Project Index


Sea Cave of the Selkie: By glaucus. A dungeon with 10 keyed rooms, 11 strange lichens, salt poppets, magic bat guano, 3 other magic items, cassowary skulls, and a sea witch who wants her father back by any means necessary. Full post here.

In The Light Of A Ghost Star. By Nate. A rules lite scifi game about martian scavengers exploring and looting a strange earth in the far far future. Full post here.

Offworlders. By Chris P. Wolf. A lightweight sci-fi game, a tasty melange of old and new-school in the tradition of the big, sandboxy classics that you can get up and running quickly. Full post here.

I did my best to follow the principles of

  • setting up a precarious situation for the players to knock off balance, with no assumptions about what they will do.
  • keeping all dungeon description relevant to the characters as things they can interact with, while being as tight and evocative as I can manage (so not very, then).
  • Enough information to make non-illusory choices, and real danger, generally telegraphed.

Get In The Light Of A Ghost Star

Ghost Star is my attempt to make an easy to run game mainly for one shot sessions with an OSR feel. The rules fit on about half a page and are easy to modify.  It's been great for introducing new players to the hobby and I've had reports from first time GMs telling me it was great first game to run.

Your paper choices are always on point. I love the look and feel of this.

Offworlders

A lightweight sci-fi game, a tasty melange of old and new-school in the tradition of the big, sandboxy classics that you can get up and running quickly. 

It's a free PDF on DriveThru

I made Offworlders because I wanted a relatively traditional sci fi game that I could grab and be ready to play in 20 minutes, but that had enough meat for campaigns of a dozen or so sessions. I used World of Dungeons, by John Harper, as a framework. Offworlders has the graduated success mechanic of a PbtA game, but the simplicity, hackability, narrative open-endedness, and potentially fatal danger-level of old school games.

POD Available this week!


Hey gang! I've just posted my submission for the Pamphlet Jam, a nice straight-forward dungeon crawl with goblins and hobgoblins. It should be compatible with most OSR systems - personally I usually use Knave, but I'd love to hear if you've played it in something else! The premise is that you've been captured by a hobgoblin who's discovered a demon-summoning temple and wants to turn it to his own purposes - once you've escaped your bonds, you can either slip out the front door and get the heck out of there, or try to take down all the baddies and track down some loot.

Axes & Orcs Compendium Vol 2 Science-Fantasy Potpourri Backgrounds for Troika!

A melange of 36 backgrounds for Troika!

https://axesorcs.itch.io/axes-orcs-compendium-volume-two-science-fantasy-potpour...

This is the raw text draft of a wide variety of Science-Fantasy backgrounds from 2.3 Pounds of Hallucinating Pudding to Void Squid for Troika! A lot of the backgrounds are references to 80s and 90s media, some more obvious than others. It's got Swordwolves and Space Rocks.  I got really inspired by Troika! so these backgrounds came to me.  The current raw text hasn't been numbered for a d66 table yet.
