Misspent Youth by Robert Bohl Review

This episode contains a review of Misspent Youth by Robert Bohl. It also contains the details of a giveaway where you can get a free copy of both Misspent Youth and its only (current) supplement Sell Out With Me. Each misspent youth session is a story in 7 acts where a group of youthful offenders resist the machinations of an Authority. Its punk, its rules light, and its a blast.

Three reviews on Thursday.

I had a few hours to kill tonight and decided to get a few product reviews out there. When it comes to the sales platforms used by most RPGs (Itch, DTRPG, etc.,) reviews really help get their products seen, and so few buyers ever think to leave them. I decided to remedy this. Each review was posted on Itch.io, which is problematic since I don’t know for sure that Itch has fully implemented reviews on their platform.

Ep 1, Getting your Campaign off the ground, OSR Star Trek, and Lost Colony worlds.

Nothing too new here I just re-edited the three short podcasts I’ve made into a single long-format podcast with segments. This podcast goes into depth on getting your game up and running inspired by “Odyssey: The Complete Guide to Campaign Prep”, a discussion of the two main OSR systems for running Star Trek, and some plot hooks for space sci-fi games involving colony ships. Next month I’ll be tackling the Adventurer Conqueror King Roleplaying Game, as well as a Setting Idea I have for it.

[Fate][Review] Shardlands

Shardlands: Muskets, Blades, Words of Power! by Judith and Christian Vogt Self Published Setting for Fate Core I tend to think of myself as primarily a Basic/eXpert Dungeons and Dragons (1981) player and game master. Thinking of Elf as a class, descending armor class, and creating a rags to riches story at the table gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Like a warm blanket on a cold morning, these utterly fallacious thoughts keep me cozy in my descending years.

Ep:000 Hello World.

So this is my pre-inagural episode. I initially chose to go with the name “OSR in SpaAacE” and was going to focus on Science Fiction role-playing games focused on the Old School Renaissance. I have since decided to do longer monthly episodes covering a variety of OSR content. I’m posting these three Podcasts here as a “how it was” kinda thing, but I’ll be re-editing these into a first episode for the new show.

BookLog 2010.04.14 — Bonk by Mary Roach — Hackmaster Basic from Kenzer and Co — Pathfinder by Paizo

I’ve picked up a pile of books lately, but haven’t had much in the way of time to read them. I’m in the middle of writing a module for Labyrinth Lord, I’ve been trying to go to the gym (and playing hookie as I write this), and I’m plotting a special getaway next week with someone, all of which eats time. I’m going to continue reading Bonk by Mary Roach I think.
