d100 Stuff hidden in a Humanoids bed

Realized my mutation tables idea has been totally re written 3 times over 4 years.

Am writing 80s white dwarf style for no  particular rule set more. Had a idea for mutations as a character class (mutations have levels like spells). So a new bug in mutation writing but funny to have a bash at. Have several long term unpublished posts.

Have been asked to run 20s cthulhu and am running ww1 cthulhu for Sydcon. Missing DnD. Might continue old horror team of 14th lv with two players or do new setting or rest of setting. Other possibility was a BRP fantasy game based on a long running game I ran about 1990. DnD is appealing because i miss it and it has own kind of fun. BRP good for grit and horror and phew only impaled my leg not my head kind of play. More Homeric violence. DnD part of the fun is quantitative growth and obvious superiority to lower levels.

As Im reading my 1990s era Pendragon horde (only need two more books and i ought have wales book as im 1/4 Welsh. Thinking simplified BRP with d20 had a lot of promise for other less gritty games. d20 BRP might be good for the less matchs crunchy kids. Tables i made up for BRP really speed play. Maybe d20 will speed up play. I like the personality trait system and characters are naughty and might not do what player wants. Have interesting ideas for religion and these passions and traits. Might run one off Pendragon on a holiday game.

Anyway here is a dungeon decor table because my parties search monsters mattresses till they get worms or ticks. When you get higher level you get your servants to look and higher still you let your torchbearers and poleboys take what they want.

  1. That is an extensive list , good Sir...
    ... we will have to come back and write that down ....
    (Random determination charts are the "Best"... for helping piece together a game ... or to further "flesh-out" an existing game....
    ... and we see that you are a fan of the original (Chaosium) Call of Cthulhu.... Cool...
