Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing is excited to announce the release of “The Misadventures of Bjoric,” a short story by game developer Brendan Cass! It is available by itself for $1.99 at DriveThruFictionDriveThruRPG, and RPGNow and in two affiliated bundles, a Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting Bundle (70% off) and a Swords of Kos Universal Bundle (69% off). 


“The Misadventures of Bjoric” is the tale of two down-on-their-luck Germanic war orphans who emigrated to the Aegean as children. Bjoric and his brother Frantz have only ever wanted to make a simple life for themselves on the island of Kos, but fate always seemed to work against them. Now, after a failed attempt at living the life of an adventurer, Bjoric finds himself in jail with no options, and his brother is lost and maybe even dead. 


“The Misadventures of Bjoric” takes place in the Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting, a swords-and-sorcery milieu set in a Dark Ages fantasy version of the Mediterranean and the lands surrounding it. A century after a Great Cataclysm destroyed the old world, plunged it into chaos, and reawakened magic and all form of ancient races and monsters, the agents of Gods and Titans struggle against each other, nations strive to survive or dominate one another, and adventurers descend into the ruins in search of wealth and lost technology.
