My on-going fantasy role playing campaign

Postby matakishi » Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:40 pm

I'm running a fantasy game for my usual players using the Black Hack rules and I'm going to bother you about it here.

Reports of all the games so far with lots of photos are here:
http://www.matakishi.net/frpg-adventures.html

The weekly newsletter I produce for the group and my notes for running the games (adventures but not really written for someone else to run, try at your peril) are available as free PDFs here:

Giant Mummy! Atomic Death Robot!!!!

So, so much gorgeousness!
Your players are very lucky.


I somehow hadn't heard of Black Hack before so I looked it up. Yes. I did groan at the pun. Looks like it could be very useful although every time I consider an OSR retroclone thingy, I see those big sad dragon eyes staring at me from my copy of Holmes Basic and feel disloyal...

It's not really a retro clone. It's a modern indy game with the original 4 character classes. Everything else is different. No GM dice rolling, no XP, damage by class not weapon, no bookkeeping for supplies and ammo etc all sorts of lovely goodness that makes for a fast and streamlined game. My group loves it and it got me writing fantasy scenarios after a 20+ year break so it must be good :)

This week the heroes enter the lair of the Ebeteen Shackleminds who built homes and shrines in the petrified heads of the Cinderwar Biogomorrhans. What perils await within?
Nothing could have prepared them for...the Spidermind!!!

Fun is the main criteria, so far we've been successful. Here's hoping it continues. The 'secret' I've found is to write something I'd like to play, this usually translates well into something the other players like playing too.

The blend of Sci-Fi elements with way out fantasy reads like Moorcock trying to fry his mind.
Really enjoying these. My sympathies with you for the invasion of the four legged fur beast upon the table. Mine finds that cardboard based terrain tastes delicious!
A wonderful blend of imaginative adventure and some very nice choices of miniatures.

The Guardian head reminds me very much of the fake Balok from the Star Trek episode 'The Corbomite Maneuver'.

That'll be because that's what the model is :) I didn't even bother to change his name.
