Print & Play Mass Battle for the Holidays!

The elves have had it. They have marshaled their forces and intend to overthrow their oppressor; Santa Claus! Santa will not tolerate a worker’s uprising. He has ordered his most fearsome creatures and toys to arms and will meet the elves on the field of battle.

These game rules are not designed to create balanced or unbalanced conflicts. They are hacked from my role-play mass battle system going into the Deluxe USR Sword & Sorcery RPG. This re-purposing of my experimental rules simulates a fantasy battle between Santa and his slaves, the Elves!

Released by Peryton Publishing and available as PDF.

What you get: 3 pages of rules, 1 page of tables and charts, and counter sheets. B/W P&P

OSR Adventures from Vanishing Tower Press!

A gasping faithful of the Grim Gauntlet, gripping bloodied mace in gashed hands, lies wounded in the forest. They have just crawled out from their failed mission within the “Hole”. A trio of fanged-mouthed humanoids killed their party before they escaped with their life. Robid has sworn to destroy this forgotten shrine of evil. Will the PCs help?

This 40 page adventure site pits your PCs against a well-organized tribe of troglodytes and alien slime. Should be an excellent OSR-scaled challenge for 2-6 level characters. Adult Content. Experienced Dungeon Masters and Game Referees only.

  1. Where is Western USR? Trying to find it everywhere...

    1. I pulled it off sale because I was not happy with it. I plan on rereleasing it when I make a new version. Mostly presentation and an included adventure.
