As is posted over at the Goodman Games site: "Castle Whiterock Preview #3 – Time for another PDF preview of Castle Whiterock! This preview is a chapter from the Kingdom of Morrain Gazetteer that is included as part of the Castle Whiterock boxed set."
Essentially, it's a free download of the first chapter of the gazetteer that details the kingdom in which the Whiterock monster dungeon is located. Harley Stroh asked me at GenCon last year if I'd be willing to flesh out the history, culture, and layout of Morrain, which is a cold, northern kingdom of his invention originally introduced in the Gazetteer of the Known Realms boxed set. I liked the idea of a small, rural medieval country in a colder part of the world and I had a blast inventing its lore and breaking a few stereotypes. This I did while starting The Darkwood Mask last fall. In the end, Harley filled in the gaps I left (doing an amazing job) and now the whole thing has been grouped into that monster boxed set.
So check out the preview! I'd love to know what you think. It should be noted that the cover art is the work of Jeremy Simmons, artist and cartographer.
