Our original English solo game, Vampire of Havena is Pay What You Want. This solo adventure has all the rules needed for play. You just need a pencil, paper, a D20 and a D6. 

Watch a solo play through on our Youtube channel.

You hear the muffled sound of footfalls on wet cobblestones, then the sound of heavy boots stepping through puddles. You can’t see farther than ten yards in the thick fog that billows through the dockyards of Havena. You’ve lost track of your pursuers, but you’re sure they haven’t lost track of you. How can you get away? You never respected law and order quite as much as the priests of Praios said you should, and now this is the worst trouble you have ever been in. You cannot trust your eyes, and your ears even less so. Too many sounds echo in the streets—the hiss of an alley cat, the flapping wings of an old raven, and footsteps that seem to approach from every direction…

Conspiracy of Mages

We’re offering the Conspiracy of Mages PDF as Pay What You Want (even $0.00), which is a solo adventure that includes all the rules you need for play (you don’t even need dice!).

It also has “dice” randomization images in the bottom corners in case you don’t have dice! Perfect for several hours of solo fun.

After years of homework, tests, and a life dedicated to becoming the best mage who ever graduated from the prestigious Lowangen Academy of Transformation, you now face one last hurdle: the final exam. Today you demonstrate your mastery of the arcane arts—at least, that’s what you expected when you awoke this morning. Now you are not so sure.

Your professors wield unimaginable power and command great respect in society, yet all is not well. Some cast envious eyes upon each other’s achievements and status, and a foul plan is afoot. Without even trying, you stumble into a web of intrigue and treachery that threatens to ruin the school’s reputation and end your career before it even starts.

Something sinister haunts these learned halls. As a young student of magic facing an unexpected challenge, can you solve this mystery and still manage to graduate?

    Thank you so much for helping us remain sane during this time.

  2. Dan says:

    Great initiative! I am looking forward to you also publishing adventure modules on Fantasy Grounds. This would boost the great rule system! Maybe even code an official rule set (even though morecore works as well in the meantime.) Thank you! Dan

    Hi people! I hope that you are all doing well during these odd times. I wanted to make contact with you guys to inform you if you didn’t know about a product called TaleSpire. It’s a new virtual table top that looks like a real rpg with miniatures and terrain and is just amazing. They are looking for RPG games to add to their rule sets and I think it would be awesome for the Dark Eye to be a part of it and I think it would do very well. I am just a fan of your game and would love to see it in TaleSpire which I think has the potential to be bigger than FantasyGrounds and roll20.
