Free fillable character sheet for the Terra Incognita RPG - the #FudgeRPG based game of science heroes at the turn-of-the-century.
The Setting Sun #gamejam for In the Light of a Setting Sun, the rules-light Old West #ttrpg is open for another 12 days. I've added my own supplement to add dinosaurs to the old west.
Here's a entertaining (perhaps not entirely useful) star system generator I found over on itch.io - the 'Realistic' Star System Generator. It made me laugh.

If you want to run the adventure Operation Unfathomable by Jason Sholtis (you should - it's great) and you use the Black Hack rpg - I've converted all of the pregens from the adventure to the Black Hack.

I ran my first one-shot of Cepheus Atom, the fun, light, post-apocalypse #RPG.
I've posted my pregens for anyone who wants them.

Old book of fantasy maps from my library that's useful and inspirational for RPGs:
An Atlas of Fantasy by J.B. Post
There's a game jam on itch.io called the HexDrive Zine Jam. It's ending tonight. It's a collection of articles for the D&D Spelljammer setting, but only by people who have never actually read the actual setting.
Just under the wire, I've added my own contribution - the Broken Shroud
I've made a LibreOffice file that I've been using to create custom class sheets for Black Hack that match the style in the 2nd Edition rulebook. I'm posting it for anyone else who might find it useful.
I've used it to create PDFs for a few custom classes, which are also available at the link.
I've been playing with Cepheus Atom, the new post-apocalypse game based on the Cepheus Engine rules (basically Traveller).
It's light and fun, but doesn't have a character sheet, so I've made my own: https://polyhedralnonsense.wordpress.com/2020/08/17/cepheus-atom-fillable-character-sheet-for-new-post-apocalyptic-rpg/

It's a basic dungeon crawler with special mechanics to discourage creativity and storytelling.
It's not entirely serious.

Next in my series of capsule reviews of non-fiction books that would be useful in running RPGs:
Strange Creations: Aberrant Ideas of Human Origin from Ancient Astronauts to Aquatic Apes by Donna Kossy
A survey of every crank theory about the origin of Humanity - Aliens, Creationism, and some even weirdier stuff.
I've been going through my library and posting capsule reviews of non-gaming books that I've found useful as inspiration for RPGs.
Currently up - The Queen of Whale Cay: The Eccentric Story of 'Joe' Carstairs, Fastest Woman on Water
by Kate Summerscale
D&D settings re-imagined as 1970s paperbacks:
If you're going to run an Underdark/Underground style adventure, I'd suggest making a visit to the closest actual real-world cave system.
Pre-pandemic, I visited the Mammoth cave in Kentucky and took one of the basic tours. Three things came to mind:
1. It gets really, really dark down here.
2. There's no way in hell I could've taken a 10-foot pole down these twisty passages.
3. The Mammoth cave map is essentially a real-world dungeon map.
I've never played Star Frontiers. I'll probably never play Star Frontiers.
Inexplicably, I've created a fillable PDF character sheet for Star Frontiers, along with a table tent.
