  1. My English Civil War stuff is mostly system neutral as written on the blog (though I do have a book in the pipeline for Lamentations of the Flame Princess, 'England Upturn'd', out in the next couple of months), lots of odds and sods here: http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/tradescants-ark.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/lore-garbage.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/yan-tan-tethra-methra.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/the-uncanny-threat-of-morris.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/the-barguest-dog-of-war.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/witchmarks-and-some-news.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/diggers-and-ranters.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/cavaliers-and-roundheads.html http://expanduniver.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/an-uncivil-war.html plus a couple of pieces in Undercroft Magazine (see http://whatwouldconando.blogspot.co.uk/) If someone wants me to write a BRP version I'd be more than happy to, but I do have another commission for LotFP to do first. The stuff isn't straight history - it does have plenty of magic and fantasy elements of the LotFP 'wierd horror' kind -'England Upturn'd' would make an equally suitable CoC scenario. One of my current group playing this game is a re-enactor, he 'served' with Gustavus Adolphus and is enjoying it (though the rabble of town militia and mutinous sailors he has recruited to bash the Royalists can't do the Swedish three rank volley for toffee).
  2. An announcement - Griffin Mountain on G+ using RQ2 rules (with a few tweaks from RQ3 and BRP - OK, quite a few tweaks) hopefully starting Sunday 18th November at 17.00 GMT (12.00 EST, 11.00 CST etc.) A chance to play a Chaosium classic, go big game hunting and get eaten by sabre tooth tigers.
  3. Sorry about the dealy, don't look in on this forum too often. Went OK - I don't think the players will be holidaying in Doz-Kham again any time soon, and they were in such a hurry to get out of town they forgot to bring any rations or water and had to go back and get some. They got as far as discovering some weird s.o.b. was massacring random gangs of nomads and arranging their bloody giblets into smiley faces on the desert sands, one of their number caught dysentry and they wished they had packed enough spices to make baboon edible. Unfortunately technical issues and the like meant that the second session was delayed and never did get underway and I dropped the game in favour of an attempt to run Griffin Mountain over G+ instead.
  4. Google+ is worth it, the free video conferencing has enabled me to link up and play with quite a number of old gamers to play old games I wouldn't have had the chance of playing locally. With the addition of Twiddla - soon to be emulated by G+ hangout extensions - you have got a dead useful package. Look up ConstantCon, start a few ore BRP based demonstration games and see who joins in.
  5. I will be running a Stormbringer 1st edition game on Google + hangouts next Saturday. All are welcome, come and join in. Title: Stormbringer: The Tale of an Egg Time: Saturday 15th October 21.00 BST (20.00 GMT, 16.00 EST, 15.00 CST etc) Hagar the Skeletal, the Beggar-Mage, wants the shell from the egg of a Dragon Turtle and is willing to pay any number of reckless, foolhardy and downright crazy adventurers to fetch it for him from the desolate, barbaric and chaos-tainted land of Yu. A one-off adventure only, soon to be appearing in print in Fight On!. (If it comes out in the next week DON'T READ IT.) Rules: Stormbringer 1st Edition, beginning characters. Pre-gen characters available, but if you want to dice up your own, let me know by e-mail and send me a copy. GM: Barry Blatt (If you add me to a G+ circle I am the one who looks remarkably like The Mekon, arch-nemesis of Dan Dare) Contact me on bazblatt@gmail.com.
