This looks amazing! I can't wait to try it out.

I appreciate that!  While it will be posted at the Cairn website, I'd be happy to send you a copy of the markdown file as well.

Emiel, I'd like to write a conversion guide for running this with Cairn. Do you have any objections to that?  (The guide would include translations of the monsters and magic items, but would not be playable without access to the adventure itself.)

The PDF cuts off midway through row 7.  I closed and reopened it, works great.  That was odd.

Great looking set of spellbooks. Thanks for creating this.

Good stuff! Love the magic items and the new monster - they really underscore the flavor.  I'm looking forward to seeing updates to connect the couple of hooks that are currently left hanging.
It will be cool to see how you're using the response clock.

I'm excited to see what you do with this.  Good luck with #City23!

Oh, cool. I'll have to look into that.  I'm currently moving to Downtime in Zyan instead of a freeform approach I'd used up to this point.  Trophy Hearthfire sounds like another good resource to help me layer in a bit more color.

I really love this concept and the way you've laid it out. I play much more AD&D and OSE than BitD, and I'm adapting this idea to the way I run downtime in those systems. Thanks so much for sharing.

Beautiful map with a nice workable key, encounters, rumors, and factions. Just the thing a busy group needs to give a Mausritter hex-crawl a try.

I'm just loving this incursion. My gaming group at work is playing it during lunch on Fridays. We just finished the first ring. I'll post some updates as we play through it.

This is a great example of what Genius Loci can do for adventure settings, and a real enticement to play some Pariah.

Thanks so much! I hope it's useful for you.

Thanks! I'd love to hear how it goes.

This is a great, short version of Pariah. There are a bunch of great adventure-building/running tools packed into three pages of text.

That's awfully kind of you to say. Hit me up w/ a DM on twitter and I'll send you a PDF. You can certainly adapt a bunch of the stuff for other OSR games pretty easily.

These look great! If I ever end up running a steam-punk game, I know where to look.

I'll let you know.  I think my biggest thing is to figure out what would work best for them.

This looks really useful. It's got me thinking about making something similar for my players.

I still love this toolkit, I ended up suggesting it as a resource for my wife to use at rehearsals for a play she's the dramaturg for when she was asked to do a presentation on intimacy and boundaries for the actors and crew.

This looks like a fun tool to drop onto my table!

That's awesome!

Awesome! That will make a great tool even better.

Another great tool from Lazarus! Thank you!

Any chance of dropping jpgs or, better, pngs w/ transparent backgrounds that could be used on a VTT?

I love the simple write-ups of these powers. Great stuff!

This looks really cool!

I love the simplicity of this toolkit.  I'm going to try it at my table this week.

So very cool!

Keep writing and keep publishing!

Excellent system with a ton of flavor!

I've just released Magic by Candlelight, a collection of magic candles and candle-related magic items for old-school TTRPGs. It has more than two dozen unique items, with rules for mishaps that might occur if a PC tries to use more than one candle at a time.

This supplement is licensed for re-use at your table or in published works. I've posted the original markdown format, so it's easy to re-use. There are also epub, HTML, and pdf versions available.

Take a look:

Lots of little hooks in here to make collecting any of the three bounties a solid little game between bigger jobs.

Clear, cute, creative! We ran a one-shot of this in my regular gaming group and everyone loved it.  I need to play this again.

I love that Chris did this as an example of the (minimal) tools required to build an accessible adventure.  It's a great motivator for me.

Good set of tools here. Going into my toolkit for sure.

I'll second this. the blue is less than ideal to read, and the places where the text overlaps the illustrations are worse.

Still, awesome zine. I can't wait to see more.


I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this!

This looks like an awesome alternative to kick off a Mausritter campaign!

Thanks for posting this! It's a great-looking little game.  It's going to make an appearance at our table for a one-shot sometime soon.

Cool location, and nice NPCs.  Thanks!
