In Response to the Latest Backers-Only Update for Brave Halfling's Appendix N Kickstarter

First, read this if you are a backer of said project:

I posted the following comment/rant:

Wait. You've only shipped print product to people in the $200 and $100 category? That's what . . .23 total shipments, according to the handy backers sidebar over there on the right of the screen. 23 print packages. In a year. So 549 of us are still sitting here twiddling our thumbs, listening to you dig yourself another hole with more promises.

Why do those who pledged more get first dibs? They might get MORE in their shipments, but why are they getting firsts? Especially when those of us who ponied up extra shipping back in October still have nothing but PDFs to show for it?

Nothing in the reward descriptions says anything about getting priority fulfillment over the rest of us shlubs down in the $5 to $51 categories--which make up the bulk of the backers of the project.

You know, I&#…

A Shout Out To All The Geek Girls

Check Out This Post-Apocalyptic Short Film + Web Series!

Check it:



Ok, to be honest, the fight scenes are too staged and sucky in the film but wait . . . go watch the series that they made after they made the film:

Scavengers of the Scarlet Wastes

Not bad for some semi-pro film making! Hits just the right Gamma World/Fallout/Mutant Future/Savage Afterworld vibe!

Barbarian Prince!

Remember Barbarian Prince?

Sure, the game is now available for free for you to print and assemble.

But why print and assemble the old, ugly version? Some dude (Todd Johnson, who goes by dumarest123 over at Boardgamegeek.com) has done a whole new graphic design job on the old game and put up his files for free! Check it out!

And then, if you want to download them, you can grab all the files at once from my Dropbox account.

TSR & WotC Fast-Plays

Over on one of the RPG forums I frequent, someone inquired about the D&D Fast-Plays that TSR/WotC has released over the years.

Here are all the ones for D&D, Alternity, and d20 Star Wars I've been able to find. Let me know if I'm forgetting one.

Dungeons & Dragons (various editions)
Wrath of the Minotaur (2e)
Eye of the Wyvern (2e)
Fast-Play from Dragon Magazine 251 (2e)
AD&D Fast Play (2e)
(note: These four share the same introductory adventure "The Ruined Tower" and include the exact same set of pre-gens. The AD&D Fast Play and Fast Play from Dragon Magazine 251 both stop after the intro adventure. WotM and EotW present 4 additional pre-gens and each contains 1 additional adventure that complement each other. WotM is a dungeon adventure; EotW is a wilderness adventure.)

Crypt of the Smoke Dragon (2e)
Diablo II Fast Play (2e)

Caves of Shadow (3e; included in the d20 System Dice package)

The Dungeons & Dragon Movie Fast Play (3e) entitled "The Se…

3 Things

1. If anyone has a copy of the god-awful Dungeons & Dragons movie from 2000 starring Jeremy Irons (this craptastic movie here), please pop that sucker in your computer and send me a copy of the D&D Fast-Play Game PDF on the DVD-ROM partition. It's called "The Sewers of Sumdall" or somesuch. It's the only Fast-Play missing from my collection.
(Damn, that was fast!)


2. Finally received Plant MF in the mail this weekend. Wow. Oh Wow.

3. Check out this image dump for some Planet MF inspiration (NSFW). This isn't mine, but a site run by a U.K. band called Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats.

BONUS VIDEO:
 "I'll Cut You Down" by the aforementioned Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats:


Planet MF Soundtrack

While I'm waiting for a copy of Planet Motherf***er to arrive, I noticed that alotoffolkshave put together soundtracks.

So, here's mine [LINK REMOVED]. This is a link to a zip file in my Dropbox. It'll only be active for a week or so, so grab it while you can. The file contains 33 AAC and mp3 files of various sounds from my music collection that I find somewhat appropriate for the setting. Play 'em in order for the best experience or totally ignore me and hit the shuffle button.

Also, for more heavy sounds that might make good sonic accompaniment to this setting, check out Stonerobixxx's monthly compilations and their "best of 2012" collections. If you have trouble downloading any of Stonerobixxx's compilations, let me know and I'll try to get it you via other means, as I have them all in 128k AAC format so I can squeeze as many as possible on my iPod Shuffle.
