GenCon fans we have something cool that you can pick up for yourselves this weekend in Indy. Stop by the Games Plus booth, 2137, and buy a copy of our collaborative D&D module with our friends from Sybris.
Voyage of the Stag Party
“Limited edition vinyl 7″ ep with adventure module, 1 of 300Sybris’ new EP, “Voyage of the Stag Party”–released with assistance of Floyd Global Industries–is also a classic era D&D-style adventure module. For the past 6 years, members of Sybris and brewers from Three Floyds Brewing have gotten together almost every Friday night (barring touring or work duties) to gather in a smoky garage or around a customized game table to play the classic role-playing game, Dungeons and Dragons. When Sybris started writing a D&D inspired song, “Critically in Love,” the idea to release the song as part of an adventure was born.
To commemorate this hobby-turned-lifestyle, the adventuring party–known as The Endless Wastes–are releasing a special edition limitedEP. The seven inch vinyl record contains three Sybris songs: “Stag Party” and “Boots of Gold” recorded by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Yakuza), and “Critically in Love” recorded by Mike Lust (Bible of the Devil, Urge Overkill, Tight Phantomz) at one of the last sessions at the now defunct Phantom Manor. The third song, “Critically in Love” is a love song told entirely in D&D jargon. Download codes for digital masters of all three songs are also included.
The EP jacket is actually a “retro-clone” adventure module: “The Voyage of The Stag Party”, complete with maps and pre-rolled characters. The adventure, written by Chad Troutman with members Phil Naumann and Shawn Podgurski of Sybris, contains several tongue-in-cheek references to both Sybris and Three Floyds and is based on the songs “Stag Party” and “Boots of Gold.” The adventure features cover art by fantasy artist Stephen Poag, back cover art by Kill Hatsumomo’s Erin Page, and interior cover art by Jason Naumann with interior art by Ben Naumann and Zachary Baker.
Includes immediate download of 3-track album in your choice of high-quality MP3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.”
Now that we’ve had a chance to tidy the brewery back up, catch our breath, and our heads have stopped spinning from Saturday, we want to thank everyone for coming to this year’s Dark Lord Day. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and it looks like all of you had as much fun as we did. There are still some small tweaks to be made but we think that you’ll agree that things worked out pretty well overall this year. Thank yous go out to all of the attendees who kept it a safe and positive beer experience, all the breweries who sent guest beers, Bloodiest, Lair of the Minotaur, Sweet Cobra, Pig Destroyer, Municipal Waste, High on Fire, the Town of Munster, our organizational partners, and the tireless efforts and countless hours that our employees put into organizing such an overwhelming endeavor. We look forward to next year and we hope you do too!
