[Raging Swan Press] Road of the Dead Available

By on 14 August 2010

Raging Swan Press has just released its first GO PLAY adventure, Road of the Dead. GO PLAY adventures contain everything a GM needs to get started quickly including an easy to prepare and run format, six pre-generated player characters and player handouts for every major encounter area and new magic item. Most GMs should be able to prepare a GO PLAY adventure in about one hour, so if you know anyone who might need a quick pick up game, let them know about Road of the Dead!

About Road of the Dead
A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GO PLAY adventure for four 3rd-level PCs by Creighton Broadhurst

Centuries ago, the Tuath were a mighty folk who strove against the goblins of the Tangled Wood for dominion over that ancient place. Defeated by treachery and their feral, warlike enemies the Tuath’s civilisation was thrown down. Their settlements were sacked, their places of strength broken open and their holy places despoiled; the few survivors melted away into the trackless gloom of the deep forest leaving behind nothing but remnants of their once-great culture. The Road of the Dead, a ceremonial pathway representing a soul’s journey to the underworld, is one such fragment that yet lingers in the Tangled Wood awaiting the brave or the foolhardy. A cunningly designed death-trap, it hides the forgotten treasures and legends of a fallen people.

Road of the Dead takes place on The Lonely Coast (a free, extensively bookmarked PDF) but is easily adaptable to a GM’s personal campaign.

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 dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
