"Legend of Boggy Creek" the RPG

Recently I was reading the Pathfinder "Game Mastery Guide". (Excellent Book BTW) In the back, under references the Movie "the Legend of Boggy Creek" was listed. I remember going to see this in the theatre with my Dad. No, there wasn't much to do in 1972. I was scared shitless! I think the fact that this was a docu-drama lent it an air of believability.
Had this film not been made I'm sure life as we know it would pretty much be the same. But, I love this movie because of it's flaws, and because of what it does right. I'm curious to know how many of us are influenced by such "cheesy" cinema. Certainly one of my favorite encounters was based on a terrible Hercules Movie from the 50's.

How about you?

"The Legend of Boggy Creek" is available on Netflix.

Haunted Hovel: FREE Pathfinder Encounter

Last year I wrote a Harrowing Haunts encounter for Kobold Quarterly.

Today they added two new Haunts to the Encounter, by Maurice De Mare.

This is tailor made for any spooky forest encounter, especially the Old Margreave!
Also, I found a sweet (FREE) Papercraft Hovel model over at Fantasy Cutouts!

This, plus some spooky roleplaying is more than enough to entertain your group for a session. Maybe you can make a fire and toast up some smores. It's all FREE, what's better than that on a snowy Tuesday! Oh yeah, get your FREE copy of Kobold Quarterly issue #11.

Free Kobold Quarterly for Download!

Anyone who's read this blog knows that I'm a huge Fanboy for Kobold Quarterly and Open Design. Ever wonder how it started. No, well I'm telling you anyway. I saw a link on RPG Bloggers for a free RPG magazine. Soon I was reading their Webbie every day and bugging my FLGS to carry the Magazine.
