It’s that time of year (at least it is in my timezone) to give away some free goodies! Free RPG Day is all about getting people introduced to new games and getting games introduced to new people, and we’re going to help with that.
For the next 24 hours (so it’s Free RPG Day somewhere in the world), Haunt and Travel Journal of Short Tales will be absolutely free for you to download! These are two awesome RPGs so get your hands on them before the time runs out!
And don’t forget that we have a free line of games: The Sigil System. It has been, is, and will forever bee 100% free; and we will keep adding mods and content to it to make it bigger and bigger.
So on this best of days, come and grab our free games and share them around!
Good news everyone! Gates by Stormforge West is now in public beta on DrivethruRPG! Here’s James to tell you all about it.
For the last five years or so I have been working on this game. It is a cumulation of over 15 years of being immersed into roleplaying games, my ideas, things I love, the stories I dream of, and many hours of playtesting. It has been a struggle of lack of experience, school, work, and other factors. But, now I have the time to give Gates the love it needs. Finally, after far too long, I have decided to release the beta to the public. It is not perfect. The writing is still rough, art is not in its proper place (some of it is just sketches) and the cover and logo are not even final yet. But, it is playable, nearly complete, and immensely fun. And I want to share it with you.
This is very much a community game, and I urge playtesters to join the discord server to discuss your character builds, ideas, worlds, and adventures. With the help of the community, Gates will become a unique and personal experience that we can be proud of. In the multiverse of Gates, anything can and will happen. Your worlds and ideas could be used by others in a way that binds the worlds of Gates into a complex web of fan-made content.
Try out Gates now by clicking on the logo above or just CLICK HERE.

Enforcer, our INQ28 game, is now available in Early Access on DriveThruRPG! Click the banner above to get your hands on it right now!
Enforcer is a miniature based narrative-wargame, or a war-roleplaying-game, in the style of the INQ28 games. It takes the best of wargaming and RPGs to create an experience of the early skirmish era miniature RPGs. Enforcer is as much about player skill as it is about character skill. Your characters and the dice will tell you if they succeed or fail at any given action, but it is about how your use your characters, about how you strategize and use your tactical skill that will determine if you win or lose any scenario.
Enforcer is a physical tabletop game meant for 28mm models. It uses a simple d100 system that keeps the game flowing and the action front and centre. The dice aren’t the be-all and end-all of Enforcer, however, and your strategies in playing the game will determine your success or failure. Each character is a mixture of stats, traits, weapons, armours and items, giving you the flexibility to kit out your character and your team to meet the demands of the mission. Enforcer is a lethal game, so make sure they are kitted out well or they won’t survive for very long. Those that survive will be better off for it, and by the end of a campaign you will have a hardy bunch of soldiers ready to take on anything.
Enforcer is still in Early Access. This means that everything you need to play Enforcer is here, but it is not 100% finished. The main reason for the Early Access is to get funding for the art. Every dollar you spend on Enforcer is a dollar we give to an artist to make Enforcer look better. While the art is being worked on, we’ll keep polishing up the rules and increasing the lore. Everyone who gets Enforcer in the Early Access stage will get the full digital release for free, and we will also give you the final printed version at cost price.
If you want to know more about Enforcer, then come chat with other players and the developers on our Discord server!
As the title says, today Z-LAND is DriveThruRPG’s Deal of the Day, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on Z-LAND yet, there is no better time for it. Until tomorrow 9am (US Central Time) you can grab Z-LAND for only $6. So click on the banner above, or simply here, to get Z-LAND now before the time runs out.
Z-LAND is where humanity is no longer the top of the food chain, where every day could be your last. Hunger, Thirst, Sleep and Exposure all wear down on you in a battle of attrition with the unstoppable Dead. Find the answer to the question “just how long would I survive” as you and your friends attempt to do just that. What makes Z-LAND unique is we take the survival aspect of survival-horror very seriously. You will see your character weaken as sleep deprivation, hunger & thirst slowly whittle them down. But that is where the choice comes in, will you just take it? Or will you do anything & everything necessary to survive? How much of yourself can you retain in your battle to survive?
We hope you all have a very happy new year, and a prosperous 2019 ahead.
