Guest Creator Arthos World

Introduce yourself to the World of Arthos! Read Brian Tenace’s debut fantasy/steampunk series, “The Andarian Prophecy“, or enjoy the 5th Edition compatible RPG campaign and supplements. The Storms of War campaign boxed set includes everything: a level 1-8 campaign, a supplementary item hardcover, a monster supplement, and a book with optional rules and subraces to help immerse yourself in the world of Arthos.


Brian’s creative realm spans a high fantasy world reminiscent of Tolkien and J.K. Rowling. The Andarian Prophecy introduces dragons, giants, elves, magic, tech-savvy gnomes, mind-control, and the politics of a completely developed world without being pedantic. Join the epic war to free the people of Andaria from slavery!


If role-playing is more your style, sample the Storms of War. The module introduces players to the small island of Landt, where they crash-land following a mysteriously powerful storm. The entire campaign gives the “open-world” feel while maintaining a well-structured plot. Tons of plot-relevant random encounters with creatures players have never met offer a challenge for even veteran players of 5th Edition! Can you escape the island of Landt?


Welcome to Arthos!

Guest Game Creator Bryan Larch

Bryan Larch, a lifelong resident of West Virginia that recently re-discovered the joy and excitement of playing Dungeons & Dragons. For the past few years, ever since his sons asked him to teach them to play D&D, he has been writing old-school, 1e AD&D, home-brewed adventures. He has had the pleasure to DM all of them with many great and wonderful players that love the game as much as him. On several occasions, a few of those players suggested he publish their adventures so others can run them as well. He was reluctant at first but then decided to give it a shot after he was given the opportunity to submit an adventure for Flipping & Turning magazine published by Smoldering Dung Games. He then realized, with some effort on his part and some teamwork, it may be possible for him to be able to pull together the resources needed to produce an adventure module.


On the Edge of Wilderland” is the result of those efforts. This module has been designed to be played with the AD&D ruleset. It contains three inter-related adventures for PCs ranging in levels 2nd-4th. Each adventure can be played as a “one-shot”. Or play all three of them (in any order) in an attempt to survive the entire module. Either way, the DM and players will enjoy this old-school style adventure module. Each of the adventures have detailed maps and a random encounter chart. Also, there is a chart listing several of the important NPCs the characters may meet during their stay at the Twin Fort, an impressive military outpost. In addition, there are eight pre-generated characters from which the players can choose if need be.

Game Bundles for Charity

I wanted to bring attention to two bundles full of games for different charities to support on the indie platform Itch.io.

The first is one to raise money to help during the war in Ukraine. 736 creators are offering up 998 table-top RPGs, computer games, music, game development tools, comics, books, and more for a donation as low as $10. The money raised will be split between International Medical Corps and Voices of Children.

Two days left to help them reach their goal of $6,000,000. They are already over $5 million.

The other one is smaller, with 493 items from 300 creators, but still a good cause. A fundraiser to fight for trans rights in Texas. Proceeds will be split between Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT) and Organizacion Latina de Trans en Texas (OLTT). This one is all table-top RPGs. They have also partnered with Hit Point Press, Solarian Games, and Monte Cook Games where if you send them a screenshot of your reciept you get more games from them.

They are running 19 more days to raise $420,000.

Lots of great games in either bundle. Maybe something new that could be played at the con. Both good causes to support.
