Been a while.

Hi everyone,
Its been a while, just to keep you up to speed, I've still only had 1 donation towards A.X.E. and I have a feeling I may just cancel the project. It'd be sad because I really wanted to see it happen.

Aside from that the rules for ORCS INNIT! are coming along well from the scrappy notes from my books.

I've found a fun novelty idea that I may launch as a novelty competition, BMB - Beer Mat Battling.
BMB - an odd concept of having a game, be it board, war or Skirmish on a 3" square board.

My style of game.

There are systems out there that profess to being to the most realistic rules system, Ok chaps lets bring some reality in here, you want real?
A lucky shot on a jugular at the right angle with a box cutter, that is real, is it fun in a game?
Well I'd have to say you would be quite a strange cat to like that.
I like fantastic, heroic actions, stuff that make you go Wow! thats Drokkin cool dude!
Conan, Skywalker, Chow Yun Fat, Jackie Chan, enjoyable shit I can watch again and again.

Don't get me wrong, I like history I watched Saving private Ryan and Schindlers List and "Threads" (OK Threads is theoretical fiction), But I can't see it as fun, I just can't

Skirmish games are Brilliant if done well, but MORALE and ROUT rules, C'mon Gimme a break.
Character Generation is another bone of contention, if it takes an entire gaming session to create your character, to me that's a gaming session wasted.

Enough ranting.
Coming soon in FREE GAMES "ORCS! INNIT!" Raid your mates, Nick from their 'Ed piles and be the biggest Nob!

A.X.E. Dice Packaging

50 STANDARD VHS CASES - BLACK - PSV10I wanted something a little different, but strong and the hippy in me said "Something recycled" I found these 
VHS cases, the larger style that don't have the spindles. I dug one out from my loft and tried it out, Excellent!
The outer sleeve will carry the cover art (on the reverse will be cheat sheet style rule notes). Inside there is more than enough space for the Dice, Rules, Character cards, and miniatures. So apart from a pad of graph paper or dungeon tiles (if you have them).

Best thing is the cost £12 for 50. This means that overall the cost for A.X.E. Dice will be lower.
In fact I have decided that for any PCC games releases for sale I shall use these, they fit the book case nicely.


Some more notes on an insane idea are in the ideas article, why be a boring human,elf, dwarf or dreaded halfling. Be a BIG NOB be an ORC INNIT.

Name change and prototypes

Hi all,
First up a friend who's a hardened Indie gamer, has told me theres an RPG out there not only called BASH but BASH! its also a multiversal system, So I've gone for A.X.E. DICE - Adventure, X World (Crossworld), Engine Dice.

Secondly, I have the initial prototype Dice made, the Layout Die is the D12 and the Encounter Die is a special double D4.
The Layout Dice show, a tunnel that terminates into a X junction


The A.X.E. project is now live folks! donations can be made via PayPal, Card or Direct Debit at

All donations will be rewarded.
I do hope we can make this work there are so many ideas including some miniatures, but this can only work if we help each other, the banks certainly wont.

I just dug this one out, it was purely a note in a book saying:
"Rogue trooper - 2000ad. Tactical game possibility. GI's are cool but imbalance"

Now looking at the name I'm thinking maybe a Noughts and Crosses (Tic tac toe) style battle game.
That was far too simple even for lil ole me. Current design concepts run along the lines of a sector conquest game, think "RISK" in a BIO- RAD - CHEM Zone

Suit up people, lets get those Drogging Norts!

I can't put it any more succinctly, I have started a project using UK's premier Crowd funding site, to try and get enough backing to get the game made, with all its custom Dice, whistles and bells.
The project is currently being evaluated, so fingers crossed.
If anyone, and I hope people do donate the rewards are as follows:

£1-£5 - Our thanks and a personal thank you on our web blog + Email updates to any further releases.
£6-£10 - Email of our game CARD QUEST (Never before released) + all the above.
£11-£20 - ALL THE ABOVE + Personalized Autographed laminated A5 trading card poster (picture of Backer req.)
£21 - £25 - All the above + Email copy of A.X.E.
£26 +AGAIN ALL THE ABOVE, But you get a signed copy of A.X.E. and its custom Dice.

There may even be a T Shirt.

What is Purple Crayon Creations?

I am a gamer, Board games, Live roleplay but mostly Tabletop role play games. playing for25 years (damn! I'm old).
When I first started playing at school, even way back then the cost of games was expensive and we couldn't afford the stuff we wanted or the games we wanted to play just didn't exist.

While at High school during our Lunch times, thanks to a friendly English teacher who also did the lunch Chess club, she saw the potential for Story games and allowed us to share her club. We decided to write a few games, Hitch hikers Guide to the Galaxy being one, and my favourite written by my friend Duncan was one where we played robots ala ABC warriors.

Since then Love lives, real life etc took over, but at heart I was still a gamer, Always a wad of paper or Notebook to hand. Recently I helped my Grand daughter make a board game for her homework and we nicknamed the company Purple Crayon Creations.  But this as well as meeting Charlie Warren of Semi retired Gamer blogspot, got me thinking (you know pictures with headaches).I have so many Ideas and notes I should elaborate on them, expand and maybe if possible get them made.One thing you wont find with my games, Expansive rulesets, tables etc. I loath them I never like Rolemaster (the name even put me off), but if you like simple, quick, beer and Pretzel style games think Purple Crayon.
