In addition to my own titles currently in the Purple Sorcerer Games queue, (Against the Vortex Temple and Corpse World of the Carrion King, now to be co-authored with Jeff Call), I’m excited to announce that two new adventures have entered the pipeline:
The Frost Fang Expedition
A 1st level Dungeon Crawl Classics Adventure
Hearken well ye fans of Nebin Pendlebrook’s Perilous Pantry: Mark Bishop’s 2nd adventure is in on the way! Featuring Mark’s trademark blend of plucky villagers facing impossible odds, The Frost Fang Expedition challenges PCs to reach the top of a frozen and treacherous peak on a mission of discovery: why have huge chunks of a floating castle inhabited by the local mysterious sorcerer begun raining down on the once quiet village of Bitterwind? The quest for answers will uncover hidden motives, fearsome foes, and deadly environments galore!
Editing is now underway. The adventure will likely see a June-July release.
Escape from the Shrouded Fen
A combo adventure featuring a funnel followed by sandbox-style first level play.
I’m doubly pleased to announce that an author new to the Purple Sorcerer’s tower has stumbled through the gates: Terry Olson! (Author of the Goodman Games titles The Rock Awakens, Tomb of the Immortal Kahl, and Elzemon and the Blood-Drinking Box).
What happens when a demon dies? In the Shrouded Fen, oozing, scalding deathblood saturates the place with Chaos, cursing it forevermore! Now every seventeen years, when the blood moon rises a fog beast beckons all to enter; but those that answer the call never return! Now you have been chosen. Seeking ancient ruins, you plunge deep into the mist-laden swamp, encountering corpses impaled on corrupted plants, man-eating birds, and specters of past victims roaming the blood-cursed land. A floating portal of bubbling tar might lead to safety, but defies entry. Perhaps the bog’s hidden artifacts can provide the key? Only by solving the riddles of the swamp can you hope to escape from the Shrouded Fen!
Terry will be playtesting the adventure through the summer and early fall. We’re likely looking at a release near the end of 2016.
Both adventures should be tremendously fun, and I’m thrilled we’re adding them to the Purple Sorcerer lineup. Look for additional updates as the adventures progress.
