A Trio of Rules

Today on StufferShack I encourage you to build your own rules system despite some internet negativity that might say otherwise.

Kobold Press has Part 2 of my Transition Scene Hack.

And then on RPG Circus we Interview with James Winfield about 1d4Con and Starting Conventions, House Rules, The Good the Bad and the Ugly and take some Listener Feedback



Traders & Crafstmen

Urban Dressing: Traders & Craftsmen is now available for download from DriveThruRPG. If you were a fan of Market Stalls, fear not, this PDF has all new content with 100 store descriptions, 100 services, new hooks, opportunities and an NPC generator.

A new Episode of RPG Circus also dropped last week. Kaitlynn Peavler came on the show to talk about her new Kickstarter Conquering Corsairs.

In other news, Pulp! is coming along nicely. I have almost all the art I need, and the adventures has come back from the editor. I hope we’ll be right on track for an early March release.

Defenders of Midgard, Urban Dressing and Inkwell Ideas!

Three announcements today in one post!

Defenders of Midgard 

Following up the Midgard Bestiary for 4e comes a new D&D supplement for the exciting world of Midgard. I played Lead Designer but I’m in excellent company for this book features Richard Green, John Pope, Paul Baalham, and introducing Phil Wheeler.

The 24-page, full-color sourcebook includes:

  • 7 new themes for 4e D&D: Clockwork Mage, Corsair, Emissary, Midgard Elementalist, Pantheist Priest, Planewalker, and Siege Mage
  • Gearforged Racial Powers, plus new builds and options that work especially well in the Midgard Campaign Setting
  • New Backgrounds
  • 2 new Schools of Magic (Clockwork Magic and Glyph Magic)
  • New Midgard gear, designed for easy adaptation to a homebrew campaign or another published setting

Urban Dressing: Market Stalls

The Urban Dressing line is a follow up to Raging Swan’s popular Dungeon Dressing line of PDFs. Each one only costs a few bucks and will take a look at an element of urban adventuring and try to make things a bit easier for the Dungeon Master. It reminds me a lot of the Ultimate Toolbox from Alderac Entertainment. If your a fan of the Toolbox, rest assured that I made sure this would be a product that stood on its own.

“Tired of your towns and cities being boring, bland places in which your PCs show little or no interest? Want to bring your towns and cities alive with cool, interesting minor features of note?

Then Urban Dressing is for you! Each instalment in the line focuses on a different common urban fixture such as shops, stalls, thieves and so on and gives the harried GM the tools to bring such features to life with interesting and noteworthy features.

This instalment of Urban Dressing presents loads of great features to add to the market stalls in your campaign. Designed to be used both during preparation or actual play, Urban Dressing: Market Stalls is an invaluable addition to any GM’s armoury!

Urban Dressing: Market Stalls presents:

One table (100 entries) presenting market stalls’ unique appearances and characteristics.
One table (100 entries) presenting the general type of items sold on a market stall.
One table (20 entries) presenting adventure hooks and complications ripe for use with market stalls.
One table (20 entries) presenting 20 NPCs ready to serve as the market stall’s owner.
