||Alea Iacta Est - The die is cast!
Upon Foundations of Stone
Beneath the walls and towers of adventure, beneath the ground upon which
the adventurer treads, lies the foundation. It is that which holds the
construct, which drives the challenges, which brings the flavor of a
world’s imaginings to light. It is the maelstrom of creation through
whose eye the game of heroic chance plays out.
What Lies Within
The Castle Keeper’s Guide includes a host of new material for the role
playing enthusiast. From world creation, to dungeon designs, managing
non-player characters, character attributes at high levels, spell use
and cost, equipment its use and wastage, the tumult of storms, from
warfare to combat, monsters, treasure, death and more. The Castle
Keeper’s Guide provides the CK and the Player with a host of new tools
for their use; tools designed to enhance play, not hinder it; designed
to be malleable from gaming table to gaming table.
