Thanks to Stras Acimovic for the photos and the impetus!
At the behest of a member of the Patron Horde, I have put together some handy cards to help spread the word should you find yourself playing Wolfspell or Swords Without Master with someone who has never played before.
The Swords Without Master card comes with its own ritual: The Ritual of the Neophyte–Give the card to someone playing Swords Without Master for the first time and you may celebrate by changing the Overtone to Jovial.
The Wolfspell card also has a rules modification: The Way of Fang & Claw–Give the card to someone playing Wolfspell for the first time to turn a Blood result they just rolled into a Wolf result of the same value.
Feel free to print, share and use these however you wish. They are slightly classier than getting a QR code of www.WorldsWithoutMaster.com tattooed across your back and then insisting people take pictures of it with their phones. I have been told that that is not acceptable and that if I don’t put my shirt back on, I’ll get kicked out of the pub.
As of now, all my own personal fiction that appears in Worlds Without Master, is also available as free PDFs. None of the art, games, comics or articles. And none of the fiction from the other authors. Just my own fiction.
As you may or may not have heard, Swords Without Master was released earlier this week in the latest issue of Worlds Without Master. (If you haven’t picked up a copy for your very own, you can do that here.) Since then, there has been a few requests for ancillary material. Because there is no material quite as exquisite as ancillary material, I had no choice but to oblige.
Behold! A sheet for each one of the Swords Without Master primary character classes, including all the necessary progression tables.
The Lore Phase & Thread
The Lore Phase was intentionally written entirely on one page so that resourceful players could print it out and always have a copy of it on hand should a lore question strike them at an inopportune time. In fact, examples of each tone were put in the summary, just for those moments when you could only find neophytes for Lore Players.
The Patron Horde is damn close to reaching its color cover art funding goal. The days of our ever faithful skull & sword are numbered! These desktop backgrounds are provided in an anticipatory memorial.
Speaking of funding goals, a few months back the ranks of the Patron Horde made it possible for me to purchase a cup of coffee and an official Worlds Without Master coffee mug was born in the resulting celebratory fire.
You can purchase this handsome mug for your very own coffee break over at Society6.
Earlier this week I had a delightful discussion with fellow ezine publishers Mark Diaz Truman, Alex Mayo and Matt Snyder about how Patreon works for this publishing model. But fret not! You have missed nothing. For through the strange sorceries of the the Internet, said discussion has been preserved for all time!
