Skirmisher Releases Kos Island (Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting)

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing is proud to announce the release of Kos Island, the third volume of the highly-anticipated Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting! This 36-page book was written by authors Michael O. Varhola and Brendan Cass and contains illustrations by fantasy artist Amanda Kahl and maps by cartographer William T. Thrasher. We very much hope you will enjoy Kos Island and say positive things about it on the sites to which you contribute!

Kos Island is available for $2.99 as a PDF download through online venues that include DriveThruRPGRPGNow, and WargameVault

This book contains detailed descriptions of the island of Kos, what lies around it, its 12 major towns and villages, and 10 specific places located on the island or smaller islets in the waters surrounding it. All of these elements can be used either individually or in conjunction with one another, and within the context of the Kos campaign setting or as part of any other campaign setting a storyteller might be using for their own games or stories. It also includes a fully-keyed map of the region, both in the book and as a separate 11 x 17 file that can be printed out on a single sheet of paper.

Kos Island follows Kos City and Lands Beyond Kos and is fully compatible with and expands upon concepts that appear in them.

The Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting has deliberately been designed to be system free, not tied to any particular game setting, and to be compatible with any set of role-playing game rules suitable for ancient, medieval, or fantasy venues. In that the setting was used as the playtest backdrop for games using the OGL/d20, Pathfinder, “Basic” Dungeons & Dragons and Labyrinth Lord retroclone, and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules, of course, it is an especially ideal setting for them.
