spiders

Arachnoid Infiltrator

Concept: “The world crumbles. Hunger and Desperation, like twin hounds, drive you into the lighted lands of the fleshly man-things who hate you.”
Content: A spider in man’s clothing.
Writing: Farcical and terrifying in turns. Their ignorance only magnifies the potential danger. In other words: an ideal player character.
Art/design: Shadowy and ambiguous imagery builds a sense of dread. Strong color choices enliven an otherwise simple text layout.
Usability: Unnerve friend and enemy alike.

Skin Job

Concept: “More scum have disappeared in the Blood Tree Wood in the past year than normal. No bodies have been found in more than a year.”
Content: A desperate search for missing persons in the Blood Tree Wood, destined to uncover more than bargained for.
Writing: Established adventure setting with clear NPC motivation, local economy, and culture. Accessible encounter tables and game aids extend the suffering.
Art/design: Michael Harmon’s signature crisp detailed line art style with some Mörk Borg design sensibilities in a (slightly) more traditional layout.
Usability: Optimized for use both as pdf and print. With conveniently located reference tables at the beginning and end of the text, mini maps with room descriptions, and pdf bookmarks.

Social Encounter With a Psychic Spider

Concept: “We both know the title tells you everything you need to hear.”
Content: A social encounter with a psychic spider.
Writing: Regal and demanding, with requests and secrets that'll make your skin crawl. 
Art/design: The desaturated, elegant, but slightly disturbed design elements reinforce the tension of a princess who wishes to be so much more than just a spider.
Usability: With prose that inspires as much as it implies. These improvisational aids provide just the right information for a truly memorable social engagement. 

The Handrantula

Concept: “A crawling goliath, its wild cousins stalk prey on their five digits.”
Content: A handsy follower featuring wriggling, undulating, and command grab.
Writing: Satire of a popular quest for the ancient bangle. Adds an innovative tactile element to its mechanics.
Art/design: Shocking pink prints overlayed with white text. Evokes the initial shock of a wild handrantula ambush.
Usability: Intense overlay encourages the eye to wander in surprise. Manual dexterity required to take full advantage of this follower.
