Light City - The Silver Lady

The Silver Lady

The folks of Light City are pretty open minded and the fact the host of the top rated local television show is from Venus is a testament to that. The beautiful Silver Lady, or Sil as she's known in Light City, is the most popular anchor in the tri-state area and her talk show, Silver, is watched by all.

The Silver Lady claims that Venus is a planet of peace and love, without weapons of war. Unknown to all, she's actually an agent of the Venusian government and the vanguard of a Venusian invasion. Recently though her attitude about her new home has changed and she has grown to like Earth the way it is. Soon her loyalties might be tested.

Real Name: Unknown
First Appearance: Space Adventures #42 (October 1961)
AC 9 [10]      HD: 2+1    Attacks: Punch (1) Move: 12

The Silver Lady can can Charm Person an infinite number times per day but this can only affect living human men. She has limited telepathy and can communicate mentally with anyone within 30'. The Silver Lady can perform feats of mass hypnosis and suggestion over the air. Men in particular are susceptible to her mental abilities.

Double Mayhem Adventures Kickstarter

Missed out on +Mark Taormino's previous Kickstarters? Well now you have a chance to get updated versions of the first two Maximum Mayhem Dungeon adventures with his Double Mayhem Adventures Kickstarter. The major difference between the original printings and these is that the new versions you get through the Kickstarter feature updated artwork. Of the previewed pieces I have to say that my favourite is the updated Pinball Wizard from Maximum Mayhem Dungeons 2. The original was good, but the update is superb. I love the added detail and background.

The Hanging Coffins of the Vampire Queen and The Secret Machines of the Star Spawn are both a blast. If you want to add some crazy fun adventures to you collection, consider backing this project.

Succubus Sunday - Me! Me! Me!

Not going to go into the actual meaning behind these videos and things, but I've had the damn song stuck in my head for days and the video definitely depicts some succubus-like ladies.

Also if you want a cosplay version of the first part, here you go.

Winkies and Piranosaurs (Swords & Wizardry Light)

First Appearance: Space Adventures # 8 (Sept. 1953)
AC 9 [10]      HD: 1    Attacks: Bite (1d3) Move: 12

Winkies are adorable little quadrupeds that make excellent pets. Well they make great pets unless their population is left unchecked and they keep breeding. In great numbers winkies turn aggressive and can decimate entire colonies.

First Appearance: Space Adventures # 8 (Sept. 1953)

Piranosuar are flesh eating dinosaur like creatures native to asteroid known as Pharisees. Despite their sharp teeth and claws they aren't overly aggressive (unless someone disturbs their meal).

More Kirby Krackle

It's funny, just a few hours after I post Kirby Krackle videos they post another one. Enjoy their summer tribute, X-Men Pool Party.

Supers Inspiration - Kirby Krackle Edition

If you need some tunes to listen to while working on supers stuff, I highly recommend nerd rockers, Kirby Krackle.

October Project Announcement

I have two fun horror themed projects I'll be dropping on OBS next month. Let me know what you think of them in the comments.

Slashers and Victims Light
I had originally planned on doing a fully fleshed out White Box slasher game called Camp White Box. I think the name is great, but as several friends have pointed out, that's a lot of work for a game that will probably be used for one shots. I didn't let it fully die though (because nothing ever really dies). It will be in a format like the main Swords & Wizardry Light rules, only two pages when printed out. You'll need the core rules to play. There will only be one class, though characters can choose from perks and drawbacks to customize them. There will also be new setting specific equipment, rules about fear saves, and a selection of slashers, bystanders, and a few animals that haven't been covered in Light or Tome of Horrors Light. I've been working for the past few weeks on this and the first draft is done. I've let a couple of folks look at it and they liked it. It will drop on Friday the 13th.
Public Domain Monster Matinee 
(working title)
Honestly this one just came to me tonight while I was brainstorming for another Light City post. +Jonathan Linneman and I have done some fun stuff with public domain superheros, why not use other fun stuff in the public domain. My thoughts for this one is that I'll give a brief (probably paragraph description of the movie) and then stat out some npc's and monsters from them. Since I love Swords & Wizardry Light, that's what I'm going to use for this one too. That means the contents can be used for traditional Swords & Wizardry Light, Light City, and Slashers and Victims Light. Here are the movies I'm probably going to draw from:  White Zombie, The Devil Bat, Night of the Living Dead, Hunchback of Notre Dame (Universal), Indestructible Man, The Last Man on Earth, The Phantom of the Opera (Universal), Little Shop of Horrors (Corman), Teenagers from Outer Space, and Manos: Hands of Fate. I'm not sure of the release date, but it will be on or before Halloween.
