Try this out for solo gaming. Once again excellent work by +Shawn Tomkin.
Happy Sunday, everyone. Here's an Ironsworn one-sheet rules reference. It's meant as a handout for new players, or as a prompt to remember some of the mechanics that might be forgotten during play.

I'll have this up on the website with the 1.0 release in (hopefully) a week or so. Thanks!

Inspiring art #3 - 'Dragon Warriors' by Jon Hodgson
I allowed Dragon Warriors to pass me by in the 1980s because I was involved with Fighting Fantasy and other games. However, I saw the Magnum Opus book and immediately fell in love, and why? Because the Jon Hodgson cover was crying out ' Jonathan! This is yo...

I finally found some time to do a brief write-up of my solo "Maze of the Riddling Minotaur". I played a few sessions and managed to blog ​just a few encounters to get me started. More to come soon. Happy gaming everyone.

A week ago, I took a brief detour from my current Lion & Dragon #rpgamonth reading, to garner gaming ideas about the Fae kingdoms for a possible Dark Albion campaign. Lucky for me, I had the excellent Terrible Beauty (by Robert Schwalb), a Shadow Of The Demon Lord (SotDL) supplement, waiting for me on my bookshelf. Let’s explore the contents, shall we?

The pitch from the publisher…
“ Terrible Beauty presents tools for players and Game Masters to introduce faerie stories, mechanics, and themes into Shadow of the Demon Lord campaigns. Inside, you’ll find:
* The elf, hobgoblin, and pixie ancestries.
* An assortment of new paths such as the Avowed expert path and the eternal guardian and troll hunter master paths.
* The Fey tradition, and new spells for existing traditions.
* Overviews of several sample faerie kingdoms.
* New relics such as the Vorpal Sword and a new enchanted object table.
* New creatures ranging from the fair nymph to the foul jabberwock.
* A complete adventure for expert characters. “

I have run a SotDL mini story arc for my players in the past, and it is a great system that I really enjoy. So, does Terrible Beauty deliver? The answer is a resounding, yes!

The first few sections offer a quick background on the Fae worlds. Creating Fae creatures are next, followed by the expert paths for character advancement. The Faerie background tables and interesting things are worth the price of admission alone, but the master paths, filled with potential NPCs materials really get the brain working. A small list of unique magic spells nicely round-out this section.

Next, is a bit on the lands of the Faerie. Here again, you will find a full complementary setting for Dark Albion, easy to lift and transpose to any existing campaign. Pages 28-29 contain a great section of tables, interesting characters, strange sights, and weird events are tables that will provide tons of random spicy and exotic flavors to your Fae lands. The rest of the section deep-dives into the Fae lands of Alfheim, The Nameless City, Elysium and the Midnight Lands - Truly imaginative locales. Here too, you will find tables that will help you personalize and bring the Faerie world to the gaming table.

The Creature of the Faeries section brings a good assortment of varied powered Faerie baddies to life. One of my favorites is the Bean-Nighe, horrid Fae creatures designed to bring nightmares to life and defoul your players. One of the SotDL strong points, is the concise monster description, stats-block and special attack options that make GMing this game special.

Finally, the “My Father Left Forever” expert path adventure, ties-in all of the elements found in this book. I have not run the adventure, but it appears spot-on with the horror and weird elements that SotDL does really well. The art, the writing, and the book design are all solid. Terrible Beauty is a highly recommended supplement for any game system.

I think this game is primed for solo play. Let the mayhem begin...
I spent the last few days polishing this a tiny bit, expanding here and there but nothing major. Had someone correct hopefully most spelling errors. Now with 100% more Kaboom! If you get a chance to play it I would love to hear about your exploits in the wastes.
