New blog site!

Hey, everyone!

We've been busy setting up some new infrastructure and typesetting material for release on

As today is Memorial Day in the U.S., we'd like to further celebrate by laying to rest our old site. Be advised that the URL you should be using to access this blog is

We've moved to our own self-hosted Wordpress installation, leaving the Google-hosted Blogger home we've been using for the last 4 years. This will give us more flexibility and control over our IP as we move forward as a collaboration between Unicorn Rampant Publishing and Inverspace Press.

Thanks, Blogger, for helping to get us off the ground. And thanks, dear readers, for your support these past four years.

Onward and upward!

Cloak of Humility

This plain, slightly tattered clock projects the wearer's more humble virtues. As a result, against onlookers with any sense of humility, the wearer receives a +5 on all diplomacy and bluff checks.

Wearing the cloak in scenarios that call for more formal attire will penalize these skill checks.

The minor version provides a +2 bonus, and the greater version provides a +10 bonus on the associated skill checks.

Price: 1,000gp, Craft Wondrous Item. Owners of the cloak will often require a humble deed be done before they part with the cloak as the result of a transaction.

Return from hiatus with claws and bite

Thanks everyone who sent in an entry to our April contest. We'll post the results, including the top 3 entries soon. And, send in an entry for May's contest, eh?

Thanks also for bearing with us as we finalize plans to migrate our site to a Wordpress installation on our own servers. There's something downright satisfying about that.

We are also about to embark on an 8-post journey of virtuous items for any adventuring avatar. They should be fun additions to your role playing games, and bring back shades of your gaming past.

Stay tuned.
