Four Against Darkness
Four Against Darkness is a solitaire dungeon-delving game that may also be played cooperatively. No miniatures are needed. All you need is this book, a pencil, two dice, and grid paper. Choose four characters from a list of classic types (warrior, wizard, rogue, halfling, dwarf, barbarian, cleric, elf), equip them, and venture into dungeons created by dice rolls and your own choices. You will fight monsters, manage resources, grab treasure, dodge traps, find clues, and even accept quests from the monsters themselves. Your characters will level up, becoming more powerful with each game… IF THEY SURVIVE.

Treasure Hunters of Charlemagne
AD 790. The Roman Empire is a distant memory. Europe is gripped by endless warfare. In these desperate times arises King Charles of the Franks. Wishing to unite the lands and end the senseless slaughter, the King sends secret agents to find supernatural artifacts, like the fabled Spear of Destiny. Many of these agents never return, perishing at the hands of weird beasts and unspeakable perils. Historians would record that mighty battles forged the realm of King Charles, later known as Charlemagne. The truth instead is that brave parties of adventurers, the intrepid secret agents of the King, are the ones who secured the new empire. To play this adventure, you need copies of Four Against Darkness and Four Against the Abyss.
