One More Day

Hello friends!

My apologies, but if you’re here for the announcement of the new Torchbearer adventure Kickstarter, we’ve opted to push it back by a day. Sorry if you’ve been waiting with baited breath, but thanks for your interest!

We’ll launch tomorrow instead (Monday, Feb. 18). I’m not sure what time, but we’ll make sure to post here, on the Burning Wheel HQ forums, the Torchbearer RPG Facebook page, the Torchbearer subreddit, and I’ll post it on my Twitter account too.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Welcome to Stone Dragon Mountain

Hello friends!

Looking for more harrowing places to take your adventurers? Look no further! Welcome to Stone Dragon Mountain (now on Kickstarter)

Stone Dragon Mountain is Sean Nittner’s epic adventure and campaign setting, inspired by the Himalayas.

Deep inside the frozen Stone Dragon Mountain, an unearthly fire burns. It is stoked by generations of hatred for the local mountain dwellers, who try to forget their shameful history appeasing wrathful gods. but before the mountain erupts into violence and fire, a few ambitious explorers will have the opportunity to climb its frozen peaks, learn its secrets, and plunder its hoards.

Will that be you brave adventurer? Or will the mountain consume you as it has so many others before?
