I'm building an easy to use automated roller for the encounter tables from Frog God Games' "Cyclopean Deep" adventures.

It's a excellent sandbox set in a wonderfully strange part of the Under Realms. I love sandboxes and I love detailed and interesting encounter tables, but I dislike rolling stuff up in front of my players. So I wrote a way to turn it in to a super-quick click instead.

The Frogs have the 2-volume set of Cyclopean Deeps on sale for 19.99$ at the moment https://froggodgames.com/frogs/product/sw-clearance-cyclopean-deeps-two-volume-set/
So if the above sounds interesting then now's a great time to get it.

Here's the tool -
you can view by collections of tables: https://www.gregfarrell.org/deeps/collections
or you can see every single table, including the many sub-tables that make up the bigger tables - https://www.gregfarrell.org/deeps/tables

It shows stats, rolls random values like number of opponents for you, and in most places it'll give you a link to the more detailed entry for any monsters on the S&W SRD, as well as a page reference in Monstrosities or Tome of Horror Complete.

So far I've added the encounter tables for travel, but I'm working on the Darkfolk City of Izamne currently. Though as I never know where my players will go next, I may work on a different area of it next!

Some other OSR tools of mine, I only make these for things that I really like, and find significantly useful in play.:

Hi everybody :-)

I'm thinking about running a hex crawl in work and as I own the rather cool Frog God hex crawl chronicles by John Stater I was thinking about using them. Swords and Wizardry ruleset.

Has anyone used them and what level groups did you have? They look like death for a first level group, especially one that may not have many experienced OSR players. I could tone it down on the fly but if I'm having to do that I'd strongly consider just doing my own crawl using tables.

I generally prefer to start players at level 1, especially new players. I think otherwise they miss that magical experience of being killable with a single hit by a lame goblin! Something that everyone should experience in my opinion :-)

All being well, my first OST adventure 'Phaunt's Tower' will be available from RPGNow and DrivethruRPG on Monday 3rd September. I just have two or three tweaks to make and it will be live on Monday afternoon (GMT).

It's been hard work to get to this point and there are a lot of people I'd like to thank, but I'd like to extend a special thank you to Kevin Watson of Dark Naga Adventures for his help and advice.

I've decided to write, illustrate and release an OSR adventure and to try and stay with that old-school feel I had a play at an old-style print-mag inspired advertisement.
