[Review] Frostbitten & Mutilated (Lotfp); Half-Baked & Dissassociated

[Campaign Setting/Hex Crawl] Frostbitten & Mutilated (2018) Zak S. (Lamentations of the Flame Princess) For levels 6+? When I read the premise for Frostbitten & Mutilated I probably would have bet money that I would have at least liked it a little bit. Black metal violence in a land of eternal winter? Check! Norse mythology? … More [Review] Frostbitten & Mutilated (Lotfp); Half-Baked & Dissassociated

[Review] The Black Gem (LL); Een goed begin is het halve werk…

[Adventure] The Black Gem (2015) Jeff Sparks (Faster Monkey Games) Levels 1 – 3 Sometimes when you read a premise alone you know an adventure is going to be awesome. Don’t get me wrong, writing a good adventure is not easy, but it takes a real bungler to mess up a great premise. “The PCs … More [Review] The Black Gem (LL); Een goed begin is het halve werk…

[Review] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (Lotfp 3pp); The mirthless laughter of the damned

[Adventure] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (2017) Evey Lockhart (In Search of Games) Levels 1 – 3 One thing I noticed about retroclones is that for all the pretensions of freshness and originality and new life brought to an old hobby, the plethora of retroclones has actually caused the libraries of these mostly setting-neutral … More [Review] The Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos (Lotfp 3pp); The mirthless laughter of the damned

[Review] Pinnacle (AD&D 3pp); Fool me twice…

[Adventure] Pinnacle (1986) Dan Greenberg (Mayfair Games Inc.) Levels 4 – 5 I’m starting to consider the possibility that maybe Role Aids wasn’t all garbage. After the promising but flawed Clockwork Mage and the unadulterated oldschool glory that was Deadly Power perhaps the late 80s were Role Aids’s glory days and its catalogue is in fact brimming with undiscovered … More [Review] Pinnacle (AD&D 3pp); Fool me twice…

[Review] The Stealer of Children (LL); Back to form

[Adventure] The Stealer of Children (2013) Peter C. Spahn (Small Niche Games) Levels 1 I have to admit I looked toward The Stealer of Children with no small amount of trepidation. After Atarin’s Delve I didn’t know if Spahn still had it in him. Another great man, I told myself, another great man brought low by fame … More [Review] The Stealer of Children (LL); Back to form
