Tell me what’s awesome about your new Kobold Press adventure anthology Journeys to the West.
It’s sea-faring adventure. What’s not awesome about high-seas escapades and exploration? Plus, we’ve thrown in enough new monsters and islands to keep a campaign going for quite some time. Although these are set in Midgard’s Western Ocean, a GM could really place them in any campaign with no trouble at all.
The empire is a place of wonders and strangeness, since its people and its merchants serve scaly masters with needs unlike those of the humans, dwarves, and minotaurs of the north and west. Here is a sampling of some of the unique goods found in the Empire’s bazaars, from Harkesh to Sarkland and Achillon to Na’akesh. For full descriptions of these items, you can snag a copy of Player’s Guide to the Dragon Empire.
Journeys to the West, the new 8-island, 5-adventure anthology of seafaring excitement for Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is out from Kobold Press! Set sail from Barsella, the City at the Edge of the world, home of adventurers and pirates, and explore the vast, uncharted waters of the Western Ocean of the Midgard Campaign Setting–or any ocean you choose to sail!
The PDF of the Player’s Guide to the Dragon Empire is out and on the Kobold Press store webpage, and it is chock full of draconic goodness for gamemasters and players alike. Dragons in fantasy RPGs have always been problematical: Are they mythic and invulnerable beasts as in the Tolkien tradition, or are they 1st Edition stat blocks that you can overcome with handy spells and convenient magic swords? The Player’s Guide to the Dragon Empire gives players and gamemasters the tools they need to find a fun and playable solution that falls wherever they want between these two answers.
Some days, it just feels like the stars have aligned and everything is falling into place.
That was the Friday of Gen Con 2012—and I don’t mean the fact that the panels went well, or that a seat opened up at the Ars Magica game, although that contributed. I mean that I sat down to run “Grandmother’s Fire” from Tales of the Old Margreve and had it rocking on all cylinders, exactly as it was supposed to be. To be fair, I have to warn you that spoilers follow.
