Given that not everyone on the forum hangs out in RPG land, I thought I should make the forum aware that since the original Pendraken rules were published another game called Dungeon World has been released and is moderately popular I believe:

From the recent dungeon availability thread:

Will you be printing the rules as a separate thing -and how much- or can you only get them with the starter set? I ask because I really am so pleased that I got rid of all my D&D stuff during the move.

Once I've got them all formatted properly we'll probably do a combination, so a freebie hard copy with the dungeon set, or a pdf download for a couple of £'s.

Just FYI really, but also, is a name-change in order if you want to charge for the rules?  I know Pendraken have primacy of naming, but Sage Kobold have market awareness and share...  :-\

Not sure on that one, we'll have a think once I've reformatted them.   :-\

15mm is dead. It just doesn't know it yet.

Dungeons Deep and Dark or DD&D

I felt Adventures Deep and Dark (AD&D) sounded vaguely familiar :)
