Digging through my Drive

Thanks Dan for posting “Games in my Folders”, of your eight I only knew about The Lorian Gendarme Guidebook and the One Hundred Wilderness Hexes. I also tend to find great content only to immediately forget about it, so I took your post as inspiration to peruse my Google Drive for great stuff buried in the sands of time. Here are my 5:

Tricks, Empty Rooms, & Basic Trap Design By Courtney C. Campbell

Maybe it is cheating to pick something by Courtney Campbell, but I found this pdf online a while back and then didn’t look at it for a year or so only to recently rediscover it by accident. It is one of my main resources now when I am planning dungeons or other adventure sites. (link)

MONSTER MENU-ALL 2 by Skerples

I haven’t actually brought this to my table yet, but I really love it and haven’t heard anyone talk about it in a while. A list of all the monsters in Veins of the Earth and their various edible parts and potential effects that might come from eating those parts. It is even laid out by David Shugars and has it’s own art. (link)

Various Blank Resource Sheets by Richard LeBlanc

I really like all of Richard’s NewBigDragon stuff. His d30 companions are always by my side when I run games. I also find his Creature Compendium to be full of great monsters that are actually table-ready and yet different enough from the monster manual to make them fun. I forgot he had all these free resources for a while and was using crappy versions that I had cobbled together. Then I rediscovered a bunch of them in my drive and they make my life a bit easier.

Chromatic Soup 1 & 2

These collaborations game out of some peak moments of G+ OSR brainstorming and crowd-sourcing. I leaned pretty heavily on Chromatic Soup 1 for one of my campaigns but had mostly forgotten about them until recently when I tried to figure out why I had all these references to “Bobcatmen” in one of my onepage adventures. Since Evlyn M has pulled down her Lulu account I will link my PDFs here. If anyone knows of an official source I will edit this to reflect: Chromatic Soup Chromatic Soup 02

Various art, specifically the d6 Crabmen by Steven De Waele

These images haven’t come to my table per se, but I smile each time I scroll past them in my Drive. They are so filled with character and inspiration, and they make me want to run Yoon-Suin again. Steven’s stuff is great. Follow him on Twitter Instagram or on Tumblr
