Last month I decided to pull the trigger on the Old School Essentials Advanced books. They’re rather impressive.
I’ve always been a role playing game fan. But I always felt something with was missing in computer RPGs.
One of the things with which GM’s will sometimes struggle is creating decent story hooks to launch players into their adventures. This is where Lands of Legends-Mundane Areas/Encounters, by Axian Spice, offers some help.
I’ve really been enjoying running Basic Fantasy RPG for the Bearfoot Marauders. The game is light rules, even if there are more charts, and things move pretty fast.
My first experience with Dungeons & Dragons was with what is now known as the Moldvay-Cook Basic and Expert Sets, and the Isle of Dread was always a stand out.
Last Friday I recounted the story of how the Bearfoot Marauders came together as a party. Last night we had our second session… and things were interesting. The party marched back to town 1 and made their way back to The Drunken Fish just as darkness was setting in. The party was greeted as people of significant, and Finwhat muttered, “OK, we are not telling them we only hit a toe.” Gibeon, who had been brought down to two hit points in their bear encounter, entered the main room and was treated with something he wasn’t used to—respect. The dwarf was not, however, able to enjoy this respect because he was in shock 2. While people patted him on the back, Gibeon just stared off into space.
