The Unholy Greyl is a Barbarians of Lemuria adventure by a fellow called G-Man that is being hosted over at Strange Stones. It runs 9 pages and is filled with BoL goodness. The Unholy Greyl has all the classic sword & sorcery qualities and as a result it hits all the right notes for me. It is atmospheric, set in a strange, mysterious locale, there is a lost and degenerate race, greed, slavery, and sorcery strange. The adventure has a definite terminus but the author also gives the GM a lot of flexibility and room to customize or randomize aspects of the scenario. It also includes an adventure seed that could lead the players further into the dar forest.
I don't want to give much more away, so suffice it to say that if you are a fan of BoL then I think you will like this adventure. Oh, and it's free!

I purchased two games today on a whim. I am now the proud owner of Tombs & Terrors and G-Core. I got both from DriveThruRpg in PDF.
I'm a big fan of Simon Washbourne's work so I couldn't pass on Tombs & Terrors. I appears to be his contribution to the world of retro-clones.
G-Core is an update and simplification of the FASERIP system. No chart, apparently. The core rules are superhero focused but there are supplements that expand play into other genres. When I get to reading them I'll pass on what I think.
Oh. Total cost: $5.00
