Is there a weird thing where you’ve gotten a thing published, and you’re suddenly like “I NEED EVERYTHING I’VE EVER DONE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW!” and then you have trouble sleeping because you’re too obsessed thinking of ways to get other stuff out?

Out in PDF!
The PDF for Dead Planet is now available on DrivethruRPG.

+FM Geist, +Donn Stroud, +Jarrett Crader worked incredibly hard on this module starting at Origins and finishing just before Gen Con.

It's packed to the brim wtih usable, gameable content for any sci-fi rpg, including:

- A one-page adventure on a derelict ship, called THE SCREAMING ON THE ALEXIS.
- A planetcrawl of the dead planet with several locations, including the five-level underground bunker THE RED TOWER
- An exploration of a ritual cannabilistic society traped on the Dead Planet's moon in MOON COLONY BLOODBATH
- A generator for making your own derelict ships at the table
- Several incredible tables ripe for stealing, including: d100 nightmares, d100 colonists, an eerie sculpture generator, and a hyperdrive malfunction table
- And a lot more

Print copies are coming soon - I'm just working with the fulfillment company to get everything setup on the website.


EDIT: Spelling, grammar. Pointed out by my editors smh.

Get over and help fill this beast out if you want!
I could use some Gygaxian Democracy.

I'm trying to get a sci-fi horror sector put together and I'd love input from the OSR. If you're interested, post up a thing here and give it a number 00-99.

The only things are:
- It's sci-fi horror, so you know don't have a bunch of goblins in pirate hats or whatever
- No like romulan/klingon/star wars type aliens. Basically all aliens are terrifying awful awful things and you should want to avoid them. (More ridley scott and john carpenter). Ghosts and supernatual shit is great too.
- Not everything has to be earth shatteringly jaw droppingly awesome or the start of a huge campaign
- Making connections to the other entries is awesome

Two entries per number would be great. I'll take all the results and format it all pretty and put it up for everyone with a list of the contributors.

Any takers?

EDIT: let’s try to keep it to two sentences or less.

Can’t go wrong.
Gen Con is past and...

THE HOBONOMICON #0 is available !!! (while supplies last)

**Go to to purchase.**

If you are just hearing about this here is what it's about:
This book includes the beginning of the DCC graphic novel, Death of a Reaver , and materials being used to run this years after hours DCC game , Escape from Planet Punjar.

In the future there will be more comic stuff from myself and +Stefan Poag and all kinds of other gaming stuff , including pervious after hours games like Inferno Road and Catastrophe Island and iterations and reimaginings of +James MacGeorge's Black Sun Deathcrawl. All that plus more good stuff.

Here’s a nice little teaser of Dead Planet for Mothership.
In a couple days, we're going to release the first module for #mothershipRPG, DEAD PLANET by +Donn Stroud, +FM Geist, and myself. +Jarrett Crader and Fiona did the editing as well and there's some killer art from Stephen Wilson in it as well. Here's the preview.

Since the release of #mothershipRPG at Origins, +Donn Stroud +FM Geist +Jarrett Crader and I busted ass to get out a module for Gen Con. We finished last night and send it to the printer this morning.

It’s called DEAD PLANET and it’s got 2 hexcrawls, 10 locations (one of which is 5 levels), 9 monsters, 6 major npcs, 20 tables (not including the 6 encounter tables), 10 maps, 23 illustrations, 48 pages.

I’m incredibly proud of the work everyone did on this, and in such an incredibly short time period. Here’s a sample of some of the spreads (and some gorgeous art by Stephen Wilson). We’ll have it at Gen Con and will release a PDF soon after. I hope y’all dig it.

A. It’s a tight little RPG.
B. It’s sci-fi horror.
C. I was involved but maybe that means I’m too close...
The PDF for #mothershipRPG is up at DriveThru. Also, at I've got the character sheets, ship sheets, a player cheat sheet, etc. I'll put putting up some free one-pagers also sometime next week.

Mothership at Origins.
Add a comment...

I’m going to Origins and can bring these to spare the cost of shipping (and they are heavy):

Whisper & Venom (straight thop Kickstarter reward) OSR
Death & Taxes ( thop’s big package) OSR

Can provide pics upon interest.
$140 but I am flexible.
