New WARLOCK! adventure 'Bridgetown'

 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..?

Coming on April 16th for Those Dark Places Industrial Science Fiction Roleplaying...

'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.

New Those Dark Places material coming soon

 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.

Those Dark Places miniatures game

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! from Fire Ruby Designs

Warlock! is a game that I really need to sit down at a table with, and it's on my list of games to play when these lockdowns are lifted.

'Warlock is a rules-light roleplaying game that aims to emulate the feeling of old-school British tabletop games of wondrous and fantastical adventure. Warlock looks to reproduce the play style of its illustrious predecessors but in a light, quick and simple manner, with a consistent rules set that is easily hackable and adaptable as desired.

Features of the system:

Character creation, core rules, combat, magic and creatures all in one book!

Stat-less skills-based characters.

Unique careers that give skills and add flavour.

Simple resolution mechanic - roll a d20, adding your skill and try to get twenty or more.

Simple opposed tests for combat means there’s always a result, for good or for bad!

Spells available to every character.

Built-in setting, the Kingdom, for your games.

Easily adaptable to other settings.

Visit the link below to read an extensive preview of the book and to buy the book and/or PFF.'

It's also the game I chose over WFRP 4th edition, believe it or not; my favourite fantasy RPG of all time is WFRP 1st edition, and I got all the other editions in between including Zweihander, but when 4th came out I got the PDF and - as much as I enjoyed it - I didn't feel I needed yet another version of WFRP and another iteration of the rules. I was looking for something similar but much more malleable and then I came across Warlock!, which ticked all my boxes. Great system with an old-school flavour that invoked two of my favourite games, and a nice simple learning curve because I turn 50 this year and I simply don't have the time or the mental energy to learn or remember reams of new rules!

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.
