Scribd gem: D&D from 1974

While browsing through Scribd, fellow blogger Dominik Dießlin from the german blog Rollenspiel Almanach has found some true gems: the complete Dungeons & Dragons White Box!

Registered users can download all the books as PDF documents. So if you want to check out some really old-school D&D, then you’re just a few clicks away!
 
UPDATE: Scribd has removed the documents at WotC’s request.

The Lost Continent Illyria

Some time ago our fellow RPGBlogger Philippine Gamer has posted about a D&D 4th Edition campaign setting a member of his gaming group, R. Velasco, created: “The Lost Continent Illyria – A Renaissance Magiteck Setting”.
Although (or perhaps because) I am currently working on my own project “World of Asecia”, I had to check out his work.
And I was totally blown away. The setting is only 14 pages long but it’s very well written and uses some great artwork. The PDF document almost looks like a professional roleplaying sourcebook on par with WotC’s work.
Here’s an excerpt for your convenience:

Illyria is a setting where magic, fantasy and technology exist side by side.

Magitech, Portals and Magical skyships, espers and engineers, summoners, and gunknights. Illyria is an unforgiving monarchy where the blood of dragons promote a person’s identity and social status. But still heroes arise in the name of the Queen, or in the name of the Country. Never both.

If you are looking for some setting for your D&D game or some inspiration for your campaign check it out! You won’t regret it!

Roleplaying music: Elyrion Soundtrack

Elyrion is an upcoming german steampunk fantasy roleplaying game. It will be released in the coming days, probably on SPIEL ’08 in Essen. There will also be an official soundtrack composed by Erdenstern. Erdenstern is known for their five “Into the…” albums that contain hours of instrumental music perfectly suited for your roleplaying sessions (Check out my post about them). The music was in fact composed with fantasy roleplaying designed. I will review the soundtrack as soon as it’s out. Until then you can listen to a medley released at the official Erdenstern site.
