SO BEGINS THE ELDRITCH ARCHIVE
Hello everybody, I thought that it would be fun to celebrate the one year anniversary of this blog with a post expanding on the very first homebrew I posted. So below I have six more fighting styles and incantations for Lamentation of the Flame Princess’s wonderful Carcosa module. So thank you everyone who has been … Continue reading More Fighting Styles and Incantations for Carcosa
The following stat blocks were the result of an on-again off-again Planescape campaign I’ve been running in some form or another for about five years now. The various Lower Planes have always been interesting to me, the eternal battleground of war between the forces of pure evil, one seeking to control and dominate the universe, … Continue reading Planar Crawl Classics: Dastardly Devils
You’ve probably heard this one before. “I think our next game should be dark fantasy! We want a world of danger, where life is cheap and death is around every corner!“ And if you’re like me you probably responded with something like, “Hell yeah! That sounds awesome.” And why wouldn’t people be excited to play … Continue reading Dark, Deadly, and Dreary
I’ve been a fan of Kevin Crawford’s work ever since I got my hands on the free copy of classic Stars Without Number as a wide eyed fifteen-year old who had never played an RPG in his life.

The other week, while waiting for our Wednesday Warhammer session to start, one of my players and I began brainstorming a new Elven Ranger career that combined beast magic with forest survival and other elf-related fun. A few hours of … Continue reading Two Careers for Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition: The Anchorite and The Laurelon Ranger

Whether the party is made up of greedy rouges or righteous paladins, they are likely to run afoul of the law at some point. And if the campaign is one … Continue reading When Players Cross the Law: OSR Crime and Heat
