Hambone is setting the pace this week on the Vintage RPG Podcast as we talk about WHPA-13: Weird Heroes of Public Access (2022) from Get Haunted Industries. It’s an RPG zine about strange goings on around town and the romance of UHF TV, what’s not to love? * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you dig what we do, join us on the Vint…
 
Deeper and deeper we go. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at the first issue of DNGN, a megadungeon zine from Singing Flame. We also discuss the one-page dungeon format and a little bit about the infamous Stonehell. * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you dig what we do, join us on the Vintage RPG Patreon for more rol…
 
Chaos lurks just under the surface. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about the Enemy Within campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. We recap the original, theorize about where it went off the rails, enthuse over Cubicle 7’s five-volume remaster and discuss the perils of satire. * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you…
 
Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at the Battlesystem, TSR’s mostly failed attempt to shoehorn wargaming back into the Dungeons & Dragons experience. We also talk a bit about TSR’s failed foray into making miniatures. Mess after mess. But at least it gave us that amazing Jeff Easley painting! * * * Hang out with us…
 
Nothing is what it seems! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at the classic Dungeons & Dragons monster, the Mimc. Or do we? Here be twists and turns! * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you dig what we do, join us on the Vintage RPG Patreon for more roleplaying fun and surprises! Patrons keep us going!…
 
Lost, now found. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at NECA’s “Lost Wave” of Dungeons & Dragons toys. When LJN Toys shut down the D&D toy line, these four toys — Valkeer the Barbarian, Skylla the Sorceress, Pulvereye the Cyclops and a Kelek variant — were in various states of completion, but unreleased. Now, thanks to some miracle or the…
 
For years I’ve said I wasn’t going to paint miniatures. No talent, I said. No patience, I said. Too expensive, I said. I have enough hobbies, I said. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about how I’ve started painting miniatures! * * * We got you covered with Noble Knight through September 14 with code ARCANA. Use it for 10% off purchases…
 
Every once in a while, we stumble upon a true treasure. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at The Bestiary (1987) for Bard Games’ Atlantis RPG. While I’m fond of the stuff Bard Games made generally, this book is over-the-top awesome because it is primarily illustrated by legendary comic artist Bill Sienkiewicz. Page after page of gorgeou…
 
Let me outta here! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we check out Luka Rejec’s special Halloween scenario Let Us In (2021), a lean, mean, system agnostic horror zine that uses a timetable to keep play at a tight three hours. Black, white and orange goodness, all the way through. * * * We got you covered with Noble Knight through September 14 wi…
 
Is it wise to follow the Minotaur around the labyrinth? This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’re lost in Christopher Manson’s Maze (1985). This is an unusual book, part armchair treasure hunt (for a $10,000 prize), part pick-your-path gamebook. The aim of the game is simple: find your way to the center of the maze and back in the least number of…
 
Down in the dark we go! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we check out the classic board game Dungeon! (1975). The origins of the game are entwined with the origins of Dungeons & Dragons, and all the dungeon crawling board games since owe Dave Megarry’s creation a debt of gratitude. * * * We got you covered with Noble Knight through September 1…
 
Cthulhu Fhtagn! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we check out Chaosium’s new Call of Cthulhu sourcebook, Cults of Cthulhu. Despite the big squid being in the title of the game, the Great Old One is oddly absent in the majority of the RPG’s material, partly because he’s snoozing on the job, mostly because Nyarlathotep, that ham, steals the spot…
 
Make ours Marvel! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at TSR’s massive, 8-volume compendium of Marvel comics lore, The Gamer’s Handbook of the Marvel Universe (1988-1992). They’re like a monster manual of superheroes and villains, some awesome, some doofy, some downright perplexing. They also amount to being an interesting in-unive…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we travel down the darkened hedgerows of British folk magic traditions with a look at Of Shadows: One Hundred Objects from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic (2016), from Strange Attractor Press. As the title says, this is a collection of objects selected by photographer Sara Hannant that present in all their s…
 
Beholders and Sahuagin and Mind Flayers, oh my! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we chat about Monstrous Arcana, a series of sourcebooks and adventures late in the D&D 2E days that explored three of the game’s most iconic monsters in alarming detail. The series is one of several crystal balls through which we can see some inkling of what 3E mi…
 
Another week, another discovery of some weird ass bootleg D&D toys! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, Stu discovers Arco’s dime store line of little plastic monster dudes, Dragons n’ Monsters. This one is more bootleg than most! We also chat a bit about Arco’s weird tie-in toy line for the movie The Sword and the Sorcerer and the forthcoming “l…
 
