Currently working on setting up the print version of Spookybeans. Smaller, more pages, more elaborate layout, more artwork. It will be glorious.
Store is back up
There was some CSS wackiness going on for a bit there, but it’s all been sorted out, so the Chapter 13 Press Store is open again.
Tales From The Fallen Empire
Presenting Tales From The Fallen Empire:
100 years have passed since Mankind revolted and slew the Sorcerer Kings. Eons of slavery and sacrificial deaths to demon gods led thousands to die in a war of retribution. Now, the survivors of 7 kingdoms begin to rebuild, placing new lives and hopes on the ashes of old. Slowly, the Sorcerer King’s ancient empire is vanishing from men’s minds like pain fades as a wound heals. However, even as life continues an ancient and forgotten evil stirs awaiting its moment to strike against mankind.
Join a war torn land where the struggle for survival continues as new empires arise to impose their will upon the masses. Vicious warlords fight to control territories carved out of fallen Kingdoms. Imposing magicians emerge claiming the legacy of the Sorcerer Kings. High Priests of long forgotten gods and goddesses amass wealth in the name of divine right while Warrior-priests, devoted to a banished god, patrol the lands bringing justice to people abandoned by their rulers.
In the south, savage Orchrin, magically created ape-like soldiers from the last war, plot against humanity. To the east, The Emirate of Khurzastan wages war against the Empire of Ithmurr hoping to drive the First Men from the realm of mankind. From the north the Barbarians of Untemyrr journey south seeking adventure and relics of the previous age.
Tales of the Fallen Empire is a classic Swords and Sorcery setting compatible with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Within these pages is a detailed post apocalyptic fantasy setting taking you through an ancient realm that is fighting for its survival and its humanity. Seek your fortune or meet your fate in the burning deserts of the once lush and vibrant land of Vul, or travel to the humid jungles of Xochiquetzal to face the tribes of the Man-Apes and their brutal sacrificial rituals.
Within this campaign setting you will find
- 6 new classes: Barbarian, Witch, Lizard-Man, Wanderer, Man-Ape, & Sidhe
- Revised Wizard Class (The Sorcerer)
- New Spells
- New Creatures
- Survival & Scrounging Rules
- A detailed setting inspired by the works of Fritz Lieber, Robert Howard, Lynn Carter, H. P. Lovecraft and Michael Moorcock
Tighten the straps on your sandals, grab your weapon, and head forth into a land of trouble and turmoil. Adventure awaits those foolhardy to enter the wastelands or for those who fear not the unknown.
Issues of potentially offensive public displays vs. the sanctity of free speech aside, I think it’s time for a new holiday: Crossbonesmas! Everyone needs a little more spooky skeleton goodness in their holiday season.
