Bruno's Demise: new blog

     Bruno's Demise is a new blog with a Holmes/B/X/LL/1E focus. Bruno, of course, is the fighter from the Blue Book who defeats a goblin but then dies a horrible death from spider poison. The blog header illustrates this scene (I believe the art is by the blogger).

     The author is 3d6 (aka The Landlord), also a member at OD&D Discussion forums. His website, The Golden Ball Inn, has three adventures available for 1st level LL characters, and he put together a set of rules for Holmes-like Labyrinth Lord.

     A few days ago in a post titled Centipede Taxonomy he explored the implications of the description of Giant Centipedes in Holmes and Moldvay, complete with a wonderful mini-dungeon. Check it out.


  1. Thanks for the pointer. Looks like a great start to a blog.

  2. Thank you Zenopus! Greatly appreciate the support and kind words! And thanks for maintaining your great, inspirational blog about the greatest version (by a hair), the one I started with.

    Bruno's Demise will focus - as you say - on D&D mostly after 0e and before 2e, as well as on artists, fantasy/adventure films, comics, fiction...

    Yep, I drew the header; I’m a very amateur artist, and my art will continue to appear on the blog too.

    Honored to have you post about my blog!


    1. You're welcome. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.
