Introducing Gaffer Games (James Spahn's Other Small Publishing Company)

I've known James Spahn for the better part of a decade, ever since he made a splash on DTRPG publishing classes for Labyrinth Lord. I sent James my spare copy of Swords & Wizardry Complete and would like to think that I was instrumental in James' switch to supporting Swords & Wizardry :) James has worked on more IPs and game systems than I am able to count. James is literally like a brother to me at this point, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

James has formed a new publishing label for small, PWYW projects that don't quite fit under the Barrel Rider Games umbrella, Gaffer Games.

From James: Gaffer Games is a small one-man publishing company run by me. I write, edit, layout (such as it is) and publish free or pay what you want games here on itch.to. The games you'll find here are raw, creative expressions that aren't as polished as my works published as a freelancer or under my other publishing company Barrel Rider Games.

At the moment there are three titles available at the Gaffer Games web store:

The Tavern is supported by readers like you. The easiest way to support The Tavern is to shop via our affiliate links. The Tavern DOES NOT do "Paid For" Articles and discloses personal connections to products and creators written about when applicable.

DTRPGAmazon, and Humble Bundle are affiliate programs that support The Tavern.  You can catch the daily Tavern Chat cast on AnchorYouTube or wherever you listen to your podcast collection. - Tenkar

  1. Fantastic that he is publishing for Shadowdark. More people that put out content for that wonderful gaming system the better.
