What a Horrible Day to Have a Curse

The third revision for If These Stones Could Scream is ready to go.

I originally wrote the adventure nearly two years ago, which was just a few months after Melissa and I officially started charging people for our tabletop stuff (it was both our second adventure and overall Dungeon World product).

As with many indie creations it was very minimalistic in its production quality, featuring a cover (drawn by me), blank white pages, and black text. Really the only thing I didn't do was shoehorn in a bunch of Creative Commons art.

(Oddly, I did create some really nice maps using Photoshop, which contrasted wildly in style and quality from the rest of the product.)

The second revision spruced up the layout a bit and added some new content, but aside from redoing the Desert of Angry Winds map—to be more inline stylistically with the rest of the product—there weren't any drastic or frankly even memorable additions/changes (I'd have to look at the original to figure that out, which I don't even have anymore).

Since then we've learned a lot and improved quite a bit. We've also released a couple of other, smaller adventures, with a few more on the horizon. I've always liked the overall plot of this adventure—which inadvertently draws more parallels to various episodes of Doctor Who than I'd initially thought—so I decided to revisit it and give it a complete overhaul.

It's fully in color (though there'll be a B&W version if you want to print it out at home). There's a new cover, art (original, not Creative Commons, and it's both in color and not a bunch of barely comprehensible scribbles), and maps. I've changed the overall plot. Some of the moves, monsters, and magic items have been tweaked, as has the new(ish) race and compendium class.

If you purchased it in the past, you'll be able to download the new version now. If you haven't, once DriveThru's Christmas in July sale ends I'm upping the cost by a buck or two, to reflect the increased page count and production quality.



DriveThruRPG is running their Christmas in July sale. During this time (which is around 4-5 days), everything in our store is 25% off.

We just released The Headhunter: kill your enemies and take their heads, using them to fuel your strange, gruesome magic. We're working on The Rakshasa (which is ready for its first feedback round: hit me up if you want to take a look), followed by another class that's getting close to being revealed.

Lichfield is available for public consumption. If you want a concise adventure with a Silent Hill feel, be sure to check it out! Primordial Machine is also out, so if you want to catch a glimpse of A Sundered World, now's your chance!

The Dungeon World GM Screen is currently available in pdf and landscape insert formats. No matter which you choose, you get eight sets of pdfs that let you have access to the screen in both landscape and portrait orientation, in color or black and white, and with or without art.

We're waiting on the portrait inserts. Assuming they look good, they'll be available soon. They're now available.

Next up, mini screen!
