Support the New DCC Third Party Publisher Kickstarter for Tales from the Smoking Wyrm No. 6!

Tales from the Smoking Wyrm is back with a sixth installment!

Shot out of the gates with a fully-funded Kickstarter comes Blind Visionary Publications with the next issue of Tales from the Smoking Wyrm! Issue Number 6 is packed with articles and extras, a new class, patron, missions, herbals, artifacts, and rules for using BVP’s new online Tentacular Nest Generator!

As part of the Kickstarter, BVP is offering its new online tool at a low one-time cost — the Tentacular Nest Generator, essentially an on-the-fly mini-dungeon creator! Read the full description in the Kickstarter campaign to find out more about this easy to use dungeon generator, but signing up now grants evergreen and unlimited access to all future BVP website generators!

All this plus a ton of add-ons and potential stretch goal unlocks, and an Early Bird bonus for all backers within the first 48 hours (that’s now!) in the form of two cool drinks coasters.

Tales from the Smoking Wyrm is a fanzine inspired not just by the roleplaying game Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC), but also by the wondrous fanzines of the past 40 years! While it focuses on DCC, the material produced can be easily translated into any Old School Renaissance (OSR) system, or even Fifth Edition Fantasy! Back the Print + PDF version, or PDF only version, as you choose.

The sixth issue contains ten features, usable by both players and judges:

  • Tentacular Nest Generator (article)—a complete set of tables to develop a tentacular nest in just minutes! Your groups can experience the dangers of being hunted by tentacular youth on their home turf no matter what their level. This grind house/killer maze will put your party to the test as they try to avoid being murder-hoboed by young tentacular eager to consume their souls! Requires use of the tentacular adversary generator found in Tales from the Smoking Wyrm issue 3 for fullest effect!
  • Example Tentacular Nest—a pull out from this issue—a complete tentacular nest, ready for you to torture your players with! Contained in a custom pocket.
  • Soul Eater Class—Soul Eaters are a new class of people who consume magic, internalize it, and can use it to their advantage! Want to play the Soul Eater? Don’t forget the Soul Eater character class double-sided character sheet in the add-ons!
  • Patron Missions: Cthulhu—Now a regular feature while we fill out all the patrons so you can provide some quid pro quo love! Seven great Cthulhu patron missions, ready for your adherent to carry out as they ask for greater power from this outer worldly monstrosity imprisoned below the sea! Complete with details for the judge, and rewards for the player!
  • Cullpepper’s Herbal—More herbs for your game!  This time, we feature two herbs: Alexanders and Barberry. Make the most of the wilderness you travel through!
  • Nekromilo’s Bauble—This artifact updates the Fist of Emirikol to DCC standards, outlining the powers such an ancient artifact can bring to the table, and introducing the struggle between Nekromilo and Emirikol. Now updated to a d30—you too can wield awesome power! But beware—opposing forces stand ever-vigilant to steal such power! And check out the stretch goals—we are giving away the font we created for the d30 symbols for FREE once we hit a certain number of backers!
  • Dwarven Luck—We explore the luck of dwarves, introducing new ways dwarves can use the luck mechanic to provide increasing species differences between those who toil beneath the earth and other characters.
  • Onward Retainer, starring the Legion—The sixth installment of our adventuring comic in an old school style, brought to you by Joel Phillips! Tension mounts for our plucky band in this 2-page installment!
  • Coordinated Efforts—A short article that outlines how we house-rule helping others. Easy to introduce into your own games—push that dice chain by helping someone out today!
  • Wyrm Words—A word puzzle of all the Gygaxian words in the sixth issue—this way, a definition is never in doubt! Also included are the answers to the Issue #5’s Wyrm Words.
