Spellcaster: The Frostgrave Magazine

Coming next Friday, June 30

For anyone who can’t get enough Frostgrave, I’ve got an exciting announcement. Next Friday, June 30, I will be releasing the first issue of Spellcaster: The Frostgrave Magazine

This is a PDF-only magazine, mostly written and assembled by myself. While I have the blessing of Osprey Games, this is a purely independent project. It’s a chance for me to write rules and other game material that either don’t really fit the game world or just don’t mesh well with any of the major releases. It does also mean the internal layout is done by myself, so don't expect anything amazing there!

So what is in this inaugural issue?

* Rules for using black powder firearms
* Rules for horses in the Frozen City
* Rules for Knightly Orders which add variety to your knights and templars
* Alone in the Crypt – a solo Frostgrave scenario in which you play a captain with a quiver-full of magic arrows trying to escape a crypt full of undead
* The Catacombs of the Evrenbright – a three scenario mini-campaign originally created for Adepticon 2017

Also, as you can see, I’ve managed to convince Frostgrave veteran, Dmitry Burmak to help out with cover art!

This issue of Spellcaster will consist of 18 pages, have a cover price of $5, and will initially be available through RPG Now and Wargames Vault, with Amazon hopefully following soon as well. If none of these work for you, feel free to contact me, and I’m sure we can work something out.

HT Publishers will also be producing a Spanish edition of the magazine which will be available on the same day.

  8. Black Powder firearms!? Now that's interesting news!

    I was SUPER stoked about Ghost Archipelago when you first announced it - because I have PILES of pirate figures (and a few half-built ships just needing and excuse like Ghost Archipelago to get finished)... and then I realized 90+% of my pirates are armed with some sort of firearm - mostly pistols.... and the excitement faded just a little as I worried that the setting would be in the same technological period as Frostgrave - i.e. medieval - and there likely wouldn't be firearms (Oh, I was still planning to buy it and play it, but I wasn't AS super stoked). I know, some people have used firearms and basically treated them as crossbows... but I feel like they're out of place when everyone else is using medieval miniatures.

    Will there be rules for firearms in Ghost Archipelago itself?

    1. The rules presented in Spellcaster cover both Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago, there is only one, minor, difference between the two.

  10. Wow! This is very cool news.

    I'm interested to see your take on black power weapons. I've been a bit anti them entering the game so far, but it will good to see how you interpret them.

    Horses are a welcome addition. Knightly Orders sounds like a great little extra. And who wouldn't want more scernarios and campaign material.

    If this is a way for you to monetise all those little rules ideas you come up with, I think it's very smart. (But then, that's what I've come to expect from you 😉).

  14. Excited for this! Solo scenario! Thank you!

  15. I eagerly await an opportunity to support this. I think what you are doing here is so clever!

    I think additional solo rules content will be a major hit for you. I love Dark Alchemy so much!

  16. Cool but 5 USD for 18 pages is a bit steep. On the other hand its Frostgrave specific, so will need to see...

    1. I don't think cheaper would be worth his time, he's busy with other things I'm sure. It's not the page count you are paying for, but quality content.

  17. Everyone will have to decide for themselves is what I'm offering is worth the price. It certainly isn't going to have the design or graphic quality of the Osprey Publications. On the other hand, word-count wise, it is about half of the length of one of the Osprey supplements for half the price.

  18. Sounds like a cool little project. I'm always up for more Frostgrave.

  19. Hello Joe, this is an instand buy for me. I was wondering of the 3 scenario campagne is designed for 2 players or are those scenario's multiplayer games.

    I'm planning a frostgrave weekend in two weeks and it would save me a lot of time :D

    Cheers and keep up the good work.

    1. Thanks for the support, Daan. The scenarios were originally designed with two-players in mind - that said, they should work for multiple players will very minimal modification.

I came across posts of how spell casters help with lottery wins and i decided to give it a try but still no luck until a friend gave me the email address of Dr Zadson just 6 months back after i contacted him i was given some instructions and i adhered to them and in the last 5 months i had won over $7,000,000.00 in all on several occasions and this was too wonderful a miracle to be quite about and i decided to tell the world of this great ambassador.

  31. My name is Christiaan Avenant from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster, once when i went to Africa on a business summit. I meant a woman who’s name is Mamaijuboafrica (mamaijuboafricaspell@gmail.com) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told (Mamaijuboafrica) what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is(mamaijuboafricaspell@gmail.com call +27749582344 or whatsapp number +27629443297)
