BOOKS OF LAIRS

Back in 2014 I started a Patreon site to support the creation of a generic fantasy Book of Lairs, using the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System RPG (ACKS for short). Took a year before it was finished and published, and soon after I started working on a second book, the Book of Lairs: Urban Encounters, which was completed last year. I then started on a third Book of Lairs: The Vale of the Iron God, and have just released the fourth book (Book of Lairs: Abandoned Places).

I'm continuing the series with: Book of Lairs: People & Places: ten lairs inhabited by NPCs (bandits, for example).

This will be followed by: The Desolation, a hex-crawl similar to the Vale of the Iron God, with ten larger (i.e. multiple page) lairs.

And then, the final book will be the Dungeons, which I am envisioning as a set of twelve dungeon-tile lairs and another six entrance/exit lairs, that can be fitted together in different ways and produced as a small random dungeon.

For those pledging at higher rewards, I'm also going too throw the Postcard Maps into the mix again, as well as a higher level reward for those who fancy grabbing a personal map for a fraction of the cost it takes to commission one. There is also a mid-pledge level for those interested in seeing works-in-progress and nabbing more maps as and when I produce them.

I'm also open to suggestions of what to draw, any tips or advice other map-makers and illustrators have, and I hope to engage you with work-in-progress shots, videos of me drawing the maps, and anything else that inspires me.

For all who pledge, whatever amount and for whatever length of time: thank you! Without your support I wouldn't be able to keep up buying the pens and paper that I use to draw these maps, and I truly do appreciate all the support you have given me.
Thank you,

Simon. www.theskyfullofdust.co.uk
