New DW downloads

May

We’ve added some interesting and exciting Dragon Warriors downloads to the website over the last couple of days.

First of all, there’s a new adventure, ‘A Weak Pleasure’, by Shaun Hately and Mark Turner. Although it was designed to demonstrate Dragon Warriors at conventions, it’ll also slot into ongoing campaigns for an interesting single-session interlude.

Secondly, there’s Ian Sturrock’s long-awaited conversion rules for d20, for those who want to bring their old characters across from That Other Game System into the world of Dragon Warriors.

Thirdly, there’s the equally long-awaited Dragon Warriors Writers’ Guidelines. So you’d like to pitch your ideas for a new DW book to us? This PDF will tell you what we’re looking for, and how to impress us.

And finally, to prove we’re serious about wanting to see your writing, there’s an actual Call for Submissions for our forthcoming multi-author book ‘Friends or Foes’.

The adventure ‘A Weak Pleasure’ and the d20 conversion rules can be found at the Downloads page, and the  Writers’ Guidelines and the Call for Submissions are at the Writing for Dragon Warriors page.

Enjoy!

A Kind of Magi

May
05

solTo celebrate May Day we had a surprise release: all three volumes of Dave Morris’s Chronicles of the Magi trilogy of young-adult novels, originally published by Hodder Childrens Books in 1997.

The books are set in Legend, the world of Dragon Warriors, and tell the story of an earnest warrior-priest and a charming rogue on a quest to save the world from the return of the Magi, the five ancient wizards who were banished from Krarth and who now circle the planet as malevolent comets.

The books are packed with atmosphere and nuggets of information and background on Legend: its countries, its history and its inhabitants. The story ranges from the bizarre city of Krarth and its battle-pits to the frozen wastes of Wyrd and the sun-blasted south with its weird magic, jinni and fire-worshippers. There’s inspiration for a hundred adventures in here.

The Chronicles of the Magi is Magnum Opus Press’s first digital-only release. The books are exclusively available  as PDF downloads from DriveThruRPG, with new covers from Jon Hodgson, priced at US$4.95 each.
