Rite Publishing has launched a new project today – the Ruins Perilous. The setting for the project is a series of ruins used as a testing ground for the Questors’ Society. It’s loosely based in the sandbox setting of Questhaven, but can easily be dropped into any campaign. The twist on this project is that it’s a ransom project. People chip in money, and when the threshold is met, the room is released with a map, creatures, traps and treasure. Donations of more than $3 will net extra goodies – the high res jpg for the room, a side view illustration, a detailed top down token and more.

Here’s a low res sample of the first room to whet you’re appetite:

The project is written by Jonathan McAnulty and T.H. Gulliver, the tokens are illustrated by James ‘DevinNight’ Hazelett, and I’m doing the art and cartography (including the shiny banner at the top). You can find an introduction to the setting and the Questors’ Society on the Rite pages and on the site for the Ruins Perilous.
