Why Not Break Through A Wall inThe Redbrick Dungeon?

I honestly thought I had d100ed this but i gave up looking. Was a d20 now here is the fully fat version. Bah! d20 is strictly amatuer to me now. Some dungeon beasties use these for food sources. The dungeon may seem to be a living spiteful being. My friend Herbie did dungeons with secret tunnels where monsters would get healed, change costumes and move about in secret then pretend to be new monsters. When we caught on we joined them. My wizard Sodomon the Magnificent started wearing a mask and paid people to spread rumours about the terrible deeds he couldn't be bothered doing and even convinced people they were victims of him when he never even met them. He was a odd wizard who couldn't wait to be a dungeon boss. He claimed all his powers came from tantric sodomey. Yes I'm a horrible player. He shoulda bee a LOTFP character. Actually It was Fighting Fantasy. Anyway as a player I would break dungeons y smashing walls rather than using doors and was banned from a campaign. This is dedicated to those poor DMs.

Redbrick dungeons are not just bricks they are supernatural conduits connected other planes that connect to hell. Thats where some of this awful stuff comes from.

Possibly Redbrick is the epitome of what some newschoolers hate about oldschool.

Monster Replacements for the EMO Beastiary

Looking at the SRD monsters i need to remove from all my books on some future edit. A pretty lazy fix job really. Will write a complete emo bestiary one day and put together all my monster blogs in same freaking format. My d12 variants and reskins could be colour coded for psychon also or just made creepier and bald for Xor. I think Mutant Epoch has the best monster format of any game and I like stormbringer where chaos monsters were half the time unique mutant hybrid things made to break taxonomy and lawful interpretations. I like wikipedia and faerie lore and mythology on monsters more than the monster manual mostly and in some cases BX is better. 
Now to just re edit the 2 million words+ of content I've created here to amend this. Help!

Eye Fiends - to be replaced by the various giant eyeball monsters ive posted about before. I think I have only used beholders once or twice in almost 40 years but I loved them as kid. Eyeball monsters are more pinball/psychadelic too so big improvement in my settings really.

carrion crawler
cavern worms - will also have a sting or a bite attack and more varient worm types because worms are under represented and more sizes are needed. i like the medieval confusion of snakes and worms.

displacer beast
Mutant panthers or tentacle panthers - cephalapod cat mutant hybrids. more creatures need to be displaced and should be a 2nd lv spell. Possibly d12  panther variants could generate a similar thing. Panthers were ascribed all kinds of powers including terrible farts or belches. Tentacles on any monster is coole with tentacles or snakes growing out of it. Tentacle goats - bam simple. tentacle lobster, tentacle hounds tentacle dwarfs pffft easy done.

githyanki, githzeraiAstral elves - reskin of elves using my psionics spell list, done next.

kuo-toaJust fismen wooptie doo of all the fishmen in dnd these just had some finicky gimmicks/feats. Even deep ones are pretty fair game now but the precious monk fishmen cultists with gummy shields are sacred wooooo.

mind flayerSquidmen with a few levels in psionicist bam next.

slaadFrog daemons, chaos frog demons. My demons of law and chaos will be more interesting
chaos demons should roll a new form each round. Shoggoths are pretty close. In my cosmology (devised by Nanny Binks) Primal chaos is mindless more like Azathoth while Khaos is corrupted chaos manipulated by lawful or sentient or moralistic beings. True chaos goatmen would regard evil and law and good as enemies for fighting entropy and mindlessness. Chaos doesnt need help from good to preserve the universe or evil to run it down faster. It just is.

umber hulkBug Brute - bug headed burrowing ogres or giants just needed a snappy name. d12 variations will give other powers and possibly tentacles or crab claws.

Reptile mutant cultists - just mutants who rolled on the reptilian mutation tables.

Cults In Space: Colony Cultist Peril

Working and gaming lots over next week so might not post daily.

So iv done various cultist colonies and cult clues for colonies with suspicious events in the past but this is about a single cultist in a colony and how they might use their position for trouble or start to spread their cult. They could be new arrivals and given posts while players are on the scene or well entrenched. Someone might become a cultist by finding texts, personal desperation or contact with entities. Some beings might contact via mental projections but will lure the recipient to stronger contact like by building a gate. Often such a person keeps these matters quiet and grows more insane. Some might be deluded into thinking they are helping the colony. Others see themselves as curing the cancer of humanity. One of these should liven up any colony.

