Do Suzi and I have the Plague? Sure Feels Like It....

*cough* *hack* *wheeze*

To celebrate our first shared sickness since Suzi became a Nurse Practitioner, I've decided to share our Plague with my happy readers. So I've put Plague up for sale for just a buck. It's a 4e products, but there's plenty of good stuff in there for anyone, especially for just a buck.

The Goremont Grim (new introduction)

The Goremont Grim is an ancient portal between dimensions, universes, and planes. In the beginning, when the first split of reality occurred, the Grim facilitated travel between the two new realities. When reality split again, the Grim expanded, and at each successive split the Grim exponentially grew larger and more complex. After millennia, the Grim itself became a reality of its own: the reality with links to all of the other dimensions.

As travelers walked the Grim Path their consciousness imprinted upon the new reality. The travellers’ multitudinous concepts of the underworld, of nightmares, and of dungeons stayed behind and expanded the Grim. It is these ideas that twisted the passages of the Grim from the straight and direct ways is bore for millennia into the never-ending maze that is the Goremont Grim today. Without the Walkers, the Grim would be staid, safe, boring.

After the twisting, the Grim itself gained sentience (of a sorts) and educated itself upon the consciousness of those what walked within.  It can now plan, think, create and is worshiped as a god in hundreds of worlds.

The goal of the Grim, or even if it has one, is unknown. Some speculate that it now seeks dominion over the multiverse, others that it merely seeks death from a senseless and eternal existence.

50% Off Sale on all Advanced Adventures!

As some of you know, Suzi and I have recently purchased a new house and, after paying for a new roof, we've decided to go whole-hog and remodel/refresh the interior - paint, flooring, countertops, toilets, appliances, etc... This means I need lots 'o money. You have money, so let's work something out. :-)

All of our OSRIC (1e) modules are on sale for 50% off until August 8th, and two of them (#2 and #3) are only $2 each!

Just think of your purchase as a weird way of getting me some new wall plates, or a crown molding fix, or some nice bullnose kitchen tile...

Geological Wednesday - Pingos

I consider myself decently versed in geological terms, but pingos are something that I'd never heard about until today. Quite interesting and something that I should add into an adventure occurring in the far north.

Advanced Adventures #21: The Obsidian Sands of Sycrates is now a Pay What You Want PDF

I've just put AA#21: The Obsidian Sands of Sycrates up at OBS as a Pay What you Want PDF. I thought I should test out this new method of commerce and see how it turns out. It's for 6-10 players of 4-7 level.

The Obsidian Sands of Sycrates is our worst selling Advanced Adventure. Which is doubly annoying for me, as I'm the author (and yeah, the ego really loves being my own worst-seller, hah!) and the guy who organized it to be ran as a three table tournament module at Gen Con 2011 - where a lot of fun was had at three tables with 10 players each. IMO, it's a really good module that I think has just been overlooked because of its subject matter and tournament history. It has 10 pre-gens, a scoring system, and should be able to be played (by a well-organized group) in a single 4 hour period. Not so well-organized groups should be able to do it in a maximum of 8 hours, I'd guess.

Bryce Lynch has a good review of the mod over at tenfootpole, you can read over that if you'd like. Warning: there's a bit of a spoiler in the last paragraph, but if you're planning to run the mod that's not an issue.

My New Social Media Policy

So here's my decision to try and improve my online social experience. I'm going to relate to everyone in a sincere, kind, and conscientious manner from here on out. If I find myself undesirous to relate to someone in that manner (because I'd rather just verbally smack at them), they'll get uncircled and/or blocked (after I've felt that need several times).

If any of you find me being a jerk online from here on out, please just point it out to me and remind me that I want to be better than that. My e-mail is

I've just gotten out of good conservation with someone that I disagree with and am enjoying this feeling of having a conversation with differing opinions without the desire to smack the other person. I'm going to aim for that experience in my online social world. I'm done with the the other.

For about 4 years now she's been going to school while I ran XRP. This week she's finally seen the payoff for all her effort and struggle.

Congrats Suzi Yee, FNP-C!

Call for Manuscripts

Been a while since I made a general call for manuscripts. I'm looking for OSRIC modules for our Advanced Adventures line and for Pathfinder adventures for our 1-on-1 Adventures line. Both have a word limit of 12k (can be bumped up to 16k if necessary) and pay $0.01 per word upon acceptance of the manuscript. OSRIC is for a full-sized OSR group (6-10 players) while 1-on-1 is for only a single player and a GM.

If you've never published anything before, don't worry, I honestly believe every long-term GM has at least one good publishable adventure within them and I'm glad to help bring them to the public. Our hobby should be a shared hobby.

If you want to pitch me an idea, email me at
