Playtesters and Creatives Wanted!


The Broken Contract Miniature Starter Set Kickstarter is winding down, but our plans for Broken Contract are only ramping up!

The beta rulebook is up and available for free download. Also, they are not necessary for play, but the 'It's Time' Game Board, Initiative and Equipment Card Decks, and Character Stat Cards are all up for free download as well. A quick trip to a copier and you are ready to go.


We want your involvement in the development of this game. We want you to read the rules and play it. We want your feedback on how it played and how clear the rules were. We are shooting to launch another Kickstarter for the rulebook and more models in the Fall and we want your help to make it the coolest action and adventure game possible by then.

It doesn't end there. We want you to produce content like Acts (scenarios) and short campaigns (Episodes). We want to see your writing, your art, and your painted models and scenery. We want you to share those things with the world. We want your engagement and we will support you all along the way, so get involved!

Feedback can be sent to:

  1. Is there anyway to group the game files into one large download?

  2. Give me a day and I'll get them all together in a single file. I had everything separate so that I can update a single component if I needed to and then everyone wouldn't have to download everything again.

November 5: New Breaker Miniature Range Kickstarter!

In less than a week we will be running our next Kickstarter. This one is to fund the manufacture and expansion of our Breaker range of miniatures. If you've been following Breaker Press for a while, you've probably seen images of some of these sculpts appear over the last year and a half (yes, the gears grind slowly at Breaker Press). It is finally time to send them to the caster, but we need your help. We are starting things off with the two Gen-Mods that we've been sitting on for quite some time. These will be the basis for the Kickstarter campaign. The campaign is going to start small - we just need to raise enough money to cast and ship these two models.
If the campaign goes well, the Stretch Goals will be determined by you, the community. The first Survey went up and the first Stretch Goal will be for the female Breaker Crew Leader.
Hopefully, we can work our way through all of the concept art depicted on the ad at the top of this post, and then move onto some addit…

I'm an Outsider: Outlier Characters in DCC

I’m an Outsider, Outside of Everything Outlier Player Characters in DCC by Nick Baran
Art by Nerdgore The concept of a Player Character with outdoor skills has firm footing in fantasy literature, but not every solitary woodsperson is a benevolent ranger. There is also the survivalist hunter, and the thieving brigand roaming the hills and forests. The Outlier emphasizes the varied motivations and skills of those that live off the land, whether they seek to protect it, or take what they need from it, outside of the governance of “civil” society.

(Editor’s note: The traditional Ranger of AD&D does not fit with the “You’re no hero” philosophy espoused by DCC, but many folks love the wilderness skills associated with the class. In the 80’s, I was in love with the Bandit character class that was featured in Dragon Magazine #63 and Best of Dragon Vol. 4. It was a cool mash up of Thief and Ranger themed skills that I really connected with and had a lot of fun playing. With no official Range…

Post #100: Rules, Background, and Cards! (Updated!)

For AdeptiCon 2016 I produced a very short run of Broken Contract Rule and Background books. I don't want anyone who didn't attend feeling left out on the contents so I've collected the files and uploaded them to Dropbox, along with a PDF file handy for printing out your own Character Dashboards and chits so you can get up and playing with the models and cards in your possession. I did deliberately omit the covers of both books for home printing. If you would like to see the covers added, let me know and I will do so.

What is in the Broken Contract Background Book?

The Broken Contract Background Book is an overview of the FerrumSky setting. In a way, much of it is a collection of essays that were prompted by questions that my editor, Rob Ferrick, has posed to m…
