New (And the FIRST) 1E/OSRIC Adventure Module from Fail Squad Games!
A swamp in a green lush valley is home for some, but it’s opportunity for industrious humans. Damming up the source of the water and diverting flow through some old caves to dry out the land has left some of the best agricultural land anywhere! The town of Fertile Plain sprang up as soon as the first harvest rolled in from the fields.
The cliffs at the dam have begun smoking during the day, something isn’t right. The balance of life itself in Fertile Plain is suddenly in the hands of a few fearless heroes. A hundred lives hinge on what you do next.
Chris has dubbed this “A short dungeon crawl” but it isn’t your classic room-monster-treasure by any means. This is an interconnected adventure with a LOT of potential for fun, future quests, and potential frequent failure.
Those Dam Goblins is now in the Illustration phase, and it will need some wiggling in layout as the artwork falls in place. As it stands we are looking at approximately 24 full size (8.5×11) pages of adventure. Over the next couple of weeks we will be getting this project nailed down and produced.
THE FIRST EVER Fail Squad Games Module produced, bound and delivered from the studio.
The cover art is done for Ogres of the Fen and Cover Layout nearing completion. A good deal of writing remains, maps, and of course… a good tunnel crawl. :)
Check the cover out to whet your appetite, and you can read a bit about the intro here.
Coming soon from Fail Squad Games – Ogres of the Fen!
Ogres of the Fen
The tribe of Gaundelfen ogres have long lived among a stand of trees in a large fen near the village of Lorview. The land was too wet to farm or cultivate. The villagers have kept their distance and the ogres have kept their focus south of the fen skirmishing with goblin platoons.
Some miles to the south of the ogre fen, a large band of goblins have been mining silver in the hills and terrorizing the mountain range for as many as ten years. The ogres maintained a balance and an odd sense of protection between the unpredictable goblin horde and the human settlement. An almost symbiotic relationship had emerged from the situation. The residents of Lorview began to take solace in the fact that their southern border was protected when they heard the heavy ogre drumming on the new moon.
Recently the ogres have been knocking at the door of Lorview. One by one the farmsteads are being raided and taken over by ogres. Who will stop this plague and find out why the ogres have come to Lorview? What can possibly be happening in the fen when ogres come screaming out of the night terrified from their own marsh?
This adventure and ‘Those Dam Goblins’ from Chris Clark are neck and neck in a race to be the first from our in-studio production equipment.
Last Call Oliviah is still in the works and progressing quickly Keep your eyes on the site here for updates!
Those Dam Goblins!
Classic game creator Chris Clark has agreed to team up with us to create an old school adventure module! Chris will be writing the meat and potatoes of this adventure and we will be handling the illustration, layout and production.
We are very humbled at the opportunity to work with such a well known and experienced gamer. What a great start for the Fail Squad Games family endeavor!
