Jack of Lies is a sandbox adventure area, outlining the city of Eskadia in its entirety. Jack of Lies comes complete with everything needed to create the ultimate city adventure and campaign: full descriptions of the city from the walls, down the streets and into the alleys, to the neighborhoods, markets, plazas on to the inns and taverns, gatehouses, tenements and more; it also includes all those elements that make a city come alive, from the city government, encounter areas, major personages, new monsters, a new race, the Changling and much, much more. Jack of Lies is a complete serial adventure as well that brings out all the rich tones of the city upon the sea! Jack of Lies comes with a mountain of maps as well!

I’ll say I’ve never heard of this game before but any game that lets you act out fantasies of being a hero with sword and shield or mage casting spells is always worth playing Troll Lord Games looks like they got one I need to check out.

Rune Lore: The Winter Runes from Troll Lord Games

Rune Lore: The Winter Runes

$ 24.99 SRP


Rune Lore introduces the magical Rune Stones and the Runemark to Castles & Crusades. The rune stones and their accompanying runes are presented for use as both magic items and as spells. Integrating them requires no new rules. The magical stones and runes are usable by any character of any race or class, allowing players to quickly and seamlessly integrate the runemark into their existing games. Spell Casters use them as spells to flesh out their magical grimoires. The spell versions of the runes are slightly more powerful, either in duration or in a affect due to the nature of the magic using class’s archetypical abilities. The series of loosely connected adventures in Chapter 3: The Runemark, lends themselves to a highly scripted campaign or as drop in adventures as the Castle Keeper may need. Each adventure is 2-6 pages long and laid out in such a way that they should be playable in a single nights play. CKs may have to flesh out the adventure with smaller jaunts of their own design. Rune Lore offers the game a highly compact, versatile expansion to the C&C game without any noisy rules or cumbersome add on systems. The Rune Lore material offers the CK and player a wide arena for expansion either on their own or with other Runes as detailed by TLG.
