You may already have seen James V West's stunning new zine Black Pudding. If not head over to RPGNow.com and grab the PWYW PDF. It is quite simply the best zine ever.
A few of days ago I tentatively asked James about his plans for a printed edition, and mentioned that I'd be interested in getting involved. I'm delighted to report that he's agreed to let me print and distribute Black Pudding. The A5 printed edition will be litho-printed on paper of the same weight and finish as The Black Hack and Oubliette Issue 9. I'm expecting them to be delivered just before Christmas. Cover price will be £3.00 and they'll be a wholesale option for orders of 10+ copies. At launch there will be shipping options for the UK/EU/Rest of the World.
P.S. I've had a bit of a break from gaming projects over the last few months, but plan to come back to them with lots of fresh ideas for 2017. I'll also have a stand at Dragonmeet in London on Saturday 3rd December.
Squarehex will have a stand at the UK Games Expo this weekend (Stand D29). Here's a copy of our price list flyer. We've got a wide range of items and some of them are limited to just one or two copies. We can't reserve items so if you want something very badly please get to us early.
With the Kickstarter rewards all now posted, I'm releasing print edition of The Black Hack for general sale. If you missed out on the Kickstarter or grabbed a PDF but would like a print copy of The Black Hack, you may find all the print items here:
The Black Hack is a streamlined OSR RPG by David Black that is currently live on Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1730454032/the-black-hack I was going to write a series of blog posts this week to show some of the mechanics of The Black Hack. However, David has put together a couple of preview pages that collate some key rules and give a much better idea of how the system works. They also serve as a preview of how the rule book interior is laid out.
Yesterday I launched a new Kickstarter campaign. It is for an OSR RPG called The Black Hack written by David Black. It is not to be confused with my own B/X Retroclone RPG FOSSIL which is still in development, but nevertheless I'm sure it will still be of interest to many of you.
Here's some blurb about it:
The Black Hack is a super-streamlined roleplaying game that uses the Original 1970s Fantasy Roleplaying Game as a base, and could well be the most straightforward modern OSR compatible clone available. If speed of play and character creation, compatibility, and simple - yet elegant rules are what you yearn for. Look no further!
The project hit its funding goal in just 12 hours and as I type has just past its second Stretch Goal. Here's a link to the project page:
Over the next few weeks while the campaign is running I will be writing a series of blog posts that look at some of the mechanics used in the system. There is also plenty of discussion on Google+ where the game's creator David Black is always happy to answer questions about his game.
