This is a great project I worked on for Warlock! and it's available now from DrivethruRPG.
An adventure supplement for Warlock!, the old-school roleplaying game inspired by the early days of British tabletop gaming.
Explore Bridgetown, before it falls into the Fardruin!
In this adventure for the Warlock! roleplaying game inspired by the early days of British tabletop gaming, the characters explore Bridgetown, once a wonder of the Kingdom, now a collapsing den of thieves, vagabonds and worse. Can the characters discover a missing bracelet of sentimental value before it disappears into the dark alleys and twisting paths of the ancient town? And what was that, scurrying about in the shadows..?

'About an hour ago the Deep Space Transport Vessel Ana-Sin-Emid dropped out of FTL and has been steadily coasting to the outer marker. There has been no communication from the vessel or any responses to hails and the staging nature of the deceleration has the signs of being automated.
The Deep Space Reconnaissance Vessel Grahams is on dock C. Be ready to launch within the hour. Get on board the Ana-Sin-Emid, get to the bridge and report back to us. The outer marker is an AU out so it should only take you a day to get there. We’ll have a fully-equipped support ship loaded and ready to follow in about 12 hours, but you’re our first response to help and, if possible, lay a salvage claim.’
'The Ana-Sin-Emid Report' is an adventure for 'Those Dark Places Industrial Science Fiction Roleplaying' published by Osprey Games.
To be released on April 16th on DrivethruRPG.

I'm working on a sequence of Reports (adventures) for Those Dark Places but I just need to sort out releases. They'll be based on the games I ran for @GarblagGames, @DougVCGaming, @joindicebreaker and @ontabletop
Keep monitoring this transmission.
The first adventure I'm going to release is 'The Ana-Sin-Emid Report', which I originally ran for @GarblagGames last year. It was a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to fleshing it out.

I'll be purchasing some 15mm minis from Ground Zero Games to playtest the miniatures game of Those Dark Places which I've given the working title of Darker Places.
I'm looking forward to this. Wargame design is new to me and it'll be nice to try something different.

Warlock! is excellent and it's a game that came along at the right time for me as it was simple, evoked my favourite era and genre of fantasy gaming and is just an all-round excellent game.
