Look What Came in the Mail Last Week!


I tried to line this up so I looked a bit like Skeletor.

 The Manor #3, by the most excellent Tim Shorts. I will honestly say I do not remember ordering this, so either I have a faulty memory, Tim made a mistake, or Tim comped me an issue. At any rate, this is a most excellent issue. The Mine of Rot & Disease is a great low-level one-shot adventure for Swords & Wizardry that focuses on a small villlage and the strange goings on in a local mine. I dig the old school aesthetic of the art. Here's what I mean:

Beware the Legless Skeleton of Death!

There is also a nice write-up of a Goblin NPC merchant & his wares, and another article detailing a new class for John Stater's Blood & Treasure RPG.

For a great in-depth review, go over here to Tenkar's Tavern or here, to Tabletop Diversions.




Why lookee here! It's CRAWL!zine #6! This issue is devoted to new Character Classes for the DCC RPG.  You get complete write-ups for the Bard, the Gnome, the Paladin, and the Ranger, plus a new spell and a write-up of expanded thief options. I heartily recommend a subscription to this fine zine.

Ha, you have a subscription. It had been such a long stretch since you ordered it and the release of the 3rd issue you and a few others forgot also. Glad you liked it good call on CRAWL!

Hi, I'm Tim's wife and I forgot to draw the legs. Your post made me laugh and it was exciting to see my artwork on your blog.

Thanks for making my day.

Cheers and boogie boogie.

Look at that, I couldn't get my comment through and then it went through twice. And I see I left out the boogie boogie on the second one.

Boy, I really have problem leaving things off.
Whisk, it looks great even without the legs!!

You should be shouting, "For the Honor of Greystone!" Oh wait that was He-Man or She-Ra...guess I'm getting forgetful :(

@Whisk: If you think about it, legless skeletons are a hell of a lot scarier than the legged kind. You know they REALLY want to kill you if they're scrabbling up on their hipbones to swing a sword at your crotch.
