My Friends Are Awesome

I've said it before, but my gaming brother +David Coppoletti is a fantastic artist. You can read the interview I did with him a few years ago here. He recently posted this on Facebook and I wanted to share it with everyone.

His art has been featured in a few releases, including Umerican Survival Guide and Theorems & Thaumaturgy Revised. If you're an rpg writer, you should talk to him about his commission rate.

Joker vs. Negan Alternate Ending (Walking Dead Zombies)

The original ending is better, but I thought I'd share this anyway.

I created Negan and Lucille stats in the original video post, so I thought I'd just go with a walker for this one.

AC 9 [10]   HD: 2    Attacks: Bite (1d3) Move: 9' Special: Anyone bitten by a walker becomes one when they die or in 1d3 days (whichever happens first).

The Witch Hunter Class

Talking with friends and working on Portsmaw has inspired me to make a new class for Continual Light, the Witch Hunter. It's definitely inspired by +MonkeyBlood Design (Glynn Seal)'s Witchfinder and if you're playing a more rules heavy version of Swords & Wizardry then I highly recommend using that class instead.

My version is also an appropriate class for a weird west game of Six-Shooters & Wagons. To use the class there, just give them knowledge of the use of pistols, hold outs, and shotguns.

Like pretty  much everything I do, it's pay what you want. You can snag it, here.

Six-Shooters & Wagons - Festus Haggen

While I know that there were folks that hated him, Festus was my favourite character on Gunsmoke (other than Quint the Blacksmith). Heck, he's one of my favourite fictional hillbillies. While I don't think Festus was a bad man at all, when you look at the Six-Shooter classes, he's got the most in common with the Swindler.

Doc Adams: I'll tell you why the Haggens live so long.
Festus: Why?
Doc: 'Cause they're too dumb to know they're dead.

*Festus can only read his last name, but is clever and could still copy something he sees.

Six-Shooters & Wagons - The Proposition (2005)

I watched this movie on the recommendation of +Red Flanagan. I'm glad I did, too.  

Synopsis: Set in Australia in the 1880's this film tells the story of a law man who sets one outlaw brother against another seeking justice. In a plot that's reminiscent of Red Dead Redemption, Charlie Burns (played by Guy Pearce) must track down the leader of his former gang (his brother Arthur, played by Danny Huston) in order to save his family (his other brother Mikey, played by Richard Wilson)

The Good: This film has great atmosphere and sets. Nick Cave's vocal performance of The Rider throughout the film is haunting and gives the flick an uneasiness that really adds to the it. Guy Pearce and Danny Huston are phenomenal as the Burns brothers and each gives a memorable portrayal. Though it's set in Australia, this is one of the better (though I wouldn't say best) western films of the 21st century. 

The Bad: The pacing of the film is a little odd at times, but not in an awful way. I really don't have much negative to say about this one.

The Ugly: This movie features a lot of racism towards aboriginal folk that was prevalent of the time. There are a few scenes that are brutal and hard to watch, but they are essential to the plot.

In Your Game:

Adventure Hook - The players have run afoul of the law (or some other person/organization in power) and are surrounded. They are captured and given a proposition. Bring in a former ally or someone close to them will pay with their life.

Hot Diggity, You Should Check out Wirtydiggety

My brother (not biologically, but in pretty much all other aspects), Wirty, has a Twitch channel. I know I don't talk about video games too much and tend to focus on tabletop, but I wanted to give a shout out to his page and lets folks know about it. Here are the links to his stuff


He is now a Twitch affiliate so if you have Amazon Prime you can subscribe to him with Twitch Prime and help him out.

Wirty and I have been best friends for about 20 years now. He's a really cool cat and one of (if not the best) DM I've ever played under. We're actually getting ready to start recording a project with +Stew Perkins called Against the Module. We'll be talking about rpg adventure paths and modules.
