GM’s Day Sale 2016

It’s the time of year again. The GM’s Day Sale. It’s the one time a year that bribing celebrating your game master is actively encouraged. Well, encouraged more than usual. Another made up holiday graces our calendars although Hallmark hasn’t jumped on board. Yet.

Instead, the gods of commerce encourage you to go buy things for your GM over at DriveThruRPG.com rather than a glitter-doused card with some saccharine half-apology for ignoring every possible plot hook for twelve weeks straight. Of course, more than likely you’re just going to go shopping for yourself and pick up some new player options with the explicit purpose of assassinating your GM’s carefully crafted villain. I’m sure your GM will appreciate that too…

Review of Never Ask Directions

Never Ask Directions - 5EMerric Blackman over at Merric’s Musings took some time to review my sample sidetrek Never Ask Directions that I’ve converted to 5E. The PDF is available through DriveThruRPG as a pay-what-you-want offering. Merric was complimentary but he also pointed out some areas that I agree need some improvement. As with his review of another of my 5E offerings, The Blacksmith’s Burden, I think he’s on the money and the feedback should lead to better products in the future.

Take some time to check out his site as he’s been taking a look at 5E products from a number of publishers. I appreciate the fact that he takes the time for the “little guys” and provides useful critiques that are valuable to consumers and publishers alike.

Head over to Merric’s Musings and see what he had to say about Never Ask Directions.

Positive Review of The Blacksmith’s Burden

Blacksmiths Burden - 5E coverIt’s always nice when someone cares enough to say something about what you’ve written. Better still when they have good things to say. Merric B. took the time to review my short sidetrek adventure, The Blacksmith’s Burden, over on his website. Feedback, all feedback, is a good thing. He had a couple of concerns, which I’m already prepared to address, but had some pretty positive stuff to say. And, while you’re there, he’s got some good stuff going on so browse around a little.

Dungeons & Dragons PDF Recommendations

Just in case you’re last minute like I am, run over to DriveThruRPG and hunt down all of those classic Dungeons & Dragons adventures and sourcebooks and scoop them up at a discount. Wizards of the Coast and DTRPG are celebrating WotC’s two-year anniversary with the site. People had been clamoring for PDFs of Dungeons & Dragons material for a long time and eventually WotC realized that maybe they should get in on that action.

The Eternal Rest in Dungeon World

Dungeon World

Last week I mentioned that my system neutral fantasy game supplement The Eternal Rest is currently on sale over at DriveThruRPG.com on the Drunken Goblin page. I also indicated that I’d been thinking about Dungeon World and adding some moves to further supplement The Eternal Rest. I wrote the PDF around the idea that its hooks could be put to use in any rule set and would leave the mechanics up to the game master.

With Dungeon World on my mind lately, I decided to take my own challenge and bolt on a few straightforward mechanics to The Eternal Rest. Even if you aren’t familiar with Dungeon World (and why not?), each of those moves can still be looted for added hooks to spin off from my PDF. Continue reading
