Kickstarting it Old-School at Gary Con

What a week! Gavin Norman (Necrotic Gnome founder) attended Gary Con and was honoured to present a panel called “Kickstarting it Old-School” with Ben Milton (Questing Beast) and Kelsey Dionne (The Arcane Library).

We’d like to thank everyone who attended. It was great to share our experiences on crowdfunding for old-school RPG products and hopefully spread some hard-earned wisdom to future creators! Ben will be sharing some insightful stats on the growth of old-school Kickstarters on his YouTube channel soon.

Dolmenwood Official Soundtrack Out Now!

We have a treat for Dolmenwood and dungeon synth fans this week with the public release of Beyond the Witching Ring, the official Dolmenwood soundtrack album by fantasy synth wizard Tales Under The Oak.

These ambient psychedelia-infused synth tracks will take you on an aural journey through gargantuan fungal colonies, the realm of the Nag-Lord, the depths of Lake Longmere, and other locales amidst the shadowy, fairy-haunted forests of Dolmenwood. Perfect for game session background music, adventure inspiration, or pure enjoyment! Beyond the Witching Ring is available for streaming and purchase in various formats on Bandcamp, along with Tales Under The Oak’s enchanting back catalogue.
