Shewstone Publishing Events at Gen Con 2018

Shewstone Publishing will be hosting three events at Gen Con 2018.

We'll host one seminar: Beyond Battles: Overlooked History for World-Builders (SEM18126818) and two "sneak preview" sessions of Magonomia™ : Queen Elizabeth's Astrologer is Missing! (RPG18132553 and RPG18126814).

We're greatly looking forward to meeting some fans and trying Magonomia with new gamers. And this trip won't be all work for us -- we'll be playing a fair few games ourselves over the weekend, and enjoying the warm hospitality of the city of Indianapolis, which genuinely seems to like getting invaded by a horde of 60,000 gamers every summer!

We hope to see you there!


Life in Elizabethan England: A Compendium of Common Knowledge

Note 2018-06-05: Eldritch Realms has been renamed to Magonomia

I found a lovely web site called Life in Elizabethan England: A Compendium of Common Knowledge 1558-1603, subtitled Elizabethan Commonplaces for Writers, Actors, and Re-Enactors. Just the thing for creating a sense of atmosphere in your Eldritch Realms games! Many thanks to the author, Maggie Pierce Secara, for sharing her work online. The site is also available as a book.
