Free stuff  - 
 
Dungeon Stocking! Beta6 will be available late this evening.

In the meantime, here's some sample output to show what kind of awesomeness you can expect.

As always, if you don't like what the program gives you, change it!  It just pulls stuff from text files and is happy to take in whatever you want to give it.

Want a Sci-fi flavor?  Change the fantasy metals to Ceramo-organic compounds!  Want more Swords and Sandals?  Change the Art forms to gigantic statues and war banners.  

Source available here: https://bitbucket.org/Ataraxzy/dungeon-stocking/overview  

The .exe available is Beta5, which does not stock specific gems, books or goods.

Anyone with a Python3 environment (Linux users generally have one pre-installed) can run the current source with "python3 RoomStocking.py" in the directory they unzip the source files in.  There's nothing to compile.

It's out!  Just in time for you to come back from your lunch break and check out nearly 40 pages of gaming goodness!

The first full section of Thrumi`Zud, the abandoned Dwarven Fortress is live on DTRPG/RPGNow.

This is a DO-What-You-Want product, not a pay-what-you-want product.  I want no funds, gifts or remuneration for it, the module was written expressly so that you can grab what you want (the formatting, the room descriptions, the layout, the map, whatever) and use it the way you want to.  You get the PDF and the .docx source to do with as you will.  

Sell it unaltered?  Go for it!  
Grab every awesome idea within and put it in your own game or project?  Do it!  
Want to copy the formatting and color-scheme because you think I did a great job (heh), go for it, the .docx file has all that stuff.

The gaming stuff is covered by the OGL (ie: stuff that I didn't write), anything else that might allow copyright to be restricted has been assigned the unbelievably permissive CC-BY license (which boils down to, "Hey! Credit me!" and absolutely no other restrictions), and the art is in the public domain.

ZH-01 is designed for a party of low level adventurers and their henchmen.  That's worth repeating: and their henchmen.  The format has been tweaked to give as much leeway to the DM and players as possible while still retaining the structure of a dungeon crawl.  Initial room descriptions are sparse, HP for monsters appears directly below the statblock, every monster used in the dungeon is right up at the front of the book with full description; the population dynamics were designed to be simple yet yield complex game play, much like chess and so on.

All of it is designed to allow the Players and the GM to engage in collaborative world-building of the best type: When death is on the line and hoping there are no Sicilians around.

I made a table with some Undead Spice! I use it to keep my players on their toes while delving in the Barrowmaze, but perhaps you might find it handy too?

Me too.  I've reprinted Encounter twice because I loved the first two copies to death.
