Three Reviews: Creature Compendium, On the NPC, and Kefitzah Haderech
Inspired by a Lulu coupon, I did a little shopping. Old School Adventures™ Accessory CC1: Creature Compendium by Richard LeBlanc 92 pages, $10.96 I didn't especially feel the need for a monster manual— what's easier than making up a monster? But I wanted to...

Dice: Attribute Checks
I've been using attribute checks a lot, lately. My PbP game is  Beyond the Wall, which uses attributes and additive skill bonuses. At home, I've been playing Holmes with the kid, with straight attribute checks bolted on. Now, there is a powerful spartan app...

Scaffolds & Dragons: Races
I've been playing a lot with the kid, mostly by-the-book Holmes. I bough the kid his own copy of the  Blueholme Prentice Rules , which makes for a great introduction. It's clearly written, a nicely digestible amount for a kid to wrap his head around, and th...

Graphic novels have a lot more prizes than they once did, including literary awards that help validate the medium. Awards season is well upon us, and I've been way behind in noting some of the most important.

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 ...

My hero.
 
75 Years Ago Today: Will Eisner's masked crimefighter, the Spirit, first appeared June 2, 1940 in "The Spirit Section", the colloquial name given to a 16-page Sunday supplement, distributed to 20 newspapers by the Register and Tribune Syndicate and reaching five million readers during the 1940s. From the 1960s to 1980s, a handful of new Eisner Spirit stories appeared in Harvey Comics and elsewhere, and Warren Publishing and Kitchen Sink Press variously reprinted the feature in black-and-white comics magazines and in color comic books. In the 1990s and 2000s, Kitchen Sink Press and DC Comics also published new Spirit stories by other writers and artists.

The Spirit chronicles the adventures of a masked vigilante who fights crime with the blessing of the city's police commissioner Dolan, an old friend. Despite the Spirit's origin as detective Denny Colt, his real identity was virtually unmentioned again, and for all intents and purposes he was simply "the Spirit". The stories range through a wide variety of styles, from straightforward crime drama and noir to lighthearted adventure, from mystery and horror to comedy and love stories, often with hybrid elements that twisted genre and reader expectations.

The Spirit Section continued until October 5, 1952. Eisner worked as editor, but also wrote and drew most entries—generally, after the first few months, with such uncredited collaborators as writer Jules Feiffer and artists Jack Cole and Wally Wood, though with Eisner's singular vision for the character as a unifying factor.

Are your landscapes insufficiently weird? Have you tried adding eyeballs?
 
And with the completion of this weird landscape by +Joel Priddy...

ALL ART FOR EXPANDED PETTY GODS IS COMPLETE AND IN PLACE!!!

And, if my count is correct, it also makes it EXACTLY 500 pieces of art in the book. A few dozen of those are either creative commons or public domain images, which means about 450 or so illustrations were contributed by the OSR community (about 100 coming from Original Petty Gods, and the other 350 specifically for Expanded Petty Gods). 

1/2 round of proofing/correcting left, and the book is freaking ready!!!
