Jon Hodgson

Our latest designer diary is available now, and introduces the ideas of religion in the BEOWULF setting:


One of the oldest recorded stories in Western Europe, Beowulf is an epic tale of hero against monster. And then the monster’s mother. And then a dragon.

BEOWULF is a setting and rules set for 5th Edition, designed primarily for duet play – one GM and one player.

BEOWULF presents a host of new and specially adapted rules to create epic and thematic adventures for your lone hero and his or her companions.

Explore mythic Migration Era Europe and beyond, solve mysteries, and do battle with dreadful monsters. With writing and rules design from hand-picked 5e and folklore geniuses, and with art from Jon Hodgson and friends, BEOWULF will be a thing of epic wonder.
