“I Know What You Did Last Adventure” - A New Way to Begin a Game

I love the Adventure Title Generator in the Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells - Addendum book and the one in Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells. I think they are so inspiring. When I generate a name, they always come with visual imagens in my mind and immediate plots that could transpire with a story with that name.

But a friend of mine has come up with a cool way to start a game using the Adventure Title Generator and make the players do all the work. His name is Filipe “Pep” and he calls this the “I Know What You Did Last Adventure” method!

Basically, when the game starts, you and your players randomly generate an Adventure Title using Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells - Addendum, Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells or the Lost Folios of Creation.

Dark Streets & Darker Secrets - Complete Game Text

November was NaGaDeMon (National Game Design Month), and I decided to create an Action Horror RPG using my system (updated with all the modifications of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells).

Inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, X-Files, The Chilling Tales of Sabrina, Grimm and many more TV Shows, comics and books, I quickly worte Dark Streets & Darker Secrets. It is written in a very direct and simple way, similar to Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells originally was, but with uodated rules and a lot of tools and tables to assist the Referee in creating adventures, NPCs, locations, artifacts, monsters and much more.

The book itself will eventually be release in partnership with Gallant Knight Games, but the text is already written and ready to be used, so I am sharing it here with you all! There is no official character sheet yet. I am working on it. But a simple Index Card will work just as well!

So here it is: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QlFYafvxvJAyk_zMgBNmC5TZ…

Anttelius - Athiggnus

Here is another preview of a culture from Anttelis - A World of Warlocks and Barbarians.


Athiggnus

The people that follows the moon, the Athiggnus are the most widespread nomadic people of Attelius. Seen by many as vagabonds and criminals, the Athiggnus have a rich and vibrant culture and a deep connection the the strands of Fate that bind all the living beings of this world. Or, at least, that’s what they believe.

These men and women of short stature, deep dark hair and ebony eyes, are a superstitious folk. They carry on their traditions with a rich oral culture of songs, stories and poetry. Art is very important to them, as it’s their main form of experience, since they do not have a written language.

The children of this people live as servants of their clan until the reach the age of twelve, when they undergo the ritual of passage to become adults, having their destinies read in the stars by the clan’s oracle. Many do not accept their lot and leave their families to forge their own pa…
