Occult Secrets of the Underworld Kickstarter (D&D 5e/PFRPG) launched!

Dear readers!   It has happened – the Occult Secrets of the Underworld are finally revealed! When AAW Games released Underworld Races & Classes, the Kickstarter narrowly missed the stretchgoal to make this book…but Jonathan G. Nelson listened to the fans, and commissioned this book, which, for me, is a passion project.   Why? Well, I was brought on board...

Miscellaneous Musings: Look Beyond Your System

This post was requested and sponsored by one of my patreons.   So, as you all have seen by now, I enjoy a wide variety of different systems. This, in itself, seems to be rarer than one would imagine, as there is a thoroughly baffling (to me) split in the RPG-community that generates a dichotomy that is not necessarily there....

Dear readers,   My week-end was less than pleasant. My godmother brought me a nice roast from my mum – unfortunately, the cooling chain must have been interrupted – the week-end and yesterday was mostly spent dealing with the fallout from the food-poisoning. It’s not an experience I’m keen to repeat.   While I don’t have the chills anymore, I...

Where to Start? Pulp Fantasy Campaign   The idea for this series was provided by one of my patreons, so thank you!   Okay, so we’ve been there, right? Staring at PFRPG/roleplaying in general…and being just blown away by the VAST number of options, books, etc. We don’t always have time to look up all kinds of books and preparing...

Announcement/KS-Shout-out

Dear readers,   I will be incredibly busy for the remainder of July – to the point where the whole daily communication routine (I spend at least 1 hour a day replying to mails) is just not possible.   I have smashed through a ton of content in this month so far (more than 1000 pages of material!), but the...

Miscellaneous Musings: On Horror Part II

Miscellaneous Musings: On Horror Part II   First things first: In case you missed part I, here’s the link!   The TL;DR-version of Part I is: The Castle of Otranto and Wieland exemplify early horror, focusing on anxieties; internalized and externalized, with loss of control and a feeling of helplessness as a leitmotif, in one case internalized, in the other...

Miscellaneous Musings: On Horror Part I

Miscellaneous Musings: On Horror Part I   So, horror in gaming. It’s no secret that horror is my favorite genre, but at the same time, it is widely considered to be the hardest to achieve in gaming, the most difficult to write for. The reasons for this are pretty obvious: Sitting around the table, munching pizza and pretzels with your...
