The library ghost says...


That's what I keep telling my brain when it suggests work or sleep... So close to finishing this dang adventure...

Curse of Mistwood in final design phase.

So I have spent most of the last two days assembling Curse of Mistwood. It is a massive task and I'm thinking this adventure is going to go past 100 pages - it's more a campaign than a single adventure.

I've also noted areas where additional art needs to be applied as well as find areas where art I had already put together is not really usable.

If you contacted me regarding play testing, I'll be hooking you up over the next two weeks. Thanks for your patience and hopefully you'll enjoy the experience. Remember if you want to be eligible to playtest and in turn receive a free hard copy of the final adventure, I need you to email me at:

Trolls of Mistwood - Deal of the Day.

Hey everyone, as you may be aware, Curse of Mistwood is in its final stages or writing and editing and will hopefully be available by mid year. Curse of Mistwood is the sequel to The Trolls of Mistwood which is the Deal of the Day in about 3 & 1/2 hours time.

What this means is you can get the PDF for a measly $1.50. To quote Aquaman: "OUTRAGEOUS!"

Click here  to pick up The Trolls of Mistwood for $1.50.

Curse of Mistwood coming soon!.

Playtesters needed soon...

Well, I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for Curse of Mistwood.

At over 31,000 words, it's close to being completed. The huge job of fleshing out Castle Wartaren is nearly finished and I'm currently statting out the occupants.

Del Teigeler has delivered what has to be one of the most detailed isometric castle maps I've ever seen. Here's a small sample of the 11 levels Del completed.

I can't recommend Del enough to other publishers. His contribution to this adventure was fantastic and he stuck with me through a lot of issues during the creation of this castle. Thanks, Del!

So soon you'll be able to take your favorite adventurers into the dread castle, Wartaren. As soon as the first draft is edited and a playtesters PDF is created, I'll be putting out a call for playtesters - feel free to express an interest now - Judges and GMs that run the adventure will receive a free copy of the completed adventure and a mention in the credits.

So whilst your players are there, make sure they say 'Hi!' to the Methuselah! She'll be waiting.

DAMN right, it's back!

Hi all, in case you're unaware, Paul Wolfe of Mystic Bull Games has released an expanded issue 1 of DAMN Magazine.

Click on the link above to check it out. With new articles about DCC, including news and adventures, it's a worthwhile addition to anyone's OSR collection.

And it's chock full of great art (okay, so that's a shameless plug).

Building Blocks

Having developed a love of isometric maps and the frustration of converting 2D to 3D, I am making Photoshop layers of props to use in hand drawn maps - I've also created a 3D spiral staircase that can fit on top of itself and be modular - short cuts that will hopefully pay off.

Here's a sample of the stairs in a rudimentary dungeon - hopefully the hand drawn quality still comes through.

Your Faerie Godmother is in the house

A quick preview of the new patron, Gloriana, Faerie Godmother, from The Revelation of Mulmo.  
Available soon - ish!
Many of the faerie folk take a sidelong interest in human affairs.
Often, this interest lasts but for an encounter, but sometimes a
faerie becomes interested in mortals for their entire lifetimes,
which is still a fleeting interest in the aeons-long existence of the
fae. Such a creature is Gloriana, who sometimes aids Wizards
and Elves, and has become the godmother of several mortal
children - both with, and without, a formal Patron Bond spell.
A mortal with Gloriana as a Faerie Godmother, but who is not
actually magically bonded to her, cannot cast Invoke Patron, but
such a relationship may explain an unusually high Luck score!
Gloriana, when she appears, comes either in the form of a faerie
queen – tall, regal, and impeccably dressed – or in the form of
a wizened old grand-dame hobbling on a black cane. Indeed,
many of her godchildren are unaware that “Grandma Glory” is
a powerful Faerie Lord. For all that Gloriana means well, faerie
folk are most often on the side of Chaos, or Neutral at best, and
her help sometimes backfires as random chaotic elements creep
in. The more powerful the aid she gives, the greater the chance
that something will backfire.

Gloriana’s ceremony must take place in the near vicinity of a
new-born infant. Once the infant is even three months old, it is
too late, and a younger child must be sought out.