Desert power! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at the classic strategy game Dune (1979 from Avalon Hill, though Stu played the 2019 reprint from Gale Force Nine). There are a lot of cool things in Dune that have become staples of modern board game design, but it still manages to deliver a unique, spice-flavored experience. * * * Hang o…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a turn at being the villains in Reverse Dungeon. An adventure from very late in the 2E D&D line, it is very much the D&D-ification of the classic videogame Dungeon Keeper, but with some unexpected twists and turns. * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you dig what we do, join us on the …
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we do some urban exploration and investigate Dead Mall, a neat Tunnel Goons hack about the ruined temples of capitalism. We also discuss Nate Treme's Tunnel Goons and Satanic Panic at Crowley Place Mall, a zine scenario for Dead Mall. * * * Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you dig what we do, joi…
 
If you like tables, we've got some books for you! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we check out Jennell Jaquays' series of Central Casting books, for use creating both player and non-player characters of alarming depth and, sometimes, bizarre circumstances. There are three flavors: Heroes of Legend (1988), our focus, which tackles fantasy back…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we run to the border…lands. OK, never mind, I’ll leave the jokes to Hambone. For real: this week we’re talking about the RuneQuest box set Borderlands (1982), an excellent campaign about getting a job and doing it well. There’s no real narrative arc, no cackling villain, no dark plot. Stuff happens and the play…
 
Aaaand we're back! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at the horror storytelling game Dread and its unusual method of task resolution (hint: it involves a Jenga tower). And heck, let's make it a double: we also discuss the storytelling game of doomed romance, Star Crossed, which also uses a Jenga tower! * * * Use code DAYLIGHT wit…
 
A rerun? Yep, sometimes you just gotta rest the brains. So have a remastered Players Handbook! Originally aired to a whole different world, on December 23, 2019. Original hype text: We crack the cover of the classic Players Handbook (1978) for first edition Dungeons & Dragons. We talk a lot about Trampier's iconic, forbidding cover, of course, but …
 
Coming from an era of RPGs in which you could still get away with just naming your game Wizard, this week on the Vintage RPG Podcast we're looking at Melee, Wizard and the larger Fantasy Trip RPG. We focus on its innovative use of point-buy mechanics, but also get into the game's larger place in RPG history. * * * Use code DAYLIGHT with your purcha…
 
Strap in, cuz we got bootleg toys! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, direct from the five and dime, we check out Stu's Dragonriders of the Styx toys from the early 80s. For a bunch of cheap fantasy toys, they actually have a fun and weird intersection with Dungeons & Dragons! * * * Use code DAYLIGHT with your purchases at Noble Knight! Our frie…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at another board game: Return to Dark Tower. This is Restoration Games’ new sequel/revamp of the 1981 Milton Bradley electronic board game Dark Tower that…if not a classic, certainly has a compelling mystique born from the intersection of its rarity, its D&D-like fantasy theming and its place at …
 
The ring of invisibility is one of the most iconic magic items in RPGs. But where does it come from? (Hint: it isn’t Tolkien!) * * * Use code DAYLIGHT with your purchases at Noble Knight! Our friends are their friends and get 10% off all purchases on the site or in the store! Good through May 31. Hang out with us on the Vintage RPG Discord! If you …
 
Getting lots of actual playtime in lately. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, Stu’s fresh off his first session of Troika and he’s keen to share his impressions. It’s weird and easy and did we mention weird? * * * Use code DAYLIGHT with your purchases at Noble Knight! Our friends are their friends and get 10% off all purchases on the site or in …
 
Our first funnel! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’ve got an after action report for the first half of the Dungeon Crawl Classics 67: Sailors on the Starless Sea, which Zog is running us through. Granted, we’re only on the edge of the really weird stuff, but we’ve seen enough to start ruminating. And there are plenty of corpses already. Hon…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’re back on RuneQuest, talking about some of the stuff that makes the world of Glorantha special, specifically its approach to mythology, time and its surprising meta-commentary on roleplaying games themselves! That’s two RuneQuest episodes and we’re still barely scratching the surface. * * * Hang out with us…
 
Scream for me, Fae Wray! This week, the Vintage RPG Podcast travels to Skull Island to discuss some of the surprising influences of the greatest monster movie ever made: King Kong! The 1933 version, of course, get that remake trash outta here. You can see the still from Son of Kong mentioned in the episode on the right. * * * Hang out with us on th…
 
I recently came into possession of like five feet of Traveller and it made me realize, holy crap, there is a lot of Traveller! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at the span of the Traveller RPG through the 20th century. That’s a quick look at both versions of Classic Traveller (1977 and 1983), MegaTraveller (1986), New Era (1993)…
 
You know what kind of sucks? Awards. Oscars, Grammys, whatever. RPG awards are no exception. But Joe DeSimone doesn't think they need to be that way. So he's starting his own awards for RPGs called The Awards. And you know what? They might suck, too! He's upfront about that. But if they do, they’ll suck in a completely new way and maybe even pave t…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we barely scratch the surface of RuneQuest (1978), Chaosium’s classic first foray into RPGs. We talk about the games origins in the earlier wargame, White Bear & Red Moon (1975), the skill-based RPG, the limitations of class as a concept, the different sorts of magic and, seriously, that’s more than enough for …
 
