This morning I got a message from one of my freelance artists, Carlos Castilho, asking where he should direct people to find out more about a project he did art for (it was for Hillwood Camp Zine, by the way.) But, all I could think of was to direct him to the Kickstarter page, which really isn't that helpful.

Then I remembered that the actual link leads folks here. This blog was last updated in February of 2021, so that isn't particularly helpful either. A lot has changed in almost 2 years since that last post and it seems I've reached a point where I need a more centralized "site of operations". Today is not the day to take on that project, however. Instead, here are the places to get the most up-to-date info on Breaker Press Games.

I'm fairly active on Patreon, Twitter, and YouTube. 

Patreon (new content, WIP content, design blog stuff):

Twitter (general ramblings, links to my new stuff, friend's stuff):

YouTube (monthly BPG Updates, design videos, story shorts):

I'm actually eligible to get a personalized channel name now, so I should get on that.

Some Quick Updates:

I'm working on trying to finish The Protectorate of Jenulane right now. That was supposed to ship in spring of this year, 2022, but my life went through some huge changes that threw that schedule off dramatically. It will hopefully start shipping at the end of this month.

I also have to ship Cleft in the Mangled Hills and Hillwood Camp Zines. These will hopefully be ready to ship in January. Same issues as The Protectorate of Jenulane, i.e. life. But they, thankfully, are not quite as late as they were supposed to ship in September 2022 (which as of right now was only a month ago.)

In the meantime, support Breaker Press Games by buying the stuff we have out there, or join the Breaker Press Games Patreon.

Before I go, here's the piece of art Carlos wanted to show off...

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 Art by Nerdgore 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! CANINE Cani
