A long time ago I wrote a post about Dyson´s Dodecahedron, the pretty maps he provides there (for personal use, and some even for commercial use as well) and about his tutorials. Today, I finally made use of it. Month ago I bought myself two felt-tip markers and a pad with blank papers. And never used them, because I am lazy and I feared that it would be time-consuming to draw a map instead of using my computer to “draw” something. Well, today I proofed myself wrong (see picture).
My first map is for sure not a beauty, but it is functional, it looks unique and it wasn´t really time-consuming to draw it. In fact, I was surprised how quickly I was able to create it. No ruler was involved, I just had put a sheet of paper with squares under the white paper I drew upon (to have some “reference”).
So, what is this? This a hidden underground summoning chamber that I use(d) in a FATE(tm) game I am currently running (where the players are 15th century English witch-finders in an alternate history of my own design). The entrance to it was hidden in the altar in a chapel of a very old noble estate: treads led down a bricked shaft and into a tunnel that ended in front of a derelict wooden door with iron work. In a little niche to the left of it a next to burned down candle rested in a tin holder.
Disclaimer for my players: KEEP OUT!

Vampires in Space. Why shouldn´t the eternal dwellers in the dark invade the cold vastness of space, and those tiny-shiny colonies of life and civilization that dot this uncaring and empty canvas? Well, I see now reason why. But the classic drawbacks of undead would profit form a little adaption once Dracula enters the space-age.
My last release was a powered-by-FATE version of my system-neutral 30 Drawbacks for SciFi Vampires. The PbF-Version does not only translate all of the 30 entries to the FATE(tm) core system, but also includes two suggestions for SciFi Vampires. Suggestion that I want to share with you in this blog post.

The Mutated Nesting Roachswarm I mentioned in one of my latest blog posts could infest more RPG´s than just the Mutant Future(tm). After all, the movie I took it from was not even fantastic, was it? Let´s see where those buggers could turn up as well…

Birthday Flash Sale! *imaging blinking lights right HERE*
My birthday is coming, and as I would like to gift myself with some (further) PDF from drivethrurpg.com, I staged a !BIRTHDAY FLASH SALE! over there: most of the titles that I have released in 2016 are 50% off till 21st of July 2017.
Oh! And I released a new Powered-by-FATE(tm) title today (Examples of the Dark Arts Vol.03) and included it in a bundle [Gregorius21778: The Dark Arts (PbF)].
Thanks for your attention!
…the two are an odd mix, aren´t they? Well, I am an odd guy known to do odd jobs, and this weekend I felt like mixing something old with something new. Something old is a re-hash of my old Lectures of the Tech-Witch, now available with DH2nd compatible rules, right here in my dropbox.
Something new is the result of a little surge of inspiration that lead to the creation of a pay-what-you-want release for FATE(tm): Techno/Arcana. I am not sure if anybody needs this loose canon of an idea, but then again: it is released already and out there.
Hmm… why do I feel a little blue now?
Today I finished my work on a powered-by-FATE(tm) compatible version of my Examples of the Dark Arts Vol.02. Unlike its predecessor, Vol.02 is a straight item list without any “fluff text”, but puts the focus on the items and the rules. And of course, I made some minor changes to some of the items, in order to integrate them into the new rules set. And until the end of April 2017, you are able to get this title for a reduced price at drivethrurpg.com by following the link above.
So much for the sales talks. Now, lets get to the stuff you are all here for: free examples of some of the items included in Examples of the Dark Arts Vol.02 (PbF)…
