Patreon Supported Adventures - The Strange Case of Tobin Jakshyd

New adventure that went up on Patreon yesterday. If anyone remembers who I commissioned for the map please tell me so I can give proper credit.

The Strange Case of Tobin Jakshyd
A Swords & Wizardry Adventure for Characters of 3-6 level

Introduction

There always seems to be a place in any long game, a place where the adventure is done, the heroes have completed their tasks, saved the princess, and collected their pay. A place in a game where everyone just mills around, doing their shopping and the Referee is desperately trying to figure out how to introduce his flock to their next employer.

That is the purpose of the five-minute adventures. A simple, quick adventure that can take place anywhere in the Referee’s world urban or rural.

These adventures will not follow standard layout for adventures or modules as they are meant to be quickly copy-pasted from the Genius Loci Blog.

Good Luck and Enjoy!

Quick Note - Running in the Shadows must be popular

So I ordered the Shadowrun Beginner box last July since I've always been interested in the game and yet have (up until last MEPAcon) never played it. Today I got an e-mail from Amazon telling me they cannot "find" my order ... ouch. So, I opted for a cancel since I picked up the core book at MEPAcon for $15.00.

But if anyone is interested in the Shadowrun Beginner Box Set ">Beginner Box here you go!


Quick Note - Flights of Honor Updated

I recently did a review of the Ponyfinder race book "Flights of Honor".  In the review I was critical of the layout and formatting of the adventure. Since then the file has been updated and now feature a much better layout and the formatting is, as well, much improved.

Flights of Honor now benefits from modern modern layout design (meaning a persistent background image) and pretty much all the "white space" has been removed dropping the title down to the 10-page mark. All-in-all it is a rather pretty title at this point and easy on the eyes. The text reads comfortably well on the new background piece and the decrease in page count and white space makes reading both more quick and jittery.

With these corrections I'll amend the score to a 4 out of 5. As I've previously stated Ponies aren't my bag ... my bag has multi-national anti-terrorist groups and giant transforming robots ... but I did my best to review it with a objective mind.

Of special note: I g…

Kickstarter - Update and the AeroMasters of the Saragubi!

Wow! Three weeks down and 5 more to go and we've nearly reached the 50% mark! Once again thanks to everyone who has pledge to the Kickstarter you guys and gals have really inspired me and thanks just aren't enough. In the coming weeks as pre-existing funds allow I hope to showcase more artwork to the bullpen, samples and write-ups on locations, npcs, and new monsters as well as my own sketches that - if successful - will be handed of to the bullpen for their amazing professional treatments!

The AeroMasters are on of the many groups of people players may encounter on their journeys in the Saragubi Desert.

Quick Reviews - Ponyfinder Flights of Honor

I have a 4 and 9 year old who are obsessed with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I have watched this show with my girls a few times and have not hated it. That is about as much as I can rightly say about MLP. I don't understand Bronies or the near religious devotion some pay to the cartoon ... that said I received a copy of the new Ponyfinder book (essentially Pathfinder with MLP) and feel that since I got a copy for free I should at least read.

First for those that don't know, Ponyfinder is a Campaign setting using the Pathfinder rule set and has been converted to 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons. Technically the setting is a homage to Anthropomorphic fantasy with the main foundation being My Little Pony. From the Drivethrurpg page:
Adventure in the world of Everglow, nestled in delicate balance between the elemental planes. It is a world of magic and mystery, where the fey are in control and the humanoid races are secondary. Foremost of the fey are Ponykind, who rallied…

Patron-Supported Adventures - Return to the Yu-Ti

Return to the Yu-Ti is a new adventure for +matt jackson's Edge of Space setting/system and is a return to the SMC crew of the Sword of Hathor last seen in Horus Adrift.

This adventure was release two days ago to my Patrons who will be getting a cleaned up version at the end of January along side a map for the adventure.


Mission BackgroundThirty years ago during the Confederation Wars the MSS Yu-Ti vanished during the Battle of Nerif. Now the Confederation Space Corps has put together an expedition to the ice world of Nerif to locate the Yu-Ti and discover why the Mandarin controlled ship disappeared.

The Sword of Hathor has been dispatched to Nerif, the remains of the Mandarin archive loaded into it systems. It was hoped that the unique transmission codes of the Yu-Ti could be found using the archive. Three days ago a …
