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!

Converting Alex Mayo’s Gwendolyn to GURPS Dungeon Fantasy

Alex Mayo is an artist known to many in the OSR, and you can find his patreon here

He recently posted a patrons only character and weapon combo for 5e, Gwendolyn and the Sword of Rectitude, essentially a Holy Avenger that got tired of waiting for a suitably pure bearer and created its own paladin.

Here is my version
