Loresmyth is an indie company based in the Netherlands producing supplements for tabletop roleplaying games.
You're on the road, maybe in a rush to save the world, or maybe heading home to visit grandma. The DM asks you to roll for random encounters. It's a 1! Oh no, critical boredom—you're about to be accosted by bandits again.
But what if instead, the forest to your left beckons. You enter and find an entire world to explore with new random encounters and fleshed out survival mechanics.
Announced June 15, 2020 on Twitch with an exciting trailer and generous raffles, Wondrous Expeditions: Forests is the first of a new line of books from Loresmyth seeking to revamp the way you journey through the world. Most of it is system agnostic, so you can use it to inspire games in Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or any other system of your choice. The first book will focus on creating all sorts of forests, from a haunted timberland to a fey wood, along with new monsters, plants, and encounters for each setting.
Should this book be successful—and considering Loresmyth has launched multiple product lines already, there's no reason to think otherwise—expect this scrappy company to chart a course through all manner of other biomes in the future. Have an idea for a type of environment you'd like to see get the Wondrous treatment? Let Loresmyth know! The company maintains a close relationship with its fans, with giveaways and a Discord channel where you can just chat, so feel free to give feedback on what products you'd like to see next.
