As requested, a transcript of the letters of two of those three black-hearted necromancers currently active in the borderlands of the OSR. The corruption goes much deeper then we could have dreamed. We can only pray that all OSRmen will have the spiritual strength and moral fortitude to fight off any attacks by this corrosive … More The Case of John Daniel Koebel
A gentleman by the name of ~ZOZ asked to see more OSR campaign setting reviews since Bryce doesn’t touch them. Well and good, says I, I’ve reviewed some in the past, but I’ve never really made any of my standards explicit. With the purpose of increasing usability I shall do so now. This post focuses … More [Ramble] On Campaign Settings: Review Standards
Bleeding and slime-covered I made my way from that accursed place, with no memory of what had transpired, nor what dark bargains were struck under alien stars. When finally I returned to my abode I glanced at the calendar to find that months had passed, and on some distant, alien rock a black pyramid had … More [Interview] The Merciless Merchants Vermillion Kickstarter Interview a.k.a.

Endzeitgeist, my mighty neighbour to the west, whose catalog of review-accomplishments dwarfs that of my own paltry efforts like the mighty Sequoia towers over the bonsai, has elected to review my efforts and Aaron’s and gives what is probably the most detailed, most elaborate and most positive review of Red Prophet Rises ever. Genre-wise, this … More A Masterclass Level Review
In my last post I reviewed the experimental Dead God Excavation by mr. Venger Satanis, previously featured (rather positively I might add) on this blog here and here. This more recent outing failed to titillate my elfgame taste buds, netting it a negative judgement, and he responded here. While he was very polite and agreed with roughly half of what I … More PrinceofNothing Presents; A Gentlemanly Response to the Claims of Reverend Satanis In Which Several Misunderstandings are Clarified.
This is some next level insanity, so I suggest everyone grab a bowl of popcorn and make yourself a nice hot mug of coffee and settle in. American politics has cast its loathsome shadow upon the OSR once again. In the space of two days, our peaceful and more or less unified community has been … More The Great OSR Shitstorm is here

II – Blood and Fire; What is that there is that the script?
First off: I ran Tales of the Scarecrow yesterday and it was awesome. This is the Tales of the Scarecrow entry that won the xp award (and added a nice ticking clock element). The scarecrow wants to become a living being and for that it needs to have living flesh. It will start moving at … More Negadungeons and the thespian wankathon; Idle musings.
I had another Idea for a megadungeon-based campaign setting. The players are goverment/scientist/criminal operatives exploring a predatory alternate reality that lies parallel and is slowly invading our own. Whether they are a team of eggheads on a goverment budget exploring a natural fissure or a ragtag band of loveable entrepeneurs that have scrounged together enough … More Setting Spotlight: Giger’s Inferno
There are time when the universe seems cruel, random, hostile. One cannot help but stare at the ignorance, violence and self-destructiveness of modern man and wonder how it ever got so far. Today is not such a day. Today we are shown that good things can happen. Anna Kreider a.k.a wundergeek a.k.a the wicked witch … More Rejoice!
