Lost in the Fantasy World and Maze of Many Portals


Nathan Treme is a freaking genius and started this magnificent Dungeon Pamphlet Jam over itch.io (although I can’t use it because it does not accept PayPal). He has been created some great small adventures and dungeons in pamphlet format and sending it to backers of his patreon and selling the PDFs over DriveThruRPG.

I, obviously, wanted to join this jam and do something with this charming format. So I did something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. An RPG inspired by a cartoon that was inspired by an RPG, the classic Dungeons & Dragons series of the 80s! So using the things I was designing for my kid’s RPG and some other gaming influences I made a quick and simple system that offer enough options to be interesting to more mature players but that still fit in a single pamphlet. The game is called Lost in the Fantasy World!

In it, you play as a kid or teenager who was teleported to this fantastic world of adventure and been give a powerful magical artifact by this enigmatic figure called Mentor (who is played by the referee) and now seeks a way back home. The blurb of the game is the following:

Lost in the Fantasy World is an adventure game where players assume the roles of kids from our world who have been magically transported to a fantasy world with magic and monsters. They must now try desperately to get back home. But they did receive these amazing artifacts from a mysterious Mentor. These make them very powerful, but force them to often choose between going home or staying to help the native people with their many plights.

This is an ideal game for when you have a small amount of time to kill and a lot of imagination. All you will need is this pamphlet printed out, some index cards for notes a few D6s a your friends!

I have also created a adventure pamphlet to accompany the game called Maze of the Many Portals, in which the PCs are tricked into going to a sinister maze and open portals to other worlds so they can get back home. Obviously, things don’t go according to their plans, and they will need to make some tough choices in the end.

You can grab the PDF of the RPG Pamphlet as a PWYW product on DriveThruRPG (the adventure isn’t available as PDF yet).

Or you can acquire them both in print, through the mail, sending me your address and 6 dollars through PayPal to diogosnog at gmail dot com!

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…

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells - Complete RPG in Draft Text

Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells IndieGoGo campaign ended about a month ago. It was my first crowdfunding campaign by my own (we made one for the Brazilian version of Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells to pay for a print run and some other stuff), and so far I am really happy with it (even though the currency exchange is quite bad for me, as I receive less for the dollar than I pay for it).

Anyway, one of the last goals of the project was to release a artless version of the game for free too, to make the game more accessible and easy to use. So why not share the current draft of the rules here too with character sheets to go with it. This way you all can play the game while we wait for it to be ready!

So grab the complete Draft Text of Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells RPG here! It takes some time to load all the content, but it's worth it, I promise you!

Grab the Character Sheets here, and here!
