Keck Publishing announces the coming release of Side Trek Scenarios, mini-adventures or encounters that can be thrown in with published One Shot Adventures! Each Side Trek is designed to work with, or independently of, its parent One Shot. Side Treks are intended to enrich the setting of each One Shot Adventure with additional information about areas mentioned but not covered in detail.

The first Side Trek Scenario is titled The Goblins of Blood Wood, a mini-romp into a goblin lair within the Blood Wood Forest of the Days of Knights One Shot Adventure. The characters can clear out the lair, in hopes of making the forest safer for everyone who travels its trails, or simply seek out whatever treasures that may lie hidden within the dank, dark tunnels below Blood Wood. This Side Trek also introduces a new skill, Miracle Working, and several Miracles for a character with the skill to use. Also included are several new creatures that are native to Blood Wood.

The Goblins of Blood Wood will be available for download soon from DriveThruRPG and RPGNow for a low price of $4.00. Keep watching here for the latest announcements!

The second installment of our One Shot Adventures line of scenarios will be up for sale very soon at DriveThruRPG and RPGNow. This scenario is a Sci-Fi adventure set in the distant future in a galaxy not unlike our own. The characters are members of a crew of the independent freighter Easy Money. Hired to deliver an expensive cargo to a mining colony, they are knocked out of hyperspace right into the middle of a planetary siege in an uncharted star system. Things heat up as their ship takes some heavy damage that forces them to land on the beleaguered planet for repairs, only to be coerced into assisting the alien populace in saving their world.

Like all One Shot Adventures, Supernova offers ten pre-generated character templates for players to choose from. The lite rules system is simple, and easy to learn, and teach to new players. You can use Supernova to teach new players about role playing, or as a quick and simple adventure for your regular players when you are between campaigns, or when some of them can’t make it for game night, and you don’t want to leave their characters behind.

Supernova will hopefully be available for download before Christmas, so keep an eye out for future announcements here!!!

Welcome to Keck Publishing’s new front portal! My old website was looking a bit drab to me, so I decided to spice things up a bit. I wanted to make things a bit easier to find and snazzier to look at. Hope you like it!
