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…

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…

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

When this was the topic that was voted on by those of you over on Twitter, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do.

In that regard we have two monthly articles…

Resources For Every GM: Rules & Supplements Part 8

Resources For Every GM: Rules & Supplements Part 8

It has been quite a while since this series took a look at actual rule books. Well, aside form the occasions when I mention other games you might want to try out. Today we get back to some down-to-it rule books from the 3rd Edition era of Dungeons & Dragons. Each of these books has not really been seen in quite a while, at least not as proper D&D published supplements. One, to be fair, was released in the 4th…

Wandering Dev Diary #6: Savage Worlds Arcane Backgrounds

Wandering Dev Diary #6: Savage Worlds Arcane Backgrounds

As you may know I have been in the process of building a lot of things recently. Some of it has been directly blog related, but I have also been pretty inspired to build up a sort of preliminary campaign guide for my home brew material. This is something I can bring to the table and look through if I need too, especially as I continue to build more and more. I have also been working towards a Brave New…
