Tales of the Lost Isles: This book of fiction collects all-new stories set in the Ghost Archipelago.A few, drawn by the blood of their ancestors, search for the fabled Crystal Pool, whose waters grant abilities far beyond those of normal men. It is only the bravest, however, who venture into the islands, for they are filled with numerous deadly threats.

Rommel is a tabletop game of great battles in the European and Mediterranean theatres of the Second World War.
The player takes the role of a general commanding an entire division, or elements of several divisions, or an entire corps or even an army. Units represent companies and battalions. Tens of thousands of men and machines clash for control of miles of territory. Make decisions about the application of air power, engineering, the use of reconnaissance, the commitment of mobile reserves, and many other things.
Rommel
 can be played with miniature figures and terrain -OR- with “unit cards” on any flat surface. You may in fact use both in the same game, since the cards can act as labels and play-aids for your bases of miniatures.
The basic game introduces players to the operational decisions of a second world war general. Two players can complete a game in 2-3 hours. The full advanced game features:
Large battles and multi-player games.
A complete army and battlefield creation system for fictional scenarios, including thirteen army lists for six major powers.
Guidelines for players who want to create their own historical scenarios from famous battles.
Detailed rules for things like amphibious and airborne operations, cavalry, minefields, pioneer and special assault units, and much more.

revised rulebook
By Fire and Sword – a historical wargame is the name of a battle system developed by the Wargamer Company. We wanted to create a realistic, playable and dynamic wargame which recreates the 17th century wars fought by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth against Turkey, Muscovy, Sweden, Crimean Khanate and Cossacks. The period between 1640 and 1676, on which the game focuses, is a time of almost constant warfare waged by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on all fronts, in many cases with several enemies at the same time. Supplements planned for the game will be dedicated to specific wars and campaigns in which the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth took part during the entire 17th century.
The By Fire and Sword wargame is a comprehensive system including game rules, historical background for the forces of all the combatants, battle group creation rules and scenarios, but most of all a huge number of wargaming figures representing all the military formations of the warring parties.

1865, the Southern States are in a desperate place. As the war drags on the forces of the Confederacy have turned to the dark arts. Armed with this power Captain Quantrell has assembled an army of the undead. With crazed Bloody Bill at his side the South may yet rise again.

Fort Purgatory controls the safe crossing on the Cahulawasse River that separates South Carolina from Georgia. Garrisoned by men of the 13th Infantry Regiment (Mattersons Sharpshooters). Accompanied by Captain Ross and Sergeant Odell.
