A group for sharing general suggestions, tips, ideas, and questions for horror-themed role-playing games and settings, including:
- Call of Cthulhu (including D20 CoC)
- the Underdark
- home-brew horror settings
- and more...
Especially welcome here are Keepers/Dungeon Masters who are new to horror games.
I'm currently between games and don't have a campaign to put my story ideas into, so I'm creating this group to share them in.
I prefer to keep things general enough to be used for any system, but I come from a 3rd-Edition/D20 background and may generally refer to those systems. All system mechanics are, however, quite welcome for discussion.
Group for fans of Mystara's Savage Coast aka the Red Steel Setting.
Mystara includes the Savage Coast, a coastal area located in the south central part of the Brun continent, to the south and west of Hule. This part of Mystara is affected by the Red Curse, a sinister enchantment which eventually kills its inhabitants through mutation unless the (fictional) metal cinnabryl is worn in contact with the body. This area was published in its own boxed set entitled Red Steel, and later republished on-line as the Savage Coast. Its swashbuckling flavor is very different from that of the "Known World", closer in atmosphere to that of the Age of Exploration than the fantasy middle-ages/renaissance tone of the Known World. The Savage Coast is complete with gunpowder ("Smokepowder") weaponry.
The specifics of the "Red Curse", which include mutilation of the body and extreme degeneration of physical and mental health, also tend to keep the inhabitants of the Savage Coast within the region, as debilitating effects result if they leave the cursed area.
This is a group dedicated to the Canyon of Thunder Rift based on the original 1990s setting by TSR for use with the original D&D rules.

This is a group for fans of the Hollow World setting, created by Aaron Allston describing Mystara's inner world. Show your love for Azcans, Milennians, Nithians and other civilizations which once existed in the Known World, on the Savage Coast and on other parts of Mystara's surface and which now live on in the Hollow World!
Based upon Gary Gygax's home campaign, The World of Greyhawk folio was published by TSR in 1980 and was one of the first published game worlds for D&D (Dave Arneson's Blackmoor predates it by a couple of months).
Many names that populate the various D&D rules editions had their start in this world. With its long history Greyhawk has a diverse and fanatical following, come join us in our obsession.
This is a group for fans of the old D&D Worlds such as:
Red Steel (aka Savage Coast)
Council of the Wyrms
And many others...
This is a group for fans of the D&D setting that is so old it existed even before the game was called D&D. Whether you prefer the original version of Blackmoor or its latest 4E incarnation, this is the group for you.
