Jerry Stratton, Ed.

Journey deep into abandoned castles, solve intricate puzzles, fight strange creatures, and wield arcane power. Adventure with a group of intrepid companions in the tradition of “The Three Musketeers” or “The Lord of the Rings.”

Like the adventurers of old in Egypt, you will delve into long forgotten tombs, but in your adventures magic will fuel danger and creatures of myth will stalk the darkness. You will search uncharted wilderness for lost knowledge and hidden treasure.

Where the hand-scrawled sign warns “beyond here lie dragons,” your adventure begins.
