On the Zenopus Archives, I highlight the newest episode of the long-running Fear of a Black Dragon OSR/FRPG podcast, which is dedicated to the Tower of Zenopus, the sample dungeon from the Holmes Basic D&D rulebook.
It's Holmes Day 2021! J. Eric Holmes was born on this day, 91 years ago. Over on the Zenopus Archives blog, I've got a "new" photo of Holmes, plus my "Holmesian Highlights" of the past year: Holmes Day 2021
On the blog, I am posting notes on running the Ruined Tower of Zenopus using old school D&D. The first post covers pages 1-5, the bulk of which is stats for my customized Wandering Monster table. Notes are written up for Holmes Ref (Holmes Basic + OD&D) but should be suitable for any old D&D.
