Some Random Thoughts & Praise Tonight For the The Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master's Guide By Gary Gygax & Mike Carr

Thu, 07/25/2019 - 03:07
The Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master's Guide By Gary Gygax & Mike Carr has some very iconic parts to it but the book itself is a classic. The book is a snap shot in time when Advanced Dungeons & Dragons ruled the table.  But what makes the The Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon Master's Guide stand out even today to me is the utility of the book. Everything for the AD&D dungeon Needleshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11243274667834930867noreply@blogger.com0

Weird Wednesday OSR Film Inspiration - Disney's The Black Hole Film from 1979

Wed, 07/24/2019 - 21:31
I actually saw this movie at a drive in back in 1979, I was nine years old. It pretty much screwed me up for life. The movie plot is as follows: It is the year 2130 A.D. An Earth exploratory ship, the USS Palomino, discovers a black hole with a lost ship, the USS Cygnus, just outside its event horizon. Deciding to solve the mystery of the Cygnus are: the Palomino's Captain, Dan Holland; his Needleshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11243274667834930867noreply@blogger.com0

We began the second half of the conversation that we were having two weeks ago about HG Well's Time Machine and the Morlocks Tonight we started to talk about the Eloi and the relationship between the Morlocks & the Eloi.Needleshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11243274667834930867noreply@blogger.com0

Using Gary Gygax's D3 Vault of the Drow & Queen Of The Demonweb Pits With Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea - A Mini Campaign Part II

Tue, 07/23/2019 - 17:57
The PC's are hopelessly lost in the twisting churning tunnels that lead into the underworld of Gary Gygax's Q1 Queen of the Demonweb Pits.  Now this would seem to be the end of the saga but instead I propose that its just the beginnings of the problems for the PC's. They've incurred the wraith of a whole people & they've destroyed the avatar of one of the most powerful demons of the Abyss.

Three times Randolph Carter dreamed of the marvelous city, and three times was he snatched away while still he paused on the high terrace above it.

"As a member of a bold party of adventurers, you and your associates have trekked far into what seems to be a whole underworld of subterranean tunnels -- arteries connecting endless caves and caverns which honeycomb the foundations of the lands beneath the sun. Your expedition has dogged the heels of the Dark Elves who caused great woe and then fled underground. "Along with Needleshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11243274667834930867noreply@blogger.com0
