Wormskin Issue 2
Publisher: Necrotic Gnome
by K H A. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 12/09/2018 14:05:54

Another wonderful issue of the zine dedicated to Dolmenwood. This issue fleshes out the SW area of the domain and its bizarre society of human and goatmen. Much of the info could be ported to any setting even without the larger context of Dolmenwood. There are also two tables easily stolen for general use in any game: one on tavern fare and another on psychedlic compounds.

The artwork is a mixed bag. There are some really cool pieces of original art. And the public domain art is just meh.

I have no opinion on the d30 table about tavern food. Might be useful to add some flavor (pun intended) to your game. I find the article about Psychedelics more interesting. How to sell it, how to manufacture it.

The first issue was a bit sparse on actual setting information. This time you have 7 hex descriptions of The High Wold. The village of Lankshorn could be a starting point for the characters. There is enough trouble with the goat-men to offer players opportunities for adventure.

You'll also get a portrait of Lord Malbleat, a cruel goat lord. He could make a good adversary.

Issue 2 concludes with new monsters. I like how you'll also get 1d6 tables for encounters. One of my favorite monsters is the Witch-Owls.

Tall, milky-white owls with violet eyes and uncannily rotating heads, these beings go abroad at dusk to hunt. Rather than the flesh of rodents and lesser birds, witch-owls feed on the psychic bodies of the sentients upon which they prey. The sighting of a witch-owl in flight—even in the distance—is regarded by woodland folk as an ill omen of great portent.

I appreciate the eerie tone of the setting. It's a cruel, twisted world. It reminds me of the original fairy tales. They are dark and grim instead of lovey-dovey like the Disney versions.

This is a fitting continuation of Issue 1. Just buying the first two issues gives you enough fresh material which you could incorporate into an existing campaign.
