Hey, true-believers! It’s been a quiet week here in D3land, so I thought I’d turn the spotlight on some of our older products!
Who here plays superhero games? Good, because here is a supers product you might not have seen yet: USA-50 West!
The best nation on Earth deserves the best heroes for its defense. Whether they walk the boulevards of Hollywood, look over the oil fields of the North Slope, or can hike the Grand Canyon on the way to grandma’s house, the heroes of the western United States stand strong in the face of injustice.
They are the chosen few, the best super-heroes each state of the union can offer, forged into a team that makes a mighty weapon against evil. They help you make sure you know who’s running the country. They protect the USA from all enemies, foreign and domestic, and the Attorney General has them on speed-dial.
With glorious four-color artwork by such gaming luminaries as Brian LeBlanc (White Wolf) and Andy Taylor (ICONs), USA-50: West offers up half-a-continent’s worth of stare-themed superheroes ready to drop into any Champions campaign! At 118 pages for the low price of $7.95, USA-50 is… dare we say it. a SUPER deal!
So put on your domino mask and your union suit, strap on your cape, descend into your secret headquarters under your mansion, and heroically point your mouse towards http://www.rpgnow.com/product/86910/USA50-West to augment your Arsenal of Justice!
That’s it for this week, do-gooders! Next week, I promise to stop pretending to be Stan Lee.. but ‘til then, true believers, keep’em flying, keep gaming, and take it EZ with D3!

Take it EZ with D3!
Last week, we promised you some thrills, chills, and mysteriously creaking floors, and today, Michael Surbrook kept his promise!
Get ready for Halloween several months early with the latest Surbrook’s Stuff. Empty Rooms and Vacant Windows details how to create haunted houses for the Hero System. With sections on the different varieties of haunted houses (everywhere from deep in the local swamp to deep in space), how to populate said haunted houses, and common tropes of the haunted house genre, this pdf is your one-stop shopping mall for giving your players some nightmares.
As if that were not enough, Empty Rooms and Vacant Windows also offers the Old Skinner Place as a sample haunted house. It seems that Old Man Skinner killed himself back in the ‘thirties, and never really left the house. But his ghost is not alone drifting over the dusty floors of this decrepit locale on the outskirts of town. So go ahead and scream when someone puts his hand on your shoulder, even though you are alone. There’s no one to hear. And no one to help…
So grab your credit card, point your browser over to http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/146894/Empty-Rooms-and-Vacant-Windows, cough up $.99, and get to haunting!
More next week, and until then..
Take it EZ with D3!
Rejoice, all you fans of Gamera, Rodan, and a certain 400 foot tall, fire-breathing dinosaur (you know the one…name rhymes with Odzilla)! Michael Surbrook is back with a new edition of Surbrook’s Stuff he is calling Oh, No, There Goes Tokyo!, focusing on that peculiar movie genre referred to as kaiju.
With an extensive history of the origins of rubber-monster movies from Them! to more recent outings, as well as rules for creating (and destroying!) for the Hero System, the latest Surbrook’s Stuff has everything you need to re-enact your favorite kaiju movies!
So if you’ve got a hankering for an evening of city-stomping fun, point your browser in the direction of the giant green dinosaur and get ready to cough up $1.99.. an amount that was, coincidentally, about the same as the FX budget for many of these movies!
That’s it for this week, folks! Tune in next Wednesday, when we’ll be trading in our radioactive dooms for something a bit more low-key and a lot creepier!
‘Til then, keep gaming, keep destroying those toy tanks and buildings, and most of all, take it EZ with D3!
After a few weeks where everyone seemed to be hibernating (and who can blame them?), D3 is proud to announce that the next month or more should see new releases every week, starting today!
Ian Cohen cooks up some alchemical goodness with Campaign Toybox #4: Chaotic Concoctions!
“A mixture of chemistry, magic and engineering, alchemy has provided endless possibilities for both the everyday life of the common folk and the adventurer. In this Chaotic Concoctions we explore the engineering side of Alchemy, and provide some mechanical discoveries to add more options to the Alchemist’s already bulging toolbox”
So point your browser over to DrivethruRPG, cough up a whopping $.99, and get ready to drop the bomb (a variety of them, actually) on your players!
We also have new Campaign Toyboxes, Tangents, and a new Surbrook’s Stuff article ready or almost ready to be published, with more waiting in the wings!
So keep watching, keep gaming, and until we drop next week’s release.. Take it EZ with D3!
It is a quiet week again, but a lot of stuff brewing and coming to a head soon!
First off, Michael Surbrook informs me that he has two Surbrook’s Stuff’s in layout, with a third coming soon!
Secondly, Joseph Davis is back on track with Campaign Toybox: Number three is in layout with art, and he is hard at work on #4: Nature or Nurture, featuring a Druid archetype that enhances its power of healing.
Curtis Baum is feeling better, but his recovery slowed productivity down. However, he is hoping to have his new Tangent by mid-March.
PS. the scaly fellow to the left here is a preview of the art for one of the Surbrook’s Stuff. Call it a gut instinct, but I think it involves giant monsters and some Japanese landscape about to get a lot flatter…Hope to have some definite release dates next week, but until then, keep warm, keep gaming, and take it EZ with D3!
Howdy, everyone. Not a ton of stuff to report, but we have a lot of stuff in the pipeline for upcoming releases!
Michael Surbrook has no less than three new Surbrook’s Stuff articles coming up, everything from a new alien race for sci-fi fans, to some good old horror for hanted house fans, and for you Kaiju lovers, an article on the best way to stomp all over Tokyo!
Joseph Davis has a new Campaign Toybox coming soon, real life is just interfering!
Curtis Baum also offers his apologies that his new Tangent, The Depths of Zealotry, is not ready yet, he simply caught a tummy bug that laid him flat for a couple of weeks. Just be patient.. this winter has been rough for a lot of us!
Lastly: Michael is getting ready to re-release Here There Be Dragons with a new layout and cover, the second of which was my job for this past Monday (hence the late posting this week).. but i think it was worth the delay. What do you folks think?
If you’re a writer, and you can stop shivering from the Polarpocalypse tormenting thermometers, fingers, toes and everything else in the Northern Hemisphere this week, D3 needs your help!
Paul Caughell is looking for additional freelancers to work on the Shattered Earth setting for Universal Pool. If you are interested and willing to work for royalties, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a writing sample.
More next week!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day from the mind of Campaign Toybox Guru Joseph Davis, a brand new monster for your Pathfinder fantasy campaign!
Incubus of the Matron
More next week!
It’s a new week here in the happy land of D3, and Curtis Baum coughed up this tidbit for the next Tangent, which he informs me will be dropping around the end of February.
Zach Jernigan brings us epic fantasy action with The Depths of Zealotry.
Eons ago, Maranos waged war against the people of the ancient kingdoms. The war raged for years, but Maranos was finally defeated. His immense power was locked away under the village of Farcaster.
Now, the village is under attack by an unknown group of assailants. Can the party stop the evil from reawakening?
Otherwise, it’s all quiet and snow-blown on the Western Front, so til next week:
Stay Warm, Stay Dry, Keep Gaming, and Take it EZ with D3!
