PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt. II; Sandbox-ah-la-roi

Amid a cluster of fifty-foot sapele trees with bright yellow petals, there is a contamination. Anyone moving through this area will experience a bright flash of light, followed by a moment of disorientation. All characters must save versus Magic. Failure means that there is a moment of darkness, and when the characters open their eyes … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt. II; Sandbox-ah-la-roi

PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt.I; XXL Glorious Pulp Sandbox

The last review before I commence another megareview. Had to finish with an Lotfp entry by none other then Rafael Chandler, veteran weird horror tabeltop designer, novelist, video game story writer and newly converted Lotfp heavyweight. World of the Lost is a 180-page behemoth of a sandbox, taking place on a forgotten plateau somewhere in … More PrinceofNothingReviews: World of the Lost (Lotfp) Pt.I; XXL Glorious Pulp Sandbox

PrinceofNothingReviews: The Atheneum of Yearning (Lotfp 3PP); Had I the heavens embroidened cloths…

I am proud to present the second review request, a PWYW Lotfp 3rd party supplement. I give assurences to my other patron that the GREAT WORK is by no means neglected and continues on at a steady, if at times glacial, pace. The Atheneum of Yearning by Steven Oswald is a PWYW adventure for character … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Atheneum of Yearning (Lotfp 3PP); Had I the heavens embroidened cloths…

PrinceofNothingReviews: Into the Odd (OSR); Brevity is the soul of Wit.

Nothing to clear a bad hangover like a good elf-game review. Case in point, Into the Odd, by Chris McDowall, is an ultra rules-light OSR weird/steampunk game. In 48 pages McDowall manages to set down not just a fully playable game, but manages, by but a few details and hints, to convey a unique sort … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Into the Odd (OSR); Brevity is the soul of Wit.

PrinceofNothingReviews: Monkey Buisness (OSR); WHAT IN THE NAME OF GARL GLITTERGOLD DID I JUST READ?

Full disclaimer: I was asked to review this strange pay-what-you want adventure nominally compatible with the OSR by fellow rpg-blogger and fellow Euro-trash Jens Durke aka the Disoriented Ranger (Swamp-German hello to you my Teutonic brother in arms!). I was naturally flattered and took to the task post-haste (or semi-post haste). Unfortunately it sucks in … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Monkey Buisness (OSR); WHAT IN THE NAME OF GARL GLITTERGOLD DID I JUST READ?

Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e Pt. VII; Adventure and Summary

After a brief hiatus, it is time to complete this endaevour and move on to other, grim-darker pastures. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay has a sample adventure in the back of the book, meant to kickstart a beginning GM’s campaign and illustrate the mode of play. It has the promising title of the Oldentaller contract, and I … More Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e Pt. VII; Adventure and Summary

Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Pt. VII; Grim Darkness at last!

Finally. Fucking finally. After getting all lubed up after a gritty medieval character creation start and combat that involves maiming and bleeding out in the mud we suddenly grow limp at the lacklustre religion, magic and bestiary sections. Not so the actual setting, which is the grimdarkness that we all fondly remember. In ye ancient … More Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Pt. VII; Grim Darkness at last!

Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e Pt. VI; Like DnD but…

This chapter, which concerns the Old World’s Menagerie,┬ácomes with a preface of like DnD but…, as do┬áthe two preceding it. Let’s start with a general overview. I have not covered Bestiaries of appreciable size before so the format might be rough. Don’t say I did not warn you. Monsters in WHF 1e are statted similar … More Review: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e Pt. VI; Like DnD but…
