Mini Review - Zogorion, Lord of the Hippogriffs (Swords & Wizardry)

Ashley Can't Help But Be In The Picture ;)
Zogorion is a mini-adventure for Swords & Wizardry.  It is published by Jason Sholtis (with help from John Larrey) of The Dungeon Dozen blog.  And it is good. ;)

It is a heavy roleplaying adventure on the front end, which comes with a twist (and huge hammer) for the party near the end.  My new meaning of OSR certainly applies to this adventure, as it will quite possibly be lethal for the unprepared or foolish.

It lists a level range of 3-7, but I'd weigh that heavily towards the high end of that range if you want a party that has a decent chance to survive.

It's available in print only for the low price of 2 bucks (including shipping).  16 pages (zine sized) with a wrap around cover (and a map on the inside of said cover) that is not part of the page count.

This will be sharing shelf space with my Loviatar Collection ;)


  1. It is next to my Lovaitars also. Great adventure.

  2. i think your review prompted my order tim ;)

  3. HA! Mine is sitting on thhe shelf....right next to all the issues of Loviatar as well!

  4. I really enjoyed reading this. It was so fun and such a quick, easy read that I've gone though three or four times looking for anything I missed the first time. I really love the little details, like the vampire who passes her time restoring antique furniture. So great!

  5. Now I really have to get this. The OSR attacks my bank account again. But heck it's $2.

  6. One of the great things about DIY media is that the costs are kept low. $2 is so cool.

    As a DIYer, you have to front the costs of printing. You also want to keep the product inexpensive to mail, so the page count won't be too high. That's why zines have always been digest format in the range of 16-48 pages or so. They tend to carry a price tag of $2 - $5, which is great for almost any budget.

    I really hope Jason produces another one of the gems. :)

  7. Thanks Erik. I appreciate the time you took to read and post about my humble little project! I'm totally charged up to do more in the hand-crafted media category and would love to see more from others.

  8. @jasons - good stuff! looking forward to more
