d100 Castaways

Slow going this month with posts but I've been busy with adult stuff.
Here is a link to Tenkar's Landing aka the Black Isle, I apparently wrote almost a quarter of. Doh of course I tend to cringe at my own mistakes and why i stopped working with OSR collab stuff but this is pretty amazing and was a few years in the making before my banhammer. Self loathing aside Im enjoying it.


I chose a empty sea hex added some mountains and a huge underdark with citadel generators, orc tribe generators, ogre mutations, crystal caves which might be handy for a veinscrawl also.

Links on Tenkars page and he deserves the hits for presenting this - several years in the making http://www.tenkarstavern.com/2018/07/the-tavern-chat-podcast-episode-65.html

Return of the Reptilians



























This is a guide to lizard folk around the world. Some have exotic abilities.
My generic lizard men not as amphibious as standard dnd ones.
Might do a reptilian warzone post. Done reptilian mutations.
As my new setting im working on has reptilian remnants everywhere I thought this would be handy but it does overlap with my beastmen project.

Notes


Marine Iguana Folk
Green-blue warty hide with dorsal spines, some with red colour or with algae on skinHold breath for up to an hour, swim at normal movementThis ancient tribe live in basalt islands covered in ancient ruins they may have once built as slaves long ago. They are naive about affairs and people off shore but slavers have been kidnapping them to use as pearl divers.  Some islands are more wary. Some dwell in underwater caves often with pre human ruins in them. They do eat meat and shellfish but mostly subsist on marine algae, seaweed and cactai. Many think them hideous and monsterous but they are one of the friendlier breeds who can be convinced to help with underwater exploration or investigating ruins. They prefer tridents, nets and obsidian bladed daggers and war clubs but these are mostly stored in secret caves or used for fishing.


Thorny Devil Folk
Tan, some black and yellow or umber
Covered in thorny warty spikes, survive with 10% water of similar size creatures

This desert race look devilish but are mostly peaceful desert dwellers who make sand art and desert topographic art which they use as maps to locate tasty giant ants and water. Well concealed in desert areas especially rocky outcrops. Will eat other giant insects and people if given a chance as they waste very little and carry few tools. Most use throwing sticks, clubs, small wooden shields, boomerangs, javelins, darts and atlatl (woomeras, also a club, digging tool and bowl). They weep tears of blood if sad or wounded.

Gila Folk

Red and black or yellow and black mottled patterns
Large +1-2HD, with a venomous bite save or 2d4 necrotic damage over an hourLarge feared monsters dreaded by neighboring peoples but actually they are peaceful and exploited. Slavers enjoy their reputation and size as harem guards, pit fighters and gladiators. Some people recognise them as peaceful and respect their preference to be left alone. They often use spears, shields, huge war clubs and mauls. Some lick their weapon edges before combat.

Frill neck Folk
Tan, yellow or grey, some turn red or pink when angry
When enraged a large skin frill becomes erect making them look huge

Live in forests and deserts and mountain, they are quick runners on all fours 15" or two legs 12" and skilled at hiding. When defensive their frills erect, some change colour and they hold their mouths open and hiss. Mostly live in small families and use simple technology. 

Chameleon Folk

Ghekko 
Various colour schemes depending of environment, soft skin, some partly transperant
Large padded toes  to cling to any service (Surprise 1-3in6), large eyes (surprised on 1in6)

Peaceful insect hunters often live in caves, cliffs and forests. AC one point worse than most lizard folk. Very nocturnal and hunt by night. Some more civilized ones enjoy wizardry also but thieves are quite common among them. Javelins, nets, clubs and atlatl most common weapons but some use blowpipes also. 

Goanna
Often coloured for camoflage in forest or desert,Expert trackers using large tounges, Diseased bites save or half STR and Mov for a d3 days

Turtle
Blue green scales some with algae for hair or shellfish growing on plastron
Plastron shell AC15, Swim at foot speed, hold breath 40 minutes 

Turtle folk can often be hundreds of years old, are very wise and patient. They can be a bit crabby and crotchety and absent minded when old. Some breeds are more maine oriented but tortoise folk are less aquatic often living in deserts and anywhere far from humans. Both types often live on islands building stone citadels where they keep their ancient knowledge. They enjoy singing but most other races don't appreciate it. Often use maces and spiked clubs.

