ToAD Monster of the Week: Crocoman

Now that I'm back doing the blog thing I thought I would use Tome of Adventure Design to create monsters for The Black Hack.

Using the monster tables in the book I rolled up these results:
52 - Humanoid
20 - Roll once on the beast table
24 - Crocodile
3 - Give it a human head
22 - Minor Special Attack
78 - Poison (nonlethal)

With those results I have created:
Crocoman - HD 3
Claws - STR (1 close) 4 dmg
Swamp fever! Creatures hit are weakened for ud6 minutes.

(Sketch by me)

The Podcast has Returned

Some of you may remember that I started up a podcast back in 2018. Though, less than ten episodes in I was done recording. I believe what got in the way was work and I just neglected it (and other creative things). Well, I started recording again back in November 2019 and it has been going much better. Now, I don't have the same listener count that I did back when I started but that's fine. I really just enjoy recording the episodes and interacting with other podcasters that use Anchor for publishing their shows.

You can find my podcast pretty much anywhere you listen to podcasts. Just search: JB Publishing

Now, I've been on the fence with keeping that name or not. Since JB Publishing was my old publishing name before The Lone Bards. But I am keeping it that for now since I just don't have any good ideas of what I would want to change it to (though I do want to change it).

Currently, I've been recording episodes that I've been calling, Deep Dive into the Black Hack. Which are review episodes of the Black Hack book. Most episodes have been around forty-fives minutes or so. Which, I know that can be a chore to listen to for others who may not have the time or don't want to spend too much time on a single show. But I've been enjoying recording those episodes (though they are very draining on me). Once I'm done with The Black Hack I would like to record a deep dive for Bloat Games' The Blackest of Deaths.

Other things I've been talking about my podcasts have been: Zine Quest 2, Rolling up characters with my wife, campaign settings, game session reports and more.

So if you are interested and you have the time to listen to podcasts please search mine and subscribe to it! Again, that's JB Publishing

Still alive...For Now

This is just a quick update to let you know that I’m still around.
Yes, I’ve neglected this blog for a long time. But I’m coming back to it.
A lot has been going on with my life (work, real life and the hobby).
This is going to be a space where I talk about things that are difficult to do over a podcast or just too short to share on that. And yes, I’ve started updated my podcast as well.
You can find that anywhere you listen to podcasts. Just search: JB Publishing
So don’t worry. More posts are coming soon.
By the way, who here is a fan of The Black Hack?
I ask cause there will be a lot on that here.
