I've come to the conclusion that I am terrible at Homebrew fantasy settings. Sigh.

Yeah. Just don't be sad that you will never publish your mashup campaign. The measure that counts is success at the table. :)

How do you calculate the XP value of an NPC?
A 3rd level magic-user, equiped with a wand of fear for example.

Me too: level = HD and spell casting counts as a special ability.

Posted this earlier on my feed, but I figure some folks in this group might not have seen it. A little more love for Labyrinth Lord in the form of funny animal characters. Now in print!

Everything you said was true. My players did a hatchet job to a regenerating dragon, vengeance will be butchery. They should have used a professional.
Now one will be available.

Found a nice nice piece of art online and decided to build a lovecraftian creature around it.

The write-up is pretty basic I left a few details for individual DM's to tailor.

Plants and immunities

Do plant monsters have special immunities in Labyrinth Lord?

Ok thanks.
Reading an original monster entry in Dwimmermount made me think there was some generic plant monster immunities but I could not find them in LL.

I've been working on my own version of a Necromancer class for my campaign, and am putting the final touches on the spell list. I'm feeling particularly pleased with the following spell design and thought I would share it. For a bit of context, my Necromancer class has no other access to Wish-like powers, so this is intended to be somewhat limited. Feedback is welcome!

SINISTER BARGAIN
Level: 8
Duration: See below
Range: Unlimited (see below)

When first cast, this spell requires the presence of a higher order demon or a greater devil, who will be pleased to grant the caster an audience (so long as the creature is not otherwise being harassed). Through the agency of this evil power, the caster will be immediately granted a Limited Wish in exchange for a permanent 1 point reduction in charisma. Once this initial pact is sealed, this same evil power (who will thereafter remain on a “friendly” footing with the Necromancer) may be called upon for purposes of casting this spell and obtaining a Limited Wish. The actual presence of the evil power is no longer required for these subsequent castings, but the cost of 1 point of charisma must be satisfied each time. A careful record of these losses (which may not be recovered by any means – not even a Restoration spell) must be kept, for every time the caster is thereafter reduced to less than zero HP, he or she must make a saving throw vs. death with a negative penalty equal to the sum total of charisma points lost as a result of casting this spell. Failure means instant death beyond recall, as the Necromancer’s soul will have been irrevocably claimed by the power with whom the pact was concluded. No power or spell – not even Wish – will be able to restore such a character to life.

Cool! Well, if you feel like sharing any more spell you've come up with, I'd be very interested to read them :)

Not LL related, but of interest to gamers...

Starting today (9/8) and going through October 24th, Pizza Hut will be running a literacy project to help adults and children gain access to much needed materials to help in the fight against illiteracy. (Fact: 1 in 4 people can't read or write in America...) You can donate in increments of 1 dollar, 3 dollars (which buys 1 new book), 5 dollars (which buys new School supplies) or 10 dollars (Which buys a backpack of books...) and to sweeten the deal, for every 10 dollars you donate, you get 5 free bread sticks! You can call through your local pizza hut. I know that times are difficult and sometimes 10 dollars might be all that you have after paying bills, but if you can enrich someone's life through the gift of reading, isn't even just a dollar donation worth it? Donations given apply on a national, state and local level, so please help out
