|DAVE BROCKIE TO WRITE RPG ADVENTURETuesday, July 17, 2012 2:50 PM|
Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus of GWAR, will be writing and illustrating (with the help of fellow Slave Pit artist Matt Maguire) the tabletop RPG adventure Towers Two as part of a Crowd Funding campaign for the "Lamentations of the Flame Princess" Weird Fantasy Role-Playing game.
Brockie continued- "Years later GWAR is going strong, and I get a call from James Raggi and a crash-course in what has been going on in the world of RPGs. I was really impressed with his LotFP game system. Just like I had done with my old campaigns, all the extraneous crap was gone from the rule system, leaving the emphasis on the juicy stuff...weird monsters and how to bash their heads in. The art was excellent as well. I dusted off the immense pile of adventures I had saved from my RPG days and began looking for an appropriate one to update. 'Towers Two', with its decaying royal line, dungeon full of hideous creatures, and town full of angry villagers had always been a favorite adventure for me to run...so I began updating in a new and completely sick manner for the LotFP game system."
"Working with the top creative talent out there is a priority for me," says LotFP publisher James Edward Raggi IV. "I knew I wanted a metal musician to write an adventure to get the right attitude, and Brockie is the guy. His work with GWAR shows he's able to come up with memorable characters and situations wrapped up in a package that gets attention, he's got the twisted imagination that fits the LotFP style, and he's got the gaming experience to turn it into something playable for the gaming crowd. It's going to kick ass and blow minds."
