The Pledge Drive is Almost Complete

Since we’re reaching the final 24 hours of the 2017 Free Tools Pledge Drive, this will be my final update. This amazing community has helped raise $2900, currently just $100 shy from the goal to begin work on the Mutanteer’s Multitool, MCC’s answer to the Crawler’s Companion!

The fearsome, yet generous, mystics at Sanctum Secorum have added a final prize to the pool: 2 extremely rare print copies of their Free RPG Day companion issue. (Thanks!) The array of prizes provided by the community is pretty staggering (36 at final count!), and in addition to all the free Purple Sorcerer PDF adventure codes, I’m just amazed at the rewards pool.

Of course, from my selfish perspective, the most important thing is that this amazing community makes it possible for me to continue working on these tools. I’m not exaggerating when I say you make it possible.

(On Monday I’ll begin doing all the legwork of awarding treasures, discovering missing RPGNow email address, running polls, etc.). This community rocks, thank you!

2017 Free Tools Pledge Drive

OK noble friends: now that the initial version of the Mutant Crawl Classic Generator is up, it’s time to launch the 2017 Purple Sorcerer Free Tools Pledge Drive!

The drive will run through next Sunday, and as usual the goal is to raise fund to support creating, maintaining, and testing the various tools. (The big goal this year has been created to make it possible to replace the MacBook necessary to do things in the Apple world and to consolidate my development environment).

As always, there are neat rewards and treasures provided by the coolest people in the hobby. (If you’d like to add to the prize pool just let me know!)

So check out the pledge page: it has instructions on how to give, the rewards available, development goals, and more. Thanks to all the amazing folks who continue to support the free tools!

Server Upgrade Complete…

… mostly. 🙂

I’m still getting the email configured, but everything else seems to be working. If you noticed any of the pages acting strangely, let me know!

Server Upgrade

Approach #2 of my Purple Sorcerer Server upgrade will be going down tomorrow evening. Last time the upgrade in place ran into issues, so I’ll just be blowing the thing away and rebuilding from scratch. (I’ve gotten very good at that with my two testing servers and data server).

If shouldn’t take more than an hour or so, but you’ll be able to access (more or less current) mirrors of the site at 3 different addresses while its down, so hopefully no one will be inconvenienced. The only features that will be unavailable are the data tools inside the Crawler’s Companion. The server addresses are:

Take care everyone.
