Dungeon23 & Omega City

Introductory essay to the Omega City ashcan, released for the 2023 convention season. The idea for Dungeon23 started on Twitter, in a challenge from Mothership creator Sean McCoy to celebrated tabletop RPG writer Luke Gearing: Megadungeon for 2023. 12 levels. 365 rooms. One room a day. Keep it all in a journal. ⁦@LukeGearing⁩ let’s do this. From there, the concept exploded, with hundreds of TTRPG creators taking up the challenge. I knew I wanted in, but had some freelance work to finish plus a number of projects already in the pipeline. I’d released We Deal in Lead, my weird west TTRPG love ..read more

3M ago
This past weekend, I returned to exhibit at the Thought Bubble convention, following on from a successful experience in 2022. Thought Bubble is a comic art festival held annually in Harrogate, UK and I’ve been a regular attendee since 2015. Thought Bubble is primarily for comics and comic art, but there’s a growing contingent of TTRPG tables, this year including Parable Games, Peregrine Coast Press, Rowan, Rook and Decard, and Stoat Stout Press (among others). As previously, I wanted to document my experience as a TTRPG exhibitor, covering the highs and lows, expenses, revenue, and set-up/brea ..read more

I was lucky enough to be invited to speak with an MA Worldbuilding with Creature Design class at Leeds Arts University earlier this month. Here’s a rough outline of what I spoke about. Thanks to Ben and all the students for making me feel welcome and for asking some thoughtful, interesting questions!

Dark Souls: Tome of Strange Beings

1y ago
I’ve been sitting on this news since last year, but I’m happy to announce I’m one of the writers on Tome of Strange Beings, the new bestiary for Dark Souls: The Roleplaying game. More information will come soon from Steamforged Games, but for now I want to say how surreal it still feels. Just a few years ago I had the idea to make my own TTRPG inspired by Dark Souls, something which eventually become Runecairn, and now I’m being asked to work on an official adaptation of the game and adapt some of the most evocative and challenging video game bosses in recent history. Not only was this my firs ..read more

Print & PDF: Easy Digital Downloads in Shopify

I’ve been asked a few times about my process for sending out digital downloads (PDFs) when people buy physical books from my shop. Rather than using 3rd party plugins, I use Shopify’s built-in functionality to automatically add a download link to confirmation emails. You can use Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or any other file-sharing service capable of generating a public link. If you’re interested in using this method for your Shopify instance, here’s the process: 1. Adding a New Metafield Add a new Metafield by going to Settings -> Metafields -> Products and clicking on Add Definiti ..read more

ZiMo Project 2023: Call for an Indigenous Writer
By Odin’s Beard RPG
by Colin Le Sueur
1y ago
18 months ago (or 100 years, time is all weird thanks to COVID), I released a book on Kickstarter for Zine Quest 3, Mysteries of the Mists. Zine Quest is a loose collection of TTRPG projects on Kickstarter, typically in a lightweight zine format (under 20 pages, staple-bound). Last year, with all the talk from Kickstarter about crypto and blockchain, some in the TTRPG industry started their own, KS-less initiative called Zine Month (or ZiMo). I didn’t make anything for ZiMo last year but this year I’m trying something different. I’ll be publishing a new short adventure for We Deal in Lead, my ..read more
