Tales from the Sanctum

Card Catalog

Welcome

The Sanctum Secorum podcast plumbs the depths of Appendix N as it applies to DCC RPG. Each show reviews one piece of Appendix N media — be it literature or film — and then discusses how to bring aspects of it to the table for your DCC game. We explore how the selected piece might already easily fit into particular modules and DCC settings, and we highlight one specific DCC module that really ties into the Appendix N material.

Enter the Sanctum Secorum… and be inspired.

The Sanctum Secorum Reading Room: Pilgrimage – The Book of the People

Join two of our Keepers of Mysteries as they discuss Zenna Henderson’s Pilgrimage: The Book of The People, the next in our series exploring the women of Appendix N. Is it truly science fiction by way of Mayberry? You be the judge!

Free RPG Day – Where will you be?

Sadly, Free RPG day has been split into two different events this year, one for North America (June 25), and one for the rest of the world (July 23). Still, divided as the events may be, it is still a celebration of that which unifies us.

Keepers Bob and Jen Brinkman will be at Dungeon Games in Estero, FL along with Judge Troy Tucker, running games and having a good time.

So, where will you be?
