    Default Member-Produced Commercial Content


    Welcome to the thread for member-produced commercial content. This is a thread for posting your non-5th edition works that are available through the DMs Guild, Drivethru RPG, and other such on-line retailers. As this is a slight digression from our normal rules regarding advertising, please be aware of the following

    1) Please limit this to works you are personally involved in; this is for posters to show off their works, not advertising for your publishing company.
    2) Please only make a single post about a given product. Do not post multiple times regarding the same product, as this will be considered advertising.
    3) Please observe the no double-posting rule. If you have several works, post them together, or edit your post in the meantime.

    Advertising, including posting here outside of these guidelines, is still subject to potential banning. If you have a question regarding a specific work, it is probably not ok, but ask a mod beforehand (and include a link).


    (As an aside: If there is sufficient demand for a d20/3.x specific thread, we'll post one in that subforum. Until then, post anything not 5th edition D&D in here)

    (The Mod Wonder: Here's an example of an appropriate post)

    About 10 years ago, I contributed to an anthology of short stories for Apocalypse Prevention Inc by 3rd Eye Games. My short story is about a werewolf whose friend forgets it's a full moon when he wants to go out, and the agents who have to deal with it.

    API Anthology

    The Mod Wonder: It is RPG-related. I was personally involved in its creation. It is for sale, but it is available on-line. It is a link to an RPG-specific seller. You'll note, the same link is in my sig, but my sig otherwise complies with the rules, with no excessive images. If this were a 5e product, the post would be moved to the 5e thread, and the poster might be warned or infracted for advertising, if they'd also posted there.

    Some of you may know that I have my own homebrew rules-light system. I've been developing it on and off for years; you may have seen me posting about it here before. Well... after much work and testing and revising and polishing, I'm pleased to announce the official release of the Simple Tabletop Roleplaying System, STaRS. The full version is available for $15; the lite version, containing the basic rules only, is pay-what-you-want.



    STaRS is a universal, rules-light system, capable of handling everything from gritty noir to high-flying superheros. It walks the thin line between running on a book full of rules and running on GM fiat, remaining easy to understand without ever leaving you unsure about what you can do. Friendly towards new and experienced role-players alike, STaRS is great for one-shots and long campaigns alike.

    Less time with your nose in a book. More time with dice in your hand. That's the promise and the power of STaRS.

    I make 3D printed dice, which you can find on my Shapeways shop. I've got a lot of designs, but several of them are especially relevant for D&D: I have one group that are shaped like weapons, with the appropriate number of sides for each (so you can, for instance, roll a battleaxe or morningstar-shaped d8 or a dagger-shaped d4), and another group for spell damage, in the die types often used for those elements (such as a d4 shaped like a Magic Missile or d6s and d8s shaped like lightning bolts and snowflakes).

    I also have an entire set of 4-6-8-10-12-20 shaped like gazebos, for all of you old-timers out there.


    (Note: Shapeways recently increased their prices for colored plastic, which is the default for many of my dice. You can save some money by choosing the white version instead, and coloring it yourself. I can vouch that permanent marker works on them.)

    HP Lovecraft's Prepatory Academy -- By Jeff Zitomer, Savage Worlds Conversion (Deluxe Edition) by Mark Hall

    I've off-the-cuff described it as "Harry Potter inspired by the Mythos rather than Narnia". Want to play as someone with an ancient bloodline of a Deep One? Or maybe a witch? Or a mad scientist? Or someone who travels into the dreams of others? Or someone who is just ... normal?

    As a note, your link goes to the "affiliate program" page, not sure if that was intentional.

    (Yes, this means I want to read more it. )
    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    Hey all!

    Uh, here's a handful of things I've been involved in in recent months:

    Eldritch Care Unit is a small RPG I self-published (also available on itch.io). The basic idea is that you play doctors, nurses, ritualists, or other staff members of a hidden supernatural wing of a hospital, taking care of preternatural patients or just mundane patients that the supernatural side of things has infected somehow.

