Zak Smith’s “A Red and Pleasant Land” (http://www.lotfp.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=190) released recently, and it is beautiful and cool. It includes a new class for Lamentations of the Flame Princess and other OSR games, “The Alice”. The rules require very little tweaking for Dungeon Crawl Classics; here are the few changes that occur to me. Hit Points, Weapon […]

Review of “The Astounding Antagonists”

30 November 2014 | 8:52 | Invulnerable RPG | No Comments

The Astounding Antagonists is a super-hero, or rather, super-villain, novel by Rafael Chandler. Many will liken it to ‘Soon I Will Be Invincible’, and there are similarities, but also differences. It’s a fantastic novel from a very talented writer. Full disclosure: I’ve chatted with Rafael Chandler more than a bit on social media, and supported […]

Alien Artifacts: The Cosmic Thimble

6 September 2014 | 18:44 | Invulnerable RPG, Stats | No Comments

Super hero stories are full of all-powerful Maguffins that can’t be allowed to fall into the wrong hands … and inevitably do. It’s not much fun to say, “the bad guy got the thing, game over” in a roleplaying game, so it might be fun to have some rules for the thing. And while we’re […]

d30 Mutation Table for 5E and OSR

Every world can use Mutation Tables. Mutations can result from Sorcerers’ wild magic, they can be the dangerous inhabitants of a world after a nuclear holocaust, or they can be the results of magical experiments gone wrong. Roll 1d30 twice for each Mutant, to see what strange mutations they exhibit. Edit 18 April 2015: The […]

Robot Race for D&D 5E

16 August 2014 | 8:43 | D&D 5E, Races, Stats | No Comments

Robots are artificial beings constructed by advanced civilizations to do work judged too boring or too dangerous for fleshthings.

Others are leftover artifacts of some lost, ancient, high-tech civilization from millennia ago. Most robots are […]

Noodling with some 5E stuff

14 July 2014 | 22:52 | D&D 5E, Stats | No Comments

I was a hard sell on D&D Next. After 4th Edition, I had basically written off D&D. I was pretty sure Wizards had completely lost their way. Turns out I was wrong. They were smart enough to listen to the fans. After perusing some playtest materials about a week before the Basic Set dropped, I […]
