New Kabuki Kaiser product, I think


 Castle Gargantua, $5 and 112 single column, big text pages. Presumably it's like his previous stuff, random tables. I presume it's new, because a) I never noticed it before and b) I just an email from DTRPG about it (since I bought his previous stuff), but on the other hand, it was last updated in May.


    Ride the beanstalk and crawl into the sprawling halls of Castle Gargantua. There awaits the most legendary of giants and the fiercest creatures known to man. Delve further than ever for the great doors of Castle Gargantua have swung open once again, and what lies ahead isn't for the faint-hearted.
    The biggest dungeon ever published by the OSR. A campaign, a massive generator, and a grotesque setting all-in-one.
    A bookmarked PDF & print edition compatible with everything Old School Renaissance

 His previous products, Mad Monks of Kwantoom and Ruins of the Undersomething (City?) were quite good, but convinced me that I really don't like random tables/randomly generated dungeons.

The good people at & Magazine (and of course, the author of it, Tim Stypinski) have published a new level of the ongoing megadungeon, Castle Triskelion

This module features 67 encounter areas, plus new monsters such as the Jousting Wasp and Glutinous Gunge, as well as known monsters like the Talon Goblin and Cadaver Spiders.
Wait! You don’t know what the Jousting Wasp and Glutinous Gunge are???

Free Adventure — The Tower of Horace Sharpcheeks

With a name like that, it must be good. Or silly. One of those.  Anyway, a free download over at the Simple D&D blog

There was a time when the wizard Horace Sharpcheeks overlooked the village of Cresthaven from atop his tower. That was until his tower exploded in a giant green fireball and Horace was never heard from again.
The owner of the Crossed Arms inn claims there is an entrance to a mysterious cavern system below the cellar spewing forth all types of monsters onto the once peaceful country side. The village elders also agree that it’s worth investigating the rumors and have put out a call to all adventurers to cleanse the site of the wizard’s tower and report back their findings. The one thing everyone can agree upon is that goblins have infested the ruins and they must go.
