Hi everyone! This month my indie TTRPG is on sale for just $1! The Magical Land of Yeld is a game about children from our world who discover a secret door to a magical land, but get trapped there! They have to find a way to escape before they turn 13 and become monsters! The game is written by myself and my brother Nick Smith, with hundreds of illustrations and comics drawn by me. If you're looking for a new TTRPG, please try Yeld. I think you'll like it! Buy the PDF at www.drivethrurpg.com/product/2565...

If you like original art you might want to check out the Modest Medusa store today. I’ve had some unexpected expenses this Spring so I’ve decided to offer some original art I’ve been holding onto. This includes the original art for Modest Medusa strips 3-12, as well as some more recent pieces. So if you’re interested in the very oldest Modest Medusa strips, check out this sale. These includes the first full appearance of Modest and Marah, the first time Modest speaks, her first Chocodile and more! I’ve signed each strip and added a small character sketch along the bottom! You can see the full sale here.

Hi everyone! You know that RPG I'm always posting art for? The Magical Land of Yeld? For the rest of the month we’re offering the digital version of the Yeld RPG for just $1 (or pay what you want). If you don’t have it you can get it from DrivethruRPG at the link below. Even if you’re not a gamer the book contains a ton of info about Yeld and art that you might appreciate as Modest Medusa readers. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/256555/The-Magical-Land-of-Yeld Why this drastic sale? I’m sure you noticed that the Dungeons & Dragons community is going nuts and everyone and their dog is declaring that they’re going to ditch D&D and try new games. We’d like to take this opportunity to grab as many new players as we can and invite them to our community. We think offering our game at a ridiculously low price is our best chance to do that (since we can’t afford expensive things like ads). If you bought our game in the past we appreciate your support so much, and this sale isn’t

I picked up "the Magical Land of Yeld" yesterday.

I liked the gameplay mechanics and the backstory, not to mention the artwork. ^_^

Would you ever consider creating an expansion with another story-arc, perhaps directly involving the Arsenal of Winter?

I'm glad you liked it!

Yes, we will be doing more story-arcs/campaigns, including one that is all about the Arsenal. But the Arsenal's story won't come for awhile. Our next Core Book (Kickstartering this year, I hope) will include a new campaign that can be played along side or instead of the Hunters of Yeld campaign for the first Core book. We also plan a campaign set around Sarensang/Pirate Bay, and probably a campaign involving the Deep. In addition, the Rank 1 Adventure Set, which will be out soon, includes a mini campaign designed for starting characters.

Now that the game's groundwork has been established we're eager to start telling more stories.

Something to look forward to! :)

I liked the nod to Gary Gygax, too. ;)

Will there ever be an Arneson-based spell?

Maybe eventually. I'll need to do some research first.

oh jake :>

modest would probably like this xD

Oh god, she would. She would love that. She'd love it so much she might nit even want to eat it.
