Well the box arrived and I am having a blast going through the booklets...

Steve, I have to say this effort is tremendous... I love the simple mechanics, old-skool art, and value!

This is a neat set, I'll pick up a production version too.  Please post again with updates...  

Thanks for making it available!


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

The new version of the S&SS Player's Book can now be downloaded at my company's website:

The new boxed set will be released at NTRPGCon 2015, and available for order after that. Enjoy!

If you're going to NTRPGCon this year, I just got a couple of S&SS games added to Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. I'll be running a S&SS funhouse dungeon crawl called "Demon Castle from Outer Space." Don't forget enrollment for NTRPGCon games starts tonight at midnight; I hope to see y'all there!

Here are the first two boxed sets I've made, including some never before seen art. The mullet gamer from the RC returns...

Also included is the cover for the adventure I will be running at NTRPGCon 2015: The Castle that Fell from the Sky. I'm not sure if it will be available by the Con, though.

I love my original box set.  It screams "Authentic old school!" from the rafters.  I would love to have it not scream when I am asleep, but it's not trained very well...

I picked mine up at NTX, too. It is a steal at the price. Don't miss it.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

And Laggamundo would like to have his finger back, but what cha gonna do? :lol:

Thanks for the kind words; I regret I didn't set aside one of the proto-types for myself. Ah well, won't be making that mistake again!

Below are a couple of new things I've begun to print: S&SS character sheets (on goldenrod paper) and Pandora's Box.

Image

Image

The boxes aren't super sturdy or professionally printed or anything, they're candy boxes with adhesive labels. The new S&SS box is about 1" x 5&1/2" x 9&3/8", and the Pandora's Box is a larger box for folks looking to store digest-sized books (it is the same dimensions as the S&SS box, but is 2" deep instead of 1".)

I'm just now finding out the material cost and the amount of labor needed to make everything, since everything is assembled by hand. I don't have the pricing worked out yet, but I try to keep stuff cheap and affordable. The prices and manufacturing methods are definitely "Authentic old school!" :D

I have to say that I picked this up and NTRPG Con and really like it.

I'm curious, are any of the first boxed sets still available?  :D And when will the module be available.

I also want to point out that the Six-Sider it refers to is a six sided die.  When I first saw this, I took the Six-Sider to be a revolver and thought the game was a mash up of D&D and Boot Hill.  :oops:  I'm probably the only one that made that wild assumption but I did want to point that out just in case someone else hit their head really hard.   :roll:


Carpe DM!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

The OCE boxed sets sold out with a waiting list left hanging. Man, if I ever get my hands on one of those original boxed sets again, I'm putting it up on Ebay! :lol: Seriously, once I get the current set out there, if there is still demand for the original version, I'll probably end up do a second print run at some point. I think the new set is superior in every way, but I know some people gotta have a complete set.

So far you're the only one that's mentioned to me about associating six-siders with revolvers. :wink: At this point, it don't matter, because I already have a pile of boxed sets printed out and assembled. :D

I'm holding off on taking orders until I get the adventure done. I'm only several drawings away from completing it, and it won't take any time to print. It looks like I'll start taking orders this weekend or next week. I'll post here when its up.

In the meantime, if y'all like you can read the NTRPGCon play reports of S&SS at Vanquishing Leviathan LLC

I had a blast. Thanks Doug for posting my games at the last minute, and thanks to everyone who played. It would have been really embarrassing if no one had signed up!

Starting tonight I'm giving up sleeping until the art is done, otherwise it'll never get done! :D

When I start to take orders, I'll list the merchandise, prices, S&H, here and on my website, and I'll take the orders through paypal. If you need to contact me (if you are outside the CONUS), please do so through my company e-mail (on my website), as I'm on several forums and forum PMs sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Thanks!
