There’s a lot of free material on my website. First let’s cover the campaign settings, then let’s go after the blogging.
If you’re interested in my campaign settings, each has freebie PDFs you can snag. They are as follows:
- VERANTHEA CODEX (Pathfinder): 1 part Sword, Sorcery and Steampunk, 1 part Wuxia Fantasy, 1 part Monstrous Dieselpunk, 1 part Subterranean Psionic Wild West Horror, 1 part Nautical Tesseract of Xenos and Dark Ones, 1 part Oceanbed Ancient Progenitor Robots. This is also a toolbox of GM resources (like classes, vehicles, new races) and a sort of NPC Codex for alchemists to witches–all the classes from the Advanced Players Guide plus some magus, ninja, and samurai.
- HYPERCORPS 2099 (Pathfinder and D&D 5E): A superhero cyberpunk world where hypercorporations are the true arbiters of power, ruling over an Earth long overrun by fantasy. This includes the Hyper Score system and its 5E conversion, rule templates to take a fantasy character into the unforgiving future (and of course a cast of 50 NPCs, locales to adventure in, and lots of other fun).
- Mists of Akuma (D&D 5E and Shadow of the Demon Lord): Eastern fantasy noir steampunk! Soburin was invaded and subjugated by the technologically advanced ceramians, drafted back into war before catastrophe struck afar. Now they have regained their independence but the ancient Mists of Akuma roil across the land, threatening to bring an end to all of civilization at the hands of vicious adeddo-oni emerging from the primordial fog! 26 different clans, three chapters focusing on three major cities, over 100 NPCs and monsters, spells, 14 new races, backgrounds, class archetypes, the whole shebang.
- 2099 Wasteland (D&D 5E): In this alternate timeline a nuclear apocalypse has overtaken the world, all of its toxic fallout recently disappearing so that the few survivors left are able to scrape civilization back together on the Earth’s surface. This campaign setting is all about survival over glory, including a random world generator, rules for creating settlements, custom-building weapons, a bunch of monsters, altered rests, and even an apocalyptic Merlin.
- Book of Exalted Darkness (D&D 5E and Shadow of the Demon Lord; not yet released): This holy decopunk campaign setting is all about adventurers that are evil–for JUSTICE! The world’s technology is powered by inaequa, energy that elongates the lives of creatures with good in their hearts.
