What's On My Gaming Table?

Al over at Beyond the Black Gate asked what is on your gaming table. So here is what is on mine. I have two tables going, one for playing and one for working on adventures.

Players Table

Swords & Wizardry, Core Rule by Matt Finch

Supplement VI: The Majestic Wilderlands by Robert S. Conley

1st Edition DMG by Gary Gygax

We continue to play on Monday Nights fairly regular and my elf, Monteblank reached 9th level last night. I keep the 1st Edition DMG handy because of some of the magic items we get I need to refer to in there. I'm old. I've forgotten.

Publisher Table

Swords & Wizardry, Core Rule by Matt Finch

S&W Monster Book by Matt Finch, by the way if you don't have this book get it. I think it's the best monster manual out there. There is something I like a lot about its simplicity.

Adventure Design Deskbook by, hmm I wonder who it could be, oh that's right, Matt Finch

Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe by Expeditious Retreat Press

There is large a mixture of others that include Labyrinth Lord, HackMaster, Pathfinder, Pendragon, AD&D and GURPS. I'm not afraid to draw in inspiration or help from anywhere. I have books on medieval villages, cities, castles, visions and times. I'm not afraid to use them. So you can see my gaming table is always a fricking mess.


  1. That's interesting. :)

    We're boring.
    --I only have my slim spiral-bound rules book and the Spectral Index page in a sheet protector.
    ---My Players only need their character control record and their dice.

    Although I did recently consult the DMG1e's Secondary Skill section for an adventure I'm writing. :)

  2. Nice to see A Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe at the table. Put a smile on my face. :)

  3. TS> Yeah I make a mess when I am making stuff. When I play I like the table clear, but its a battle I don't often win.

    jgb> For my money Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe is one of the best supplements. I was rereading is again this past week and appreciate all the great information and the layout of the information is excellent. I bought it on PDF, thought it was great then bought the print copy. I'm very glad to have it on my table.
