The AD&D Rules are starting to show up in PDF on DriveThruRPG. Anyone downloaded this yet? How does the scan compare to the bootlegs that have been floating around the web for years? I thought the quality of the B/X rules was really good and I was please to buy them to replace my bootleg PDFs.

Old School Small Press Sales

+Brent Newhall shared some of his sales info this morning, and I thought I would do the same. Here are my sales for the first half of 2015 on DriveThruRPG.

4 years after launch Weird West has sold over 1,400 copies.

The adventures are all Pay What You Want, and this is just the number where people have paid something for them. The Ancient Academy was downloaded 211 times this year, and Citadel of Evil 267 times.

You can view all the products I have stats for listed here: http://bit.ly/1fkwUry

That's the number of purchases. PWYW is variable, but you can see cover prices via the link in the post (most are $1 but Mecha Force is $2). The idea was an experiment in "App Pricing" for RPGs, and I've been very happy with how it worked out. 

Of course you won't be quitting your day job with those numbers either. ;)

They only had this version in Macross where the FAST pack booster included a laser cannon.

I think I'm going to try some different shading on her face with the stylus/iPad and see what I like. Digital is better for experimenting in that regard. :)

Festival! Festival!
 
:::::ANTIGEN CON 2 ::::: Can't make it to Gen Con this year? Feel like you're missing out on the action? Born on the wrong side of the planet? LIVE IN FEAR NO MORE. ANTIGEN CON 2! G+ RPG THROWDOWN D.I.Y. ONLINE FESTIVAL IS HERE! 

(Worked well enough last year, who's up for round 2?)

ANTI-GM's :::: In a couple of days I'll put up the CALL FOR GM's to run stuff over that weekend. If you're up for running something sign up there.

ANTI-PLAYERS :::: A week after that, once I have an idea of who's up for running what and when, I'll post a CALL FOR PLAYERS schedule of events for you to sign up to as many games as you like. If the GM gets more players than they're up for running, it's up to the GM to decide who gets to play. Once you've signed up the GM will be in touch with all the deets and away you go!

And if people want to run game related talks, tutorials, or whatever lemme know.

The only rule at ANTIGEN CON is this: be excellent to each other. See you there!

It's the Bones III kickstarter! Probably a great place to get tons of plastic miniatures for RPGs, even if you end up not painting most of them. ;)
Reaper Miniatures Bones 3 is a project to continue the expansion of Reaper's Bones line of high-quality plastic gaming miniatures.

"Fun Fact: Project Updates are done manually - this is not an automated system. What does this mean? It means we’re going to try to keep up, but things are moving pretty fast and our goals are pretty close together, so we’re not sure we can! On average, to update the front page and everything within the Update system, each Update takes about 15 minutes to do correctly. We’re going to keep trying, but while things are moving at this pace, we’ve decided to focus primarily on updating the images on the Front Page, to try to keep those as up to date as possible. That page is slightly easier to keep up-to-date than the system used to Post Updates such as this. Once things slow to a point where we can keep up, we’ll post one big update with everything that was unlocked in the meantime."

And it's only been, what, 20 minute? :)

Someone was looking for this kind of graph paper this morning. A smaller hex grid within a larger one at 6 hexes to a larger hex, suitable for doing some old school D&D mapping.

In Shadowrun and other Cyberpunk games what sort of backgrounds would you suggest for characters before they became runners / adventurers etc? Where did they get their training? How did they get the money to pay for all their cyberware?

I was thinking abbot the backgrounds from D&D 5e and how many of those could be used. What other ones would you suggest adding?

I'm sort of impressed with the new rules for Warhammer. Only 4 pages of rules and all the stats for models available for download. Has anyone played with the new rules yet?
The World Before Time may be gone - shattered by malign forces, and consigned to a demise no-one could have foretold- but this doesn't mean your collection of miniatures needs to meet the same fate. Available here for free download is everything you need to use your existing collection in games ...

I've been reading a lot from both sides. Beer and pretzels is fine by me, as I'm mainly a painter and have no interest in competitive play, but I did prefer the sight of big orderly blocks on the table. (I guess I can still have that before my Skaven hit combat though!) If I try it and don't like it I will go back to 8th with friends anyway. I quite like the Warscrolls and I'm interested to see where things go from here.

I watched Edge of Tomorrow last night, and thought it was good. I'm not the biggest fan of the "Groundhog Day" style of story where a day keeps repeating until they "get it right" but it was a very well done take on it, and once the day stopped repeating I enjoyed a more normal SciFi action adventure.

If you enjoyed the film, I recommend the book it was based on http://www.amazon.ca/All-You-Need-Is-Kill-ebook/dp/B005LJETYI
