Chewer of Fingers is a grim old-school introductory adventure intended for The Midderlands setting. The adventure is written for Swords & Wizardry (Free pdf here) and therefore can be used in all retro-clones and old school role-playing games with little or no work. The book contains swear words and mature themes.

The encounters in the adventure take place in and around the small hamlet of Fetterstone—a depressing place on the edge of a stinking marsh near the border between the Western Midderlands and Staffershire.The PCs are heading to Fetterstone because there is a 20 gold quid reward for the capture of an escaped criminal called ‘The Finger Chewer’. He absconded from Middlemoor Gaol five days ago and is believed to be hiding out in the surrounding oft-foggy marsh. The marsh is notoriously dangerous and even the lure of 20 gold quids isn’t enough to entice the locals into its fetid clutches.

  • The adventure is A5-sized (148mm wide x 210mm high OR Approx. 5.8″ wide x 8.3″ high) containing 24 interior pages.
  • The adventure features 4 encounter areas: Old Lady Harris’ Farm, The Village of Fetterstone and the Gloombug Tavern, Middlemoor Gaol, and The Marsh.
  • Four pregenerated adventurers are provided: Solomon Pilkington (Level 2 Human Cleric of Gael), Dergal Pock (Level 2 Wart Goblin Fighter), Norris Hitchcock (Level 2 Half-elf magic-User), and Elspeth Fallows (Level 2 Human Thief).
  • 6 beautiful hand-drawn and scanned maps. These will also be provided as separate unlabelled VTT versions with the PDF download.

This will be a Kickstarter Special Edition version (limited to 500 copies). Any later printings (post-Kickstarter) will feature a different cover, cost a bit more, and be unsigned.

Here are some 3D mock-ups (unedited and not final) showing what the print-version should look like.

  • The adventure is A5-sized (148mm wide x 210mm high OR Approx. 5.8″ wide x 8.3″ high) containing 24 interior pages.
  • The PDF version will be an A5, 24-page bookmarked PDF.
  • The Softcover PRINT version will be a stapled A5, 24-pages of 130gsm silk paper, with a full colour/ matt laminated cover with the green text and logo in spot UV.
  • This Softcover PRINT version of the book will be signed by Glynn Seal.

We have the following stretch goals…

  • £5,000 – I’ll add additional appendix information for making the adventure more useful taking the interior page count from 24 pages to 28 pages.
  • £6,000 – I’ll provide the pregenerated characters as four separate 250gsm sheets with blank rear, printed on uncoated paper for ease of writing upon. They will also still appear in the book itself too.
  • £7,500 – I’ll provide a separate 250gsm sheet with relevant game handout to both sides (one will be a list of old by-laws, the other is TBC).
  • £10,000 – I’ll upgrade the interior of the book to full colour with subtly textured background, colour art, and colour maps. This will only be available for the Kickstarter Special Edition version.

That’s it for now! Thanks for looking, Glynn