    The Short Games Digest, which is a collection of small games by various TTRPG writers, both new and old, varying from OSR parodies to 1950's scifi and various others! I wrote a game about wizards and other prepared casters that focuses more around spell preparation than on actual encounters.

    I've also done a bunch of work on the Storyteller's Vault (mostly Chronicles of Darkness, but a little World of Darkness).

    And I also have a Patreon if you wanna see previews of other stuff I'm working on, or bonus content for any of the above.

    I wrote a game called "The Curse of the House of Rookwood". It's about dark supernatural powers, Gothic horror, and family drama. We just launched a kickstarter to pay for printing, art, and graphic design, but you can download the art-free PDF from the itch.io link in the kickstarter campaign description. It's already 99% finished and we're just waiting on a few last art pieces.

    Basically, you play members of a cursed dysfunctional family. Their curse gives them supernatural powers, but drawing on their power also leads to their doom. On top of that, they have a lot of family drama (sibling rivalry, dark secret, marital infidelity, need for approval from a distant parent, etc.) that works in a kind of feedback loop with their curse: the dark supernatural powers are recharged by picking at the family scabs, dragging skeletons out of the closet, or otherwise blowing up at each other.

    You could think of it as "The power and stressful family relationships of the Incredibles mixed with the creepy Gothic style of the Addams family" or "Percy and Mary Shelley fight monsters while trying to go through marriage counseling and/or a messy divorce". Or maybe think of the love triangles and rivalries and team infighting of the X-men, but everybody has dark Gothic themed powers like summoning ravens or shadow tentacles or becoming a gargoyle.

    It works well for one-shots but it is really made for legacy play. If you play a campaign, you can advance the calendar after a story arc and play a later generation of the family. The successes and failures of one generation can leave following generations in a stronger or weaker position. The family fortunes wax and wane through the centuries based on how you play.

    Hey Playground.

    I'm currently involved with Shadows of Esteren, which is in the final week of its 8 Year Anniversary Kickstarter to make an artbook of all its gorgeous, evocative art as well as reprinting some of the books that have long since gone out of print. Its one of the most beautiful TTRPGs out there, and its system is easy to pick up, both for veterans of TTRPGs and newcomers to the genre. Its made by Studio Agate, which is the same company that made the Fateforge setting, which you can see talked about in the 5e commercial content thread.
    I currently do not check the playground forums. If you would like to reach me, you can find me on twitter as HTTPaladin.

    I'm publishing content for Necrotic Gnome's Old School Essentials, an OSR ruleset based on B/X. I'm publishing two types of content that can be easily adapted to virtually any other OSR-style game:

    The first are supplements geared mostly towards running a hexcrawl/sandbox.
    Domain Rules (PWYW). Rules for higher level domain-style play, with a focus on clearing wilderness, founding a domain, building settlements, etc.
    Hexcrawl Basics (PWYW). Rules for creating and running hexcrawl-style games, with a focus on exploring the wilderness.
    Random Weather Generation. Supplement providing rules for randomly generating weather, including unusual events.
    A Guide to Thieves' Guilds. Rules for creating and running thieves guilds, either as a higher-level player activity or abstracted generation for Referees to create guilds.

    The other line of supplements is a series of 6-mile hexes populated with features and encounters. The hexes are released individually, but are part of larger clusters of 7, and can be used as either a mini-sandbox setting or mined for encounters to use as part of a larger campaign. Each hex has optional rules designed to add options to OSR games, as well.

    The first hex in the series, the Lake of Abominations, is PWYW.

    6.24.20 A new hex is up. 14.22 -- the Keep of the Troglodytes -- features an abandoned mine shaft inhabited by a vengeful ghost, a lonely manticore, and the eponymous Keep, a long-abandoned fortress currently inhabited by a vicious band of troglodytes. Includes two race as class troglodyte options, several new spells, and information on troglodyte demographics.

