News: Old School Character Sheets

July 2019: I am extremely pleased to announce the publishing of my forty-second book, the accessory supplement Old School Character Sheets. These Character Sheets were designed by yours truly, for use with OSRIC, 1E and most Old School retro-clone games. They are available for purchase right now in PDF format!

What sets these sheets apart from others? First, they are not generic, but provide sheets specific to the character class, with appropriate class information on the first page; and second, I provide form-fillable sheets which may be completed on your computer. You get two sets of sheets (fillable and non-fillable) for the same price, and you can choose to print them out and fill them in by hand OR complete them on your computer, and then print them out or save them for later!



News: The Endless Lair II

June 2019: I am very happy to announce the release of my forty-first book and my second solo adventure: The Endless Lair II. This is a sequel to my first solo module, Endless Lair, whish was released in May 2019. It is currently available to purchase now in PDF format!

In this module, you will take on the role of a seasoned adventurer who has chosen to test your mettle against the deeper depths of a world renowned maze. Will you survive to boast of your exploits? Or will you fall, like so many other would-be heroes? Only the Gods can say!

For years would-be heroes have challenged the maze and these worthies have consistently stated the maze consisted of five separate “sections”. This fact has been sacrosanct…until now. A worthy champion has returned from the Endless Lair to report the discovery of a new portion of the maze! Dare you challenge the new maze alone, adventurer?

This supplement contains a completely original solo adventure, which is intended for a single player character of 4th to 6th level. This module presents the player with deadly challenges and, true to Old School sensibilities, death will be the rule and not the exception in this maze. However, those brave souls who do survive can proudly claim they have bested the deeper depths of The Endless Lair! You can play with any of the five pre-generated player characters provided, or your own character; and try and try again until you succeed!

This adventure may also be easily modified to suit a party of 4-6 player characters of 4th to 6th level, should a GM wishes to run this adventure with a group.

News: Shrine of Sacrifice

February 2019: My first stand alone one-shot of 2019 is a scary tale full of undead and demonic foes!  I'm happy to announce the release of my thirty-fifth OSR book, SO13 SHRINE OF SACRIFICE! It is available now as a PDF.

This book is a undead themed one-shot adventure intended for a group of 4-6 players of levels 4th to 6th level. It is my thirteenth one-shot adventure and the fifth to take place in the Red Eagle Barony. It is, however, the first to provide information on the vast woods of the Dlutha Forest, located in the Red Eagle Barony.

Long ago, dark elves attacked and attempted to overrun the shrine, with the aid of a succubus. The evil forces’ tunneled up into the oldest part of the shrine complex and a hard fought battle ensued between the two elven forces. The elves of light won the day when the shrine’s caretaker, calling on Corcul’lain’s power, trapped the demon and then sacrificed herself by calling an earthquake that destroyed the dark elves and their tunnel, thereby ending the invasion. With the demon trapped and the invaders dead, the site was sealed and wards and watchers placed over it. Over time, some of the corpses of the dead invaders have become undead due to the polluting negative plane energy flowing from the trapped demon.
