This idea needed something to bind this logic into something that felt like a tighter story and adventure suited to a board game session. Thus was born The Runed Keg Inn. This special dwarven wayhouse is built in the midst of a long abandoned and ruined dwarven lands that are now inhabited by all manner of friendly and definitely not friendly creatures. One of the cool things is that the dwarven ales are extremely resistant to the ravages of time, indeed the runes scorched into the barrels imbue the content with more power as time passes. So beneath their feet and occasionally hidden in an above-ground ruin are the left behind riches of these dwarven lords - beer.
I will post more on the idea as we put some flesh on some interesting bones. Plus there is another game in the design stage that I will post about soon that will see some real progress by the time I post.
