YUMDM In 2022

YUMDM in 2022

I wanted to write a post showing all the upcoming stuff I have planned for 2022.

It’s a little cliche, but I am hoping I can refer back to this and it will keep me on track, as well as letting you know what’s coming up this year.

The following are some of what I have planned:

Update: I have also created a month-by-month update of my achievements thus far.

12 New Zines

Of course I will be keeping up publishing my flagship product, my d12 Monthly zine each month. I will also be adding new content based on feedback I have gotten from patrons and fans.

New Mini-Zine

I will be publishing a new mini-zine, d12 Sites, which be for patrons only and feature a new location you can easily drop into your D&D campaign and have endless adventure with.

Kickstarter

I will be Kickstarting an semi-annual book with 6-months worth of zine articles, with all new artwork and in full colour.

Monster Manual

I will be putting together a series of D&D monster manuals (each focusing on a particular creature type), using my own new stat block with compatibility with most editions of the game. And using quality B&W artwork from many indie artists. This will be up on Kickstarter in the latter half of 2022.

Mini-Dungeon Solo Crawl Game

I created a mini-dungeon crawl game while bed-ridden for a few days (mostly to keep my mind active), but it turned out pretty well, and thought I would release it on here when I have polished it a little more.

More SoloRPG

      • DnD – continue my many campaigns
      • Star Wars – set post-RotJ, playing as a scavenger and using the D6 WEG system
      • Twilight 2000 – using original rules. Mission is to get back to Berlin from behind enemy lines
      • Mutant Chronicles – A freelance finding his way in the world

New TTRPG

I am working on a new table-top roleplaying game, based on the 3rd edition of Dungeons and Dragons. Does the world need another TTRPG? Probably not, but I feel it will add something that I haven’t found out in the wild yet.

It will also mean I can play the game of D&D solo that I love the most.

It will have all the goodness of 3rd edition D&D, while making it much simpler to grasp and some old school sensibilities and rules thrown in. It will also include some of the better modern hacks from some previously published games.

Podcasts

I will be publishing a quarterly podcast with Jon from Tale of the Manticore and Ian from Black Dragon Games, talking about various topics and answering questions from fans. You can listen to the first one already. Plus the second one.

I am also looking at starting a more regular podcast looking behind the scenes of making my zines – what decisions I made and why I published what I did. And what got cut!

Blogging

I will be continuing blogging on here and also on some other website as the mood and opportunity arise.

Secret Project

I am also working on a secret zine-related project for my patrons (and whoever else is interested), which I hope will add even more value to the zines.

Other Ideas

I will also, no doubt, come up with some new ideas throughout the year – I will update this post as they cement themselves.

I hope you continue to join me on this journey of making products for the game I love. Thanks for all your support thus far – it means a great deal.

Let me know what you think about my schedule so far in the comments below or over on Twitter.

While Your Here…

Since 2021 I have been publishing a monthly zine, which has a ton of articles for any edition of Dungeons & Dragons.

They are also available on DriveThruRPG and printed copies are available via my Patreon.

I also have a growing Discord, where you can join in on my regular West Marches campaign.

I will also be releasing some more products in the near future, like several monster manuals and a series of soloRPG publications.

Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter any time.
