Great news for our company! A select group of RPG publishers has started a new download store, and now Tabletop Adventures is also going to participate. It's going to take a few days to get our catalog uploaded, but we're very pleased for the opportunity to have a small part in this new venture.
It has begun! Tabletop Adventures is pleased to announce that we have joined TableTop Library and that all our electronic products will soon be available there. We have a start already with our most popular product, "Bits of the Boulevard," as well as the classic "Bits of Darkness: Dungeons" and "Bits of Darkness: Caverns." Also included so far is the 3.5E version of "Shards of the Heart," an NPC product. More will be added as time permits until our entire catalog is present and accounted for.

We are pleased to have the opportunity to join this great new store and are excited about future possibilities there. Check out our new page today!

The January Warlock's Journal Contest is going on now! In fact, the entry deadline is Saturday, Jan. 23rd. This month has a new sponsor: Solo Roleplayer. The challenge is to describe a "Wandering Traveler," which the site explains like this:

"Are they the same person, or are they different persons?
"All that is known about them is they come into a troubled situation alone, maybe bringing along a friend, and leave soon after the situation has been solved.
"They’re different ages, sex, races, and personalities. One thing remains the same: an unadorned iron bracelet on their left wrist."

The prize is a bundle of roleplaying products, and there's even a small prize just for entering. More information is at the Solo Roleplayer website. Get an entry in soon!

Scrawlloween Day 31: dragon

The villagers marched out with torches and wooden stakes, holy symbols and holy water. They had finally resolved to “do something” about the stranger in their village, upon whom they blamed all the weird things that had happened in the past year. They held him somehow responsible for animals disappearing without a trace from flock and herd; or other animals found hanging from trees, dead and with the blood drained out of them but not a drop on the ground. Finally they blamed him for the recent disappearances of people near the village.

Rumor had the stranger sacrificing the missing animals to demons, or being a demon and eating them himself. Then gossip had him a vampire, draining blood from animals to avoid the notice he would get leaving dead bodies around town. The stories became even wilder when people disappeared; though no two gave the same motivation, all agreed the stranger was behind it all.

Stragglers joined as they made their way to the edge of town, and a mob arrived at the door determined to discover the truth of the situation – or at least the truth as they saw it. The brother of the village’s missing headman pounded on the door.

“Come out! Show yourself and face justice!”

The door opened and a slender man in a black cloak came out, leaving the door open. Behind him inside the cottage a bright fire burned in the hearth. The man had black hair and pale skin and stood only about five and a half feet tall. “What can I do for you, neighbors?” he asked mildly.

“Show yourself!” came the cry from the crowd.

“Aye, your true self!” another shouted.

Then the mob was loud with shouts. “Stop this trickery!” “Show your true self!” “Stop the killing!”

“What do you think I am, if this is not my true self?” the stranger asked, with a bit of an edge to his voice.

“A vampire!” cried one, and got many shouts of agreement.

“A demon!” shouted others, and some nodded with them.

Finally the leader held up his hands for quiet, and the mob let the noise die to a murmur. “What do you have to say for yourself? Tell us what you truly are,” he demanded.

The man stood silently for a moment and then began to speak in his quiet voice. “You accuse me of many things. What if I had the power to do what you suggest? Suppose that I killed the animals that disappeared, and then later the ones who were bled. What if I had learned that without the animals, some families were going to go hungry over the winter? Perhaps by bleeding the animals and then hanging them, I was doing my best to leave the meat for the village!”

The stranger’s voice seemed to have grown deeper as he was talking, and his silhouette against the fire behind him looked taller and broader than it was a few minutes before.

“As for those who disappeared, why do you care? If I took them, I took the drunkard and the good-for-nothing, or I took the bully who made life hard for everyone. His own wife and brother wanted him gone!” Now the stranger stared at the mob’s leader in challenge, and looked down on the tall man. “If I took them, they were selected by your own mouths as useless, and not worth the effort to feed them!”

The mob seemed slightly less certain than it had been, but the villagers still cried out. “Show us your true self!”

“On your own heads be it!” the stranger cried, his voice deep, and slowly he began to grow. “I’ve kept this form for months for your sakes, so I could consume just the blood and save the meat for you, so no one would go hungry! I took only those villagers you all agreed should be gone. I’m tired of living as a puny human! Behold my ‘true self’!”

At this, the stranger (who was by now at least eight feet tall) changed greatly. In a handful of seconds his neck and shoulders elongated and stretched up, topped by a lizard-like head with spear-tips for teeth, while his body thickened and pushed backward. The cottage was smashed as powerful hindquarters suddenly occupied the place it once stood. The spread cape grew and grew into wide black wings, gleaming in the night. Purplish-black scales on the underbelly reflected the light from the torches. The mob was stunned into silence, and then the screaming began. The dragon roared.

“I am as you see me, Rextorius the Black, and I am very hungry!”
