Projects We Love

The Deck of Stories and NPC Cards

A brand new storytelling tool in the DM's arsenal.

The Deck of Stories is a collection of interesting and captivating game hooks for you to use in your home game. The cards work together to make unique story arcs perfect for anyone trying to run a One-shot or write the next part of their campaign. Also available are their NPC Cards, a collection of Pre-generated beautifully illustrated characters for you to use in your home game. Each NPC has a handful of traits that help define the character, yet still keep their background vague enough for them to be cast in any role. They could be a Noble, a Bartender, a Bandit. You name it!  

If you're looking for a little bardic inspiration in your next game, check out the Deck of Stories Here.

Varia, the First Person Card Game

Our colleagues over at Guildhouse Games just launched their first campaign!

The First Person Card Game is Here!

Varia is a new style of collectible card game that pits you against your opponent in 1v1 combat. In this fast-paced game, there are no minions to protect you or creature summons to hide behind. Instead, you raise the shield. You cast the spell. You swing for the win with your weapon of choice. If you want to win a game of Varia, you are going to have to do the fighting yourself.
