Future Releases on DrivethruRPG

I’ve made the decision to put the recent 2-page spreads I’ve made on my DrivethruRPG publisher account, accessible at the link below:

https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/11679/Red-Dice-Diaries

I’ve set them up with a suggested price of £0.50, but they’re pay want you want, you’re more than welcome to grab them for free, but if you fancy throwing me a few pennies, you can do so using DrivethruRPG.

The three I have done so far will still be available on the blog, however any future booklets I create will be put on DrivethruRPG and linked in the blog.

Coinage in Our Smoke & Snow Game

As some of you may be aware, I’m going to be starting an OSE game in the next month (session 0 scheduled for the week after next as of time of writing), the game is going to be loosely based on the Colonial America time period and set in a New World of sub-arctic temperatures (think Northern Canada). Amongst the various things I’ve been considering (rules for blackpowder firearms, hex-crawls, etc) I’ve also been thinking about coinage. I’d love to be able to have something a bit more flavourful in our game but don’t want it to make things too difficult for the players or to have to draw up new cost lists for things.

Our Scum & Villainy Inspired Downtime & Content Generator for Midderlands

I’ve spoken in a couple of recent episodes of our podcast about the DT and Content Generation system that myself and Johannes Paavola adapted from Scum & Villainy for use in our ICRPG Midderlands game:

I wrote up the notes on this after our discussion in a form that I’ve been using for a couple of sessions in the Midderlands campaign, it’s not perfect but I wanted to share it here in-case anyone was interested:

You can see the sessions that we’ve played thus far using this system on our Youtube channel:

Roleplay Will Eat Itself

The title of this article is intended to be a tongue-in-cheek reference, based around the name of the band Pop Will Eat Itself, I am not seriously suggesting that recent scandals are going to destroy roleplaying or anything needlessly dramatic like that. However, it has been pointed out to me that the humour may not have translated well in text so I thought I’d state it here explicitly. Thanks to Adam Ness for pointing this out.

I’ve just been reading a post on Tenkar’s Tavern (great site, as I’m sure you all know), and it seems that the RP community (and the old school community in particular) continues in it’s almost frantic attempts to tear itself apart in flurries of accusations, recriminations and censorship. I don’t normally comment on such things–since I prefer to put my efforts into producing stuff and running games–but there has been so much of this sort of stuff flying around recently that I felt compelled to write this post. This is most likely going to be my one and only comment on this.
