For Ryuutama -

While perusing the OSR blog Elfmaids & Octopi, which is filled with all sorts of useful random d100 tables for various games, I came across this random table which I thought would be perfect for providing random flavor and possible encounters when your Travelers come to a village:

To herald the new Starships & Spacemen 2e G+ Community, here are some sketches I made while designing my own take on the Space Fleet officer uniform. And an alien Confederation member.

Paul Weber created a lovely set of Condition Cards that you can find available for free download at SageAdvice.eu. However, I wasn't crazy about the original illustration for the Grappled condition card. In order to help avoid an outbreak of tentacle hentai discussions at the game table, I Photoshopped some hide raiment onto the hapless barbarian.

EDIT: Here's the link for this modified card image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1z0brtHQ43hUnhuLTgwa3Y3eHc/view?usp=sharing

This is a pretty great article about using monotheistic faiths - specifically, Catholic Christianity - in traditional (A)D&D campaigns.

Again, not "historical," strictly speaking, but...

Here is some more musical inspiration for your game, if you need something that sounds right but wouldn't mind something a bit more familiar... I went through Postmodern Jukebox's collection on YouTube and found some of their 1920s-style covers of modern songs. This is pretty much the only way I can stomach listening to a Justin Bieber song (which, actually, is one of my favorites on this list).

Love Yourself - Justin Bieber https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1QNhIAlP8M
Bad Romance - Lady Gaga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCTOpdlZJ8U
Paparazzi - Lady Gaga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL4kLheuOwk
Young and Beautiful - Lana Del Rey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aNCBzax8Ec
Fancy - Iggy Azalea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzPGzGUNZbs
Never Forget You - Zara Larsson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4PEN9AU_tM
Wiggle - Jason Derulo/Snoop Dogg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDl9SDd1FJY
Hey There Delilah - Plain White T’s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IjiM7KjOzs
Thrift Shop - Macklemore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Cnm0tdkJEU
Don’t You Worry Child - Swedish House Mafia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGDQd0xJU9g
Gentleman - Psy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iabyEebfCc
and, of course, Gangsta’s Paradise - Coolio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rve03u7oEvI

…and this isn’t PMJ, but it’s also really good:

I don't know if this counts as "historical setting material," as you can guess from this page, but I just discovered a webcomic called Pepperpot Piper, by Joseph Kelly, which is set in the 1920s. As you can see here, the artwork is AMAZING, and the story (as far as I've read) features plenty of period slang.

I didn't see it in your archives, so I'm surprised you guys haven't yet done Ryuutama. It's been described as "Hayao Miyazaki's Oregon Trail," all about Travelers taking Journeys while being observed and subtly aided by a GM dragon character called a Ryuujin. Given that I'm about to start running a game for a friend, I would love to hear your take on it!

So my friend read an article about Ryuutama and when I told him I've had a copy for quite a while, he started clamoring to play. This will be my first time playing it, too, and I'm pretty excited, especially since the feel is so different from things I've run before.

I think I'm going to take the rulebook's advice and run with a Midori-Ryuu for my first tale. I started out by making a sketch of her, since I wasn't entirely sure what she would be like when I began. As I drew, I thought about what elements should be present in her design, and what kind of personality she might have. And so Sirocco came to life!
