Mike and I have begun generating the content that is going to go into the Swords of Kos RPG, using my Swords of Infinity rules engine, and during this process I've found some gaps that needed addressing.

In last week's Runequest Thursday, I mentioned my fandom for the old Metagaming publication The Fantasy Trip, comprised of In the Labyrinth and its companion volumes Advanced Melee and

The BASH Swords of Kos Bundle, which includes the Player's Guide to the Aegean and Men and Monsters of the Aegean, is now available - at a 25% saving over buying the two publications separately.

In a recent development journal post I went into details about how I might handle travel in the Swords of Infinity RPG system. After a bit of reflection I realized that it is a concept that could apply to most RPGs, and so I have pulled together an example "Travel Table" that can be used as a template in almost any sort of RPG.

During the d-Infinity Playtest Monday: Swords of Infinity #14, we continued with storyteller Brendan Cass's scenario in which the character party is literally making its way through Hell! In this most recent session, our characters had to make their case before Minos, Judge of the Dead — who exercised some leniency, we think, because none of us were actually dead yet — and in the course of this episode encountered the "Bestial Bailiffs" that maintain order in the courts of the underworld. I have, accordingly, stat'ed up the 5th Edition D&D versions and variants on them that appear here. 

Here is the latest preview for the upcoming Monks magic item book.

This took a lot of work! There are probably those who would point out all manner of mistakes with the math, but I did my best!

This article covers the belt structure used in the studio I both teach and train in, with a few minor modifications. This will cover from 1st to 20th level.

For our recent d-Infinity Live Challenge, I asked the players each to design a mash-up setting for an RPG based on some of their favorite, most inspiring music. We had a great show, with terrific entries, all of which turned out to be extremely different, yet very playable, games. I thought I would post my entry here.

Seeing as I am posting after the d-Infinity Amusical Proposition Challenge, I thought my answer should have a twist. So instead of using music to create a game, I'll do the opposite — find a piece of music that suits a game or setting and, more specifically, creations that have been featured at d-Infinity Online. The first three are my main answer but there were others that almost added themselves!
