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…

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.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.

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