Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea

North Wind Adventures (Jeff Talanian) is having a 25% off sale for everything PDF in the Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea series. I got the update  from the recent Kickstarter which looks like it’s about to send to the printer! Right when I was just looking at their website last night about picking up some of the other modules!

I posted a review of AS&SH awhile back on I have to admit, though, that I’m a little embarrassed by the review. I’ve learned so much more about this product (and it’s history) since then and I don’t think I gave it proper credit. I refer you to this post regarding a question I had about the setting. There’s some other good videos on YouTube, but this was a great interview of Jeff Talanian by Matt Finch.

Sale at Gamescience

OK dice nerds. I just got an email that there is an 18% off orders of $20 or more at Gamescience. There is no code; it is automatically added in the cart if you reach the $20 minimum. The sale ends on July 1st and includes the DecoColor paint pens in case you want to get all DIY and paint them yourselves and save the inking charge. Take my word for it; try it at least once; you’ll greatly appreciate having your own personally inked dice! (and appreciate that it’s not nearly as easy as you’d think!)

Dungeon Crawl Classics PDF Sale on RPGNow

There appears to be a big sale going on over at RPGNow/DriveThruRPG and I just picked up a ton of great Goodman Games PDFs for $1 each. basically this is a deal on their 3e products, but there’s a few more if you look:

DCC RPG and Metamorphosis Alpha are only reduced 20% which I think is the usual price, listing for completeness. But look at the Hurricane Harvey Relief bundle if you haven’t got these three modules (67, 75, 91) yet!

All these have affiliate links; doesn’t hurt my feelings if you take it off, just letting you know.



Free Graph Paper

I have set up a page linking to various types of graph paper I have created for free download. All are in PDF and are suitable for printing on regular paper via printer. Currently, I have squares, triangles, isometric, and hexagons in a couple different sizes/orientations.

Link to this will remain at the menu on top of the blog under “maps”.


Everything I post is free. Please feed my ravenous, yet introverted ego… Like, Follow, Share, Comment 🙂




Swords & Wizardry Complete Rulebook for Pay What You Want

This may be a limited thing, but I see the Swords & Wizardry Complete Rulebook up on RPGnow/DTRPG for “Pay What You Want”. This is normally $34.99.

Written by Matt Finch and Published by Frog God Games, I’ve really been meaning to read through this. I may be a bit wrong, but from my research, regarding retro-clones, S&W is to be based on the 1974 OD&D. And, this seems to have a lot of support.

S&W comes in three versions, an essential “White Box” version, an updated “Core” version with expanded rules, and this “Complete” rulebook which I gather combines all the above.
