We live in Berlin these days, but my wife and I returned to our previous haunts in Norwich, England, recently to visit friends and family, and to sort through some left-over stuff of ours that we had abandoned in our hasty exodus last year. It’s a bit like a lootbox of travelling down memory lane. In this case we found a bushel of “etchings.” You see, many years ago, at one of the regular LARPs we used to attend, we went around and peddled smut: “quality” etchings of drow matriarchs in compromising and humiliating situations.
Miscellaneous fantasy scene I love reading through random tables for inspiration, as well as having tables to hand when I GM. As long as the content is properly interesting and relevant, and goes beyond 1d6 rats (look, why aren’t they 1d6 rats that escaped from a mad professor’s lab and have all sorts of needles, gears and cogs stuck in them, plus their brains are exposed under tiny glass bowls?
A lot of my game writing features random tables, and tables are a staple of many OSR products too. As part of my efforts to create a better medium for roleplaying resources, I’m writing several components to help elevate content on the web. It’s easy enough to sling a PDF’s content online, but most of the time we forget that the web can offer us additional functionality, which is outside the purview of the printed page or even PDFs.
Hi, I’m Mottokrosh Or, more officially, Frank Reding. I made that nickname up on the spot for a video game many, many years ago, and it stuck. Whenever I need to provide a username to register for an account, I use “Mottokrosh” - it’s always available, unless I already signed up before, and forgot about it. By day, I’m a frontend developer, by night, I play, write, design, or code apps for RPGs.
