Ruined City of Cyfandir

An adventure I wrote (after being given the premise, toys to play with, and a bunch of suggestions by Alex) for the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System (ACKS) game has been released into the wild. Comes in two flavours, ACKS and 5E compatible: Ruins of Cyfandir (ACKS) Ruins of Cyfandir (5E) From the blurb: Two hundred years ago, the elven capital of Cyfandir fell to the savage assault of the Great  Dragon Aisoth, self-proclaimed goddess and sovereign of the lizardmen who followed in her wake. The elves, occupied with the Argollëan War,

Book of Lairs: People & Places

My latest Book of Lairs: People & Places was published recently and is available here. This is my fifth Book of Lairs: People & Places, written with the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System in mind, but easily compatible with other similar old school fantasy RPGs. This book has ten ‘lairs’ and the NPCs that inhabit each, again on two-spreads: a double-page for the usual map/lair combination, and another double-page covering the NPCs and whatever treasure can be found. I have used stock art by William

Lairs & Encounters: Ettin

More maps of lairs from the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System (ACKS) Lairs & Encounters book. There are some lairs I’ll be skipping, either because the maps technically already exist (as in the Death Charger, which is just a copy of a map that you can find in another book) or because they aren’t caves, or buildings, just trees or something that a map isn’t really needed for. Ettin The first map for August is the cave lair of an ettin.

Book of Lairs: Abandoned Places

My fourth Book of Lairs: Abandoned Places is now live! This collection of lairs consists of the usual two-page spreads of maps and text, with monsters taken from the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System (ACKS) core book and the Lairs & Encounters book; but it is compatible with other old-school fantasy games with hardly any effort. This book is themed, with each lair being abandoned by its former occupants and taken as the lair of some other creature or creatures. There are 13 lairs in all.
