The first adventure in the World of Uteria is now available!

We have heard the story before—of farmers’ crops ravaged and animals gone missing. The locals claim some supernatural force is at work. But could their superstitions be true this time?

The Goblins of Kaelnor Forest: A Pathfinder-compatible adventure set in the World of Uteria.

coverfinalprint-webThis first-level adventure takes the adventurers into the Kaelnor Forest. While the eastern side of the forest has long been the home of the forest elves, the western side is infested with goblins, boggarts, spiders, and more.

The adventure takes players through the forest, where they must investigate a rumor of mysterious creatures raiding local farms. They begin in South Hollow, a farming community south of Ferryport proper, and will travel deep into the dark, enchanted woods. Are there supernatural creatures in the woods taking the farmers’ stores? Will they survive the strange fey forest?

The adventure comes with 5 pre-made player characters, so players can jump right into the adventure.

Available at both the Sagaborn storefront and Drive-Thru RPG.

Gen Con 2014 Indie Game Showcase

IGSbanner

This year, the IGDN returned to the Gen Con exhibitors hall with a refined focus: showcase the latest and greatest independent role playing games.

IGDNbooth

Booth4v2We established the Indie Game Showcase to do just that. Between the ever-busy booth, a popular destination in the main hall, the IGDN also put together a game room where independent games were being run at all hours of the day.
Both the exhibitor booth and the game room were a huge success for us which was both incredibly humbling and incredibly exciting. The interest in the booth’s products and the sheer number of return customers turned this Gen Con

GRoom1v22014 into the IGDN’s largest and most profitable convention to date.

We would like to give a big shout out to everyone who stopped by the booth to chat with the workers or to get the quick pitch and demo some of our available games. It is because of you and your interest in independent games that all of us at the IGDN are able to do what we do!

Special thanks to IPR for lending us grid-wall!

Special thanks to IPR for lending us grid-wall!

This kind of success will allow us to return to the 2015 convention season with an even bigger and more effective presence. We have great things in store at the IGDN and we can’t wait to share them with you, when the time is right!

So until then, have a great year and we’ll see you all at Gen Con 2015!

​Edara: A Steampunk Renaissance to be part of the Indie Game Showcase at GenCon

​Edara: A Steampunk Renaissance to be part of the Indie Game Showcase at GenCon 2014! [Booth 1539]

The newly published tabletop role-playing game Edara, A Steampunk Renaissance, will have its first official appearance at Gen Con 2014. A new, Revised Edition Core Rulebook and the first episode of their modular adventure series, entitled “The Prince & the Free City” will go on sale at Gen Con as part of the Independent Game Designer Showcase.

1600x1236Edara: A Steampunk Renaissance was successfully funded through Kickstarter in 2013. Backers were intrigued by its setting, which takes the Steampunk genre, usually set during pre-WWII Germany or Victorian England, and places it neatly inside of Tolkien’s fantasy universe fast forwarded to its cultural and artistic Renaissance. The outcome is a high fantasy world with a long and storied history (thanks to co-creator Carl Harrison’s dual degrees in Latin and Classical Cultures) leading up to a parallel of our own Italian Renaissance where access to Steam Power allows engineers and thinkers the ability to create the gadgets that our own inventors, such as Leonardo da Vinci, could only imagine on paper. The rich world is brought to life for the audience through the writing stylizations of lead writer Ryan Schoon, who has gone on to do work for such companies as Third Eye Games and Design Ministries, who recently funded their game Fragged Empire through an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign.

LowResPDF-OnePageCoverOn sale at Gen Con is the Revised 1st Edition of the game, which is a slightly modified version of the first printing with tweaks and additions suggested by Kickstarter Backers

Edara: A Steampunk Renaissance will also be hosting demo events in the IGDN Game Space at the Marriot Ballroom 7 and will be on sale as part of the Independent Game Designer Showcase being presented by the IGDN at Booth #1539

Non-Player Cards – Kickstarter Countdown

Kickstarter Countdown Begins: Non-Player Cards

Closes on July 30th!

KS d20Monkey BannerV2

Creating memorable NPCs can be a difficult task; creating marginally interesting NPCs in-the-moment can be even more challenging. The Non-Player Cards Project is more than a gamer tool, it’s an inspiration tool, full of great art and writing suitable for any setting and system.

10497008_1496877453878701_4805837769474898125_o

cards7Consisting of 300 cards, the deck is broken out into 8 categories, allowing you to create almost 50 trillion unique character combinations. What’s even better is that, the project offers more than just cards. If you prefer just the text, the project offers a Reference Booklet. And, if you prefer art, you can get the KS exclusive Art Book (or even the Deluxe Art book).

The project is around for only a few more days. So, if you need an inspiration tool that will help create a personable character or help spicing up an existing NPC, this tool is for you.

Jump in on the action before July 30th:

Fragged Empire – is now on Kickstarter, funded within 12 hours!


Fragged Empire – is now on Kickstarter, funded within 12 hours!

KS d20Monkey BannerV2

“Betrayed by your creators, you are a genetically engineered remnant, emerging from the ruin of genocidal war…” sets the scene as players emerge from 100 years of brutal tribalism & savagery after a terrible war and are just now returning to space.

Fragged_Empire_Facebook_v4 (1)Fragged Empire follows four non-human races as they seek to build a new society after barely surviving a genocidal war. As an example one of the playable races (the “Nephilim”) are the descendants of the genetically engineered army that all but wiped out civilisation. 

Wade Dyer has been working on Fragged Empire for the last four years with the goal of creating a stylish and exciting sci-fi tabletop game with his excellent eye for design. “I really want the art in my book to show 2 things. Firstly, it needs to convey the tone of the setting; beautiful, modern, detailed, subtle depth, but vibrant & fun. That mix of energy & grit. Secondly, it needs to convey the passionate craftsmanship that has gone into this book.” – Wade

Glittercats Fine Amusements is happy to announce that an “early edition” of our first game, Bunny Money Gunny, will be available for sale through the IGDN booth at GenCon 2014.

Bunny Money Gunny is a fast-paced, back-stabbing mini-game for three players who must hop, blast, and cash in on their way to victory. The game was designed by Stentor Danielson, with art by Cynthia Lee.
