Dracula Dossier Campaign Cartographer 3

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Tonight I wanted to have a little play with the new floorplan style for Campaign Cartographer 3 for creating plans in the style of the Dracula Dossier.  With little time available I didn’t want to take on a full blown project like a building so I thought I’d throw together one of the locations beloved […]

Obviously there are RPGs that are licenced from movies.  Others often borrow (and sometimes outright steal) from movies, TVs and books then file off the serial numbers.  I’ve a couple of posts on borrowing inspiration from particular movies in the past and I always intend to write more so to chivvy myself along I’ve decided […]

The Woman in Black Review with Notes for Roleplayers

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

The Woman in Black is a solid attempt to make a classic ghost story from the revived Hammer .  The film making combines the best of the old school Hammer with 21st century production values.  It takes a classic approach to horror eschewing the slasher / blood and gore school of horror.

Serious and Organised Revisited

Saturday, July 29th, 2006
