Dragonwars of Trayth, Now With 3d Gaming Boards

Dragonwars of Trayth. Remember it? The classic meltdown that was witnessed here at The Tavern. It seems like it was yesterday.

Well, I gotta give credit where credit is due. They are still working on their epic 25 episode adventure path.

Heck, they even have 3d gaming boards that they'll lug to stores or even cons (more on the cons later)

From their website it looks like the first 6 adventures are written. So, 19 to go?

I fully expect a threat if I don't take this down immediately
Anyhow, they really love their YouTube videos.

This is the one from May where they show off their handmade gaming boards:

And then here is the one from today, which tells you they will be at GaryCon next year and you can reserve a gaming board for your game:

BTW, it's the exact same video, same music, different subtitles.

I also failed to find the link mentioned to download the digital maps. Of course, that could be my fault.

I find it strange that a 25 part adventure path for Pathfinder (oh, and OSRIC, but they don't seem to be available in OSRIC stats yet) is aiming it's marketing at Gary Con. Adventure paths are generally not what one thinks of when one thinks of old school gaming these days (nor is Pathfinder for that matter) And yes, I do remember Dragonlance. I suspect the folks behind Dragonwars of Trayth remember it too.

After reviewing the Kickstarter in question, they offered the same 6 adventures in the Kickstarter. I guess they were building 3d game boards over the last 20 months.

Anyhow, here's the pitch (note, nothing in this post should be construed as a threat to Epic Quest Publishing's IP, Trademarks, Copyright or any such nonsense. Really. It's a gaming related newsworthy post. So let's just skip the legal threats all together this time around)

I thought Dragonlance... never mind.

Props to the Taverner that brought this to my attention.


  1. The snark about new editions is spot-on, I'll give him that. And the 3-D terrain looks cool. Honestly, he should be in the business of selling the terrain, not designing adventures.

  2. $25 for the 1st adventure and $20 per adventure after that? I don't mind spending money on quality, but that 8 page preview doesn't review $25 worth of quality writing or layout.

    IF you did pony up $25 for the adventure, do you at least get a printed adventure, or just a PDF?

  3. Yeah...those maps look like typical dungeon tile type dungeons...I thought it was Dunjinni at first but after looking at it again it wasn't as good. That's not the quality they boast of.

  4. This terrain and these adventures were at GaryCon 2016. Not sure how popular they were.

  5. I played one of the sessions at Garycon. Not my cup of tea -- far too linear, contrived, driven by their pre-gen characters, an annoying "the evil leader teleports away from the epic battle -- buy the next adventure to continue the chase!" and so on. It's just Dragonlance on steroids.
