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.

#Dicember2021 Day 1

The #DICEMBER2021 challenge is to produce something dicey / RPG / dice game-related each day of December and release it with the #DICEMBER or #DICEMBER2021 tag.

This can be a blog or social media post, a drawing of something RPG-related, a drawing or photograph of actual dice, a random table or die-drop table for us to chuck dice on, etc. The field is wide open, make it dice-related, and honestly, decide for yourself whether you are following the prompts or doing your own thing. We’re cool with it either way.

Dice on!

#Dicember is the creation of Brian Bird

News: Jungle Tomb of the Mummy Bride Kickstarter

Friend of the show Levi Combs from Planet X (does that make him a Lectroid?) has a new product up on kickstarter right now and it looks amazing!

Literally.

With art by folks such as Diogo Noguiera, Adrian Landeros, Karl Stjernberg, and others, the Jungle Tomb of the Mummy Bride is chock-full of eye candy the likes of which we’ve rarely seen. Of course, the adventure sounds like a great time too.

Tales of the accursed pyramid and the trap-filled tomb of the infamous Mummy Bride have long been a traveler’s tale, passed along by wayward explorers and greedy plunderers alike. Deep within the verdant jungles of the south, amidst a Green Hell of impenetrable jungle, bloodthirsty cannibals and ancient myth, lies the shattered remnants of a once-powerful civilization and the terrible gods who ruled over them. Rumors swirl of untold riches and un-plundered magic for those brave (or foolish!) enough to claim it. Will your players survive… and what will be left of them?

Inspired by the pulp weird fantasy of Gary Gygax’s infamous Appendix N, Jungle Tomb of the Mummy Bride is designed for a group of four to six 3rd level characters.

You can jump aboard and join the adventure by backing it here. We have, of course, backed it at the hardcover level with enough of an add-on for the paperback as well. The library of the Sanctum Secorum looks forward to this latest addition to our collections.

Have you been wanting to lay hands on some original DCC art, but you don’t make it to the “big four” (Gen Con, Gary Con, Gamehole, and North Texas RPG) cons? Well, if you are near Bowling Green, Ohio? Well, you are in luck!

Saturday, beginning at 10am, Bradley K. McDevitt will be selling original art at the Stacked Deck (Bowling Green’s FLGS) during the Black Swamp Arts Festival. So head on out and say hi, pick up some art, and support our DCC community of artists and FLGS.

News: Rick Loomis (1947-2019)

The Sanctum Secorum is saddened to hear of the passing of another gaming legend. It is being reported by Full Metal RPG that Rick Loomis has passed away. Rick was one of the founding members of GAMA and served as its President several times. He founded Flying Buffalo Games in 1970, publishing Tunnels & Trolls, the Nuclear War Card Game, Grimtooth’s Traps and so much more.

Worse, even though he has passed, his struggles continue. In February he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. Even though he is a US army veteran and qualifies for medicare, his portion of the medical bills are in the tens of thousands of dollars placing a burden on his family and threatening the future of Flying Buffalo Games.

His family has started a GoFundMe to help cover the medical bills and Bundle of Holding currently has a bundle available to help defray these costs as well.

The passing of Rick Loomis diminishes us all.
