Cities of the Young Kingdoms 1: The South

$ 24.99 SRP

For centuries, the lands of the west have been enthralled by tales about the mystical province of Cathay. Far to the East, this mysterious place has always been a symbol of intrigue and wonder. Now, the door to the East is open. From the lightning-born storm children, to the renowned Xan monks, Cathay’s secrets can finally be explored by those brave enough to venture into this troubled, war-torn realm.

The Cathay: The Five Kingdoms Gamemaster’s Guide is a sourcebook for Earthdawn Third Edition, containing everything a gamemaster needs for running adventures in the Five Kingdoms of Cathay— extensive setting material, guidelines for creating adventures and campaigns, information on creatures, dragons, Horrors, spirits, magical treasures, and much more! Requires use of the Earthdawn Player’s and Gamemaster’s Guides.

Alorasaz: frozen city of fur trappers, loggers and miners, deep in Lormyr's wintery southlands. A peaceful place on the surface, but beneath lurk tensions and fears as two competing families struggle to control Alorasaz's wealth. And what of Castle Kaneloon, standing on the very edge of the world? Does the Lady Myshella not exert an influence over sleepy Alorasaz?

Raschil: the bustling, civilised port city of Filkhar, a cosmopolitan place where many nations rub shoulders in the countless taverns and inns. But a city with its own secrets too: why, for instance, has the Queen not been seen for months when, once, she was society's doyenne?

Ryfel: built from black granite and mud-brick on Pikarayd's wild and treacherous northern coast: a city of pirates and reavers, and a meeting place for the barbaric clans of the interior. Ryfel attracts the proponents of Chaos and Disorder; sorcerers, murderers and dark cultists; thieves, fugitives and feuding clansmen. Pan Tang holds court here; but are the Pikaraydian chieftains as enthralled as Pan Tang believes them to be?

Volume One of 'Cities of the Young Kingdoms' explores three, very different cities of the Young Kingdoms' southern continent. Each city is described in detail with maps, locations, personalities, game statistics and dozens of adventure hooks. The cities can be used as standalone backdrops for Elric of Melnibone games, bases for adventurers, or as part of the mini-campaign that threads between them and joins them together.

Welcome to the southern lands...

MGP1318

LW: Magnamund Bestiary

$19.99 SRP

Completely rewritten, the second edition of 760 Patrons brings back adventures hooks, plot lines and ideas in the classic format of providing an encounter for the players, along with up to six options for the referee as to how the adventure will progress.

Got nothing prepared for the next gaming session of Traveller? Your players wandered off into deep space again, far from your planned adventure?

Worry not, for 760 Patrons is here to rescue you!

The original 76 Patrons became a lifeline for many Games Masters during Traveller campaigns, as it provided a ready source of adventure material that could be quickly generated when players started looking for work beyond their normal trading and exploration. The all new 760 Patrons Second Edition is literally ten times bigger and better, potentially allowing you to run a complete campaign with nothing but this and the main rulebook!

The terrifying creatures that lurk in the darkest corners of Magnamund come to life in this, the latest supplement for the Lone Wolf Multiplayer Gamebook. From the mundane Baknar and Elix, to fan favourites such as the Gourgaz and Kraan, the Magnamund Bestiary provides games masters with a wealth of foes and enemies to challenge their players with. A special section is included featuring more human opponents, allowing games masters to quickly field the likes of thieves, rogues, mercenaries and Drakkarim at a moment’s notice.
