Lamentations of the Flame Princess (US Store) just released a handful of new titles. For virus-related reasons he’s unable to ship to a few countries, including Canada. If you’re up here and want any of the new books I recommend you go through a freight forwarder. Going through a forwarder will add shipping costs… Read more »

THESE GUYS GET IT That is all.
[This one’s for Darren.] A number of years ago I found this fig online. And immediately bought one. You can find him over at Black Cat Bases. (The bookcase is old HeroClix, from their Indoor Adventure Kit.) After some play he went to languish in the back of my cabinet for, well, years. Then about… Read more »
Again With The ’80s
Feast on this triptych! What a setting! Twilight: 2000, Cyberpunk and High Colonies were among my favourite games of the ’80s and early ’90s. I never got around to layering them together in any formal way. But I sometimes — even now — fever dream about what could have been. Then I watch Outland.
About that Bar Fight
I’ve made some headway in my ongoing mission to get into a Spaceport Bar Brawl. But first, let’s talk about the fantasy fights I’ve found. White Dwarf — bless ’em — have been particularly keen. They published four from Feb ’79 to July ’98. First, naturally, we have First Age D&D: Print the above brawl’s… Read more »

But check it out, they can be arranged in sequence. ACT I, The Charge: ACT II, Lance In, Sword Out: In addition to depicting… Read more »
Last year I made it to number 11 in the final round of Tenkar’s Tavern’s OSR Superstar Competition. That being a thing long over-and-done I thought I’d release my entries into the wild. So, here.

Honesty is the best policy
I recently realized something about the shenanigans of published RPG articles, modules and supplements that throws off my various 3d6-in-order, etc. converters for Mutants and Death Ray Guns and Song of Blades and Heroes. The characters in those RPG books were statted to be the class the writers wanted them to be for the story… Read more »
Time Gone Awry
Thoughts on Lewisian, Vancian, etc. time distortion in alternate planes and pocket universes, version 1.5: Roll a d7: 1 = a second; 2 = a minute; 3 = an hour; 4 = a day; 5 = a week; 6 = a month; 7 = a year. here (i.e., the mythic underworld, faerie holt, etc.) is… Read more »
