Once again, I am privileged to be apart of the Dungeonmorph Revenge Dice Kickstarter. There are only 35 hours left to go now, and last I checked we were up to just over 24k, so the project is funded. This time we have the battlemat style cards, as well as the great dice and regular cards. Check it out and pick up some awesome dice, cards, and the new battlemats.

….Banshee Mist Hill….

Here is a map I drew awhile ago, I as experimenting with decorating the floor squares. Not sure how I feel about those cavern floors, but they have been growing on me. I do like the dungeon floors. Thinking I will keep that style for new maps. I have no story or background for this, but I may be using the map as a quick drop in to my campaign sometime. Here is a link to the PDF file, feel free to use it for personal use.

….”The Fantasy Trip Character Sheets” or “What does one post when they haven’t posted anything in 5 years”…….

It’s been way too long since I posted on this blog, time to fire it up again. Why did I stop posting here, I have no idea, but mostly I think I just got lazy. So anyways enough about that.

I found a really solid gaming group last spring, and for the first few months I did not have to DM. We played 5th edition and get together every Tuesday night. We have five regular players (including me) and four or five others that pop in and out. Then Kyle (Our DM) asked me to start up a campaign so he could play once in awhile. I told them we would go old school, using a mish-mash of the Holmes Blue Book and AD&D. They all originally started playing with the 4th edition I guess, so they really had no idea what to expect. I created a sandbox campaign and had them create characters (2 for each player in the beginning as I knew some would die, and they did). Turns out they really enjoy the old style rules and my campaign has been going strong ever since. I will be posting more on that in some later posts.

Today I am just posting some TFT (The Fantasy Trip) character sheets, I got the new boxed set from Steve Jackson Games Kickstarter. I remember seeing the game in the late 70’s early 80’s and I always thought it looked fun, but I never got a copy back then. I eventually picked up some original copies of Melee and Wizard on Ebay, but still had never played it. Once I received my new set, I was so happy to see the reverse side of the Mega Hexes were drawn by Dyson, that was a very cool surprise. Kudos Dyson! I brought the game to our group, and we gave it try. I just have to say WOW, we had so much fun, we play it quite regularly now. It’s fast, quick, and deadly perfect for winding done after a good session of D&D or those nights when not everyone can make it. We’ve had battles between Highlanders and Romans, Fighters and Orcs, Wizards battles, it’s a lot of fun to get creative with. I was inspired to make up my own character cards so here it is, the health boxes on the bottom are Dyson’s style of boxes, I copied his style, but I got his permission to post this first.  Click this link for a full sheet of for full PDF sheet of five cards for your own personal use, just print and cut them apart: Full Sheet 3×5 Cards

Our group like these cards more than ones in the game, and I have started on a new improved version as well. Enjoy.

About this blog

    This blog came into being after I discovered the OSR blog scene. I was inspired by Dyson Logos and his blog, specifically his geomorph project. Check out his awesome work: "Dyson's Dodecahedron" The style and the simple elegance of his 10 x 10 squares put me on a mapping roll. I have blatently (...and respectfully) emulated his style and now have pages upon pages of geomorphs. Along with more location specific maps in that same style.

   My intent for this blog is for it to be more than just maps and geomorphs. However, for now, I'm just enjoying this burst of creativity inspired by Dyson and the entire OSR community.
