About the games:

The Toxic Wood (32 page zine)

The Toxic Wood is a deadly wilderness adventure for Old School Essentials

This hexcrawl adventure focuses on game-able content and being easy to use at the table. It is graphic and art heavy and utilizes a lot of random tables to make it easier for GMs to run with minimal prep.

“You have been hired by a secretive council of wizards, who refuse to meet in person with you, to rescue the survivors of Mugwort - a town which was thought to have been destroyed and lies deep within The Toxic Wood. The Wood is corrosive and the air is not safe to breath there, so the wizards have given you a magical orb which will create a safe dome of air around you. The orb must be fed with fuel containing life force to continue operating properly. They have also gifted each of you a less effective necklace which will create a temporary small bubble of clean air around your head as an emergency measure. The Wood became noxious a couple of years ago after a dragon known as Ion moved in. You will have to navigate to Mugwort without Ion noticing if you are to conduct a successful evacuation.”

Willow (zine - 32 pages)

Willow is a grim backwater micro setting made for swords and wizardry rule system, but can easily be used with other old-school systems or even 5E.

Willow is a town that can be dropped into your campaign setting. Focused on game-able content and being easy to use at the table, It is graphic and art heavy. Structured as a mini hexcrawl, players will have to work together to investigate a mystery to move on from a damp backwater town to bigger, brighter places.

The Setting

Deep in a vast wood, a town called Willow sits beside the Lake of Tears. The lake is framed by weeping willow trees, their vines pouring into the lake’s dark green shores. Willow is not what one would call an upbeat town. The rains here are relentless and the grey skies loom low like a giant cage. Travelers do not linger here long; one night in the Blue Brew Inn is enough to make most jump on the ferry and move on. But recently the ferries have stopped running as something terrible has taken up residence on the river. Meanwhile, the town folk will not talk about the noises echoing up from the staircase that descends below the lake, nor the broken stone circle on the hill at the edge of town. The town’s leader, a witch named Morose Morgan, is a recluse and refuses to leave her island.


Haunted Hamlet and other hexes (zine - 32 pages)

The Haunted Hamlet and other hexes details four unique modular locations for your game.

Made for old school essentials, but can easily be used with other old-school systems or even 5E.

The four locations detailed in the zine focus on gameable content and being easy to use at the table. The locations are not connected to one another and can be sprinkled onto your campaign map however you like, or run as one shots. The PDF is graphic and art heavy and utilizes random tables and other tools to make it easier for GMs to run in a pinch.


LL - your stuff is the best! You can always count on me as a backer!

I totally forgot you were also here!

Cool, now I can tell you how much I liked Woodfall. I’ve run a couple of one shots, but I’m thinking of starting a longer campaign at some point.

Oh I am really glad you liked Woodfall, and that you ran some sessions with it

I always like to hear how players interacted with the setting, or what they decided to get up to if you have any details. It’s been interesting to hear the variety over the years

I want to make a remastered/greatly expanded version as a box set with maps and players zines and so on in future but probably wont be for a couple years because I have other projects first and don’t want to make the first edition ‘obsolete’ too quickly. It was the first thing I made and there was so much I did not have the space or time to include, I also really want to re-do all the art as I have learned a lot since then. I was also thinking of making some tools or re-structuring things so the density of content in the town is easier to run - I have always found it more hectic/high mental load as a GM to run towns and urban areas and think it would be interesting to try and approach that from a new angle.

Let me know if you have any other feedback about it too, as I have been collecting it over the years in a document to refer to when I am making the remastered version

thanks so much wormgazer

thanks again, good to hear from you
have you been getting any good gaming in lately, working on any new projects or any new zines or books been standing out to you?

I’m doing well, thank you! I’m still running a bi-weekly game but haven’t had time for much else as my wife is pregnant - due here in a week or so!

As far as projects I’m looking forward to, looking at my Kickstarter backs I’m excited for the new editions of Shadowdark and Yoon-Suin, and the Tomb of the Dundel Chief by Heidi Gygax


Congratulations on becoming a dad! thats exciting, wish you guys the best

Did not see tomb of dundel will have to check that out. Yes the yoon-suin new edition looks great, that books a big inspiration for my new project in terms of the generative/procedural setting style
