Delve into a secret world of forbidden magics and mystical artifacts!

A three-part adventure series and reference book in a new fantasy setting powered by the world's greatest roleplaying game.

Discover the Secrets of the Forbidden Library

Originally presented to authors in the Gen Con Writers Symposium as a series of adventures in front of a live audience, Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library is a fully compatible D&D 5E adventure for character levels 1-3, written by speculative fiction author Gregory A. Wilson. The adventure leads characters into the Eastern Wing of Hearthglow Academy’s Library – where they will discover why it has been forbidden to students and teachers for twenty years.


But Tales and Tomes is not only a three part adventure which can be placed in any 5E compatible setting; it is also a sourcebook, with prominent science fiction and fantasy authors, and tabletop gaming professionals lending their talents to describe various books which can be found within the library – from grimoires of spells to weaponry manuals, from atlases of vanished lands to bestiaries cataloging legendary fauna, to fragments of lore, poetry, and art – and everything in between.

Published by Alligator Alley Entertainment, the Ennie-nominated publisher of Witch Hunter 2nd Edition and Esper Genesis, and featuring beautiful cover art by Sarah Dahlinger and interior art by Sean Usyk, available in both high quality print and PDF editions, Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library brings together mysterious creatures, a vibrant setting, and a compelling story into an adventure which DMs will love to run and players will love to play – and a sourcebook which will help enhance many future adventures as well.
