New Game of Thrones-style Campaign Released For Dungeons And Dragons By Publisher
Classic tabletop RPG Dungeons and Dragons has been on the receiving end of quite a lot of love lately, namely unique classes and campaigns. One such example of the former is the extremely well-received – if overpowered – Old Spice ‘Gentleman/Gentle-Lady’ D&D class. Now it appears that independent publisher Arcana Games is looking to strike while the iron is hot, releasing a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign that should excite you Game of Thrones fans out there.
The new Dungeons and Dragons campaign is called ‘Sellswords’ and it is marketed as being “darker and grittier” than your typical D&D adventure with a comparison more along the lines of Games of Thrones or The Witcher rather than Lord of the Rings. Here is the description of the campaign:
A ragged band of mercenaries is all that stands between a starving northern village and the wolves at its door.
“Sellswords is a small introductory campaign, comprised of three adventures, encapsulating 12-16 hours of gameplay. It is darker and grittier than most D&D modules, closer to Game of Thrones or The Witcher than Lord of the Rings. The structure is simple, straight forward, and conveniently laid out.”
The above mentioned Sellswords is available as a PDF file for $4.99. For those that prefer the more ‘dark and gritty’ D&D adventures, Arcana Games also has an RPG titled “Blood and Bone” that also utilizes a d20 system, though it utilizes custom-built characters via a Traits system rather than cookie-cutter classes. Blood and Bone is also available as a PDF file, with a price point of $9.99. Those that prefer a physical version can purchase hardcover and softcover versions.
