About Us


I remember vividly – like I was really there – all the incredible places we traveled to. All the colorful characters we met. Exploring the Realms together with friends made lasting impressions. The Dalelands, Elminster, the Underdark, a forge fueled by the fury of ancient dwarves. These all created strong impressions that stayed with me all these years, even when roleplaying took a backseat during life’s many distractions…

So, one of the million things on my sizable bucket list, was to create my own roleplaying adventure book. I started writing and thought “How amazing would it be to create something that sparks those same lasting impressions for new players?”. Inspired by personal favorites such as The Sunless Citadel, The Forge of Fury and The Speaker in Dreams,  I tried to capture the same feeling I got from playing those adventures – and deliver something fresh and true to myself at the same time.

A lot of care goes into the development of our products, from the first draft on paper to the final artwork and illustrations. We aim to put out materials that we are extremely proud of – and hope they bring you the same wonder, thrills and lasting impressions I treasure so dearly…
