Today’s post is a bit of a sneak preview for something I’ve been collaborating on. In Wanderhome the many places you visit can be anything you wish and the prompts provided are fairly wide open but I think people sometimes get stuck in a literal mode. This upcoming release aims to help mix that up and offers some new locales as fun examples of just how far you can go with a Nature.Continue reading “How to Create Wanderhome Natures”

Half-baked ideas for campaigns in various settings based on music, history, books, movies, etc.
Twenty Plot Hooks for Spooky Stories
I’m here a day earlier than normal to coincide with Halloween, a holiday all about scary stories and creeping strangeness. While there are plenty of ways to tie this spooky season into your RPGs, I’m here with twenty horror-themed plot hooks that you are free to borrow and use.Continue reading “Twenty Plot Hooks for Spooky Stories”
My Little Pony: A New Generation
In case you don’t follow kids media like me and all the other parents in lockdown, you might have missed that there’s a new My Little Pony movie out! Netflix launched My Little Pony: A New Generation last month and my kiddos won’t stop talking about it. Since they also like the Tails of Equestria RPG I thought I’d take some time to create the characters of this new film for your home game and mine.Continue reading “My Little Pony: A New Generation”
City of Mist: Laney Dearborn
We’re back! I wasn’t really thinking that things might be worse or more stressful when I came back in April but… well here we are. Dr. James, the Mephling, and Little Grue are all healthy and well, but we’ve got some serious cabin fever being stuck at home all day, every day. And so (even though I’m still feeling a bit overwhelmed by life, the universe, and everything) I’m very happy to be returning to the escapism of creating gaming resources.
Fast, Furious, and Fairytales: Part 1
I’m back today (a little delayed, sorry) to flesh out my first case for the Disney Princesses in my City of Mist campaign. A full write-up for a case can get pretty long so we’re splitting it up into two parts. Today’s post is all about the main culprit behind this plot, and we’ll get to the locations and iceberg next time. I imagine it goes without saying but If You Might be Playing Through This Case, Stop Reading Now!Continue reading “Fast, Furious, and Fairytales: Part 1”
Character Pitches for City of Mist 2
I’m back with more character sketches based on random articles from the Fairytale Wikiand the Mythology Wiki. It’s really helpful doing these, not really because I’m making characters that I’d like to use in a campaign but because it’s handy to stretch my imagination a little. I encourage you to do it, and to steal these characters if they interest you.Continue reading “Character Pitches for City of Mist 2”
Pregens for Spire
I’m getting ready to introduce Spire to a group of players and realized that I could really use some pregens! If you’re in the same boat, consider this a present to help you get your own game off the ground.Continue reading “Pregens for Spire”
The Crew: Tea Party Investigators
I’m back with more for my City of Mist campaign skeleton! Having described Alexis, Anna, Heather, and Ophelia (as well as a villain for good measure) I’m here to take the next step and and make a Crew playbook for these gals. I really love social mechanics like this so let’s see how it goes!
City of Mist: The Red Queen
I’m continuing my campaign-building for my hypothetical City of Mist campaign and this time I’m delving into the antagonistic side of things. I established early on that Alexis had an enemy in the criminal known as the Red Queen, but I am thinking that’s not the ultimate threat here. It’s actually interesting (and super-noir) to have a criminal that the protagonists might end up working with. So that’s what we ended up with!
Five Old Books That Still Have Something to Offer
I was thinking back the other day to some of the awesome D&D supplements I’ve used in the past and how they are just collecting dust now (in my hard drive or on my shelf). Usually this is because I’m not really playing the games they were written for anymore (old editions, settings I haven’t been back to, etc) but there are some really awesome ones that I think I should have back in my repertoire anyways! Today I want to talk about five older books that you might not have heard of that you should check out anyways.
