull one out at random when his PCs are travelling. As a sucker for index […]

Quick Spell Duelling system for LOTFP

I’m reading Dungeon Crawl Classics at the moment, it’s a cool OSR game that comes in one of the biggest RPG books I’ve seen since I purchased a copy of Zweihander. The game is a bit chart-tastic for my personal tastes but it’s still a great book to read and has some really cool ideas […]
