If you're here, you're probably exactly the sort of gamer that would be into Ghostlike Crime. This zine looks amazing, with wild "what lies just beneath the surface" rules for DCC. Kane does a much better job of selling the project than I could, so head over to the Kickstarter page & check it out. I know the creator and can vouch that he's an awesome guy and incredible gamemaster. If this zine captures even a small sliver of his mind, it'll be unbelievable. And that's before you get to the three amazing artists he's got lined up: it's worth clicking over to the Kickstarter page just to see some damn cool art.

As I've discussed in the past, I run a pretty lethal Labyrinth Lord campaign for my home group. Here are the full campaign stats to date, accurate as of December, 2018.
These stats are for the campaign that started in December of 2011, played roughly every other week. In 2018, we had our lowest number of sessions, in large part due to focus on final playtesting of Star Crawl. However, I did get to mark an item off my gaming bucket list: last year, we completed the Queen of the Demonweb Pits, capping off our run through the entire AD&D super-campaign series. With the same group (and a few characters surviving throughout), we went through the complete Temple of Elemental Evil (T1-4), then into the Slavers series A1-4), Against the Giants (G1-3), and the Descent into the Depths (D1-2, Q1). Sure, it took 6 years, but I think that's a hell of an accomplishment. Major thanks to the players who made it possible: Mike, Allen, Dave, Brad, Josef, Aaron, John, Christopher, and Dan. Thanks guys, you're awesome.

I am honored to be the special guest on the latest episode of Glowburn, the premier podcast dedicated to Mutant Crawl Classics. They gave me a great opportunity to If you haven't listened to the show, you really should give it a try: Forrest, James, and Marc have great chemistry and really know their stuff. It was great to join in the fun and get a chance to discuss Star Crawl.
And a special bonus: James created a new Race Template just for this episode. Here's the official race template for Merchant Races!
