Venger Satanis, the mind behind Kort'thalis Publishing, has many thoughts on what makes a D&D game awesome. He's collected them and put them all together in a single book, the Crimson Dragon Slayer, so you can have rockin', kick-ass sessions whenever you want. He's put out an updated version of the book, and it's free to download, so why not go see what he's got in mind? It might just help out your game.
Venger Satanis over at Kort'thalis Publishing has a deep love of those nostalgic RPGs of the 80s. And he wants to share that love with you. To do so, he's created Old School Renaissance Like A (Censored) Boss, a new book designed to help you run old-school style RPG sessions. If you've ever wanted to get back to that "classic" feel, this is the book that'll help you do so.
Venger Satanis. Head of Kort'thalis Publishing and writer of, among many other things, the Cha'alt megadungeon and setting. Also, a lover of mid-word apostrophes. What inspires him? Where does he draw his inspiration? What is he excited about in the OSR? What's something he's never shared before? Get the answer to these questions in an interview he recently did with The Mixed GM.
If there's one thing players want for their characters, it's options. With more options comes more ways to customize their character into exactly what they want to play. Well, the folks at Kort'thalis Publishing are helping with the release of Cha'alt Ascended, a set of new and updated feats for your characters. Many of them are specifically designed to be useful in their Cha'alt megadungeon. You can pick up your copy now.
Been thinking about maybe running the super-dungeon Cha'alt for your players, but weren't quite sure? What about checking out a playthrough video that Kort'thalis Publishing posted? Obviously, they don't go through the whole dungeon (that'd be quite a stream), but you can get a good idea of how the game works and see if it's something for your group.
The Cha'alt megadungeon is a little bit different in theme and flavor than most. So, your average, everyday character might not really fit in with it all so well. But don't be afraid. The folks over at Kort'thalis Publishing have a solution. They've created Cha'alt Pre-Generated, a book of 27 pre-made PCs that perfectly fit the style, theme, and tone they're going for. Either use them as-is, or use them as a basis for your own character. Whatever you choose. You can pick up your copy now.
Want to really test your players? Give them a dungeon that's filled with terrible dangers? Really get them in a bind and make them think their way out? That's what you get in Cha'alt. It's a huge dungeon book for classic and 5th Edition D&D that contains a couple intro dungeons, and then the big superdungeon, the Black Pyramid. You can pick up a pdf of this adventure now.
All of us were new gamers once. And many of us still play with new gamers from time to time. And, let's face it, something like Dungeons & Dragons can be confusing for a new gamer. Thankfully, there's those out there that have created guides to getting a new player up to speed as quickly as possible. Kort'thalis Publishing has created such a guide with their Crimson Dragon Slayer D20 guide. You can pick up your copy now. It's free, so why not check it out?
But what about things like Space Balls and Futurama and Galaxy Quest? Where's the RPG for those types of sci-fi worlds. It's here in Battle Star: Trek Wars. And you can pick up your copy now.
