Yep, did the same thing: that $50 vanished pretty quickly. :)

And Raven-Crowking’s advice is excellent. (As always).

PSG: The Crypt in Cadaver Canyon Kickstarter!

https://purplesorcerer.com/images/crypt_ks2.jpg I can’t believe it’s been almost two and a half years since we published our last Purple Sorcerer Games adventure: so I’m thrilled to announce that the next adventure in Mark Bishop’s ‘Nebin Pendlebrook’ line of adventures, The Crypt in Cadaver Canyon...

Re: Weird dice.

I live in Brazil, and here it's close to impossible to get the weird dice. It's very difficult to buy online because it gets extremmely expensive. So I wanted to know if someone has a 3d model for a 3d printer. As a complete 3D printing novice, I'd be interested to hear if folks have had success pr...

Re: too political for GFA?

I acknowledge that an adventure of a political nature could be offputting to some, and as such I'll publish this on my own if I get it developed to that point and feel that its worth sharing, that way all blame/praise will be upon me and not a group of myself and others. Thanks again for everyone's...

So if the core book is Step 1, can anyone offer some recommendations for Step 2…? As other has stated, there really is no step two: it’s a tenant of Joseph Goodman that everything needed is in the core book, and that happily remains true! However, as you’ve noticed, there is an incredibly creative ...

Re: NPC exposition and endless flavor text

I agree with Stephen that keeping it brief is best. (If the player's basic motivations can't be summed up in a couple of paragraphs, things likely need reworking). But you can certainly provide more background to the judge, and then have this info revealed to the players piecemeal throughout the tex...

Re: Print version importance

They all 'work' fantastically, but the fourth printing does have quite a few additional pieces of art. (Adding to the absurd amount of cool images in the other printings).

Re: Purple Sorcerer games question

Each of the adventures do stand alone, but it certainly can't hurt to have Perils to help streamline starting any of the adventures.

Send me your RPGNow email address to info (at) purplesorcerer (dot) com, and I'll send you a Perils download code to tide you over until GenCon. ;)

Re: Perilous Pantry as a First-level adventure

I'm guessing 6 first level characters should work just about right as is, especially if you're tweaking the danger level as you go. I would judge how the first fight goes, and adjust all the early encounters accordingly. The two big battles toward the end is where you'll need to stay on your feet. T...
