Molten Sulfur’s Next Kickstarter Begins May 7th!

I’m enormously excited to announce that the Kickstarter for Molten Sulfur’s next book, Making History: Three One-Session RPGs, will go live on May 7th! Want an email when it happens? Click this link and hit 'send'!

Making History contains three one-session RPGs, each with a full adventure, a simple rules set, and pregenerated characters. These games are:

  • Norse Ivory. 994 A.D. French descendants of Viking invaders must return to the frozen land of their pagan ancestors. Expect no joyous homecoming. A game about heritage and faith.

  • A Killing in Cahokia. 1100 A.D. Detectives in the real medieval Native American temple-city of Cahokia investigate an unusual murder and get tangled up in something far larger.

  • Darken Ship. Modern day. Sailors aboard a U.S. warship awake to find they’re alone on a vessel that should carry 3,000. Explore the dimly-lit passageways, try to survive, and don’t give up the ship!

Each adventure is a single-session, standalone story grounded in the real world. The rules are super simple and keep the focus on the heart of the scenario. The pregenerated characters are complicated people with motivations that keep the story moving organically. Each game takes 3-4 hours to play and only an hour or two to prepare!

We’ve also got some very cool stretch goals lined up: supplementary material for the games, and maybe even a few additional games!

So mark your calendars for May 7th and get excited!


Everyone needs content for their RPG campaigns: adventure hooks, puzzles, NPCs, political machinations, combat encounters, and adventure sites. That’s what this site provides! I draw RPG content from real-life fact and folklore, then give advice on how to adapt it to your fictional campaign. I believe content that is grounded in reality (however fantastical) is richer and more vibrant, and your players will appreciate the difference.


Updates Tuesdays.
