January 16, 2012: We Appeal To Your Sense Of Adventure (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=January&y=2012&d=16)

You demanded, and we listened! Since it burst upon the scene four years ago, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/) has been wildly popular in escorting adventurers back to its questing, killing, and looting roots. We&#39;ve had supplements detailing monsters (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0322), supernatural allies (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0309), clerics (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0311), artifacts (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0310), and more. However, despite all these goodies, we&#39;ve never released a full-fledged adventure.</p>

Until now.</p>

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1: Mirror of the Fire Demon (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0325) is a meaty mission for Dungeon Fantasy that will take heroes on a quest to track down an artifact of power (which may be cleverly hidden in the adventure&#39;s title). They need to hurry -- not just because the forces of darkness are gathering (although they are), but also because other adventurers are trying to track it down as well. And there&#39;s no telling what they&#39;d do with the treasure that&#39;s rightfully yours to steal!</p>

Written by Matt Riggsby (author of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 8: Treasure Tables (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0313) and GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 13: Loadouts (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0323)), this tale comes complete with the maps, mooks, and monsters you need to make it epic.</p>

Even better, it&#39;s been designed not only to be used, but reused. Random wilderness maps, various "henchthings," a dozen ready-to-use adventurers, and a bunch of new monsters means that you&#39;ll be able to keep running your own Mirror of the Fire Demon even after the heroes have emerged triumphant.</p>

The fans have been demanding an adventure since GURPS Dungeon Fantasy began, and we&#39;ve done everything in our power to help ensure that GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1: Mirror of the Fire Demon (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0325) is worth the wait . . . and hopefully the demand for this one will be so overwhelming that we&#39;ll be inspired in our quest to do more!</p>
