Now you can create your own free or for-profit dungeons, adventures, bestiaries, and other supplements royalty-free under the Treasure Awaits! banner by following the terms of the license.

Treasure Awaits! is a retro-style introductory fantasy roleplaying game that is perfect for beginners and veteran gamers alike. Dungeon-crawls have never been like this, as the game supports GM-less, solo, and traditional gamemaster play. Quick and easy conflict resolution requires only a six-sided die. Experience perilous traps, vicious monsters, toxic poisons, powerful magics, and valuable treasures in an affordable package. It’s retro, but not a clone.

Here’s what people are saying about the game:

“Chargen took mere minutes… it was wonderful playing without a GM.”

“I played with my daughter and we both had a blast.”

“This was perfect for people like me who don’t have a lot of time to run a complex game like D&D but want that feel.”

“TA is in some ways more sophisticated and consistent than the White Box that inspired it, but not more complex.”

“…man, oh, man, the simple design hides some depth… Absolutely awesome.”

That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004.
