    5E [5e] The Lichway - Old School Dungeon with new school rules.

    This is combining two things I want to have a go at playing. The 5th Edition rules, and an adventure from White Dwarf issue 9 (from 1978) called The Lichway, by Albie Fiore. If you read my WD reviews from a couple of years back, you'll have seen me raving about this adventure, which is a neat...

    Players in my games, I've not been updating much recently. This is because work has been pretty hectic of late and has pretty much left me drained of any energy to tend my games, especially as a couple of them have entered a combat phase which generally requires a but more effort to manage. But...

    One of the more evocative and intriguing parts of the 1st Ed Dungeon Masters Guide is in the appendices – Appendix N, Inspirational and Educational Reading, in which Gary Gygax sets outs his sources. I quote: Inspiration for all the fantasy work I have done stems directly from the love my...

    Dragonlance Revisited - ponderings for a setting reboot.

    I’ve always had something of a love-hate thing for the Dragonlance campaign. Bits of it really appeal to me, and others have never sat right. I originally ran the campaign back around the time it first came out, getting up to DL12 (Dragons of Faith) before the playing group went its separate...
