New Post from Goblin Punch How Windows WorkThere are a lot of windows in this dungeon, even in places where it wouldn’t make sense to put a window (between two dungeon room, for example).  Look out a window and you might see a sunny field, despite being five levels down in this architectural orgy.The windows […]

New Post from Goblin Punch Based on a dream I had last night.  Apparently, it is a Rich007OverviewThe world has drowned.  It seems to have drowned long ago.There only thing left is a castle.  It is a broken thing, worn smooth by the tender ministrations of the ocean.  It sits atop a jumbled pile, […]

PLANTS: Monsters, Spells, Items – Goblin Punch

New Post from Goblin Punch So I’m writing a plant-themed dungeon.I’ve never written something so strongly-themed before.  It just seems cheesy.  Lava dungeon with fire monsters.  Snowy mountain with ice monsters and slippery floors.I’m having more fun with it than I thought I would.  There’s plenty of diversity in plants.What is This Post?I’m going to […]

Moon City – Goblin Punch

New Post from Goblin Punch Still thinking about my Zelda-inspired dungeon campaign.  (Here are six of the dungeons.)The OSR seems to use cities as part of the adventure injection process.  They’re full of hooks (or at least, intrusive things that are difficult to ignore), adversaries, tax-collectors, thieves, and escaped basilisks.  Cities tend to be uneasy places, only […]

New Post from Goblin Punch I’ve been trying to play through all of the Zelda games.  It’s been a journey.Anyway, there’s something about the simplicity of it all that resonates.  Go to all of the dungeons, collect all of the items, defeat the evil boss in the center of the map.Of course, I still want […]

Impact – Goblin Punch

New Post from Goblin Punch So, you’re playing D&D and you’re fighting some orcs.  All the orcs are armed with feather dusters, so they actually incapable of harming anyone.  And your DM doesn’t give XP for combat, so they’ll  yield 0 xp upon death.This combat is a waste of time.  You’re just rolling dice until […]

WURMS: A continued DECLARATION against SCRAP PRINCESS, who knows NO DECENCY nor FORMAL DANCES – Goblin Punch

New Post from Goblin Punch There is a voice crying out in the wilderness, babbling nonsense with locust-stained lips, scratching chaos into the dirt beneath her.  This is SCRAP PRINCESS, who is shunned by the WISE and feared by the BRAVE.  Her writings consist of nothing but NONSENSE and THE EGGS OF GAWPING SERPENTS.  Wise […]
