|Ignotus Halloween Special
There are two upcoming products for October. The first is the "Ignotus Halloween Special," which features three
new, self-contained scenarios that can be played in one session-- perfect for Halloween! All the information you need
to play the scenarios is there; they can be used as an introduction to "Ignotus," even if you don't have the rulebook.
The first is based on a recent discovery under the streets of Paris-- a theater and restaurant carved out of the catacombs.
(The scenario may be set anywhere, though.) Who built the theater, and why did they do it? What do the symbols
painted on the ceiling and walls mean? Find out in "Cinema Veritas." The second scenario is a new look at
the Headless Horseman, followed by the discovery of the inhabitants of a haunted house. Who will survive "Sleepy Hollow
Revisited"? The third takes the characters on a train ride into a nightmare. After an attack on the train that
leaves most of the passengers dead or trapped, the characters enter an old farmhouse, where they discover the secret of the
former owner, and "The Chaos Engine."
The other release is due on Halloween, Sacred Wolf, Inc's two-year anniversary! It's "The Best of 2004," packed
with new rules and options for players and GMs! Over 70 pages of information, all of which is new and released under
the OGL! General rules and additions to general d20, fantasy, modern, and future campaigns! This accessory will
be a great addition to any d20 game!

Part 1, "The Hidden Temple" has just been released at RPGNow.com-- check it out. It's being described as a "classic dungeon crawl," but it's different than most. The description
at RPGNow.com says it all.
Part 2 continues the story. The cult has developed and matured somewhat from its introduction
in Part 1. It takes the characters into the outskirts of civilization, where they must confront the ancient religion
as it pulls the human populace in.
Parts 2 and 3 are currently in development. We've had a lot of positive responses to "The Hidden
Temple" (and the Iron Gauntlets RPG has been getting good reviews). It's not the typical dungeon crawl.
Garath 'Nok: City of Evil
Jacob Schwartz and Christopher Craft
the introduction) "This book details how to play in a setting that promotes evil.
To be the monster, instead of the hero, this is the place to make your start.
That said, this is not a book detailing how to use monster races. There
are already books about that. This book gives you a reason to play evil beyond
what you would normally expect.
"There are new races, new feats, new classes, new prestige
classes, new spells… well, you get the idea. There’s plenty of new game information packed into these pages to make it worth reading. But there’s more than that. There’s a new idea. This book is based on the idea that there is no reason why a party of evil characters
can not function well together and, in fact, better than a party of good characters.
why evil? Well, for one thing, evil is fun.
After all, this is a fantasy game, and if you played the good, law abiding citizens every time, how far is that removed
from your every day life (let’s hope not too far). This gives you a chance
to spread your creative wings and soar into new possibilities. Within these pages
is the basis for an entirely new city, one founded on the ideals of darkness."

'Nok goes beyond these. It sets up the basis for a different kind of campaign, where the PCs can play the monster
races from start to finish. It's also a sourcebook for creating a city of evil creatures to use in an existing campaign.
There are many ways to use this book, and incorporate the ideas into any d20 fantasy campaign.