Ben kept his this is best i can do from memory....

Zanno Mutant 5th tastes of Coriander
Mutant hermaphrodite who budded off clone children he ate as birth control. Also had spectacular huge genitalia. Had a good bugbear adult warrior and a gnome follower with trap and lock lore kept in backpack.

The eldren player kept notes on tastes of other characters flavours in case he ate them so some of this info came from him.

Psychon game in Sydney 2018

Using two rules one from a good looking geniarse on G+ i forgot the name of - if player goes to to toilet or goes to get a drink or snack so does the character. The other is any dice off the table is a fumble or worse possible result.

So the party met after being taken by a strange mist by the gods into a ruined black rocky landscape. This sort of thing happens a lot on Psychon. The adventurers introduced each other and climbed a peak to see the lay of the land. From a hill top they saw the jagged broken landscape with a sparse smattering of huge yellow trees and globs of cyan fungus. Some mountain peaks were covered in tangerine snow and the air was crisp and cold. In the distance they saw two built sites of interest. One was a half mile high octagonal metallic ting surrounded by flying things like flies and the other was a plateau of ruins with hundreds of stone pillars. They debated which do visit and after a split debate (my gnome gets a vote - no he doesnt - if he gets a vote i will summon two demons to vote with me). They agreed as both northish they would go forward and decide when closer.

On the way they saw alien statues of grey astronauts a vile hated breed of space men. After a few miles one of the flying things moved towards them. It was a red skinned horned bat winged fork tailed demon with a flaming sword. So they fired volleys of arrows and magic missiles at it and when it got close they dogpiled it beating it into a bile of cinnamon scented smoking gore and ichor. Several tasted it and they gathered three man days of food before the remains melted.

So they decided the ruins with pillars looked better. They saw some shambling green zombies and dispatched them easily and found signs of alien vivisection and implants reanimating them. The ruins had statues of bugbears and was a bronze age civilization. So poking about on the top they found some possible underworld entries but saw four yellow bugbears camping and eating a goat like creature, The eldren was the most charming and least freakish with only one mutation of a speech that everyone thinks sounds like them. He approached the wary bugbear hunters and held out his hand in the universal gesture of chuminess on psychon. After tasting each others hands (the eldren was peach flavour and the bugbears were mustard), they made friends and the bugbears invited them to dine on roast zorg and drink a tiny cup of its alien milk. Several were a bit woozy from the milk but everyone was impressed. The bugbears said they were wary of morlocks because of the yellow demon worshiping chaos cult ones they had met and wary of green humans. They explained there was a smart tribe in a underwater city and several groups who had run away from the city and were not as bad. Most of the undead were green made by aliens when they destroyed the green civilization. There was mention of the lawful bugbear tribe to the north who were not as compassionate and more rigid as their tribe. They mentioned the ruined grey city defended by undead and the greenman mausoleum that the greys made into a undead factory somehow. Also there were the hated evil greenman weregoats also made by greys.

Tht bugbears took the party to their village and several party members traded their useless old laser guns for magic bronze magic weapons and swapped potions for silver weapons. The mace handed mutant got silver coating on the spikes on his hand. The elden bought a idiot child bugbear to be a sacrifice. A mutant adopted a bugbear follower tempting them with his double his her enormous genitalia.

The next morning the were exploring the ruins and found a shaft more modern than the ruins under a temple. Entered into a 25 meter wide tunnel and followed it to a huge metal door on tracks. Then the thief disarmed a electric eye and a tripwire on the door then they opened the door. Inside was a rusty shed with a atomic robo tank which began to wake up. The Morlock patted it and soothed it told it to go back to standby and wait for a service. Then he took out the brain. Tried to remove the atomic power core and got it really wrong. Klaxon started and they all ran. When off the plateau they hid from the mushroom cloud that destroyed the ruins and turned a plateau into a crater. The eldren praised Azathoth while one of the mutants sparkled and giggled from the rads. Most were fine but the thief and a bugbear followers started losing hair. The eldren recommend they not eat solid food for a few days just stick to blood.

So they headed north where there were some other ruins of a ancient lawful bugbear tribe. they approached the ziggurat avoided some weregoats. They did kill a lone old weregoat who didn't realise the party had lots of silver and magic weapons. They found an old apartment inhabited covered in graffiti and surrounded by trash. The thief started scrawling some ash something about goats and a resident yelled abuse calling them goat lovers. There was a exchange of abuse but they calmed down and met a gang of teen yellow gubgears in gang leathers with mohawks called the silver shanks. They heard of the gang fueds with weregoats and offered to help. The party tried to be cool but couldnt fool the teens. So they entered the ruined building awaiting the full moon and the weregoats.

