Self-Promotion: Spire

cover for the spire RPG book

My latest RPG book, Spire, is now available to buy.

It was also supported by the people on my Patreon site, who got to see this as it came together.

The book is a system-neutral setting/dungeon, 168-pages, largely in the same two-page spread style as my Books of Lairs. I’ll be adding game stuff on this site to supplement the book (new classes, NPC stats, and gaming mechanics as necessary).

From the blurb:

The Spire. A towering edifice a mile high and nearly a third wide at its base. This conical spike pierces the fertile soil of a small valley, standing before a narrow pass that cuts through the Perilous Mountains. From a distance the Spire is as black as night, but upon close inspection it is made of dark volcanic glass, seamless. Openings lead inside, to dark levels that rise high, stretching from its Roots and the obsidian tunnels that criss- cross underground, to an interior garden and woodland. Higher still are levels where water is collected from rainfall, feeding a waterfall that waters the woods inside; excess rainfall cascades down the sides of the Spire, pooling around its base to form a small lake and a river that flows down through a gully below.

The Spire is a system-neutral setting/dungeon and settlement set in and around a cone of obsidian that holds dungeon levels reaching up into the sky. This 168-page PDF/book contains an overview of the setting, details of the town and key buildings, details of the Spire itself and the thirteen levels that make up its structure, and notes on factions within the dungeon and town.

Most locations are on two-page spreads, one page holding the map, the other the map text. Some go over several pages, usually ‘tables’ of loot, information, interesting characters.
