Zine Month 2022 Projects


Sherwood

A Game of Outlaws


A stand-alone game of 2d6 action with character creation, rules of play, and ready-to-run adventures.

No matter where you started—as a merchant, a performer, a peasant, a knight—you found yourself an outlaw in the greenwood. In this Fueled by the Void game of a fantastical 13th century England, take up arms against tyrants, keep your people safe, and fight for justice when law fails.


Dragonmaw Cave

A D&D Funnel Adventure


For current and classic editions of D&D! Complete with rules for 0-level play and character creation options including new classes and legacies.

For many decades, your towns were guarded by Olkana, a kindly brass dragon, who lives in Dragonmaw Cave to the north. No one has seen any sign of her in months, though, and recently livestock and pets have been stolen, travelers have gone missing, shrines have been desecrated, and even some wells have gone foul. You and your friends traveled to Dragonmaw Cave for Olkana's help.
