Adventures on Tape 1 – The Bloodsoaked Boudoir of Velkis the Vile, by Nick LS Whelan

Trying something new here. I’ve always thought it would be neat to extend Blogs on Tape to cover long-form works published in the OSR. Stuff like adventure modules, setting material, rules supplements, etcetera. Of course, there are logistical issues to consider, such as the length & difficulty of production, as well as any strain the larger files might place on my hosting. Additionally, I suspect it will be much more difficult to get material, since these are typically the sorts of productions that people want to sell. Nobody likes it when people start giving away their product for free.

For this experiment, I skirted both issues by picking “The Bloodsoaked Boudoir of Velkis the Vile.” I rarely deny myself permission to use my own work, so that solved one problem. The other was aided by the fact that Velkis is almost embarrassingly short. At 9 pages, it was certainly longer than anything else I’ve read up to this point, and I think I was able to get a decent turnaround time on making it. I doubt I’ll be reading Veins of the Earth anytime soon, but if someone wanted to give me permission to read something on the order of Death Frost Doom or Megadungeon, I think I could do that.
