31 Days of Halloween, Day 4

Here we are at day 4 of my Halloween-themed challenge. Each day, I have been writing up a little vignette that can be used for your horror- or mystery-themed gaming session. Today it was generated using the Little Spaces: Burial Mounds product, which uses a slightly different (more Insta-NPCs-ish) approach with a collection of tables…

Now Available – Little Spaces: Pirate Ships!

Ahoy matey! It’s time to walk the plank and end up in Davey Jones’ Locker! Whether your characters have been landlubber all their lives or were born at sea and get ill when they touch dry land, it’s hard to fathom a campaign (whether fantasy, modern, or futuristic) without at least the possibility of pirates!…

Arrr, matey! You’ve been impressed onto a ghost pirate ship!

As I debated what should be written for Talk Like a Pirate Day 2014, I began pulling together a collection of random tables to inspire me. A few elements, a few descriptive terms, and the usual sensory table led me to a sad tale of a doomed pirate ship… I came up with an initial…

Five Encounters Direct from the Moon…

Working on the next Little Spaces product for inspiring moon-based encounters and such, I came up with the following examples: (Sight/Shape/Ringed) After the massive collision on the dark side of the moon, we saw the first of three rings form in close orbit above the surface from the dust and rock kicked into the thin…

Handprints Under Glass…

(A brand new Little Spaces product is coming out this week and I wanted to share a taste…) (Medium/In Stasis/10/Science/Wounded/Open Space) The emergency beacon was the only thing that caught our attention. The ship was far outside the usual trade lanes between Alpha and Betaverse. Not unusual for folks to get off course and find themselves…

A Handful of Graves in the City of the Dead in Venn

Venn exists as a trade center where three rivers meet to flow into the Inner Sea. At the center of the city is the City of the Dead, maintained by The Knells – a religious order organized with the sole purpose of dealing with the dead. Knell society revolves around death and a reverence for…

Who is buried here?

As PCs we seem predisposed to disturbing burial grounds, graveyards, and the realms of the dead. Sometimes it’s not our fault. Perhaps the undead are getting up to stretch their legs or there’s a necromancer or mad scientist sending his minions to dig up some new (old) body parts… or maybe we think there’s buried…

New Little Spaces “Big Book” Smashes Writer’s Block for Game Prep

Let’s face it. As GMs, sometimes it’s hard to come up with a compelling description for every single little thing your PCs may encounter during a game session. We do the best we can during our prep time and come up with the rest on the fly at the game table. But occasionally writer’s block…

We’re getting closer and closer to release time of the Big Book of Little Spaces: Haunts. (April 30, 2014!) And I want to share the fun, so we’re having a contest! Have you purchased any of the Little Spaces products from Moebius Adventures yet? If you have one (or can locate any of the Little Spaces design posts…

Little Spaces Design: Creepy Copses

As a writer, the word “copse” has always evoked a sense of dread as a description for a group of trees or shrubbery, almost as though a copse was similar to a corpse but of a vegetal variety. Because of this, I’ve always tried to work it into my own work somewhere. Thus, Little Spaces:…
