Tales from the Sands – A Land of Fire Adventure Pack

By on 4 February 2014

The heroes of old are long dead, but they are far from forgotten.

For untold generations their names have flowed through time, their lives immortalized through the storytellers who speak of their courage, wit, and good fortune. Now the time has come for new names to be added to the list of honour and new stories to be told.

The path ahead for those chosen to carry the burden of hero status will be arduous. Many will fall by the wayside, their part in the story consigned to oblivion. Others will rise above the challenges set before them and earn the only true form of immortality.

The Project

Tales from the Sands is an adventure pack for Hellfrost: Land of Fire and is published by Triple Ace Games.

Written by hugely popular and talented author Paul “Wiggy” Wade-Williams, it contains four full-length scenarios for heroes starting out on their adventuring careers. Each scenario includes encounter location maps and full monster stats. It is a beautiful book by accomplished publishers and is a fine addition to the Hellfrost players library!

The Adventures

Here are the short descriptions of the adventures that are found in this book:

  • The Golden Queen, in which a misguided soul seeks to make slaves of the entire continent by calling upon an ancient power. (Novice characters: 32 pages)
  • Darkness at Darshab, in which a small village is beset by a terrible evil that gnaws at its heart and soul. (Novice characters: 34 pages)
  • The Last Voyage of Sinbad, in which the heroes become bold mariners in the hope of conversing with Sinbad the Sailor. (Seasoned characters: 32 pages)
  • Reign of Fire, in which the heroes must prevent the land being consumed by fire. (Seasoned characters: 31 pages)

Their Goal

Their goal is to reach £1000 (approx. $1600) which allows them to complete the printing of the book and bring the product to their fans as soon as possible.

The book they have chosen to release into distribution is a black and white printed softback containing 132 pages full of adventure goodness!

The softback will have a RRP £14.99 (approx $24 USD).

With Kickstarter backing they can offer a special direct to our fans, a black and white printed hardback edition only available as part of this Kickstarter!


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.
