Whisper & Venom for 5th Edition and Old School Essentials games has come to Kickstarter!

Otherworldly energy seeped into the distant Whisper Vale. Unseen, it channeled an unknown force and broke the barrier between worlds.

Can you hear the murmurs? Do you sense the danger? 
Whisper & Venom is coming back! The acclaimed (no, really!) regional setting and adventure bundle is making a comeback. The goal from the project’s beginning in 2013 remains the same: to make a game product that is as beautiful to read and browse as it is fun to play. Originally released by Lesser Gnome to acclaim and RPG hobby praise, this time, the resource will be featured in a hardcover book with a poster map and (as an add-on) a pack of 28 mm miniatures, including goblins and a villainous gnome who has become rather notorious in RPG circles over the last eight years.
Written by John Hammerle and Zach Glazar as a tribute to the fantasy adventures and role-playing game accessories of the 1980s, Whisper & Venom is an epic adventure designed to be deadly for parties of 4–8 Tier One characters (henchmen available, but not included) and useful to players, game masters, and referees of any fantasy role-playing system. Originally penned in 2013, Whisper & Venom was the first published book through the vanity press, Lesser Gnome, LLC. The intent and expectation were for it to remain their only published book.

Designed for your Fifth Edition and Old School Essentials campaigns, Whisper & Venom is a full-color, HARDCOVER book that will be shipped from our warehouse to backers in the USA and will be printed PoD (print on demand) for backers outside the USA.

Rappan Athuk, the legendary mega-dungeon by Frog God Games and Necromancer Games, is nothing more and nothing less than a good, old–fashioned First Edition dungeon crawl.

Many, many players have lost favored PCs delving into the depths of this dungeon, all the while giggling like children and having the time of their lives. Hundreds, if not thousands, of players have combed the halls of Rappan Athuk over the years, seeking treasure and fame, making it one of the best-known dungeon locations the game has ever produced. Even players who have never entered its halls know the term, “Don’t go down the Well!”

An adventure for 4 – 6 PCs
Character Levels 1 – 20
