#SewerLife - Diggs

I remember seeing this picture in one of the Dragon Magazines I had in the late 90's. It was from a Gamma World Alternity article. I found it again recently and decided to make some content for it. Here's an npc you can add to your Crawling Under A Broken Moon Umerica games.

Diggs the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
The mutant turtle known as Diggs is the heir to a heroic legacy. The son of Raphael, Diggs and his brothers (Jones and Smith) were named after great artists of their father's youth, the Wu-Tang Clan. An angry young mutant, he is the last surviving member of his family. He travels the wastes of Umerica, seeking to help the helpless.

Vigilante Files: 2019 Con Exclusive

I am happy to announce that I will have something really cool to bring to Gen Con with me. Josh and I are hard at work putting together the Vigilante Files: 2019 Con Exclusive. This short zine will contain the three Vigilante City classes we've made (Paragon, Amazon, and Sentinel) as well as a brand new, only available in the zine class... the Super Fan.

I originally had planned on calling it the Fan Boy. Then I decided to go with Fan Boy/Fan Girl. Finally I decided Super Fan would be the best name because it's the most inclusive term. The class will be able to use their vast knowledge of pop culture and vigilantes to aid their allies.

We will be printing 30-50 copies of the zine and the only way to get one is to find me at Gen Con. We are also working with Sticker Man to get Lone Bards bumper stickers printed.

The layout is partially done and the writing of the first draft is done. Josh just needs to create art for the new class and we need to right our forward.

If you can't make it to Gen Con and are in Ohio, I will have a smaller print run that I'm taking with me to Con on the Cob.

Doesn't this look fantastic?! Want to know more, check out this post over at Bernie the Flumph. 

Ash Wednesday - Deadite Deer

Here's another amazing piece of art from my man, Travis Herman of Simple Interesting Visions. If you want to check out previous pieces I've shared, I've created a Simple Interesting Visions tag and went back and added it to previous posts.

Beware The Meth-Gators!

Meth Gators have been in the news lately. While drugs would be too diluted to actually affect gators, it's a great monster idea. Feel free to add meth-gators to  your Country Crawl Classics and Umerica games. Don't be surprised if a version of this ends up in a Lone Bards zine in the future.


Init +1, Atk Bite +4 melee (3d4); AC 18; HD 4d8; MV 30' or Swim 40'; Act 1d20/1d14; SP camouflage, exploding heart, hyper aware; SV Fort +5, Ref +2, Will -3; AL N

Meth-gators are masters of camouflage and receive a +10 bonus to all attempts at hiding. The drugs coursing through their system also make them hyper aware, giving them a +5 bonus to spotting intruders in their swampy domains. However, the drugs coursing through their system has negative effects. If a meth-gator fumbles on an attack it's heart violently explodes, leaving those within a 15 radius splattered in gator gore.

What Is Flammable Hospital?

I had a nice chat the other day with Jarrett Crade, the twisted mastermind behind Country Crawl Classics. Towards the end of the conversation he mentioned noticing my copy was damaged and asked if I'd like a fresh copy. Today I received my new copy AND a copy of a probably related item, Flammable Hospital. I say they are probably related because they were made by a lot of the same mad folk and one of the endings from CCC has your characters arriving at Flammable Hospital.

So what is Flammable Hospital? Well it's a hospital that's constantly on fire. It's also a treatise/memoir on the act of writing and getting high legally. Finally, its a 12 page zine (counting inside covers) of a bizarre TV soap opera meets wtf charts and tables. There's a name chart, a couple of character creation charts, one zero level, and another variable. There's an extremely bizarre random events chart, and some other just weird tables and such. There is a map of the hospital and a list of the the departments.

Honestly, I'm not 100% what to make of Flammable Hospital. What is it? It's an exercise in zine madness. I love it though. It's just so weird and I really appreciate Jarrett sending me a copy.
