Justin Stewart has released a D10 Fighter Advancement Table for LotFP on his blog . I like the idea of giving a fighter a bit more options than just „+1 to attack“, although this already is a mighty and powerful benefit. Over time, the fighter turns into a character that is unimpressed by most “medium” armor and turns foes that are “untouchable” due to a high AC to something “manageable” (reads: bloody chunks).
Here is my take on such a table. I am hereby guilty of being a copy-cat, as I only work on Justin´s idea. But as he in turn states that his work was inspired by this random advancement system I guess he is not going to ask his personal murder-fairy to serve my head on a plate to him *note to myself: develope a personal murder-fairy and grow over-sized flytraps… *

I just initiated a flashsale on drivethrurpg.com:
Gregorius21778: Looks&Details of post-apocalyptic Marauders will be on sale for $0.30 till 21st of January 2018. Well, for those who use this link, anway: I created this offer for those who read my drivethrurpg.com newsletter (which I send monthly) and those who read my blog.
Looks & Details of post-apocalyptic was my very first title, the one I started out with in 2016.
A good friend of mine had introduced me to the concept of using playlists with selected tracks to enhance the atmosphere of an RPG. I can only recomment it, and would like to share with you a good (and affordable) non-RPG-industry resource for it: the Darkest Dungeon Soundtrack (from the computer game of the same name).

In December 2017 Miska Fredman released a map on his blog he named The Dwarven Rivergate. A rivergate is basically a small fortress (or large tower) in the middle of large bridge. Manned by a few men-at-arms, it is a good way to keep undesirables out (or to at least hinder their traveling), to raise a toll or to guard a segment of a wide river. But what about an abadoned rivergate? In Miska´s example, it became the encampment of a band of orks and goblins that raid the surroundings. I want to provide you with six further ideas for encounters at a rivergate [OSR-fantasy-style]

March 2017 a blogger named Marissa Lawson released this picture on her blog. Since then, I kept the link and waited for a good moment to build an encounter location inspired by it.
Back then, the first idea that sprung up in my mind was to write a location for a hex in Carcosa, but the rules systems is not to my taste. I will use some of its “vibe” instead, but give stats for classic OSR games (AC:12 as the armor class of an unarmored person; higher AC means better armor) and a “silver coin standard” (opposed to a “gold coin standard”).
It is up to you if you place this location into a valley, into a large cavern or turn it into a region of its own (in this world or another).
