Sorry for how quiet things have been on the tools and adventure front: the last few months has been very challenging health-wise for the Sorcerer, and I’ve been in treading-water mode attempting to simply keep up with work-work.
Hopefully, I’ll have some things to report in the near future!
One funny story
During family dinner, we often do a quiz found in a local paper. One recent question asked how many sides there are in a tetrahedron. My daughter was stumped, so I hinted ‘the smallest gaming die’. To which she responded: ‘a d3?’. Go DCC!
All out titles (along with many more from other DCC and OSR publishers) are 25% off!
It’s a great opportunity to fill out your library. 🙂
Over the years I’ve spoken of creating some type of ‘wall of honor on my site’ to thank those who have gone above and beyond in supporting the free tools.
I’ve finally created a simple page to do just that. I”m sure I’m missing folks I need to thank, and I’ll definitely be enhancing the page in the future, but for now it’s my simple way saying thanks. (And I hope it goes without saying that I appreciate the generosity of everyone who has supported the tools over the years, in ways both small and large!)
We raised almost $3900! The funds have purchased two new mobile testing devices, will cover many basic costs to run the servers the tools run on, and most critically, will allow me to replace the aging MacBook required to work in the Mac/iOS world… thank you, thank you!
Over the next couple days I’ll determine the prize winners, contact folks about adventure download codes, and arrange polls for the dev goals that will need pledgee input (the new character sheets and 3rd party classes). There will soon be a flurry of messages as I begin to wrap things up!
I’m excited to begin work on the Mutanteer’s MultiTool and other cool new utilities that will be added to the Purple Sorcerer Site. As mentioned, I hope to complete most of the things this summer, but depending on my health, it might take longer. It will all get done, but sometimes my body enforces a more leisurely pace…
Thank you one and all for your incredible support: those who generously gave, those who provided incredible treasures, and those who did both! You truly make the tools possible.
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!
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!
The initial version of the 0-level generator is up! This required lots of coding, so please let me know if (when) you notice any strangeness. 🙂
Try Out the Generator
Have fun mutanteers!
