It has finally arrived! After over a month of development and editing, the next version in my series of Weird and Wacky Adventure Ideas is finally out. Some of the improvements that you'll see in this new edition are more illustrations, new places and items, better variability in the descriptions, and the addition of guardians to protect all of those mysterious "treasures" that are hidden about. Also, at the end of the book, I have added three new d100 tables to allow for quick generation of Insane items, Dwellings of Doom, and places of Peril for those times when you don't need an entire adventure idea. As a bit of time went into actually reviewing each of the adventure ideas and making edits to make them either more wacky, or more consistent, I toyed with the idea of trying to sell it for $0.50, but in the end, I decided to release it for free. (Donations of course are always accepted, but not expected).
The PDF version can be downloaded from here.
The ePub version can be downloaded from here.
I hope that people find as much enjoyment from reading and using this as I had creating it. Happy Adventuring!
I have been asked about making donations, so I'm including the following links. As I've said, while donations are greatly appreciated, they are absolutely not expected, but should you feel the desire to send a few coins my way, they can be sent to:
Google Wallet: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, don't forget to check back at this blog every Wednesday for a new adventure idea on Weird Adventure Wednesday. :-)

Fittingly this week's Weird Adventure Wednesday begins on a wintry evening. I wonder if the lagoon is frozen?
On a wintry evening you come upon a dandyish theurgist in a busy inn. The theurgist discloses to you that 7 days walk to the northeast, in the Lagoon of the Patriarch, can be found the Devouring Monolith of the Dreaded Adjudicator. It is thought that hidden there is the Whispering Vial of Dreams. But beware, for the theurgist cautions you that it is rumored the Shattered Initiate of Wind slays all who dare approach!

Today's Miniatures Monday depicts a battle between a raging barbarian and a vicious Owlbear. Savagery against savagery amidst some long forgotten ruins, no doubt the Owlbear's lair is nearby.

I've been assembling and basing some Iron Kingdoms miniatures from Privateer Press recently. They are very nice miniatures, if a bit setting specific, but they certainly do take some time to put together. With cleaning the mold lines, j-bonding the parts together, and basing them, these are all that I've managed to build in the last four weeks. Now I just need to wait for the weather to break so that I can prime them and begin painting them. I've got quite a backlog of miniatures already, but I can't seem to stop adding to it. :-)
