Pledge Drive Complete: This Community Rocks!

The generosity of the Dungeon & Mutant Crawl Classics community is just amazing. The 2018 Free Tools Pledge Drive is complete, and we’ve raised over $4500! Good grief that is incredible. This makes so many things possible that I just couldn’t do on my own.


There are usually a few late donations that come in over the night depending on time zones, etc. So I’ll officially start tabulating things tomorrow. I’ll do the bulk of the work of sending out emails to the top donors, and determining random prizes on Monday, so I should be able to start announcing prizes Monday evening or Tuesday!

Read more about what the funds are making possible of the Pledge Drive page.

2018 Free Tools Pledge Drive!

That special time of year has rolled around once again: The 2018 Purple Sorcerer Games Free Tools Pledge Drive is Underway!

We do this once a year to raise funds to help cover the costs of creating, maintaining, testing, publishing, and hosting our free tools. As always there’s a pile of awesome prizes and rewards available to those who participate, supplied by the coolest people in the hobby, including the Dark Master himself! (If you’d like to add something to the prize pool, let me know quickly so we can add it to the list!)

The drive will run through next Saturday. I’m always astonished by the generosity of this community: thanks so much for your continuing support of the free tools!

Site Issues: June 20 at 11:00 p.m. Pacific Time

UPDATE: Things have been restored. I’ll leave this post up so that true hard core users can bookmark the backup server… just in case. 🙂

A power outage has taken down the server facility where the Purple Sorcerer site is hosted. Hopefully the issue will be resolved very soon, but if you absolutely, positively, must create some sheets now, my data server (which mirrors the main site) seems to be up and running. You can access it using the link below. 🙂

The Crawler’s Companion Version 1.8

CrawlerThis major update to the Crawler has been approved at Apple, Google Play, and Amazon, and should appear in their app stores shortly. (Sometimes it can take a while to filter through all the nooks and crannies of the various sites).

For you side-loaders of the DCC world, the Android APK’s (and the PC and MacOS Desktop installers) can be found on the Crawler page at I provide a number of different versions there to hopefully provide compatibility for as many Android devices as possible.

This update has been in the works forever. I’ve been in a testing cycle for much too long, since I get so freaking queasy about the potential problems of rolling out a new version. But, as they say, you’ve got to let the stirge fly free at some point. A fairly significant portion of my free hours have been poured into it over the last year, so I hope the DCC community finds the new features useful. 🙂

What’s New in Crawler Version 1.8
• Dual-screen landscape mode for tablets! (Depending on how you’re holding the device at launch, it will either choose portrait or landscape mode).
• Information sharing between Crawler apps in the same campaign
• Updated campaign battle data system
• Dice multipliers and modifiers on the dice-rolling screen
• Campaign notes page
• Add names to your spell casters
• More die colors

Be sure to visit to view the Crawler 1.8 QuickStart Video to see the major new features in action.

Upper Level Generator Updated!

I’ve integrated Goodman Games sheets as the default styles for every class. (You can find the old look as ‘Classic Style’ in the styles dropdown).

Upper Level Generator

This has been a major overhaul involving a fairly significant amount of new code: though I’ve fixed a few bugs along the way, there’s a good chance I’ve introduced new ones, so let me know if you spot anything strange!

New 0-Level Party Generator Sheet Style

As my health is improving, my productivity is starting to pick up. 🙂

I’ve added the very cool Goodman Games 4-Up sheet to the ‘Styles/Format’ dropdown in the O-Level Party Generator. Just select ‘4 character PDF (Goodman Games New)’.
