The Devil Has an Autograph Book

I just re-wrote one of my really early stories. It’s about a burned out Star Trek-esque actor suffering the horrors of having to survive by making convention appearances. Then the Devil appears and wants his autograph. It’s posted here.

Nobilis, OSR, and Hyper-Dimensionality

Some cosmological world-building for my theoretical “sometime-in-the-future” Nobilis campaign. I will convert things into OSR terms as I go to see how bat-shit crazy this can get. I like the idea of taking a game where the players run demi-gods and trying to apply the same concepts to a strictly mortals-only, 20th-level-is-the-end-of-the-line type game like […]

Nobilis & Sharne’s Clockwork Market

Nobilis. I’ve wanted to play this game for a long time. I’ve wanted to understand it since I got the third edition and started trying to understand it.

The Harry Clarke Community Project

So I should probably explain what the last post was. Emmy Allen over at Cavegirl’s Game Stuff has purposed a community based RPG monster manual where every entry is inspired by a Harry Clarke illustration. Once it’s done she will collect them all and put the book up on DTRPG as a free PDF. I […]

Anti-Heros, Villains, & Evil Sorcerers

I often want the monster to win in the end. I am often disappointed.  Universal monster movies especially adhere to this dynamic (the real ones, any Mummy movie that’s in color is shit). The “romantic lead” hero has zero personality and is only defined by his passionate and complete love for the white damsel in […]
