It was the 8th of the Felmont, and our band awoke in the sunken depths of the Wizard Kavorquian’s dungeon. Groggy from injuries and paralytic poisons, Ioric the Hunter still trapped within a prison of stone, they gathered their lanterns and went west, to explore the Wizard’s library, and opened there the desk that had … More [Actual Play] Swords Against Chaos 07 (B/X Mystara); Turning Point

Oh frabjuous day. The time is at hand. Today we discuss Wagner’s sublime operatic masterpiece Der Ring des Neibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), haphazardly translated by the improbably awesome-named John Deathridge but mostly read in its original German. Not quite mythology but a Teutonic alloy of Norse and German Myth, it sears and blares … More [Booktalk] Der Ring des Niebelungen
A continuation of our previous entry while I struggle manfully through my homework for a donation.

Afore they left Egil gathered them and said his goodbyes, claiming the sea was calling him home. As … More [Actual Play] Swords against Chaos 06 (Mystara B/X); Disaster!
Inspired by a recommendation of the Great Melan. As per usual I did the entire magazine. Some decent fluff pieces, two garbage adventures, a nice Spelljammer one and a very good comedy adventure. Not a bad haul. This issue starts with Adam C. Chun from Texas asking if they can please fuck off with all … More [TenfootpOSR 03] Dungeon #41; Mushroom Band
Priests of Chaos are among the most classic of B/X antagonists, serving as the Big Bad in many modules. Xanathon, The Master and Pericles to name but a few. In the past I would find the blank and amorphous nature of Chaotic clerics in Mystara to be almost frustrating, yearning for the Chaotic pantheons of … More [Blather] The Worship of Chaos
The door swept open to reveal the cadaverous face of Petrides, servant of Chaos. With prayers to a nebulous Outer Darkness on his lips and enchanted steel in his hands he met them, fearing them not. Arrows splintered on his impregnable mail as he rose his spike-topped mace to smite at Hummingbird, when the Sleep … More [Actual Play] Swords Against Chaos 05 (B/X Mystara); Terminus Est
No game this weekend because of scheduling conflicts. Next week! It’s long been my contention that a lot of GMs and settings make their games unnecessarily shitty by having no idea what the various components of the D&D universe are based on or what they are meant to represent. The result is a disjointed mess, … More [Booktalk] Describing Combat & A literary Appendix N; The Illiad
