I am deeply sadden that Google has chosen to close down the very awesome G+. It was always too nerdy for the mainstream, but those that invested the time in the platform (like myself and others here), it brought great things.

I can't tell you how how much you collection of weirdos have meant to me, but be assured that is A LOT.

Whenever I needed a fix of weird art, G+ never once failed me.

When I wanted to publish RPG stuff, G+ was incredibly supportive.

No other platform will take the place of this thing.

Connect with me on Twitter (@taskboy3000), but know that I blast a lot of political posts there (which I tried hard never to do here). I will always have http://taskboy.com/ around, so you can find additional contact info there.

I hope that I can soon announce the publication of a card game I have been working on this year, so there is that.

Take care.

For the record, I am unlikely to join another social media site. I am an active consumer of RSS feeds, so I will be on the hunt for those.

Sweet giveaways. You know you want some.
Labyrinth Lord Core Rule Book Give Away

Hey guys. To thank +Joe Johnston for promoting me from moderator to now owner of the Labyrinth Lord G+ community, I would like to do something to give back to this great community.

As such, I will be giving away a branch new, physical copy of the Labyrinth Lord Core Rule Book to a lucky G+ member.

If you would like to enter into this contest there are two things you need to do. The first and most important it to SHARE this post to your public G+ profile. The second is to comment in this thread as to what your favorite thing about Labyrinth Lord is.

I will randomly draw a winner only from those who do the two things above. Drawing will take place on Tuesday June 12, 2018.

Good luck....

All,

As he has been doing all the work for a while now, I'm handing this channel over to +Antonio Bravo. I will still poke my head in as needed.

May all your rolls be natural 20s.

Cheers.

Too good not to share.

This is a beekeeper's outfit from the 1600s. It is on display at Plimouth Plantation.

When people buy a hardcopy of my stuff, it makes me happy.

It's not about the money (the margins are thin), but that I know people will get a pretty thing to dream on.

At least, that's why I buy RPG books.

Why is How to Hexcrawl Pay What You Want?

1. It is a primarily a rules clarification of material from Labyrinth Lord in consultation with Molvay/Cook's B/X rules. I intended no plagarism, but there is little actually new content there (aside from some of the getting lost rules) that I personally contributed

2. The art work was nearly all public domain, with contributions from +Dyson Logos

3. The final manuscript was vetted by the Labyrinth Lord Google + community

4. I want this material in as many people's hands as possible. The wilderness rules are confusing to many and I hope I can reduce the confusion a bit

While I put a lot of time into this project, much of it comes from the work of other people. I would feel dirty charging real money for a product under those circumstances.

I do keep threatening to write another volume of these rules that greatly expands on what is presented here. That will involve not just more free time than I currently have, but somewhere between $1000 - $2000 dollars in production costs.


So do grab a copy of Hexcrawl if you haven't. Money is always appreciated, but leaving a written review on rpgnow.com is even more helpful.
