Along the Road 01 – The Tower on the Plains

Want a free thing? 

Excellent, click here. 

I am creating some free micro supplements over the next few months. I figured I would go with a bit of a theme too, so each supplement will have something to do with being on the road and can be easily used as a little tool for GMs.  I want to explore minimalist styles, learn how to use InDesign, and create an old school vibe with a twist. 

Minimalist style. I often find premade adventures unruly to use. They often have too much detail and require you to know far too much to make it work. I have played a lot of them though. Even the adventures that completely bogged down with excessive information (including my own) can still be run but I would prefer something with a bit more freedom.

InDesign. I am lucky enough to have access to InDesign through my work and I don’t know really know how to use it. So, I’m going to learn. I figure I will give away the stuff I make while learning.

Old school vibe with a twist. I like the look of old school D&D modules. I don’t know why (well, I have an idea however that’s a story for another time) but I just think they’re neat. As for the twist. Literally no idea. I am hoping my own style will develop while doing this and that will bring forth a twist. Maybe, let’s find out. 

I’m using a range of stock art for these projects. I don’t have the funds to finance custom art for this training exercise. In saying that, there is so much awesome stock art available. So, even if I had the funds I’d probably still use it. 

For this little adventure I used art from the following artists:

Dyson Logos
Fat Goblin Games
William McAusland

Well, that’s the first in the Along the Road post. In the subsequent posts, I will talk more about design choices and stuff. But not this one.

Feel free to throw me any feedback or constructive criticism. 

If you would like to support my work and follow me on my journey into game design and writing you can support me on Patreon.

Cheers!
