Very nice. I love Hexographer and look forward to the new version.
 
We’ve now launched our next major project: Worldographer. The Kickstarter has a working (but early) demo version, a list of features, and all the details!…

This will be useful for online games.
 
If you've ever wanted your bard to ride a horse onto the bridge of a starship, and play a tune on his lute for a very confused crew, I finally have you covered!

Here's the first release of Custom SoundPads, a request I got as soon as I released Dark Forest, the 2nd installment of the SoundPad series. And a request I've gotten every week since then.

My paradigm, for this tool, as with all of Tabletop Audio, is push a button, play a sound. It really never needs to be more complicated than that. I'm not a big fan of tools that require a steep learning curve. Especially tools like this one that are used in social situations, i.e. around a table with other humans. As we've all experienced, having someone at your table buried in their device, poking through menus isn't conducive to the shared storytelling experience. In fact, it's the opposite.

If I've done my job right, you should be able to figure out how to use this tool without any help. (But let me know if you have questions!)

One thing, the new broadcast feature hasn't been implemented yet. I'll work on that soon.

Another positive review of Adventurers! If you have not read the system yet, why not? :)
 
Thanks for your review, Mark!
The Adventurers! from GRAmel is pretty exciting concept, an RPG in 2 pages. The layout is pretty neat and you do get a Player's Guide (2 pages) and a GM's Guide (2 pages). The Introduction to the Player's Guide welcomes you...

Another great Planet by +Andrew Chason
 
==== Today's [collab] Planet : Gunter's Pride ====

Gunter's pride, a festering armpit of fart smelling algae and rampant microbial growth. Due to these endless beds of algae, the atmosphere is rich in oxygen from the near stagnant scum covered oceans, but the oxidation and foul smell force most folks to wear scented filtration masks. Filtration is highly advised as pneumonia and lung infections are also a common side effect from breathing the atmosphere for too long, the air brimming in single celled bugs.

Speaking of life on Gunter's Crotch, it's fairly ghastly. From infectious bacteria to lumbering megafauna, the most abundant lifeforms are the non-sentient, igneous shaped, crustaceans. With round humpback shells and clunking in at nearly 12 meters tall, these slow moving bottom feeders extend a beard of straw-like tendrils far beneath the water to the shallow ocean floor. These dumb beasts take decades to grow to full height, and it's easier to poach the younglings than it is to crack the shells of the adults. Mistaken for islands and rock-croppings by tourists, these moss covered oafs are docile, the most harm befalling those who don't heed the warning and become caught in the undertow of their suction.

Why does anyone travel to Gunter's Pride? For one, the Mudren consider it a holy site, though their interest in the world is not understood. To human interests, the ocean floor is littered with splinters of deorbited space faring vessels, a trove of technology for those willing to scuba into the foul smelling and highly flammable juice around the globe.

The second point of interest is Gunter's Belt. From the surface The Belt shines bright in the daytime sun, a glittering graveyard of dust, ice, minerals and the occasional broken mutilated hulk. Those surface side are constantly greeted to "showers" as the belt rains down debris into the oceans. It was surmised that this belt was once the site of a heated battle between proto-species that even the Drevani have no memory of. The Belt is a fierce point of human contention the Mudren have had to become mediators in many times. 

The most famous of these encounters was the live feed of Cowley's War, broadcast by courier-ship nearly 32/12 throughout the Hegemony. Cowley was the system forman of a large-but-independent mining corp: Jiaru Metals Group. As they spread through The Belt Jairu scrapped every metallic rock and ship fragment they could find. The other company with ring-side outposts was Buka Laboratories, a highly respected scientific research and development firm with an impressive spread of resources.

The long and short of it: Cowley's men found a fully intact vessel parked, clinging to the the shadow of an asteroid. Coms chatter spread about the discovery; about how it looked similar to the ship that Talisa Higbee found on Mars centuries before man became lost in the stars. Buka Laboratories ignorantly expected Jiaru to hand the wreck over, Cowley decided they'd fight to the death for it. And fight they did. The result was a bitter 2 year (standard) long battle that resulted in even more junk being added to the spin of Gunter's Belt. In the end the Triumvirate stepped in, and neither group was allowed to keep the ship. This tantrum nearly cost humany access to Gunter's Pride.

So, this was just released. It is NOT a Black Hack item, and I feel it was not a good idea to do the cover like this as people will expect it to go with Black Hack.

 It does not, it is a different thing. It moves BoL to a D20 resolution instead of 2D6, adds a new class mechanic and turns that version of BoL OGL. First skim it looks solid, but will have to give it a prober read later. I love BoL so this might be a great merger of systems.

Interesting take on a Savage Max game. Solid start. Not sure about the fuel draw yet, otherwise very cool and fitting for the setting. 
Preview of my Savage Max Setting: This conversion is meant to be hard on your characters. Players really need to do their best to survive. Do you spend your bennies on Blood and Guts, or do you save them to soak due to Grit...
