Friday News Update – January 15th

Today: a MONSTER update!

It’s the news you’ve been waiting for: the BEOWULF: AGE OF HEROES .pdf will be finished this month.

And it really is a monster. It’s 256 pages of glorious gaming goodness, featuring breath-taking artwork and a fully detailed setting, both steeped in Anglo-Saxon lore, plus all the characters, encounters, monsters, locations, maps, treasures, traps and tables that you’d expect from a top-quality RPG manual. It’s truly been a labour of love, and the finished product is pretty stunning (even if we do say so ourselves).

A sneak peak at some of the artwork, from Jon Hodgson, Scott Purdy and Jan Pospisil…

Fight Like A Girl. By Scott and Jon, this is one warrior that’s ready for battle.
The Sacred Grove. A chapter opening, by Jon.
A Dragon of the Air, by Scott.
Followers, by Jan. How beautifully detailed are these!

And have a peek at Jon’s painting!

If you backed the project on Kickstarter, then there’s a full update over on the site

Or, for a taste of BEOWULF: AGE OF HEROES, have a look at the intro-adventure, the Hermit’s Sanctuary, over on DriveThruRPG.

Explore the Standing Stones of the Hermit’s Island – but beware!

And don’t forget – our Handimonsters! This week’s 5e monster is The Screamer, featuring art by Scott Purdy, and (as ever) a full set of stats and skills, and all the necessary lore and background – enabling you to drop him straight on top of your unsuspecting PCs.
