Tim Kask & James M. Ward News

Dark Outpost
 In the depths of space no one can hear James Ward writing some old school science fantasy goodness the Dark Outpost has already received some coverage from other bloggers. Incase you missed it here's what its all about : 
Dark Outpost is a generic science fiction adventure set aboard a spacestation in geosynchronous orbit above a small class M planet. This massive station, built by robots and crewed by automated machines, is the pride of the galactic fleet, and the hope of those that will colonize the planet below.  But something has gone wrong. 
Nearly a month ago, all communications from the outpost ceased.  A patrol vessel was sent in to investigate, and it, too, was never again heard from.  Since that time the Planet Kask outpost has been known as the Dark Outpost.  Have you the courage to explore its mystery?

Dark outpost is a frighteningly deadly adventure for 3 or more characters of moderate experience from the mind of the revered master of sci-fi, James M. Ward.  Packed with new material, Dark Oupost is more of a mini-campaign than a mere adventure, and it is guaranteed to provide dozens of hours of enjoyment over multiple play sessions for any game master.
 However theirs also this video post about Metamorphosis Alpha's reboot & to say I'm excited is an understatement! This adventure could be used with the old school Metamorphisis Alpha rpg as an other dungeon crawl in space..Here

Tim Kask has the sort of twisted mind that thinks up all kinds of weirdness including this new wrinkle on a steaming fetid swamp adventure. Dig that groovy cover

Snakeriders of the Aradondo

Description : 
Hidden amidst a jungle teaming with giant crocodiles, man-eating carnivorus apes, and frogs the size of ponies lies a forgotten temple that harbors the bane of mankind.  The skilled might reach this temple.  The exceptional might actual discover its secrets and prevent a great evil from emerging to plague all the inhabitants of this world. Adventure is calling... will you accept the charges?
Snakeriders of the Aradondo is a classic Old Skool dungeon from the twisted mind of fantasy legend Tim Kask.  Containing both an overland adventure and a dungeon crawl, this non-system specific adventure is guaranteed to provide multiple sessions of entertainment for 3 or more players of average to skilled experience.
 You can pick up this one right Here

I'm a bit skeptical of the stat blocks however that's not really a deal breaker here & I think they might be easily converted around. You can read more about this Here

I personally would use these with Mutant Future, Labyrinth Lord, Terminal Space, & Crypts & Things. This is only a personal opinion however your mileage might very 


  1. Dark Outpost definately sounds interesting!
    I don't get the odd new stat blocks though?

  2. If you look at the preview on DriveThru Rpg you'll get a pretty good sense of what Eldrith Enterprises is goin' for. I don't see them being bad at all. The conversion looks pretty straight forward. The price isn't so bad & Blair over at Planet Algol seemed pretty excited about Snakeriders of the Aradondo. I'm excited for Dark Outpost. The cover art looks a bit kooky & definitely on my want list. Thanks for the comment.. More to come!
