Jaded Gamer Diary - well I will remember.

Well over the many years I've been online I've made a lot of friends.  Many of them have went on to produce their own stuff online and put it up for sale.  So many times I have retweeted, blogged, signal boosted and tried to help promote their stuff.  Just because I'm a friend trying to help out a friend. 

Now that I have started to release my own material for sale... well lets just say there is cricket noises from those I've tried to help in the past.  Oh over on Twitter the DrivethruRPG account retweets my products tweets and I am grateful for that.  Even John Nephew whom I've never met or talked with retweeted me.  Other than that... cricket noises. Facebook, G+, etc same thing.  Nadda. 

So I will remember this. I've got my own back. But I will also rethink my relationship towards some people that I thought were more than just names on a social network.

Current standings on what I'm trying to push out the gate.

Modern Day Magic Items.
Writing is done just a touch up on the intro is all I want to do now. Some of the pics are found but I would like to find a few more through open clip/stock art sources. On Sunday (10/7) I plan on taking what I have and laying it all out and uploading it to Drivethru.

Be A Better Player Vol 2
Compile articles 11 - 18 together onto one page. Write 19 and 20 and add them into the compilation. Find pics for them, use same cover art though. Layout and upload.

Blood Magic
Digging through some old half finished notes and pulling some stuff out of my old Kult folders and seeing what I have to work with. Convert it all over to WaRP. Found a couple of free stock art pictures to use so far.

Stock Art
Have about eight more images already scanned in. Putting them up about two or so a month.  No more after until I can either get my old scanner working again or buy a new one.

Stopped worrying about offering up the pdfs in other formats like mobi or epub since nobody seemed interested at all when I asked around. Maybe at some point I the future I will look into learning how to convert over to use those.

Roll a D20 - My Bag of Holding Does What?

Sometimes you want a slightly cursed item.  Nothing really super bad but somewhat bad, or maybe just a little bit humorous.  Just to add some flavor.

So when you don't want to go full on Bag of Devouring with a PCs Bag of Holding here is a quick chart to give them a different, hopefully more memorable, side affect.

Twenty odd side affects for a Bag of Holding.

1 – Everything comes out feeling just a tad bit slimy.

2 – All ropes, strings, scarfs, etc come out tied in nots.

3 – Whenever you have two or more similar items in the bag (example one magic sword and one regular sword) you have to roll to see which one you pull out.

4 – Everything comes out with an ID tag tied to saying it's something that it is not.

5 – Whenever you reach into the bag it feels like hands tugging at your arm and item you are grabbing.

6 – When you pull an item out of the bag it makes a loud screaming noise.

7 – The bag appears to breath and at night it even snores.

8 – When jostled around the bag makes a sound like a snake rattle.

9 – Any blank parchment placed inside comes out covered in badly written poetry.

10 – Black soot seems to leak from the bag at random times.

11 – Whenever a spell is cast nearby that targets the undead the bag jerks, twitches and moves around.

12 – If you look into the bag you see a big eye staring at you from the bottom.

13 – Any empty containers placed in the bag come out filled with chalk dust.

14 – Spiders crawl out of the bag from time to time. All sizes and varieties.

15 – Perishable food placed inside goes back five times faster than normal.

16 – Any water stored inside comes out as tea.

17 – When you reach inside your hand comes out with your fingernails painted in different colors and designs.

18 – Most metal objects that have been in the bag for more than a week come out magnetized.

19 – Anything flammable that has been in the bag for more than a week now burns with an odd green flame.

20 – Everything comes out slightly hot when touched.

If you liked this you may also like my small sourcebook "I Found What in my Bag of Holding?". Available at DrivethruRPG for just a buck. With four hundred random things that may come out of your PCs bag.

Until next time....
