Deviate from the path and get pulled into an adventure in the Myrewood, a fearsome forest. This adventure will begin in the town of Prondadol, within which the Player Characters will be greeted by a sense of disarray. Rumors of disappearances flood the streets and public establishments, and townsfolk seem less willing to walk the roads at night. While wandering the town, Player Characters will see more than a few notices posted on every street from families, loved ones, and town officials announcing missing persons and offering rewards for information that might lead to their finding. As the PCs investigate, they will find themselves trapped in the Myrewood, stymied as they attempt to find a way through the mists. Mists in which deadly enemies weave their dark plots…
A key component of our easy-to-use design, our GM Reference Book holds all stat blocks and other pertinent information necessary for the main plot. Not only this, but optional encounters, which we call Not-So-Random-Encounters, or NSRE’S, are included. Each one is more than a one-line hook, and make for intriguing, captivating, and occasionally humorous additions to the game.
Within the Adventure Book, a riveting tale unfolds in a manner designed to entertain the GM, as well as their players. With passages to read directly to the players distinct from text for the GMs eyes only, and number and color codes directing to handouts and stat blocks, there is very little a GM must do but familiarize themselves with the content, and embellish upon it only if they desire to.
Created by a maestro of map making, every area the Player Characters visit is painted in glorious detail. Two versions of a single map are included; one spoiler-free for the players, and one for the GM. The GM's version is labeled clearly with directions to encounters and areas of interest within the GM Reference Book.
Never worry about a player forgetting what their item does ever again! Every item found as part of A Menace in the Mists is included as an individual item card. On the front is stunning artwork of the item. On the reverse, a detailed explanation of what the item does. From weapons to armor to scrolls to potions, players can keep these cards and refer to them as needed!
Scrolling through image-hosting websites for hours finding art that is close enough to work for an NPC is now a thing of the past! Every friend, ally, and adversary is depicted on incredible full-color handouts. They can be held up when prompted by the Adventure Book, and players will be surprised by their GM appearing to have memorized everything about the NPC! In reality, everything needed to know is written on the reverse side, with space for notes about accents, relationships, mannerisms, or other personal flairs a GM may bring to the character.
We believe art is important to a game. Art inspires the imagination and when players are shown one of our attention-grabbing location artworks they are further immersed into the game. Not simply static landscapes, our art dynamically catches actions, atmosphere, and critical plot scenes. Everything a Player Character sees is depicted in art, including visual aids for puzzles.
Inspiration is a fine enough reward for doing well in the game, but we like to shake it up here at Gooey Cube! Shake it up too by using Gooey Reward Cards. Choose a card from the deck! Will you receive an extra attack action? Temporary hitpoints? Or the coveted hero or fate points, which can change the destiny of a Player Character? Whatever you draw, Gooey Reward Cards add an extra layer of fun to the game!
