Free Small Games and Hacks

From time to time, I like to write small free games and hacks and things. Sometimes they're satirical, sometimes they're silly, and sometimes they're just contest entries. Here are some of the better ones.

The Shab al-Hiri Roach at Hogwarts

An ever-so-slightly hacked re-skin of The Shab al-Hiri Roach by Jason Morningstar. This hack transplants the madcap hijinx of the Roach into the magical world of Hogwarts. Ideal for one-shots and convention games, requires The Shab al-Hiri Roach to play.

Faerie Raed (unfinished)

Written for Game Chef 2014. Faerie Raed is a competitive game for 3 or 4 players in which you will tell a story of the Wild Hunt and their mortal quarry. The Roles you will play are the Quarry, the Hunt Master, and the Druid. If you have a fourth player, they will play the Faerie Queen.
