One Page Dungeon sent out

Well, I bit the bullet and drew up a quick adventure for the One Page Dungeon contest. It's titled The Lost Staves of Maurath. It's a fun little low-level dungeon crawl, so it will be cool to see how far it can go.

Those of you interested in putting something together for the contest, you still have time. Click the link above for details and get something sent in before May 14th!

The 4C System FASERIP clone

I was a big, big fan of the original Marvel Superheroes RPG from TSR. My friends and I spent hours playing our favorite heroes (and I even attempted a game as Howard the Duck).

Well, there's a free public domain release clone of this "FASERIP" system called the 4C System. You can download it here.

You can also find the forum 4C4Ever! (dedicated to the 4C System) here.

This is great for the indy publishers interested in providing new material for this classic game. In fact, once the Labyrinth Lord adventures I have planned are finally finished, Prime Requisite Games might set its sights on publishing some 4C material. We'll have to see what the future holds.

Here's to much success to 4C.

A couple of Green Devil Faces

James Edward Raggi IV over at LotFP has released Green Devil Face #1 and #2. This seems like an excellent community effort spearheaded by Mr. Raggi to enhance our game-time with early FRPGs and their clones.

The section titles are clever (Mummy Tar Trap Room of Death, The Lumberjack is Not OK, Yet Another Stupid Giant Chessboard, just to name a few). Plus, the cover to #2 is cool as hell.
