This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Mystara Player's Guide Print on Demand available now for free

A month after the guide went live, I've finally reformatted the book to be friendlier with the POD sites.  When I noticed the downloads for the version with nipples and blood vs the PG version was downloaded 95% to 5%, I dropped the PG version and just went with the N&B version.  Fixed several issues and adjusted margins and other settings to maximize ease for people who wanted a physical copy.  As it's fan creation I can't sell it, and because it's not Forgotten Realms, Eberron or Ravenloft can't put it on the Guild.  So instead I have to give it away and hope you like it enough to help me get art for the DM's Guide.  It's set in 1000AC instead of 1010AC because that's what players wanted.  Be honest, as much as we go nostalgic for TSR, nobody liked the Nuke Phase.  Enjoy and spread the word please.

Hell yeah! I've left 5E to go back to the RC, but I'm still really looking forward to reading this.

Love your videos, dude!

I sent you a private message, regarding the players handbook. Let me know if you got it, looks great btw. I still can't get over samurai cats on the moon. I was a bit surprised on the shadow elves, i actually really like them. Their appearance was a shocker because the first time I saw them was in Shadows over Mystara the arcade game they released for consoles.

I do have to ask, do most people actually consider magic is powered by a giant nuclear reactor as canon or is it more complicated than that.

I've got a lot of different names depending on what you're reading. Since I write on a variety of subjects I use a different name depending on the topic. But I do appreciate the recognition
