Calling It What It Is - It's Psychic

The Wild Talent Generator (q.v.) was so-named because I thought the term "Wild Talent" — borrowed from Timeship, the role-playing game by Herbie Brennan — was suitably generic for use in both science fiction and fantasy settings (unlike "psionics," which has a distinctly sci-fi origin). Alas, the term is now likelier to evoke images of superpowers thanks to games such as Godlike and, ahem, Wild Talents, so I decided to rename it for what it is, simply and practically: the Random Psychic Power Generator. Perhaps the new title will lead to more interest in it.

Goblin Shrine Encounters for Swords & Wizardry White Box

My entry for the 2015 One Page Dungeon Contest was system neutral, so I created a separate page of encounters for those who want ready-made stats compatible with Swords & Wizardry White Box. I'll probably create additional encounter pages compatible with Labyrinth Lord, OSRIC, and other systems as time allows.

My One Page Dungeon Contest 2015 Entry

This year, I entered the One Page Dungeon Contest for the first time. My entry does not aim to be earth-shattering or genre-defying or anything other an introductory adventure with the potential for multiple avenues of expansion. It is designed for use with any system, although for my own purposes I would stat it for Swords & Wizardry White Box or OD&D. Eventually, I'll run it for one of my gaming groups and post a session report.

As always, comments are welcome.
