The next turn of the cards... the Adventure continues in Comet over Echo Rock

Cover art by Brian Lee
Lettering by James Lee

The Tarot Adventures began with the Draw of Glenfallow.   Pieron changed his destiny and the fate of the world itself is being rewritten.

Now the next turn of the cards is on the table.  The Comet is drawn and appears over the Echo Rock silver mine.

Pieron's rule in Glenfallow has begun.  The squalor and devastation of the goblin occupation is being swept away as settlers arrive to build farms, homes, and new lives.  The Temple of the Sun is being rebuilt thanks to the efforts of a young priestess and an elder monk.

In the northern mountains dark forces continue their depravity.

Dwarves have arrived to re-open the lost Echo Rock silver mine.  They are met with monstrous violence.  Now they bury their dead in the shadows of the northern mountains, and look to Pieron for aid.

In the dark caverns of the mine dwell viscous monsters thirsty for fresh blood.

Echo Rock is rife with peril.  It will take courage, iron will, strength of arms, and perhaps a bit of magic to overcome the dangers lurking in the mine.

The challenge lies before you.

Can you triumph where all others have failed?  Can you brave the monsters of the mountains, rid Echo Rock of its terrifying occupants, and take revenge for murdered dwarves?

Dwarves burying their dead by: Kelsy Cowan

There is glory to be seized, political clout to be had, and treasures to be won.  You must be brave enough to face the perils of the mountains, skilled enough to do battle with the monsters of the mine, and lucky enough to survive.

Raise Pieron's banner, restore the mine to the dwarves, and the comet will fly over Echo Rock.

Tarot Adventures, Book Two:  Comet over Echo Rock

The second book in the Tarot Adventures series will see its KickStarter launch in January (date coming soon).  I will be conducting a live streaming of the KickStarter launch party where I'll be taking questions about the Tarot Adventures series, hearing from folks who supported Tarot Adventures, Book One: The Draw of Glenfallow, and generally having a good time as we launch this campaign.

Check out The Draw of Glenfallow KickStarter campaign for post release updates and comments from backers who have or are playing through that book to see what they are saying about the book that launched the series.

The Tarot Adventures are planned to include 22 unique adventure modules, published through the coming years, with each adventure themed after a card of the major arcana of the classic Tarot deck.
These adventures are setting neutral, allowing them to be placed into any fantasy campaign.  Come with us as we explore the story that starts with one common man who took a chance to change his destiny.

Tarot Adventures, Book Two:  Comet over Echo Rock with be funded through crowdfunding efforts on KickStarter and Indiegogo. These two campaigns are to be launched together, to expand the audience for this book.  A portion of all contributions are paid to contributing artists.

ALL artists working on this project are freelancers and you can find their information and more samples of their works on the artists biography pages linked to this blog.  Sinopa Publishing LLC pays all artists for their contributions based upon the contracts negotiated for such work.  We do NOT pay in "experience" or "exposure" as "experience" won't pay for groceries and people die from "exposure".
