What I’ve Been Up To

Wow, four months and no post. My apologies. I have been working on stuff, however, and I thought I’d share some of that with you.

First up, there are now 10 two page mini delves that I have completed, and are available on Drive Thru RPG. There’s even a bundle of 5 free ones, so you can check out the format, and see if this sort of thing is right for your campaign. You can get the Two Page Mini Delves here.

Second, I know I’ve been kind of quiet on the Adventures In Bayhaven front, and for that I apologize. At one time, my goal was to publish one adventure per month. Obviously, that hasn’t happened. However, I do have one new adventure in the works, and will post it here when it’s available. In the meantime, go check out what Justin (the creator of Hero Kids) has been up to – there will soon be a Monster Compendium with over 100 monsters! Add to that the monsters in the Bayhaven Guide, and you’ll have… well, enough monsters to last you a while. I’m also happy to see that he’s consolidating the monsters into their own book, as it was a bit of a pain to go to different adventures to find the monster you need.

On top of that, Justin has updated the Hero Kids rules, and is offering a 50% off coupon for the softcover book. I don’t know how long that will last though. I only had the PDF up to this point, so I was happy to pick up the physical book. I know it will get a lot of use in our house!

Finally, I’ve submitted the 5 Questions supplement to Drive Thru RPG to be the Deal of the Day, at 60% off. That’s $2 for a really great supplement. I don’t know when it will be the deal of the day (because it’s determined randomly each day), but you can put the product in your wishlist; I’ll be sending an email on the day of the sale targeted to people holding it as a wishlist item.

Aaaand, in the “Miscellany” category, there’s one more product I’m working on; it’s the reason I haven’t posted in so long, and why I’ve been neglecting my Adventures in Bayhaven series. It’s been quite the undertaking, especially for a one man show like myself. However, I’ll be announcing that product in the next post. Stay tuned!

New Hero Kids Pets Expansion!

chamroshTransparentBGI’ve developed a new set of pets for your Hero Kids game!

Pets are consistently a favorite among the young kids who play Hero Kids, and I thought it was a shame that they only had 11 to choose from. I also thought that some mythological animals could be included, since Hero Kids is a fantasy game. You can add these creatures to your heroes’ choices of pets right away, or you could design a special adventure where they find one of these creatures. (Imagine an adventure where they have to fight a bunch of goblins that ride on giant beetles!) It’s totally up to you. I hope your kids have as much fun with them as I had designing them!

Here are the 11 new pets in this expansion: Continue reading

New Adventure in Bayhaven: Sunrise Over Still Water

BayHavenDTRPGthumbNEWIt’s the end of 2015, and I’ve released the last Adventure in Bayhaven of the year. On top of that, it’s the conclusion to the three part “Shrike Incursion” series. Does it have awesome art by Wes Hall? Why yes, yes it does. If you’ve purchased the other two parts of the series, you’ve seen the other shrike art he’s done, and this adventure introduces the Shrike Shaman (pictured below).

PLUS, this adventure includes notes at the end on how to flow the next session seamlessly into The Lost Village. Continue reading

Hero Kids Christmas Adventure!

Gingerbread Melee SmallFrom now until December 25, there is a FREE “Adventures In Bayhaven” Christmas Adventure on Drive Thru RPG! Get it now though, because on December 26, the title will be a pay title.

The adventure is titled “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.” The kids are enjoying a mug of hot chocolate at the Bayhaven Bakery, when the Sugar Plum Fairy appears, and brings the Gingerbread Men to life. From there, she goes on a mischievous spree around town, bringing other things to life. Can the characters stop her before she gets to Don Pepito’s Weapons Shoppe? And why did the Sugar Plum Fairy appear in the first place?

Included in this adventure are three Christmas monsters, and two pieces of Christmas treasure.

Enjoy!

You can get Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy here.

Treasure Map Fragments!

Map Fragment ThumbAnyone who has been running my Adventures in Bayhaven for your kids will have come across a treasure map fragment or two. Or more. I just went through the old adventures and added a Treasure Map Fragment “Equipment Card” for your players, so they can keep track of how many they’ve found. As a result, I thought I would list here the adventures that include a map fragment:

Why are these map fragments special? Well, they’re sort of like easter eggs in a video game. The adventure runs fine without them, but if a character does something specific, or rolls really well, they’ll come across a map fragment. Collect four of them, and a special adventure is unlocked! It will be titled “Cave of the Black Sail Pirates,” and no, it is not written yet. I still need to hide more treasure map fragments for your kids to find…

 

Two New Adventures in Bayhaven

BayHavenDTRPGthumbThere’s a new adventure out today! It’s part 2 of a 3 part series I’ve titled “The Shrike Incursion.” Shrikes are evil fish-men who have invaded the bay. In the first part of the series “Empty Nets,” the kids discover that the fishermen of Bayhaven aren’t catching any fish, and eventually find that they have to explore a cave to fix the problem. Who’s to blame? Shrikes!

But the shrikes aren’t done with their mischief yet… in “The Heart of the Bay,” a water elemental appears and asks the kids for help. But how can they help it? They need to dive to the very bottom of the bay after they’ve searched a library for clues, and done a bit of shopping in town…

What’s cool about these adventures? Well, aside from some art by Wes Hall

ShrikeOnSharkThumb

We have:

  • A weapon upgrade
  • A new bonus ability for magic users
  • A new magic item
  • A new potion
  • And stat blocks for a few new monsters, including that cool mounted shrike above
  • And TWO opportunities for your party to find Treasure Map fragments!

Stay tuned for the grand finale next month!

New Adventure in Bayhaven: Mystery of the Stolen Pendant

BayHavenDTRPGthumbThe next Adventure in Bayhaven is here! In this one, the heroes are tasked with solving a mystery. Given a list of suspects, the kids have to go to some locations in town and look for clues. Each clue will eliminate a number of suspects until they are left with only one!

This adventure hands your players a fun (though simple) logic puzzle to solve, and includes some really cool art by Wes Hall that I teased last week. It also includes a piece of treasure for your players (so make sure you have the Hero Kids Equipment book!) and a super secret…thing…that your players may or may not find. Don’t worry, that last bit is not central to the adventure. So, what are you waiting for?

You can get “Mystery of the Stolen Pendant” here.
