Kickstarter - RPG Achievement Stickers

"Achievement stickers for your favorite tabletop roleplaying game!"

What do you get the tabletop RPG gamer that has everything? Stickers, just like they were getting in the early years of grade school. RPG Achievement Stickers that is!

Oh, my bad. Like they get in video games. Actually, I'm not sure which is worse in my opinion for the adult gamer. For my 8-year-old niece, I'm sure they'd work for a bit before becoming old hat and put to the side.

2 1/2 days left to fund as I type this. Short just less than 20% of its funding goal.

10 bucks for one sheet, 20 bucks for all four. I guess if are willing to pay for one sheet, four is a no brainer.

Wayward Kickstarter - Erotic Adventures - Apparently it Has Performance Anxiety

Ah yes, this winner of a Kickstarter, Erotic Adventures. I backed for a buck just for the drama ;P
The Erotic Adventures book, compatible with 5th edition, will feature the sexual attraction system, fetish rules, new spells, new items, new feats, new races, new monsters, new gods, and new specialties. Play a barbarian maenad and use sex to recharge your rage. Play a rogue paramour and manipulate others using seduction. Cast a spell to enlarge your breasts, or gain an additional penis. Fight a gender bending semen ooze. And much, much more...  
The goal is 1000 dollars, but, for each additional 100 dollars I raise, I will add a picture to the book. If we reach 2000 dollars, I will make an android app based on the book and put it for sale on SlideMe.  
So back this project, and be one of the first to bring sex into the world of 5e! 
PDF was due in December of 2017. Print book in December of 2018. (It funded October 5th, 2017)

Here's the update from earlier today. At least it's an honest one.

How many Kickstarter Creators suffer from depression? I ask because it crops up A LOT, certainly more than it appears in the general population.

I guess there's still no sex in 5e...

Reminder - Tavern Chat Tonight - 9 PM Eastern - I'll be There - Renovations Willing

Renovations continue yet at La Casa de Tenkar. Last night my contractor wrapped up AFTER 10 pm. Tonight? Your guess is as good as mine. It's that last 2% that takes up 50% of the time.

In any case, the weekly Tavern Chat hangout is at 9PM Eastern tonight and every Wednesday night in the Tavern's Discord Server. Voice, text, pics and more.

Use the following link:


Looking forward to hearing from you tonight...

Rot Grubs - I've Always Hated Them - As a Player and a DM

I've never really seen a Rot Grubs that I've ever liked. Wait, that's a joke, son.

JoeTheLawyer left me a voicemail over on the Tavern Chat podcast (and I'll be putting that episode up later tonight) about, specifically out Tim (Gothridge Manor) using rot grubs to cut down on Joe digging through every piece of garbage in a session looking for loot. And therein lies my issue with rot grubs. They aren't really an adversary. Much like Green Slime, they are more trap or poison than predator.

Here's their description:
Rot grubs are occasionally found in heaps of offal or dung. They are rarely
found in ceilings, walls, or floors. These small creatures will viciously burrow
into any living flesh which touches them, for they greatly enjoy such fare to
dine upon. The victim must immediately apply flame to the wound (1-6 hit
points damage per application) or have a cure disease spell cast upon him.
Otherwise, the rot grubs will burrow to the heart and kill their host in
1-3 turns.
Yep the cure can kill you. I've changed my mind. They are worse than poison...

There is an All Editions D&D Sale Going On - OSR Included (DriveThruRPG)

May is the month for a Massive D&D sale over at DriveThruRPG - and I only just started looking at it tonight. Seriously, I do apologize. There simply has been lots of balls in the air outside of Tavern related activities (renovations at the Casa de Tenkar are continuing. The last bits seem to be the most tedious and time-consuming. So close ;)

Later on tonight and tomorrow I'm going to go through the sale collection and will highlight some OSR friendly choices.

In the meantime, some publishers to check out (in no particular order):

Goodman Games DCC RPG and more

Fat Goblin Games Includes stock art

Autarch ACKS

Frog God Games - Swords & Wizardry adventures

Cubicle 7 - Adventures in Middle Earth

Swords & Wizardry - technically a category ;)

So, What'd the Latest with Far West and Gareth Shirker?


What the latest on Far West and our favorite Shirker?

Absolutely fucking nothing. The last update is STILL from December 22 of last year. But hey, why update your backers nearly five months after your last bullshit update (just sharing the relevant promises)
I'd intended to get all of this done before year's end -- I'll be blunt:  This is unlikely, though possible.  The reason it's unlikely is because I am headed out to spend Christmas with my extended family for the first time in 15 years, and naturally want to be as present as possible -- although I suspect that I'll still find time here and there to get some stuff done (and we'll be back home before year-end).  In all likelihood, though, this will get its final touches once I'm back in the office on Monday, January 7th. 
So we're almost there.  Layout has begun, so the full PDF will follow soon after the final chapter deliveries, and then to the printer.  Thank you all so much for your continued support and patience, which has been far more than anyone could hope for.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

Hey, gonna threaten to punch me in the throat again, Mr Shirker?

I'll be in Dallas at NTRPG Con June 5th through June 10th. Sorry, I'm not making a trip to Kansas, but I'm sure you'll be welcomed in Texas. Or come to NYC anytime. I'll even buy you a drink, so long as you are okay with waiting 7 1/2 years.


Hey publishers? Would you be okay if someone you hired to produce a gaming product was 7 1/2 years late and STILL was no closer to delivery? What about threatening physical violence? How the fuck does Mr Shirker continue to get work in the industry?
