The Amulet of Dogskull Arrives for Beasts & Barbarians

It started simply enough: the jewels of a wealthy woman, a theft in the night, and a lack of honor among thieves. A simple night like so many others, but this one leads across the Godaxe river to an ancient evil behind a door that should not be opened, to the dangers of the savage North, and to betrayal.

Take your life into your own hands in The Amulet of Dogskull, a Beasts & Barbarians adventure for Veteran heroes. The Amulet of Dogskull also includes an extensive Book of Lore dedicated to Northeim and a small expansion on designing a Trial of Manhood scenario.

Accursed Kickstarter Begins!

Accursed Kickstarter ProjectThe forces of evil have triumphed, and those who would continue the fight must rely upon monsters to hold back the darkness. The Accursed—remnants of the Grand Coven’s army twisted into monstrous forms by the Witchmarks burnt into their flesh—wander the land, unable to return to their past lives, and trying to atone for their sins.

Though many succumb to corruption, greed, and insanity, these malformed spawn of a fallen evil are all that stands between the dying light and the uncontrolled tide of the Witches’ malice.

Come to Melior Via’s world of the Accursed. Join in a dark fantasy world in which you struggle to keep the evil transformations of your body from becoming the dark stains upon your soul!

Be sure to check out the Accursed Kickstarter project for full details on awards, stretch goals, and pledge levels.

Savage Worlds Conan Actual Play Released!

Savage Worlds on the WebHave you always wanted to play a Conan-style game with Savage Worlds? The good folks over at Gamerstable did, and they had the foresight to record it!

Champions of Mother Earth introduces the characters and starts the adventure of the Tower of the Ape. Get in on the ground floor of adventure and see how other gamers adapt Savage Worlds to the swords-and-sorcery genre! Listen today.

Editor’s Note: Conan is the property of Conan International. We aren’t claiming any ownership or licensing in any way, and we don’t have a “Conan for Savage Worlds” book in the works. This is one group’s use of Savage Worlds to play a Conan-style game. Also, while their audio production quality is quite high, it’s likely to get more mature than we tend to be here.
