Must...Organize...Useless...Ideas...

Once upon a time this blog had zero followers. Assuming you are reading this before the end of all things, it probably now has more than that. Here's a highlight reel for anybody who might've jumped in mid-stream.

WTF is This Blog?

Our TV Show (episode 18 is the best, they let us kinda do what we wanted starting around episode 5, the ones starting at 8ish are the most popular)
Yeah, We Were In Maxim
The "players" tag has all the articles about the girls themselves
The "actual play" tag has all the actual play reports
I did Red & Pleasant Land which is a very well-regarded game book
Likewise Vornheim
I also did the deluxe rewrite of the DIY D&D classic Death Frost Doom
These three things are available here.
New one, Maze of the Blue Medusa is available here.
Most of the other stuff I invented for my D&D setting that's up on this blog is indexed here.
I have a new horror game I'm writing and drawing here, if you wanna see it finished chip in to the Patreon here.

How I Want To HearAbout Your Setting

Dwindling (a good thing about crunch)





Allegedly funny










Cathedral of All-Flesh (A dungeon)

Galleries of the Nyctites (A slightly bigger dungeon)

Zak, I may be blind, but did you post your answers to the GM Questionnaire anywhere?

Zak S said...

no

I don't suppose you have any tips for how to get more followers?

Zak S said...

@syrus w

Easiest way: consistently write posts i want to read. Then you're on my blogroll, then you get followers.

It's interesting going back to read some of your earlier posts.

Sometimes I forget where the ideas and discussions that had a large influence on how I think about the game came from. The Conan knew more about Cimmeria one in particular was a pretty key one.

A good long run you've had here.

Zak, I ran across your blog (and IHIWMA) at just the right time. I'm digging your rules-light, seat of the pants approach. I've been flopsweating (sweating flop?) because I'm slated to run a D&D game for a group of RPG newbies in the 11 to 16 age range and realized:

a) I haven't run a game for teenagers since I was a teenager (so late 80s early 90s), and

b) even though I've started up lots of newbies, I've been running pretty much the same player group for 7 years and

c) it's 3.5/Pathfinder, so lots of crunch.

Man, I wish I could buy you a beer and pick your brain for a couple hours! I guess instead I'll have to troll your blog some more. Thanks!

Zak,

Somehow I ended up at your blog today (must have opened the door to the treasure room). Great posts, awesome art, cool to find out about the girls as real people, and very impressed with you.

Welcome to the rabbit hole

Zak, I know it's been a year since you posted this. Have you switched to a color picture? I think I have the right Zak Smith . . .

Zak S said...

Hey I dunno if you have heard of this but have you guys seen ultimumrpg.com I have just started getting into RPG style games and what I heard about the game, and the art being awesome really drew me in. I figured you guys might be interested, and awesome group of people to play with!

Dear all, hi! I'm the editor of a Brazilian pop culture website called JUDÃO (www.judao.com.br) and I would love to have an interview with you to talk about the project. It could be through e-mail, no problem at all, I can send you all my questions. Just let me know, please? Thanks a lot! My e-mail: thiagocardim at gmail.com

...I couldn't help but notice that you listed Simonson's Thor saga as inspiration. I can still picture the Executioner with an M-16 in each hand holding off the hordes of Hell. I'm in!
