BBC Lies! SJWs are the Only Gatekeepers in D&D

Well, I decided to share my thoughts about a recent BBC one-minute video featuring a portly feminist claiming that "D&D isn't for beardos in basements" and simultaneously damning the lack of "diversity" and "inclusion" in our hobby. 

Also, I show you how I make Turkish Coffee.

Medieval-Authentic Magical Stones

In the modern New-Age movement there's a lot of nonsense about "healing crystals", but the average new-ager would probably be shocked if they were ever to do some research (which they wouldn't, because they're new-agers) to see what the medieval magicians thought of gems and minerals and their uses.

In RPGPundit Presents #96: Medieval-Authentic Magical Stones, you do NOT get the  new-age nonsense about how amethyst is good for your butt-chakra. Instead, you get a list of different stones, along with a random table for them, some real and some that never actually existed, and the qualities of these stones based on actual sources from the Medieval "Lapidariums" (guides to stones and their uses, a popular topic in medieval "natural philosophy").



Did you know there was a type of 'false silver' that could be made into a potion that drives men mad?

A type of rare chrysolite that could glow like a torch?

A foul-smelling stone, that could cure impotence or make boiling liquid go instantly cold?

The most valuable stone in the entire world: the unique glowing stone that was once part of the Roman Emperor's crown, but is now lost?

A type of ruby that could set fire to wood when rubbed against it?

A stone that can cause nightmares when put under someone's pillow?

All of this according to the greatest medieval minds of the age!


Turn your PC's Natural Philosophy skill into its own lore-mastery of useful stuff, with this 16 page sourcebook. Just $2.99, RPGPundit Presents: Medieval-Authentic Magical Stones is available from the Precis Intermedia Webstore, or from DTRPG!

Alternate Material Plane Generator

One of the things I always found strange playing D&D over the years was that a lot of emphasis was placed, at a certain level of play, on having exciting adventures in the higher planes, the lower planes, the elemental planes, or even the astral planes, but hardly any on Alternate Material Planes.

I mean, it's not like you don't see this in fantasy? How many fantasy novels feature parallel universes, or a 'road of worlds' where adventurers go to all variety of weird places and realities?

The general absence of this in D&D planar mechanics always kind of baffled me.

So, I've written up a generator for creating alternate material planes!



RPGPundit Presents 95: Alternate Material Planes has a number of random tables and mechanics that let you quickly and easily generate whole alternate worlds for your OSR or D&D PCs. Whether its a tiny pocket plane for a one-shot, or a whole world the PCs will come back and forth from, the generator will give you terrain, native races, weird natural or magical rules, generators for civilizations and settlements, local governments, laws, and weird cultures.

You can pick up this 18 page sourcebook for $2.99 from the Precis Intermedia Webstore, or from DTRPG.
