This week we have some exciting new updates! Other than the release of our map, and a personal table session (which is TOTALLY overdue), we started a new vlog series, Game Reviews in 5 Minutes or Less! Our first video is for Swords and Wizardry Continual Light. Enjoy all the awkward moments and lack of internet personality below!
We won't waste too much of your time before dropping the map on you today, but wanted to give a short update on our activities.
This week's update will be pretty short, but we're excited about it. Aside from many of our other projects going on, we've decided to take our posts and maps and make an ezine, followed by print on demand options. In addition to featuring the maps and articles, which will be polished up and and in some cases expanded, we'll also offer some additional content not published to the website. Some of this content will include additional maps and information on our campaign setting, In the Land of Ques. This will include race descriptions, geography, monsters, religions, history, items, and major events. We're excited! Let us know what you think about this idea in the comments below. We've already had an overwhelming positive response and hope you're as excited as we are.
Now, without further ado, here's your map:
Our schedule has been absolutely slammed recently. Don't get me wrong, that is an absolutely marvelous thing. We very much appreciate all of the encouragement and support the community has been giving us. Having the knowledge people are making use of our hard work really helps to keep us going.
Thank you, everyone.
And now for the actual reason why you're here: News and a free map.
The Underworld has forever been a place of mystery and unfathomable distances. Impossible to map, this week's map selection is a representation of the journey souls take. Distances are not given, neither are labels. The map is perfect to drop into any game.
This week's blog post won't be nearly as long as last week, but we do have some updates. First, here's your Map of the Week: The Goblin Warrens! Enjoy all the hand drawn goodness. Posted below the picture is a file, in case the picture has problems loading.
Happy belated New Year! It's been a pretty busy one for us, mostly because of the prviously mentioned illnesses, but we're starting to get back into the swing of work. As mentioned last week, our posts with alternating free maps and story hooks will begin again. At the end of this post, you will find your free map: the Desert Map by James Curwen.
We at Skinner Games had a ton of fun last year with our first sessions of Retro Roleplaying. We started out fumbling through the First Edition retro clone called OSRIC to play through the original I6 Ravenloft adventure. We continued with a change of pace and played a Superheoes game for several sessions using R. Talsorian's Fuzion system. And we began our live-play review of Cubicle 7 Entertainment's 5e Lord of the Rings campaign setting, Adventures in Middle earth. We hope you're having as much fun as we are and that our experiences with the games inspire you to try them out yourselves.
We have big things planned for the upcoming year. Although our schedule is subject to change, this is what we hope to bring to the proverbial table!
Greetings, Gamers! Here is the first update in a new push we're making to release content on a more regular basis for all of you. In this effort, We'll be making weekly updates to this News blog. Shock and awe. This plan involves alternating posts between Map of the Week and #RPGHook posts. This week's map is a hand-drawn map made entirely using the appendices in the 1st Edition Advanced version of the world's most popular roleplaying game! The image below was drawn on an 5.5 x 8.5 sheet of graph paper and has a resolution of 300 pixels. The rooms are intentionally left blank of items or descriptions so gamemasters can customize as they please. Flaws in the lines and design are intentionally preserved to give the map that 1970's after school feel.
Niklas has been a dreamer for many years and has recently decided to join with long term his associate, James Curwen, to bring their dreams of cheap, fun games to the masses.
