New Mini-Games Compendium now available   Leave a comment

Mini-Game Compendium 2 cover image (large)

Yes we have a new product out! Well, sorta – it’s our second compendium of past catalogue freebies. This one collects all our Argor-related catalogue mini-games into one product. While it’s designed to support Argor FRPG, it should be pretty easy to convert these games to work with most fantasy RPG rules. Also, the wargame elements are completely standalone, with full rules provided.

School of Axios is a location resource: full details of a minor magic school, including plans of the college house, details of the school’s owner and his staff and six new spells. Also included is some intriguing back story concerning the owner….

Raid on Spurhaven starts with a mini-scenario where the party must race against Great Orcs to find a magical artefact that could turn the course of an upcoming battle – followed by a wargame that allows the actual battle to be fought.

Escape from the Trow follows the same format – a mini-scenario in which the party is sent to rescue the Council of Elders, who have been taken for ransom by trow. This is followed by a wargame as the Free Peoples send a raiding force to evacuate the party.

If preferred, both wargames can be played completely standalone.

So, that’s three resources for just $1.50! You can get them from wargamevault and wargamedownloads.

Another catalogue, another free game…   Leave a comment

Draken Games Catalogue 10 truncated cover image

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that Catalogue 10 is out now and includes the free hex-and-counter wargame 1875: Mars Attacks Essex! Inspired by HG Wells’ War of the Worlds, this is designed to be concise (an A4 board and just two pages of rules) and quick (half an hour per game at most). As with all our catalogue freebies, once the catalogue is retired the game won’t ever be available for free again!

You can download your free copy at wargamevault or wargamedownloads.

Enjoy!

Catalogue 9 (plus freebies) out now   Leave a comment

Ok, so after two years I have finally produced a new catalogue, and it’s now available from wargamevault and drivethruRPG (and hopefully from wargamedownloads soon as well). As ever, all our game products are described in detail, with some insights from the author (ie me!) and quotes from customer reviews.

I am also maintaining the tradition of including a free game with each catalogue – or rather two free games in this case. Just like Catalogue 8, the new one features a mini-RPG scenario written for Argor FRPG followed by a linked mini-wargame. Together they’re called Escape from the Trow. You can play either as stand-alone games if you like.

To download your FREE copy just go here!

Update   Leave a comment

It has been a long time coming, but I’m starting early play tests of a new free mini-game to include in Catalogue 9. Same format as Catalogue 8: an RPG mini-scenario written for Argor rules, followed by a mini-wargame. The wargame can either follow-on from the events of the scenario or be played as stand-alone. More news when the catalogue nears completion!

New product: Dig-In For Victory   Leave a comment

Ok, our latest resource is now available. Dig-In For Victory! is mainly intended for wargame designers wanting some information about warfare in the late 19th/early 20th centuries. However, there’s a lot of data that is transferable to other periods, as far back as medieval times, plus some useful stuff for RPGs.

The resource contains extracts from the Royal Engineers’ Manual of Field Engineering 1911. Lots of useful stuff about digging defences, creating fortifications, building bridges, defending various types of location and blowing things up. Plus scans of the original illustrations, including some great plans for outposts and strongholds.

As this will of varying usefulness, depending what you want from it, we’re using the ‘Pay What You Want’ option at wargamevault for the first time.  Click on the image below to have a look at our storefront page there, where you will have the option to preview this product.
