I started a new job this past week, the good news is its a big career move for me, the bad news is it will take up most of my free time for awhile as I get a handle on everything. Soo my posts may be infrequent, but have no fear (LOL) I'm still around. To celebrate, I placed another Lulu order today, I had to order the new Labyrinth Lord supplement: Realms of Crawling Chaos it just looks too cool to pass up (plus it has rules for White Ape characters!!, and you all know what a Simian Fan I am!) I also spotted a new Tunnels & Trolls supplement: New Khazan. Sounds like Tunnels & Trolls in Spaaace!
Dragonstar back in the day, this seemed like a perfect match/resource for that setting. I'll post about both products when they arrive. Later,
Well both products have arrived. Realms of Crawling Chaos far exceeded my expectations. It's a great resource for injecting some Lovecraftian coolness into your LL/MF campaigns.
However, regarding New Khazan...I'm rather disappointed. For the $19.99 price tag, I don't feel like I got my money's worth. There just isn't enough to it for one thing, the art goes from ok to fair to poor, and the editing is rather poor. While I am in no way a spelling/grammar nut, in some places the grammar is so poor that its hard to even understand what the writer is trying to say. There are some nuggets scattered here and there in the book, but I've seen way better out there for cheaper or even free. As for using it as a resource for Dragonstar like I had hoped, there are a few items in there, some of the planets will work, a few of the critters/beasties are useable, but to be honest I see this as being a better resource for an Encounter Critical game than anything else. It even has a brief reference to Planetary Apes er, I mean well you get my drift.
