I invite you to doodle.

I'm realling digging the hack. I think it deserves a bit of artwork. But not too professional of artwork. I've got this idea. I want to invite you to create an actual play report of your RBH games in doodle form. Draw stick figures of your warrior chopping the head off a dragon. Or a scribble of the city you just leveled. Put a caption on it. Then scan it and send it to me. I'll take my favorites and put them into the rules.

Consider this:
1. I only want doodles about actual play sessions.
2. If you are really good at drawing, take it down a notch. I want doodles, not kick-ass artwork.

I'm gonna do some doodles too, but I think it would be really awesome if all the artwork in this thing was nothing but fan work.

New character sheet.

I cranked out an updated character sheet this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't have the original layout document to work with, so I had to start from scratch. Somehow the new sheet isn't quite as elegant as the old one. I'll see what I can do to improve on it later on. But, for now, you'll have a sheet with the new rules reflected on it.

It's back!

Tonight, with plenty of help, I've finished the second edition of the Red Box Hack. Tonight or tomorrow I'll be working on a new character sheet and a monster/npc sheet. Take a peek and tell me what you think. Also, let me know if I've missed anything terribly important. Or, you know, if I've suddenly broken your favorite part of the game.

Not dead. Just sleeping

It's been a while since I've put the RBH notes in front of myself. Partly because my computer crashed at the end of October, and I lost all my original notes. But mostly because I've had so many other projects on my plate at once.

But a couple of random fans woke my Hack-inspiration-bug this week and I'm back on it. If you haven't already seen it, check out their actual play post here.

So, I've decided that I'm going to put my nose back on this particular gindstone and try to have a new and improved document available by the end of the week.
