Image of the day and some Housekeeping notes

Every hit is a natural 20

I shared this image to the TTAK Facebook page last night, but it was too good to not share it with our broader audience. The maker is unknown, the image was shared by someone else without provenance. I don’t care what the D&D rulebook says, that thing has to do more than 1d6 damage. Feel free to leave a caption in the comments if you wish.

I wanted to take a minute to thank David and Dan for holding down the fort while I was on vacation. It was great timing as it coincided with the launch of “5 from the Grinder”. David and I have been looking forward to kicking this off for the last several weeks as we have been contacting makers and putting together the pieces. Instead of just “getting by” in my absence, I feel we were able to actually make a significant addition to the blog.

We will be continuing to add to the series in the coming weeks and hopefully years. We most likely won’t be running 3 in a week going forward, we are in this for the long haul, but I hope we have given you a flavor of what is to come. If you are a maker, or know a maker who might be interested in participating, please drop us an email at

I also want to thank our friend Craig Nugent of Empire Outfitter. He is an exclusive dealer for many small custom makers, and he has forwarded our questions onto many of them. This simple gesture has already resulted in our making contact with several new makers, and I already have pieces from Jason Guthrie, Sergey Rogovets, and David Rydbom. We are looking forward to sharing these with you.

The response seems positive so far. I am thrilled that the series has been well received.

Thank you all for reading, and thanks again to David, Dan, and Nuge.


Gulf Shores, Alabama. My kids’ first trip to the beach. My personal policy is no pictures of my kids that will register with facial recognition. My favorite picture from the trip just happens to fit the bill perfectly.

    Clearly that mace does 1d20 worth of damage. Of course that doesn’t count any enchantments, strength bonuses… Gygax would be proud though…

    Looks like a footmans mace, which should do 1-6+1 to normal sized creatures.
    But as it’s been decades since I last played AD&D, I could be wrong. I prefer
    G.U.R.P.S. anyway.
