There are only 7 plot devices for every metastory. Perhaps you only need a D7
I always think of adventures as all being variations of “Put the characters in a hole, throw stones as them as they try to get out.”
Your plot is the hole, the stones are the encounters and the characters attempts to climb out is the story we tell over the campaign sessions.… Read the rest
When we [BriH, Edgcltd and I] wrote and released our 50in50 adventures we studiously avoided including any explicitly Rolemaster Stats (I was naughty and created a new monster or two along the way) to make them system neutral.
Since we released them we have sold over 2,200 copies.… Read the rest
I know I could do all the research myself but I thought this would be a fun post and something people could get creative with.
Here is the idea. Evil Villain (called Evie from now on) has a plan. She wants to infect rats with a horrible plague and then use the rats to infect the people and get the people to infect each other.… Read the rest
I saw this exchange on Reddit today…
Hey guys, I am writing an adventure for a campaign set on Skull Island and I was wondering what advice you guys can offer to make the campaign and adventure great. 🙂
Don’t “write adventures”; doing that creates a tendency to railroad players.… Read the rest
With RPGNow being shut down, sales figures for that site have been added to those from DriveThruRPG. This has resulted in many of the 50 in 50 supplements reaching Copper level.

What I am wondering is how we can stretch this out to a nice round 10,000 exp per character?… Read the rest
The City of Spiders, one of the first supplements published in the 50 in 50 series (there are still some more left to publish; I’m working on finishing off one that Brian sent me but damaging my back, my arm, my shoulder, my finger and Christmas have all got in the way!) has just reached the Copper best seller rank on RPGNow.… Read the rest
The 50 in 50 (yes, they aren’t quite all done yet) adventure hook Gauntlet on the Ice has just been updated with a new hex grid version of the battlemap in a second PDF.
It’s taken some time to get to this point, but if you have the adventure hook already, and are subscribed, you will have got a message about the update.… Read the rest
This is well timed!
How about The Invincible Mage Eric the Terrible!
Eric is, or should I say was, the cause of much pain and suffering in our latest 50in50 adventure.
Following on from BriH’s 40th level spell and Rolemaster statted magic items in the The Curse of the Ancient Tomb this adventure has a new Rolemaster statted monster, the Velociraptor, the star of the first Jurasic Park movie.… Read the rest
