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.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

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



I.
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…

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