    6.25.20 The Kickstarter for an upcoming supplement, Filling in the Blanks, is now live. It is a guide for populating maps with features and lairs for fantasy role-playing campaigns.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...pulating-hexes

    7.6.20 Hex 14.21 -- the Gateway to the Pallid Fields -- is now live on Drivethru. This hex is another in the Basilisk Hills cluster, and also ties in with the Pallid Fields mini-hexcrawl in Faery. It features the eponymous gateway to Faery, a feral damselfly automaton, and a mad hermit, among other features. It also has rules for high-level ritual spells, spell research and mishaps, in addition to founding and running clerical temples.

    https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...-Pallid-Fields

    Additionally, the Filling in the Blanks Kickstarter is only a few dollars away from 2,000.00, which will unlock another free hex for all Kickstarter backers.

    7.18.20 I've uploaded a map packet containing the .hxm map files for all of the hexes in the Basilisk Hills cluster (15.21, 14.21, and 14.22 have been released so far) to give customers the ability to edit the hexes as needed for their own uses. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...lls-Map-Packet

    7.20.20 Hex 14.23 -- The Basilisk Knights, is live on Drivethru. It features the human settlement of Liwil, home to the Basilisk Knights, a half-dryad race as class and an alternate knight class, both for OSE, as well as rules for animal companions and how to level them up in OSE. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...silisk-Knights.



    Additionally, the Filling in the Blanks Kickstarter has four days left and is closing in on 5,000.00 and a final hex stretch goal: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...pulating-hexes

    D&D 4e COMBAT APP, SEEKING TESTERS!

    I am a hobby programmer with a keen interest in D&D. I have been developing an app to help D&D combats flow smoothly. The app is finally ready to undergo some public scrutiny in the form of a public beta test. I am looking for people who are interested in this app and who would be prepared to use it as a test with the rest of their party. I am able to take on up to 10 parties for this round of testing. App and beta details are below.

    App Summary:
    The app is intended to be used to help keep track of parties’ and monsters’ vitals during combat. Each user only has to manage their own creature’s vitals. To this end, as many members of the party as possible should be using it. Creature vitals are shared between the members of the party, including the DM. Critical information is restricted on enemy devices, instead being substituted with information they are allowed to know. E.g. The status of 49/100 hp replaced with “Bloodied”. Initiative, defences, healing surges and conditions are also tracked.

    Personally, I play a Cleric in my party. I find it can be frustrating when other players are not paying attention on my turn, not hearing or answering my inquiries about who needs healing. For other players, it can be helpful to know who needs some emergency protection or who can tank on the front line a little longer.

    App Usage:
    Without any in app purchases, a user is able to manage and view their own creatures. If a user has the "Campaign" in-app purchase, they are given a room where users can share their creatures’ vitals. They are able to control which users can view and use this room by asking their party members to message them their user id's and pasting them into the campaign management menu. If a user has been granted access to a campaign, they are able to make use of the room, even if they do not have the in-app purchase. This means that only one user needs the purchase for everyone else in the party to use it for free if they are given access by the room 's owner.

    Testing Information:
    The app is designed for the 4th edition (4e) of Dungeons and Dragons. That being said, it would probably work well for Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition (5e) if that's what you use, you’d just have to keep in mind that some of the features won’t fit perfectly. The app requires a Google (Google, YouTube or Android play store), Apple (iTunes, Apple app store) or Microsoft (Outlook, Office or Xbox) sign in to function. The app is designed to be intuitive to use if you are already a confident smart phone user. It will not cost you any money, when you contact me I will be able to provide you with codes that give you the app and the in-app purchases for free. If you have any questions please contact me. There is a questionnaire and bug reporting survey in the app, they are short to complete and your feedback is really appreciated.

    The app is limited to running on iOS and Android devices. This means that party members using devices that run other operating systems, such as Windows mobiles and Mac or Windows laptops, will not be able to join in.

