The Final Hour!

July 25th - via: kickstarter.com
Well, we're just shy of $18,000 ($16,000 if you discount the $2,000 pledge that I'm fairly certain was an error but as yet haven't heard back from the backer) and have just under an hour to go. Wow. I'm going to get through the basic business of... (Read More)

This Is Not a Stretch Goal!

July 24th - via: kickstarter.com
So there wasn't a 700-backer stretch goal, but we hit it anyway. ;) In addition to the three caster-type class templates being included in the campaign/drop-in book, a fourth template that can be applied to monk-type classes will also be included.... (Read More)


July 24th - via: kickstarter.com
Well, the tally currently says that we're over $15,500, but there's a decent chance that the extra funds are the result of a typo in the pledge field. I've contacted the backer in question to clarify this, but regardless... we've passed the $13,500... (Read More)

The final stretch!

July 24th - via: kickstarter.com
Ok, so we're a few hundred dollars away from our final stretch goal. We've got 636 backers, and there's around 22 hours to go. Let's do this. The Not-a-Stretch-Goal! $13,500 is the final stretch goal. I'm officially not creating any more stretch... (Read More)

The Seedbearer!

July 23rd - via: kickstarter.com
We've just crossed 500 backers... which means that the Seedbearer template is going in the book! I've touched on this a bit in the comments, so here's a bit of lore. Seedbearers were created by the Divine in a time long forgotten. They bore within... (Read More)


July 23rd - via: kickstarter.com
I almost wish that I'd taken a few more minutes to type out that last message so that I could have included this one in with it. ;) Regardless, we just crossed the $10,000 mark. I honestly keep wanting to think that I misread that when looking at the... (Read More)

Final List and a Little Something Extra!

July 23rd - via: kickstarter.com
Originally intended for release a couple of days ago, the final list preview from the upcoming "Short List" download is ready! The craziness of the last couple of days delayed it a bit, but hopefully it's worth the wait. Cyberpunk-style games often... (Read More)

450 Backers!

July 22nd - via: kickstarter.com
We just hit 450 backers, and you know what that means... the Divine Conduit is go! After creating the Chaos Caster, I tried to come up with additional ideas for other class templates that could work with the theme of 1d100. The Divine Conduit was the... (Read More)

The Handbound Options Are Sold Out!

July 22nd - via: kickstarter.com
We just sold our last handbound upgrade! Thank you to all of you who took advantage of this opportunity... it not only means a lot to me, but it means a lot to a dear friend as well. :) (And yes, I didn't get the last list finished last night...... (Read More)


July 22nd - via: kickstarter.com
No, this isn't the update with the next preview list. Things have kind of blown up a bit tonight, so I'm still working on finishing that up. It's still coming, I've just got to finish filling in a few slots first. ;) This update concerns the... (Read More)

Hand-Bound Book Details

July 21st - via: kickstarter.com
Just before signing off for the night, we crossed the 400 backers stretch goal! That means that the "Chaos Caster" template is now going in! We've still got 4 days to go to get the remaining 100 backers for the other templates. While that might seem... (Read More)

Delayed List #2.

July 21st - via: kickstarter.com
Looks like the final "Short List" list will also be delayed; it will be posted tomorrow afternoon (as will information about the handbound books.) The list is partially complete now, but it's going to take just a little more time to finish up. After... (Read More)

NPC Hooks!

July 20th - via: kickstarter.com
Sorry that this one's late... I ended up getting busier than anticipated yesterday, and still had a few entries to finish when I realized that I really needed to get some sleep. Still, this one has a lot of potential in games and I hope was worth the... (Read More)

The List Is Late!

July 20th - via: kickstarter.com
Running a little late with the new preview list. It will go up tomorrow morning/early afternoon, and then a second list will go up tomorrow night. Sorry for the delay!  (Read More)

Sharing the Love and a Quick Question

July 19th - via: kickstarter.com
I've got two things to talk about today before we get to our preview tonight (which some of you are going to love... NPCs are finally getting some attention.) First we're going to share some love, and then we'll talk about the possibility of a... (Read More)

Preview List #3!

July 19th - via: kickstarter.com
Here we have it: the Sanity Effects list from 1d100. When you see something that you shouldn't, it can have a wide range of effects on you. Some of them might not seem so bad at first, while others can put your very life at risk. What will happen to... (Read More)

The Campaign!

July 18th - via: kickstarter.com
We've crossed the $7,500 mark, which means that the drop-in locations will now be part of a larger campaign template that GMs can use to run a unique adventure in the fantasy game system of their choice! I love writing campaigns. More importantly, I... (Read More)

Final Week!

July 18th - via: kickstarter.com

There was a request for a sci-fi list, so for today's preview we'll be taking a look at conditions on planets that players might encounter while exploring the cosmos. These results include major features on the planets, details about the indigenous... (Read More)

The Short List and a New Stretch Goal!

July 17th - via: kickstarter.com
After a request to see another sample (a sci-fi one this time), I've decided to change things up a bit. I've removed "The Short List" from the list of pledges, and will instead be providing it as a free download containing five sample lists from the... (Read More)

Sample List Preview

July 16th - via: kickstarter.com
I'm still finishing up some of the descriptions in the downloadable sample, but until it's ready I'm posting an image of the quick-reference list (which is the first page of the list, showing all 100 options in a single table.) A link to the full... (Read More)

d100 Tier III!

July 15th - via: kickstarter.com
The last tier of the d100 level has been posted! There are 20 dice this time instead of 15, so there are a few more opportunities to get one this time... but when these are gone, that's it. (Read More)

Add-ons, Stretch Goals and More Dice, Oh My!

