Quick Review - Star Temple of Saturgalia

White Star+James Spahn's sci-fi adaptation of Sword & Wizardry's White Books rules have been a resounding success and is probably the hit of the year. So no surprise that in exactly 1 week from its release we see the first 3rd party adventure being released on OBS.

The Star Temple of Saturgalia  by Darrel Miller of DM Studios is a small 6 page adventure for low-level heroes and is very much the traditional dungeon crawl style adventure with some mild outer space/world travel and random encounters.

From OBS:

You and your team have been sent, or forced to go, to the Star Temple of Saturgalia. There you hope to find the fabled Star Amulet that may turn the tide in the Space War. Ignite your Star Saber, strap on your blaster, and prepare to avoid the Imperial Customs - you're going on an adventure. Prepare to enjoy a couple of hours of FUN!!!

An adventure crafted for OSR games, and is compatible with Sword and Wizardry and White Star.

The adventure is rather straight forward and to the point. The players are sent to retrieve a relic of the lost Star Knight age. On their way they may run a foul any number of the various dangers that present themselves in the world and in the end may hinder a threat to both the Star Knights and The Way.

At six pages the adventure may occupy a single night of play and with its low-level attention can be used as a way of jumping into a longer campaign I wish the desert planet had been a little more fleshed out and perhaps a little more to the temple at the adventures end ... but all in all a nice little romp into a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

The Star Temple of Saturgalia can be picked up at any of the OBS sites for $1.00.

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.



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…

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

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 …
