Happy New Year and Last Call for Homebrew Creations!
I’m on vacation so this is a bit of a shorter update. Homebrew content is the theme of this month’s RPG Blog Carnival being hosted right here on this very blog. You’ve got one day left to get your submissions in. The exact theme is “Homebrew Holiday Gifts.” I’m asking bloggers everywhere to share their RPG creations for their favorite systems with me. At the end of the month I’ll make a list linking all participating blog posts so everyone can checkout the fine homebrew creations in one place. So get those entries in, friends! I can’t wait to see what you make.
If you missed it, there’s a new fifth edition adventure for level 20 PCs called Happy Holidays on the Free Game Resources section of the site. Santa‘s gone crazy and it’s up to the PCs to figure out why and put an end to his gifting of exploding coal. The adventure is complete with easy-to-print maps that can be brought into any virtual table. Check out the adventure for level 20 PCs.
Thank You for a Great Year!

Happy New Year to you too! I don’t PLAY the kind of games you are playing, but I use yours for inspiration for the play-by-post RPG I am leading. We are only writing an interactive story, with no stats and game features, but some of your ideas are useful in this environment as well! Thank you very much!