Cobra
Mostly brown often with yellow or green diamond markings
Venomous bite, some breeds can spit blinding venom instead

Cobra men are a tropical serpent man race notorious for cults and their ancient jungle ruins. They are despicable vile evil creatures who unlike other breeds crave human slaves, cultists and hybrids. Like to use swords, daggers, bows and javelins.

Chaos Beserker Cults

Channel chaos spirits into their body they unleash when enraged.  Its a condition more like a infection because berserks can be foolhardy, go on killing sprees and easily enraged.

Review Time and some projects


I got This awesome review thanks
http://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2018/07/osr-pdf-reviews-2-fast-locations-cave.html
Probably not my favorite work and least likely to be revised plus I think i forgot to number pages. I guess all my books are unfinished fan works in progress. Most I intend to revise with more content and if possible kickstart the better ones to pay for editing and artwork.

Most of the books take 1-2 days to layout. Editing for me is slower than writing the damn thing and not really pleasant and in some cases makes me not want to write. I have not returned to writing like I did before 4 days correcting some errors in Psychon. If anyone does foolishly feel the urge to edit for me the best way is to mark up a pdf. Page numbers doesn't work as with a big book some edits will throw out page and line numbers. I worked for three newspapers and a uni marketing dept making journals and we used pdfs.

Proper content pages fairly high priority for future revisions

I don't mind repeating some content in books as I might have several books open at the same time for different things at the table.

My Patreon Page is a few books ahead of what is on my downloads page here and several one sheet dungeon zines at the moment. Because of patrons at certain tiers im making a dungeon zine and a book a month at the moment. Still thinking of a suitably $5 reward as Ive had one patron request for content. Polls seem best way of sourcing what ppl want there. Space book and Redbrick dungeon book are available on Patreon now.

Will be doing a mutant manual with all my revised mutation tables and mutant class this month. Hopefully one on beastmen abhumans in future too if I get some more beastmen descriptions done (they are work take 3x longer than most blogs)

Id like to revise my treasure book, gothic book (needs gothic geomorphs which sounds like work) and my murder hobo book as I have lots of new murder hobo content and drew some lady murder hobos. Goatquest still a hopeful. Hoping on a zine of lairs too. A zine of villages might be nice. I wanna do a big map of post ruin Broken Hill too soon.

Im about 12 posts away from making something for general release again.

My other dungeon zones need more work so might start writing to focus on one of my planned dozen books on this, will probably do a poll. Should start some zines on my rule system i can compile together later.

I have goals of using LuLu but the hardcovers are in US inches and not sure If I want to rework book or need to? Nobody offered anything useful on this. I could just experiment. I struggle to afford hard copies which helps editing alot so will buy more Ink and get some test prints.

Will be paying for completion space book cover then will commission a new cover possibly for Xor or psychon. Meeting a artist I hope to copy his sketchbook and possibly colour in Sydney.

More interested in writing some cthulhu stuff but it is more research driven and slow now I have 7th ed and mostly buying and playing CoC now. I'm lucky to get dnd a few games a quarter.

Im away working for 2 weeks shortly so mostly writing in that time.

Current to do list of blogs:
Lizardmen breeds
Beserkers
Mythos museum fillers
Meat mages
Global villains for modern era

As always requests welcome.

Werebeasts!































One of the best things about the rare Melbourne 1980s RPG RUS was any player could be a were creature and it wasnt that bud but the christians didnt like it so much. It was sorta dnd meers Runequest d100 skills plus russian fairy taled and pretty awesome. Anyway it had were owls, falcons, horses, crows, badgers all kinds some wearing old fashioned pagan era armou. It also had fearure you couldnt have a pagan sorcerer and a christian priest in the same party. You either took the guy who made pacts with demons to call some goblins from hell or the guy who heals you and stops evil stuff like wizards.

Anyway big fun, So this month will do some mutations, beast wars, lycanthrope stuff and I will be In Sydney working. Rents and hostels have gone up so I have to drop a whole level of standard. Still might be last time i can afford to work for a while. Will see how Im going. Will try some of my new unamed setting then. Plus some more of my redbrick book with LOTFP.
