Hey Guys!

 I've been meaning to get this community up and going for some time now, so sorry for the delay! My intent is to not clog up the DCC community so much, and use this space to show new art, but more importantly to bounce ideas off of those who are interested.
 Dark Trails is my follow up to Carnival of the Damned. I swore I'd never try another adventure so dense, and here I am making something that could print heavy enough to kill your least favorite player, should you strike him in the head!
 The carnival was never intended to be published, and at most I'd hoped it would be a fanzine. I take the same approach with Dark Trails. It's not a guaranteed project, but I'm currently playtesting it, and paying for art as I can afford it. 
 Please chime in and voice your opinion when I ask for it when dealing with new rules and your thoughts on potential ideas! It means more than you know!

Thanks,

Dave

So on last Friday evening, I ran Terror in Galveston for four of my friends. They each made four level zero characters. It was my first time running Dark Trails. We had lots of whiskey and beers that we all took a part of. The adventure was fun. My players were not amused by getting killed by two random encounters of a large giant crab, and six jackalopes. I think my downfall as the judge was that I allowed them to buy any guns or dynamite they wanted. They bought a bunch of dynamite and it was the way they destroyed the last encounter. All of my players had a great time and I feel like I could easily run it again. They all wanted to play again with their surviving characters. They are all looking forward to trying out the classes. +David Baity

Hey folks! I'm long overdue for an update to let you know what's been going on the last several months. I apologize for the silence, but in this case, it's not such a bad thing. I've been working hard on getting the book wrapped up and feel confident that it'll be finished by end of the year. It may be a little sooner, but I've been throwing a lot of 12-14 hour days into things and can taste that last page, lol!

I can tell you that, as the book is coming together I'm starting to get a little worried that it's going to be too big. I just wrapped up laying in the combat chapter and it's already weighing in at 200+ pages. Magic is the next (I'm following the same chapter found in the DCC rulebook for familiarity) chapter and involves plugging in around 200 DCC styled spells. This will probably take it to 400-500 pages, which is getting scary big. The good news is the remaining chapters are what I like to call "skinnies", chapters that have a minimum of work to complete, meaning I will hopefully meet that deadline!

I haven't posted much in the way of art and that's been intentional. Don't think I've stopped buying art though! I've been adding a piece here and there and will give you this eerie addition by Simon Todd . Here we find a poor cowpoke that ran afoul of a curse slinging cultist that's left him craving banana flavored whiskey (no jabs at me for my love of chocolate whiskey, guys!). Simon has really added some wonderful work to help Dark Trails be a real treat to look at.

On the Con front I'll be attending Gamehole and running three games of Dark Trails. Please come by and say hello, and be on the lookout for a pretty redhead dressed to stun in authentic Western attire. She'll be handing out the latest additions to the swag collection, so be sure and tell her "hi" and demand your Dark Trails loot! I'll also have a few t-shirts on hand if anyone in attendance would want one! To be sure you get the size you want drop me a PM! Shirts are $20 any size and help pay for art.

Found this in the jewelry aisle of Michaels and it just screamed Dark Trails to me. Not sure who the actual target market was for a bird skull over bat wings. Painted it with my new favorite thing, oxidizing paint. Might go on a Dark Trails themed dice tower or even a hand stitched copy of Dark Trails as soon as Dave gets it finished.

Signed in the blood of the Cthulhu cowboy himself, which makes it extrey offishull and such! Gamehole is locked and loaded.

Thanks for a great time at NTRPGCon! My son and I had a great time playing Dark Trails, and we can't wait for what comes next for the project.

(Sorry about being so wrong about the end time of the Thursday afternoon session, I ripped you off of an extra hour of game time. :( )

Last call for those attending NTRPG wanting some official Dark Trails cotton. If you want a shirt they're $20 (2XL/3XL are $22). I need to know before I pack the saddle bags.

Hey folks! It's been an insane month for me in more ways than one. Work ain't exactly good these days, and Wayne Con scrambled my brain in a good way. I'm still re-working the existing material and adding new meat to the stew as I make my way through. I did receive a great piece of art from David Hoskins, who has a wonderfully disturbing imagination, perfectly suited for Dark Trails! You can check out his website at www.davidhoskins.com
