News: The Pumpkin Man

OCTOBER 31, 2018: In honour of Halloween and Samhain I'm proud to announce the release of my 29th OSR module a day early! SO10 THE PUMPKIN MAN is available now! This book is a spooky holiday themed one-shot adventure intended for a group of 4-6 players of levels 4th to 6th level. It is my tenth one-shot adventure and the second adventure to take place in the newly introduce expansion area of The Dales, the ancestral home of the halflings, gnomes and dwarves in my campaign world!

It's a dark & stormy night, & your party seeks refuge at venerable Foggybottom Manor. All is not as it seems, however, & you find yourself involved in a quest to rescue your hosts' kidnapped children from the clutches of an ancient Fae creature known as The Pumpkin Man!

It was written such that the GM begins to tell the players a scary story that then morphs into an interactive spooky story told by the GM & players! It takes places in a graveyard that's actually in the land of Faerie! It doesn't really get better than that on Halloween!

News: Down the Wishing Well

OCTOBER 2018: I am really pleased to announce the release of my twenty-seventh book and my ninth one-shot adventure: SO9 Down The Wishing Well. It was written as a One-On-One adventure for one GM and one player (with a pre-generated halfling hero included), but it is easily adaptable to a accommodate a party of 4-6 players of levels 1 to 2. It is available for purchase right now in PDF format!

I wrote this adventure to commemorate my 50th birthday and, while not as auspicious as a 111st birthday, I felt my half century mark deserved a celebratory dungeon crawl featuring some of my favourite elements of the fantasy role-playing genre! Here, in this adventure, you will find a plucky little hero, a village in the grip of a cruel overlord, puzzles and traps, scary beasties, magical wishes, and dreams coming true!

Your player feels an unnaturally strong desire to climb down the Old Well just outside the village on their birthday, which was a rite of passage a long time ago, not knowing they are in for more than you bargained for as it is the goddess Brigid calling them...DOWN THE WISHING WELL!

News: The Mines of Mayhem

AUGUST 2018: I am very excited to announce the long anticipated release of Starry Knight Press' twenty-fifth book, which also includes our first illustration booklet, the epic dungeon crawling megamodule "THE MINS OF MAYHEM". It offers 24-40 hours of adventure at a low price! It is CURRENTLY available for purchase right now in PDF format!

Our twenty-fifth module is an homage to the adventures of yore: in this 110-page tome your players will be squaring off against pig-faced orcs in a dwarven mine, invading an ancient crypt complex, and then battling the forces of a hidden UNDER-REALM city full of evil denizens. Old School gaming really doesn't get much better than this! There are also additional side quests thrown in to keep the party active and engaged!!

In THE MINES OF MAYHEM your players are going to be tasked with discovering what tragedy has transpired at the DWARFHOME MINES, where unknown marauders have attacked the miners, and shut down mine operations. The dwarves recently dug so deep they intruded into hidden UNDER-REALM city of ROCKHOME. While neither side was aware of the other, both prospered. Now, however, a war has begun and your party is thrust onto the front lines in the confrontation between the surface-dwelling forces of the Light and the Under-Realm forces of evil! Are they up to the challenge?

An integral feature of this adventure is the included ILLUSTRATION BOOKLET, which contains 32 illustrations showcasing various encounters in the module, so the GM can show their players what their characters are seeing at appropriate moments, to aid in immersion. Players can see exactly what their characters are seeing!

As with all of my OSR adventures, inside you will find great Old-school fantasy art; detailed blue and white dungeon maps; classic hex overland maps of the adventure environs; new magical items, new magical spells and new monsters to challenge you and your players!!

JULY 2018: I am pleased to announce the release of Starry Knight Press' twenty-third book, which is also our second compilation module, the book "AMAZING JOURNEYS". It offers FOUR ADVENTURES for one low price! It is CURRENTLY available for purchase right now in PDF format!

Our second megamodule is a gateway to adventure: in this 76-page tome you will find four exciting modules to challenge you and your players. Your group is going to be introduced to a variety of challenges, in a number of settings, requiring several different skill sets. There are battles for sure, but there are also puzzles, traps and thinking problems!

In Krampusnacht your party will be called upon to rescue a group of elven children abducted by a demonic fiend and recover the tribe’s Alfspark before the sun rises. In The Bloody Barrow your players will be called on to rescue a foolish young sage who has wandered into an ancient vampire court’s barrow mound. Your players will be asked to rescue a militia guard unit which has gone missing while investigating strange goings on in the mountains in Shrine of the Titans. Lastly, in Sea Hag’s Folly the party must investigate a sunken ship, defend a fishing village from invasion by a force of angry aquatic humanoids, and then rescue some villagers captured by the evil sea hag responsible for all this trouble!

These modules are set within all four of the nations of the author's published campaign world: Alderburgh, Dùn Bhriste, Jarlburgh, and The Red Eagle Barony. This book provides excellent background information for those GM's setting their games within this campaign world, and it includes four detailed overland maps in the Old School style, new monsters and new magic items and 18 pre-generated characters for you and your players to enjoy in many gaming sessions!
