[Review] Towers Two (Lotfp); To Out-Raggi Raggi

Man my search engine hits are going to take a turn for the worst. Towers Two is an adventure for 4-6 characters of levels 4-6 by the lamentably deceased Dave Brockie, lead singer of GWAR and posthumously finished by Joe Bittman (Dungeon Alphabet). I think Lotfp is officially finished. Not in the sense that it … More [Review] Towers Two (Lotfp); To Out-Raggi Raggi

[Old Shit] The Quest for the Nanorien Stones (AD&D 3pp); The Iacton Cruze of adventures

In the OSR we have a tendency to look to the past for guidance. The entire movement is centred around the idea that there were qualities in the olden games that the modern, more codified versions have failed to capture. With that comes a certain veneration for the modules of yesteryear: Caverns of Thracia, Expedition … More [Old Shit] The Quest for the Nanorien Stones (AD&D 3pp); The Iacton Cruze of adventures

[Review] F3 Many Gates of the Gann (AD&D 1e 3pp); The Sincerest form of Flattery

Many Gates of the Gann by Guy Fullerton of Chaotic Henchman is that rarest of rare OSR, a product that perfectly captures the spirit of classic modules like Expedition to the Barrier Peaks and Lost Caverns of Tjocanth without ever feeling like a derivative piece of shit. Whilst the community is eager to heap praise on mediocrities … More [Review] F3 Many Gates of the Gann (AD&D 1e 3pp); The Sincerest form of Flattery

[Review] Jade & Steel – Roleplaying in Mythic China (d20 3pp); Ping-pongs and Ting-Tongs and all sorts of Wing-Wongs

Another year has passed. My holiday foray into winter-haunted canada rocked, the new Star Wars was a piece of shit and elfgames are still delicious. Now back to your regular programming. I figured there would be no better way to kickstart the new year then with a look at yet another obsolete campaign setting from … More [Review] Jade & Steel – Roleplaying in Mythic China (d20 3pp); Ping-pongs and Ting-Tongs and all sorts of Wing-Wongs

[Review] The Purple Worm Graveyard (OSR LL); Slightly above average dungeoncrawl

Purple Worm Graveyard by Tony Dowler is a 7-page (5-pages are pure dungeon) 13-room dungeon for Labyrinth Lord for character levels 1-3. It’s alright, and that is always a bitch because I can’t get worked up over things that are alright (while statistically, most adventures are bound to fall into this category). The central premise … More [Review] The Purple Worm Graveyard (OSR LL); Slightly above average dungeoncrawl

[Review] The Chest (OSR 2e); Oldschool Charm

Disclaimer: Sponsored Content The original concept of the module as an adventure that may be freely slotted into any campaign world without taking up a great deal of time or cataclysmically impacting the campaign world in question is somewhat less common or even trendy in the days of the OSR. Many adventures either have built-in … More [Review] The Chest (OSR 2e); Oldschool Charm

[Review] Flower Liches of the Dragonboat Festival (OSR); An Opium-fueled Kaleidoscope of Decay, Folklore and Horror

I first encountered this strange, elusive figure by way of his grotesque Castle Gargantua, a megadungeon inspired by such works as Gargantua & Pantagruel, the Nutcracker Suite, Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelungen and Mervyn Peake’s Ghormenghast.

[Review] Zweihander (WFR OSR) Pt. X; Adventure & Conclusion

This final installment in my longest review ever will cover the introductory adventure A Bitter Harvest and then wrap everything up with a nice and tidy conclusion. Introductory adventures are a special and arguably quite challenging subspecies of the Adventure genus, having to balance the introduction of foreign or obscure game mechanics as well as … More [Review] Zweihander (WFR OSR) Pt.
