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.

Appendix N and Delving Deeper Update

Appendix N Kickstarter and Subscription:

It has taken me a few months longer than I expected to finish the first Appendix N shipment. I was further behind in the shipping than I thought. But in the process, I have been able thoroughly clean up my shipping lists and have standardized the way that I ship. I know that does not sound like anything substantial in a project this far behind. But I intend to prove it by sending out another module to you very quickly and with complete transparency through every step, from the beginning to end. And that is the next step I am taking in fulfilling the print rewards of this project. Once that is done, I will turn my attention to the final print rewards.

As of right now, only some folks in the $30 pledge level and those who purchased a subscription still need their first shipment sent. For those who ended up being last in this first shipment, I will make it up to them in the next shipment along with everyone who pledged extra for shipping.

Delving Deeper Boxed Sets:

I have four folks who have let me know they never received their boxed set. If you have not received your boxed set either, please email me or use the contact form on the right and I will get it out to you very quickly. I now have all of my publishing equipment and stock at my new location. I also have plenty of 2nd shipment packages I am shipping out (contain the dice, card stock map of Blackmarsh and perfect bound, single- volume version of Delving Deeper's current rules. Please let me know if you need one of them as well.

Again, thank you for your great patience with me and I hope to provide you with lots a great gaming material (most for free) in 2016 as I work to make things right on my end.

Next Update: X-plorers and Dagger
