Explosive Runes – 12 Jun 2009

I’ve had a lot on my plate the past couple of weeks, and posting has been slow. My apologies.

I can see this nifty little spell coming in quite handy. Makes me wonder if I should consider dabbling in the arcane arts, myself. It’s like a “magic missile of STFU.!”

Rituals for Swords & Wizardy
Robert Conley proposes an alternative spell casting system that might address some of the things I’ve always notliked about the Vancian fire-and-forget system.

I’ve been considering using ritual casting as a way for Swords & Wizardry White Box spellcasters to reach spells that the 10th-level limit of WB precludes. My son has a few ideas, and we’re going to hash it out in the near future.

Fast Packs
Dungeons and Digressions talks about B4: The Lost City’s starting equipment system and includes a scan from the module. That’s great, because though I was familiar with it I don’t think I’d ever actually seen it before.

Also on the topic: Beyond the Black Gate’s Standard Starting Equipment Package and my own take on starting equipment called, um Starting Equipment.

Retrospective: The Lost City
Speaking of The Lost City, Grognardia looks back at the module. I’ve never even looked at it. It was on my list of things to get in PDF, but we all know how that story ended.
