Coming for AS&SH—Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess

North Wind Adventures have released a few adventures for their game, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea, but most of them have been retreads from other magazines (Knockspell usually) and honestly, you can buy the magazine cheaper than you can buy the standalone adventure. But they have a new, original adventure coming:

Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess by Joseph Salvador. This adventure is set in the micro-setting called The Lemurian Remnant, an island at the rim of Hyperborea. The micro-setting is described by the author as so:

Eons ago, before Atlantis disappeared below the waves of Old Earth, the lost continent of Lemuria was itself subject to destruction and chaos. Volcanoes and earthquakes rent the land asunder and great storms swept across the continent creating impossible cyclones and whirlwinds. One of those vortices, caused by the North Wind, consumed part of Lemuria sweeping it away from the doomed continent and holding it in limbo until finally dispelling the remnant of the lost land into Hyperborea. Now, this Lemurian Remnant exists in a dimensional anomaly at the ultimate edge of Hyperborea, where the seas spill into the Black Gulf. Those wishing to reach Lemuria face the ceaseless windstorms which surround the archipelago and the deadly pull of the Rapids at the End of the World. Couple this with the Lemurian's isolationist mentality and consequently, the Lemurian Remnant continues to be a place of mystery to the varied peoples of Hyperborea._

In other news we've brought in Val Semeiks as the cover artist for _Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess
