WOSF!

April 24th, 2017

Just dropping this here, Old Skoolers… We owe you some details of all the fun we had at Gary Con Gaming Convention last month, and share some secrets on all of the new stuff we introduced – there was a VORPAL HARE that tore apart the party… AND… our unveiling of a new basic module THE CAVES OF UTTER CHAOS… AND… a vicious first run thru of the TOMB OF UTTER HORRORS… AND… that spiffy new character sheet you see peeking out from under the great WANDERING MINSTREL EYE (some of you might have met the WME at Gen Con 2016; he was the big baddy in our 99 LOW LEVEL ORCS event).

Thank you to those who sent me questions on add-ons and the ability to purchase Pittsburgh 68 (for those who did not back at the Double Feature level). I am working on these logistics and… (Read full backer update here.)

The Caves of Utter Chaos-GaryCon IX

March 21st, 2017

Fun and adventure await the brave heroes who dare to enter the Caves of Utter Chaos at Gary Con IX! A twisted take on Gary Gygax’s classic dungeon module, The Keep on the Borderlands, this event is also an introduction to the WEGS Old Skool Fantasy system. Inspired by the 1970s Basic Dungeons & Dragons rule set, WEGS keeps character creation a breeze and the heroic action epic. No experience is needed to join this dungeon party! Event info links below.

The Caves of Utter Chaos (WEGS BOSS)
When: Thurs @2pm; Fri @10am; Sat @10am and 2pm
You’ve heard of the Caves of Chaos, perhaps? Well, these are the caves below those caves that nobody dares to enter. Get ready for insane dungeoncrawling fun with the BOSS (Basic Old Skool System). Full-blown heroes will be created in minutes and then stuck in a dungeon brimming with terrible foes, nasty traps, and treasure galore. Fueled by 2d6 and 2d10, BOSS is a stripped down version of WEGS (the Wickedly Errant Game System). Fun rules! Wild dice rolls! Wicked adventure! All rules taught. Join us for one or more sessions if you like!

Beware the Ides of Horror!

March 15th, 2017

Greetings Shufflers! More exciting Roswell 51 news for you: we have placed the order for the dice that will be included in the game. In other words, “Alea iacta est!”. The die is cast. Or in our case, “the dice have been ordered”.

GMs March 4th!

March 4th, 2017

What are you doing for March 4th and GameMaster Day!?! We’re spending the day working on a new WEGS Old Skool mini-module called “The Tomb of Utter Horrors“, a deathtrap dungeon that pays homage to the grand-daddy of all deathtrap dungeons, Gary Gygax’s “Tomb of Horrors” (published by TSR in 1979).

Our deadly dungeon will be unveiled for the first time at the end of this month at the Gary Con Gaming Convention (March 23-26), a convention celebrating the work and influence of Gary Gygax. Gary Con is a truly awesome convention run by the Gygax family and located in Lake Geneva, WI (the birthplace of Dungeons & Dragons, TSR and Gen Con)! The weekend honors “a life well played”.

Our Gary Con event is titled “How Many Heroes Does It Take To Slay A Demi-Lich?” The answer to that question lies in the hands of the brave adventurers who dare to trespass into the Lich’s domain.

Roswell 51: Mid February Update

February 17th, 2017

A quick update on the status of the next exciting release in our Shuffling Horror line – Roswell 51! I am currently waiting for the printhouse to upload the final online file for my review/approval; this single file stands between us and our printed proofs. Here’s our remaining steps to production:

1. Review/approve the online proofs (electronic proofs).
2. Review/approve the printed proofs (physical proofs).
3. Greenlight the game into production.

The first two steps rely on the printer’s timeline, the third step is the manufacturer’s timeline. At this point in the project, we are subject to their schedules. For more info on our production status, I have been posting all backer updates on our Roswell 51 project page. I will continue to post our interim updates there.
