I miss Planet Algol!

     I know a lot of cool blogs are out there that aren't updated anymore, one blog that is still out there but hasn't been updated in almost a year is Planet Algol.  In particular I love Blair's posts on his Planet Algol Campaign Setting, WOW just WOW, there was talk of it being published at one point, he even teased some of the art (all of it looked great!!), but nothing has been said about that in ages. *Sigh*  I would love to play in such a Campaign.  Very cool Weird Sci-Fantasy Kinda Gonzo Fun! I was thinking the rules from Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea would work nicely with this setting.  Instead of Vikings, Celts, and Kimmerians the players could be Nire Witches, Vlesh Men, Bone Men and heck it even has its own version of Hyperboreans! See there is a connection!!
 : )  Hmmm...maybe I need to try to run a game of this! 


  1. Hell yes, he needs to publish that bad boy. Because I want it, and to hell with whatever inconvenience that causes!

    1. I want it too Pat, such a cool campaign setting!

  2. Oh yes! I know, what ya mean. Missing Algol because it was my start into OSR-Weirdness.

    Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea would be perfect for this! Man...I miss Algol... :(

  3. If Blair is reading this the world does need more planet Algol.

  4. I did some of that art.
    It was my favorite blog while it was active.

  5. I too miss Planet Algol. It changed my whole outlook on gaming. I am damn tight with my gaming dollars, but I would pay for anything Algol that Blair puts out just like I do Pat's ASE stuff. If ever there was a perfect setting, I'd say Algol comes pretty close. I'd recommend Planet Psych on for any Algolphiles as well.
