Hero's Brew Podcast - Episode #1 - The Trio Unleashed - IS LIVE!

We did it!

The Hero's Brew Podcast is here!

First episode is live and embedded right above. You can also play it on your IOS or Android device using the Podbean app and in a day or so it should be fully into the wilds of iTunes and other services.

We'll also be putting together a page here at The Tavern that will link to all of the epidodes as they release.

Should there be show notes? Definitely. Are there? Not yet.

What do we talk about? Listen and find out. You never know. Maybe we talked about you ;)

I'm just a screenshot to allow visual imaging on social media ;)

Announcement - Mark Rein-Hagen Joins Vampire 5e Dev Team

This was announced yesterday on the White Wolf Facebook page.

Vampire 1e (and the GURPS Conversion) are the only editions I own.

Lots of strong personalities on the dev team. Should be interesting times.

Swords & Wizardry Light lands at RPGNow - Let's Make it a Best Seller!

Frog God Games has uploaded the Swords & Wizardry Light files for "sale" at RPGNow / DriveThruRPG.

I'd like to see Swords & Wizardry Light trend as a best seller :)

Note, the SWL products available for download are priced at PWYW. This is a necessity for sales ranking purposes. DO NOT pay for them! If you feel you must, drop a penny or a nickel in the tip jar.

If you already have PDF copies of the SWL rules, Tome of Horrors Light Volume 1 and the SWL Character cards, I ask that you download again for FREE. The aim is to get more exposure to the rules and the offerings, and the best way to do that is to see them trending as best sellers.

Lets get this done!

Victorious Bundle - Over 60 bucks Worth of Steampunk Adventure in the Age of SuperMankind for 20 Bucks (Troll Lord Games)

This weekend Mike Stewart's "2017 Three Castles Award Winning" RPG Victorious has a bundle on sale at RPGNow / DriveThruRPG. You get over 60 bucks worth of Victorious releases (including the core game) for 20 bucks. You really can't go wrong.

I played in a session of Mike's Victorious at NTRPG 2015 and it was a blast! The rules are built off of Castles & Crusades and should feel familiar to any that play OSR games.

For 20 bucks you get enough material to play a Victorious Campaign for years :)
Hey all--it's Gen Con this weekend! We're not there, and if you're not either (or even if you are, we aren't bitter) then here's a little sale on Victorious product to hopefully help you feel a little better about it. 
Save over 60% on The Victorious Bundle! The core rulebook, introductory adventure A Night For Jackals and four supplements--Rule Britannia, Manifest Destiny, Phantasmagoria, and the Hunter & Hunter Catalogue.
Now through Sunday you can get this bundle, normally over $60 -- yours for $19.99!

Another Gygax Memorial Fund Update - Alex Gygax Joins the Board of Directors of the GMF

I'm putting this squarely in the "Holy Shit I did not see this coming!" category. I always saw the Gygax Memorial Fund as Gail's personal albatross. Although her sister and brother in law are also board members, Gail has frequently - well, more than once, pointed out that she is the one doing it all.

Now that Alex Gygax is on the board I expect to see some movement on the project. I know the lad hates my very being (and I truly do understand why) but I sincerely wish him only success in his new position. He is what the GMF needs - young blood that want's to do right by his father's legacy.

I suspect we'll be seeing more updates soon.


Next #ConManKen will announce the release of the KotDT LAS ;)

Update - Gygax Memorial Find - A Plaque, T-Shirts and Pencils!?!

Its Gen Con time, so news and updates as it trickles in.

Gail Gygax presented Gen Con with a plaque celebrating its 50th show. I know, pics or it never happened ;)

(note - screenshots are from Gail's FB page. I'm blocked so these shots were sent by another. As always, a HUGE thank you to The Tavern's Community for all the help)

See that comment about shirts and pencils? Hold on to your hats, boys and girls, because this shit is going to get real!

Here's the link to the GMF shirts with pencils.

I must admit, Gail has done something that #ConManKen has been unable to do - produce and sell custom pencils.

Now that the Fund appears to have an income stream again, perhaps things will be moving forward.

The shirt looks nice. I should do a GoFundMe to buy one and take a pic in it ;)
