Hot damn, +Greg Gillespie is going to slap down another megadungeon in the Barrowmaze tradition.
But wait, there is more! You can also get the undead hell hole known as Barrowmaze along with the Forbidden Caverns and have years of OSR style goodness.

Special note for you American types the project is in CDN dollars, that saves you about 30%. Inversely, we Canadians will not need to spend that additional 30%. And last but not least all you fine folks living everywhere else on this planet will also enjoy a substantial currency based saving from this project .

A fantastic new MEGADUNGEON for Labyrinth Lord and other Old School Role-Playing Games. Designed by Barrowmaze author Greg Gillespie.

You can now purchase Cults of Chaos on Amazon, as well as Lulu, and (on PDF) RPGnow.

http://therpgpundit.blogspot.com/2016/07/cults-of-chaos-is-now-available-on.html
So, Cults of Chaos, the OSR supplment for creating awesome medieval-authentic chaos sects (and lots of other stuff, like familiars, mutations, faerie-elves, alchemical elixirs, astrological star-cults, etc), is now available ...

Cults of Chaos is now available for purchase! Get it on RPGnow (pdf only, for now) or Lulu (the awesome softcover). Check out what early reviews have already said is the best book on fantasy/medieval cults in the #OSR and maybe ever!

It's system neutral OSR, and totally suitable for Labyrinth Lord fans!

http://therpgpundit.blogspot.com/2016/07/cults-of-chaos-has-been-released-check.html
So, as of last night, Cults of Chaos is now available for purchase! You can get it at RPGnow on PDF (for $7.50), or get the awesome looking softcover on Lulu for $14.95! In a few days, it should be available on Amazon. Now,...

Rules question:
Declaring your movement and or action before initiative is rolled feels odd to me. It's counter to the way most games are set up. There must be a logical reason but I'm not experienced with LL yet. Can anybody clue me in?

Personally, I don't know anybody who runs this part of the game as written. It's interesting, and it makes a certain kind of sense, but in practice, I find it easier and more natural (if perhaps less verisimilar) to just let each side determine who goes first naturally.

It doesn't break my immersion to do it like that; I view it more as a simulation of party synergy. Any group of adventurers confident enough in their skills to brave the dark places of the world would presumably do so after learning to operate as a team to some extent - they'd get wiped out in three seconds flat otherwise. To return to +Gus Badnell's example, I believe the fighter would be keeping an eye on the wizard and adjusting her tactics accordingly. You'd do that if you wanted to stay alive.

More importantly, though, the system runs more smoothly in play and doesn't lead to cheap deaths. Initiative itself is a very game-y convention, so I don't think it's especially important to maintain verisimilitude in that regard. But that's me.

New Monster: Sentry Plaque. An eye and a frame that guards libraries and places of knowledge. Written for LL, but can used in any OSR game.

Whether on PDF or in Print (with a 20% discount right now!) it's a great time to pick up Cults of Chaos!

Fleshed out, unique, realistic medieval gritty-fantasy cults, with tons of random tables! Rules for mutations, authentic medieval-style 'familiars', alchemical elixirs, and much more!

http://therpgpundit.blogspot.com/2016/07/cults-of-chaos-hot-seller-on-pdf-and.html
So 24 hours in, Cults of Chaos on RPGNow has sold well enough to end up on the Hot Sellers (main and 'small press'), in spite of only being available there on PDF (for now). Meanwhile, right now over on Lulu you can g...

New Product from DYS Games

The Thaumaturge is a new take on magic for your OSR compatible game!

Bored of the certainty of Vancian magic? Want your magicians to act more like the magicians of fiction and lore, where magic is risky and requires the caster to actually use time and tools to increase their chance of success? Then the thaumaturge is for you!

A complete 20 level class compatible with any OSR game, the thaumaturge replaces the standard magic-user. Their magic is difficult to use, often time consuming and inconvenient, but dripping with flavor. A bad roll can have disasterous consequences, while a good one can cause tremendously potent results.

Learn any spell of any level you can find, but will you be able to cast such complex magic or will you destroy yourself and your allies in the attempt?

Also included are 6 new magic items and 2 new spells to use with the class.
