The inaugural post for the new year is another collaboration with the Sanctum Secorum podcast. Check out the space dwarf race in the companion volume, along with other excellent content!
The space dwarves are actually based on a really vivid dream I had a few months back. I’ll eventually work them out to a full story, but it was great fun to explore their culture and behaviour for this article. And Joni’s illustrations are damn great, the man is a wizard with inks!
Check out Sanctum Secorum ep. #42 – Arena and the episode companion zine though the links below!

I recently contributed my take on a DCC bard class to the Sanctum Secorum Companion zine. I’m pretty happy with it, so go take a look and a listen through the links!
Sanctum Secorum episode #35: Hundra

“The hyperboreans are an ancient, antediluvian race, who ruled the world back when
the earliest men were still but mewling apes.
Their civilization was brought low by a dimension-spanning curse, a creeping doom from beyond the lurid veils of reality. For the hyperboreans were wizard-kings, molding reality with forgotten magics, and consorting with all manner of daemons, elder entities and starbeasts from the Great Nether.”
Collaboration with the Sanctum Secorum podcast continues, this time with a description of the ancient hyperboreans, complete with rules to generate hyperborean characters.
I had a lot of fun writing this article, as it was based on an adventure seed born of storytelling collaboration last winter. But please, read the details in the zine, and as always, check out the podcast!

“The past is a vaunted wonderland of hidden secrets. Whoever digs deep enough can uncover them. But beware! The arcana of the past is not without danger!” Continue reading “The Sign of the Sanctum”
“Us dwarves, we’re good with the caves. I mean, we live underground, can see in the dark, what’s there to be afraid of?
But we still carry a lantern with us, everywhere we go.
Why, you ask?
Well, would you like a shadow following you home?” Continue reading “Shadows in the Sanctum!”
