Instructional Character Sheet!

hblf, lfneJason L Blair09 January 2018

Big thanks to brother-in-name Jason Alexander for crafting this instructional character sheet for his players at this Saturday’s MidWinter Con–and for agreeing to let me post it here on LittleFears.com.

The Little Fears community continues to delight and surprise. Thank you all so much for continuing to support and enthusiasm for Little Fears (which turns 17! this year) and for its younger sibling, Nightmare Edition, who turns 9.

Man. I’m old.


Here’s a link to the sheet! Thanks again, Jason!

Clubhouse News: Tangles the Monster

lfneJason L Blair04 November 2013

Frequent Protodimension editor (and contributor) Tad Kelson adds another monster to the Little Fears mythos!

Tangles is a Regular Monster for use with your Little Fears Nightmare Edition games. Check out this description:

All those times your mother brushes your hair and pulls it, tearing out a tangle. Then
she throws that hair away in the trash. Well at night Tangles comes around and sifts in
your trash and pulls out the hair and slowly braids it into its own body. All those children,
all their hair, all that innocence pulled out by their roots and woven into something that
slithers along the floorboards making its way to the trash can, just to pick out their tangles
and turn it into its own body.

Wonderful. Check out the full write-up in the latest issue of Protodimension, available in PDF right here.

Thanks, Tad, for the creation! Really well done.

Clubhouse News: “The Tithe”

lfneJason L Blair16 October 2013

Hey folks, I’m starting a new segment here on LittleFears.com to highlight material created by fans of the game. To kick it off, I want to spotlight Giant in the Playground forum user RobD’s original episode “The Tithe.” The episode is set up just like a Campfire Tale so anyone familiar with those should feel right at home. Set in the late 80s, the episode features a group of faeries who become very unhappy when their yearly share of a farming community’s crops is denied to them. Here’s the premise, as posted by Rob:

A typical weekend at the end of this years harvest season takes a strange turn as mysterious things begin to happen: unlikely accidents, things going missing, and increasingly vicious pranks spreading across town are set to upend the sleepy town of Pine Crest.

It seems like a lot of fun and I encourage everyone to check it out. And if anyone has any fan material posted online, let me know so I can tell others! If you have stuff but don’t have a place to host it, send it to me and I’ll put it up (with proper credit, of course).

LFNE Scenario in Protodimension #9

lfneJason L Blair11 August 2011

The good folks at Protodimension Magazine have just put out the ninth issue of their PDF periodical that supports some of the finest horror roleplaying game there are. I’m honored they count my own Little Fears in the company of Dark Conspiracy*, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, and other genre classics, and even more honored they’ve included a new scenario for Little Fears Nightmare Edition in their latest issue that hit digital shelves just last night.

Tad Kelson’s “Some Yards” begins as a haunted house scenario but soon turns into much more. It all starts when a friend of the group goes missing and ends with, well, that’d be cheating.

The latest issue of Protodimension boasts an impressive 94 pages of horror scenarios, gear, opinion, fiction, poetry—even a standalone RPG! You can grab your own copy right here. The Little Fears scenario begins on page 72 but you’ll want to check out the rest of the magazine after you savor that.

Thanks again to Norm, Lee, Tad, and everyone else involved with Protodimension. Here’s to many more issues!

*And so y’know, Dark Conspiracy 3rd Edition is due out soon!

Little Gears at GenCon

lfneJason L Blair03 May 2011

You read that right.

An outfit called Regret Games runs a series they call “saga games” at conventions and this year they’re running steampunk variants of a bunch of games, including Dogs in the Vineyard and Misspent Youth. My own 2001 release Little Fears is included in that batch. Here’s a snippet of the event description:

The child-engineers of the Undercity agree that the Overcity must be falling apart, what with all the broken pipes, ruptured valves and, worst of all, the coal lines exploding at random. Any Undercity kid can tell you the stories – the warnings – that if you don’t clean your face before you sleep, especially around your eyes, they will take you. If you’re lucky, you’ll come back in a day or two, walking like a zombie and seeing the Undercity through new, coal-blackened eyes, and you won’t remember anything you once were. If you’re unlucky, well… that’s a story best left untold.

All the games take place inside the same world but are standalone adventures. So you can play event to hear one part of the story, or play all to get the big picture.

Sounds like fun to me.

If you’re going to be at GenCon 2011, check out their event schedule here.

LFNE Scenario in Protodimension #6

downloads, lfneJason L Blair29 November 2010

The Fall 2010 issue of Protodimension Magazine is out and it features a very cool scenario for Little Fears Nightmare Edition called “The Truth about Mr. Taylor.” Written by Managing Editor Norm Fenlason, this “cul-de-sac adventure” takes players on a curious trip around the neighborhood and introduces an out-of-this-world monster I think your group will enjoy.

You can download the PDF of Protodimension Magazine #6 here. The LFNE scenario starts on page 58 but the rest of the magazine is no slouch either. If Issue 6 piques your interest, the entire back catalog is available for download as well. Check it out, there’s lots of good stuff in those pages (including material for the original Little Fears, if you’re so inclined).

Big thanks to Norm and the rest of the Protodimension team for their support of Little Fears Nightmare Edition. Protodimension is a good group of guys who support a lot of great horror and dark fantasy systems, both old and new. I look forward to what they cook up next.
