CASTLE OLDSKULL - The Oldskull Necronomicon I

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 01:42
CASTLE OLDSKULL - The Oldskull Necronomicon IPublisher: Kent David Kelly

That is not dead which can eternal lie,

And with strange aeons, even Death may die.

(Al Azif, Necronomicon, Scroll 50, fin.)


THE GREATEST NECROMANCER of H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, Abdul Alhazred, comes to vivid and haunting life in this compelling first codex from the most fabled and infamous grimoire of black magic that the world has ever known: THE NECRONOMICON.

This book is a treasure trove for any Game Master who wants to embrace the old school of Fantasy Role-Playing Games. Herein lie the terrible secrets of Great Cthulhu and his cult, of the sunken city of R’lyeh, of Alhazred’s necromantic incantations, of the Nameless City, of Nyarlathotep, and the horrible cannibalistic Ghuls who stalk the storm-wrought wastelands of Yemen and Arabia. But know this: where horrors stride from between the spheres, there rises beauty as well. Experience the wonders of the life of Alhazred: the spice caravans, the Tower of Babel, the Hanging Gardens, the unearthly paradise of doomed Sarnath within the Dreamlands, and share in his dark adventures as he seeks to resurrect his lost beloved, the murdered Adaya. What is the horrible secret of Adaya’s second life, and how did Alhazred come to be the death-sworn enemy of the Cult of Cthulhu? All of the answers are to be found in The Oldskull Necronomicon.

Part epic horror, part dark fantasy, and part tomb-delving adventure, this book is not just an FRPG supplement. (Although it is that, first and foremost, and designed to fully support the Castle Oldskull line of releases.) Further, it is a vast and ambitious chronicle, the first of an epic series of tales exploring the revelations of the Cthulhu Mythos, meticulously researched as never before. It’s all here, structured as a fascinating tale which will entertain and move you as it inspires you to use the worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and the World of Oldskull in your own old school FRPG campaign.

(49,500 words, 240 pages.)


Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn ~

In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.

      Pilots' Almanac: Maritime & Piloting Rules

      Thu, 06/22/2017 - 22:14
       Maritime & Piloting RulesPublisher: Columbia Games Inc.

      The vocation of pilot is a perfect career for roleplaying. It provides an excellent and natural rationale for travel, exploration, and adventure. With this module, it becomes possible for PCs to go to sea and follow a career as pilot, pirate, or maritime trader. Of course, the distinctions between these occupations may be academic, since many PCs will dabble in all three.

      This module, a republishing of the 1988 classic, contains the following sections:

      • Pilot (16 pages): Pilots' Guild, vessel profile, piloting routine
      • Crew (10): Seamen's Guild, crew positions, crewing a vessel, life at sea, law at sea, crew list, crew routines, crew fatigue
      • Shipwright (12): Shipwrights' Guild, shipyards, ships (data on 12 types of ship), shipbuilding
      • Maritime Trade (6): Trade goods, maritime trade routine, buying and selling cargoes, longshore operations, port encounters, cargo manifest
      • Port Almanac (10): data on ports of Hârn, Ivinia, Shorkyne, and Trierzon.
      • Glossary of maritime terms (6)
      • Maps of Hârn, Ivinia, Shorkyne, and Trierzon regions

      Although these rules are designed for HârnMaster, they can be easily converted to other systems. About all that will be necessary is to convert the HârnMaster skill system to your own system. Or convert to HârnMaster; you will not regret it.

      Portes, Monstres & Trésors - Règles avancées - Livre du Joueur

      Thu, 06/22/2017 - 14:52
      Portes, Monstres & Trésors - Règles avancées - Livre du JoueurPublisher: Le Scriptorium

      PMT Avancé est une adaptation de l’Advanced Edition Companion (AEC) de Labyrinth Lord (LL) avec quelques ajouts et modifications. L’idée est de pouvoir bénéficier des nouvelles classes, races, magies et monstres de la première édition des règles avancées originales de 1978 tout en conservant la simplicité des règles B/X.

      Voici un récapitulatif des points importants de PMT Avancé :

      • C’est un jeu complet qui ne nécessite pas de posséder les règles de base de PMT, contrairement à l’AEC qui n’est qu’une extension et nécessite les règles de base de LL pour jouer.
      • A la différence des règles de base, les races et les classes sont séparées. Par exemple, on ne joue plus un nain, mais un guerrier nain.
      • 6 races sont proposées : humain, elfe, gnome, halfelin, nain, semi-elfe et semi-orc.
      • 11 classes sont disponibles : assassin, barbare, clerc, druide, guerrier, illusionniste, magicien, moine, paladin, rôdeur et voleur.
      • Alors que les règles de base étaient limités au niveau 14, vous pourrez jouer vos personnages jusqu’au niveau 20.
      • Par rapport à l’AEC, la présentation des classes a été revue avec une meilleure mise en évidence des capacités spécifiques à chaque classe.
      • Ajout de la classe du barbare, mais dans dans un style plus proche des héros de Sword & Sorcery (Conan) que des Berserkers.
      • Les équipements ont désormais droit à leur propre chapitre. Vous y trouverez plus de détails avec notamment l’ajout d’illustrations et de courtes descriptions des armes et des armures.
      • Tous les sorts de la version avancée sont présents, soit plus de 200 sorts allant jusqu’au mythique niveau 9. Certains sorts et objets magiques se basent plutôt sur les descriptions d’OSRIC que sur celles de l’AEC.
      • Le chapitre sur les sorts a été réorganisé pour plus de clarté, avec notamment l’ajout d’une explication sur les plans d’existence (qui sont évoqués par certains sorts) et un classement des sorts par ordre strictement alphabétique plutôt que par liste. Cela facilitera la vie des bricoleurs qui aiment créer leurs propres listes de sorts.
      • Ajout des règles de combat de masse.