One of the mutant used his nanoslap patch anti virus meds and cured a teen who was dying of weregoat bite. Goblinoids and demihumans just die from the bite while humans (or mutant humans) will go goat first full moon. After several years they might change when angry and more before they would get control of the condition so the party decided going goat was not a plan. The hermaphrodite slept with some teens in secret while the rest drank terribly bunk brew beer (garbage with mould on top) and others worked their way to charm the gang. Most developed some friendships and one who had cut off his hand where a goat bit him had a mace prosthetic and got to mace fist the mutant adventurers mace hand.

The teens used to use silver slug slings but ran out as the crafty weregoats taunted them and gathered the slugs so the party though they should track the goats home. At night the howls and bleats of goats were heard and the nasty creatures gathered to start abuse. The eldren taunted them in and the doors were opened and goats charged in. The first died from a mace fist bump from two sided crushing his head. More goats died and finally they retreated. The party gave chase for 40 minutes and came to the goat cave. While the goats lined up with the she goats in the cave, the eldren sneaked behind and put their kids in a sack and silver stash in his purse. A quick fight and the were goats were dead but two they took captive. Back at the bugbear apartment they had a party. They learned that when the teens matured they became lawful and rejoined joined the lawful tribe. The eldren summoned a seaweed demon with the weregoat sacrifices which was quite loyal and able to stay with him.

Leaving their bugbear teens they went to the ruins the next day and found filthy dwarf greys digging rubble they waited and watched and one of the mutants was sure there was a space craft under the rubble. The party beat them up and the eldren charmed one. Inside they found three crionic pods with service replicants they awoke. The eldren who could speak ancient made them his slaves. They debated weather to set off a nuke but the morlock wanted the cockpit electronics and their was a argument. They did both and managed to radio some space god orbital obsessed with genetic purity and conned a team to come and help them. One of the mutants who hated ancient talk wandered off and watched the ship land and hid. He saw two armoured troopers with lasers step out. When they were out of sight he sneaked into the shuttle.

The las troopers threatened the party and the team attacked. The scorpion tained mutant grapples ones gun and the others pounded them while lasers exploded rocks (5d5 lasers not the puny 2d6 ones they used to own). The scorpion tailed guy moved his victim into the path of the other guys laser and the poor guy exploded in a steamy gore heap. Then they beat the standing one and got their lasers.

In the shuttle the mutant got into a argument and got shot by a slug pistol and started wrestling in the cabin. Other party members arrived and dragged out a nurse replicant and the co pilot. The beat up the pilot and the sneaky mutant began button mashing and argued with the morlock. The orbital tried a remote take over and the morlock failed to stop it so they bailed out and the shuttle flew away. On the wrecked shuttle they got threats from a space god. They saw a the colossal armoured space titan descend and raise his analyser rod and the party scattered into seperate caves or ran. The eldren with his new slaves and prisoners was happy he was pure enough to avoid cleansing but the thief followed him spoiling this.  The space god started atomizing the hill with a cave to get at a mutant and the sneakiest mutant with his invisible flesh and glowing heart and brain flaring abused the space god in the name of his space god. The space god unsure of his jurisdiction atomizing his allies worshiper zoomed into space.

The party begrudgingly reassembled. The eldren sacrificed all the spare victims, his charmed alien, the replicants and his idiot boy bugbear and got a smoke demon impervious to non magic weapons. They debated attacking the greenman mausoleum or the alien city. but that is another tale...

Was a bit of player vs player as i expected but was good day with six players.
After there was a reclaim the streets doof i wandered about for a while better than any paid rave id been to in over ten years. Possibly might get a wednesday game or talisman in then a doodle drawing game on the ANZAC wed holiday here we celebrate Australia spending more on the memorials of WW1 than any other nation on earth and how that money was taken from the arts and cost hundreds of culture jobs for nationalism yay! Also we shit on NZ (the NZ in ANZAC) and break our treaties with them and don't mention them much.

