Deal of the Day - Lords of Olympus Diceless RPG

Today's Deal of the Day is the Lords of Olympus Diceless RPG. I own a few diceless RPGs, going back to Amber and one day I'd like to play one of them ;)

Normally 14.95, until tomorrow morning Lords of Olympus Diceless RPG is on sale for 5.95.
Portray gods and demigods -- children of Olympian Gods, Titans, or Primordials in this diceless roleplaying game of multi-dimensional mythology Fantasy. Explore new realms or the classic worlds of Earth and Mythological Greece. Visit Zeus' Olympus, Poseidon's Seas, or Hades' Underworld. Mix politics with intrigue, alliances with wars as power-struggles and vengeance drive stories. Or, go the route of lesser power with mortals and heroes. 
Lords of Olympus provides a new and original game inspired by the rules of the most successful diceless RPG of all time. The goal of this book is to not only be successful and enjoyable as a game in its own right, but also maintain the interest of players seeking out and experiencing the original and greatest diceless roleplaying game. 
Immersive Game-Play
  • The focus is on roleplaying and the story, fostering creativity.
  • Players bid for ability classes, so they get a say in how powerful their characters are in certain areas.
  • Relationships between characters promote intrigue and drama.
  • Characters are godly in their ability and powers for grand conflicts and escapades.
  • The scope is epic, from a single world, such as Classic Earth, to those of the characters' design; even futuristic and modern worlds can be imagined.
  • The diceless system promotes quick gameplay, since there are no tables to consult, dice to roll, or rules-lawyering.
  • Build stories around the Greek Pantheon or use the rules for your own settings.
  • Explore limitless stories of adventure: pit characters against each other or team them up to take on greater threats.

Tavern Update - Forthcoming MIA and Summer Plans

Tomorrow I have Pre Admission Screening for a procedure on Monday. So, I wont be posting next Monday or Tuesday - but you're in good hands, Chris will be back (more on Chris later :)

After I'm home and settled in there are various projects and the like I've had planned for a while that should start taking shape. We'll get Th4e Tavern hosted game weekend up and running virtually, hopefully by the end of June (what with nearly all of the major conventions canceled or transitioning online). I'll return to writing regular gaming content for sharing here at The Tavern and hopefully resurrect the Torchlight Zine.

Tavern Chat will start its Fireside Chats again and Rach and I will be doing a regular Gamers' & Health podcast within the podcast.

Welcome to Tenkar 2.0 ;)

Request for Info - Free 100 Level Duneon

Occasionally I get requests for info. This one is a complete mystery to me...


I hope you are feeling better. I know it will be a long road. My family and I are thinking of you and yours.

I wish to beg a favor. Would you run this on the Tavern?

This is the mystery of “Free 100 Level Dungeon”. Does anyone have this or have more info on this Dungeon?

I have absolutely scoured there internet and asked everyone I know. Here is what I’ve learned so far. This was a half page ad from Marvel’s X-Factor, issue #28, May 1988. The address is in a shopping center in Brampton Ontario a a suburb of Toronto.

$12 USD in 1988 would be worth $26 today adjusted for inflation. I do think it’s strange that the ad doesn’t specify CAD or USD.

Without an actual title or a author’s name chances of finding this one are slim as those are the normal means of cataloguing the written word. Have you seen this or know the author? Did you ever visit Star Games in Brampton?

Limited Time Availability (Though May 31st) - Scents & Sensibilities - Frog God Games (S&W, 5e, PF)

Normally you would expect something like Scents & Sensibilities to be offered via Indiegogo, but why not cut out the middle man? :)

8 bucks in PDF, 20 bucks for Print plus PDF
Our exclusive Game Day module, Scents & Sensibilities, is now available for pre-order! To guarantee a physical copy you will need to pre-order by May 31. We expect physical copies of the module to ship by June 30. The PDF will be added to your account shortly after May 31, and we will send an update via the newsletter when they are available for download. 
Shipping Note: We are not able to combine shipping charges for ordinary website sales with this pre-order. 
Scents and Sensibilities is a three-part resource for those who choose to challenge their players with the foul-smelling monsters known as stank hogs. The first section is a short adventure called The Manufactory of Fumario, and the second section is an erudite discussion of the stank hog (Sus noxium). The third section contains statistics for adult and young stank hogs. 
The Manufactory of Fumario is suitable for 4–6 characters of level 1-3. The adventure begins with the characters encountering Fumario, a perfume-dealer who travels among strange worlds and even other planes of existence. His manufactory travels with him, and the characters (as heroes do) stumble into a bizarre encounter with him. Fumario’s methods and motivations are inexplicable, but this is usually the case with supernatural patrons…

Kickstarter - Hyperborea Dice (North Wind Adventures)

Have I mentioned my weakness for dice in the past? heh

I'm in for two sets. :)

From North Wind Adventures, creators of Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea™, come HYPERBOREA DICE, a beautiful set of nine (9) polyhedral dice, and a 4 x 6-inch Colombian leather pouch.

We have partnered with our friends at Gate Keeper Games to produce the HYPERBOREA DICE! These dice are being created using GKG's special "Neutron Dice" formula. Each die has three layers, featuring a shining band of pearlescent icy blue nestled between two transparent outer layers. The colour scheme represents the glacial ice of HYPERBOREA and its scarlet, bloated sun (Helios).

The "Neutron Dice" formula
Each die has the high and low numbers centered on the two clear halves for high-speed number recognition, and the d20 features the North Wind Adventures Xathoqqua (Tsathoggua) logo on the "1" face. 
Tenkar's Tavern is supported by various affiliate programs, including Amazon, RPGNow,
and Humble Bundle as well as Patreon. Your patronage is appreciated and helps keep the
lights on and the taps flowing. Your Humble Bartender, Tenkar
