Grappling Rules, Compared
I've been noodling with an Ancient Greek seacrawl. And you can't have Ancient Greeks with Pankration, and you can't have Pankration without grappling rules. There isn't a standard OSR approach to grappling. Holmes and   B/X don't address it, and AD&D presen...

Alternate Character Class Round-Up
Apropos nothing, here, from the great swirling surfeit of alternate classes available on the Internet, are a few I'm especially fond of. Timothy Ide Delving Deeper: The Illusionist (free pdf) No shortage of contenders out there for the spell-casting variant...

Bochen
This is my kid's D&D character: a 5th-level spell-casting griffon named Bochen. I love this guy for the same reason my kid is starting to cool on him—he's taken a lot of damage and has the scars and missing limbs to prove it.

That is so rad. I love the garden fork prosthetic claw.

Perhaps he needs weird magical prostesis to retire the kiddo's enthusiasm?

Agnostic Clerics
Faith and Doubt In a supernatural environment, parsimony insists that gods exist. But that doesn’t mean that your god exists, or that it likes you, or is listening to your entreaties. So, let’s keep the efficacy of prayer mostly secret. Only do this if it’s...

Dig. Especially useful in Solomon Kane-esque games where doubt and righteous warfare are explicitly part of the theme.

Scaffolds & Dragons: Trainers
Some trainers to go with my Training Levels for the Kid's Game. I'm thinking that you need to make arrangements with a trainer every level for Levels 1-4, and every other from 5-9, and you're pretty much self-educated from there. Durgan the Bear Actually a ...

Let's Ride!
Just had a fun evening with the kid, using  +Benjamin Baugh 's B/X supplement: At 5th Level, Everybody Rides. The idea is that, just as you get a fancy house when you enter upper-level domain-style play, you get an epic mount when you reach the point where ...

Ashbot received Best Science Fiction Short at the Berlin Short Film Festival!
Apparently Germans love robots, or possibly the depths of outer space, because my film The Long Slow Flight of the Ashbot just won Best Sci-Fi short at the Berlin Short Film Festival.  I'm glücklich!

Bug Collectors In the Necropolis
An additional ecosystem for +Arnold K. 's  Bug Collector class . Levels 1-3 roll 1d10. Levels 4-5 roll 1d12. Levels 6-8 roll 1d14. Higher levels, you need to make something up, I guess. Ain't no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones. Coll...

Scaffolds & Dragons: Distances and Encounter Awareness
Distances I don't use miniatures, and rarely even use maps, so I don't have much use for measuring distance in feet or inches or what-have-you. Here are the descriptive units of distance I do use instead: 1. Touch/Grapple         Combat: only small weapons ...
