    Comparative review of Mutant Crawl Classics and the Umarican Survival Guide (Long as hell)

    So within a couple months of each other, we’ve been blessed with not one, but two different post-apocalyptic games/settings for Dungeon Crawl Classics. As a backer of both, and having just recently gotten the finalized PDF of the Umarican Survival Guide (USG) I figured I’d do a side by side...

    Retrospective on a 8+ year long AD&D campaign.

    It's been ages since I've posted here but got to writing today and figured I' share. Some folks here (mostly from CM) might remember me but D&D and I have sort of gone in different directions for the past few editions so I haven't been around much. If you are interested in sticking around for...

    Bouncing ideas for my Dwimmermount campaign.

    So I've been running a Dwimmermount campaign for about a year now. Made the switch to DCC from B/X a couple months ago One of the things I've been doing is trying to introduce antagonists from outside the dungeon as much as the enemies they encounter inside. The idea is that this will give...

    Idea for a magic gee-gaw.

    So my PC's are about to encounter a their first wizard antagonist and I'm trying to think of some sort of magic item I could give him to spice things up a bit, perhaps even provide a small side quest while they try and figure out how it works. I've been converting Dwimmermount to DCC, and for...

    Recruiting Dwimmermount the Second Expedition.

    So... After over a year my Dwimmermount PbP game has finished the first expedition into the dungeon. That said, with PbP's being what they are a few players have dropped out, so I'd like to throw open the door to further recruitment. Coles notes on PC creation. All PC's joining at this...

    B/X (Labyrinth Lord) Goblin Class

    I've been running a Dwimmermount campaign as a PbP and one of the things I wanted to include was the Goblin PC class as it was cut from the Dwimmermount release. At any rate, here is my take on Goblins. The idea is that they sort of combine a thief and a magic user (more specifically an...

    In which I ramble about coins and making treasure cool.

    One thing I've always enjoyed doing is mucking about with coins in my campaigns. They are something that every PC uses, but very little thought is given to them other than a number on the character sheet. Coins and money in general mean a lot to a society and it's always felt like something...

    Gauging Interest Emperor of the Fading Suns PBEM

    So a couple months back I got bit hard by the nostalgia bug for a game called Emperor of the Fading Suns. Specifically I've been playing Emperor of the Fading Suns with a mod (that is still in active development) called Emperor Wars, which is itself built on the old Reality mod. At any rate...

    Emperor of the Fading Suns. Anyone remember this?

    I got bit by the nostalgia bug a while back and dug this out of the closet. I'd forgotten how much damn fun it is. Of course the original release was buggy as hell but I found an absolutely amazing mod called Emperor Wars where some guy has (in addition to bugfixes and AI improvements) slowly...

    Hell of a haul at my FLGS

    So since I've stopped keeping current with D&D (I'm in year 7 of a B/X AD&D mashup campaign) I've been making fewer and fewer trips to my FLGS. I generally just go once every few months to check out their used section for old Judges Guild things, old modules, or extra copies of the B/X rules (I...

    Dwimmermount IC:

    Midgrim and Gargrim: The two of you have been living and working within the dwarven ghetto of Adamas for several years. Though there are only about 100 dwarves within the city it has never been difficult to find work, and the Despot of Adamas has always treated your people fairly. When rumors...

    Dwimmermount OOC

    So... here is the OOC thread for Dwimmermount. If you want to start posting your characters here that'd be cool. I think we actually have everyone's PC's in the recruiting thread, so I'll start as soon as everyone checks in. House Rules: recovery from death PC's die when they hit 0 HP, but...

    Gauging Interest in a Dwimmermount adventure.

    so we have two dwarves and a thief so far. Still need a couple folks. So it's been... a long ass time but I finally have the first proof of Dwimmermount (the rather infamous kickstarted dungeon that has taken years beyond it's expected release) sitting on my harddrive now. It's pretty effing...

    Help me run a campaign for a bunch of 12 year olds.

    So I'm going to be starting a lunch hour D&D game for a bunch of my 6th grade students. None of them have played before, they're mostly 1st or 2nd generation immigrants, That said, a fair number of them do enjoy fantasy novels, anime shows and the like. I'm going to be running Labyrinth Lord...

    Gauging interest in an Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperboria PbP game...

    Pretty much what it says on the tin. Just curious to see if anyone might be interested in playing. For those who don't know AS&SH is a retroclone in the same vein as Dungeon Crawl Classics or Lamentations of the Flame Princess (rather than a true clone like Labyrinth Lord or OSIRIC. It's...

    The City State of Barasbor, A DCC campaign.

    Squatting like a malignant toad where the Bay of the Dreamer meets the Desert of Gol-Than lies the city of Barasbor. An ancient city, Barasbor was founded by the starfarers long before the cataclysm that cut off the world from the other planets So I decided that DCC would be the perfect system...

    This is one of the coolest OSR things I've seen in a long time.

    And amazingly enough I'm not talking about Dungeon Crawl Classics :eek: I noticed a link to this blog posted on Knights and Knaves and holy crap what a find. To put it quickly it's a blow by blow account of an OD&D campaign running between 1975 and 1977. It's pretty crazy, you have adventures...

    a different take on Moradin, and dwarven religion in general

    So I just started playing a dwarven fighter/cleric in a 2nd ed campaign so I decided to write up some thoughts on how dwarves might view religion. I wanted to do something to make it distinct from the other D&D deities but keep it well grounded in something that 'works' for D&D. The closest...

    Rejiggering armour for a late darkage tech level. (2nd ed)

    so I've been playing with the 2nd ed weapons and armour lists to make it better fit my campaign which is set in the late dark ages into the early middle ages, so the tech level is somewhere in between 950ish and 1100. It's no exact but I mean hey, it's D&D. At any rate, here is what I've come...

    Thinking of returning to AD&D 2nd ed... Advice needed.

    Ok, so about a year ago or so I came to the realization that I simply didn't care for 4th ed, or 3rd, for that matter. No biggie I figured, I'll just play Shadowrun, I like that. Now however I'm starting to feel the urge to scratch that Fantasy itch, and I've come to the realization that of...
