Kickstarter Barking - Revelry in Torth

+Venger Satanis is at it again! This time around he is focusing on a heavy pulp Swords & Sorcery adventure bathed in the shades of gray one is typically used to seeing in the torrid pages of 50s and 60s era S&S. 

Venger as we know is the writer of the acclaimed Liberation of the Demon Slayer and The Islands of Purple-Hunted Putrescence as well as the publisher of the shiny new Draconic Magazine! He is a unique voice that carries through and harkens back to genres and styles that many have attempted to imbrace but few have successfully emulated. In other words, the man does some fine damn work and if you haven't heard of him you should look him up over at the Venger's Old School Gaming Blog.

As for Revelry in Torth, well let the Kickstarter talk about itself:

Revelry in Torth takes place in a post-holocaust world (7 of the most powerful wizards created one gargantuan fireball to destroy the world in order to prevent a machine slave revolt).  The people of Torth live in cities surrounded by a desert of endless night and peril.
This particular adventure is set in the city called Aryd's End, during a time of festivity.  Several factions are making plans and hatching schemes.  No one is all good or all evil, merely shades of grey.
PCs will become entangled in a murder and the fate of Torth is at stake.  Sandbox, urban adventure, dark, Conan-esque sword & sorcery, just a hint of scifi, and very little gonzo.
You can bet that somewhere along the way, Revelry in Torth will include some "inappropriate material", but nothing too hardcore, grindhouse, or shocking.  Check out my blog to see what I and my previous products are about:  http://vengersatanis.blogspot.com/This adventure will be about 21 pages long, give or take a couple pages.  For characters level 1 - 3.  Hopefully, Revelry in Torth is part one of a trilogy.  But that depends on you guys.  
Revelry in Torth is funding through the end of the month with a final goal of $2,500 dollars. If Venger's past kickstarter is any indication he'll be sure to make it!

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.



I.
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!

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
