Appendix N Kickstarter Update #100

Today's Kickstater Update:

Hey Folks, 
Just a quick update today. I will have a more detailed one in a couple weeks.
I am currently sending out the second shipment to everyone who pledged extra for shipping. Next week, I begin sending out the second shipment to everyone in the $31/30 pledge levels. 
The second shipment has already gone out to everyone in the $200, $101/$100 and $50 pledge levels. It may take another week or so for some international shipments to reach their destination. 
Thank you for your support and your great patience.
- John

Hey folks,

For some reason, the permanent redirect to this blog is no longer operating. I have contacted my hosting service to see what it wrong. I still own the site and have paid hosting for the entire year.

Appendix N Adventures:
The last remaining first shipments to Kickstarter and subscription folks are on their way. I have started the second shipment. This one will be far quicker and completely transparent. More details are in my April 2 Kickstarter update.

Dagger: Toolkit for Gaming with Kids:
My revision of the Dagger Toolkit for Kids is almost completed. In order to make it distinct from Jimm Johnson's version (which is designed for use with B/X), I have incorporated my tweaks and made Dagger compatible with 5th Edition, but still easily useable with any edition and DCC rpg. Indeed, nearly any module or adventure can be converted right at the gaming table during play. I just need to tidy up the text, add some more monsters to the bestiary, and get a final edit. This toolkit for gaming with kids is just four pages of text, including a small bestiary. The Referee's Screen contains many of the rules, but also quick adventure design tools, and more simple conversion guidelines.

If there is anything BHP still owes you, please contact me using the contact form below to the right.

Great post on rolling dice!

Daniel Bishop (Raven Crow King Blog) has a great post about rolling dice in rpg games. He expands a bit upon the way we are invited to roll dice in the Dungeon Crawl Classics rpg, but it is good advice for most roleplay gaming.

Great Post on Original Edition Thief

Zenopus Archives has a great blog post about Gary Gygax's early d6 HD OD&D Thief as well as one of his great Reference Sheets for download.

Simon Bull created the Delving Deeper Optional Thief using much of this early Thief.
Check it out.
