Google+ is going away.
I can’t overstate the role it has played in my life over the years. So many gaming friends made and so many games I first learned about on G+ and then came to love. The game design community over there has been amazing. It might not be the end of the world, but I will miss it dearly when it’s gone.
I made an account on MeWe. But its not the same thing, not yet anyway. Who knows what will come
Life goes on. There’s a Facebook group for Wilhelm’s Games now. Join it if you want to chat about my games, or need help with the rules or something.
Browsing through my old G+ posts I found this picture of me advertising a sale of my Sci-Fi RPG While the World Ends. Since then there has been a new edition of the game, illustrated by Claudia Cangini.
It would be a shame to not make use of the picture, so I made a discount link for the new edition. Click the picture and you can pick up the PDF for $3.33 over on DriveThruRPG.
My slow horror RPG OKULT is now available in German translation. You can find it at the usual places.
When I did the layout of the book I couldn’t get the original layout files that we used to do the English edition. So the German edition has a different layout than the English one. It also has a slightly different selection of images, as I couldn’t find the high resolution files of the images that we used in the first round. Anyway, it is still the same game.
To celebrate I have made a discount bundle at DriveThruRPG which contains both the new German edition and the old English one. So if you haven’t picked it up already, now is a great opportunity to do so.

Framtiden är en mörk dystopi.
Alla farhågor om naturkatastrofer, krig, sjukdom och svält besannades, och de slog med större kraft än vad någon kunnat föreställa sig.
Men människan reste nya städer till skydd, och städerna växte lager på lager, nytt ovanpå det gamla.
På de nedersta nivåerna lever de allra fattigaste i trängsel och yttersta misär.
Längst upp går det klara dagar att skymta en blå himmel bortom molnen. Där lever megakorporationernas elit bekymmersfria liv i extremt välstånd.
Och mellan dessa ytterligheter pulserar staden av liv.
Sedan i maj förra året har jag tillsammans med en projektgrupp skrivit ett nytt cyberpunkrollspel i klassisk svensk stil. Slå grundegenskaper med 3t6, slå mot färdigheterna med t100, bråka med gäng, bli förföljd av en ond AI, planera en stöt mot ett företag.
Hundra sidor rollspel med fantastiska illustrationer av Elizabeth Porter.
Köp det nu på Lulu eller DriveThruRPG!
The Daughters of Verona is back in print, sort of. I have put all the cards and the rules into a booklet which is available via Lulu. The center pages can be lifted from the book, and then cut down with scissors to make the two decks of cards needed to play the game.
The game was already available as a PDF via DriveThruRPG, but this booklet edition will allow those who don’t have access to a color printer to still make a play set in color.
The paper in the booklet is surprisingly sturdy, but for durability I propose that you put the cards in standard sized card sleeves (e.g. those suitable for Magic the Gathering, any fine local game store can help you pick the right ones). Get 100 sleeves, or 50 each of two different colors if you want to separate character cards from story cards by color (not necessary for play).
At last, five months since the crowdfunding, the illustrated version of While the World Ends is completed. The full color illustrations were made by Claudia Cangini earlier this year.
With this edition I have gone over the text to make it easier to understand, and some rules have been clarified, but not changed.
From a play perspective there is no need to upgrade, but if you want the new version for the pictures you can get it here: While the World Ends Upgrade bundle.
The pictures are mostly complete. Claudia is laying the final touch on them.
And while I’ve been waiting I have done another editing run on the text, hopefully it will be even easier to get into the game now.
