The 131 Preview Review takes on something a wee Bit Different... The Unconventional Dwarf With Dr. Tof Eklund for #MondayBlogs

The 131 Preview Review Presents

    The Unconventional Dwarf is the first in a series of books intended to bring role playing into the 21st century by taking it back to its roots and questioning its fundamental assumptions. The Unconventional Dwarf will show some of the ways to make a game unique, to re-ground fantasy in real-world myths and logical consistency, while also renewing that lost sense of wonder. Each of the Dwarven societies presented herein have familiar traits, but in new contexts and they all overturn certain aspects of Dwarves a you know them in favor of an original and consistent society inspired by everything from Ancient Sparta, Imperial Rome, and the Amazons to cave-diving, celebrity culture, and even the naked mole rat. Whether looking for a concept for the next character, working on developing a world for the next session, seeking inspiration for a game design project, or simply looking for a good read, it is our hope that these pages will inspire, amuse and maybe challenge you. 



     Well That should wet the palette.....
