Bennar Flamebeard - Talomir Tales Part 1

 

Bennar Flamebeard belongs to a proud lineage of warriors, knights, and paladins. An only child, he looks to continue on his family's honorable name. However, it has been tarnished by a recent incident between a rival clan of dwarfs, the Ungarts. Framed and cast out by the church he so faithfully protected, he seeks to redeem the Flamebeard's name and have his banner raised again in the church.

Let's Play Neon Road, a Micro RPG!

 

"An 80's style solo game." TAKE MY MONEY!

I was born in 1982, so you could say I didn't "grow up" in the 80's, I mean, I was 8 in 1990, still just a pup. I beg to differ though, as my love of 80's pop culture is strong and when I point to what era I'm from, it's firmly established in the 80's. That said, when I saw Neon Road, I knew I had to put up the money to buy it. By the way, this can be purchased on Amazon in print form or DriveThruRPG in PDF format. The book is written by Noah Patterson, well known for his Micro RPG books.

The world of Neon Road is set in alternate 1985. In 1976, nuclear bombs were dropped and the world almost destroyed. Fast forward your Betamax to 1985, now you're struggling to survive in this dystopian world.

Four Against Darkness Monster Cards Decks 1 and 2 Review

In this review, I will take a look at Monster Deck 1 and Monster Deck 2, add-ons for Four Against Darkness. Why do I say "add-ons?" Well, that's because you don't really need them to play but they do add a lot to the game by reducing the amount of dice rolling (still have to roll up dungeons, treasures, etc.). You simply pull a card for whatever you encounter; vermin, minions, weird monsters, and bosses. If this sounds interesting to you, then read on!

Twisted Dungeons a Four Against Darkness Supplement Review (Spoiler Free)

 

If you're like me, you like variety. Who doesn't? This is exactly what Twisted Dungeons adds. It does not necessarily give you a new mission other than slaying the final boss but it could. Maybe a town has hired your dungeon delvers to retrieve an item in a nearby dungeon. Your mage had a little too much booze at the local inn. That frozen dungeon looks a bit slippery, watch your step! You step into an old wizard's tower, what magical stuff could this hold? You keep looking for the final boss but he's no where to be found, maybe you can find some clues.

For use with SBH or any SBH rule system
Want a little spice in your solo/solitaire Song of Blades and Heroes games (or other games using the same rules engine)? Try this! I cooked it up in a few minutes so it might not be all that great. This can be used for solo and cooperative games.

Random Warband Composition for

Song of Blades and Heroes Engine Games

-Build a warband for yourself of any point value

-Roll 1d6:

1: the enemy has 50 more points than your warband

2: the enemy has 25 more points than your warband

3-4: the enemy has the same amount of points as your warband

5: the enemy has 25 less points than your warband

6: the enemy has 50 less points than your warband

-Roll on the enemy roster until you meet or exceed the total point value above

Sample enemy army list

Roll 1d6 for the overall commander

1-4: Orc Boss Q3+, C3 Leader pts 60

5-6: Orc Shaman Q4+, C2 Magic-User 38

Roll 1d6 on this list until you meet or exceed the point value of your band:

3-4: Orc Archer Q4+, C3 Shooter: Medium pts 29

5: Elite Orc Warrior Q3+, C3 pts 30

As I said, this is just a draft. Add profiles to your liking, 4-8 is probably the butter zone with a 1d6 or 2d6. Please enjoy!
