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

Richard LeBlanc posted this morning that Lulu.com finally responded to his inquiries about why Expanded Petty Gods was yanked and his Lulu.com 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 Lulu.com 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.

Richard LeBlanc over at Save vs. Dragon posted this morning that someone lodged a copyright complaint with Lulu.com in regards to Expanded Petty Gods . And Lulu.com 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 Lulu.com & 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
