Three Quick Shout Outs!

Get ready to throw your money at the following:

Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG World Tour 2014!:

The folks at Goodman Games are at it again and trying to raise some funds to support their DCC RPG 2014 World Tour! The goal is to produce some new swag to support public game. Last year's swag was awesome. Let's help them go even bigger! Do it!:

Crawljammer No. 1!

A new print zine for DCC RPG! And it's awesome. It's focused on a pulp-style space-crawling campaign. It includes the cosmology of the space setting and how to run adventures in the ether of space, a new character class and an adventure that features the planet Venus! Genius, and just plain F'n cool.

I'm going to steal the ship combat for my nautical themed issue...

Get it in Print &/or PDF here:

Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad no. 1

Oh man. This too is SOOO GOOD! Honestly, DCC RPG is winning when it comes to fan-created supplements, especially in the form of zines.

This guy is also a setting, but centered on the city of Ur-hadad. It includes a background of the setting and the city. It also has random "assassin" generator of sorts, being that assassins are "illegal" in Ur-Hadad. A full 0-level funnel, where the PCs start off as street kids and have to deal with random gangs, and a "plug-in" encounter scenario, designed to fit in an existing dungeon.

It's all very inspiring stuff! I'm envious and excited for these projects. I've got to get working on no. 10...

Crawl! no.9, Available Now!

Print+PDF: Buy it HERE and get the PDF Immediately! (Or Buy Now!)
PDF Only: Buy now! (also on RPGnow)

No. 9 will be made available in all the other usual places as soon as possible!
Crawl! no.9: The Arwich Grinder

The Curwen Family have lived up among the pine woods on the outskirts of Arwich Village for as long as the oldest village gaffers can remember. The beautiful Bessie Curwen’s bonnet is found in a strange creature’s grasp. The village owes much to her family, so someone must go up into the dark pine-clad hills to make sure that the Curwens are all right. After all, the Curwens saved the village from starvation two winters ago. If you do not go, who will?

The Arwich Grinder is a Lovecraftean 0-level funnel for the DCC RPG written by Daniel J. Bishop.

What in the name of heaven or hell could be happening up there?

Also included, But He Sure Had Guts!, a gruesome short encounter.

New fancy form to make digital (PDF) edition requests

For those that get print copies, and want to also get a PDF, please use the following form. The previous method (of emailing me) was clunky, analog and sloppy. Hopefully this makes it a bit more automatic, especially for those with subscriptions. Hopefully...

Visit: or page through:

Official DCC RPG 14 dice-set Kickstarter

Pretty much official, but it needs funding!

I'm in for $40. Which gives me 2 complete sets and a couple extra. Your first complete set can be had for $22, but if you're smarty-mathy, you'll notice additional complete sets of 14 DCC RPG dice can be had for $16. So you can team up with others and get a bunch of sets!

Crawl! no.9: The Arwich Grinder, coming soon!

Cat's out of the bag. It's finished. But you'll have to wait a few weeks. We'll count on +Mario Torres+Daniel Bishop and +Sean Poppe to drop a few teasers until it gets its general release around January 17th. Of course there are perks to being a subscriber, they get their copy first! I made a small run to make that happen, but I just happen to have a couple extras that I'm willing to send before I go on my trip. Since it's Christmas, and I'm feeling generous (but still pretty sick), I'll make it easy. I'll pick one random commenter and another who can humor me with their secret remedy for common cold symptoms. You have until Noon, PST, December 26th.

End of the Year News!

And it's mostly ALL GOOD!

First off, from Straycouches Press, the publisher of this little zine, I'd like to introduce D.A.M.N. Issue 1. A DCC RPG Adventure and News Magazine:


Secondly, Crawl! no. 9 is finished! And approved! And on the way to the printers!

And now for the bad news. I'm sick, I have a stupid cold and my girlfriend doesn't want me to work. And that's because I have to get better by the 26th. I want to get no.9 shipped to my subscribers before I go on this long-ass winter vacation to Bogota, Colombia. But I kind of made my promise to get #9 out ASAP, it didn't' happen in November when I wanted to. But it's done. The art is fantastic. The adventure is wicked, a 0-level funnel by the writing monster-machine +Daniel Bishop. I even had room to squeeze a gruesome little short encounter of his in the end. So if all goes well, subscribers should see a little zine in their mailbox before the end of the year. The general public will have to wait for me to set up the sites to take orders for it. My lovely girlfriend blames my cold on stress, and she thinks the stress is because of Straycouches Press. She might be right, but she is totally right that I have to be well before I fly to South America... gulp. How can I be so excited and sick at the same time?! Somehow between now and Thursday I have to make and ship 150 zines, pack 3 weeks of clothes and two bicycles. And Chismas is smack in the middle of it...
