Further Reading

Under construction. Eventually some wayward pathfinder will make this region easier to navigate, and linked blogs will have some word-sauce so that their flavors aren’t a guessing game for my readers. For now, though…

…just gonna share links to my three favorites.

Arnold Kemp’s Gaming Blog – Goblin Punch is my go-to place for random generators and crazy ideas. I highly recommend his Catherine post for something truly mind-bending.

Chris McDowall’s Gaming Blog – Into the Odd is a minimalist free dungeon-crawling game which I guess qualifies for the “best game I’ve never played”. Go play it! For a sample of his stuff, read his automachine examples of OSR monster design.

d4 Caltrops – A collection of encounter activities that can spice up OSR gameplay. Definitely worth checking out. I’ve no real personal favorites, because I’m more of a “plan in advance” GM than a “roll on a table to generate” GM, but I think it’s nonetheless a solid resource.
