My Brain Is About To Explode

If you’ve been following my mundane life, I just got a new day job and that means I haven’t been blogging or writing as much as I used to or as much as I want to. But I did give myself a couple of presents over the last couple of weeks that really enriched my limited reading time.
While I was at the FLGS, I noticed this little beauty sitting on the shelf. I have the PDF but a hardcopy was just too good to pass up.

Now I’ve been playing thru the 5E version of Ravenloft. It’s classic. It’s, well, almost normal. Red and Pleasant Land takes vampires and weirdness to whole new and wonderful level. If you’ve never picked this up or looked at it. Then you’re really missing out. I won’t bore you with another review. If you want you can check out my original review before I started doing all of my gaming posts on this blog.
And speaking of Zak S. Here’s his new. The Maze of the Blue Medusa. Just freaking wow.

To put it bluntly, this is most awesome mega-dungeon I’ve seen. I don’t say that lightly because generally I’m not too fond of mega-dungeons but this one hits all the right marks. It makes sense. It’s easy for the GM to use. Although in the basic PDF there aren’t any hyperlinks which is a bit of a drawback. It’s to the point without the corny boxed text. It take so many familiar ideas and twists them just enough to make them exciting and interesting. As far as the looks. If you like the vibe of Vornheim and Red and Pleasant Land. This one continues with Zak’s style. Much smarted people than me have done wonderful reviews, just google it. Any way check it out. Buy it.
And lastly. I’ve finally picked what has become yet another classic for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. World of the Lost.

What can I say? Rafael Chandler strikes again. Dinosaurs. Ray Guns. Aliens. All set in an African backdrop. It’s odd. It’s crazy. It’s just freaking genius. And it’s one of those adventures that just keeps on giving with all sorts of random tables that you can use again and again. Oh. and it’s a hex crawl. And I love hex crawls. That you can grab up on Drivethru.
I know that probably when you started reading this post you were expecting in depth reviews. Sorry. I’m just doing a bit of blog based brainstorming and throw stuff out there. You see. There’s a good chance that I might be running a little 5E game at the FLGS in the future and I’d like to throw something new and interesting at the players. Something that will entertain and challenge veteran players and something that can show the new players that the game worlds don’t start and end with the Monster Manual. There’s so many creative things that can be done and these are just three awesome examples.
