The Hanging Garden, Issue No.6

Heil og sæl, dear readers! The sixth issue of my free e-zine, The Hanging Garden, is available for your perusal and enjoyment from the usual page.

Issue No.6 is a special “Norsemen”-themed issue (actually the first of two such issues); it contains a complete deluxe Tunnels & Trolls solo adventure by Thomas Pugh, with 284 (!) paragraphs. This is as good as one of the published solo adventures.

An appendix at the end of the solo adventure (don’t miss it) presents the various kindreds, creatures, etc. from the solo adventure, should a gamemaster want to use them in their GM scenarios set in the Frozen Lands (the Viking-like setting of the solo adventure).

As always, feedback and comments are welcome. Cheers!

13th Age in Glorantha - Draft Cover and Publication Schedule

The draft cover of the upcoming 13th Age in Glorantha book has been revealed and my is it a beauty.

It is exceedingly evocative, and it confirms the heavy emphasis on the 'Let's go and fight Chaos' atmosphere at the centre of this new Gloranthan role-playing game, which is set much closer to the Hero Wars [1627] than the previous Gloranthan games (RuneQuest [1620-1625] or HeroQuest [1618-1623]), which emphasised the Lunar-Orlanthi rivalry. As the saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover but in this particular case it is very tempting to do so :-)

The publication schedule, however, has slipped yet again. The books are still scheduled for a 2017 publication, but after GenCon.
