Quick Note - Edge of Space _ Helena's Gauntlet

So last night I put up a very short little story snippet that was very obvious set in +matt jackson's Edge of Space roleplaying game system. The same system that my previously published adventure "Horus Adrift: An Edge of Space Adventure" was set in.

That story segment is the beginning of my next Edge of Space, adventure "Helena's Gauntlet" an adventure that is more everything going wrong and less about beating up aliens with exo-skeletons. In this adventure that players will take up the roll of members of the Hellreaver Squad an utterly normal military unit that just happens to be the last people left in the city of Helena after a bug assault goes horribly right. The players will guide and attempt to make it to an Evac ship near the city's center while navigating the underground, and ruined streets of Helena, all while trying to avoid the Bugs that still patrol the city.

Currently the adventure is planned to be between 12 and 18 pages in length, feature two new bug types as well as M.A.R.S unit support (if the players can find one) and pre-made characters for anyone who doesn't want to make their own.

Maps will again be created using or myself if I can figure out how to make a city map that looks like a photo from a drone flyer. As before the title will be pay-what-you-want and exist under creative commons. I am currently looking for a cheap to free cover artist as well as a piece or two of interior art to go along with the premade characters.

As far as I know "Helena's Gauntlet" will be the third 3rd party published adventure within the Edge of Space universe and the forth 3rd party product for the system/universe.

Look for Helena's Gauntlet around mid December if I can help it!


  1. I believe you are correct, this should be the fourth product connected to EoS but the third direct adventure for the game. You have yours and +Felbrigg Herriot has one. +Josh Mannon also made a few but they are more based on than taking place in the same setting.

    Cannot wait to see this one, Horus was really cool.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
