Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Review: Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Hey everyone! Before we get into today’s review I wanted to talk about reviews moving forward for a little while. I have them lined up for the next couple weeks with the last one being the first Thursday in August. Currently I am not actively pursuing reviews as I am going to be cutting down the rate at which I do them. Doing them every week is time consuming and while I feel that I give a pretty good run…

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 4 / Horror Part 6

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 4 / Horror Part 6

Hello everyone! Today I have another double topic featuring three characters from classic horror movies that would make interesting monsters or villains for your campaign! Freddy Krueger Freddy comes from the Nightmare on Elm Street film series by Wes Craven and is among the more famous slasher killers. What makes him interesting is the fact that the character does not exist in the real world, he is merely a fiction of our nightmares. Of course that isn’t wholly true as…

Making Magic Eldritch!

Making Magic Eldritch!

Hello everyone! This week I released Lovecraftian Spells, a 5E supplement focusing on adding some cosmic horror to your spell lists. It has almost 30 new spells, guidelines for reskinning spells for your own needs, ideas for making the Madness rules a little more harsh, and ideas for spell themes. In the coming weeks there will be updates to wording and clarifications and in the coming months I hope to continue expanding the spell list. Below are a couple preview…

Resources For Every GM: Settings Part 4

Resources For Every GM: Settings Part 4

Today I have a bit of a different, light-hearted set of resources for you. These settings are chock full of inspirations as long as you are willing to look for them. Inspiration can be found anywhere and you might not even realize some of the ideas you might cook up for games like D&D in the most unlikely places. So today I have three settings produced by Nintendo that are generally geared to a younger and/or family friendly audience. Even…

Resources For Every GM: Alternative Games Part 5

Resources For Every GM: Alternative Games Part 5

Today we have a set of games to try out at your table that aren’t D&D. If you are relatively new here, this is one of my resource topics simply because much of the mechanical content of this blog is D&D based. Furthermore, I reference and play that game more than any other. But I want to share other games and expand readers’ potential experiences. So, the theme for today’s set of RPGs is space! All three are sci-fi games…

Resources For Every GM: Audio Part 2

Resources For Every GM: Audio Part 2

I have spent a pretty good amount of time recently focusing on inspiration for your games. There is a lot of it out there and it can be more useful than any rule book or source book. In the coming weeks I will have some more inspiration for you, but I also wanted to include some tools. Today I have some audio resources for you, but sadly only two. These can be pretty hard to come by and one of…

Resources For Every GM: Artifacts, MacGuffins, & Red Herrings Part 4

Resources For Every GM: Artifacts, MacGuffins, & Red Herrings Part 4

Hello everyone! For those who are relatively new to the blog I need to start by not only welcoming you, but also by warning you. This resource category is probably the most misnamed and/or hodgepodge grouping I have on the whole site. While originally meant to utilize famous, or infamous, examples of these object tropes, the category is a bit of a catch-all for story-telling devices. As such, we continue that trend with three interesting concepts that, in themselves, aren’t…

Mini-Review: Axebane’s Deck of Many Dungeons

Today I have a review of something different for you all! This go around I have a utility for Game Masters to utilize and it is a physical product. Don’t let that stop you from reading. It is not a big, super expensive product. This is Axebane’s Deck of Many Dungeons, a deck of cards that doubles as a random dungeon creator. I bought this specifically to review since the expansion set released recently, so let’s talk about what it…

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 3 / Horror Part 5

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 3 / Horror Part 5

Hello everyone, we’re back to the Resources with more inspirational works. This time we have three characters from the horror genre. More specifically, these are characters of Lovecraftian horror. If you are new here you may not have seen how much I love cosmic horror, but I do and for good reason. It holds concepts of philosophical horror that other tales just don’t connect with. Sure, other tales are less weird or more humanized, but that is why I love…
