Swift Swords – Underworld. 

SS/Underworld is a multi-player card game in which you play a fantasy Hero in search of a legendary treasure, guarded by a legendary Monster – THE VAULT. Players compete with each other to reach the Treasure Vault, fighting the other players, the terrain, and monsters along the way.

Play is in turns, each player performing a single action of their choice, but many of the actions can involve other players, as a friend or as a foe.
A number of CLUE cards are used that need to be discovered, that will allow you to enter the Vault and defeat the Vault Monster.

Death is not a Heroes prerogative, and in Underworld you cannot die, instead you simply get beat up and may have to approach your mission in a new way, re-thinking your tactics and possibly trying to ally with another beaten up Hero to overcome the beater.

The game can be played as single session winner takes the glory, or it can be played as a campaign where your character can improve and grow stronger.

The SS/Underworld game set is all you need to play the Basic game. It has been designed for expansion however, both by me through kits, and by you through your own efforts. All the materials you will need to make your own cards and adapt the game in any way you see fit are provided. 

SSU uses a LOT of d6! You should have at least 20 dice, but you don’t have to.

Commercial offerings:

Dwarven Keep GM Aid.

Dwarven Keep is a set of basic maps for use any any fantasy role playing game.

The maps are without adornment, GMs can add their own final touches to them as they see fit.  They are also hand drawn and deliberately left ‘rough’ in some areas. I could have gone over them with a graphics tool but I personally like the hand drawn look&feel.

The maps are designed with a square grid for use in the virtual desktop tool – MapTool (http://rptools.net/). Maptool is a free package and I encourage you to use it.  It is however not required to use these maps as play aids.

Settings.

The dwarven keep can be used in a number of ways, some of which follow:

  • A wilderness fort, long abandoned and now controlled by Orcs and Worgs.
  • A key fort in a line of defences that has fallen to an invading enemy.
  • An ancient fort that is now used by human settlers and hunters.
  • A fort recently reclaimed by dwarves, but which they have been unable to re-enter due to hostile inhabitants.


The Castle of the Hand - GM Aid

http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=95621

The Castle of the Hand is a set of basic maps for use any any fantasy role playing game.

The maps are without adornment, GMs can add their own final touches to them as they see fit. They are also hand drawn and deliberately left rough in some areas. I could have gone over them with a graphics tool but I personally like the hand drawn look&feel.

The maps are designed with a square grid for use in the virtual desktop tool ¡V MapTool (http://rptools.net/). Maptool is a free package and I encourage you to use it. It is however not required to use these maps as play aids.

Settings.

The Castle of the Hand can be used in a number of ways, some of which follow:

            • As an ancient abandoned tower now inhabited by the undead and various other abominations left behind by the long past Sorceror of the Hand.
            • As a dark and brooding home of the supremely powerful Sorceror of the Hand, who requires defeat.
            • An out of the way, mostly unknown or ignored tower of evil. Where dimensional warps and evil experiments have gone horribly wrong, leaving the structure in a constant state of warfare between the various levels.
            • As the central control point of an orc invasion, masterminded by the evil Lord of the Hand.

The Tower of the Hand is called thus due to its Five Towers, that stand out like fingers from and outstretched hand emerging from the ground. Legend has it that the towers were the home of the Five Wives of the Lord of the Hand. Each was imprisoned in their own tower, and the Lord who visit them as he chose.



The Green Dragon Fortress

The maps are without adornment, GMs can add their own final touches to them as they see fit.  They are also hand drawn and deliberately left ‘rough’ in some areas. I could have gone over them with a graphics tool but I personally like the hand drawn look&feel.

There was once a mighty ancient huge Green Dragon, and it was slain by a great Hero, using the Golden Spear. The Dragon crashed to the earth and it was so huge that half its body lay buried. Only the Dragon wasn’t quite dead, but it was mortally wounded as long as the spear remained within it.

In time the Liche Lord Asteroth found the still dying dragon and using his necromantic powers converted the still living flesh into a mighty fortress for his demonic minions. He then retreated into the Dragons Brain to find all the great secrets hidden within.

His demonic minions and their servants however prospered, and extended his domain within and without of the Dragons living corpse.

The Green Dragon Fortress is an epic adventure for very powerful players. The enemies are numerous and well defended. The lair is a maze of living and dying flesh, where necromantic powers have altered the functions to suit the needs of the inhabitants. The environment itself will be hostile to the players.

Gms may use the Lair in a number of ways:

·        As an epic mission to slay the evil Liche Lord.

·        As a search and recover mission, to find the Golden Spear.

·        As a series of raids, exploring the body and its various components.

·        As a frantic and desperate mission to rescue someone held within.

Following are some broad notes and possibilities about the various areas within the body of the dragon. You may use these as a starting point for fleshing out the various areas and what they may contain.

Disclaimer: although I have corrected some of the more obvious errors in the ways things connect, these maps have been taken from my original notes from some time ago. Liberties have been taken in the positioning of organs and how they all connect, for the sake of a good story.
