Welcome To The Thunderdome


The inaugural episode of our monthly podcast Gonzo Up Your Ass! is available.  Aaron the Pedantic and I had a nice little chat about how to make your RPG sessions more gonzo and/or metal.

If you're checking this blog post out on a mobile device, the video may not show up.  In that case, here is a direct link to the YouTube video. 

Have a question or suggestion about gonzo/metal in your game?  Let us know so we can talk about it.



p.s. Only a short time left to back my Saving Cha'alt kickstarter.  Back it to get more bang for your buck - as many as 7 eldritch, gonzo, science-fantasy, post-apocalyptic scenarios!

Cyborg Tomato


Not sure how I happened upon this, but it's awesome and gameable and it's going into Saving Cha'alt... somewhere somehow.  

As luck would have it, I needed a gimmick for the A.I. patrolling the prison-city known as Sanz Egra'as.  Cyborg tomato it is, then.  


If you haven't backed the Kickstarter yet, there's only 9 days left.  What are you waiting for?

Gonzo Up Your Ass!


Aaron the Pedantic and I will be tag-teaming a new hour-long, once a month podcast that will showcase how you can make your D&D more gonzo and/or metal.

How did this all come about?  Aaron was dismayed that Mork Borg gave you fish rather than teaching you how to fish, when it comes to metal-izing your adventures and campaign.  Well, Aaron and I want to teach you how to fish.  

For those who don't know, Metallica wanted to call their first album Metal Up Your Ass, but the pussy record company wouldn't allow it, so they came up with Kill 'Em All, instead.  Since this podcast is for both gonzo and metal, I thought Gonzo Up Your Ass had a nice ring to it.  ;)

The first show is Tuesday night, February 23rd (7:30-8:30pm central standard time).  Aaron also got his logo guy to make this badass thing over here.  Sweet!

Thanks for your continued support, everyone.


p.s. Almost forgot about the Saving Cha'alt kickstarter.  It's awesome, please back it!!!

Larry Flynt: Space Hustler


It's obvious to me that without Larry Flynt, there might not be an Alpha Blue RPG.  And what a tragedy that would be for the universe!

I just found out that he died.  Champion of free speech and lover of all things sleazy... RIP, hoss.

From now until Monday, I'm bringing 3 Alpha Blue titles to the low, low price of $1.  

It all started with Alpha Blue.  That gets you in the mood while teaching you everything you need to play.

Girls Gone Rogue is the first Alpha Blue supplement.  More options, random tables, and scenarios.

An even bigger and nastier supplement is Universal Exploits. It's got everything! 

I tried to make everything as rules-light, gameable, humorous, sexy, and sci-fi as I could.  Anyway, enjoy.  Pour a Purple Prizm out for one of my heroes, Larry Flynt.  If you want to read about the man, this is as good a place as any.


p.s. Yep, my Saving Cha'alt kickstarter is going for another couple weeks.  Back it now before you have to pay retail [shudders uncontrollably].

WotC Apology for Stuff of Legends


Here it is.  After the twitter backlash, we all knew it was coming.  Wizards apologies for Stuff of Legends.  Read their letter below...

Dear fans, customers, and D&D community;

It has come to our attention that Stuff of Legends, our new D&D web series involving "muppets" has negatively impacted those sensitive to such things.  While many in our toxic culture would call you social justice warriors, virtue signaling twerps, and complete idiots, we understand.  We hear you.  And we're there for you.

Obviously, large breasts, as well as the platemail which bouys them, is sexist and awful, probably racist, too, and no doubt the product of straight white male terrorism in our very midst.  

Furthermore, even though the character's name is quite amusing, we now realize that humor is the enemy.  Remember, while you're laughing, fascism is rising!  Joking around is forbidden at the gaming table, unless of course, everyone has checked the box on the consent checklist.  But even then, don't do it.  No laughing!

Henceforth, we will be calling this Tiddy-gate.  Heads will roll.  Heads as giant and round as that muppet's tiddies.  So it shall be!
