The great Spider Queen lies dead at the border of the human lands, laid low by the order of your mother, Queen Alyria. Now, fearing for your life in the ensuing turmoil, you have fled the palace at Bastow, seeking the relative safety of anonymity on the open road. What secrets will you uncover as you explore the continent you’ve never seen? What creatures will you meet, and how will your fates intertwine, for good or for ill?
In the Hollow of the Spider Queen is a rules-light roleplaying game of gritty fantasy in a complex world where magic is slowly slipping away. Although designed for one player and one game master, adapting it to a typical group of 3-5 players is quite simple. Filled with copious encounter tables, NPCs, and maps that evoke a world of cultural and moral complexity, this book can easily be mined for your favorite old-school dungeon crawl or sandbox adventure.
