The Barbarian's Vault

It is no secret that I've been working on (and extolling) the virtues of one of my favorite table-top RPGs recently both on here and on Twitter; Barbarians of Lemuria.

I've been getting things together to run my "Great Campaign," and in the interrim I've been messing around with the system a little more. Drawing from the plethora of BoL-inspired games, as well as the Mythic Edition playtest. Great stuff all around.
While toying with it, I came up with an interesting character concept that draws heavily from The Elder Scrolls' lore, namely soul-trapping and soul gems, but with a twist.

As such, I've created an item that utilizes this concept, as well as a sample spell using BoL's free-form magic system that I've discussed at length in the last power. See more about it after the break.

Barbarians of Lemuria and the Great Campaign

I've been extolling the virtues of Barbarians of Lemuria, or BoL, for quite a long time now. It's a fantastic rules light game system that handles pulp incredibly well. While the main rule-set is for some Conan-esque swords and sorcery fun, it's been ported to handle 1980s action movies, pirates and the high seas, traditional high fantasy, Greek myths and tales, noir pulp, and the post apocalypse. Essentially, it's a very versatile system. This forum post, describes the game and system in pretty great detail.

Now that I've talked about the system and its flexibility and versatility, let's jump into the meat and bones of it.

Legend4ry D&D Era Publications

Hey folks, you may have noticed the redesign of Legend4ry D&D, now rebranded as Legend4ry Gaming.

I've been in a creative mood recently and have gotten back into creating for games, though with a more system agnostic bent to it. The intent is to get back to posting here semi-regularly with some fun (mostly) system agnostic items, adventures, seeds, creatures, and more.

In the meantime I've been cleaning up the blog's design quite a bit and am re-linking the "publications" (for lack of a better term) I put out during Legend4ry D&D's tenure. This post will be linked in the sidebar for easier access to these publications.
