I’m working on commissioning a cover for a new project I’m working on, another setting/supplement for Lamentations of the Flame Princess! I’ll post more about it when I get the cover.
In my spare time, I’ve been working on a Pathfinder product with the WIP name of Surgery Requires Leeches. It will contain the surgeon class and focus on medieval medicine in Pathfinder. I’m going to post an open beta within the coming weeks on Reddit/Paizo/GitP, so you may want to look out for that.
First, my crowdfunding campaign is still on track, and as the launch date is 2 days away, its exceedingly unlikely that it won’t launch on time! Second, I’ve begun working on a minor side project with my free time, Legends of Demigods and Daemons. TL;DR: Mash-up of Wushu and OSR goodness in Greek myth
I just decided to start posting assorted reviews of RPG products I buy online and made my first post. If you want to look at some of the reviews, here’s the link: http://ragtag-grognard-reviews.blogspot.com/
Expansions and Errata II just went live on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow!
E&E II will contain the
- Minstrel class
- Jovian class
- Background rules
- Alternate magic rules
- and other misc. bits and pieces
I’m currently polishing it up and finishing a few things. It should be on DTRPG soon.
Other News: I’ve been contemplating publishing a compiled version of Witches and Wyverns containing the core rules and the E&E material… Advanced Witches and Wyverns, Witches and Wyverns Complete…? More on that later.
EDIT: I removed background rules (/lifepath) to E&E III and E&E II has been submitted for approval on DTRPG.
At the moment I have 2 (kinda 3) projects in the works. The first one is Pagans of the Desolate Wastes, a module for Lamentations of the Flame Princess that will be on Indiegogo in July. The second is Warrior-Princes of Planet Xi, an expansion for White Star featuring Conan/Beowulf-esque space barbarians. The ‘third’ idea is a mixture of ideas for a second Expansions and Errata for Witches and Wyverns. If you like the concepts I just described, keep watch on Indiegogo/your local DriveThruRPG, or this blog, as I will be posting when they go live.
In this post, I’m going to make a (kinda) comprehensive list of what inspires my writing and my design.
- Jules Verne’s assorted works
- H.G. Wells’ assorted works
- Robert E. Howard’s Conan
- Robert E. Howard’s Solomon Kane
- Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit
- Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot
- Isaac Asimov’s Foundation
- H.P. Lovecraft’s The Colour from Out of Space
- H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu
- Baldur’s Gate
- Dwarf Fortress
- Star Wars
- Monty Python and the Holy Grail
- Dungeons and Dragons 3.0e/3.5e
- Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2e
- Spelljammer (AD&D 2e setting)
- The Black Hack
- Swords and Wizardry
- White Star
- Apocalypse World
- Dungeon World
- Call of Cthulhu
- Lasers and Feelings
- Barbarians of Lemuria
I just wanted to make a short statement on why I like old school RPGs, so here are the (top) three reasons I like them:
- Compatibility: Almost any OSR RPG is compatible with/can be converted to every other, this means that you can take Labyrinth Lord module Y and convert it to The Black Hack, or other system Z.
- Simplicity: Unlike the d20 system, most OSR games are very rules light and simple, often fitting in a few pages (see Swords and Wizardry Light).
- Fans: OSR game often have more rabid fan bases and more DNA created content than other games.
A new product called Fantast Hackbreaker will be coming out on DriveThruRPG/RPGNow soon. It combines bits and pieces from Fate and The Black Hack to make a wonderful new dungeon delving game.
Diagnosis? 100% fantasy heartbreaker, and proud of it!
