Kickstarter - Mystmoor (Horror/Fantasy Setting)


A TTRPG Fantasy Horror Campaign & Setting - System Agnostic e.g. DND 5e OSR etc. with support for EZD6 and Shadowdark

We had Bruce on the Talking Crit Livestream last night, and not only was he a great guest, but his knowledge of horror fiction and movies is second to none. I highly recommend Bruce's Mystmoor Kickstarter.

MYSTMOOR is a system-agnostic* fantasy-horror setting and campaign you can easily use with your favourite TTRPG game.  Its design gives experienced Game Masters (GMs) the flexibility to run the materials in most low-magic, medieval-fantasy settings. 

It’s packed full of plot hooks, mysteries, threats, and everything you need for a campaign. 

This content is 100% Human created with absolutely NO A.I. involvement.

Blending heroic action with horrifying mysteries, take your players on a journey that allows them to feel like heroes, but always on edge at the horrors that lurk just outside their view, lying in wait in MYSTMOOR.

MYSTMOOR is inspired by the fantastic and horror materials the author was exposed to growing up; this includes major tributes to the works of Richard Matheson, M. R. James, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert E. Howard, Ramsey Campbell, Bram Stoker, Sheridan Le Fanu, Dashiell Hammett and more. There are numerous tributes and homages to them as well as many classic films (Black Sunday (check out the Demonic Mask you will see floating around much of the Mystmoor art), Night Stalker, The Legend of Hell House, Night of the Eagle, Night of the Demon, Cat People, the Maltese Falcon, Tombs of the Blind Dead, Trilogy of Terror, etc.), television shows (Kolchak, Night Gallery, Twilight Zone, Space:1999, Star Trek, etc.), books (Sherlock Holmes, Conan, Cthulhu Mythos tales, etc.), comic books (Dr. Spektor, Dr. Strange, Man-Thing, Swamp Thing, etc.), computer games (anyone remember Donjonquest and Brian Hammerhand?), and old-school RPG modules (Griffin Mountain, Keep on the Borderlands, etc.).  This is a passion project!

Bundle of Holding - Operation Unfathomable


I have half of the stuff in the Operation Unfathonable Bundle in print, and I'm snagging this for the stuff I'm missing :)

Adventurer! This new Operation Unfathomable Bundle features Operation Unfathomable, the gonzo fantasy roleplaying campaign setting by Jason Sholtis for Old School Revival tabletop retro-clones. (This offer also includes a version for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG from Goodman Games.) The Sorcerer-King's son stole a powerful relic, the Nul Rod, and fled into the Unfathomable Underworld, a subterranean wilderness of unsurpassed strangeness and peril. Your fledgling 1st-level adventurers pursue him into a vast and incomparably bizarre cavern-world of civilized fungoids, bat-winged dwarves, two-headed giant ape mummies guarding franchise temples, decapitante soldiers, psychephages, death-ray revolvers, the ruins of the now-extinct Genocide Beetle civilization, the Fizzy Drink of Ocular Autonomy ("causes eyeballs to leave their moorings and levitate freely"), and Shaggath-Ka the Worm Sultan. In most circumstances, fragile beginning characters would be doomed. But explorers with good sense (and a willingness to hide) can hope to gain great treasure and speedy advancement.

This new offer brings you the entire Operation Unfathomable line for an unbeatable bargain price. For just US$14.95 you get all six titles in our Unfathomable Collection (retail value $69) as DRM-free ebooks, including the complete the complete 108-page Operation Unfathomable core campaign book, plus the Player's Guide; the sequel setting Odious Uplands and its free Map Pack; the complete conversion for Dungeon Crawl Classics, Completely Unfathomable; and both volumes of Jason Sholtis's brilliant D12 tables, The Dungeon Dozen Volume 1 [previously in our November 2014 Worldbuilder's Toolkit 2] and Volume 2.

Humble Bundle - Stories from the World of Warhammer 2024 from Black Library

I'm a huge fan of Warhammer Fantasy fiction. My old gaming group loves the Warhammer 40k setting for fiction. Two great settings, all in one huge Warhammer Fiction Bundle.

NTRPG Con - Day 4 - Con Wrap Up

All good things must come to an end, and NTRPG Con 2024 is no different. Sure, a handful of games are still running, but the dealer's room is mostly packed up, if not totally.

Yesterday was the Awards Ceremony and the Main Auction. ShadowDark won the Three Castles Award this year. Above is Kelsey with the first of the new Three Castles Awards designed by TSR alumni Diesel. Note, that Kelsey and Diesel have agreed to come on the Talking Crit Livestream with me and Bad Mike later this summer. Oh, and also James Raggi, Chris Clark, Ben Burns, and one or two others that Bad Mike and I currently are holding up our sleeves. It's going to be a great summer :)

Thanks to all the supporters of The Tavern that I had the amazing opportunity to speak with over the last few days. Your support means more than I can ever put into words.

Tenkar's Tavern is supported by various affiliate programs, including Amazon, RPGNow,
