I like going off the beaten path and finding those little things that fall outside of what all the cools kids are doing. It doesn’t matter if it’s a blog or small publisher, there’s folks out there that don’t get enough recognition. That leads down to a little publisher, Chaos Factory Books.
Now, I haven’t purchased every single title but there’s a group that I have purchased many of and that’s the Dark Fantasy supplements. These are short, low-cost, system-neutral PDF’s. I’ve grabbed up Dark Fantasy Settings, Dark Fantasy Places, Dark Fantasy Religion, and Dark Fantasy Magic. Each one contains a whole series of random tables for a GM to use as inspiration for creating a Dark Fantasy or even a Weird Fantasy campaign or adventure. For me personally, these are the best kind of supplements. They don’t spell everything out for a GM but inspire to bring in whatever weird thing they want. And as I said, they could used for just plain old inspiration. Each PDF is only about 12 pages. Long enough to cover the subject but not overly detailed. These PDF’s give you just what need to get the job done.
So these are worth checking out on DrivethruRPG. Oh and the author, Eric Diaz, has a blog too so you can a good sense of what he’s up to.
It’s been long time since I did a “What’s Cool Wednesday” Part of that is that I’ve been so busy. Another part is just finding something new (to me at least) that’s really cool. But I got one this week.
Sure, The Lizard Man Diaries has been around for a while but I just stumbled across the blog via just shopping around DrivethruRPG. So what’s over there? Lots of cool ideas and random generators for lots and lots stuff. Rooms, gangs/guilds, tools for city adventures and all sorts of goodies.
So I recommend checking out the blog. That link is right above there. Oh, and there’s some pretty cool pdf’s available on DrivethruRPG. But I’ll talk more about a couple of those later.
And with that. Be cool out there. Look for and share cool gaming stuff. And talk about other people’s stuff that you thing is near.
It’s rare that I get full on embarrassing laughs at work while listen to a podcast. Here is the guilty party. Malodorous Miasma Meltdown check it out on Anchor. Damned funny!
