I'm so tired of everyone posting memes on how Aztec/ Spartan/ Viking/ whatever kids were murdering fanatics by age 6 while our kids are weaklings who talk and play and do unmanly stuff. The fact that we can raise children and not killers is a sign of our success, not our failure. Be thankful that you live in a society where kids can be kids, don't complain about it!

Well, I wouldn't since it'd my country men. Also, I wouldn't be able to read. :-)

But yes, basically iron age thugs.

Had a chance to run this sad adventure again this week. If you think it had a happy ending, well, you just don't know me very well...
I used this creature as the killer in a murder mystery I ran many years ago. I present it here in a very brief form -- feel free to add NPCs and clues as the case may be. Background How Anaf came to be will forever remain a m...

Two new deities join my ever-increasing pantheon -- wise Ganesha, the remover of obstacles and dread Cthulhu, the remover of everything. Note the special cameo by a kabba rat..

Great Cthulhu doesn't need to impress with size. Great Cthulhu is secure in his Elder Godly head-devouring powers.

I wrote a little avantgarde adventure inspired by some of the craziness of Naked Lunch and Santa Sangre. It's got talking insects, strange drugs, impossible geography and a conspiracy that makes no sense.

Hope you enjoy it :)

Wasn't meant as a critique, I love it, because for me it absolutely fits into the theme of madness. :)

Except for Frost Giants, who have a viking vibe, all giants in D&D are culture-agnostic. What cultures would you assign to Hill, Stone, Fire, Cloud and Storm giants?

I like the idea of hill giants being hillbillies.

This is by far the most popular (and darkest) 90 minute adventure for kids I ever ran, possibly because the characters themselves are kids who find themselves in a very unusual situation. I have written about this game several times in the past, but this is the first time I present the actual adventure.

Have fun, my friends!

This is the story of a high level character who spends the majority of the adventure with zero hit points.

Played it twice (first time was very brief, lol), but have run it several times. It's great as long as players know what they are getting themselves into.

Doing some cleaning in my blog I found this, an adventure fully designed by second and third graders. It's called the Elf Forest, despite not having a single elf in it. It does, however, has tons of ghosts, witches and insanely deadly traps. 
Today I had to give a 45 minute lesson to some 45 children... alone. Obviously, classic tabletop gaming was out of the question. Even the ship solution wasn't applicable. Instead, I decided to let the kids play DMs and create...

Comrades, I need your sage advice: I would like to create a system in which players can use money and influence to buy items that are worth regency. The player with the most regency after X rounds is the victor. The problem is that numbers are not my forte.

Are there any similar systems or board games I could cannibalize?
