Lost in the Fantasy World Deluxe Edition is coming soon!

Some of you may already know my game Lost in the Fantasy World. I released it in a very condensed format at a RPG Pamphlet a few months ago. It’s a game inspired by those stories of kids and teenagers that get into a Fantasy World and receive great power and importance in there, while also trying to find their way back home but get stuck in that setting for many different reasons. I created a minimalistic narrative system for it inspired amongst other games (it’s hard to keep track of all influences) by Alan Bahr’s Tiny D6 and Evil Hat’s FATE (it is however its own thing).

Now I am going to publish what I am calling the Deluxe Version, which expands the game, keeping its simplicity, but offering some more rules options, tools to generate Characters, Monsters, Locations, Adventures and much more. It also has sections with guidance and good practices for playing it, introducing kids into the hobby and helping them run their own games.

Finally, the book also comes with a section containing information regarding the Fantasy World, the nominal setting of the game. Each with a brief description and tables to generate hooks and events to drive gameplay.

I’ve been playing Lost in the Fantasy World for a while, including with my 4 year old son and I have friends running it with kids, adults and even seniors. It’s a great game for introducing new players and for those that want to have freedom to create their characters and want a system that gets out of the way so they can create amazing stories centered around friendship and the quest to find where they belong.

Here are some pictures of the layout process! Once I am done (I need to make some artwork too), we will decide how we are going to release it.

My RPG Zine Trilogy is on Kickstarter!

 I can't believe I didn't post about it here! The Dead are Coming, Screams Amongst the Stars and Running Out of Time are on Kickstarter right now! These are 3 complete games, made using the system of Electric Bastionland and Mausritter as the basis (and with some modifications to fit my vision for each of them). As with my games, they all come filled with many tools and tables to generate gaming content, adventures, locations, NPCs and much more. They are compact, easy to use, and equipped to provide you with years of entertainment! Here's a brief description of each of the games. The Dead Are Coming The first of them is called The Dead Are Coming, a minimalist, OSR style RPG about survival in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead have risen and other survivors can be much worse than the undead. Characters in this game are common people who have been struggling to survive, find their loved ones, keep them safe and just trying to keep living. They all carry resources like

How to never describe a dungeon!

Artwork by Luigi Castellani I've heard it a thousand times. You probably heard it too. Some people , I don't know why, say that dungeons , especially large ones, are boring . The endless repetitions of rooms and corridors and having to choose to go left, right, north or south depresses them. I don't know why. Actually, I do know why. Because they don't really know how to run a dungeon in play. It seems easy, effortless. Just say what's in the room the PCs are in and where the passages going out of it go. But it's not. They get bored with the "you get to a intersection and there is a door to the north and two passages, one going east and one going west" because that's a terrible way of describing a dungeon environment and gives nothing really useful to the players to choose from. You never describe a dungeon like that . There's a lot more going on that we can initially see. A good referee will take all the context of what the dungeon w

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:
