I know I haven’t blogged anything of late. I’ve been busy reading. One the really neat things about the OSR is that there’s so much stuff. And if you just don’t happen to grab something when it’s new and shiny. It’s OK to go back and grab some stuff and start reading.

You know I’ve been on a Space Opera kick and this was latest acquisition. Highly recommended. Even if you just want to use all those charts. And bonus. It’s Pay What You Want on Drivethrurpg. You really don’t have anything to lose. It’s a solid old-school space opera game. And pretty easy to kit bash with things like X-plorers. But then of course like a cat with laser pointer. I get distracted and start reading some Mutant Future.

I’m still digesting all of it but damn there is whacky gonzo stuff that I’m just aching to kit bash. Yeah, I just may have some more crazy ideas that are going to keep my up all night. Well, not in a nightmare way but in the “I have too many ideas bouncing around inside my head!” way.
So if you’ll excuse me I have to mutate some space elves.

Yes, I like dragons but the Dragonborn always just kind of felt “meh” to me. Sort of dragons but not quite. And some overall feeling that they were just tacked on to D&D as a fanboy service. They just didn’t seem interesting. So instead of telling you what to do. I got some inspiration from Obscene Serpent Religion. Use it for a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing or just roll and see what happens.

Enjoy!

One of the cool things going around is the 2.5 Dungeon. Just go check out the DM’s Craft Channel on Youtube. And if you remember from a long time ago I did my own little $20 Dungeon Project. So I figured I’d combine the two.

If you remember I just recently did the dungeon tiles using some cork I found in an old box. It was pretty simple. Use a metal straight edge to cut the tiles into usable sizes, paint them gray, and then used a Sharpie to draw the lines. That’s it. They’re light weight weight and seem fairly durable.
Instead of using cardboard for the wall sections. I used 3/4 inch square wooden dowels. It’s a little more expensive and heavier. But much more sturdy and durable. Plus I suck at using a hot glue gun. I experimented with smaller sizes like 1/2 or 5/8 but the just seemed too small. And 1 inch was much more expensive plus there’s always one person at the table who doesn’t see the orc “hiding” behind the wall. These were also pretty easy to make. I used a jig saw to cut the dowels. If you don’t then you’ll just have to muscle way through by hand. Then I sanded the cut ends and “top” two edges. Then gray paint and mark it off at roughly 1 inch intervals. Now, one note. When you cut the dowels, cut the small pieces first. It’s easier and much, much more safer.

The doors were also made from the 3/4 inch dowel cut into 1 inch pieces then stood on end so they can be easily differentiated from the walls. Also while I was at the hardware store, I picked a little bag of 1 inch diameter wooden plugs/disks. I painted these to look like a magic circle, a camp fire, a treasure hoard, and a well/pit.
All that stuff plus a little more fit into this handy little box that I picked up at Harbor Freight Tools for under $5. Note: They also have lots of inexpensive storage boxes for mini’s.

A little work done over the weekend for Blasters & Blackholes. I didn’t get shops done. That one is giving a bit of headache. But instead I added in another class that’s been bouncing around inside my head. The Paragon, in a nutshell, is a sort of a catch all class. I made it up as sort of a cross between a Jedi, River Tam, and Paul Atreides.

So here you go. Blasters & Blackholes V3

Not as good as the last batch. But hey more Reaper Bones and more orcs. If you remember last time it was some swordsmen (or should that be swordsorcs?). Just need to pick up that pack of archers then I think I’m done on the torture player characters with orcs front. Excuse me but I’ve got to run the FLGS tonnight.
