Far Away Land RPG Revised Kickstarter!

So, I don't go in much for shilling, but my good friend +Dirk Stanley is running a Kickstarter for the revised Tome of Awesome (core rules of the Far Away Land RPG), plus a bunch of new supplements. It's a gonzo yet serious tabletop RPG that very simple to run and understand (I've run it with adults and kids), is great fun, very idiosyncratic, and is inspired by a lot of pop culture including (obviously) cartoons such as Adventure Time. Don't let the art fool you though; this is no kid's game, and it has a lot to offer adults, especially those with a taste for the quirky and strange.

There's just over two days left, so check it out if you haven't already! Dirk ALWAYS delivers, and early as well!

I... Live... AGAIN! Mutant Year Zero New Zealand Style!

It has been far, far too long since I updated this blog, but while life was hammering me, I have been busy with a little RPG-related creation too!

To make the best use of the excellent Mutant Year Zero RPG by Free League/Fria Ligan, and the standalone RPGs/supplements for it (Genlab Alpha and Mechatron, along with the five Zone Compendiums), I decided to go whole hog and make a very New Zealand-focused supplementary.

I turned Auckland into the Zone, did a lot of research in order to placing all the Special Zone Sectors where they best fit (either because there already was a building of that type present at a specific Auckland location, or because it made sense geographically to place it there). I then researched and wrote down the different types of ruins likely to be found at each given zone sector AND modified the Genlab Alpha tribes and species to account for New Zealand's much more restricted list of mammalian life.

Finally, I created a map of the Auckland Zone, accompanied by a smaller map that illustrates the broad environmental types to be found in the Auckland Zone:

If you want the full-size 100mb Auckland Zone Map (suitable for printing out A3-A2 in size (I printed mine a bit bigger than A3), pop me a message and I'll set you up.
