Ramen Sandwich Press

Ramen Sandwich Press publishes books and roleplaying games. Our flagship line is Places by the Way, a series of short location/adventure modules for use with Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.

Places by the Way is a series of short modules created by veteran RPG writer and developer Douglas Sun for use with Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition. Think of them as glittering mosaic tiles that you can drop into a campaign to provide your player characters with diverting side quests and memorable interludes while they follow the overall story arc. After all, a great campaign world is one in which memorable experiences can be had even in places found by the way.

Each entry in Places by the Way consists of two different products. One version is set in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, and is available in PDF and PoD through Dungeon Masters Guild. The other version is published under the terms of the Open Game License and keeps the setting details as vague as possible, to allow you to slow it into your campaign smoothly; this version is available in PDF from DriveThru RPG, and in PoD through various outlets including Amazon. In other words, each version uses content that is mostly identical, but they differ in particulars to accommodate Wizards of the Coast's licensing terms.

Places by the Way modules focus on experiencing interesting places and NPCs, so they are meant to accommodate a wide range of character levels. Where it makes sense to do so, options for scaling encounters are presented.

You can buy Places by the Way modules individually, or you can buy a subscription through Douglas Sun's Patreon page.

Cooking for the New Mars
"This book is for the reconstitution of the soul," Margaret Ellory writes in her Introduction, "for thoughts on the creation of new recipes and new techniques that will invariably evolve as we begin the colonization of our sister world." Cooking for the New Mars is part speculative science, and part foodie manifesto. This pithy, yet thoughtful volume offers dozens of recipes for entrees, sides, treats and staples based on careful consideration of the ingredients that will be easily available to the first settlers on Mars (or indeed, any new world). Ellory reminds us that the connection between who we are and what we eat is timeless, and that our dignity cannot be starved. Astronauts can make do for a while on manufactured products that taste like pressed cardboard, but colonists will need food that reminds them of their humanity.

Cooking for the New Mars is available in print-on-demand through Amazon (click on the image to reach the product page) and other online outlets.
