Meet the Twisted Tree


From the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:

Last week we introduced you to the Walking Tree from the Rocks on the Other Side RPG. This week, we introduce you to its evil cousin, a tree that will do everything it can to kill everyone...


INT: 20

CS: 16

CHA: 10

STR: 28

AGIL: 12

END: 26

AB: +37 (+26 hand to hand combat skill, +6 Str, +1 mutation, +4 bark)

DB: +34 (-1 Agil, +1 mutation, +10 bark, +24 level

Health: 10d8+50

Type of Att: Limbs X2, Hurled fruit X2

Damage: 3d10+6/1d6 + contamination

Skills: Animal Handling 10, Appraise 5, Bluff 9, Concentration 18, Direction Sense 16, Etiquette 4, Gather Information 12, Herbalism 10, Hide 8, Interrogation 6, Intimidate 12, Listen 14, Negotiation 8, Search 3, Sense Motive 10, Spot 5, Tracking 11

Special Abilities: Hold, stun

Experience: 1750

Description: The twisted tree is a horrible mutation of a normal tree. Unlike the walking tree, the twisted tree is angry about its mutation, and they want to mutate the rest of the world. A twisted tree is normally about the size of a fruit tree, but its trunk and branches are twisted and full of knots and are often oozing sap. Twisted trees love to fight, and they will look to attack anything that they think they can destroy or mutate. In combat, the twisted tree attacks with two limbs trying to strike opponents. At the same time, it hurls radioactive fruit at other opponents. Although the fruit doesn’t do much damage, getting hit by it or by the branches will require a character to make a check against a severe radiation exposure.

Twisted trees are often not encountered alone. They don’t associate with other trees, but they are able to exert a mild mind control over other contaminated creatures. When encountered, there is a 50% chance that they will be encountered with other contaminated creatures. These creatures could be mutated animals, mutated ants, giant centipedes, giant spiders, giant flying spiders, strangle vines, mutated wasps, or even skeletons or zombies. These creatures will fight to the death to protect the twisted tree.

Twisted trees are highly susceptible to fire based attacks, and suffer triple damage from any attacks using fire.

Meet the Walking Tree


From the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:

It’s time to meet another creature you might meet in the Rocks on the Other Side game, the Walking Tree


INT: 22

CS: 20

CHA: 20

STR: 28

AGIL: 10

END: 28

AB: +41 (+30 hand to hand combat skill, +6 Str, +1 mutation, +4 bark)

DB: +34 (-1 Agil, +1 mutation, +10 bark, +24 level

Health: 12d8+72

Type of Att: Limbs X2

Damage: 4d10+6

Skills: Animal Handling 10, Appraise 5, Bluff 9, Concentration 18, Diplomacy 8, Direction Sense 16, Etiquette 4, Gather Information 12, Herbalism 20, Hide 8, Interrogation 6, Intimidate 12, Listen 14, Negotiation 8, Search 3, Sense Motive 10, Spot 5, Tracking 11

Special Abilities: Hold, stun

Experience: 2200

Description: The nuclear mutations caused some trees to gain sentience and the ability to move. These trees normally won’t be aggressive, preferring to tend to other plants and animals in an effort to restore the Earth to what it used to be. However, if attacked, or if they see someone damaging the planet, they will fight. It is important to note, however, that they will not attack characters that they see attacking mutated plants or animals, because they see these as an abomination, and they want to rid the world of them.

If forced into combat, the walking tree will try to attack with two of its limbs. If their attack roll beats the character’s defense roll by 10, the tree has stunned the character for a number of rounds equal to the difference between the attack and defense rolls. If the tree’s attack roll exceeds a character’s defense roll by 15, the tree has grabbed the character and immobilized them. If this stops the attacks, the tree will then lecture the character on its mistakes and then set it free. If combat continues, then on the next round the tree will raise the character high into the air and drop it, causing 4d10 damage. There is no risk of contamination from an attack by a walking tree.

Walking trees are highly susceptible to fire based attacks, and suffer triple damage from any attacks using fire. However, if the walking tree survives the attack, the characters have made a lifetime enemy, and the tree will plot their downfall until they or it die.

