The Felltree is also a plant featured in the upcoming Beneath The Bare Autumn Tree Our Fields Sprout Ghosts And To The Hearth We Bring Rot.

+Max Vanderheyden over here doin the good works!
Happy 2018 everyone. Here is a scenario inspired by +cecil howe @no_taverns feed and using a #HexKit map. I feel like it would slot into the #Dolmenwood setting pretty easily. Let’s hope we don’t have to pay for the sins of 2017 like this town is.

Gabe Soria and +Sam Mameli and I put this Christmastime Sword & Backpack supplement together; it's been in the works for a year and it is so so good. Check it out: http://coneofnegativeenergy.com/winterfeast/

I posted that picture of the spread, and it got mentioned by +Jacob Hurst that the layout was pretty similar to his in A Field Guide To Hot Springs Island and it totally is. I hadn't looked at the Field Guide in a super long time, and yeah, I have admittedly done a near-mirror job here. This style of layout is pretty popular in gardening books and botany journals, which is probably how we both arrived at it. I don't know if I should start over on my illustrations (they are physically tied to the cornering lines) and redo my layout or what, but I just want everyone to know that I am not trying to rip Jacob off or steal his ideas or anything; he did a great job with the Swordfish Islands project. It is a clear and elegant way to present plants and and herbs and shit; it has been for a really really long time. So I'd like to court the opinion of the general G+ RPG public on whether or not this is something I should avoid and/or ask the blessing of Jacob to keep going forward.

Here is a little bit more information about this project, called Beneath The Bare Autumn Tree Our Fields Sprout Ghosts And To The Hearth We Bring Rot. It's a system neutral Stardew Valley/Harvest moon inspired dice game about growing magic plants. It has the dice game (a bunch of you playtested a few months ago), a guide to playing a Rotcob (which is like a witch type farmer/alchemist who insta-grows the plants using the dice game) in whatever RPG system you want, has a manual of some 30 plants, and a quick guide on using the farming dice game with not-magical plants in your base building or kindgdom running RPGs. So yeah, there's that.

What to do, G+?

In Dragon Issue #82 (from February 1984) there is a board game called The Baton Races of Yaz. I remade the map in Hex Kit.

I used to teach contemporary music stuffs to teenagers. One time I was speaking to a high school music class about the curriculum the non profit I worked for used and I got into a debate with a 15 year old about who was better, Explosions In The Sky or This Will Destroy You. EITS still gets way more play than TWDY for me, but I'll be gotdamned if this one isn't a gem.

+Daniel Fox & Co Have sold 21,000 Print copies of Zweihander. Holy shit. Anyways, I wrote a thing about how you can really work DTRPG hard based mostly on things Daniel told me, some emails with DTRPG, and my own experience. http://www.swordpeddler.com/how-to-become-a-godzillionaire-on-drivethrurpg-if-your-name-doesnt-rhyme-with-yon-blick-clobbert-malwb-or-blizzard-of-the-toast/

This only part of the process though, the first step is making something that doesn't suck.

Also I shared this earlier, noticed an error and deleted it. Before I could repost it I had to go pull a tooth out of my kid's head.
