World of Conclave: Finally, an update on the Llaza racecourse. Find out about the city of Llaza's iconic location, learn what it takes to enter the deadly Viceroy's Cup.
The Lazy GM: We've been working hard on proof-reading for the Book of Brutes - Ogres, Trolls, Minotaurs, Atach and Ettin all get a ton of class levels, templates and variant builds. Meanwhile, work continues apace on the Pathfinder version of Goblinoids, with all sorts of exciting new takes on the OGL versions. If Lazy GM: Pathfinder Goblinoids goes down well, expect to see Pathfinder Dungeon Beasts some time next year!

World of Conclave: An update on money in the World of Conclave, particularly the Imperial Yen. Find out the history of the yen, what you can buy with it, and the ways in which representational currency can change fantasy gaming.
The Lazy GM: The Book of Brutes has turned into a bit of a brute itself, but it is nearing completion. Undead and other Fell Foes is also on course for a release by New Year. In other news, we are working on a Pathfinder version of our Goblinoids book, hopefully the first of many conversions. More news on this as we progress, but at the moment we are having fun with the new feats and class abilities!

World of Conclave: For this update we look at the island nation of Kam Ultdour, a land where centuries of magical duelling between paranoid Magician-Lords has left a land scarred with warped reality. We also give a glimpse of some of the most powerful wizards on Conclave, the squabbling group known as The Seven.
22nd July 2009
World of Conclave: This week we are proud to present our first fully-fledged core character class. The Shaman takes a flexible approach to divine magic, sacrificing a breadth of spell knowledge for spontaneous casting, plus a range of spirit-related abilities and some new spells, all in a downloadable PDF. As a bonus, we present three example shaman characters of varying levels to help or hinder your player characters.

9th January 2009
Amazing to think that it's been almost three years since this site started, and almost ten years since the Creative Conclave was first born! Third edition D&D has come and gone in that time, but we shall continue to produce OGL material to highlight the flexibility of the d20 system. Things to expect in 2009 are the continued exploration of the World of Conclave, including the Ssth-Gar lands, the Outer Continent known as Fallen Sun, Kiranjika the Nation Below and the Hudan Technocracy. Still in the works for the Lazy GM are the Book of Brutes (ogres, trolls etc.) and Undead and Other Fell Foes (creatures of the darker planes of existence).
The Lazy GM: We are now selling bundle deals for some of our titles. The Evil Humanoids bundle gives you all the orcs, goblins, bugbears and hobgoblins you are likely to need, whilst the Reptilians bundle gives you a selection of scaly cold-bloods in the form of kobolds, lizardfolk and troglodytes.
Buy them from Drivethrurpg or RPGNow.
World of Conclave: A new player character race is featured in this update - the Edraldi, creatures of earth and stone. Not just a dwarf rip-off, these incarnate spirits come on four different flavours for you to try.
