For Immediate Release!
Funded Forbidden Library Kickstarter teams up with RPG luminaries in new adventure/sourcebook
Renowned designers from the glory days of TSR through today create a forbidden library brimming with wonder and terror
Fort Lauderdale, Fla., March 5, 2019 – Twitch TV channel host (ArvanEleron)Gregory A. Wilson and Alligator Alley Entertainment (AAE) proudly announce the Tales and Tomes from the Forbidden Library kickstarter has funded! Renowned authors and game designers Ed Greenwood, Ken Hite, Matt Forbeck, Aaron Rosenberg, John Wick, Cat Rambo, and more team up to fill an evocative adventure/sourcebook with magic items, monsters, poems, art and danger! Even as stretch goals will continue to add more legends of speculative fiction and game design, the project will also give newer, talented voices space to be heard.
Tales and Tomes, a 5E compatible adventure for levels 1-3, takes heroes deep into the forbidden places of Hearthglow Academy’s Library. Spell grimoires, manuals of arms, atlases and bestiaries are brought to life with tantalizing scraps of lore, stories, and art for this adventure and your own home campaign.
Brian Dalrymple, co-founder of AAE, says, “We are thrilled to be working with Gregory and all of the great talent that are ready to fill Hearthglow Academy’s Library. We want players to be both excited and a little nervous when they see their own GM pull out the Tales and Tomes.”
“I’ve been running this adventure as a live audience event for a couple of years now at the GenCon Writer’s Symposium and my players love it,” says Gregory A Wilson, genre writer and author of the Forbidden Library adventure. “This year, we’ll finish the trilogy, and our Kickstarter supporters will be able to follow along and even run the adventure at home.”
