It's a BLOG Captain, but not as we know it.

30 D30 30 Charts & Tables that make the most of your biggest Die

Yes I’ve been away from this blog for a while. I do plan on making a return. But I’ve been busy with my home-based business, Alien Graphics.

I’ve also been writing. My new book is available from 30 D30: 30 Charts & Tables that make the most of your biggest Die  It’s only $5.

Inside you’ll find every D30 chart ever published on this blog as well as several new ones.

Such as:

30 Dreams & Nightmares

  2. Okay, I have a couple of questions before I buy!

    1. Does it come with a d30? I can’t find mine, and the FLGS is out.

    2. The lists of Saints and Artists and so on, are they real people? From history? Or made up? What level of fictitiousness are we talking about here?? 🙂

  3. We are in the process of getting some more D30s (I have 1 left and was going to put it and the book up on eBay today).

    The Saints and Artists may bear some resemblance to actual historical figures but most of them are veiled pop-culture references. They are by no means platform specific and can be tailored to whatever system you are playing.

    Also, that link has been taken down by the original publisher. I do have physical copies on sale now. Contact me at for more info.

  7. I Sent you an e-mail this past week. It may have been filed to your SPAM folder. Our Alien Graphics website is currently experiencing difficulties with the server. (They think I owe them more money than I actually do).

    Please contact us at and we’ll get you hooked up with the .pdfs
