31 Days of Halloween, Day 5

Day 5 already? Wow. How time flies! Here’s today’s vignette, inspired by Little Spaces: Horrid Hallways. This is more of a straight-up horror plot, though it could be twisted easily into an Urban Fantasy, Dresden Files-style adventure. Rolling some virtual dice I ended up with two senses – Smell & Touch, the descriptive element of Neighbor, and…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 3

Here we are at day 3 of my Halloween-themed challenge. Each day, I will write up a little vignette that can be used for your horror- or mystery-themed gaming session. This time it even seems a bit Doctor Who inspired, so it might fit into a modern or science fiction context or even a fantasy…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 1

As Halloween approaches, I’m working through the month of October a day at a time, creating tiny vignettes of descriptions, encounters, and NPCs that might be used in a horror- or mystery-themed adventure for the holiday. Each will be based upon a Moebius Adventures product and the entire 31 days will be released as its own…

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.

Little Spaces: Scary Basements Is Now Available!

The second Halloween-themed Little Spaces release is now complete! Little Spaces: Scary Basements offers a way to help generate creepy descriptions of your horrific subterranean basements… Why anybody goes down into them is beyond me… Do they have a death wish? But you can’t have an EMPTY basement for your horror story, can you? Little…

Little Spaces Design: Scary Basements

Today we’re going to look at a slightly modified approach to the next Little Spaces supplement – Scary Basements. The idea for this one is much like it was for Ghostly Effects – to offer some inspiration when describing spooky places for your Halloween-themed game. In this case, it’s all about those creepy basements you see in horror…

RPG Review: Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots To Inspire Game Masters

Have you ever found a sandwich that’s so big, juicy, messy, and full of sandwichy goodness that you can’t figure out where to start eating it? That’s kind of what happened when I grabbed a copy of Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots To Inspire Game Masters by the authors of GnomeStew.com. This book should be like…
