OSR Superstar Map

So the OSR Superstar competition has wrapped up, more or less. I forget what actually happened, but I was unable to submit an entry in the final round. I did complete the map (again, more or less), but not the adventure.

I haven't looked at this for about 9 months, but I really like how the map came out. There are discrete areas, but it's possible to reach all of them from within the dungeon. The multiple levels worked out well, and I like how the grid changes orientation as it crosses the chasm. I think I'll find this and work it up for my current campaign.

Warriors of Arthur's Court

I am working on a new pdf. It's not really a proper issue of Secrets (although I'm hoping for one of those soon too), but rather compiling the tables I came up with from Culhwch & Olwen, including 11 d20 random tables of Warriors from King Arthur's court, 1 d20 table of women, 1 d20 of magical treasures, 1 d20 of animals, 1 d12 of magical beasts (not horses, dogs, or oxen), and 1 of giants & witches (only 4 entries, but hey, work with what you've got). I'm planning on simple stats for the animals, beasts, and treasures, and some kind of simple class/level table for the warriors & women. I'll see if I can work out some kind of dual-stat system for S&W/5e.

5e, incidentally, is occupying most of my brain space. Sorry, but that's what happens. I'm not sure if I'll dual-stat Secrets from here on out, or do two different versions, a S&W and a 5e. I might also see about redoing issues 1 and 2 for 5e.

King Cthulhu

I'm going to lay claim to the idea of King Cthulu, wherein Nimue, Morgan le Fey, and Mordred fight a desperate battle against the corrupt, demon-worshipping forces of King Arthur, who bears the loathsome sword Bruilacex.  :)

Still here!

Just a short note to say I'm still here.

Somethings just take time. A year or two ago I finally put in the time and effort to make writing work more or less how I wanted it to. Since then, I've done the same with a few other hobbies. Each is starting to click in its own way. Now my job is to make them work together, and take care of some other business that's been sidelined for too long. It's not a fast process, but that's OK. I've gotten a lot more patient over the years.

I grew up outdoors, so I write more in the winter months, when it's dark. For now, I'm going out to enjoy the sun. I'll be back soon.

Strange Races update

I've finally managed to finish printing & assembling the last issues of Strange Races, aka Secrets #2. They'll be in the mail tomorrow. I'm very sorry for the delay.  :(
