Exilon Urban Encounters

Patreon Update
new 3fold series of dungeon enhancing kits - the first one is monster generators inspired by Gauntlet. I'm also working through books bit at a time now as more manageable. So this current work is for my Exilon setting and the current update is 123 pages. Will be adding a chapter or two a month and adding to bit by bit instead of trying to make huge books like I did early on all at once.

Other Stuff
My band in Japan now so no 1-2 music sessions a week. Was in an Adelaide Fringe show which was fist time on stage for 7 years or something. Have some more game-writing gigs and some frog-raising 3folds for non-gaming to do. Met lots of comedians and smart ppl. Lots of gaming in Jan but it's fading a bit now for reasons like finding time, medical and other drama. Having another crack at online gaming, but in part, gaming is to get away from consoles and hang with friends.

I have stupidly started a new campaign setting. After playing Turnip28 I'm inspired to make a grungy fantasy environment full of mud, madness, mutants, misery and anachronous tech. Also, a bit inspired by Gus L ruined old magic tech stuff. I have put my unused tablet in bed so I am using my tables her on my tablet to generate a mega-dungeon using the setting. Looking for a name not done already and and ot a slur. More soon on the new setting.

For record in my game witchcraft is unlawful magic especially mind control or harming others. Witches could be innocent victims, angry vindictive people with a spell and short temper or part of a sinister coven of evil.
