Brazilian author/illustrator Alex Damaceno (@gnarledmonster) is back to bring you issue #2 of Beyond the Borderlands.
Palewood trees spread their scarlet foliage across the Bloody Ravine. A waterfall thunders nearby, and the air feels fresh and sweet. This place doesn't look as bad as expected....
Beyond the Borderlands Issue #2 contains 6 dungeons, a bestiary of 60 old school monsters and NPCs, heaps of treasure and thrilling dangers. The monsters here haven't caught humans invading their homes in quite a while, so adventurers will have an opportunity to engage socially with the various factions of the valley. However, if players come in brandishing weapons, a clever alert system makes it easy for the game master to ratchet up the tension around the valley in a meaningful way.
Everything you need to run a dungeon, from encounters to loot, to the general behavior of the inhabitants can be found on a single page spread. He even provides you with each dungeon's total population making it easy to handle payer's sneaky (or brash) plans.
The first 250 orders will also receive a bonus 5" x 7" sticker sheet of monsters and NPCs. All orders will receive a handy tracking sheet for all six of the dungeons, and a copy of Alex's mini-zine Dungeon Reavers, the system used for stats in Beyond the Borderlands.

BTB issue 2
Great art and writing, love the layout. I play this setting with my daughters they really like it.
Beyond the Borderlands #2
The second installment of the BtB series continued where the first left off - with chock-loads of material, tons of encounters, and copious amounts of cool art. Short adventures in several small locales make for great single-session runs that provide players with lots of choices to pick from. The monster and NPC art in the back is also fantastic, a great add-on! I look forward to #3!
Making the Borderlands Accessible
This series, only two books long at this point, is delightful. It has these vibrant isometric layouts of the keep and surrounding areas. The second one has a mini bestiary with each monster illustrated, NPCs, a few dungeons, and more. I'm looking forward to the compiled work, a color hardcover, perhaps with ribbons. If you've ever run or wanted to run Keep on the Borderland, this is a great resource.
