  • The Transient Bazaar (system neutral) Okay, so this pdf clocks in at 21 pages, 1 page front cover, leaving us with 20 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay, so what is this? It is, in essence, a bazaar-generator, and a pretty potent one. While nominally designed for the setting of Infinigrad (which I REALLY want as a hardcover!), the bazaar is particularly suited for cities such as Planescape’s Sigil, China Miéville’s Bas-Lag, Lost Spheres Publishing’s “City of 7 Seraphs” or similar high fantasy/weird metropolises with a serious weird vibe. It also works well for the strange subterranean races, just fyi.   In Infinigrad, the bazaar grows against the outer walls of the Bone Fortress, fueling the […]

  • The Towers of the Weretoads (OSR) This mini-adventure clocks in at 6 pages, with one page devoted to the front cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Okay, so are you familiar with One-Page-Dungeons? You know, where the map features also all the information on locales? This dungeon is depicted in that type of format – one page per level of the dungeon, which features basement, ground floor and tower/treetop-levels. Nice: The supplement uses red and black text and arrows to denote what’s what – when printing this, going color is a prudent way, as red notes rules-relevant aspects, saves, traps, etc. – all in all, this color-coding makes running the dungeon pretty […]

  • 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 […]
