This armor is extremely light weight and doesn't impede spellcasting, which means magic-users and elves can use it without hindering their arcane talent.

A Little Less Sixteen Candles... A Little More Buffy?

Nothing profound in this post, just sharing a music video that always makes me want to play some cinematic unisystem, Fall Out Boy - A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me"

This is the music I listened to in my early 20's so I tend to associate it with things like Buffy. Going to be honest, I also love this video because it features Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco as a sexy gentleman vampire.

Because I'm the Dungeon Master....

 I had to share my newest pin. It's part of a limited run by Pop Rob!. I picked up up on eBay a few weeks ago and I'm quite pleased with it.

Giants and Sky Castles

I want a fortress in the sky adventure with giants, but I can't decide which one to pick up. I've heard great things about both Castle Gargantua and Broodmother SkyFortress. The reviews I've read have mentioned that they are both Lamentations of the Flame Princess-esque. Well, Castle is LotFP-esque, SkyFortress is actually a LotFP adventure.

Castle Gargantua seems like a dark take on the classic Jack and the Beanstalk tale. It even (potentially) has a godsdamn beanstalk. By contrast, SkyFortress has giant elephant-shark-man-things and apparently some Jack Kirby influence.

To be honest, both sound like they have a lot of potential. I just can't decide which I want more. Hell, I'll probably get both, but which do I pick up first?

Do you own or have you played in either of these adventures? If so, let me know what you think.

The Nephilim for Swords & Wizardry Complete is Now Available

Today my first official rpg product went live on OneBookShelf. The Nephilim is a short supplement written for Swords & Wizardry Complete. This pdf includes player stats for nephilim. Big humanoids with bigger emotions, these angel blooded folk excel as fighters. For DM's I've included stats for a typical nephil as well as three off shoots. Seers are ancient nephil that act as oracles and commune with fate. Blackhearts are nephil twisted by their peoples treatment by the gods of law and their servants. Finally Ogril are a degenerate crossbreed of nephil and ogre. The pdf ends with a handful of magic items tied to the nephilim and their angelic parents.

I wanted to give a special thanks to Kevin Watson of Dark Naga Adventures and +Timothy Brannan for the layout help and advice. This pdf may not seem like much to some, but it means a lot to me and I wouldn't have been able to make it with out them. This is the first of hopefully many rpg releases. If you want to add some Biblical mythology to your game, you can grab The Nephilim here for 99 cents.

I'm a happy man right now. ;)