    Applying for the Beta:
    If you would like to have access to the beta please send me a pm or an email to “[email protected]”. I will need to know whether each person in your party is an iOS or Android user and the email address for their app store account. Please include yourself in that list. This is so I can register each of them as testers on the correct stores. After that they will receive an email from Apple or Google with instructions on how to install the beta version of the app. Apple allows testers to use the app and make purchases in the app for free. Google still requires that users spend money to make these purchases, however I will provide Android users with a code so that they can gain access to the features without having to spend any of their own money.

    I need YOU:
    One of the hardest aspects of app development is attracting beta participants. If you are unsure about being a tester I would ask that you give it a go! Anybody and everybody makes a good beta tester. The process is not onerous. Your participation would really make a world of difference to me.

    I hope you enjoy using the app and making it ready for full release. My next project will be to make a 5e compatible version.

    I am working on a new role-playing game called Senjitsu Jidai. It's a world of multiple realities colliding in warring states era Japan. I'm developing it in FATE, so samurai can face off against cyborgs, cat-people, and mecha, all on equal footing. I'm planning to release a demo adventure for Free RPG Day on July 28th, and I have a development blog at senjitsujidai.wordpress.com. I hope you'll come check it out and subscribe for new updates.

    I've released a preview of the ESP skill and powers here: https://senjitsujidai.wordpress.com/...iew-esp-skill/

    The Unquiet Earth is an adventure where samurai, ninja, ESPers, witches, cyborgs, and monks come together to save a town from an earthquake, a tsunami, and a kaiju attack. The Oda have been building a fleet in Yokkaichi to support their siege of Osaka, and the ship yards have been releasing pollution into the air and water of Ise Bay. The shrine guardians have been warning the authorities that the pollution is upsetting the balance of man and nature, and that the kami are increasingly displeased. So far the Oda have ignored all warnings. Now the earth is beginning to shake...

    You can find the adventure here: https://senjitsujidai.wordpress.com/...-rpg-day-2020/

    I made a free Android app, Game Master Journal, that helps keep track of your NPCs, Cities, and Loot! I hope some of you find it useful!

    So for a while, I had been wanting a way to consolidate all the different things I wanted to keep track of when running my D&D games. None of the available notebooks and journals out there did exactly what I wanted, and I had been wanting to learn mobile development for a while, so I took it upon myself to create the tool that I wanted to use, and it's finally finished and available for whoever wants to use it.

    The main things the Game Master Journal helps trackis NPCs, cities, and loot. For NPCs, you can add races, descriptions, plothooks, a reference image, and you can also upload a voice file, in case you use accents or speech patterns you want to remember months down the line when that NPC finally makes a return appearance. In addition, you can tie an NPC to a specific city, in order to filter out only the NPCs in certain cities.

    For the loot, you can add prices, rarities, descriptions, and images. I've been using this page to basically store an entire list of different stuff to stock the various magic shops in my world.

    For cities, you can add custom environments, economies, sizes, and additional notes. You can add travel times between different cities so you know how long your players will spend in transit, and you can also add individual locations/buildings/points of interest within each city.

    All of this is offered for free on the Google Play store, and I also added support for French, Spanish, German, Russian, and Japanese languages. It's universal, so it should work with any TTRPG that you use. I hope some of you find good use for it!

    Check out the app here!

    I recently produced a minimalist fantasy role-playing game called "3 BONES" (available here) for those times when you want to play D&D but you don't want to spend a whole session with a stack of books full of options to make your character. If you have 3d6 and a small piece of paper, such as the back of a business card, you can be ready to play in a few minutes. If you want to be a "drunken dwarf who hunts trolls" or a "delicately-crafted warforged who sings the ancient bladesong of the elves" or a "holy knight who fights with a mace in each hand", then you can do that. In fact, if you write one of those descriptions on your character sheet, you're about halfway through character generation. There's even a one-page adventure to get you started so the GM doesn't even have to plan anything for the first session.

    My latest book is called Ash Island. It's personal survival horror on a fog-shrouded island inspired by Silent Hill, Shutter Island, and Twin Peaks. It's intended for one-shots and can be played in a couple of hours. It's easily playable over a regular video call too, if you want to get your game group together remotely for a Halloween horror game. It's available here.
