I'm jumping in to participate in the OSR September of Short Adventures thing and will be posting 25 short adventure stubs. Each one will feature a horror themed encounter with a unique 'monster'.
Some months back I mentioned that one of the things I'd like to work on is a Weird Horror themed sandbox setting; I wanted to adapt some of the Chaosium Lovecraft Country stuff to D&D. Cranking out 25 short horror encounters should give me a nice push in that direction (though to be fair - a lot of these will be general horror, not purely Lovecraft-themed). If I like how some of them turn out, I could see elaborating them with stats and putting them in a sandbox setting. The material should be system neutral, though I'll be writing it with the LOTFP assumptions in mind - post-Medieval European.
Integrating a new adopted son into our family has eaten up a lot of computer time for learning new creative tools (ie, good mapping programs) so the Black City has stalled temporarily; this will keep me writing the good stuff in the meantime.
My brainstorming tables are ready to go, including my first D30 table; I'll post them when I get the chance and proudly join the Order of the D30.
First trip into terror will be tonight!
