Cards for Into the Odd and OSR Duels – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone Follow-up to my previous post on dueling rules for Into the Odd. If you’re using Emmy Allen’s excellent rules for OSR duels or my modification of those rules to work with Into the Odd, it’s useful to have a set of playing cards for each duelist to select their actions […]

Dueling Rules for Into the Odd – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone EDIT Re-written and re-posted to remove endorsements of unworthy people.EDIT 2 I had a chance to use these rules in a recent game. They really worked!

Dueling Rules for Into the Odd – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone In a recent campaign log, I mentioned that I was unhappy with the Into the Odd dueling rules that I made up mid-game.

New Post from The Scones Alone A little while back on the Into the Odd Discord server, I shared out my notes on converting the bestiary from A Red & Pleasant Land for use with Into the Odd or Electric Bastionland.

A Red & Pleasant Land, Part 13: You get a duel! And you get a duel! – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone Prep time Since I no longer have any sample locations in the book to fall back on and am usually very bad about preparing detailed adventures ahead of time, I’ve been trying to make improvements to my in-game toolkit. Before this session, I’d done a lot of work with the […]

DIY RPG Productions Rules Development Notes- Starting at the Beginning – Wrath of Zombie

New Post from Wrath of Zombie Ok…  let’s start at the beginning- When I started looking at developing my own rules the first thing I looked at was roll under or roll over. I LOVE the simplicity of The Black Hack and Into the Odd and I got to experience the joy of watching players […]

"Into the Odd" is "Left 4 Dead" – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone There was a discussion today on the Into the Odd Discord about how to describe “generic” Critical Damage and recovery. What do you tell players happened to their characters when they fail a STR save? What exactly do their allies do to get them back on their feet?My response […]

Use Critical Damage to make your critters memorable – The Scones Alone

New Post from The Scones Alone Earlier today, I answered a similar, Into the Odd related question asked on both G+ and /r/osr. The question was, basically, how to go about converting old school, B/X style creatures to ItO. My answer echoed earlier advice I’d heard from Chris McDowall — don’t sweat the numbers. Make your […]
