time travel

From Bloody Angels Fell Venemous Truths

“The graves are disturbed
The weeping won’t stop
Delve deep
Delve true

Writing: Compact mechanics with descriptive fragments to embellish at the table.
Art/design: Simple polished black and yellow dungeon. Text boxes separate locations, encounters, and creatures.

Stranded Time-Traveler

Concept: “Something went horribly wrong, you’re stranded in an ancient world on the brink of destruction. Now you must get back, back to... when was it again?”

The Cross Stitch

Concept: “Sönderfall was never much to look at, but as one of the only outposts on the trek between Tveland and the Western Kingdom, travelers came to rely on it for a brief respite from the road. Until a week ago, when rumor reached Schleswig that Sönderfall had vanished overnight.”
Content: A thirty-minute wrinkle in time. One full night of adventure.
Writing: A deftly woven tale that doesn’t feel stiff or leave many loose threads.
Art/design: Carefully woven threads track the timeline, combined with careful linework and strongly delineated sections, to support a securely tailored theme.
Usability: One of the easiest to reference timeline-based adventures I’ve read.

Content: This scavenger keeps picking the wrong pockets—of time.
Writing: Brings a machine gun to a sword fight.
Art/design: Futuristic content in a traditional two-column layout. 
Usability: Print-friendly and mostly plaintext.
