Samaris - City Adventure Book in Hardcover

Fire rained from the heavens. It lit up the sky above the city like a faerie tale and silence fell as the citizens gathered on the city squares and stared at the spectacle. Then the storm of fire struck down. - Death of a Godking, cc. 627

Samaris is the innovative first companion volume to the Dark Dungeon fantasy role playing game. It is both a guide to the once mighty Isle of Samaris and the city Southport, as well as a trove full of new ideas, templates, skills, magicks, maps, creatures, people, and surprising alleys to adventure. Become a Chaos Hunter, an ImperiMor Dragon Rider, a secretive Storm Mage, a noble of the Van Nassen family, or a revolutionary seeking to abolish slavery.

Samaris takes your games to a completely new level, as your heroes choose new Friends, Patrons and Rivals. With these contacts the players may influence the adventure in new ways, by calling for them during play. At the same time Game Masters can prepare their stories more quickly, and hook the heroes to the story by using their personal friends and enemies. Also, the players may consult the book at any time, and suggest to the Game Master where they would like to go.

Samaris has well over three hundred pages, and is lavishly illustrated with well over a hundred original works of art. It sports over a hundred location descriptions, over a hundred personal contacts, sixteen new hero templates, many new creatures, dozens of new skills, magicks, artifacts, maps, and countless rumours. Samaris works best with the Dark Dungeon game, but it can be easily adapted to any system.

Samaris is a source book for both Players and Storytellers, which should be on every game table.

First Release: Shadow of the Haunted Keep

Finally! After many hours of hard work here it is at RPGNow, the Shadow of the Haunted Keep is for sale at $1.99. Forty-eight pages of adventure for Dark Dungeon or OSR.

Have you ever wondered what a classic style adventure of 1981 would look like if it were written today? Written for a system that's a bit more story-oriented? That's what I tried to answer in this adventure kit.

An adventure kit I inadvertently started designing over half a year ago, when I tried to convert D&D system adventure into Dark Dungeon 2nd Ed, and vice versa.

Inside you'll find:

- a full fledged three-barreled adventure
- maps, encounter tables, scene tables, monster descriptions, NPCs, magick items
- seven ready to go heroes
- encounters and map for the town Holmeston
