Stone Age Gaming..
My cave folk setting post was popular with lots of comments. Like most Ive had in many months. Nice to know Im not crazily yelling into the void blogging. Ill be writing adventure 3 folds for this soon.
Will do some more soon. d100 prehistoric caves, d100 lost valleys, tribe generator, encounter tables, and some more. Ive done stuff before which qualify too, so will put all relevant posts into links together soon
Here are some other cave genre games. I might get more into my project before I read them all but here:
Wolfpacks and winter snow
looks good (her other stuff is among best in gaming)
patricks review and link to game
I don't get worries about wendigo when gaming and comics full of content touching on genuine religious beliefs all the time. But im happy for a popular version to exist while true believers ideas are obscure to us. The versions we read in books often very far removed from original cultures. Bunyips and many more things have same issues.
Also mentioned. Not seen it but it looks other end of spectrum gritty realism.
Gurps Ice Age
A bit thin but good, wanted me to see more
Also worrying about real history too much will see your work dated
Gurps Dinosaurs (added after comments)
covers lots of the same content as ice age like characters and is a good read. Lots of ways to put cave folk into other settings especially pulp and time travel. Has mammals and Pleistocene animals too.
CavemasterGood ideas, interesting take on dnd races as cave folk types, lots of creatures. Ive read a bit of it.
Sticks and Stones
Savage worlds setting. Not read it but 99c i will
One common debate is realism vs fantasy. My setting is actually post apocalypse not just stone age. So many previous civilisations, wizards, occasional undead dinosaur mutants, dwarves with guns and other stuff. I expect to be more gonzo than all the above games.
Interesting side note while looking for art. Most art of cave folk they look white. White ppl appeared 6-12000 years ago so you'd think there was more variety.
