Battlemap: Shrine of the Bronze Dagger

Battlemap: Shrine of the Bronze Dagger is a free fantasy battle map usable with both RPGs and tabletop miniatures. The map shows a shrine, and the living quarters of a dark cult. It occured to me that it would also be great for a Cthulhu mythos adventure using the Pulp Alley games, so I’m going to download it.

Ysgarth Fantasy Role Playing System

I remember Ysgarth from my role playing days in the late 1970s. The game first was published in 1979. It was one of a number of fantasy rpgs that I remember we tried before finally settling on the Warhammer Fantasy Role Play.

Ysgarth has got a pretty complex system of skills and attributes, but action is resolved on a simple d100 (that is, you roll 2d10s and read them as separate decimals)

Tor.Com Science Fiction and Fantasy Website

Tor.Com is the official website of science fiction and fantasy publishers Tor, but its content is so much more than promotions for the latest books. I was reminded of how much I enjoy it when I received the latest newsletter/update. The site has articles on “The Trial of Galadriel,” the return of X-Files, Game of Thrones, the hHstory of Black Science Fiction, and more. The site also has short fiction free for the reading. Highly recommended.
