About this project

Please help us publish this first of its kind RPG campaign series. 'Dragonwars of Trayth' is the first full campaign series to take characters from 1st to 30th level in one continuous 25 module campaign for Pathfinder, 3.5, and Osric(1e). 

Explore an epic fantasy world with all of its dangers and splendors. Solve riddles, slay monsters and face many challenges.  Live the adventure and become part of the legend.

Each module and book in this campaign series will be of high quality print, laminated color softcover, high definition graphics, and full color images and text inside and out. They are made by experienced gamers and publishers who know how to make quality products that will survive the gaming table.

Veterans of the game have said:

"The most addicting and exciting adventure played in the last decade" ...Trevor S. (30yr RPG gaming veteran)

 We listened to what the players and game masters have said they wanted in an adventure and applied it to the series. Take a look and you will see the high quality, attention to detail, and playability of the series.

Risks and challenges

We are a publishing company hoping to publish a 25 Module RPG Adventure Series with 4 Core Books. Between all of our employees, we have over 30 years experience in the RPG world, and we pride ourselves on being committed to bringing an amazing experience to RPG'ers everywhere!

Our designers began developing the concept for our campaign three years ago, and started test-playing shortly afterwards. With nearly 3,000 hours of test-playing, our dedication to providing quality material is evident.

When performing any task or project, setbacks are likely to happen, and cannot be planned for, though we try. We will address every situation differently, diligently looking for the solution that will allow us to complete our goal in a timely manner, without compromising quality.
