Last night, I ran a one shot of Mörk Borg, the OSR dark metal fantasy RPG. The best thing about Mörk Borg, and what more RPGs should aim for, is providing all of the little tools that make like easier for GMs The character generators, the dungeon generators, the free Foundry VTT plugin, and of … Continue reading The Tools of Mörk Borg
So the Troika Fest Jam just ended. I've already posted about my entry, so I thought I'd highlight some of the other fun Troika! supplements that people have made. I'll admit I haven't actually looked at all 120+ entries, but it's good to support small creators, so I'd thought I'd highlight the ones I thought … Continue reading The Best of the TroikaFest Jam – Part 1

However, I just ran Modiphius' Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of (which ain't rules-light at all), and I'm starting to reconsider this … Continue reading Conan RPG: Changing my mind about crunch
I've been working on an entry for the TroikaFest! 2021 Game Jam over on itch.io. I've decided to expand on Bad Barsoom, a micro-setting I created for a previous Troika! game jam.

Ran my first one-shot of Vaults of Vaarn, the OSR science fantasy RPG zine. It's set in a far future wasteland Earth, littered with the technological remains of advanced super-civilizations, under a dying red sun. It's very much in the tradition of the Dying Earth sub-genre. It's sort of Numenera mixed with Gamma World. It … Continue reading Vaults of Vaarn – Fillable Character Sheet & Pregens
