[Sceaptune Games] A Clan of Wretches

By on 18 February 2009

Sceaptune Games are pleased to announce another Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition supplement: A Clan of Wretches, new, heroic-tier intelligent opponents for the moors and wastes.

Wretches: warped and twisted clanspeople living on the fringes of civilisation. Exiled to the wastes and remote moorlands, the wretch are nomads forced to wander in the wilderness as they seek out new pastures for their herds. Sometimes launching raids into the frontiers of the civilised lands, frequently ambushing merchant caravans and explorers, these primitives are a nuisance that cannot be ignored.

But primitive doesn’t mean stupid. These wretch produce art – or graffiti – and strange drum-music that only the most sophisticated of the civilised races fully appreciated. They may worship the spirits of their ancestors, but this doesn’t mean they are lacking in divine power. They may be nomads, but this doesn’t mean their society is in any way simplistic. A summary of their art, music and castes is necessary to understand these complex and enigmatic creatures and their clans.

A new race with new twists for your Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition games.

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.
