Some art while we work!

As we are working on the rules for the next version of the game (which will be made available free as a PDF by the way!) one of our fantastic illustrators Randy Linbourn sent us this clip of his artwork. Now the cover isn’t his, that’s by the amazing Dave, but the rest of the artwork is his.


And here’s the clip!

Reworking for the 15th

Posted: July 21st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

I started making this game back in 1991 and I have been steadily improving the basic core engine of the rules ever since.
Now, with the 14th incarnation of them, I feel the rules have reached what is essentially their peak.
And they are not good enough.
So what I am doing is starting again. Not from scratch, but close enough. I am ripping up the entire rulesystem and rebuilding it from the ground up, borrowing a pipe here and tile there from the older versions, but it is a very different construction with a very different focus this time around.
Looking forward to showing it off to you guys when it is done!

GothCon 2012

Posted: April 16th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

This year, the one before, we attended GothCon in Gothenburg and sold the game, the Wanderer’s Compendium, in Glorious Ashes and Through the Eyes of Madness to the people there.

The spread of wares for GothCon

Now we are moving into other projects, and the pace here will slow until we are ready to reveal the next set of ideas, the next step onto the Lost Roads.

The Long Winter

Posted: January 9th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

As we move into 2012 we are slowing work for a bit on the Lost Roads of Lociam. It has been a busy year and many more yet to come, so we are focusing on some reworking and testing of the next incarnation of the game. Most information will be posted as it becomes available.


For now, enjoy the game and the modules you can buy off either lulu or off DriveThruRPG.

Stockholm Spelkonvent 2011

Posted: September 20th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

So last fall we visited the Stockholm Gaming convention and sat in what amounts to be a cold airplane-hangar which is a bit out of the way. Last year the convention was really small, but this year the attendance had picked up a bit.

This year the convention sported a Mythos-theme, and we wrote up a Mythos-inspired scenario called “Through the Eyes of Madness” which was available at the convention for the very first time. It is hard to introduce such a big and complex setting as the Mythos into the Lost Roads of Lociam with just a small adventure, and it won’t be a lasting element in the world, but as a one-off it fun.
The module ties in with an upcoming article in the Swedish gaming magazine Fenix which will be coming out in the coming weeks. The article there is on “Lost Treasures” and one of these lost treasures is located in the dark vaults of this horrible cult which is found in the adventure we sold at the convention. The other treasures are linked into other adventures, so stay tuned.

20 years!

Posted: June 24th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

It was in the summer of 1991 that I started writing on a small fantasy-game called “Silent fighters”. This game, while never reaching completion and being utter crap, was the start of the project that slowly, over the years, matured into the Lost Roads of Lociam!

To celebrate 20 years of writing, good games and progress, Lost Roads of Lociam is rewarding its loyal fans and inviting new ones by giving away a lot of goodies!

First up is the (and this is going to sound strange) post-apocalyptic fantasy scenario “In glorious ashes”. This was written for LinCon 2011, which had a post-apocalyptic theme to it.

Enter the Forbidden Zone, the ruins of the greatest and first capital of Lociam’s human kingdoms. After is cataclysmic destruction over a thousand years ago it has been inhabited by the most dangerous creatures and subject to magical phenomenon that scorches the ground and sky.
Here are buried some of the most fantastic treasures on all of Lociam, so if you have the mettle and the courage, the trip might be just what you need.

The book contains a description and history of the Forbidden zone, along with random encounters and treasures for searching in the dangerous rubble. There is also a section on the monsters and bandits that roam the zone, and finally rules for randomly generating magical artifacts for use in your game.

You can get this absolutely FREE over at right now!


We have also set up a limited-time-only discount at so you can get the rulebook dirt-cheap! You will have to act now though, as the offer only lasts as long as the celebrations!


In continuation of our celebrations we are now adding Circles Disrupted as a FREE adventure over at! In this adventure for the Core Rulebook the characters meddle in the affairs of wizards and the stuff of nightmares. You can also get it through the Adventure-page here, if you don’t want to get it through DriveThruRPG.

The adventure not only contains the setting itself, but also material on the politics of magical circles and libraries, rules for magical rocks and crystals, and a new Sphere of Higher Magic; the Sphere of Nightmares!


There will be more gifts coming your way in the coming weeks, and as an added bonus the interactive sheet you can use to generate characters over at the Example-section of the page has been heavily updated to now include a LOT more operations to make your life easier.


And as the final (insane) act of these celebrations

Lost Roads of Lociam goes FREE!

You can now download the game for free over at, and get the rulebook, ready-made characters and a sample adventure for free, and just start playing right now!

Enjoy and thank you for these 20 years!

Lincon 2011

Posted: June 18th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

Again this year Lost Roads of Lociam travelled to the Linköping Gaming convention to be part of the fun. This year they had a post-apocalyptic theme and it inspired their entire place, the staff, everything. It was very neat.

Right in through the door of the main hall you came onto this notice-board in the form of a tire-tower, and here you could see out poster.

Ours is hte big one at the bottom, scroll down for a better picture.

For this convention we had written a special scenario, a post-apocalyptic adventure-setting called “In glorious ashes”. My sister made this wonderful poster for it too.

And in English it reads "Post-apocalyptic fantasy? Is there such a thing? Oh yes - in limited print. Specially written for Lincon."

Then there were directions to the room where we were set up. We shared the space with the great guys of Goblin Games.

Here we sold our games, handed out free stuff and talked to players and testers for a few days. Loads of fun.

The armband was part of the theme, all the organizers got them, had their signature unicorn on it, and of course, given the theme, it was wearing a gas-mask!

GothCon XXXV

Posted: April 24th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: News | No Comments »

I just came back from the 35th annual Gothenburg Gaming Convention, or GothCon as it is known.

Lost Roads of Lociam was represented at this event in the independent game-makers room, and below are a few pictures of how we were set up.

The event was a lot of fun, and thanks are owed not only to the other game-developers in the room, but also of course to the organizers and to Kenneth Hilte who was the guest of honour, who chatted briefly with everyone in the room, taking time out of what must have been a hectic weekend to get into the “indie-vibe”.

We had a great time at the convention and look forward to the next one!


This convention also saw the launch of the Wanderer’s Compendium Volume II which will be finding its way out into distribution near you shortly. Watch this space.
