RIfts Advenure: Little Spaces - Space Crafts

So one of the GM aids that I use to write and create dungeons is a set of small books called Little Spaces, you might have heard of these being available on the website.

These books are great for GM's who want to add an extra level descriptive detail to a dungeon, they are well laid out and very easy to follow.

Below are some of the example descriptions that I used in my recently run Rifts adventure.

Description of space station
Size: Medium
State: Abandoned
Population: D100 (I rolled 41, this included baddies and escaped NPC's)*
Crew Status: Dead or escaped. Escaped wasn't on the table, but I wrote this into the adventure.
Mission: Discovery

The above rolls gave me enough of a starting point to be able to build the core idea for the adventure and also figure out the size and shape of the space station.

Lost Mines of Phandelver - The End.

And so the final chapter in our first group foray into the world of D&D 5th Edition has come to an end, and what an end it was.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****.
There were Hobgoblins, Undead, Ankhegs, more Undead, Giant Mushrooms that stank and the final fight with Black Spider.
Here are some pictures of the epic dungeon that we played on Saturday, as you can see from the pictures our DM created a huge set piece dungeon from nothing more that a tonne of polystyrene, paint, sweat and love and what can I say apart from that it was amazing.
We started gaming at around 11am GMT on Saturday and we finally finished the dungeon 16 hours later on a early Sunday morning. 
Enjoy the pictures.
And so we begin, everything looks nice and tidy at this point of the day. Needless to say by the end of the dungeon and 16 hours later there were a lot more cups of coffee, food wrappers and tired gamers strewn about the place.

As you can see the dungeon was made from a huge SLAB of polystyrene which was then crafted,…

Ark of the Mad Mage - update

Hi all, 

So I set up this blog to document a AD&D dungeon that I created/copied which is based on the excellent pod casts and PAX 2013 D&D dungeons run by Chris Perkins for his "(in)famous" D&D crew.

If you have seen or listened to these pod casts and videos then you will know the back story of what this dungeon was and how is played out with the DM and players. However I wanted to re-create the dungeon for my group of gaming friends so that they could experience the game for real.

When I first set out to write this dungeon I spent a lot of time listening, watching and then re-listening and re-watching the various pod casts and videos so that I knew the original dungeon concepts inside and out. 

Hopefully you will enjoy what I have presented here and you will be able to see how I moved from the original concept of bringing this dungeon to the table and how it finally played out.

I haven't informed any of my friends who I am running this dungeon for that I have set…

Lost Mines of Phandelver - Thunder Tree Village

So me and my gaming friends got together again at the weekend to play the next part of the D&D adventure Lost Mines of Phandelver.

Here are some photos taken by myself and one of the other players.
The first set of pictures show the village of Thunder Tree, we travelled here to find a druid who we hoped would help us find Cragmaw Castle.
The village of Thunder Tree
The ruins of Thunder Tree
Outside of the druids tavern, we had a big fight with a horde of Ash Zombies and the druid got out some popcorn and watched the battle.
Green Dragon lair....not quite big enough for his liking so he might be moving home soon.
Awesome Ettercap that we fought, this was made by the DM and scared the hell out of party.
