  • The Level 1 Creature Generator (OSR) This pdf clocks in at 10 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin with instructions, which are simple enough – you see, each of the tables here contains a matrix of 4 columns and 10 rows – these generally span 2 pages per table. You roll a d4 to determine the column, a d10 to determine the row. Simple, nice. With the entries differing in density and complexity, the respective font-size varies from what looks like regular sized 10 or 11pt (not good at differentiating those) to pretty large letters, so if you’ve got issues […]

  • Derelict Generator (system neutral) This pdf clocks in at 11 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 9 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   This creator is pretty simple and so are the instructions: You take 1d4, 4d6, 1 d8, 2d10, 1d12 and 1d20. That’s the baseline  for big ships, though you can use the system to create smaller or more massive derelicts by adding or subtracting dice.   Okay, now that you have the dice ready, you drop them on a standard sheet of paper – US letterpack or DIn A4 both work. Notate where each die lands. Remove the die from the paper and note, in its place, the die size […]

  • Borderland Provinces: Journey Generator (system neutral) This supplement clocks in at 22 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, 3/4 of a page blank, leaving us with 16 1/4 pages of content, so let’s check this out!   One central component of any sandbox campaign worth its salt is the component of the journey – whether because wine and wenches await in a far-off place or because something needs to be delivered – whether a secret missive, a caravan or something altogether different. The problem that a GM does have here is that it is hard to come up with meaning full journeys – enter this book and its […]
