Quick Note - Assault on the Southern Horn Released!

The newest adventure from Genius Loci Games is up over at RPGnow and Drivethrurpg. This new adventure abandons the Two-Page Adventure style to answer some of the biggest questions of the Usarm games and to create many more. "Assault on the Southern Horn" was written by me and features interior art, back cover art and cartography by the Fantastic +Frank Turfler (I went to the Stan Lee School of Nicknaming) and was created for use with +Frog God Games' Swords & Wizardry rules or nearly any OSR ruleset!


In the swamp lands of southern Usarm a horn, glowing and bright has erupted from the fetid earth. The town of Backbend has become lost within the swamps it once boarded and its people have vanished. Tyor, Sage of the Mage Academy in Coralius, and his young apprentice Cami have been sent to investigate and discover the nature of the swamp’s encroachment and that of the glowing Southern Horn.
What Tyor finds is a town overrun with Dark Elves and strange beings. Cami is taken in the night and Tyor desperate and alone sends a plea over psychic webs. Come to Backbend, breach the horn and discover its secrets and the plans of the Dark Elves … and most of all save the apprentice he regards as a daughter!
“Assault on the Southern Horn” is the Longest Usarm adventure yet! 6 pages of adventure that answer questions and summon many new and possibly campaign shattering ones!

"Assault on the Southern Horn" is available in the typical Genius Loci landscape and as a traditional portrait .pdf file and I am currently working on getting a print version of the game up and ready!

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!


Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

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 …
