Three Neat Things Thursday and Devildog Slaughterfist

-So over at Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque, Jack put together a d100 table of interesting rituals to use in Carcosa, your Cosmic Odyssey reskin, Call of Cthulhu, or anyplace else you need the villains driven to obscure behavior by nefarious motives. His Oulipian constraint was to avoid all the ritual cliches.

You must fashion a mask from the combined skins of a mammal, an amphibian, and a bird. The mask will be worn only during the first part of the ritual; after this the mask must be consumed by the sorcerer before the ritual can continue.

-Bryan M. automated my d100 war dogs table--making the shopping part of your game that much faster.

-That RPG book I wrote won best RPG supplement of the last 10 years over at UK Role Players, beating out some heavy competition.

And just because I scanned it for later reference and why not, here's Devildog Slaughterfist, level 1 thief...

Last thursday's diary entry reads...

Dear Diary: Went to Rappan Atthuk today with one hit point, left with one hit point, 250 gp, a magic arrow, a serrated gnoll sword and one leg.

We'll see if we can make it another day....

Now if you'll excuse me I have to go find some graph paper...

  1. Since no one else has bothered to say so, I like your character sheet as a work of art. I've made it my desktop. (And I like the character's name, as well. A name like that would fit in with Alistair Rennie's MetaWarriors fiction, among other's I'm sure. -- if you're not familiar, you can check out one of his short stories at
