By on 20 January 2010

Pre-order Treasure Awaits!, the 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 playtesters have said:
” We played for 2 solid hours and had a hilarious time throughout… Chargen is just a flat-out blast…”

“I never thought I would hear this, but my wife actually wants to try the game out… the system became transparent, and second nature to everyone. “

“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.”

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. 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. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
