Happy 2020 and 30 Days of Colonial Blackpowder

A Happy New Year to you all, as we kick off 2020 with Season 3 of the Red Dice Diaries Anchorcast we’re Overjoyed to See RPGs, I’m excited to talk about my plans for creating a Colonial Blackpowder D&D campaign setting in 2020.

This idea was inspired by ChicagoWiz’s excellent podcast and blog: https://chgowiz-games.blogspot.com/

I also talk about the workbook 30 Days of Worldbuilding written by Angeline Trevena.

The book is available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Days-Worldbuilding-Step-Step-Fictional/dp/1677313129
