Attronarch's Athenaeum


It's that time of the year again. May our wallets survive.

Here are some Troll Lord Games adventures and supplements I've found useful and enjoyable, although I do not run Castle & Crusaders system.

I found most of TLG stuff to have minor errors (e.g. typos, location missing on a map, etc.). Also, most of the modules do require prep. Despite that, I found below worthy of mentioning.

Palladium Fantasy RPG 1E and 2E books are currently on sale at DriveThruRPG. I found their old stuff to be quite well made, but I mostly use it for inspiration, drawings and maps. Here are few of my favourite picks:

  • Palladium RPG Book II: Old Ones. Includes 21 forts, 34 towns and cities, over half a dozen adventures, monks, illusionists, and the dreaded Old Ones. 50+ locations all described and mapped, information about the Old Ones, the Illusionist, Monk, and Minotaur, many NPCs, seven adventures, plus adventure ideas and more.
  • Palladium RPG Book III: Adventures on the High Seas. Ships of the world, Demon Black Ships, ship combat, islands of the world, 12 O.C.C.s including the Sailor and Pirate, character sheets, maps, and countless adventure ideas when you visit a dozen island ports including the Isle of the Cyclops, Y-Oda, Zy, the Four Sisters, Forbidden Island, the Floenry Islands, and others, each offering adventure opportunities.
  • Palladium RPG Book VII: Yin-Sloth Jungles. Includes Yin-Sloth Jungles, the Orcish Empire, notable cities, 25+ locations and maps, four full adventures, adventure ideas and more.

I also love their weapon books, but they currently aren't on sale.

Adventures Dark and Deep, a what-if AD&D 1E was updated to 2E using only later articles published by Gygax, is currently available as digital bundle for $0.

Just like the edition it emulates, it consists of Player's Manual, Game Master's Toolkit, and Bestiary. I ordered print version in January and haven't regretted it:




There is a lot in there and bestiary is just stunning. Table of contents could be better, but that is nitpicking. You can't go wrong with grabbing it for free.
