  • Hell Hath No Furry (OSR) This module clocks in at 6 pages, with e.g. cover art as a small ~1/4 of a page artwork, so let’s take a look!   Just before you ask: No, this has nothing to do with furries or fursecution.   Rules-wise, this employs BECMI/labyrinth Lord rules and is intended for four to six characters of 3rd level. Conversion to other old-school rule-sets is pretty simple. While this nominally has ties to the Lands of Lunacy supplement, the reference may be removed easily, should you choose to do so. 60’ (20’) is the default MV, AC is descending and we get HD-ratings and saves based on certain classes – “F5” e.g. pertaining to saving like a […]

  • Stonehell Dungeon #2: Into the Heart of Hell (OSR) The second part of the massive Stonehell mega-dungeon clocks in at 162 pages, not counting covers, editorial and index.   The Stonehell dungeon books were donated by one of my patreon supporters for my edification, with the note that I can review them, if I’d like to. It’s time to also get the second part done, and once more dive deeply into this massive complex.   I assume familiarity with my review of the first part of Stonehell in this review; rules-wise, this is designed for Labyrinth Lord, but conversion to other OSR rules is pretty simple. More so than even the first part of this massive mega-dungeon, this book requires […]

  • Save Yourself From Hell (OSR) This adventure is intended as a one-shot for Alpha Blue and clocks in at 20 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page Kort’thalis glyph, 1 page editorial, leaving us with 17 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   Now, first things first: This is a scenario for Alpha Blue, the rules-lite scifi-porn-parody game by Kort’thalis Publishing; as such, this contains copious amounts of gonzo and raunchy themes. If the like offends you, then you may want to skip this one. None of the artworks herein sport exposed boobs or primary sexual organs, though – artwork-wise, this is a tame one. Now the module does feature sexual themes, swearing, etc., but it is, as […]

  • The Starship from Hell (system-neutral) This pdf clocks in at 44 pages, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 3 pages of advertisement, leaving us with 39 pages of content, though these are formatted for the A5 (” by 9”)-size, which means you can comfortable fit 4 of these pages on a given sheet of A4/US-letterpack paper, making printing this out pretty economical.   Okay, confession time. I am one of the weirdos that had more fun watching Primer than with all of the Star Wars franchise combined. I’m a fan of hard scifi, you know, the “boring, talky” movies sans kewl explosions and space battles. At the same time, I am a big fan of Dr. Who and can derive […]

  • Fat Goblin Traveler’s Guide to Hell This massive book clocks in at 58 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 1 page back cover, 1 page of advertisement, leaving us with 52 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   So, what is this? Well, a travel guide – after a one-page frame narrative that acts as a fluffy red thread suffusing the pdf, we begin with the conception of hell…and it is not like what you’d expect. Instead of envisioning hell as a traditional plane that is separate from the world it is tied to, this pdf envisions a concept of hell closer akin to AAW Games’ HEL in their Aventyr-setting. […]

  • Killer Clowns from Hell This pdf clocks in at 26 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, 1 page ToC, 2 pages of how to use/introduction, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 15 pages chockfull with content, so let’s take a look!   Even before I read Stephen King’s “It” or ever heard about a psycho called Gacey, clowns creeped me out – it was not full-blown coulrophobia, but rather an uncanny sense of unease – my infantile mind kept wondering what would make grown men paint their faces and generate antics. It is with some sense of self-conscious […]
