Langmaker: Celebrating Conlangs book coverLangmaker was a key resource for conlangers in the early 2000s. “The best thing about Langmaker was its universality. Every conlanger from every conlang community—or from no conlang community—was welcome there, and every conlanger found value in it. It was the Rick’s of conlanging.” —from the preface by David J. Peterson, creator of Dothraki and author of The Art of Language Invention
Hero’s Arc: Under the Blood-Red MountainA modern take on the great gamebooks of the 1980s. Unlike those books, Hero’s Arc has story arcs, so losing a battle won’t always result in death, but may result in a setback of a different kind. You’ll need pen and paper and three six-sided dice, each a different color or different size. One will be your strength die, one your dexterity die, and one your wisdom die. For trait checks, you’ll need to roll your trait or lower. Then you’ll use a designated die result for damage.