Katharmir: Rolling up a hex for Psychon Game

So testing my books is pretty handy and shows some flaws. Having multiple ways of generating similar info has some advantages for variety and you don't have to roll every table. Stop when you think you have enough weird stuff. Today's game is a one off with fairly aggressive club players including some player vs player types I might have to act on. Possibly if they are bored enough to start purging heretics I might roll on my things fall out of the sky table. One thing happened rolling was to see possibly some tables need to be in different chapters. Also once I found a tech level table then couldnt find it again in my own book. So will do a new one in settlement table. So This hex is full of strange stuff to investigate and plenty of conflicts for players to get involved with and no clear solutions to solve them.

I also wrote a simple character gen system to simplify my emo rules and I quite liked it and might post soon. I just want character gen to be fast. possibly followers and mutants will be the slowest thing. Have stripped away lots of choices and advancement benefits so a litehack of my EMO rules might be a thing soon at least for con games and one offs.

Basic Natural Conditions

Black rocky plains with broken mountains and rubble heaps
Cold with snowstorms and tangerine snow that tastes like pepper
Ocean of emerald fresh water that tastes a bit fishy

There is a underwater city of green men whos exiles have coastal villages
-the city can be raised or lowered but are currently xenophobes
Their is a gargantuan crab where greys are working on rewiring it's brain to use as a war machine

There is a tribe of yellow bugbears who once had a civilization split into two tribes
- the lawful and good tribes who mostly live around their ruined monuments
The Green Men who are mostly good in two tribes and worship Maaria's good aspect
-the advanced city dwellers who follow their xenophobe AI god and fear strangers
-the exiled coastal dwellers who have little tech but comprehend it
The Green Were Goats worship the evil version of Maaria and eat humans
Chaotic Yellow Morlocks who worship demons and elementals by the data stacks
Grey aliens in two tribes and are utterly evils

Murder Hobos & The Power Of Friendship

So had a quick game of Lamentations/ BX mash up at game shop. Was intended for noobs but several bailed and two of my fave vet players came plus Katie. She has started gaming but has had a interest in sword fighting and listened to me argue with story gamers for years at mid week geek. She is also mostly blind and very sharp. So I rolled up a quick dungeon using my Redbrick draft. I also had idea for my sentient dungeons to have abilities they can call on based on their levels per day but more on that later.

So I rolled Up This
-humanoid Breeders Dungeon (decided on kobold as 1st Lv)
-Serpent man wizard boss named Seestak LE the kobolds self titled god
-Ragon the cleric with his goatmen guards trying to resurrect a ancient evil said to be hidden in the cave plus several zombies (using my 1st Lv problematic zombie spell)
-Dungeon Spirit will use ESP to make voices of peoples loved ones

-Rumours that local area was dependant on dungeon
-The entry had statues of two kobold crowned warriors before a archway
-Carved from black basalt and smelled of rotten food
-Was crawling in bugs and vermin
-intersections lit by dim green magic light

The Players Rolled up characters
-Jimmy the Thief sent by guild to stop chep kobold labour destroying economy and guild skill base from kobold slave trade with his pet kobold torchbearer slave and Lifto the baggage handler whos speciaty is loot hauling and running away
-Sleazy Nick the Priest of Baccus sent to recover a recipe for a male potency formula so the high priest could perform functions at the cult woodland drunken orgies who has a kobold torch bearer
-Fred the warrior a mercenary who woke up one day with tatoo of the dungeon door on his chest whos charisma is 8 and has never had a true friend

Party met in pub of town where everyone using kobold slaves for dirty jobs. The local industry was booming from kobold slave trade and the kobold breeding dungeon was well known and had a sign pointing to it. The shop sold kobold traps and manacles and other kobold slave items. The peasants no longer felt on the bottom and were getting rich and lazy at kobold expense. Of late kobold trappers had disappeared.

The party met in the pub and the priest was pleased to see the pub offered him discounts and had statuette of his god with a huge erection. They set off to the dungeon and spied a single kobold fishing. Jimmy with his kobold offered it food and were friendly and the kobold Bing explained the evil priest and goatmen had taken part of the dungeon. Talked about their god Seestak and said they should talk to him and plan a meeting. Two days drinking and pick pocketing later and they met Seestak who was a bald wizard with a goatee and green eyeliner and a slight lisp. The made a deal ans Seestak gave them armbands and offered gold to kill the goatmen and priest. They were told head left to find the priest factions lair. Then kill them and send Bing to the tell Seestak when the job done. Seestak referred to people as humans as if not to include himself. The kobolds were impressed by Fred the fighters tattoo but their master was not.

