This is a full one-level dungeon for my Five Free Cities setting. This version of the adventure is for ACKS, but I’ve run this for Dungeon Crawl Classics with almost no changes. Click to view the map! Link to a bigger version:   About the Dungeon The city of Viskan, near the free city […]

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 […]

I have a long-running setting for traditional kitchen-sink fantasy games. I call this setting the Five Free Cities, because that’s the basic starting area, even though the setting covers an entire continent. You can see a map of the setting here: I’ve been running the setting for my wife recently in Burning Wheel Gold […]

According to the news, Antonin Yelchin, the actor that played Pavel Chekov in the Trek reboot movies, died unexpectedly today. He was perfect for that role, and will be missed. Godspeed. Extra sad and strange because I’ve been working on a Star Trek fan supplement for the Stars Without Number OSR sci-fi RPG. Seeing […]

Often, when folks consider a new RPG, they want to know how combat works in a system they’re considering. I got a question on Facebook to this effect, and I thought I’d give you a taste of Invulnerable’s combat system here! Invulnerable is a bit of a crunchy system, and there are a lot of […]

Recently I’ve been working on a master encyclopedia and chronology of Earth-Omega, correcting some errata in the “fluff” chapters in Invulnerable, and expanding on the world information that will appear in Metagene. Have a look, and let me know if there are questions! Earth-Omega Encyclopedia Earth-Omega Chronology

Now that Invulnerable RPG: Vigilante Edition is out, I’m ready to announce that I’ve been working on a lighter, faster, kid- and con-friendly super hero game called Metagene. The Metagene RPG is also based in the Earth-Omega universe, but it will be a smaller product, both in page count (a little over 130 pages right […]
