A few weeks ago Raven and I decided we wanted and needed to learn 5E better so that we could better understand the newest edition of the game for better or worse. We both love and play the 0E through 2E versions and enjoy them. It was just time to set things aside and dig in to try 5e in earnest without insisting it be an older edition. Here’s my take on how things are going…
The twelfth (12) kickstarter from Fail Squad Games has just launched. Brindlemarsh is the continuation of the Brindle series of adventures. Bogey of Brindle (BR-1) is alaso available through the project or on the website. We’ve added some unique magic items, cool collectibles and an exciting adventure for your heroes!
Written by Lloyd Metcalf and Ric Martens, edited by G.Scott Swift, this new adventure will be a great addition to your tavern tales of adventure.
Dwarfhome stones (created from cockatrice eggs) are one of the new magic items in Brnidlemarsh. The basic module adventure is just $10 to support FSG and help us to go print. $5 for PDF!! Get in now many limited levels.
BACK Brindlemarsh NOW
This adventure picks up in the mines of “The Bogey of Brindle” and transports our heroes to the hidden caves of Brindlemarsh. Trogs, Dragons, and more… what have they got themselves into? Sensible folk would run back home and hang up their armor for good, but adventurers are never “Sensible folk”.
This Kickstarter is launching soon. the writing is complete, most of the map work done, edits finished and more than half the illustrations are in place. We need to complete the 5E conversion and layout before we launch. That’s right, as with all Fail Squad Games Kickstarters almost all the work is done at launch, we just need to support of backers to go to print.
Coming to a table near you…. Brindlemarsh!!! (Nagareth the Terrible)
The OSR (Old School Renaissance or Revival) community is comprised heavily of small indie publishers working multiple jobs, solo entrepreneurs who LOVE games, small companies scraping to get by, or giant companies with very deep pockets. WOTC and Paizo haven’t ignored the OSR as they release and re-hash old titles, so they are included. Of course Paizo had a major hand in making the OSR possible with Pathfinder’s divergence from D&D 3.0 pushing the limits of the Open Gaming License.
This piece of cardstock vibrates with the essence of gaming. The artisanal paper is hand-made from classic adventures, damaged well-played modules and leaves collected from 330 Center Street in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. For those who don’t know, 330 Center Street was the home of Gary Gygax and is the birthplace of Dungeons & Dragons. The world and gaming were forever changed from this modest little home.
The leaves were collected, cleaned, destemmed, then soaked for months to make the fibres pliable enough to be added to paper. Tears were shed as classic adventures and sample printings were pulverized for the pulp. These adventures and leaves were then hand-pressed to create this one of a kind card stock that carries the essence of gaming in every cell.
Lloyd Metcalf, Art director of Gary Con and CEO of Fail Squad Games collected the leaves, made the paper, and finally adorned each piece with thoughtful art in archival ink. Each drawing is intended to bring the essence of classic Dungeons & Dragons and RPGs to everyone who holds it.
Since the first piece was created, it has come to be believed that dice resting on this paper are imbued with the luck and adventures of legend. Is it possible that a roll in a game might somehow be altered by the will of all the heroes of center street, and the uncountable nostalgic adventures that were had with the paper that was recycled into this one little square?
I will have a very limited supply of these, all artwork is unique and different to each piece. Whatever I make will be for sale in the online store CLICK HERE to get yours now!
