Fight On! #12 Released

I’m very happy to have an article in this one, ‘Pigdivot!’ with map & concept courtesy of Greengoat.  It’s just a little village you can plop into your campaign, either as a base of operations for the PCs or as a stop on the way somewhere else.  Lots of adventure hooks are included, along with colorful characters.

I encourage all four readers of this blog to pick up a copy.  Here are details of the entire issue:

“The City of the Ancients”

Available in download widget (right column).  From Fight On! #10 and part of that magazine’s ongoing ‘The Darkness Beneath’ megadungeon.  It’s a little slice of CARCOSA transported to a more typical D&D world – a ruined hi-tech city with Irrationalists at one end, Space Aliens at the other, and bizarre horrors in between.  PCs can pick sides or just pilfer goodies from the shadows.  Robots, a hovertank, mutations, the ass-end of a Shub Spawn, a Space Alien lotus den, and much more.  Probably works with Encounter Critical, Mutant Future, and similar systems.

This download does not include the cool art from the magazine: cools monsters, bad guys & city map by Lester B. Portly, dungeon map by Alex Schroeder, and more art by Jennifer Weigel.

Completely unplaytested…!

‘Ten Dooms of the Icy Wastes’

Available in the download widget (right column).  Originally published in Fight On! #9.  10 encounters suitable for the Icy Wastes of CARCOSA, or any similarly-themed science-fantasy campaign:

  1. Fungoid Abomination of the Realms of Frost (rampaging Spawn of Shub)
  2. Field of Icy Bones (Tundra Wyrm ambush)
  3. Lair of the Frozen Pudding (Black Pudding surprise)
  4. The Fate of the Witch (damsel-not-exactly-in-distress)
  5. The Crippled Machine (aeons-old robot carries out murderous programming)
  6. The Lost Fane (I’thaquan cult location)
  7. The Fallen Saucer (Space Alien vs. Spawn of Shub Mexican stand-off)
  8. Ice Garden of the Old One (wanna meet I’thaqua?)
  9. The Ice Giants (big ol’ mutants)
  10. The Crawling Caves (randomized cavecrawl)

Missing from the download is the artwork from the magazine – an incredible rendition of the Tundra Wyrm by Patrick Farley and a cool, smashed Space Alien flying saucer by Kesher.

Man, I love writing shit for CARCOSA and I’m stoked that Fight On! has been so open to submissions.