So into the dungeon and past a few kobold guards. Found a garbage room and Jimmy went exploring silently with two kobolds but a carrion crawler surprised him and a kobold paralyzing them. Priest and warrior rushed and killed it with torch bearer kobolds. Found lots of trash and a crawler hole with two corpses in it of kobolds. One was a paralysed kobold warrior and other body tore in half when pulled out and had grubs in it's mouth. Waited for paralysed peers to be able to move and moved on. Thief grabbed the crawlers head and the rescued kobold had worm eggs removed and was grateful and went home to tell of parties good deeds.

Saw kobold guard posts and found dimly lit cavern of the evil cult. Thief sneaked up and found zombie guards, obviously murder hobos and the weasel faced one was from his guild who was sent on a nameless mission just a bit before him. He shanked one and ran. The zombies lumbered slowly after him and the party fired missiles and the priest tried to turn them. Zombies were allowed to close and the warrior finished them with thief who his in a wall depression as zombies passed him.

All this was pretty quiet and they found a temple and some boxes and barrels and a chest. Barrel of paint another of flower plus box of stale bread (kobolds ate). Locked chest had a iron pot with 20lb or fresh mortar. Kobolds tasted the paint noting the high lead content and the mortar. The top of the mortar should have scabbed over and they spread some on wall and watched it dry. It was a magic mortar pot possibly worth a thousand gold. Found white painted altar repurposed from kobold mother god to the Seestak then the new chaos underworld god. A smashed clay statue kobolds said was of Seestak was on floor but they didn't pay attention. Ahead was curtained tunnel where the evil priest and goatmen. They realized by questioning the kobold that there was only 2 goatmen but they were "twice as big as kobolds".

Thief went ahead and saw priest in bed and two black goatmen playing dice. He went up to priest and stabbed him in the chainmail and woke him up with a yell. Goatmen got up and the fighter and cleric charged in. The cleric had blessed himself and protected the fighter in plate with protection from evil. The goatmen went down and the theif fled the angry priest who cast hold person on the party. A kobold and th thief were paralysed. The priest whaked the paralysed thief in the head then was brought down in a hail of blows. The kobolds were quite handy. Priest saved the priest with  a healing spell and they rested 12 hours till morning. Kobolds told how Seestak had saved kobolds from slavery by walking among the men and betraying them with a kobold ambush outside town.

Found gold and the priest holy book on betrayal, murder, torture and deceit and his orders to awaken an ancient evil, enthrall the kobolds and take over the region. Priest of Baccus tried to convert the surviving goatman as he had froliced in the woods with some good ones once but it was vile so he dashed out its brains. The priest was ungagged and questioned and demanded party serve him. The party told him they won and he should serve them. He promised to be good and they looked in his unholy book to see his supplication word for word from the chapter on telling vile lies. So they killed him. Convinced the local kobold they were better friends and Freds tats were a sign. The bacchanalian priest gave the kobold some proper wine not the piss kobolds drank and promised all the wine they wanted and freedom. Impressed by the human kindness the kobold admitted their god could shape shift into a snake man and would eat kobold eggs and had seen him swallow a human baby. The kobolds had found him asleep and covered in dust in the sealed library chamber. So they realized the snake was the ancient sleeping evil the cult was seeking.

They sent in kobolds ahead to convince others bu they didn't do so well. The kobold they had saved earlier did do some good. They met as planned their kobolds in a guard junction and the kobolds were tolerant of the helpful humans but had orders not to let them pass. Their allied kobolds attacked first the party joined in and subdued most of them. Except the one a fighter cut in half while holding a fire bomb with a lit fuse that was beyond first aid.

They went to the hatchery and convinced the kobold matriarch to aid them and said they would not eat kobold eggs. She led them to the warrior barracks and they planned to call out the wizard snakke from the library. They called him and he came out looking human as before and the party and 8 kobolds shot him peppering the surprised wizard lizard who resumed his true form on death.

So the party stayed on. The priest brought in the saucy bachinalean kobolds of his cult, taught them wine making and the ways of drunkenness. The thief made a deal with the guild to rent kobold labourers which made their labour not so cheap and kept the class and economic order intact. Fred the fighter was a bit scary to the kobolds (CHA8) but had the tattoos of liberator so they accepted him. Everybody lived happily ever after.

Real murder hobos might have turned on the kobolds too but they made a good income. In my games players often become dungeon bosses. Apparently this is abnormal.
