New Year’s Sale Going on Now!

BRW Games end-of-year sale! From now through New Year’s Day, you’ll get 20% off every pdf. That’s less than a buck for character classes like the Mountebank, and less than twelve for the Adventures Dark and Deep Bestiary. Say goodbye to 2018 and hello to some great bargains!

New website!

As you’ve probably already noticed, we’ve got a snazzy new website!

Hope you find it easier to get around and more useful in general. We’ve made the change to accommodate some great new stuff that’s coming up soon.

See you at GaryCon!

Just a reminder – next weekend we’ll be at GaryCon for the first time (woo-hoo!). Look for the BRW Games table in the dealer’s room, and there will also be sessions of Castle of the Mad Archmage on Friday and Saturday nights (both are sold out, sorry!).

Do stop by and say hi, if you’re in the neighborhood!

Stretch Goal!

One of my fans has suggested that I set a stretch goal to come out with a print edition of one of my earlier adventures, Bitterbark’s Circus. The Circus is a mirthfully malevolent place, and can also be used as an expansion for Castle of the Mad Archmage (Level 11, Area 34, for those keeping track). Up until now, it’s only been available in pdf format.

However, if we break $4,500 on the Musicland Kickstarter, making a print version of the adventure will be bumped to the top of the priority list, and will almost certainly be available by the time Musicland is. Backers of this Kickstarter at any level will also receive a coupon for a 25% discount on the print version of Bitterbark’s Circus if we hit the stretch goal (and all print versions include the pdf, too!).

Adventures Dark and Deep Class pdfs

I’ve gotten a bunch of inquiries about putting out stand-alone versions of the new classes and sub-classes in Adventures Dark and Deep:

  • Bard
  • Jester
  • Mystic
  • Mountebank
  • Savant

Well, after a bit of work, that request is now a reality. All of the “new” classes in Adventures Dark and Deep, based on the outlines that Gary Gygax made in various places online and in Dragon Magazine, are now available as stand-alone pdf files.

In those files, you’ll find the full class description, as well as every spell available to that class.

I see this as being of interest to three different types of people:
Those who are playing one of these classes, and want a handy reference guide at the table. Rather than flipping through the whole Players Manual to get your spells and abilities, it’s all in one convenient place.
Those who want to add a particular class to their Old School game. Want to have mountebanks in your Labyrinth Lord game? Now you can, without having to even invest in the whole Curious Volume of Forgotten Lore book.
Those who are curious about Adventures Dark and Deep, but want to get more of a feel for how the game is laid out and rules handled, without having to plunk down a bunch of cash sight unseen.

And the price? Each one is a buck. You want them all? You only pay $4 for five of them. A twenty percent discount.

It’s admittedly an experiment, but I know if I was playing the game, having a class-specific mini-handbook would be really convenient.

Here are all the links:

The Bard Class
The Jester Class
The Mystic Class
The Mountebank Class
The Savant Class
The Adventures Dark and Deep Class Bundle (20% discount!)

Personally, the mountebank is my favorite. Which one is yours? Sound off in the comments.

Enjoy!

Musicland Kickstarter Update

In response to several inquiries, a new reward level has been added; the Musicland Standard Edition, for those who want to get the book in print, but missed out on the limited edition print version.

This new reward level will include a standard POD version of the book, plus the pdf. You’ll need to pay the cost of printing and shipping when you collect your reward from RPGNow / DriveThruRPG. The print cost has been factored into the reward level, and the total will come out to around US$10 plus shipping.

So if you chose the pdf-only version and want to upgrade for only a few bucks more, now’s your chance!
