F72.33: Unlicensed Daycare Facility: A Playset for Flammable Hospital

Ever heard of Flammable Hospital ? It's an underground  Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rules mod/setting booklet about shenanigans at a hospital that is constantly on fire. The aesthetic harkens back to the Xerox & mimeograph days of underground zine distribution. It's definitely NSFW & batshit crazy gonzo. It requires a seasoned GM who is used to winging it because Flammable Hospital isn't playable on its own. The booklet is nothing but flavorful random tables you use to create a nonsensical adventure on the fly. It's great fun to play over video chat. And it's hard as heck to get your hands on a copy. I haven't even seen scans of this bad boy on the 'chans & torrent sites. But I happen to have a hard copy, given to me by a close confidant from the G+ days. There are precious few supplements to this supplement floating around the blogosphere. Try to track down a copy of Abuse of Antacids if you can; it is well worth the trouble. Following the DIY

Gammarauders (Extremely Tiny) Roleplaying System, Part 3

Way back in early 2014, I posted about the Gammarauders (Extremely Tiny) Roleplaying System , a supplement/spin-off to the Gammarauders board game. Later that year, I typed up the rules as a Google Doc . These rules, written by Zeb Cook, appeared in the Gammarauders comic published by DC Comics back in the late 1980s. As I pointed out, the rules as written are confusing and perhaps unplayable, but were worth preserving. Today, Brian Barrow dropped a comment on that old post pointing out he has done a re-layout of the rules and expanded on them with a homebrewed "v1.35 update patch."  While Barrow has made the rules actually work, his website and layout choices might strike some as a bit garish. Note that he also publishes a game that is a bit NSFW. Nonetheless,  I encourage you to go check out his rules updates .

Why Yes, Barbarian Prince Is Awesome

  I'm noticing an uptick in murmurings in the RPG/OSR/DIY/Solo blogospheres about Barbarian Prince in my RSS reader. This is a reminder of two things. First, there is an excellent re-skin of Barbarian Prince available in BoardGameGeek's file section by dumarest123 (aka Todd Johnson ). You should really check it out. It's my favorite version of the game, even though there are more variants and fan hacks posted in that file section. Second, the Barbarian Prince Hex Hack gygaxian democracy project I started still has a number of hexes that need to be filled. The excellent Ramanan Sivaranjan has turned this map into an interactive web page , but it would be even more awesome if we could fill every damn hex. Please take a few if you can. Ram recently reminded me on Discord that I still have to write an intro to this remix project, which I should probably get to soon or risk never even being considered for a Ramanan Sivaranjan Awards for Excellence in Gaming award  ( yeah
