Three New Releases for April 2018

At AdeptiCon we debuted three new releases and they are available on the Breaker Press webstore now!

Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Starter Box
This Starter Box is a revised and reimagined version of last year's starter box. The box we brought out to the world through Kickstarter last year contained a lot of stuff, but in retrospect may have been a touch overwhelming to new players. The focus then was on creating a sandbox for players who wanted to create their own characters and crews, but it was too much stuff to make a smooth introduction.

The Day-to-Day Starter Box seeks to resolve that by adding our Introductory Episode Book, The Day-to-Day and keeping the cards and models strictly to those on the sample crew rosters included in the book. The three scenarios are meant to guide the players through progressively more involved Acts, composing a mini-campaign called an Episode. 

The Day-to-Day Starter Box is the perfect introduction to the miniature game, Broken Contract. Contained within are the Broken Contract Rule Book, The Day-to Day Introductory Episode Book, 8 metal miniatures, a game map, 64 cards, 30 chits, 8 character dashboards, 4 dice, and 2 rulers - everything you need to get up and playing Broken Contract.

Note: If you already own last year's Starter Box, you don't need this one. Instead, you want...

Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Introductory Episode Book
Knowing that our existing fan-base already own the previous Starter Box, we chose to make The Day-to-Day Episode Book a product available separately as well. 

The Day-to-Day is the first in a series of Episode books for Broken Contract, and requires the Broken Contract Rulebook to be played. Contained within these pages are three Introductory scenarios, called Acts, that build into a mini campaign that will give the players hours of gaming entertainment as a single Episode, or can be inserted into your own campaigns to be played again and again.

Included in this Episode are three scenarios, background information, four double sided game map tiles, and a sample crew roster.

Tooth Chipper: Wild in the Streets Fanzine Issue #1
Last fall I pitched the idea to Chris at Slow Death Games that I wanted to do fanzine-style gaming supplement for his game, Wild in the Streets. He loved the idea, so we set about collecting a fun batch of scenarios and staging some cool photos to set the scene. Real life suggested music playlists help set the tone for your games as things get ugly at the fur protest or you try to sneak into a 21+ show of your favorite washed-up punk band!

This issue contains five new scenarios: 
-Record Store Day by Chris Kohler 
-Fur Free Friday by Nick Baran 
-Not-So-Secret Sipper by Ash Barker 
-21+ = 0 by Nick Baran 
- Rival Shows by Nick Baran

This fanzine is also packed with references for anyone who wants to start a deep dive into the music subcultures that are the basis for the game, in lieu of the "background" that is found in most game publications.

Stay tuned as we repackage some of our existing range of models, cards, and dice and keep your eyes peeled for our next Kickstarter for some brand new models!

Thanks for reading.

I Wanna Be Your Dog: Canines in DCC

Last year I started a Dungeon Crawl Classics group with my friends. For those that don't know, Dungeon Crawl Classics is meant to be D&D like it is 1975, and touts the catch phrase, "Deadliest Game Alive". During Character Creation one of the characters in our 0-level funnel came up as a herder with a herding dog. The dog, Fetch, has outlived their herder master, and became a beloved Character in a very lethal game. Not surprisingly, the players pushed for Fetch to have the ability to advance. Here is the first draft of the rules if you are interested in my take on Canine Player Characters in DCC.
I Wanna Be Your Dog Canines in Dungeon Crawl Classics by Nick Baran

You’re running a 0-Level Funnel for a group of players who are all dog people. One of the Characters comes up as a Herder with a Herding Dog, and before you know it, the dog is the most cherished member of the party. Treasure be damned, as long as the dog survives!


Canines include any type …

Kickstarters You Should Know About!

I have a lot of friends doing a lot of cool stuff. One of those friends has a project that is currently on Kickstarter. It is called Ruin & Conquest and it is a system-agnostic campaign setting for whatever fantasy RPG you love. Brinton Williams has thrown his heart and soul into this tome and has gathered a whole host of top notch analog artists to bring his vision to gritty black ink on white paper. Go over to Kickstarter and check it out. The funding push will end on Friday October 26th, so don't sleep on it. Also, it looks like his Facebook group could use a boost too, so if you're on Facebook go Like Ruin & Conquest there.

I've never met Jason at Thunderchild Miniatures, but we both ran our first Kickstarters simultaneously a few years back and I have been following his work ever since. He is dedicated to his craft, that is for sure. His next Kickstarter launches this weekend, on Saturday October 20th. This time around he is releasing a miniature board game c…

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…
