2007-05-04 Zorcerer of Zo

After reading yet another positive review of Zorcerer of Zo by Atomic Sock Monkey I finally broke down and bought the PDF online. Trying to emulate two-sided printed on our cheapo printer, once again. See 2007-05-04 Printing Problems for details.

As I read through it, I think I’ll be using (subjective) Fudge rules instead of the “Good Parts” PDQ system presented.

I moved the text I had written to Subjective Fudge of Zo.



no e-book reader on your gp2×? (with pdf2txt or something like that perhaps?)

To be honest, I’d rather read something on paper. Plus the is basically gathering dust in a cupboard of mine. I should have realized that the gp2× is not fundamentally different from the Color Gameboy that is also gathering dust...

I agree. I’d much, much rather have paper than a pdf any day of the week. Bound and glossy too. .pdfs are ok, but it’s just not the same. Old fashioned, I know.

Oh, and if your gp2× needs a good home.............. :)

Hehe. Wanna exchange the gp2× for some RPG material? :D

AlexSchroeder 2007-05-05 12:53 UTC

Lol! It’s a deal :) I’ve a tonne of classic RPG fodder I’ll happily send your way!

Hehe. Well, take a look at my AdventureWishlist and make an offer, or suggest something else. Not sure how customs and postage and packaging and all that will come into play. Just suggest something that seems fair to you.

Lemme see.....

I’ve got a very battered 1st edition of Warhammer Fantasy Role-play and loads of d20 adventures, 5th edition Call of Cthulhu, Chill, Hordes of the Things, Red Book D&D, Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil, Runequest Griffin Island and Land of the Ninja, Rolemaster and lots of Companions and..... awe heck. About 30 years of gaming stuff in boxes upon boxes. More than I even know, methinks.

How about I pull together a box-worth of stuff, list it out and if it’s acceptable we make the trade? :)

If there’s anything from the (short) list above that’s caught your eye, let me know.

I think I’d be most interested in d20 adventures. As for systems themselves, I’d only be interested in systems that received lots of praise recently. As far as I remember those were WFRP 2nd ed. & Runequest 5th ed.

Adventures seem much more likely to stand the test of time. Thus, I’d opt for adventures all the way! :)

AlexSchroeder 2007-05-13 22:18 UTC

Duely noted!

I’ll put together a decent selection this week and post a list. I’m sure I can come up something you’ll like :)

OK, here’s a whole heap of adventures for you (if you want them, of course!). They’re all in very good condition with cracked spines at the most. I’ve included the adventure level to give you an idea of the range and potential usefulness:

The Sunless Citadel (1st), The Forge of Fury (3rd), Deep Horizon (13th), Rappan Athuk: The Upper Levels (4th-9th), Rappan Athuk: The Middle Levels (9th-12th), Death in Freeport (1st-3rd), Terror in Freeport (2nd-5th), Madness in Freeport (4th-6th), Kalamar: The Root of All Evil (1st), Witchfire: The Longest Night (1st-3rd), Into the Belly of the Best (4th-6th), Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil (4th-14th).

That’s 12 great adventures ranging from 1st to 14th in level. Some of them - Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil and the Freeport series in particular - are some of the best adventures ever written for D&D. All of them are good though; I’ve played them all at least once. The Root of All Evil is a terrific scenario. Ignore that it’s set in Kalamar and it fits anywhere. Setting it to start in Ptolus would be fun……

Oh, and I’ve got Oriental Adventures and the Rokugan Campaign Setting sourcebooks too. Both are brilliant, and might well suit your style. They’re gathering dust right now due to lack of interested players ☹

Anyhow, if you want them mail me your address and I’ll send them to you.

It’s a deal! :)

AlexSchroeder 2007-05-15 12:54 UTC

Excellent! I’ll have the package ready to send out on your return then :)
