Revised & Expanded Petty Gods is Back in Print!

  Good news! I just discovered that Richard LeBlanc has re-uploaded Revised & Expanded Petty Gods to Lulu. It's only available as a case-wrapped hardback and is currently priced at $21.76 (which is the "at cost" price, which is what Lulu charges creators to print such a project). Of course, shipping and handling are extra.  As one of the named co-editors and one of the writers with the most credits in the tome, I am extremely happy to see this available for purchase once again.

Ablution: A Dungeon Poem

This is in response to Patrick Stuart's dungeon poem post way back in February. What can I say? I'm slow. Better ones by better writers are posted here . Map by Dyson Logos. Original located here . Ablution: A Dungeon Poem 1. Three darknesses sulk in sorrow telling tales that end in silence: one lies, one whispers, one speaks in tongues— the delicacy of livers draws them near. 2. An old man withers, scrawls notes on walls in words he does not know; here, bones go to die. 3. Taste each barrel & beware the order or despair; colors run, sounds unwind, flesh & bone in stone entwine. 4. What you build will fail: the only out is through yet within the pit the ghasts await your warm embrace. 5. Shallows lap upon rocks like dogs at sup & hunger to grind flesh between pebbled teeth; feed them & learn answers to questions witches dare not ask. 6. A tease, a taunt, a shimmering— a treasure for the taking if takers be so bold to dare the darkened waters & what the wate

A Surprising Expanded Petty Gods Update

Richard LeBlanc posted this morning that finally responded to his inquiries about why Expanded Petty Gods was yanked and his account closed without warning. I encourage you to go read his post and be as flabbergasted as I was at what happened. The TL;DR is that Expanded Petty Gods will soon be available again after Richard sets up a separate account for the ORC imprint, which is the "official" publisher of the book. Still, I would be wary of using if I were you, given that it was damn near impossible for Richard to get ahold of an actual human being to resolve this issue.

A Disappointing Update on Expanded Petty Gods

Richard LeBlanc over at Save vs. Dragon posted this morning that someone lodged a copyright complaint with in regards to Expanded Petty Gods . And deleted his account, because of course they did. The project was distributed as a gift to the community and was made available as a free PDF or at-cost in print from & DriveThruRPG; it made for a hefty and gorgeous hardback. But now, as a preemptive measure, Richard has pulled EPG from DriveThruRPG. As a result, there is no longer an official channel to download the PDF or order print copies.  While I am saddened that such a tremendous community project is no longer available in print, there are plenty of PDF copies floating around the internet. I'm not going to point you to those places, though; let's just say Google is your friend. And to whomever it was that lodged the copyright complaint, I hope you are happy with yourself for depriving the DIY gaming community of one of the most massive projects

F72.33: Unlicensed Daycare Facility: A Playset for Flammable Hospital

Ever heard of Flammable Hospital ? It's an underground  Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rules mod/setting booklet about shenanigans at a hospital that is constantly on fire. The aesthetic harkens back to the Xerox & mimeograph days of underground zine distribution. It's definitely NSFW & batshit crazy gonzo. It requires a seasoned GM who is used to winging it because Flammable Hospital isn't playable on its own. The booklet is nothing but flavorful random tables you use to create a nonsensical adventure on the fly. It's great fun to play over video chat. And it's hard as heck to get your hands on a copy. I haven't even seen scans of this bad boy on the 'chans & torrent sites. But I happen to have a hard copy, given to me by a close confidant from the G+ days. There are precious few supplements to this supplement floating around the blogosphere. Try to track down a copy of Abuse of Antacids if you can; it is well worth the trouble. Following the DIY
