Pickup playtest draft of new upcoming DCC adventure with a $5 Walk to End Alzheimer’s donation

I’m participating once again in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s event on Saturday Oct 14, 2017. Both of my grandmothers suffered from dementia, so it’s a cause I believe in. This year I’m trying something new. To show some appreciation to folks who donate at least $5 between now and Saturday Oct 14 using the link on my page, I’ll send a playtest copy of my upcoming DCCRPG western, The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner. What’s a playtest copy you ask? It is effectively just a Word file with a scan of my hand drawn maps. It has no...

Announcing the Frawgs Turns 5 Contest Winners!

First, let me thank you all again for helping make the last 5 years as a DCC publisher fun and memorable.

I had a blast reading everyone’s posts, so thank you very much for your comments.

Frawgs Turns 5 Birthday Giveaway

It was on June 22, 2012, when my first DCC adventure Attack of the Frawgs was released in PDF form. I’d written Frawgs during the summer of 2012 against the beta rules of a game which had yet to be released called Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG. Little did I know then how popular the DCC RPG system was to become. Now, five years later, the DCC RPG community has become a bit like my second family. Everyone from Joseph Goodman himself, to the other DCC authors (both on GG staff and the 3rd-party publishers), as well as everyone in the Google Plus...

Floating Oasis of the Ascended God and The Lairs of Lost Agharta

With all the photos, merriment, and high-profile Kickstarter announcements that were made during GaryCon 2017, a couple of projects that I contributed to may have gone under the radar. Floating Oasis of the Ascended God In this first level adventure, the players travel to the mysterious Floating Oasis where they must navigate the perilous cloud-caverns while facing off against a dangerously-indifferent deity. Floating Oasis of the Ascended God is a new mini-adventure I’ve written which has been included in the reprint of Harley...

GaryCon 2017 report

Hello Thick Skullers! So I’ve returned from the beautiful Grand Geneva Resort where I’ve finally attended my first Gary Con. The entire experience was amazing. I finally got a chance to meet so many of my DCC RPG family, many of which I’d become good friends with despite only ever interacting via Google Plus and the interwebs. I know by making lists, you always forget one or two important people, but off the top of my head, I know I was able to break bread and/or do some gaming with folks likeAdam Muszkiewicz, David Baity,...

Coming Soon: The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner

So, I finally finished the Alpha draft of my latest adventure, The Last Will and Testament of Obediah Felkner. It is a new first-level DCC RPG adventure, but it takes place in the Old West. Here’s my first draft of the blurb which will likely change as it goes through playtest: 1869 California. On a cool evening in the town of Los Castores, a lawyer summons a group of five strangers into his office. Obediah Felkner, a prominent resident and landowner, has recently passed away, and surprisingly the five strangers have been named his...
