Forbidden Lands: The Spire of Quetzel Now Available

April 12, 2019

Wind dies. Pale grass grows in spirals. Lichen forms blurred iridescent sigils on cracked stone. Black trees curl their trunks and crook their branches as if bowing. The Spire is driven through the skin of the world like a pin through curling paper.
With every step toward the tower, it writhes and warps like a hallucination. It seems infinitely tall, like something in a dream. There is one silver door, marked with a pavonated eye in iridescent blue and green.

This volume collects four adventure sites for the Forbidden Lands RPG, written by some of the best writers in the field today. Within these pages you will encounter a dreaming Demon-Queen, a prison of strange beasts who call themselves a family, a coven of witches who don’t get along, and the weird graveyard of the last thunder lizard to walk this land. The Forbidden Lands are more dangerous than ever – only the most foolhardy and resilient adventurers will live to tell the tales of these adventures. This 72-page hardback book contains:

  • The Spire of Quetzel by Patrick Stuart (Veins of the Earth)
  • The Bright Vault by Chris McDowall (Into the Odd)
  • Hexenwald by Ben Milton (Maze Rats)
  • Graveyard of Thunder by Karl Stjernberg (Rad-Hack)
  • Art by Alvaro Tapia.
