Forgotten Tales of Sword & Sorcery: Future Plans

Thanks everyone for all their support. I ain’t done yet. So I figured I would give a little update and some future plans.

First, the PDF has been updated on DrivethruRPG. There a couple typos and some format errors. Those were taken care of. Of course, as luck would have it, I had already ordered a proof from Lulu. So some of those mistakes are going to be there when it hits the old mail box. But then I’ve never had a proof come out right the first time. So it will be a couple more weeks before there’s a POD version.

Now, what’s in store for the future? Well, I’ve got notes together for the first supplement and a couple of adventures. Go me! The supplement will be mainly more classes. Trust me. And well, who doesn’t love adventures. Those will follow. I don’t have any time line yet but as things get closer to completion, I’ll post more information. Same thing on the adventures, as they get close to completion, I’ll post more info about them.

Another thing that I’ve been playing around with is an “official” setting. Yes, I do have some notes but I’m not yet that excited about it. I don’t want it to be a “here’s where everything is, and who’s around” type setting. I want to be inspirational and a bit more of tool box than just a really long stream of fluff text that I’ve seen too often in many settings.

And there’s one more idea bouncing around inside my head. I don’t want to say too much yet. (Yes, I’m teasing here.) It’s just an idea and I need to kick it around a bit more and see. Trust me. If it comes together, you’ll hear about it here.

And that’s enough self promo for one post.

  1. I agree about steering clear from walls of text for settings. I tend to use rumour tables for unexplored areas and have used Towers of Krshal as inspiration fodder to good effect.


  2. I also like how the S&S Broadsword rpg published by Deep7 built an implied setting through having each of it’s one page adventures set in a different location (port, jungle, desert etc), it gave you the pieces and you filled in the rest if you wanted.


    1. I remember Broadsword. Fun game. There was also Legends of Steel for Savage Worlds, Barbarians of Lemuria, and Zefrs. I think there used to be a Broadsword version too.


  3. Yes, I had that too, he used Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats for each region to good effect, but I never used that book, which is quite telling – maybe he expanded it too much for me. I’m GMing FToS&S next week.
