Barkeep on the Borderlands

This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we chat with W. F. Smith, the mastermind behind Barkeep on the Borderlands! This Ennie Award-winning zine is the product of over thirty collaborators, including 11 guest writers and 17 artists, who worked together to reimagine the classic D&D cavern crawl B2: Keep on the Borderlands as a BAR crawl. You see, in the centuries since the original adventurer’s cleared out the Caves of Chaos, a festival celebrating that achievement — the RAVES of Chaos — came to dominate the town every year. Now the king is sick, a cure is needed and to find it, players must brave the raves and visit the many different pubs of the keep. It’s delightful!
