New Species for Wormholes & Warpdrives RPG

22 May 2017 | 0:03 | Wormholes & Warpdrives | No Comments

Wormholes & Warpdrives (http://invulnerablog.imperfekt-industrees.com/?p=1009) is my still-in-development OSR-ish space opera RPG. It uses only d6s, and focuses a little on Star Trek-type space exploration and diplomacy and defensive battle. The minimal built-in setting is one I’ve used for years, but I only included a few of the species from the several campaigns I’ve run. Half or […]

Viskani, the Fallen Sorcerous Slave-Lords “I have the thing you requested. But don’t seek me here again, for I won’t be this way again in your lifetime. What’s that? Now that your need is met, suddenly you have questions, you worry and distrust? Don’t let it trouble your mind, for it troubles mine no longer. […]



Adventurers of the Five Free Cities

So, murderhobos, right? In any society, you’ve got your caravan guards and monster hunters, wandering merchants and clerics, and your scholars looking for lost lore. If they work together, there’s usually a reason; they were brought together by one of the cities to explore some ruins, or they’ve been commissioned to investigate some threat, or […]

About Religions The (Relative) Importance of Religion Religion is important to many people of Eparra … but not equally important. The Way of Nature makes few demands on its adherents, other than that they accept that they are part of a grand telluric cycle, the cycle of the seasons. The people of the Five Free […]



Life in Gwaethyr and the Five Free Cities

18 March 2017 | 8:13 | Five Free Cities, OSR | No Comments

The Five Free Cities are a traditional kitchen-sink fantasy setting, with influences from many D&D settings and Appendix N sources. It’s a post-apocalyptic mishmash of Bronze Age culture meeting invading aliens struggling to keep at least an Iron Age level of development. Magic is rare but powerful, and monsters are rare enough to be noteworthy […]

He returned with most of his men dead, driven insane by the secrets he had seen. Now he crouches in a tower in the Trackless Forest, […]

The Testament of the Last Viskani

Honored Ones, this parchment was found in the Thieves’ City, in one of the old bases for the Seal of Red and Black on the border of the Onyx Desert, not long-abandoned. It’s assumed that the text is not complete, for there are editorial remarks in the margins and whole sections have been struck out […]



Tempest Oracle (ACKS Class)

This is a class I needed for Adventurer Conqueror King System to run my Five Free Cities game. A few years ago a friend was going to run a Pathfinder game, and my wife kind of fell in love with the Oracle class, and made a character that was a multiclass Oracle/Monk. We’ve never gotten […]
