Project Oasis Now Available

I’m very pleased to announce that the latest BRW Games title, Project Oasis, is now available at RPGNow.com.

Project Oasis is a gonzo kitchen-sink post-apocalyptic campaign setting. It contains a complete overview of 30th century North America, including new creatures and equipment for both the Mutant Future™ and Apes Victorious™ games, more than a hundred adventure hooks, plus a giant poster map.

There are out-of-control artificial intelligences, mutant cyborg conspiracies, radioactive dinosaurs with cybernetic mounted energy weapons, clones, self-contained arcologies, high-tech enclaves working towards civilization (or conquest), and of course apes, all set in a post-Devastation landscape a thousand years in the future.

The guidebook is 36 pages and includes a huge full-color poster map of 30th century North America.

Golden Scroll of Justice now available

The Golden Scroll of Justice lets you bring your old-school RPG into a whole new world of wuxia/kung fu action based on Chinese mythology, history, and folklore. The book contains:

  • Two new PC races: the shanxiao (monkey-man) and gouren (dog-man)
  • Two new character classes: the wu and the fangshi, along with guidelines on how to use your existing classes in a mythic China setting
  • Hundreds of new spells
  • Rules for kung fu that fit seemlessly into the existing combat and skill system, but still allows for cool “cinematic” moves
  • New weapons and armor
  • New magic items
  • New monsters
  • And much more!

The rules are designed to be completely modular; take what you like, leave what you don’t. Want fangshi and gouren but not the kung fu system? No problem. Everything will still work fine. And it’s compatible with just about every old-school RPG out there. You can find the book here, available in softcover, hardcover, and pdf. And as always, the hard copies come with the pdf version at no additional cost.

Darker Paths 3: The Demonolater now available!

And now, just in time for the festive Halloween season, a new addition to the Darker Paths line of evil character classes, the Demonolater.

Demonolaters are priests who serve demon lords and ladies. The character class is a sub-class of cleric, but each demon lord has priests with special powers and spells, nearly 40 of which are included (with names like dark offering, invite possession, and warp reality).

This supplement also includes rules for demonic pacts and statistics for the demon lord Dagon and his minions, the dreaded carcharo demons.

You can buy the Demonolater on its own for just $4.25, or if you’ve been holding out for a collection of all three Darker Paths books (the Necromancer, the Witch, and now the Demonolater), you can get a bundle for just $9.95 (that’s 30% off the individual price!).

More Adventures Dark and Deep Video Reviews

Seems that someone really likes Adventures Dark and Deep! Keegan Reid has posted two reviews on his YouTube channel, one for the Players Manual and one for the Game Masters Toolkit, that are positively gushing. 🙂 Please do take a look, and subscribe to his channel. Lots of other interesting stuff in there as well.

I just love that years after they’re published, folks are still discovering the Adventures Dark and Deep books and getting this excited about what they see. Really, really makes it all worthwhile.

Kickstarter announcement – Golden Scroll of Justice

And the big announcement concerning the Kickstarter for The Golden Scroll of Justice, my upcoming mythic China/Wuxia sourcebook for old-school RPGs is…

There will be no Kickstarter.

A funny thing happened when I ran the numbers while I was preparing for the Kickstarter of this book. I realized I didn’t need the money to make it happen. Sales of Adventures Dark and Deep and Castle of the Mad Archmage have been good enough that I don’t need to go to the fans beforehand to make the next book happen.

I’m a firm believer that Kickstarter should be used to help create things that could not otherwise be created. Not as a pre-order platform, not to gauge public response to a product. I pride myself that, if I don’t need to go to the Kickstarter well, I don’t go. That’s what I did with the Game Masters Toolkit, and that’s what I’m able to do with Golden Scroll of Justice.

So… the planned release date is still by the end of this year. Hmmm… that’ll be just in time for Christmas. How convenient!
