Zine alert!

ZINE ALERT! Inspired by Christian Walker's thoroughly enjoyable Loviatar zine, I thought I'd take a crack at a zine/module hybrid. Zogorion Lord of the Hippogriffs is a micro-sized adventure written for the Swords & Wizardry rules (which means almost interchangeable with any Oe or Basic-style version of the original role playing game). The module features a detached card stock cover/map and a digest sized 16 page booklet published using old fashioned copy shop technologies and mailed to you (in the US) for the sub-break-even price of $2.00.


My secondary aim in writing this module was to present an adventure that could be played to completion in under two hours (google+ style), with a little wiggle room for player/character intros, loot division, funeral arrangements, etc.

Blurb:

While aimlessly wandering from hex to hex, your motley assortment of ne'er-do-wells receives an unusual invitation to dinner from an even more unusual individual. He calls himself Mighty Zog, Lord of the Hippogriffs. Preposterous, perhaps, but given your typically impecunious position and the complete absence of anywhere else to stay for the night in the gods-forsaken wilderness, you may wish to take him up on the offer...and then rob him blind. Would that it were so easy!

  4. This is a great piece of work. The light-hearted feel if the arrogant and yet likable hippogriff just oozes old school and reminds me of many of the wacky (yet still deadly) early modules I used to enjoy as a kid. A solid GM could play this hippogriff to the T and make this an extremely enjoyable and memorable adventure folks would remember for years.
