Here's my submission for the folklore game jam on ! Beyond the Fence, Below the Grave: a tabletop rpg inspired by Old Norse magic, myth, and religion

Download it here:

I love old-school D&D's use of the term "Magic User." It's such a diminutive way to describe a magician. They're not in the same league as a Wizard or a Sorcerer. They're barely playing the same game.

It leaves room for Wizards to be a sort of dragon. Beasts of terrible power and inscrutable desires.

Have you all missed by D&D blog? Well, I'm blogging on it right now...

Garm Bays Loudly is a new scenario for Beyond the Fence, Below the Grave. It's about a fjord, a forest, a shipwreck, and treating your neighbors nicely. Download it nooow.

Garm bays loudly is about the violent economics of the Viking age, the terror of winter, a slave revolt, respecting your neighbors, and the dangers of not loving your children enough.

Does anybody want to read about the fairy tale inspired D&D campaign I've been running? Now is your chance!

If you've ever been interested in the DIY RPG scene, but not quite known where to get started, here's a handy list of resources I put together:

New post! For the last few months, I've been playing D&D using the original GLoG, here are my reflections on the parts of the original rules which don't get a lot of attention.

I am looking for a webcomic to read.

Big fan of long running slice of life stuff. Something * Positive is my #1, but also enjoy the heck outta Questionable Content, Girls with Slingshots, and the David Willis oeuvre.

Good writing > good art today. Long archives are a plus.

Boosts requested.

It's Friday and we all know what that means! Time to follow, follow, follow and NEVER ARRIVE! #followfriday

Gasper the Aged - Follow this bent stick of a person to hear stories about "why this part of town always smells like onions (it's 'cause of kids)" and how "buildings used to be taller" as their head sinks to the ground

The Multi-Limbed Drowning Array - Elegantly designed, worth following to the pond's bottom ... if that's your thing.

Nobody else - That's right. We said it. S'official.

Hate that the stores are already putting up anticoagulant socks that we're supposed to hang by the fireplace for Dracula.

It's only just November!

my players finally gave in to desperation and ate the party member who has been transformed into a pig

Let me be clear, it is the players' fault if somebody dies or is turned into a frog. If they had paid better attention or asked better questions they would have known that the witch was only kidnapping children because of her fear of aging.

I have to defend the usefulness of a petroleum consultant in a magical 14th century setting to my DM but I'm up for it.
