HILARITY ENSUES WITH CRAZY GNOMES AND A VERY ANGRY CHIMERA IN NEW GNOMELAND SECURITY SOUNDSET FROM SYRINSCAPE
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (March 30, 2017) – More than three years in the making, Syrinscape, creator of the award-winning apps that bring tabletop games to life with movie-like sound, announces today the release of the Gnomeland Security SoundSet.

The Gnomeland Security SoundSet features the voice work of Ryan Costello of the Know Direction podcast with his iconic chimera and gnomes from the show. With the most-ridiculous solutions to a raid from a most-vicious beast, with flying attacks, fireworks, flamethrowers, chainsaws and more, Gnomeland Security is already a fan favorite in the SuperSyrin community.
“Gnomeland Security is hands-down the funniest darn SoundSet you’ve come out with. I listen to it just to bathe my ears in the hilarious images it forms in my imagination.”  – SuperSyrin Subscriber
Gnomeland Security is bar-none the most chaotic Syrinscape SoundSet I’ve ever heard,” says Costello. “Even if you’ve run a million encounters about a chimera attacking a gnome village, none will compare to running that encounter with the Gnomeland Security SoundSet.”

Syrinscape creator Benjamin Loomes gives pro-tips for incorporating the Gnomeland Security SoundSet into tabletop gaming in this new video.

Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide
Campaign Sourcebook
Retail 39.95
160 pp.
Published by Wizards of the Coast

I feel it struggles with being an adventurer’s guide while trying to become a campaign book.
