The gang at BensRPGPile.com is working fast and furious on all aspects of its upcoming Dungeon Delve at this year's Phoenix Comicon. We're happy to say our character sheets are nearly done.
The trick here was making something that was super easy to use so that the game materials didn't negatively impact the actual gameplay and cost the players valuable minutes off the clock.
For a more detailed look, enjoy the latest Lava and a Cup of Java video on our YouTube channel.

You have to love when a plan doesn't come together. So much so that we thought this was the perfect time for another video diary entry.
Our first try on an excavation pit didn't go as planned. Rather than knocking everything down like an angry toddler, we thought it would be fun to shoot some footage of our original vision gone wrong and share how we plan on "fixing" situation.
So, enjoy our next video diary entry: P12: Terrain Can Be the Pits.

Today we kick off our weekly series of character introductions for Lava and a Cup of Java (a Phoenix Comicon Dungeon Delve).
Here's how it will work:
Each week we'll post a new character from the delve with some starting character traits and quirks. If you have a suggestion to make the NPC a little nastier, please share.
This week's character is: Sergeant Belfire, the resident jailor.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom (+4),

This week's video diary entry is a two-parter...
We got a lot of requests to put up some video with a wide shot of our terrain building operation as well as some tighter shots of the individual Hirst Art pieces. So, this week you get two fun camera perspectives.
We're still in mass assembly-line-mode but y'all want the video snippets so we're happy to accommodate.

We finally got our first official dungeon delve play test in this past Friday. It went fairly well. Personally, I was a nervous wreck (while co-writer Rob was his usual calm self).
Enjoy our latest video diary entry, P9 Post Play Test Paranoia, and hear the good news (and the bad news) from a delve writers' perspective.
We chatted about possible timesavers including single character sheets, color power cards, a romer, and pre-rolled initiatives as we try to balance a fun game and a game clock.
Thanks for all the wisdom and well wishes so far,
Ben (and the gang)...

Today is a great day as BensRPGPile.com officially releases its upcoming Phoenix Comicon flyer and delve module cover for Lava and a Cup of Java. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, we think they both turned out dandy.
The black and white flyer is for store handouts at Gamers' Inn:
The color poster is our dungeon delve module cover:

Next up for the Pile crew is monster selection, terrain building (for the large game table), and multiple rounds of play testing.
Thanks for all the positive feedback so far.

Happy Friday Y'all,

Listeners can hear how we begin to fortify the Orc stronghold...
Viewers will also catch a glimpse of our early planning struggles and our thought process behind picking some of the initial baddies.