Now that Brotherhood is on DriveThruRPG, it’s time to start work on the next project. You voted on what we should work on next, and as you can see by the colourful pie-chart above, you want us to update The Runed Age to the Sigil 1.2 rules.
We’re already hard at work on updating The Runed Age, and making it look clean and pretty for its 1.2 version (and if you join our Discord server, you’ll already see a few sneak peeks), but it’s not just about the looks with this update. When we are finished with it, you will finally be able to get your hands on a Runed Age hardcover version. If you’ve already bought the Runed Age, then when the time comes, we’ll give you a coupon to get the hardcover version at cost price.
The Brotherhood faction mod for the Sigil System is now available for PWYW on DriveThruRPG. Click the banner above or CLICK HERE to get your hands on it!
Brotherhood is all about getting your characters some friends, family and a home to call their own. It’s about making factions, playing in and against them, and working towards something larger than yourself.
Inside the mod you’ll find:
A full generator for building your faction’s history alongside its skills and attributes
Rules for creating a base for your faction and how to upgrade and expand it during play
A system for recruiting prospects that subtly change your faction the more members you get
A mission system for sending your faction out on assignments
Random events that can destabilise your faction if not managed
For the Sigil System as well as the next supplement for Z-LAND, we are working on creating a character generator that will model your character after you (the real life you) in the most faithful way possible. In essence, we want to turn your into a Sigil character.
To build that generator, we need to know one thing: how the 20 Sigil Skills fit together. We need to know which ones go with which, what Skills are contrasted, and if there are groups of Skills that naturally flow together.
That’s where you come in. We made a survey just for you. It has the 20 Sigil Skills in it and you just have to say how good you think you are at each Skill in real life. We’ll then take all the responses, do some fancy data analysis on it, and see what pops out. After all that, we will build the character generator and publish it.
We’ve hit October and that means one thing: it’s time for all things horror with Halloween just around the corner.
So to celebrate all things spooky, we are giving you 50% off on all our horror-themed products over on DriveThruRPG. From now until Halloween you can grab Z-LAND, Haunt, and the two Ruined Man adventures all for half price!
So click on the banners below to start your Halloween season off to a good start!
It’s been less than a week and Z-LAND is doing better than we had ever hoped for!
A couple of days ago Z-LAND took it’s first step on the ladder to Platinum level on DriveThruRPG by hitting Copper rank. It got there blindingly fast, and it will only get better from here on out. The next rank to hit is Silver level and isn’t as easy as getting Copper, so spread the word about Z-LAND and let’s get it up there to the next level!
But hitting Copper level hasn’t been Z-LAND’s only achievement. Since its release it has been sitting comfortably in DriveThruRPG’s top 20 best selling list which is a dream come true.
But it still gets better! Z-LAND is in the top 5 of all of DriveThruRPG’s horror games and supplements. It’s sitting up there with the likes of Cthulhu and vampires, and that’s as it should be, because our zombies are absolutely terrifying.
But still, that is not the achievement we are most proud of. What has been our dream come true is that Z-LAND is currently the number one best selling zombie game on all of DriveThruRPG! How awesome is that!? It has beaten all the heavy-weights of zombie RPGs to get that number one spot! We are proper chuffed to see that.
And while we may gloat and brag about this, because who wouldn’t, it really is all thanks to you. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t have gotten this far. So here is a massive thank you to everyone who has backed our kickstarter, bought a copy of the beta and corebook, watched the YouTube series, or played a game of Z-LAND. You guys are awesome, and this really is your copper medal.
It’s been a long road, but we’ve finally reached the end of it, and we can now officially say:
The Z-LAND corebook is now available!
Click on the fancy cover up above or CLICK HERE to head on over to DriveThruRPG to get your hands on Z-LAND: The Survival Horror RPG.
You can get Z-LAND in three different formats: PDF, Premium Softcover, and Premium Hardcover. If you get either of the physical copies, you can grab the PDF for free. We don’t want to charge you twice for the same thing.
We really could not have done it without you. Your help with the Kickstarter campaign, and the long beta journey have helped us make a product we absolutely love and that we know you will love as well. So give yourself a pat on the back, and then go on DriveThruRPG and get your hands on the shiny new Z-LAND corebook!