Meet the Intellifungus


From the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:

It's time to learn about a new creature that you might encounter in the Rocks on the Other Side game...the Intellifungus. They can be dangerous, they can be can never be quite sure...


INT: 14

CS: 11

CHA: 9

STR: 17

AGIL: 12

END: 24

AB: +9 (+7 hand to hand combat skill,+1 Str, +1 mutation)

DB: +11 (+1 mutation, +2 fungal quality, +8 level bonus)

Health: 4d8+16

Type of Att: 2 spore punches

Damage: 1d6+1 and spores

Skills: Appraise 3, Balance 2, Bluff 4, Climb 5, Concentration 2, Diplomacy 3, Direction Sense 9, Gather Information 2, Herbalism 5, Hide 10, Interrogation 2, Intimidate 8, Jump 2, Listen 4, Move Silently 11, Negotiation 2, Search 6, Sense Motive 3, Spot 4, Stealth 9, Tracking 7

Special Abilities: Spores

Experience: 700

Description: Some fungal colonies gained sentience from their exposure to the radiations of the war. Each individual colony that gained sentience now forms one creature, and these creatures can differ greatly in size and shape just as normal colonies of fungus can. The biggest difference is that these colonies will generally try to imitate the bipedal mannerisms of humans or the quadrupedal mannerisms of animals. Intellifungus are very smart and can even rival many humans on intelligence, and just like humans, intellifungus can differ greatly in the way they lead their lives. Some can be openly hostile to humans, while others can be friendly with humans, and still others might just want to be left alone. Intellifungus can be found living alone, or like-minded fungi might choose to live together.

If an intellifungus engages in combat, they will strike with two pods that resemble arms. Each hit will do 2-7 points of damage, but there is also a chance that they can infect the victim with spores. Each time a character is hit, they must make an endurance check against a score of 14. If they fail the roll, they have become infected. One week after the infection, they must make another endurance check against a score of 16. If this roll is failed, the character permanently loses two points of endurance. After two weeks, the character must make another endurance check (with their new endurance score) against a score of 18. If they fail this check, they devolve into a fungus, with a 1in 6 chance of becoming an intellifungus. If the character succeeds on the second or third roll, their immune system has beaten back the fungus and they are normal again, although if they failed the second roll, they have still lost their endurance points. Anyone with 20 points in medicine can treat and heal a character infected with spores but this treatment must happen before the two weeks are up.

Although an intellifungus can engage in hand to hand combat, their preferred method of fighting is to release a 20’ sphere of spores. Anyone within this sphere must make an endurance check against a score of 12 or they become infected with spores. As with the physical attacks, infected characters must make a second check after one week against a score of 14, and a third check after two weeks against a score of 16. Failing the second check will cause a loss of two endurance points, and failing the third check will cause the character to devolve just as the physical attacks will.

As intellifungus are evolved from regular fungus, they seem to have adapted to the radiation that caused their mutation, and as a result, there is no danger of contamination from coming in contact with an intellifungus.

At this time, intellifungus do not form civilizations, nor do they use tools, but evolution can always change that.

Meet the Jabbering Mutant


From the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:

One of the worst fates that can befall any creature in the Rocks on the Other Side universe is to mutate into a Jabbering Mutant. Let us introduce you to this creature...


INT: 4

CS: 12

CHA: 2

STR: 20

AGIL: 18

END: 28

AB: +3 (+2 str, +1 mutation)

DB: +18 (+1 Agil, +2 mutation, +10 level, +5 amorphous)

Health: 5d8+30

Type of Att: mutant strike

Damage: 3d10+6

Skills: varies

Special Abilities: amorphous, contamination, confusion

Experience: 900

Description: When a person, animal, or plant suffers the most severe mutation that doesn’t actually kill them, they become a Jabbering mutant. These creatures don’t actually have a shape, because their shape constantly changes as the poor creatures continually mutate, thus they can have multiple limbs at one time, multiple faces, multiple of anything that the creature originally had.

When a Jabbering mutant attacks, and they always will because they are not very smart and very angry at the form they now take, they will strike with whatever limbs they currently have. At the start of the encounter the game master rolls 1d6 and this determines how many attacks the creature gets each round. Every fifth round of combat, a 1d6 is rolled again, as the creature will have mutated.

