Ground Rules is now available! (The Salt Mine #3)

Heya folks! Suzi and I have just released the latest in the Salt Mine series, Ground Rules, at Amazon. This installment revolves around a ghostly attack recorded on film by a ghost hunting TV show. Wilson (code name Fulcrum) is sent on the mission to scrub the files and then find out why the ghosts in the UK have decided to break a long-standing peace treaty.

We'll be releasing new Salt Mine books (e-book and physical books) every month for the next four months. This series, as well as our Shattered Moon series are in Kindle Unlimited, so if you subscribe there, you can read them at no additional expense.

Oh, and if you like what we write, please give us a short review so other people can find our books easier.

Three more Shattered Moon Novels available!

I'm pleased to say my wife's first three books are now out!
They're the post-apoc story of Chandi Choudary, a 16 year old member of the Church of Parkour. Chandi's lived a relatively sheltered life beneath the shattered moon, but all of that changes when a meteorite falls from the sky and into her possession. In my not so humble opinion the three books are great stories and if you like the world beneath the shattered moon, you'll surely enjoy seeing it through Chandi's eyes.
Here's a link to the first book, Chandi and the Moonstone. And the second, Chandi and the Pearl of Making. And the third and final, Chandi and the Black Diamond. Enjoy!

Living in the Netherlands means Learning Dutch

Since were in the Netherlands now, we need to know Dutch, so we're starting with at-home free learning services before entering a language school. Currently we're using Duolingo (which I highly recommend), but occasionally their mascot (the owl) seems just a wee bit sarcastic.... :)

Two cool little magic items from Arden Vul

I've always like the following two magic items from Arden Vul....

Theodorus’s Chair of Great Ease: This useful item takes the form of a miniature, overstuffed armchair. When the command word (‘sit’ in Archontean) is uttered, the chair grows to a full-size, comfortable leather chair. As a bonus, one can always find 2d6-1 gp under the cushion once per day. Experience Point Value: 1,000 G. P. Value: 5,000 Location: 3-66, 4-187.

Theodorus’s Bed of Convenient Respite: Another of Theorodus’s series of miniaturized useful items, this object typically appears as a 3”-long sleigh bed with comfortable bedclothes. When the command word is spoken (‘sleep’ in Archontean) it transforms into a full sized bed that is as comfortable as it looks. As a bonus, the sheets are always clean each time the bed is used. Experience Point Value: 500 G. P. Value: 2,500 Location: 2-69, 7-122.

Gone missing in Arden Vul?

I've just finished laying out Level 7 and am on to Level 8. We're currently at 520 pages and counting! Here's a preview of one of the Adventure Hooks - Rescue Operations!

Rescue Operation
Hook: someone has gone missing in Arden Vul, and it's up to the PCs to locate and rescue him/her/it! Will doing so bring a reward, a new party member, or merely a sense of satisfaction?
Source of the Hook: if a given prisoner is connected to an individual or institution that would pay for his/her/its release, that interested party is listed in the third column below. Otherwise, the GM should decide who the interested party might be.
Explanation: The following table includes a complete list of all prisoners/captives found within the Halls of Arden Vul, along with indications of where they are being held and who, if anyone, is interested in procuring their release. Some captives have built-in mini-quests associated with them. For example, Lillian the canon is the subject of her own hook (see above); the temple of Mitra will pay good money for her rescue. Similarly, High Priestess Stephania of the cult of Set would be interested in the return of Berenice, the Set deacon. For most prisoners, however, no interested party is given. Partly this is because these prisoners are NPC adventurers, unconnected to the factional politics of the Halls. Still, the GM could decide that the relatives or comrades of one of these NPCs has approached the the PCs and asked them to locate their missing family member/friend; such parties might provide a vague report of where the NPC was headed. So, for example, the GM might decide that Weothas, the now-lame former companion of Samantha the Red and Tresti Iredell, approaches the PCs and begs them to rescue his comrades. In such a case, Weothas could explain how his party had descended the Well of Light (2-1) to the 'secret halls of the Thoth priests' (Level 2), where they were beset by terrible, barking apes that overwhelmed their party. Last he saw, Samantha and Tresti were being dragged away by an enormous, four-armed ape! Such a hook provides PCs with a motive and general location for the captives found in 2-36B and 2-36C. Perhaps Samantha and/or Tresti are interested in joining forces with their rescuers?
Relevant Areas of Arden Vul: varies. See locations on the following table.
PC Levels: varies

Arden Vul Update

Lay out's happening with Arden Vul right now and I'm midway in Level 7 at about 490 pages. That means I've got Level 8-10, Sub-levels 1-15, and all the Appendices to get through before completion. Based on our times so far it's looking like a mid-year 2020 release. I know that's a few month later that previously expected, but hey, it's been 6 years already, so a few extra months won't kill us!

Three New Shattered Moon Novels.


Suzi's written three novels set in the world of the Shattered Moon! They're about the Church of Parkour and the trials and tribulations of one of their Sisters of the Stride, Chandi Chaudary. We just got the second cover and hope to have the series out in October, I believe.