July 15th - via: kickstarter.com
My horribly hectic week is finally over, so I'm back for more frequent updates! We've got a few things to discuss here, so let's get to it! First thing's first... we just crossed the $5,500 mark! This means that the dice roller is getting an upgrade... (Read More)

The Fleet Is In! Also, Hello!

July 12th - via: kickstarter.com
We've passed the next stretch goal for the two-in-one drop-in of "The Fleet!" Ships can be fun in games so long as they're not treated as generic transports. This is especially true in the case of airships, which are massively underutilized in gaming... (Read More)


July 12th - via: kickstarter.com
Things have really been going crazy today! I was away from home for most of the day, and when I got back my inbox was overflowing with new backer alerts. We've crossed both the "Township" and the "Dice Roller" stretch goals, and are less than $100... (Read More)

More new stretch goals!

July 10th - via: kickstarter.com
Wow! The new d100 tier is almost sold out already! There's a chance that I might be able to get more between now and the end of the campaign, but there are no guarantees. For now, though, we've got some new stretch goals! Since there aren't any more... (Read More)

The d100 Edition II Is Live!

July 10th - via: kickstarter.com
Fifteen new backer slots for the d100 edition are now open! The new tier is exactly the same as the original d100 edition, with the only difference being that there are currently slots available while the original has been full for a while! New... (Read More)

The d100's Are Returning!

July 9th - via: kickstarter.com
Good news, folks... I've received confirmation that the supplier I've found for the d100's will not only be able to fill the current order, but will be able to supply some additional dice as well! Tomorrow¬†afternoon (around 5pm Central), I'll be... (Read More)

Another Stretch Goal, and News!

July 9th - via: kickstarter.com
We've passed the $2,900 point, which means that there will be a total of 60 lists in the book! There's only one stretch goal left in the current list, after which a few more will be added for the last two weeks of the campaign. It's hard to believe... (Read More)

Stretch Goals Galore!

July 9th - via: kickstarter.com
Hey, all! Updates will likely be sporadic over the next several days as the in-laws are currently visiting and my workload at my "day job" has increased to boot. (Oddly enough, said "day job" also involves writing.) I've fallen a bit behind in my... (Read More)

Stretch Goals and Updates!

July 6th - via: kickstarter.com
Hi, everybody! Sorry I've gotten a bit behind on my updates here; yesterday was a bit busy between working around the house and celebrating the 4th with my family, and today proved a bit busier than expected as well. That said, let's get caught up on... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #7!

July 3rd - via: kickstarter.com
Meant to post this earlier, but it's been a pretty busy day. That said, it's been pretty busy here as well... we've already passed the first stretch goal of the new group! With this latest stretch goal, the book will have 45 different lists in it! If... (Read More)

Hello, RPGGeek.com!

Looks like 1d100 has been mentioned in another list of gaming-related Kickstarter projects, this time in the 2013 Kickstarter thread at RPGGeek.com. Many thanks to the individual who posted a link and our Kicktraq data in the thread! (Read More)

New Stretch Goals!

July 2nd - via: kickstarter.com
Given that the first group of stretch goals was ripped through in under a week, it's time for a second helping of goals! Some of these will be spaced out a little more since they're slightly bigger goals, but I think that they'll be worth it in the... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #6!

July 2nd - via: kickstarter.com
And there goes the last of the current stretch goals... "The Lost Maze" is now going in the book! This isn't the end of the stretch goals, however; additional goals will be going up later today! There are some fun things planned for 1d100, and we've... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #5!

July 1st - via: kickstarter.com
We've crossed the $1100 mark, and you know what that means... another stretch goal has been blown out of the water! Now, instead of the original 25 lists, 1d100 will contain a total of 40 lists! There's also only one more stretch goal remaining in... (Read More)

And the d100s Are Gone!

June 30th - via: kickstarter.com
I just realized that with our most recent pledge, the standard d100 pledge level is now gone! There are still a few slots left at the $50 and $75 pledge levels, but there aren't that many of those either. True 100-sided dice are kind of hard to come... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #4!

June 30th - via: kickstarter.com
That's two stretch goals in one day! This time, the stretch goal unlocks some additional art for the final book. The original vision was to have the interior be largely text and tables, but this will give us some illustrations of key items,... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #3!

June 30th - via: kickstarter.com
Looks like we're really churning out the stretch goals... not even a week into the campaign, and we just crossed stretch goal #3! The book will now contain 35 lists, in addition to the free list (which I'm hoping to post up on Wednesday) and any... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #2!

June 29th - via: kickstarter.com
We've now passed the "Wonder of Wonders" stretch goal! This means that the book will now have two magical weapons that use random effects... and boy, do they have a lot of effects! Both weapons are similar to the Rod of Wonder (which can be a lot of... (Read More)

Hello, Skyland Games!

June 28th - via: kickstarter.com
I just found out that 1d100 was featured in the Skyland Games blog's pre-weekend list of gaming-related Kickstarter projects. According to Skyland Games, 1d100 is the "ultimate book of random encounters!" Thanks to the folks at Skyland Games for... (Read More)

Stretch Goal #1!

June 28th - via: kickstarter.com
Looks like we've already passed the first stretch goal... the book will now contain 30 lists instead of the original 25 (not counting the extra list I'm doing as a free download and any lists made as a result of backer rewards.) I received a message... (Read More)

Well, it looks like we just hit our funding goal... and there are still 27 days to go! Thanks to everyone for all of the support so far. As I mentioned, I'll be working on a special list to release as a stand-alone download in the next few days. It... (Read More)

Welcome to 1d100!

June 26th - via: kickstarter.com
I meant to post this yesterday, but I got caught up in some work around the house and it slipped my mind. Naughty, naughty. Anyway, for my early backers (and those visiting the campaign page), I'd just like to say thank you for your interest and I... (Read More)