The Jabbering mutant is constantly making annoying noises that can cause confusion. Every round, each character must make a common sense check against a score of 12. They roll 1d20 and modify this with their common sense modifier. If the roll is not 12 or higher, they are confused and cannot take any action for 1d6 rounds.

Finally, every hit from a Jabbering mutant runs the risk of a severe radiation exposure and characters must roll on the appropriate table to determine if they have become contaminated.

Rocks on the Other Side is here!


From the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:

The year was 2032. It will always be remembered as the year that the leaders of the world truly lost their minds. That was the year that they unleashed the massive nuclear arsenals they had been stockpiling. That was the year they tried to wipe out all life on Earth because of petty differences, differences that could have easily been overlooked if they would have just had open minds, but let’s face it, how often did the leaders of the world ever actually have open minds?

Now, two years later, civilization is gone, most of life on Earth is gone, but there are still pockets of humanity that try to eke out an existence. Some of the Earth’s flora and fauna have also survived the nuclear holocaust. Unfortunately, now everyone is trying to survive, and that means that everyone else must be viewed as a potential enemy. Even worse, nuclear mutations have created horrible lifeforms. Some used to be human, some were animals, and some were plants, but now they’re horribly deformed, and incredibly dangerous. Not to mention the fact that there are pockets of radiation all over the world that threaten life that comes anywhere close to it.

And, of course, there’s no longer a need to worry about global climate change since the world is stuck in a perpetual nuclear winter, killing more and more of the life on Earth.

Radiation everywhere, almost constant cold and snow, mutated people, animals, and plants…this is the world that waits for you in Rocks on the Other Side. Do you dare venture into this world and try to survive?

Expanding the sale


I've had some people ask why my individual short stories aren't available in the Smashwords sale, and the simple answer is that Smashwords won't allow titles to be listed for less than 99 cents, which is where my stories are already listed. But, I figured that if there is some interest, I could expand the sale to DriveThruFiction, and you would be able to download novels, collections, and even short stories for 33%, yes, if you head to DriveThruFiction, you can now download individual short stories for just 66 cents each.

How can you pass up an opportunity like that?

An Excerpt from "Return to the Wastelands?"


The day he surrendered to Captain Bryan Howard was supposed to be the best day of young Robert Jenkins’ life, and maybe it was, but something never felt quite right to him.

The young Captain, who had also once been a member of the Rose Clan, had taken him back to a mobile unit, and Robert couldn’t believe everything he saw. Wherever he looked, there were soldiers, and these weren’t like the gang members he was used to seeing; these people were heavily armed. Robert had seen a few military style weapons in the Wastelands, but nothing like what these people were carrying, and even though he got a few weird looks, everyone was nice to him once Captain Howard explained his situation.

“Go ahead,” Captain Howard had said, pointing at what he had called a tub that was now filled with steaming water and bubbles. Robert didn’t understand.

“You’ve never had a bath, have you?” the Captain asked.

“I’ve heard of them,” Robert said, “But, I’ve never seen anything like this…what am I supposed to do?”

“You take your clothes off, and you get in and soak. There’s more soap there and a wash cloth. You clean yourself, and then you get out and dry off, and there’s some clean clothes over there that you can put on.”

The idea of a clean body and clean clothes was odd to him. He’d taken numerous showers, but most of them had been very cold, so he’d gotten out as fast as he could, and he’d often washed his clothes in a sink before, but Robert could actually smell a fragrance coming from the clothes that were sitting next to the toilet.

“You can stay in as long as you want,” the Captain said with a smile.

Robert suddenly felt his stomach turn and he started to tremble. “Where will you be?” he cautiously asked.

“Outside,” the Captain said with sudden seriousness. “Look, kid, I know what you’ve been through. You’re safe here. No one is going to do what those people did to you.” With that, the Captain turned and left the bathroom. Robert eyed the tub. He stuck his hand in to the water and was thrilled by the feel of the hot soapy water on his skin. With a genuine smile, he quickly took his clothes off and got in the tub. He had no idea how long he was actually in the bath. He was sure it was at least half an hour, and maybe even an hour, but it was the best feeling he could ever remember…well, not as good of a feeling as kissing Leslie, but it still felt good, and for possibly the first time in his life, he was genuinely clean.