Ever buy an old RPG box set and find some maps or a character sheet inside? For me, it conjures up a specific sort of warm feeling. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we take a look at some of Tim Hutchings' efforts to preserve that sort gaming ephemera in The Habitation of the Stone Giant Lord, a book collecting homebrew D&D adventures written …
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, Hambone talks to Charlie Ferguson Avery and Alex Coggon of Feral Indie Studios about ZiMo 2022, their indie RPG zine showcase, running the whole month of February! ZINES! Get ‘em! * * * Stu will be back next week, promise! New Noble Knight promo code! Use RINGOFWARMTH in store or on the site to get 10% off what…
 
"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel." That’s the first line of William Gibson’s 1984 novel Neuromancer and, just like that, he pretty much codified the aesthetic of cyberpunk. This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we go ga-ga over the novel and look at the way it influenced cyberpunk RPGs. Or was ripped off …
 
Like your dungeon crawls to be over the top? This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we go way over the top and check out the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG. It’s got gonzo for days, horrible dooms, epic spell failures, weird ass dice and enough old school style art to fill a museum with. What’s not to love? * * * Did Santa forget something? Use this pro…
 
It ain't just D&D that's getting hacked and cloned! Want to play a system that retains the flavors of 80s-era British fantasy? Warlock, from Fire Ruby Designs, has you covered by being a bit more robust than Advanced Fighting Fantasy and a lot less cumbersome than Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. We check it out on this week's Vintage RPG Podcast. * * *…
 
Happy New Year! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we return to Appendix N and check out The Broken Sword, a novel by Poul Anderson. Unlike Three Hearts and Three Lions, it’s a fantastic, violent and often unparalleled work of influential fantasy. * * * Did Santa forget something? Use this promo code from Noble Knight to make it all better. Use …
 
We got you some monsters for Christmas! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about the Monstrous Compendium (1989) for second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. You know what else we talk about? Office supplies and how great they are. Join us for another thrilling episode! * * * Did Santa forget something? Use this promo code from Noble …
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we talk about the Campaign Sourcebook and Catacomb Guide (1990), the first Dungeon Masters Guide expansion for second edition Dungeons & Dragons. That might sound dull, but I promise you, it is a wild ride into the substrate of the RPG psyche — it's one part deconstruction of the hobby and one part a kind of ev…
 
Back in October, Stu ran “Chariot of the Gods,” the cinematic scenario in the Alien Starter Set. Not once, but twice! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast we talk about how it went. Who survived? What was left of them? Well, we aren’t telling because that would spoil the fun. But we do dig into Stu’s general impressions of how the game works and th…
 
It’s a little late for a holiday gift guide, even without the worldwide supply chain issues and shipping delays, so let’s call this episode of the Vintage RPG Podcast “Cool RPG stuff that came out this year (and is maybe made by our friends).” While it may be too late for the December holidays (though PDFs make for fine gifts, too!), the monopoly D…
 
We did Fighting Fantasy last week, so this week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, it seemed like a fun idea to take a look at a board game inspired by Fighting Fantasy, the spectacular Escape the Dark Castle, from Themeborne. So many great things about this game: the gnarly throwback art, the punishing difficulty, the narrative focus, the incredible ease…
 
On the Vintage RPG Podcast this week, the guys talk about the famed adventure gamebook franchise, Fighting Fantasy, developed by Ian Livingstone and (English) Steve Jackson. Hambone also has a chat with Ryan Verniere about his forthcoming RPG, Blackbirds, now up for pre-order on BackerKit. This forthright post is brought to you by Stu’s head cold. …
 
And now, here's something we hope you'll really like! Did you know that there’s a Rocky and Bullwinkle RPG? Yup: the Bullwinkle and Rocky Role-Playing Party Game! Do you even have a clue who Rocky and Bullwinkle are? Did you get that the first line of this post is a reference to their cartoon? Maybe you did, maybe you didn’t, but that doesn’t chang…
 
Ships and desert islands and sea shanties and secret treasures: we’re getting nautical on this week’s episode of the Vintage RPG Podcast. First up, N4 — Treasure Hunt (1986), one of the finest introductory scenarios for first edition Dungeons & Dragons. It’s one of the only modules to successfully pull of the “you’ve been captured and lost all your…
 
This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we're talking 3, 2, 1... Action! with 3, 2, 1... Action! creator Hambone! You probably remember Hambone kickstarted an adventure for the system, Rocket to Russia, back in February during ZineQuest. That scenario is a prelude to Point Nemo, which is hitting Kickstarter on Tuesday. Follow now to be notified on la…
 
Halloween is nearly upon us! For the last few years, we've reserved this week to chat about Ravenloft, but this year we thought we'd talk about a game that seems truer to the spirit of the season: Babes in the Wood, from World Champ Game Company. It's a delightfully spooky game about being a child lost in the woods on an endless Halloween. What cou…
