New Module at NTRPG Con 2018

"Even in the far gulfs of space, the struggle of Law against Chaos, Good versus Evil is eternal. But wherever evil is not extinguished, it will revive to exact vengeance on those who would keep it at bay..." —Neb Lo, Last of the Holy Order of Knights Galacticus 

This adventure is more than just an old-school, fun-house dungeon. (Although it is definitely that!) Steve Robertson has captured the raw essence of golden age pulp science fantasy and funneled it into an outlandish adventure rife with wonderment and strangeness. On first read I knew this scenario was a perfect fit for my ongoing Planet Eris campaign. 

The Castle that Fell From the Sky was originally created as a single session tournament-style event for a gaming convention (NTRPG Con 2015, to be precise). The revisions in this edition are geared toward expanded campaign play, where multiple sessions will afford players a chance to experience more, and ultimately (if they are skillful and tenacious) the completion of the scenario.

The maps have been redrawn, the text reformatted (in some cases additional detail is given), and standard fantasy wargame statistics are now provided throughout. Careful effort has been made, however, to cleave as nearly as possible to the spirit, substance, and language of the original.

A limited run of this module is available for sale at NTRPG Con in Irving, TX from Wed. June 6 to Sun Jun 10, 2018.


General (online) release of this module is planned for October 31, 2018.

FREE Module KK2 from NTRPG CON 2017

That's me and Steve Robertson at the Knights-n-Knaves Alehouse social at NTRPG CON last week. (Steve is the proprietor of VANQUISHING LEVIATHAN LLC.) We're running a scenario we put together called The Mystic Cup of Gygax (or Alucard's Revenge!). At this point we still thought we could pull off a TPK, but alas, no!

(FYI: click on the pictures to embiggen them.)

This session was a riot! 2 DMs, 21 players, and 4 cases of homebrew beer-- how could this possibly not rock?! (There are already a few reviews of the event out there on the forums. Seek them out here, here, and elsewhere, if you're interested.)

The game featured possessed characters killing each other, characters killing the DMs, a secretly evil character leading the party to their doom, and finally the ultimate betrayal and an appearance by Demogorgon to tie up the loose ends. Somehow the whole gaggle of ne'er-do-wells survived what should have been an easy TPK!
