MISSION STATEMENT

What we're all about, in a nutshell.

Dwarven Craftsmanship

We pride ourselves on making sure our materials are functional, clean, readable, and rock solid.

Forge Your Own Story

Published adventures are a framework for fun, not a gospel. Take our stuff and make it your own.

Games are for Fun

RPGs aren't always rooted in logic, sometimes they're just awesome, and we're okay with that.

Low Prep or GTFO

We want you to be put our work to use immediately with little to no prep. More gaming, less homework.

Not for Everyone

There's plenty of sanitized, safe RPG content out there. That's not us, bring your crucifix.

We are a small team dedicated to making delightfully dark, unique, and fun content for your favorite tabletop RPGs with our primary focus being on Schwalb Entertainment’s Shadow of the Demon Lord Role Playing Game.
