Horrors of the Age of Dusk; The Last Artificer

Image is courtesy of Wayne Douglas Barlowe AND EVERYONE SHOULD SUPPORT THIS ARTIST EVEN IF IT MEANS YOUR CHILDREN WILL STARVE. Glorious and voluptuous was old Nzembar, with its gleaming streets of polished quartz and gilded minnarets that pierced the very heavens. For an age and a day its wealth was the envy of all … More Horrors of the Age of Dusk; The Last Artificer

PrinceofNothingReviews: The Cursed Chateau (Lotfp); Drowning in the footsteps of Giants

I think I can safely say I have never been more prepared for a review in my life. I not only went through the time and effort to read through the two oldschool Dnd adventures the module is based on, I also, as part of my understanding Isle of the Unknown and the strange mind … More PrinceofNothingReviews: The Cursed Chateau (Lotfp); Drowning in the footsteps of Giants

PrinceofNothingReviews: Twilight of Atlantis (d20 3pp); An age Undreamed of by Man.

There is something about Atlantis or the idea of a Hyborean Age that really appeals to me. A vast stretch of history both familiar and utterly strange, in which high adventure may be had and creatures from bygone myth may be confronted. So alluring is this apocryphal era that it has even spawned some roleplaying … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Twilight of Atlantis (d20 3pp); An age Undreamed of by Man.

[Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: X2 – Castle Amber (D&D Basic); A trippy masterpiece of Weird-Tale Adventure

A while ago I reviewed The Stygian Garden of Abelia Prem, and described it as proper weird fucking fantasy. But it was, despite its trappings and appearance of weird, still rather of mundane. A journeyman’s weird fantasy adventure if you will. In preparation for the Cursed Chateau by OSR pope and loveable Kickstarter draftdodger J.Malesewski, I … More [Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: X2 – Castle Amber (D&D Basic); A trippy masterpiece of Weird-Tale Adventure

[Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: Tegel Manor (D&D 3PP); The Original Fun-House Dungeon

In preparation for the review of a certain Lotfp module by a certain well-loved OSR blogger who failed to deliver on a certain kickstarter and is now ominously silent, I have decided to take a look at the two modules it lists as having ripped off the most. Tegel Manor by Judges Guild is old … More [Old Shit] PrinceofNothingReviews: Tegel Manor (D&D 3PP); The Original Fun-House Dungeon

Horrors of the Age of Dusk: The Grey Maidens

(Feeling productive/Anti-productive so double post today guys) Banished to the deepest labyrinths and darkest chasms abandoned since time immemorial, the Grey Maidens were said to be the concubines of the Harrow King Ashardath. Affronted by the attempted murder by one of their own, he worked upon them a foul and nameless sorcery the world has … More Horrors of the Age of Dusk: The Grey Maidens

Setting Spotlight: Giger’s Inferno

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

PrinceofNothingReviews: Nile Empire – War in Heliopolis (d20 3pp); A History of Ancient Egypt meets Thor #332

As God of the Sun, Amun-Re sails his mighty barge across the heavens of Nut, arising in the East and disappearing in the West each day. At night, he travels through the Underworld to begin his day anew in the Eastern sky. Pharaohs are considered the Sons of Re and acquire him as their patron … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Nile Empire – War in Heliopolis (d20 3pp); A History of Ancient Egypt meets Thor #332

PrinceofNothingReviews: Dungeon of the Unknown (Lotfp); Outlines & Hen-scratchings of greatness

Dungeon of the Unknown is Geoffry Mckinney’s follow up on his troublesome and strange Isle of the Unknown weird/mythological sandbox. The glades and pines of a bizarre, faded Atlantis are traded in for a minoan labyrinth, inhabited by all manner of strange, often nonsensical inhabitants. One should think the tighter focus of a Dungeon over … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Dungeon of the Unknown (Lotfp); Outlines & Hen-scratchings of greatness

PrinceofNothingReviews: Isle of the Unknown (Lotfp); Creative but frustrating

I have an odd attitude towards the works of Geoffry Mckinney. I think they are creative and that there is vision behind them but they tend to be implemented in such a fashion that this vision is difficult to realize in actual play. Carcosa had a great premise and fantastic imagery behind it but its … More PrinceofNothingReviews: Isle of the Unknown (Lotfp); Creative but frustrating
