There goes the last shred of my OSR-ness

I am beholden to the man now.



Just got paid for writing some D&D 4e stuff.  Not a lot as you can see, but I didn't write a lot either.

Now if I can just get paid some of the other things I did for companies I'd be very happy.

I wish Hasbro would hire more Old School minds to work on their products...

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due:
"I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."

It was easssy wasssn't it....

The article is one on using the new fortune cards in a D&D Basic (Holmes/Moldvay/Cook/Metzer).

No idea when it will be out though.

Nice, man. A writing credit is a writing credit.

Martin R. Thomas said...

I'm with @Christian - congrats on getting published. So many people have that dream and so few actually accomplish it. It takes dedication to actually commit to someone else that you're going to write something and then actually finish it on time. I can speak from experience.

Tim Brannan said...

I have been published before and even wrote an entire core rules book (Ghosts of Albion), I just geeked that this is my first paid-for-real gig writing for D&D.

5stonegames said...

Congrats Tim!

I look forward to the article.

Its always great to be published and know that people out there are having fun with something you wrote.

Now on the 4e thing us folks in the OSR are not into 4e much we ain't that exclusive. We might not think 4e is actually D&D of course but hey whatever floats yer boat ;)

But seriously, good job on your first paid D&D item.

5stonegames said...

I wrote a quick post on this BTW. Its really cool to see Hasbro support B/X even indirectly.

Good show to them (for listening) and to you for the work!

NetherWerks said...

Congratulations. Cash the check. Does this mean that WotC is looking at supporting OOP games like the Basic set? Had to ask...

Tim Brannan said...

I have to say that WotC has seemed open to supporting all versions of the Grand Old Game, it's just that their numbers are effected most by what is for sale now.

Welcome to the Pleasuredome.

Congrats!

:D

Speaking of things that you've written, where could I find a copy of Ghosts of Albion? It sounds interesting, but I can't seem to find it in any of the local stores.

Tim Brannan said...

Ghosts is out in PDF, but should be out in dead tree version sometime.
