I wanted to get a picture up of the Hit Point counter. Please note, however, that this was done on a scrap piece of cherry, and it does not have a finish or black fill in the lettering. In short, the finished version of this will look much better... (Read More)

Final Days, New Cards, New Deal

July 12th - via:
Final Days! This is it! This is the final week; the final 4 days, actually. The project ends on Thursday and I'd like to see it really take off. I've put in two ad buys on facebook and have one going on RPGGeek. I have daily posts going up on FB and... (Read More)

Introducing the Hit Point Tracker

July 11th - via:
I've received a couple requests for a card that is a little more generic. One that tracks Hit Points and maybe something that can be used for multiple classes. This is a kind of tough order because many classes have actions that don't fit well with a... (Read More)

Some pics of new artwork

New Artwork posted; Working in an oven

July 7th - via:
A day later than I was planning on, but the new artwork is now posted on the page. In case you missed the last update, Wizards of the Coast contacted me and requested that I not use their class symbols from previous editions. I got drawings of those... (Read More)

Artwork update -- please read

July 3rd - via:
Well, I guess this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but I was contacted by Wizards yesterday with a request that I not use the class symbols from previous editions in my project. I had thought that their class images were ones that they... (Read More)

Is there any interest in AD&D cards?

June 29th - via:
So, I was working on a card for AD&D and I came up with a couple versions. Here they are: Then someone brought up that in AD&D, you don't have spell slots, you have to memorize specific spells, which kinda defeats the purpose. this... (Read More)

Here is a possible redesign on the Ranger with Primeval Awareness and a Beastmaster archetype. I'm not sure if the Ranger redesign adds anything. But give me some feedback and let me know what you think. Ranger Redesign BeastMaster Finally, the... (Read More)

Closing in on 100 backers

June 25th - via:
I've mentioned before how I prefer to track ┬ábackers instead of total amount raised. I'd prefer to think about the number of people I can affect rather than the amount of money that is on the table. I know that the average pledge is going to be... (Read More)

Last night I had a dream....

June 24th - via:
True story here. Last night I had a dream. It as about this Kickstarter. We were down to the last day and the project was going well, but it hadn't gone viral. I'm watching the project and we get down to the last half hour and then BOOM! everyone... (Read More)

Blood Hunters

June 22nd - via:
I worked today on the Blood Hunter templates. There is so much to track with these that I didn't put a graphic on; I'm not sure one will fit well. I'm not familiar with these classes, so I'd appreciate any comments before I finalize them. Also, the... (Read More)

Workshop Walkthrough

June 21st - via:
I've spent the past 3 weeks working on my new workshop. It was in a pole building we have on an adjacent lot to our house, but after a lot of thought and procrastination, I decided to move it to the 2nd floor of our garage. So, I got one of the... (Read More)

My weekend project list

June 18th - via:
Since the COVID shutdown, I've had a good bit of extra time on my hands. All my spring/summer..heck, ALL of my conventions have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Online sales have picked up, but not to the point of making up for missed... (Read More)

Funded in about an hour!

June 16th - via:
We are funded, which really isn't that big of a surprise. Because of the extremely low overhead on this project, I set the funding goal very low. But maybe that we made it that quickly, it will help get the word around? In six years, I've never... (Read More)
