Here is our regular mixed bag of roleplaying sites, inspiration
and general weirdness.
An English ezine that, whilst it loads very slowly, has loads of
content. It has news, articles, system reviews, downloads and special offers
and is brought to you by editor Sean Flynn.
Below are a number of useful Chaosium links that cover all their
nice systems, Call of Cthulhu, Elric, Pendragon and even Corum.
- Chaosium Digest
Archive - IHGGOL
This site is hosted in Italy. Hence the funny writing. Do not be
put off however as it contains the archives for the long running
Chaosium Digest. 12 volumes are available for download in zip
format or as an online resources with an index. There is plenty to

This is Steve Hatherley's site. He is the editor for Tales of
Terror, a CoC resource from Pagan Publishing . He
has many ideas for CoC here. He is also one of the luminaries of
the UK LARPing scene and this site has information on all of the
freeforms he has written and played.
For those who like their Cthulhu modern, here is a Delta Green
site. Actually it is the Delta Green site, chock full of
goodies such as field reports, scenarios, links to government
agencies, a discussion board and short stories. The future of
humanity probably depends on you accessing this site, before the
clones of Hitler get there.
Champion Roleplaying Games
This is Tom Zunder's site and covers all the aspects of the
Eternal Champion and supports the Eternal Champion mailing list.
Tom also said some kind things about me, so here's looking at
- Book of Brilliant
Book of Brilliant Things is a site dedicated to the Elric!
roleplaying game and its family of supplements and sourcebooks.
Within its pages you will find supporting information, background
material, fiction, rules expansions, scenarios, and much more. It
is written by Lawrence Whitaker who is the author of Corum and the
new edition of Hawkmoon.
S-P-O-N-G-E (that stands for S t o p p i n g - P o w e r f u l - O
r g a n i s m s - f r o m - N - G u l f i n g - E v e r y t h i n
g) is an organization dedicated to exposing and uprooting the
unspeakable horrors that exist on the fringes of our awareness. You
can join, and help to defeat the slimy doers of evil! Fill out the
historian application, and become part of the SPONGE Historian
Network. Oh-er. I'm not quite sure what they are on about but it
looks like fun.
We now move away from the wonder that is BRP onto some more
Online - ArtZone - Sonica Home Page
This is a bit strange and you need the latest Shockwave plugin.
Essentially it is a sound effect generator from the BBC. You could
quite easily use it to record some spooky sounds for you next
This is the personal site of Geoff Cordery . It contains, if you
can get past the annoying Java index, a wealth of articles,
scenarios and other game aids primarily aimed at the Heroic Fantasy
genre but with a touch of CoC too.
- Time In
This is a new UK zine about LARPs, mainly the outdoors sword
wielding kind. It has reviews of a number of these from the UK and
the US and a couple of articles including a short one on Dallas
The Burning Void RPG Resources Page
This is the work of Heather Grove who writes for White Wolf. She
has a number of essays on how to write scenarios and then on how to
get them published. There are also some more genre specific World
of Darkness pieces and an interesting item on the promotion of the
- NEW! TRIO
of DEATH Homepage ADVENTURES
Another site that seems to RPG related. It contains the repository
of all the tales of the TRIO of DEATH from 1986 to the present day.
These are in the CoC - Daredevils genre and as such could well be
used as scenarios for some very foolhardy adventurers. For example,
the Lair of Cthulhu adventure starts:
Exiting Giant Cave
through the timely use of an interdimensional vortex, the Trio
arrive at the Planes of Leng: a surreal landscape where Cthulhu and
his minions rule. Their only chance of escape lies in holding onto
the Book of the Dead... and Cthulhu wants it back!
Terraform Home Page
For you mapping enthusiasts, Terraform is an open source
interactive height field generation and manipulation program.
Terraform runs under Linux and other UNIX systems under the
X11Windowing system, so I can't run it, but it sure does produce
some pretty output as the screenshots attest.
- Fantasy Games
Hey! FGU are back! They don't have anything new but they do have a
shedload of old stock. So if you want to catch up on those old
favourites such as Aftermath!, Bushido, Chivalry and Sorcery,
Flashing Blades, Privateers and Gentlemen, PSI World, Space Opera
and Villains and Vigilantes, here is your chance. Youngsters can
even find out what Sorceror's Cave was all about, and why you need
a bigger house to play it.
- Blach Hat
Matt's Storytelling Page
This site has a number of essays from Matt McFarland about GMing.
They cover topics such as atmosphere, what to do when things go
wrong and how to care for NPCs. There is also a great piece on The
Top 10 Myths about Girl Gamers by Mercurial - who I imagine is not
- Games Unplugged
What is it! Is everyone trying to muscle in our territory? GU have
a neat line in artilces to support their paper zine, colour (dammit!) , news, reviews, yada-yada-yada. I
bet they even get paid too. Actually, if you do have to read
another RPG zine, apart from us, you couldn't do much better.
