Hakkenslash - Nice and Simple

Hakkenslash is a simple xd6 system created by fellow blogger +S.D. Houston. I'm still fiddling with the system and making character sand throwing them at the monsters provided in the release, but I can say that as it stands, this may replace my own modified S&W system for the game I play with the kids on the weekend. It is so far very fast in its creation of characters and combat flows pretty good.

The game is still in playtest mode and so things ill change, improve and small spelling and grammar mistakes will go away, but I urage everyone who hasn't already heard about it to go and check it out!

Drivethru RPG Link: (Pay-what-you-want, but I'd say be nice to S.D. and give him something for his work)

Google + Community: (you can find links to the character sheet, the rules and great people here)

Now, let us hope S.D. doesn't kill me because I jumped the gun a little.


  1. Thank you for the kind write-up. I'm glad you like it so far! Indeed there are still improvements to be made (and some editing), which I'm currently working on and will have more opportunity to review after some playtest feedback.

    My own playtest so far has been really positive and my players really enjoyed the quick character creation and the active defense system, enough that they've opted to use it in lieu of the AC system for our weekly S&W game lol.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
