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 ...

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: Class/Training/Advancement
For the Kid's Game, I've decided to ditch Class in favor of á la carte Training Levels. This is blatantly derived from  +Daniel Sell 's "Adventurer" rules . Level     XP              Saving Throw 0             0                         16 1             100 ...

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 ...

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.
