I saw a preview of this kickstarted yesterday if you are into the DCC Zine scene this will be handy kickstarted.
 
Today at noon we launch our first Kickstarter, The Zine Vault.

Here's a preview for the community.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1462075846/168969231?token=91008531

I shared this yesterday with those who subscribed to our newsletter via our website. Now we'd like your feedback.

We're launching at noon, so on the day it closes, we'll have the morning for a final push towards our goal.

Thanks for having a look!
Carl Bussler is raising funds for The Zine Vault on Kickstarter! The Zine Vault is a better way to store, organize, and transport your growing zine collection, plus dice, pencils, and more.

Very excited to be part of this.  +Gamerati is starting up a Monthly RPG Game day at Stonegate Restaurant and Bar in Tacoma,WA. The establishment has a private area upstairs that are letting use for the game from Noon to 2 AM when the bar closes.  The first one will of course be Free RPG Day so after getting your free stuff come over Stonegate and play.  I'll be Judging a Dungeon Crawl Classic 0 Level funnel and +Joey Turco is DMing 5th Edition.  We are in the process of finding other GM's.  Please share with all your friends in the South Puget Sound so can fill the place up.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month Stonegate Pizza is letting us use their room upstairs for an epic time of RPGs. This is a 21 and over event. Anyone who would like to play please leave a comment saying what game you'd like to be a part of and when you can make it. If you'd like to GM please let me know via email at [masked]. Tell me what game you'd like to run, what time you'll be running, and how many players maximum can join.  (and a little blur...

I've had better luck in Tacoma and Redmond. Though I got a physical copy of marvel heroic to go with my civil war book. Also took some west end game stuff.

Just read through Stormlord Publishing's Black Powder, Black Magic: Vol 1 great little adventure path done in a style of a fanzine.  The Alternate History/Secret History Wild West makes for an interesting supernatural setting.  Firearm rules are simple and straight forward. The occupations for the zero level funnel are good and bring lots of interesting backgrounds to the 0 Level funnel adventure.  Lately many of the RPG books I read go directly to the shelf this one will go into the pile of man I really want to get this to a table.  Thanks +Eric Hoffman and +Carl Bussler for a great read and why don't you have a Stormlord Publishing page?   

My next RPG read is the Treasure Vaults of Zadabad which I picked up with Black Powder, Black Magic
A zine of six-guns and sorcery. This debut issue sets the stage and introduces your players to the Dark Territories.

I really enjoyed this article especially this part Be willing to accept that someone else doesn’t share your viewpoint. Respect that viewpoint if you can. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Maybe people are accidental assholes. It happens.

excuse my language :)

I'll honestly say that is good post with lots of good points.   There are times where I accidentally am an asshole.   And then there are days where I am an occasional asshole.   

The occasional bit happens when life factors flow against me and I allow that anger/frustration to bubble up and flow out.   It should never happen but it does.   I'm human.   If people hold it against me, so be it.

I just posted about a RPG Game day that the +Gamerati is setting up in Tacoma.  There is also a Boardgame game day on the 2nd Saturday of every month in Puyallup. +Gamerati has teamed up with the People Who Like Meeples.  I've been going to the PWLM events for the last year and have enjoyed them.  There is a great group of people with some very cool games getting played.

With Sword & Wizardry Appreciation Day just past I thought it was time to read the copy I picked up a couple years ago. I ended up with a first edition of the game from 2010 or at least that is how the front of the book reads.

The rules are clean and easy to follow. Reading it brought back memories of the hacked version of B/X and 1st edition we played.

These rules are much more streamlined then the hack together rules. Props for only one Save Vs. chart and giving the option of ascending or descending armor classes. I could see running some of the adventures I have picked up over the years using these rules.

You can pick up the PDF for free now.  A stretch goal on a kickstarter made this possible.  At 144 pages with a monster section and a spell section this book is really actually very streamlined for what it contains.
