Expedition to the Wastes of Chaos and Other News

I know it’s been a while but I’ve got a few exciting bits of game design news to share with you!

Wastes of Chaos Kickstarter

This launched today and is already funded. I worked on Wastes of Chaos over the summer after I finished writing my sections for Campaign Builder: Cities & Towns and had a lot of fun. This is a really cool sourcebook for running campaigns in blasted wastelands and haunted deserts filled with evil cults, dust goblins and ancient ruins. 

Although not Midgard-specific, it’s very easy to use the material in Wastes of Chaos in the Wasted West or the Red Wastes, as well as Eberron’s Mournland, Greyhawk’s Sea of Dust, or Anauroch in the Forgotten Realms. I wrote a series of drop in adventure locations for the book and also contributed an adventure to Tales from the Wastes.

Book of Ebon Tides

This new book is out now and is available on the Kobold Press store. My contribution was very small – a couple of monsters  (River/Styx giants and lesser lunar devils) and a magic item, so I am looking forward to digging into the rest of the book.

Potbellied Kobold’s Guide to Villains & Lairs

Also available is Potbellied Kobold’s Guide to Villains & Lairs from Jeff Stevens Games which I worked on towards the end of last year. I wrote a couple of villains – Garrak Oakfist, an erstwhile crime boss who is doing his best to put his violent past behind him and establish himself as a respected local business owner, and Zanetta Nightshade, aka the Toxic Terror, a talented alchemist and notorious assassin who offers her explosive services to anyone willing to meet her price.

Garrak’s Silver Cloud Casino has maps by the amazing Saga Mackenzie – I am always thrilled to see my rough pencil sketches turned into something beautiful. 

The Anatomy of Adventure by M.T. Black

I also wanted to mention this Kickstarter on adventure design by my friend M.T. Black which also launched today. M.T. Black is one of the most successful indie-creators on the D&D scene, and has a lot of great ideas about what makes a good adventure. I loved the first edition of The Anatomy of Adventure and am looking forward to reading the updated version!

That’s all for now, except to say I am just finishing up the follow up to my Warlock Lair, The Slumbering Titan, and this will hopefully be published in the coming months. There is one more lair in the series to come.
