Some Risus News

I'd be remiss if I didn't pass along the following items of interest to the Risus community:

- 1 -
S. John Ross is on the verge of producing a new series of short adventures for Risus. The idea is that he would fund these with Kickstarter and then give them away for free if they achieved their funding goals. Count me in! A Kringle in Time is one of my favorite published adventures in any system and I'd love to see more adventures that captured that groovy official Risus vibe.

- 2 -
Busy beaver that he is, S. John has also squeezed the entirety of the Risus rules onto a single (two-sided) page/pamphlet. Get the file here, print it out, and convert the uninitiated by strategically placing it around conventions, game stores, community notice boards, libraries, and coffee shops.

Brent Wolke is back with the Thwaak. His new eight-page setting is called We the People. This time it's colonial fantasy, focusing on the secret war between Freemasons and the Illumninati during an alternate American Revolution. I confess that I have a not-so-secret desire to run a colonial fantasy game and this is the template that I'd use if I ended up running the game with Risus
