About Prince

PrinceofNothing emerged fully formed from the primordial chaos of the proto-universe and seeks to return the rpg hobby to this state once more. This blog collects his thought-pellets, meanderings, drollery, whimsies and rants into a semi-coherent whole that conceals great wisdom in plain sight. He will stop at nothing to ensure not just you, but also your mum, cast off the shackles of the decadent postmodern age of gaming and return to the cold serenity of Final Night.

Whether it is notes for a campaign setting, throw-away ideas, play-reports or reviews, Prince gives one hundred percent for your gaming pleasure. Like a modern day Achilles made of gemstones and molten lava, he seeks to overcome any obstacle through wit, daring, bravery and that thing you do where you run towards your enemy and then do a little half jump and stab someone in the neck as you leap by, like a gazelle (a deadly gazelle).

Prince has played elfin games since he was but a wee sprightly lad, having GMed such noble and upright games as AD&D, Basic, 3rd edition, Dark Heresy 1st edition, your sister’s inner tigh, Das Swarzsche Auge (without knowing the actual rules), Carcosa (yes I played it, and so can you!) and assorted Lamentations adventures. Prince has participated in various other games such as Call of Cthulhu and Stars without Number and even the universally terrible World of Darkness games that no one likes.

As of March 2018, Prince officially joined the gentry of the OSR by teaming up with The Merciless Merchants and writing a kickass adventure.

You can check out reviews here, here and here.

Inquiries, blessings, pleas, offers of arranged marriages and role-playing games one wishes to submit for a review may be sent to princeofnothingblogs@yahoo.com for careful consideration. All is not lost. There is hope. I am here.

A Note for those of delicate sensibilities: Tread Lightly.

Want mijn is het lot…
De trots…
De strijd…
Het lijden…
Bid niet voor mij Sint Gygax…
Maar wend uw ogen af…
Hier is slechts geween en het geknars van tanden…
Een horde van zondaars en ellendelingen…
Verwrongen en bitter…

Bastaards, hoeren en bedriegers…
Zinloos vechtend en verradend to in de eeuwigheid…
Om uw twintig-zijdige troon

  1. I like your blog, quite a bit, it’s interesting even though I haven’t played most of these games and probably never will.

    But, respectfully. I really hate the theme. It’s possible that I have terrible taste and you should keep it the way it is. I have been known to choose themes and color combinations which make people from the eyes bleed because they make me happy.

    Maybe seek some feedback from people with better taste than I have.


    1. Welcome.

      Thank you for your kind words. I think it is the doom of the prolific RPG reviewer to ruminate on games that will mostly never see play so I’ll take that as a compliment.

      I chose the theme mostly so its easy on the eyes, though I am sure it might have some aesthetic deficiencies. I have not looked into the possible psychological effects of this particular color combination so if find yourself frequently nauseous after a visit it’s possible that isn’t just my writing. I’m bad at graphic design and fashion so I’ll take your feedback under honest consideration.
