Character Sheet 0 comments on Bookhacks of London

Bookhacks of London

Following a post on Twitter by @jonnywaistcoat about an interest in running the excellent Bookhounds of London using the rules set from The Cthulhu Hack, I couldn’t help but take up the challenge of creating a thematically suitable character sheet.

I admit, this partially arose as Jonny had made one himself, but also because last time I ran a game of Bookhounds I had created a simple library bookplate-style character sheet (matching the Gumshoe character format).

Anyway – for those who want one, here’s a PDF version of the Bookhacks character sheet. Have fun amongst the stacks.

July sees the inaugural meeting of the #RPGBookClub on Twitter and after a vote earlier last month the first book up for discussion is The Cthulhu Hack.

If you have the PDF lying in your computer Downloads or nestled in your smartphone cloud account of choice, or perhaps you picked it up at a convention, and you haven’t taken the time to read it – this could be the moment, as you won’t be reading it alone.

All you have to do is follow along with the hashtag #RPGBookClub and contribute to the chat.

If you haven’t picked up a copy, you can grab a PDF of The Cthulhu Hack from RPGNow or a physical copy from either Lulu or All Rolled Up.

Stench of the Sea

A breakfast bowl full of polyhedral diceOur first adventure module presents an adventure site for you to introduce into your own world, a jumping in point for a whole new campaign, or simply a one-off adventure to fill a few sessions.

Set against a generic fantasy backdrop, the small settlement of Brinwan seems, at face value, to offer little more than a vacation in the woods, off the beaten track. The locals fish and mine in the hills to the north, but to a passing adventurer seems like just another one night stand. The people in and around Brinwan might, however, prove an unexpected challenge.

The generic system module adventure details, in writing, maps and illustrations, the tiny settlement of Brinwan and surroundings. The PDF includes details of key local personalities (along with their goals and behaviours), nearby locations, encounters, potential hooks, quick adventure seeds, and a core of GM advice on running adventures in and around the area. As this represents writing in progress, Just Crunch will include updates on the ‘modventure’, with tidbits, preview, lost ideas, maps, pictures and more. You can get updates here, on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ – very much as a work in progress, and an interactive opportunity to get involved.

The final product will be available as a PDF through RPG Now and Drive Thru.
