Planet Algol is my Insect Shrine of Goblin Hill, Digest-ive Aids, and Public Planet Algol Game

Recently I've received a few emails inquiring when/if/already has? the Planet Algol project has been published; in that regard, although I've horrendously slacked over the summer, I've been obsessively banging away, with the goal of providing both a toolkit of weird science fantasy resources and a campaign setting usable "out of the box" so to speak.

I want this think to be as useful and awesome as I can practically make it. So, much like the aforementioned ISOGH, I've been taking my own sweet, damn time with it. Currently I'm reorganizing/editing  the core material while continuing on cranking out dungeons.

I know I've been repeating platitudes in the above fashion for a while....and before that there was some "Coming Soon In Early 2010!" hot talk. But please bear with me; I want this thing to be the ultimate, ready to use, sandbox campaign setting where you just need to add players. Need a dungeon? There'll be plenty. Need a NPC? There'll be a bunch well as the tables for rolling them up.

In that regard, I'm ready to take the playtesting to the next level...the public, open-house level. I'm going to try and coordinate a second, weekly or bi-weekly, Planet Algol game with the Vancouver Red Box crew.

So if you're interested and are in the Vancouver area, drop me a line (planetalgolATgmailDOTcom); even if you're in town for a couple of days, drop in for a session.

Enough with this bafflegab, let's get back to the gamer-porn; behold, my collection of digest-sized awesomeness:

What I really like about this is that I could just grab a few of these booklets and have a campaign, I could randomly generate a campaign by blindly selecting a couple of these guys! Of course, I still need digest-sized copies of Gamma World, Empire of the Petal Throne, Terminal Space, The LOTFPWFRG booklets, The Arduin trilogy, The Otus Necronomicon, Metamorphosis Alpha, The Underworld & Wilderness Adventure, Labyrinth Lord Advanced Edition Companion, etc, etc, etc!


  1. Digest-sized books rule! See you've a Booty & The Beasts there... pretty sweet, aren't they?

  2. Need more posts with the dirty sneakers label. :)

  3. @TAF: More like Bootleg & The Beasts if you catch my drift... ;)

    @JGB: I'll do my best!

  4. Oh, I know from whence your drift comes... I have one as well! ;D

  5. I really like your covers...*nudge nudge*.

  6. Your staple-fu puts mine to shame :(

  7. @ Icarus: Thanks, but a friend made the customs covers not me.

    @ Anonymous: Thanks! Most of them were stapled by someone else, same dude who made the custom covers.
