Quick Note - Cyclopean Deeps now available on OBS

Frog God Games has released volume one of +Matt Finch's Cyclopean Deeps for both Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry on OBS sites like Drivethrurpg and RPGnow.

Volume 1 starts of the serial mini-campaign in a huge way, taking players through 4 fully released adventures and setting up the rest of the campaign. Cyclopen Deeps is NOT a low-level campaign series and starting characters are recommended to be between levels 10 - 12. Running home at around 161 pages this single volume can probably sustain a group for a year of adventure!

From the listing for the Swords & Wizardry version:

Deep beneath the ground, in those regions where the echoes of mankind’s feet are seldom heard, where even firelight is a bizarre intruder from a long-forgotten place, the foes of mankind breed and multiply. It is a realm of dark chaos – for these creatures of the echoing deeps count each other as rivals and enemies. It is a place without peace, a place without virtues, a place where every countenance of evil is to be found in sluggish torpor, stirring restlessly in dreams of cruelty and hatred. These dark and deadly provinces are known as the Under Realms.

Most named regions in the Under Realms are quite distinct from each other, whether by geological formation or by the types of inhabitants that have established themselves in strategically important areas. Characters who enter this area expecting to find drowic elves, deep gnomes, and other “normal” features of the Under Realms will swiftly discover the error of their thinking. The Vaults of the Sunless Sea, located to the north of the Cyclopean Deeps, might fit that description, but the Cyclopean Deeps are a different and decidedly more unpleasant area into which the denizens of the Vaults seldom venture.

This series of adventures forms a mini-campaign in the depths of the earth, suitable for a party of 4+ characters with an average level of 10-12, or 8+ characters with an average level around 7.

CD1: Down to Ques Querax
The first adventure in the Cyclopean Deeps mini-campaign, Down to Ques Querax introduces the perils of the Under Realms with encounter tables, region map, and many new monsters. Designed as the "link" to Rappan Athuk, this module may also be used to connect any deep dungeon to the Under Realm.

CD2: Eye of the Titan
The second adventure in the Cyclopean Deeps series by award-winning author Matt Finch. Eye of the Titan takes the adventurers to the strange, underground fortress of Ques Querax, where they may discover strange secrets if they are unlucky enough...

CD3: Izamne, City of Endless Dark
The third installment of the Cyclopean Deeps describes Izamne, the city of the dark stalkers, a huge basin-cavern where thousands of denizens of the Under Realm trade, murder, and scheme in the total darkness of the "Law of Last Light." This installment is best used together with Cyclopean Deeps 4: Secrets of the Dark City, in which more about Izamne is revealed. Contains 2-page player map and 2-page Referee map.

CD4: Secrets of the Dark City
The fourth installment of the Cyclopean Deeps, Secrets of the Dark City will be the second half of the book's third chapter, which covers the vast underground city of the dark ones. The dark stalkers and their mysterious servants the dark creepers are by no means the only perils of the great, open-caverned city -- the plans of a thousand villains crisscross in the dark places of the world.

Pick it up now for 16.99 while it is on sale! Normal price is 34.99.

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 …
