Thundarr lookalike mini giveaway courtesy of interloperminiatures.com!

Thanks to Interloperminiatures.com I will be giving away three Wasteland Warrior minis which look remarkably like Thundarr the Barbarian! The mini will come unpainted, shipped direct from Interloper.

Here is how the giveaway will work: On Dec 12th I will roll randomly three times on the list of current Crawling Under a Broken Moon six issue subscribers to determine the winners. If you are already a CUaBM subscriber, you are already entered in the giveaway! If not, to enter you just need to purchase a six issue subscription by Dec 11th!

I will pass the winner's shipping info to Interloper and they should have the minis shipped well in time for Christmas.



As competent as the Wasteland Warrior appears, he never goes into danger without his faithful companions. All three minis should be available for purchase by Halloween, directly from interloperminiatures.com!

Issue #3 is on track!

Issue #3 is written and edited. Just waiting on a bit of art and then it is off for official approval. Everything is on track for a Sept/Oct release.


Here is the table of contents:

Radioactive Wasters
Making 0 Level characters for a post apocalyptic world

Mall Maul
A funnel adventure set in the ruins of a shopping mall

The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence: A Review

Full disclosure time: Venger Satanis asked me to review The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence and gave me a complimentary copy to do so.

So, what did I think? Short answer: WOW! Long answer:  There is a LOT of gonzo Old School goodness in these 110 pages.

I do feel that it should be mentioned right away that the "Caution: Mature Content" warning on the cover is justified. There is a fair amount of sexual content, female slaves as a type of currency, dark twisted concepts, and possibly disturbing art. I mention this not to dissuade anyone but to alert possible purchasers that it might not be acceptable for children or the easily offended.
The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence begins with 40+ pages of optional house rules compatible with most OSR games, a new monk class, setting specific rules, tons of useful random tables, and a boatload of background for the islands interspersed amongst all of the above. I would say this part of the book is pleasantly unorganized and very much reminiscent of RPG supplements written in the 70’s and 80’s. You may need to flip around a bit to find the table or section you are looking for but it is not too difficult. I really enjoyed traversing through this section as it felt like you never knew what the next pages would hold. 

Starting on Page 44 is the individual hex content listings.  These continue until page 95. The best way I can describe this section is that the previous 40 pages were Alice chasing after the Rabbit and now she has jumped down the hole into Wonderland, as written by Robert E. Howard on month long acid trip. It is a random assortment of SciFi and fantasy, depraved cult activity, the familiar and the strange. Then it just gets WEIRD. 

The last pages are dedicated to new setting specific spells and magic items befitting the insanity already displayed in the setting.
Honestly I am not sure a grouping of paragraphs containing words can describe what takes place on this Island. If the byline “An old school weird science-fantasy campaign setting and wilderness hex-crawl” written on the cover caught your interest at all, do yourself a favor and pick this up.

Artists Wanted

I am looking for art for upcoming issues of Crawling Under a Broken Moon. I prefer old school looking black and white art that matches up with the styling of the other DCC products out there. Anything that would fit the concept of gonzo post apocalyptic fantasy is fair game.

Artists will retain all rights to any art submitted and only agree to letting me use it in the Crawling Under a Broken Moon fanzine. At this time, that best compensation I can offer is the same as the other fanzines, a free print copy of any issue that features your work.

If you are interested, please contact me at crawlingunderabrokenmoon@gmail.com or on Google+. I'll be happy to provide ideas for what kind of art I need.

Twisted Menagerie Teaser #2


Let me introduce the Lobstrosity! An alien species of giant flying crustaceans that are just as tasty as they are deadly.

Coming soon to a Fanzine near you!  

 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Issue #1 update, It should be available in early May! I had to make a very minor change and resubmit it for approval but otherwise it was good to go.

Friday, April 18, 2014

I've got a poll and I'm not afraid to use it!

...although I probably should be.

Anyways, I'm working away on the content for issue #2 while issue #1 is waiting for approval. As I think about future issues, I'd like to get some input from the fanzine fans out there eagerly awaiting some post apocalyptic DCC content. As such, I've posted a poll here on my blog and I would love for everyone check it out.

Also, I've added a submissions page for those who might be interested in writing or drawing something for Crawling Under A Broken Moon. Feel free to contact me for more info at crawlingunderabrokenmoon@gmail.com

Hello World!

My intent with this blog is to promote my fanzine dedicated to bringing gonzo post apocalyptic content for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG from Goodman Games. I am hoping to release the first issue in late May or early June. Until then I will try and post teasers while I work on it.

Please excuse the under construction state of this blog as I attempt to figure out how to set it up. :)
