About Deeply Dapper

Greetings, fiends! 
My name is Kristopher McClanahan and I am an artist, author, podcaster, game designer, soapboiler and con man living in the Northwest. With my wife and friends, we have spent the last decade as DEEPLY DAPPER - bringing you the best art, stories, games, alchemy and experiences we can.

After a long search about the best way to use Patreon, we decided to combine everything we do into one epic experience - a super geeky, lovingly created magazine! 

TABLETOPS AND TENTACLES will be a monthly magazine that is designed to harken back to the classic magazines I loved growing up - Dragon, Dungeon, Wizard, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction with a modern twist. Each issue will be packed with content including a mix of the following: 
  • Roleplaying Game Adventure hooks, prompts and outlines
  • Full serialized adventures for RPGs
  • Custom NPCs, treasure, magic items and monsters
  • Short fiction and book excerpts
  • Interviews with Tabletop and RPG game designers
  • Artist profiles
  • Fun and helpful dice tables
  • Custom maps and locations
  • Bad jokes
  • Comics!
  • Convention Reports
  • Reviews of games, systems, movies, and weird food
  • Exclusive artwork
  • Tales from the Cthulhu-Haul
  • Articles, hints and tips for RPGs and Tabletop Games
  • Sneak peeks at upcoming projects
  • The Scent-Of-The-Month!
  • Probably more bad jokes!
In addition to getting the magazine cheaper on Patreon than it will be available at our table at shows or online, Patrons will also get exclusive digital content, including printable maps, character and item cards and behind the scenes content.

What kinds of adventures can we expect from TABLETOPS AND TENTACLES?
Excellent question, Patreon About Page! My wife and I have been creating worlds, adventures and stories together for over a decade, in games, novels, short stories, RPGs and just as ways to entertain ourselves on long car rides. In the process we've assembled a huge collection of notes, tales, myths and plots to pull from for the magazine. In each issue we plan to include a mix of genres, adventure types and lengths as well as a blend of complexity. 
  • Most fantasy adventures will be primarily system agnostic, but whenever possible we will include tables for adjusting to 5E/pathfinder/etc, depending on the adventure. (Or include them as Patreon exclusives) 
  • A blend of fantasy, sci-fi, horror and modern, with some twists thrown in. 
  • We have established worlds in a wide range of genres and when we write adventures in them, we will also include primers about the genre and world for extra texture. 
  • Some of our current worlds/genres:
    • Somnerra - a high fantasy, seafaring world with magic, dragons, blunderbuss pistols, pirates, jungle temples and sea serpents.
    • Aeternor - A fantasy world where magic is outlawed in regions and mythology blends with historical battles, a renowned magical school and fantastic tales.
    • Streetlights and Shadows - Orpheus - a 1940's noir town of detectives, death and neon.
    • Crossworlds - A city full of superheroes and mysterious dimensional rifts.
    • Moonstone Bay - A mist-wrapped retro-modern gothic mystery set on the coast of Washington state.
    • Dapper Hollows - Bat Boy and his buddy 'Thulie in a world of monsters, weird vegetables and horror where it's always Halloween.
    • The Westlands - A post-apocalyptic 1960's western United States.
    • And more, including plenty of simplified fantasy and horror settings, lovecraftian terrors and Faerie folk!
  • Themed issues! A few times a year, we will release issues that are created around a central theme - Horror, aliens, holidays, maybe a fruit? Who knows!?! 
  • Guest Editors! In addition to reaching out to comic book creators we've met in our years of doing conventions, interviewing game creators and artists, we will also be doing guest editor issues where a special guest editor shapes the magazine that month.
How does it work? 
All you have to do is pledge at your minimum desired level to start getting the magazine once it's released! (Of course, you are always welcome to pledge for more to help support our endeavors) We are releasing the first issue in January and backers at the digital or above levels will always have access to the digital back issues through updates! Backers at the Physical level will get a code to print a copy at cost from DriveThru RPG each month. (Physical and digital copies will also be available on DriveThru RPG after they are available here, but at a higher retail.) We will be releasing a FREE "Zero" issue in a month for prospective patrons to read and get an idea of what we are going to be doing.
