RPG Adventures: Part 3

My third adventure that has proven, sort of, a success is currently a Best Copper Seller, and received a mixed review; but one that I’ve taken as a challenge to improve, probably towards the end of the year, or to the start of 2020. Spire This is a setting/dungeon based around the Spire and the surrounding town. It is fairly large, 168 pages, and is my longest (both in page count and how long it took to complete) work yet.

Appendix 3: Monsters The Spire has its fair share of monsters, from the walking dead, to giant goats, spiders and ant-like creatures carved from obsidian.

Self-Promotion: Spire

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
