Pick #79: Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque

Have you ever wanted to do Gothic adventuring, wistfully looked at Vampire the Masquerade - but didn't want to play a lovesick undead creature? Looked at Grindhouse Lamentations or Carcosa and thought it too weird for you? Loved Poe more than Moorcock, but never dared to leave the fantasy arena? TOTG&D may be something for you.

Just a few days ago liche lord Jack Shear put his home brew Labyrinth Lord campaign resource out on the web, for free. It's called Tales of the Grotesque and Dungeonesque, like the blog, and sports 116 pages of remarkably good stuff. Good enough for me to want to plunder it for ideas. And good enough to think wistfully about gothic adventure campaigning. Have a look, and drop Jack a word to tell him what you think of it.
