More Interesting Mortality – Nobilis RPG

I’ve been writing lots of campaign notes in preparation for someday running the Nobilis RPG. It’s still hypothetical because my regular group is deep in the middle of playtesting the DM’s custom rule system at the moment. So it’s at the whim of whenever he starts feeling the DM Burnout bad enough to take a […]

Updates from the Skull & I

So the Swords & Sorcery book is coming along slowly. Just finished a story and started a new one. I’m at around 74 pages of material so far, which is a lot for me since I tend to write “super short” short stories. Well, with the exception of The Jarioth Cycle which I wrongly consider […]

The Laws of Heaven

More Nobilis stuff. I haven’t really gotten too far into designing Heaven or any of the other Upper Worlds yet. One of the rules in the book is that those who see the beauty of Heaven are compelled to serve it. Here are four derivative Laws that naturally arise from that.   The Laws To […]

Nobilis and Rex Mundi

So, we’ve been talking about Nobilis and campaign building for it. I’m pulling from a lot of sources because I have several multiverses to fill up with content before the game is ready. The scope of the game is just that big. Next up is the brilliant comic Rex Mundi. Alternate history, France taking Germany’s […]

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. It’s mind-bending, kinda like trying to wrap your head around a cloud that has a shark with lasers for eyes hiding inside it. I’m not even going […]

Sabbatic Spirit Flight (Magic-User Spell)

Sabbatic Spirit Flight Level: 1st Duration: Up to 12 hours (See Below) Range: Touch Area of Effect: One broom (though a distaff, pitchfork, pig, or goat can be used in a pinch). Effect: The magic-user prepares an ointment containing hensbane, belladonna, poppy, monkshood, hemlock, and mandrake. They anoint their broom and themselves with the noxious […]

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 […]
