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...

Hello Thick Skullers! Couple of quick updates for you all. D.A.M.N Magazine is back! DAMN (or the Dccrpg Adventure Magazine and News) is back in PDF and print. Paul Wolfe has done a great job acquiring the rights to reprint the original issue and has augmented with some new material.

An article providing judges a house rule option for making extreme spellburn more costly in terms of the potential effects the wizard’s health beyond the...

Thanks for your support on Alzheimer’s walk

Hello you generous Thick Skullers! I wanted to send a thank you to everyone who supported me in my efforts for the Alzheimer’s walk. In the end I had about 20 people contribute and raised $450! I was pleasantly surprised at how much participation there was and was pleased to connect with some many people in the community. While the promotion is now closed, I look forward to trying this again next year and hope to see many of you at the game table soon. Thanks! Stephen

Frawgs back in stock—last chance for Larvik

Hello Thickskullers! Good news! After being unavailable for several months, I’ve re-loaded the distribution channel with fresh copies of Attack of the Frawgs and The Haunting of Larvik Island so those two products are once again orderable from places like the ever-loyal FRPGames.com. And in a bittersweet development, the shipment I sent them was my last copies of The Haunting of Larvik Island. As of this writing, I have no plans to re-print any copies so once those copies are gone they’ll probably stay gone until the day I eventually finish...

OneBookShelf Content Policy – One Year Later

Posted by on 10:40 pm in Publishing | 0 comments

TL;DR Summary: One year after OneBookShelf implements new content policy, zero books have been banned. Approximately one year ago, the role-playing game PDF behemoth OneBookShelf—the parent company of DriveThruRPG.com, RPGNow.com, DNDClassics.com and other related sites—implemented a new Offensive Content Policy. While OBS had banned one title in the past (the GamerGate card game), the title that catalyzed OBS into clarifying their offensive content policy was Tournament of Rapists – a d20 Modern supplement. You can read the full policy...
