Alternative Header-Test

Hmmm...might stick with the current header. This feels a bit heavier than I had expected. But hey, it was sitting there in the folder from before I got hurt, so I at least wanted to try it out.


Finally, we were able to stop by our favorite local brew-pub and enjoy a couple of Old Eight Porters thanks to success of Taglar's Tomb. We had to hold off going to the pub for a little while until Jim was done with the meds for his injury, but all is going well and we're both looking forward to a healthy and productive Autumn...fingers crossed!

It is going to take a little bit to get back up to speed, but we're back to work on stuff and hope to have some fresh new adventures and whatnot ready to go very soon, including news on what's been going on with Wermspittle, Bujilli and more.

Thank you for your support.

Beer money is a great motivator...

Taking a little longer...

I recently injured my back and have not been online a whole lot since the injury, but I have been catching-up on my reading and working on some maps and such stuff. When I can. When my hand isn't shaking. I'm using a lot less of the meds now, and the pain has substantially subsided, as long as I don't do anything too stupid. So I'm still around, still going, but I'm slowed down considerably, at least for the moment. I am improving, so I expect to be back at the blog soon. If I am able, I will try to get an episode of Bujilli out today, otherwise it'll be delayed one more week. I apologize for that. It was not the plan. It sucks. But I'll do my best to get back up to speed as quickly as I can.

Bonus Maps for The Horrid Caves from The Manor Issue 7

Click to Download
Issue 7 of Tim Short's RPG-Zine The Manor is available via his online store Gothridge Manor Games or at RPGNow, where the pdf is currently discounted to $2.50. A print copy will set you back $4.00 ($4.50 in Canda, $5.00 elsewhere).

Tim managed to pack a lot into just 24 pages. There's a traveling potion-peddler, the Skinwalker as a playable class option, a set of gonzo Arduin-esque magic mirrors, a nifty mini-adventure involving a fire demon, a mind-bending Mind Flayer Haiku, and The Horrid Caves, which is one of our adventures, this time involving a series of caves where a powerful prehuman warlord held court long, long ago. If you haven't checked out The Manor yet, click over to Tim's Gothridge Manor blog and take a look at the various posts tagged The Manor, or better still, just pick an issue at random and download it from RPGNow while they're all discounted to $2.50. We both really enjoyed Issue 6 quite a bit.

We're offering a free set of bonus maps for The Horrid Caves. There is one numbered and one unnumbered map in each of three versions, so you can provide a player's version of the map or re-key the thing, or use the map for another site, as you like.
