Check This Artifact Kickstarter is Live!
The Check This Artifact: More Deadly Artifacts For Your Mutant Crawling Game kickstarter is now live! Check This Artifact is a system neutral supplement ideal for use in any post-apocalyptic roleplaying game (and even fantasy games, if you really want to stir things up).
Written by the author of Mutant Crawl Classics RPG, this meaty 52-page supplement presents 30 brand new artifacts for your players to attempt to track down, tame, and temper — including weapons, armor, robots, AIs, and those extra-special items that are the sole purview of far-future fiction and implacable GMs. As an added bonus, Check This Artifact also includes The OVERLORD — a new AI Deity and all the programmatic spells and rules for rover-priests of any genotype.
UPDATE: The project funded in its first 9 hours, so on to the Stretch Goals!

This 2-issue treasury series collects all of the misanthropic magic-user’s earliest misadventures. Both issues features complete stories from the webcomic, tales that originally appeared only in the Gary Con Events Guide, plus behind-the-scenes articles and bonus material.
Each issue also includes rare, never reprinted Marvin the Mage stories and pages — including Marvin’s very first appearance in Tim Kask’s Adventure Gaming magazine, a page from an early (and rejected) Dragon magazine submission, and a Marvin comic from Gygax Magazine No.1.

Marvin the Mage
A misanthropic mage and medieval grifter, Marvin loathes actual adventuring. With a spell book optimized for cheating at card games and mixing adult beverages, Marvin has one ironclad rule that has always served him well: NO dungeons and NO dragons. Surly, selfish, and sarcastic by nature, Marvin is best described as just a pixie’s wing this side of chaotic-neutral.

More Deadly Artifacts for Your Mutant Crawling Game
You caught the glint of metal underneath the dirt and the damp, so you started digging. With a little effort, and one eye on any challengers to your claim, you held your prize.
An artifact of the Ancient Makers!
But now your wariness increases to an almost audible pitch, as you begin the most dangerous of all tasks — you examine its mysterious surfaces, studs, and touchplates. Your fellow rovers, wise to the ways of The Before Time, all begin to back up to a respectable distance, lest they be caught in any mishaps at your hands and their sweating fingertips. Now comes the time for both luck and determination. Can you unlock and master the secrets of this device of ancient imperishable power?
Clocking in at 48 pages and crammed with content, Check This Artifact contains 30 brand-new artifacts of the Ancient Makers, plus a brand-new godlike AI, all for use in your mutant crawling or other post-apocalyptic role playing game. Penned by the creator of Mutant Crawl Classics RPG, these powerful technological treasures are more than mere artifacts, because each item in this book is a plot hook and a potential mini-adventure in the making.
Coming in Winter 2019!
