I've picked up 2 of these already, and they're lots of fun (Crown of Kins and Island of Lost Spells).

I am a partner in an ongoing effort to produce quality adventures in
the microquest style that can be played primarily with d6 RPGs, and
are directly compatible with The Fantasy Trip. We have picked up
the site address TheFantasyTrip.com recently to make it easier for
people to find us.
I found Melee at the local hobby store the summer of my senior year
in 1977 and have been hooked ever since. For a short time I did a
stint in the newly formed Steve Jackson Games right after graduating
from The University of Texas and remember the beginnings of The
Great Unknown Role Playing System, later renamed and then
I have been very busy with work and my efforts with Dark City Games
but I finally thought to poke around the Internet to see if there
was anything associated with microgrames and/or The Fantasy Trip and
lo and behold I have found this one!
We have been working very hard (as all three of us have full-time
jobs) to start this company and produce and sell illustrated
programmed adventures complete with map, pieces, and starter RPG
rules. I live in San Antonio, TX and handle mostly editing/writing
duties, our artist Dario is in Italy, and George (production,
business side) is in New York.
We are on the cusp of releasing our first two complete efforts. We
plan to have a majority of our sales through our sites, but may work
to have local sales in New York and San Antonio, TX initially
through the hobby stores as possible for more exposure if sales
We certainly would appreciate all who are interested to visit our
sites and purchase the just recently completed "Crown of Kings" and
upcoming "Island of Lost Spells" and let us know what you think.
We have several submissions we are working on, and I am personally
writing "Last Orders of the King" which should be a solidly large
and challenging adventure with four beautiful maps and an
interesting game mechanism that enhances play.
It is our goal to be The Source for new programmed adventures to
help revive the TFT style gaming format (or for use with GURPS,
etc.) for both grognards and new, younger players and even more
difficult than writing, illustrating, playtesting, and editing is
getting the word out about our efforts! :)
It is recreating the joy that we have experienced over the years
with this beautiful game system that helps motivate us to work late
into the night!
So please send me or George an email if you have any thoughts or
questions about Dark City Games, and please introduce us to your
gaming groups and other adventure gamers that you know.
Good gaming! :)
