Quick Review - Murderhobos

Murderhobos was released yesterday as a pay what you want product on Drivethrurpg. It is a 6-page extremely low rule game system. The game essentially boils down a roleplaying game into its core component (in the writer of Murderhobos that is combat) and leaves everything else from monster creation to world building to the Game Master.

The Murderhobos website has an example of play that goes a long way toward teaching any respective player how-to play ... and honestly once one person knows how to play there is no need for the majority of the small book as it is very simple to pick up.

Given that it is a pay what you want product I would recommend picking it up just for the laughs its character class descriptions can offer. As anything else the combat system is solid and fast paced and the whole thing screams out for some gonzo play.

I won't lie, however, Murderhobos was picked up because I was expecting a fantasy version of the most awesome Hobomancer. While not what I was hoping for, Murderhobos doesn't disappoint and I can see myself running this on a pick-up flail or as a dead table con game.

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.
