2018 Gongfarmer's Almanac

The 2018 Gongfarmer's Almanac has been released!
This is a free zine that various DCC players put together. Marc Bruner and Shyloh Wideman took the lead as organizers this year, soliciting articles, matching authors with editors and artists, and arranging to have the whole thing laid out, printed up, and given away free at Gen Con. The original print run is funded by donations, and everyone involved donates their time.
If you didn't get physical copies of the zine at Gen Con, you can get it in print or pdf on Lulu. The pdfs are completely free. The physical copy is sold at-cost, just what it costs Lulu to print it and ship it.

The pdf editions are also currently publicly available on Google Drive here.
I had several articles in this year's Gongfarmer's Almanac. Since the spirit of the entire enterprise is about publicly sharing gaming ideas, (and since I just posted the links to access the work in its entirety), I'm also going to re-post my articles from the Almanac here on my blog. You can expect to see them over the coming days. If you like what you see, consider downloading or buying the whole thing, so you can see the other contributor's ideas as well.


  1. Thank you for this great sharing! What are your articles?

  2. I have some North American wizards familiars and North American monsters in volume 3, and some alternate character creation rules and referee-advice for MCC in volume 4.
