Fantasy art, from pencils to pixels

by Raymond E. Gaustadnes Back in the 80’s Conan the barbarian was my main source of inspiration and the spark that got me hooked on fantasy. Soon after I discovered Middle Earth through a text only game on the Commodore 64 and I knew I wanted more! I was later introduced to the Middle Earth Role Playing game by a…

Call of Cthulhu is alive and well!

SmiteWorks has long held a license to convert Call of Cthulhu material and many adventures have appeared in the store over the years, but the flow has slowed recently.

MoreCore Extension

Fantasy Grounds is the best damn VTT out there. Or at least it is for Pathfinder and D&D 5, 4 and 3.5 and a handful of other games like Savage Worlds, Castles & Crusades, Rolemaster Classic, Call of Cthulhu and a few others. Its a pretty common belief that if there isnt a Fantasy Grounds ruleset available for your game then you cant…
