I've decided I want to spotlight one of my favorite rpg writers, +Rafael Chandler. Considering how I tend to run my games, it may seem like Rafael's stuff would be too brutal for my games. And let me be honest, most of it is. However, that being said I find his writing entertaining and fascinating. Just because I don't include much black metal inspired gore in my games, that doesn't mean I don't still appreciate the artistry and aesthetic. Without further ado, here are some of his prominent OSR works.
Teratic Tome: With it's 6.66 asking price, this was the first of Rafael's books I read. It's a brutal AD&D compatible monster book full of blacker than the blackest black monsters. The setting these monsters live in, definitely needs stalwart heroes, because well, the common folk are screwed. The unique creatures, demons, and common pc race variants were my favorites.
Obscene Serpent Religion: Inspired by black metal, this short Lamentations of the Flame Princess supplement allows you randomly generate all sorts of twisted serpent cults. It's pay-what-you-want, so if you want a taste of Rafael's work, this is one to pick up.
SlaughterGrid: This hexcrawl has the contains the following in the description: "Created by genocidal halflings..." Let's be honest, I shouldn't have to say anything more than that.
Lusus Naturae: This is probably my favorite of Rafael's books. It's a monster tome for Lamentations of the Flame Princess full of "freaks of nature." I was a proud backer of this Kickstarter and have used some of the creatures in my 5E games (the stuff is easy to convert). You can check out my Shadhavar conversion here.
Bad Myrmidon: This is an interesting take on ancient Greece written for a good cause. Check it out!
No Salvation for Witches: This Lamentations of the Flame Princess adventure is really interesting. Then again, what LotFP adventure isn't? The adventure is wicked and entertaining (not to mention campaign altering). If you don't check it out for any other reason, you have to for the Tract of Teratology. This is a radomly-generated creature-summoning ritual with 3.6 quadrillion combinations!
World of the Lost: Confession time, I've not picked this one up yet. However, it's a wilderness hexcrawl featuring 200 ecounters with dinosaurs, psychotic robots, demons, ray guns, and more. I don't have it yet, but when I do pick it up, you folks will definitely hear about it.
Rafael has more work, but these are his most prominent OSR creations. I'm not a great writer, I know my words don't do his work justice. If you're not squeamish, like your coffee and metal black, then check out his work. You won't be disappointed.
