It’s time to re-visit The Smoking Wyrm! The second issue of the DCC Zine Tales From The Smoking Wyrm is now a part of the ZineQuest 2 promotion through Kickstarter!
The premise behind the zine has it set at an inn where all manner of beings come and go, and adventure of all sorts can be found through the stories told at the hearth and bar of said establishment.
The second issue of the zine offers another heaping helping of the same sort of material found in the first. Here’s what they state on their Kickstarter page:
The second issue will contain seven features, usable by both players and judges! Each article will be featured in greater detail in future Kickstarter updates so you have a good sense of what you will be getting, but here is a short list:
- King of Beasts as Patron—Bonding with the wild side gives you distinct advantages!
- Dwarven Jäger—A subclass of dwarf with a very useful skillset.
- Ritual Magic, Part II—A close-up look at several rituals aimed at those of religious bent. Want to know why unholy creatures burst into flames when they cross the threshold into holy ground—this will tell you, along with other mysteries.
- Culpepper’s Herbal—More herbs for your game. We continue building out an herbal catalog that all adventurers can take advantage of, even in the darkest of times.
- The Shoggoth—A classic monster from deep in our adventuring subconscious finally flexes its full muscles! Also includes a Find Familiar spell for Cthulhu cultists to gain Shoggoth familiars!
- Wyrm Words—A crossword puzzle of all the Gygaxian words in the second issue—this way, a definition is never in doubt!
- Onward Retainer—Starring the Legion—The second installment of an adventuring comic in the old school style
As you can see, there is no shortage of material being offered in the second volume. And that’s just the standard plan. There are plenty of stretch goals to expand the floorplan of this zine! Help them reach them all.
So if you want to be in on the ground floor—it IS an inn, after all—then you need to head over to the Tales From The Smoking Wyrm Kickstarter page and pledge your support today!
