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.

Dark Classes I: The Shaman

Welcome to the first article of the "Dark Classes" series! This blog is currently set in the Amherth investigation oriented campaign I'm running, which uses a mix of LL and BFRPG. 
My aim is to focus on B/X-ish material and most of my focus will be on LL Classic.  Here I present "The Shaman", a class I came up with thanks to the story of my beloved girlfriend, which eventually brought us to Cirice Harrow, one of the characters playing the aforementioned campaign. You can check out a general introduction here. Concept The Shaman has born to recreate the idea of a gifted "witch". There is a single Shaman for any given era. In our case, Shamans see light in the Tradeport's Harrow Faimily, a noble house concerning about alchemy.  Shamans are gifted girls (no man-Shamans) who start dreaming and feeling elemental spirits, nature essences talking to them. They do not study to become one, they just try to focus on their inner experiences and try not to los…

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,
