GUESTS: 100 YEARS OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS ART WITH MICHAEL TIERNEY & STEPHEN  CHENAULT

edgar rice burroughs art kickstarter

100 years of Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan, Jon Carter of Mars, more) art in pulps, comics and novels with author and historian Michael Tierney and publisher Stephen Chenault of Troll Lord Games!

We are producing the FOUR volume Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 100 Year Art Chronology, an illustrative history of all Burroughs’ publications in the United States (with a heavy dose of art from the United Kingdom). Written and compiled by Michael Tierney, the narrative gives the history of Burroughs’ work and the often legendary artists who visualized it, featuring untold stories, art that hasn’t been seen since its release, and pieces that were buried in the vaults from the beginning of his publishing history to the present day.

Officially licensed and sanctioned by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., this nearly 1,200 page examination of the vast publishing illustrative history of Edgar Rice Burroughs is divided into four parts:

  • Volume 1: The Pulps The Dawn of the Age of Science Fiction
  • Volume 2: The Books Literature With Sharp Cutting Edges
  • Volume 3: Comics The Universal Language Part 1
  • Volume 4: Comics The Universal Language Part 2

Attack of the D&D / RPG Memes VII!

Just when you thought it was safe to look at the Internet again (ok, it’s never actually safe to look at the Internet) it’s Attack of the D&D / RPG Memes! Yes, that amazing, joy filled and brain damaging stroll through the garden of dubious delights that is RPG humor at it’s best worst!

You might as well call off your attack lawyer seeking damages for mental cruelty, because I’ll just make them check out all of the previous Attack of the D&D / RPG Memes posts as well and then both of you will be drooling and playing with your yogurt.

Press the Big Red Button and let’s get these memes flowing…

D&D White Plume Mountain Notes #6

This episode: Take the kayak ride at White Plume Mountain and we’ll throw in a vicious battle with evil Sir Bluto and his knights for free! Fun and games with the floating stream. Blackrazor gives its wielder a free sample. Metagaming discussion. Further Blackrazor game balance vs. role playing finagling discussion. Can characters (not players) be atheists in the Forgotten Realms?

Each video follows the most recent session with his group.

Torment Tides of Numenera thumbnail

Let’s Play Torment: Tides of Numenera #15

This Episode: Welcome to the Fifth Eye Tavern. It’s a neighborhood bar in Cliff’s Edge where you can have interesting conversations, drink random fluids pumping up from somewhere far below, recruit warriors into the Endless Battle, and get strangled by ghostly women. Oh yeah, there’s also the living embodiment of the concept of the letter “O”.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is the thematic successor to Planescape: Torment, one of the most critically acclaimed role-playing games of all time. Immerse yourself in a single-player, isometric, story-driven RPG set in Monte Cook’s Numenera universe. What does one life matter? Find your answer.

D&D White Plume Mountain Notes #5

This episode: The final challenge to earn Blackrazor (gee, that halfling got kinda big). Speaking of Blackrazor, what’s the best way to introduce a super powerful weapon into the party while minimizing egregious game balance issues and also creating interesting role playing opportunities? Monster stat block 101. How strictly does Shane track spell components? Review of the surprise rules. The finer points of Melf’s Minute Meteors. White Plume Mountain, the novel (there really is one).

This is a series of Shane’s notes, thoughts and tips for running the classic D&D adventure White Plume Mountain from 1979, converted to 5th Edition in Tales from the Yawning Portal.

Each video follows the most recent session with his group.

D&D White Plume Mountain Notes #4

This episode: The terraced aquarium fun continues. Ropes, glass wall straddling, and fireballs abound. Sea lions can jump. Chunky salsa manticores. Darkness spell vs light spell. Swimming in metal armor in 1E vs 5E, plus underwater combat rules. A surprise halfling instead of Blackrazor. Doggone it, the party loses a mount.
