In a few days I am going to release a new pay-what-you-want title for Mutant Future(tm) at drivethrurpg.com. But you, my dear followers, shall have access to it right here, right now. Loot Tables for Pigmen (and other bestial, mutated grunts). And as some do not like to download PDF, I will post the whole content here as well…
A long, long time ago I created a table with Psychic Phenomena and Warp Perils, tailored for “Dead Stars”, the third part of the Haarlock´s Legacy Trilogy. Now, in 2017, a fellow FFG form-user asked me for such alternate tables, and so I dusted of my old table, correct some of bad grammar and got myself some artwork (see above) to give it all a neat look. And here you have it, all minted for DH1st, I hope you have fun with it.
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.
Thanks for your attention!
I like to write random encounter tables. I really do. The inspiration in a nutshell approach one can take with them appeals to me and fits my current (lack of?) writing style. What I am talking about? My latest release, 20 Weird, Irradiated Encounters for a Mutated Post-Apocalyptic Swamp, which I promptly threw onto the Weird, Irradiated Scrap Heap.
Since this shameless house-advertising (SHA) is not what you read my blog for, I copy-pasted the first six of them here (see below). After all, it was time for a new blog post as well.
According to this German news article, there is a beach in Thailand (the beach of Ko Si Chang) that is always littered with plastic junk. This is due to a large patch of this stuff out on the ocean that is slowly carried onto the beach, piece by piece. Any afford to clean the beach seems futile: after about an hour, there is a new assortment of junk ruining the view. So much for the bitter reality of things, now let´s see how to use this bit of real-life information in different RPG settings.
…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?
When the Ghost in the Shell anime came out I was in love with it. Back then, I was in love with everything cyberpunk in general: the attitude, the esprit of it, and the concept of cyberware in general. Guess it is safe to say that I am sucker for good prop. I also loved anime, adored Akira and was deeply impressed by the pictures that Ghost in the Shell delivered. The meanings of some of them I was able to realize only later on.
As I saw the trailer for the remake (I will not call it a re-visioning) it already gave me the feel that something was very wrong there. To some of my friends, I am the incarnation of nerd-rage when it comes to movies, and thereby my opinions are and were discarded as quickly as those of a person who is known to rage for rage´s sake is to be discarded by somebody with poise and rationality (thank you, Fall Out Boy).
As I saw the movie, I found my apprehensions to be justified, every single ounce. They took this beauty and drowned it, pushed it under the surface of mass-market-compatibility till everything of it that breathed stopped to do so. The still beautiful corpse I had seen on display, on a very wide movie theater screen: it moved with all the grace of the original husk and with all the skill that professional editors and filmmakers are known to deliver. And it is beautiful in its own right. But if you knew what it was, and are able to compare it to what it has is been turned to, if you felt anything for what it used to be, you have to have a strange taste in your mouth: embalming fluid and salt, for you danced with, embraced and kissed a mummy.
