 Shadow of the Spider Goddess

Silent crawlers with a venomous bite. Web spinners, creating sticky, beautiful homes that double as deadly traps. Nature’s most artistic killers. 

What fools would grow these tiny killing machines into the size of ponies or even larger?

Gnomes! Opportunistic dark gnomes, looking for profit, who stumbled upon an inter-dimensional substance—experimental, yet undoubtedly powerful. 

Then something came creeping down the strand that connected the spiders to the inter-dimensional world, a shadow—the Shadow of the Spider Goddess!

Help us bring the next Fail Squad Games adventure module to print! This is a REVISED edition of the copy produced for RPG Crate in January 2017.

It will be published including 

  • 1E/OSRIC AND 5E rule sets in the same book
  • 52 Pages
  • Unique monsters and challenges
  • 1E and 5E character sheets
  • Gnomes?

The writing, illustration, layout and editing is FINISHED! We just need your support to take this project to print.

Once funded we will be able to offer this adventure in HARDBACK and softback perfect bound versions. This is the first public release of a hardback module from Fail Squad Games!

Thank you very much for making our dreams come true!
