ZiMo23 Interview: Planet X Games

Levi Combs of Planet X Games is raising funds for Dungeon Malarky.

Q: Easy question first: Give us the elevator pitch of your project. Tell us about it in two sentences or less.

A: DungeonMalarky is an illustrated guide to weird hazards, unusual monsters, curious magical items, magical plants and bizarre spell components inspired by the literature of Gary Gygax's infamous Appendix N and centuries of folklore, legend and myth. In these pages you can find a ton of page-to-table RPG resources for your weird fantasy role playing games, asking yourself "Just what does the biodiversity of a weird fantasy campaign look like anyways?"

Q: Is this your first ZineMonth project or have you done it before? If it's your first, talk a bit about what inspired you to give it a shot this year. If you've done it before, what's something you've learned from previous crowdfunding projects that you may be doing differently this time, or, if you're not doing anything differently, talk a bit about your previous projects.

A: Dungeon Malarky will be my 5th zine in 4 years for Zinequest. The most important thing I've learned is that all of your projects should be 100% genuine, come from an authentic place and that they should always be something that you wish you were playing yourself.

Q: Finally, tell us something about your current project that really excites you but the average backer may not be aware of. Maybe a twist to an old trope, a new way of presenting something, or maybe just something you've never tried before that you're using this as an opportunity to try out.

A: DungeonMalarky is based on a counterculture classic and is unlike anything we've done at Planet X before. You can use this zine in any sort of fantasy RPG, though it lends itself slightly more to weird fantasy than, say, high fantasy. Fans of DCC, Swords & Wizardry and similar systems will especially get a charge out of the lore and ideas presented in Dungeon Malarky.
