Have a look at the first of our Behind Crushmas Specials
The History of Crushmas
So, we raised some money for another season of One Hit Die. Not enough for a full season and certainly not in time to beat Canada's notorious winter. I still wanted to shoot something and continue writing in this world. All I needed was a sub-plot for One Hit Die that didn't reveal too much of season 2. So I made up the holiday Crushmas and inflicted it upon our characters The more I wrote the more fun I had with the ideas, the more excited I was to share it with you guys. You can watch all the episodes here.
What is Crushmas
Crushmas is a free non-commercial holiday. You spend nothing but time and your imagination. Once a year, DM's and players can celebrate Crushmas by making up a random encounter giving their some of the players loot they really want. Could be Gauntlets of Giant Strength or maybe a cursed gem of coal. It doesn't have to happen in a forest, it can happen in a dungeon, a ship, anywhere your players happen to head.
3 Ways to celebrate Crushmas?
1) Use your imagination.
2) Write stuff. Make stuff up that's never existed before.
3) Share it with people.
The more I wrote about Crushmas the more fun I had with it. It started with writing the Crushmas special and ended with "Walking in a Crushmas Wonderland" Help us spread the spirit of Crushmas. Let us know your favourite monsters to kill or loot to get. What magical item do you want most? Do you need a magical bra of holding incase you run into a gelatinous boob? Or maybe you'd like to fight a Tarrasque Turkey. Let us know what you want in the comments bellow and we'll take the best ones and add it to our "12 days of Crushmas my DM gave to me" currently being written. If we get enough responses we'll get the cast of One Hit Die to sing it before Christmas.
The bloody conclusion to the Crushmas Special is now online- Merry Crushmas Everyone! http://youtu.be/InoPU9mSYXk

www.crushmas.com is coming....
Welcome to our new site. We've had a busy couple months since we launched our first episode in August. We won some awards at ATL Webfest, made some new friends at Toronto FanExpo and some raised money through an Indiegogo campaign and a successful comedy and costume party. Unfortunately we didn't raise enough to complete a full season like we planned, but we had enough for a couple more episodes. I scribbled some stuff down, we shot 2 weeks later and the rough cut is looking great. Stay tuned for the One Hit Die: Chrushmas Special
On-line Dec 10 and 17.
