Into The Labyrinth

If you are here, it's late. I'm a Gygaxian freak, so any step can be the last one.
As you may discover, if you'll ever have the patience to follow this blog, I'm not an old school elitist, though. I mix and match, trying to get the best from the two schools.
But this is actually a love letter to the playstyle that fits my DMing needings.

In other words, this will be, in other words, a B/X - Labyrinth Lord dark/horror fanclub.


We'll cover a lot of terrain here: I'll tell you about my "Chronicles of Amherth" campaign (heya heya oh!), I'll present my homebrew classes and I'll even plan some future work with you.

This is a blog about dark fantasy and grim, deadly tales where desperate heroes hope to fulfill their atrocious destiny.

In the meanwhile, I leave you with a concept: life is a dungeon. That's the idea behind all of my adventures and creations. Even if most of our favorite game is about alignments, evil and good, I like the grey area where people take weird decisions in crucial moments of their relatively short lifespans. This is George Martin's, more or less.


So, let us fall into the labyrinth, where dangerous rooms await, horrible monsters lurk and mysterious secrets lie where nobody dare to look.

And remember: it can't rain all the time. But it can snow. Or worst.

Amherth Diaries, Session I: Masquerade

First session, first recap. For letting you get what's happening avoiding spoilers, I'll just post step by step events, so that you may always catch up.
Good luck.

- The usual party of Summer's End takes place at the Blueberry / Garrett estate. Dancning, Mask contest with the "Season" theme, and more group play will keep on going until dawn, while the Guild of Entertainers will take care of its hosts. In any possible manner.
It's just a matter of time: intrigue and chit-chat takes the toll, masked behind the "party mood". No one is calm and quiet. The Elven Greystone sisters seem already on the point to leave. The other nobles are drunk or worst. There are merchants and sailors invited as well, just to show that the Entertainers embrace them all. Cirice ends up hating' him. She's not A woman. She's THE woman and the winner (again) of the mask contest: all flowers, colored mask... Summer in its full beauty,

Amherth Diaries, Introduction: "Guild Wars"

This is not a videogame spin off, fellow delvers.
The "Amherth" diaries series will be centered on... guess? My "Chronicles of Amherth" campaign!
For those who don't know and will be soon devoured by an hungry undead monkey, Amherth is a dark fantasy setting written with core Labyrinth Lord in mind.



Imagine a post-apocalyptic feel (an apocalypse is what everybody needs to chill out a bit), very grim present with open ended tales. We'll focus on Amalor, which is just a portion of the immersive world. You can find lots of analogies with the real world: the cruel and powerful Xannen Empire which resembles an ancient-roman / mongolian mixed feel with gladiators over three headed dogs lashing slaves... the almighty Kingdom of Tyr, whith castles and knights... the Corrland with a scottish/irish oppression twist. You have everything you need around the vast regions of Amalor...

That's why I've chosen to start somewhere else.

We are in Tradeport, what we ma…
