To all the GM’s out there who bring entire worlds to life, thanks you! And a personal note to my own GM, Scott: Please! No more rivers!

The folks at DriveThruRPG are celebrating too, with a huge sale going on right now. 25% off (or more) from over a hundred titles! I’ve decided to get into the game as well, and you can find three of my own titles on sale too.  Want to show your own appreciation for your GM? Get them a nice, shiny new system to run you through!

On Sale – 25% Off

Argyle & Crew retails for $2.99 (PDF) or $9.00 (Print). Today you can get the PDF for $2.25 and the print version for $6.75.

It’s a collaborative storytelling adventure for kids. It’s a great pick up game for adults. It’s the sock puppet RPG!

The land of Skcos is inhabited by all manner of things, but primarily its inhabitants belong to a race of ever changing, always interesting creatures called Soppets. Soppets are a magical breed of intelligent, funny, thrill seeking socks.

Yes, you read that correctly, Socks.

Argyle & Crew is a free wheeling system powered by imagination. Rather than a character sheet like a traditional RPG, your character and it’s attributes are all based on a sock puppet, or in Skcos lingo, a Soppet. Each Soppet has several unique qualities which allow it to do extraordinary things!

Argyle & Crew is great game for children as young as 4 years old. Short scenarios and active participation keep things lively! Useful as a learning tool not just for gaming, but for life lessons, Argyle & Crew can easily be used in a classroom setting. Professionals working on counseling children can find this game equally useful for indirectly or directly exploring past experiences and future anxieties. Use the additional rules for older children or adults and expand the game from a fun, play driven activity to a fully developed RPG, using a simple and fun set of mechanics.

Devious NPCs and Curious Creatures for Pathfinder retails for $1.99 as a PDF. Today you can get it for $1.50. Devious NPCs and Curious Creatures is a document designed to give GM’s interesting creatures and NPCs to mesh in to their ongoing Pathfinder games. The creatures and NPCs are designed for low to mid-level campaigns.

These NPCs and creatures are a bit different from what one may normally encounter and should give the PCs a chance to include some role playing in to their encounters, rather than a basic combat with the same old creatures and NPCs.

GMs are of course free to use these creatures and NPCs however they see fit, and should always remember that above all they and the players should be entertained and have a good time playing.

Included with every creature or NPC is at least one hook – an idea that can be used to make the PCs actively interested in an outcome further than simply slaying the beast or overcoming a singularly evil NPC.

Mirkmoot’s More Magical Mayhem for Creatures Small and Great retails for $0.99. Today get it for $0.75. We here at Troll in the Corner’s Magical Emporium are constantly searching the known and unknown worlds to bring you, our wealthy and overly encumbered adventurers, the finest magical items. We’ve journeyed the planes, trawled lakes of fire, flitted through realms composed of clouds and consorted with demon princes and godlings.

We’re not quite sure why it is then, that we continue to be fascinated with the objects created by one forlorn and grumpy goblin, but fascinate us the creations of Mirkmoot certainly do!

We’re ecstatic to announce then that Mirkmoot has returned! Actually, he hasn’t so much returned as never left, really. We’ve tried asking him to leave but every time we get as far as ‘We’d like to have our bathroom back and. . . ‘ he vanishes in a cloud of toilet paper and eventually turns up mumbling to himself hours or days later.

 

 

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
