I’m the GM of a Middle-earth game using Cubicle7’s new The One Ring rules. I’ve also posted here the writeups of the PCs’ first outing, The Treasure of the House of Dathrin using the HârnMaster rules in 2008. In that episode a party of seven dwarves (you almost couldn’t make it up!) retrieved a long lost hoard hidden in the Lonely Mountain with ancient Moria-lore so secret and so safe that it escaped the clutches of Smaug the Golden. The campaign ‘The Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain’ morphed into the immmodestly named ‘Legends of Erebor’ (as a nod to the FATE RPG ‘Legends of Anglerre’, which I didn’t get round to using). And now we’re playing THE MARSH BELL out of the back of the TOR book, with three of the original dwarves and three other chance-met heroes of Wilderland.
I also DMed The Fairy Ring in the Nentir Vale, which went onto hiatus between H2 and H3 when the group switched to playing Gary’s Savage Worlds Meandering Kane and then BRP Chronicles of Future Earth. It won’t ever be coming off hiatus for H3.
I also briefly posted writeups of “Death in Laa”, a Cthulhu Dark Ages game run by Gary and written up (painfully ‘authentically’) in character by me. If you just found this by searching on that term, I’m sorry but it had to go offline to make room for the Dwarves, until I go Obsidian Portal ‘Ascendant’!
And while I’m here…
Anyone interested enough to have clicked into here might like to know about my name and avatar and stuff.
“Osric” (“of Ossulston”) was my Anglo-Saxon character name when I was a living history and battle-re-enactor in the Middleseaxe (London) group of Regia Anglorum. The name had been haunting me for a few years (I think / presume from its use by RE Howard in the Conan stories) but it was also going to be easy for my friends to remember because I wore several Ozric Tentacles T-shirts back then.
I’ve been using it online since the mid 90s. It’s not a reference to the character in Hamlet nor to the AD&D clone, ‘OSRIC’.
I’ve adopted a drawing I did years ago as a character sketch for my mate Dave’s MERP character, Frealaf. I took a photo of him wearing a borrowed re-enactment spectacle helm (thank you, Simon Kind) and then traced the drawing from it. (The dodgy beard is down to poor drawing skills, and was not a part of the original Dave!)
So it’s not Osric, and it isn’t even me. But it’s my own work and it sort of has become part of my identity too, these days.
