Mordite Press has just released a new Torchbearer Sagas adventure, The Crypt of Khaab’r!
High in the steppes of Barbaria, the epics tell of Khaab’r, a brave and fearsome wanderer who rose to become King of his tribe. His dagger, Tiger’s Tooth, was his constant companion throughout his legendary exploits. During his daring moonlight raid of High Hollow, it was Tiger’s Tooth that silenced the lookouts. When he was captured by the army of Sanction, it was Tiger’s Tooth that cut the rope binding his wrists. Throughout the rest of his life, Tiger’s Tooth was there, hanging at his hip or gripped in his fist—a symbol of his strength and cunning. When Khaab’r died, Tiger’s Tooth was placed in his crypt to serve him in the afterlife.
Centuries have passed. Khaab’r’s tribe has settled down, building a town on the shores of the great Khor’aat lake. Now foreigners arrive daily in Shaa Khor’aat—merchants and mercenaries alike—seeking their fortunes in this once remote trading post.
Ka’mara, the elderly King of the Khor’aat tribe and descendant of Khaab’r himself, has sent out a call to all willing adventurers in the town: retrieve Tiger’s Tooth and bring it to him, so that it may aid him as it did his storied ancestor. The locals believe Khaab’r’s tomb is cursed, and they fear the goblins that reside in the Canyon of Spirits. But outsiders, handy with wit and steel, may be right for the job.

Jared has just released Wanderers, Outcasts & Exiles, a new Torchbearer Sagas supplement!
A dozen strange heroes from distant lands, weird cultures and unfortunate origins for the Torchbearer roleplaying game. Includes 12 new classes (levels 1-10), new gear, new weapons and armor, new spells, new locations and two additional bonus character classes!

Shane King and partner-in-crime Hayes Edgeworth have brought us a new Torchbearer magic system, Rune Casting, along with two new classes that use it: the Dwarf Wanderer and the Fisk Gambler!
An expert magic system for levels 1-5, Rune Casters contains the rules and procedures for the arcane art of rune casting. Also included are two sample character classes which are capable of such magic:
– The dwarf wanderer, who walks many paths.
– The fisk gambler, who presses his luck.
No longer are runes the exclusive domain of hidden wizards and proud dwarf clans. Whether you will boon your companions with unmatched strengths, or curse your enemies with confusion and withering, the power of rune casting is yours to wield.
But speak the phrases properly, adventurer, for the consequences of trifling with such gifts from the ancients are great and heavy!
The Rune Casters are available in PDF for $5 via PayPal: https://t.co/Ell9U8wO19
Shane will be happy to answer any and all questions about the Rune Casters at the Torchbearer G+ Community.
Have you been missing classes like the Monk or Barbarian in your Torchbearer games? Well Jared Sorensen, the guy behind genius RPGs like Inspectres and Lacuna (not to mention one of our Torchbearer developers), has you covered. He’s just released the very first Torchbearer supplement under our Torchbearer Sagas license: The Wanderers!
It offers up six classes: the assassin, barbarian, half-elf bard, druid, monk and strider. He’s selling the whole package for $6, which comes down to $1 per class. Check it out!
I think my favorite thing is that the Barbarian class gets a choice at first level:
- They can be an Outlander, recently arrived in civilized lands with a full complement of gear, including either hide armor(!) or a weapon
- Or they can be Escaped: They start with nothing but the clothes on their backs, but they get to take an additional Wise related to the culture that enslaved them.
