A downloadable pack

Buy Now$40.00 USD or more

This is a special, limited time bundles of old, weird, rare, or outdated games, concepts, and skeletons from Whimsy Machine and my previous life as a doomed board game designer.

This unorthodox, largely unplayable, and frankly embarrassing collection is a key incentive for my Dirty Laundry Sale, which is helping me afford a new washer/dryer after mine broke.

For every $100 raised on the sale, I'll add another thing to this collection—and they'll only get weirder from here. I'm talking board game prototypes previously under NDAs, campaign notes from games never run, essays I thought it'd be a good idea to write, experimental audio projects. And even more!

Contents currently include:

  • What See You Off Yonder: a weird little board game from a 2017 game jam
  • Stories from Stichomancy: an essay type thing on writing campaigns
  • The Grand Adventures of Tiny Ethan: a 200 word RPG
  • Something Like Bucko: another 200 word RPG
  • Deep Dark Deathlike: a horror ttrpg I'm actually really proud of but has been mostly unpublished until I can revise it, specifically to include safety tools.
  • Avatar, Baby!: a little ttrpg I made at the same time as Substratum, Laser Beams Like So Many Stars, and Phantasticine. I don't really know why I never published it.
  • A Bouquet of Swords: a concept for a ttrpg based on the art of Emily Cheeseman and Kate Sheridan. This would later inspire Heartbearers.
  • Mage Tower: a (very rough) pitch I made in my board-game-maker-for-a-company days.
  • Inktober RPG: For legal reasons, this game is not called "Inktober." It's called something else. A lot of cool concepts in a very unfinished game.
  • Metal RPG: a concept for a ttrpg inspired by metal music, originally intended to be a licensed game back when I worked on licensed products.
  • Color & Light: a ttrpg I made as a commission before I realized how important contracts are for stuff like this.
