I’ve taken an extremely long hiatus from writing and publishing, but not to worry! I’ve returned. I’ve been busy with other projects and learning new skills in the material world, and, largely, have moved toward living in/on/with wilder landbases, and thus, haven’t been writing and publishing a lot. That said, I do intend to continue producing SAGA materials. I don’t really care about continuing to slog out political writings, as there’s already an ample body of work regarding anarchism, primitivism, etc., so I don’t feel it’s necessary for me to contribute to that realm anymore.

However, I’m still passionate about my roleplaying system, SAGA, and I have every intention of continuing to put out new material periodically. Along those lines, I’d like to announce the 6th Edition of the SAGA Core Rulebook and a newer, more polished default character sheet. Both can be found on the Roleplaying & Gaming Page, or by clicking the links below:

Saga, Core Rulebook 6th Edition

Saga Character Sheet


Due to an ongoing in person Shadowrun campaign that we’ve been running with the SAGA system recently, I’ve been hard at work the last few days to bust out an official conversion supplement to bring Shadowrun in line with the SAGA ruleset. After two days of constant work, I present you with said supplement! It contains rules regarding the Matrix and decking, rigging, shamanic totems and magic, a metric asston of Shadowrun weaponry, and mechanics for Essence and cyberware/bioware. Note: this is not a campaign setting, as it does not contain detailed world information. There’s millions of lore building, canonical Shadowrun products for that purpose; this is just a wee 70 page rules supplement. May do a full campaign setting in the future if time and interest permit.

In preparation for an upcoming SAGA Shadowrun campaign, I’ve thrown together a little SAGA character sheet that’s thematically appropriate. Mostly just an aesthetic change, but also includes an entry for Meta Race on the race line and an entry for Totems/Spirit Guides.

This newest campaign setting is an adaptation of White Wolf’s legendary Vampire: the Masqueradei.  While faithful to the original in many ways, this supplement not only adapts the original source material into the SAGA ruleset, but also, hopefully, makes a few improvements. Contained within is detailed information on fourteen clans (including the insular Salubri and the clanless Caitiff), the Camarilla, Sabbat, and Anarch Movement, and a variety of vampiric Disciplines and powers. This supplement can be used to incorporate a comprehensive vampire mythos into any campaign setting or genre, including fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, comtemporary, or any real-world setting.

NEW ZINE: Paleo-pocalypse!

December 28, 2015

My newest brainchild is a in-depth exploration of “scavenger-tech”, the methodology of scrounging the rubbish and detritus of civilization and repurposing it in primitive skill and survival applications. Among a whirlwind of other topics, this zine covers knapping broken glass bottles and toilet ceramics, friction fire made using exclusively Ikea products, tire tread sandals, candles made from crayons or oranges, fish hooks from soda can tabs, and much more.

Hot off the press (of my brain), this new pseudo-zine is exactly what it promises: a lengthy and hopefully comprehensive codex of everything bamboo. In regards to primitive living and skills, bamboo is arguably the most versatile and useful plant in the world, and this zine hopes to illuminate that fact.

In attempting to keep my Magic: the Gathering Campaign Setting up to date in the Magic canon, I’ve just finished a Tarkir supplement detailing every aspect of that bellicose plane. Visit the Roleplaying Page for free downloads.

Or, click Tarkir.

After rekindling my lifelong passion for plant medicine and nerdly gaming, I’m proud to present the second edition of my plant medicine card game, Apothecary. This edition is a labor of love, fully redoing the visual aspects of the game into high definition, full color cards. Please visit the Collectible Card Games page for free downloads. Enjoy!

I got oddly motivated yesterday and devoted the whole afternoon to updating the visuals and rules of the Saga core rulebook. I’m excited to present Saga, 5th Edition!

This edition returns the dice rolling mechanics to those of version 3.5, as a number of friends and players gave their input in support of the old system. I’ve also given some tender attention to the outdated, frankly hideous visual content in the 4th edition rulebook. The new 5th edition manual is, IMHO, gorgeous and professionally laid out. I think y’all will agree. Enjoy!

Just wanted to post a quick shout out to my other blog, Coyote and Wolf, whereupon I blog various essays and diatribes about politics and ethics.Check it out, y’all!

Also, since Yggdrasil has been relatively inactive and infrequently updated of late, here’s a short list of projects I’m working on and will likely finish in the coming months:

Apothecary, my herbal medicine card game, redone in higher resolution and color

Bas-Lag: The Campaign Setting, based on the works of China Mieville

Bamboo!, a zine concerning all the thousands of utilitarian uses of bamboo in relation to bushcraft

Vampire – Danse Macabre, a faithful adaptation and shameless ripoff of Vampire: the Masquerade, for Saga

– My own adaptation of cyvasse, the chess-like game from the Song of Ice and Fire books

– My very first gamebook, Moonshadow and the Quest for the Yellow Lotus, an adventure in the Hyborian Age concerning indigeneity, de-colonization, and feminist themes

– an updated 5th edition of the Saga core rulebook

– maaaaaaaaybe, just maybe, I’m going to start work on a post-apocalyptic M:tG clone, if there’s enough interest and I have enough time

Stay tuned, friends! There’s a lot of good things coming in 2015.
