It seems impossible to me that anyone who willingly wastes their time reading this blog (and thank you for doing so!) wouldn’t already be familiar with Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets, by everyone’s favorite flying mammal, the man called bat. But if by some chance you aren’t (or are, but don’t read it regularly), go there now!
bat’s been doing daily posts of high quality spells, magic items, monsters and other yummy goodness for Labyrinth Lord for two years as of today. And there’s great flavor with these delicious tidbits, too, which is all the more impressive.
Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets was one of the key inspirations that got me off my tail and putting out what little content I (by comparison) have given to the world. The creativity and quality we get – for free, no less – from bat’s efforts should be trumpeted from the rooftops and embraced by every single person who is even remotely interested in RPGs of a certain vintage (and all the others, too!). Publishers who put out a fraction of the material (and charge good money for it, no less) should be downright ashamed in the face of the awesome that bat brings. Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets just plain rocks, people!
So let’s all have a piece of imaginary internet geek cake in honor of this grand anniversary. Three cheers for Ancient Vaults & Eldritch Secrets and the man who brings them to us daily!
The Bat does do a good blog, I’m a regular reader of it – along with this fine e-publication.
I’ve let the old hobgoblin blog slide recently – I’m not really gaming (although that will hopefully change in the next month) and just found i didn’t really have much to write about
We just need to get you back to gaming, Gobbo. Then you can hit us with some more yummy stuff! I’m glad you read bat’s site. It’s aces!
You villain! *
* Thank you, my friend! Although I just type and blather away, you are the creative one here.
You’re quite welcome, amigo. I meant every word I wrote. And stop underselling your creativity, man! Your chronicles of Chalk, Koram and Valance (and that wacky illusionist & druid twofer) and the rest are, in my mind, the most enjoyable thing to come out of the entire stinking OSR thing. So there. Nyah. :p
Cheers to you!
