d100 What's in the Dungeon Guard's Footlocker?

Spent two days as paid kids workshop artist at art fair. Big event. Got to see what sells now. Cool to see a girl into colouring books and public collaborator. Lots of 70s photorealism and geometric stuff again, reminded me of my grad show nine years back. But im inspired again.

So I have two game cons, two zine fairs and two art exhibits. Paste-Modernism4 (PM4) a international paste up themed show and a work show. Over rest of year then its time to prep for my annual return to Adelaide, game with old crew and see who among my freaky friends now has children. Will be trying to get full time work or more of my business running again. Xmas a good time to try and finish a book. Will be selling old zine stock this weekend. I have lots of old titles to print for now but would be good if i could have inside a month some gamer zines. Have 3x a4 sheet lair booklets and will do a knock up Elfmaids and octopi table compilation book 36pg A4. A new colouring book as adults are colouring book mad right now. I will make some PDFs available for collectors or put on LuLu. My older conspiracy books alas are taken as gospel by loonies and they are not as funny as they were ten years ago. Spicy Pony secret fantasy number #7 is half done too. A graffiti or hipster art colouring book could all be done too under the Hobo Press licence. This means anyone in the book can produce and sell copies as they please. Nobody else can. All artworks are owned by artists and cannot be reproduced or copied without permission of individual art creator or owner.  

Dungeon Foot Lockers
Dungeon monsters with good pay get a footlocker as a status symbol. Something they can carry or watch a slave struggle with. Something to put at the foot of your bed. Something to keep your holy signs, ancestral tokens, grog and booty in. Poor dungeons only the boss monsters get them but they are very common by any bed in a dungeon or occasionally in storage.
