To say that a lot of new work has gone into DPnP lately is a major understatement. The program has a whole new look and a whole new engine. This came about primarily because of a screw up on my part, but essentially worked out to getting things wrapped up faster, and more full featured. In this update, I talk about why, and show off some new screen shots.
The 5th episode of Dungeons and Doritos is the first episode featured using the E-RPG rules system. This episode also features the debut of Ruel Knudson, Sagas RPG creator and the developer of the E-RPG system, as the new Game Master for the show. Ruel runs the Sidetrack Adventure “The Unkindness of Ravens”. This episode was an audition of sorts that wasn’t intended for public release. Lucky for us Nerdy Show changed their minds!

Bite of the Lindworm
A Sidetrack Adventure
Diseased corpses mark the feeding grounds of a strange and terrible beast. However, while the dragon-like beast is a terror all its own, the true horror is its fatal bite. The desperate victims of the terrible beast fear a fate far worse than being eaten alive, as their own bodies waste away, delivering them into a painful and slow death.
Bite of the Lindworm is a sidetrack adventure that is designed to be played within a 2 to 4 hour game session. It includes the plot, creature and item statistics (for use with the E-RPG system) and full color scale combat maps. While the statistics are designed for the E-RPG system, the story, maps, and elements are easily incorporated into any game system set in a Fantasy of Sci-Fi world.

As I continue development I thought it would be nice to have a twitter account for quick one line updates while I work. This will give up to date info on what I am programming, how it is going, and other tidbits about my work with Ironwood. In general, it will only be about Ironwood development stuff, with maybe an occasional note on things going on arround me that may affect this, including inspirational influences as well as things going on with my family at the time that tend to get in the way.

The long awaited DPnP gaming utility has had a difficult development cycle. After many years of trial and tribulation the revolutionary gaming utility is back at the forefront of Ironwood development!
The Digital Pen n Paper utility is under full production and has become the primary focus of Ironwood development. The first stage of development includes the creation of a demo Fantasy Sagas Player Character Generator. The development of the demo project includes other components of the DPnP programming package as well. Furthermore, a full character management package will be developed and released with the full retail version of the Modern Sagas Player’s Guidebook as an added free bonus to the PDF book.
When completed, the DPnP program will take gaming into a completely new realm. It will bridge gaps and explore completely new possibilities with RPGs both at the table, and online. It will showcase the full potential of the E-RPG system, from its user customization, to the creative freedom that E-RPG players have come to know and love.
E-RPG has shown the possibilities that a role-playing experience can have when you put the creative talents of the Game Masters and Players behind a system that supports that creativity and gives them strong and stable rules to build upon. DPnP will not only expand these into the virtual world, but also give players and Game Masters the tools to explore their characters and their worlds even further. You will be able to take your game to an entirely new level. With new technology that will make your creative efforts realised more easily, you will find that you can explore so much more!

Ironwood is proud to announce the newset line of products for the E-RPG Fantasy Sagas Role-Playing Game: Sidetracks.
Sidetracks are short miniature adventures design to be a complete story that can be played in a single game session. Each adventure focuses on unique and interesting applications for the E-RPG rules systems, or new types of story focuses. These adventures usually include new content such as new creatures, archetypes, magical items, and many other possibilities. Many of these will also include full color battelmaps scaled for play with 1 inch miniatures created with the award winning Dundjinni software.
The first adventure, The Unkindness of Ravens, is available now, with more to come. The series has the potential to run indefinately, with new sidetracks for each of the Sagas generes. Each story will initially be released as full color E-books, which will retail for about $3. As these products are released, a hardcopy collection of up to ten stories will be released in softcover and hardcover print editions.
The concept for these stories is simple. Not only would we provide the small diversions that occur randomly along adventures that give worlds that extra level of realism born in seemingly random developments, but we can explore greater diversity in experimenting with the rules system in ways that can’t be done reasonably through full length adventures and campaigns. Each adventure will offer something new to the game experience, allowing players and Game Masters alike to enjoy not only a storyline diversion, but also explore new paths in gameplay as well.
For more information on Sidetracks visit our website at www.sagasrpg.com. Furthermore you can keep up to date on future products in this series through the Sidetracks RSS Feed and our Sagas RPG News feed.
Ironwood Nexus is going through some changes. Among these changes is a complete site overhaul. All E-RPG and Sagas related content will move to its new site over the course of several weeks to www.sagasrpg.com . During this time, some features may experience some downtime. As components are moved from the current site to the new one they will be closed and redirects.
It is still too soon to predict an exact date for the final turn around. However, we expect within the course of May. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Well, as the title suggest, it has been a busy weekend. It started through the week, as things were developing towards the weekend itself. An Ironwood Nexus Community Member, Ralph, posted some suggestions for a game aid that I developed. I took on the roll of both Project Developer and Executive Officer this week, and I prepared for the first play test for a Fantasy Sagas Game in almost a year. It all led up to yesterday, when it all came together.
