DemiHumans of Dolmenwood

bxdod

Gavin Norman, Author of the B/X Essentials and one of the minds (along with Greg Gorgonmilk) behind Dolmenwood. 

The Dolmenwood is the campaign setting described in the most excellent zine, Wormskin. The setting is a twisted fairytale woods, a little Brian Froud flavored with a little bit of Princess Mononoke , with a very Dunsanyan feel to it, Which is no wonder, as Greg has published a collection of Lord Dunsany’s writing.

Prior to this setting’s release, the closest to it in feel was a cross between John Stater’s Bloody Basic: Mother Goose Edition and Bloody Basic:Weird Fantasy Edition, both of which I enjoy.

The 1st issue of Wormskin is now accompanied by the above Demihumans of Dolmenwood, and it is just great. The takes on elves and dwarves are stange and endearing;  elves seem alien and cruel, like those in The Broken Sword by Pihn Anderson. Dwarves are part plant druids,  there is a Puss in Boots/Cheshire Cat creature called a Grimalkin, and the bat faced goblins called Woodgrue are absolutely delightful gremlins.

I wrote up a DF conversion of them HERE For Free!

I used several DF books, DF3, DF5, DF9, DF15, and Pyramid #3/50 along with Magic to perform the conversion.

For further play I would recommend GURPS Thaumatology: Urban Magics  For its Ley Line spells, and DF16 Wilderness Adventures

All of these are on sale today at Warehouse 23!

I fucking love Woodgrues!
