[Review] Blood Moon Rising (LL OSR); Seamless

Last post I checked out Chronicles of Ahmerth by Peter C Spahn and I commented on its label of ‘dark fantasy,’ noting that the way CoA was written, it did not seem to differ overmuch from regular fantasy (which is certainly not without its share of horrific inhabitants). With Blood Moon Rising, the first adventure for Chronicles … More [Review] Blood Moon Rising (LL OSR); Seamless

[Review] Chronicles of Ahmerth (OSR LL); Down familiar paths

Last post I spoke about Burden of Proof or if you will Elfgame Market Value. Let’s examine that further in the context of a campaign setting. Taking into account a prior campaign setting exists, I pose that campaign settings must of necessity fall into two (admittedly arbitrary and blurry) categories; A campaign setting can either … More [Review] Chronicles of Ahmerth (OSR LL); Down familiar paths

[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] 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

Disclaimer: Sponsored content Kabuki Kaiser is starting to win my heart with his weird ass products. 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. From the first page … More [Review] Flower Liches of the Dragonboat Festival (OSR); An Opium-fueled Kaleidoscope of Decay, Folklore and Horror

[Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. III; A man needs an occupation

I remember vividly the first time I drank Lipton-ice tea. I was but a boy, and me, my parents and my brother had just finished a long walk through one of Holland’s few remaining natural forests. It was summer and quite hot. On the drive back we came past a promotional event, with some promoter … More [Review] Zweihander (WFRP retroclone) Pt. III; A man needs an occupation

I am proud to present the 2nd review request, a PWYW Lotfp 3rd party supplement. I give assurances to my other patron that the GREAT WORK is by no means neglected and continues on at a steady, if at times glacial, pace.
