+Patrick Stuart Hope you can enjoy the success of MotBM in some way and get settled with the other stuff. Thanks for talking honestly about life - makes me feel less unusual.

Once again, it's Random Table Tuesday again over at the Tower of the Silent Sorcerer. This week we have a d100 table of crypts, tombs, and mausoleums for the next time you need somewhere for your undead to hide.

For those who bought the bundled Maze of The Blue Medusa directly from the Satyr Press website (powered by Gumroad). How was the PDF download made accessible? After many glowing reviews, and my own appreciation for the authors involved, I doubled down and picked up MOTBM. Kind of figured once the order was processed fully they will send an email link -- or do they ship a download voucher with the printed book itself? Thanks!

Here's a summary of Bryce Lynch's rules and tips for writing and running adventures.

Do I personally scrupulously follow all 30 of these principles when I'm behind the Judge's screen? Nope. Do I try my damndest to do so? You betcha.

A lot of the guys working in superhero comics then had spent quite a bit of time doing monster comics in the 50s.

Well they finished off Gardag. What happens next, I have no idea.
Managed to remember to bring my notes this morning for the session. While its probably a really dumb idea to drink & DM, I do that. The funny thing is that this campaign is entirely made up off the top of my head. So you k...

Lesserton and Mor is an overlooked OSR gem, and one of my favorite gaming products period.

It covers Lesserton, a "dirty British fantasy" sort of city that bills itself as an adventurer's paradise, and Mor, the ruined, open-air megadungeon next door that's the reason for that billing.

Lesserton is fully described. Mor is a megadungeon you build yourself, either in advance or on the fly, through random generation.
Lesserton and Mor, written by Joel and Jeff Sparks of Faster Monkey Games, is a product that I don't think has received its due. It's a fantastic, unique, flavorful, and versatile sourcebook for a premade city and its neighboring open-air megadungeon, and it's incredibly cool.

Spelljammers are so 1389; these days we use ether vessels. They don't damage to lower astral viberational planes and alert the wasteland wizards and sensitives to their presence. These tapes keep resurfacing from stashes of the Ancients the adventurers keep finding. Various wasteland inquisitors have made it their mission to stamp out such pre holocaust drivel.

As a prelude to the upcoming 1 mile hex map of the Broken Lands some Player maps, their characters might buy if travelling through the Broken Lands.
These are typical merchant maps that players may buy in Corunglain or Trintan for only 100 gold pieces a piece.
It is the most complete map merchants have access to. in 1 mile hexes.
The hefty 100 gold price is normal for maps made in dangerous areas.
All details are as seen from the Trail, (often with farseer glasses), or by brave scouts who ventured somewhat from the path.
Other details not described as clearly are assumed by logic or divination.
The map will be copied by scribes on paper and delivered in a leather tube for carriage (waterproofed tubes cost an additional 15 gold)
It is roughly 1 foot by 2.5 feet long
including tube it weighs 15 cn (tube 10cn).

Some typical merchant info is added.

Frontier Forts of Kelnore is another fantastic sandbox tool from Judges Guild, offering up modular fort elements, sample dungeons, and a delightful fort generator.

I took that generator for a spin, and as always wound up with a place I wouldn't have come up with on my own -- which is the magic of Judges Guild.
I love Judges Guild's Campaign Hexagon Sub-System for its flavor, random generators, and sandbox utility, and although I've finished rolling up sample Campaign Hexagon entries for every book in the series, I saved an “honorary member” for last: Frontier Forts of Kelnore.

This is something crazy I came up with for my Sicarii cult I created. This is a dance called the Tandallum, the mechanics and concept behind it is from the wave form of an electron orbiting a Hydrogen nucleus. As usual this is statted for LotFP/AD&D, please let me know what you think!
The concept and the mechanics of the Tandallum are based on the probability mechanics of electron clouds surrounding the nucleus of an atom. While probability densities can be incredibly complex, the probability density of a ...
