Hi all, it’s Jonny. You remember, from The Magnus Archives? So, we’re in the last three days of the crowdfunder for my latest project, PITCRAWLER, and I really, really want it to do well, so I thought I’d do another plug post to try and nudge anyone on the fence about it to back (or to remind folks who were like “oh yeah, maybe I’ll back that later” - now’s the time!).
I’m not going to post a link ‘cause I know that means Tumblr hides posts, but if you google “pitcrawler” then the IndieGoGo campaign should be the first result.

So what is PITCRAWLER?
It’s a tabletop roleplaying game that I’ve been designing with my partner Sasha Sienna (Georgie from Magnus). It’s an over-the-top fantasy game inspired by old adventure gamebooks like Fighting Fantasy or Lone Wolf, with “wizard airbrushed onto the side of a van” vibes (though much less racist/misogynist/colonialist than a lot of the fantasy of that era, and much more queer-friendly).
It’s designed to be played with two players, one adventurer and one gamesmaster, and has a simple system intended to be accessible to new players who might be curious about roleplaying but find the prospect of big games like Dungeons & Dragons a bit intimidating, or who might not be able to get a half dozen friends together, but can probably convince one other person to play.
In it, you play an adventurer trying to make their way in a world ruled by hyper-powerful wizards who have carved reality up into their own weird domain. Thematically, it’s unsurprisingly anti-capitalist, with the wizards very much standing in for weird, out-of-touch billionaires and oligarchs.
Will I like it?
I think so! It’s a fun, light-hearted adventure romp that requires no preparation or experience to play, with loads of random tables and guidance to help new players find their feet. Plus, it’s got fantastically cool old-gamebook art like this!

Look at that boney fellow! He’s having a great time!
How much is it?
The basic PDF version is only £13, with physical copies starting from £26, though there are obviously higher tiers that get you cooler stuff, like journals to record your adventures and tear-off character sheet notebooks!
Can I try it out first?
Yes! There’s a Quickstart Guide available for download on the IndieGoGo page, which gives you the full basic rules and a small selection of backgrounds, expertises, companions etc, as well as four sample adventures!
How long do I have to think about it?
The IndieGoGo campaign finished on Wednesday 25th May, and while there will be opportunities to pre-order it afterwards, backing it now will mean there’ll be more good stuff in the book itself. Our next stretch goal (which we are tantalisingly close to) will add a whole bunch of extra random tables to the book! So if you’re curious or interested, please consider backing it now!
Can I play an adventurer who used to be a Mayor?
Weird question, but yes! You even get a special mayor’s hat as a starting item!
Tumblr media
Can my best friend be a goblin who plays the bagpipes?
Uh, again, yes. That would probably be the Musician companion in the full game, and absolutely they can be a goblin if you’d like.
Can-
Look, I’m going to stop you there, if these are the sort of questions that amuse or excite you, I really think you’re going to love PITCRAWLER, so check out the campaign and back it if you can.
Where did you say I could find it?
Just google “pitcrawler” and it should be the first result.
Right. Cool. Wait, why did you post this in “The Magnus Archives” tag?
Well, uh... You see... Um... Look out! Behind you! A wizard!

Features Jonathan Sims, a thin dark-skinned man with short choppy grey hair and various scars in a red shirt over a white button-up, grey slacks and brown shoes, and Martin Blackwood, a fat light-skinned man with long blonde hair in a ponytail and glasses in a white button-up, a black t-shirt and jeans. The two are kissing, with Martin holding Jon around the waist and Jon’s arms and legs wrapped around Martin. End ID]

About to head off to work. So have this collection of Peter Lukas doodles.  There was something I deeply enjoyed about the way he portrayed loneliness. His character just hit so delightfully deep with The Lonely definitely being my own personal domain of fear

And there was Frodo, pale and worn, and yet himself again; and in his eyes there was peace now, neither strain of will, nor madness, nor any fear. His burden was taken away.
this was massively inspired by one of my absolute favorite scenes in lord of the rings. a softer take on their journey Somewhere Else.

my newest fanbinding project - Like A Fly by @primtheamazing! this is the longest fic i've bound so far, and it was also the first i tried both a cover design and stitched-on headbands for. i used a paint pen for the cover (which is bound in black cardstock and black-and-white bookcloth) and i'm happy with how it turned out! i like having the name of the fic on the outside so i'm definitely going to do more in the future 💕✨
hand-stitched headbands are something i'm still getting the hang of, but i like the look and flexibility of them. they're quite fiddly and definitely something i'll need to practice more 😅 i used this tutorial for them but there are a lot of other tutorials out there as well!

What would happen if you made yarn from the fluff of entity buns? Some lightweight Vast fluff? Twisting Spiral fluff? Unsanitary Corruption fluff? So many possibilities.
