|October 11, 2014 - While we're gearing up for Carnage and PentaCon, we've also been busy working on a new gothic horror supplement for Crawlspace. Tonight we're taking a break to play some Icons, though. Hey, our games are great, but sometimes it's more fun to play something you didn't design.
August 22, 2014 - Back from a particularly amazing (people keep telling me it's not cool to say "awesome" unless you mean it in the old timey sense) Gen Con and the blogs are already starting to pop up. Click on the white box off to the right to see the awesome (That's right, I said it! Whatcha gonna do about it?) stuff we've got in store for Carnage.
August 2, 2014 - There's a prototype version of Tom's post-apocalyptic Glow RPG up for sale as a PDF, but mostly we're just getting ready for Gen Con. Come find us in the Studio 2 block at Booth #1317.
June 25, 2014 -
Wondering when there's going to be a Qalidar book that you can actually
take off and run your own campaign with? Here it is: Qalidar: Resistance - Basic. Also, Snow is now available in print and there's some talk of Tom's post-apocalyptic Glow RPG being finished soon, too. We'll see.
June 2, 2014 - Going to be In the central Florida area next weekend? Come visit Tom at Salty Bay Con! And, of course the Summer of Cosmic Horror continues in a different hue with Cave of the People-Eater by Douglas Mitten. Be on the lookout for something new from Qalidar late this week or early next week as well!
May 28, 2014 - The Summer of Cosmic Horror continues in a different shade with Cave of the People-Eater by Douglas Mitten. We're also gearing up for Cleveland Concoction this weekend.
May 19, 2014 - Little known fact: According to Professor Kopfy, Tunnels & Trolls got the H.P. Lovecraft bug a couple of years before the Call of Cthulhu game was published. "Mad" Roy Cram continues the tradition in The Foggy Island Horror, available now on DriveThruRPG and its affiliates. And hey, don't forget to sign up for your Gen Con events!
March 28, 2014 - Keeping the Swamp of Doom
from going over to the dark side has never been easy. The crocodile
folk and the demons aren't helping. Check out our latest Peakvale
March 10, 2014 - The Qalidar Quick Start is here! Try out Qalidar: Resistance and pay whatever you feel like paying. Also, we've got the Gen Con 2014 events for Peryton Gamers posted.
February 24, 2014 - Back from BASHCon! Had fun hooking up with old friends, meeting new ones, and playing some great sessions of Crawlspace Deluxe, Glow, Tunnels & Trolls, Qalidar, and AD&D. We've gathered a few blogs about it if you'd like to hear more.
February 4, 2014 - Crawlspace is now Crawlspace Deluxe! We've made a few minor rules changes, added a free adventure, and slapped a brand new cover on it. Check it out now either in print from Amazon or PDF from DriveThruRPG.
November 22, 2013 - We hope you like your Thanksgiving tabletop full of dark meat. Turkey Day is an R-rated Crawlspace and it's not your ordinary slasher flick!
November 8, 2013 - Missing Carnage doesn't mean we're not gaming! Fresh from the playtesting pits, here's Party Nights, the first published scenario for Crawlspace 13.
October 25, 2013 - Just
in time for your late night Halloween RPG session, we've got Scott
Malthouse's mystery horror scenario for Tunnels & Trolls, Death at Grimwood Hall. It's a romance worthy of Hammer horror, complete with British spelling. Don't shamble into Peakvale without it!
August 21, 2013 - Gen Con rocked! We'll have some blogs up soon, but in short, we had a lot of fun gaming, saw a bunch of old friends, and met lots of cool new people. Qalidar: Resistance and Crawlspace 13 both got a wonderful reception. Now it's time to polish off a few more books and get ready for Carnage.
June 30, 2013 - People
are always telling us how tacky Tom is, which gave him an idea.
Throwing together some playing cards, some classic horror movies,
and some stuff he found under the floorboards, he came up with Tom's Action Card Kit, TACK for short, and built a whole new Crawlspace addition with it. Live the life of a B-movie actor stuck in the genre, a world you never created!
June 1, 2013 - Back from a very successful Dark Gathering. Tom and Robin both have pictures and stories to tell about that. Also, Roy Cram has given us another great Tunnels & Trolls adventure for New Khazan! This time it's a GM adventure full of fun... or... something that sounds like "fun." Whatever! It's called Baloonka: Rescue From the Fungus Planet.
May 1, 2013 - It's Beltane, and Tom is about ready to send TROTT Crawlspace down to the editing pits. On top of that, he's already hacking away at the new improved TROTT version of SPACERS. Christina has shelved the fiction project and, along with some very talented artists, is hard at work making Qalidar: Resistance every bit as awesome as it deserves to be. This Gen Con is going to be the best yet! Check out the Peryton Gamers Events page to keep track of our schedules.
February 18, 2013 - BASHCon was amazing.
already has some
thoughts posted about the evolution of the Ragnarok event.
to follow shortly!
January 26, 2013 - Hey,
web page update! Hopefully things will be easier to find this way than
they were in our old "sea of books" format. If this doesn't turn out to
be any better, we might try to fix it in another five years or so.
October 21, 2012 - Ready

Tunnels is here! Buy it now before it's too late!
September 24, 2012 - While
Robin's been hard at work daydreaming about how awesome her stuff is
going to be, Tom got a team together and cranked out a brand new solo
for his New Khazan
T&T setting. Written by the infamous Roy Cram, edited by M.E.
Volmar, and illustrated by Jeff Freels, When
Good Games Go Bad is about as far
from a game gone bad as you can get.
July 27, 2012 - For
Gen Con this year, we've upgraded New
with another round of professional edits, new art, and a bit of layout
tweaking. The print version will be ready in a few days, but you can
pick up the PDF
right now (or, if you already bought it, just check your account to
download the latest version). On top of that, we've re-tooled Qalidar to fit in with the
upcoming line of Qalidar-related products, converted it to the Peryton RPG rules, and
thrown in an introductory adventure to get you started in the Storm.
May 20, 2012 -
Just in time for summer, Peryton Publishing brings you... wait, what? Snow?
Um, I think I've got the wrong press release here. But hey, just in
case it's true, check out this new
adventure for only a buck, compatible with Peryton RPG, Labyrinth Lord,
Basic Fantasy, and Tunnels
& Trolls. Mmm, nice and cool.

you write up an approved article with scenarios or additions to the 9,000 Worlds, you get to join

This means you get free PDF copies of The Quest For TrollStar
episodes as they come out. The nefarious Roy Cram is the first member of

written for Tunnels & Trolls 7.5, but easily adaptable to other
versions. Don't talk to the frog.
February 2, 2012 - Happy
Groundhog day! Yeah, we don't care, either. What we do care about is
that we're going to have our own space in the exhibit hall at this
year's Gen Con!
Stay tuned for details on where it'll be, but if you remember to look
for Studio 2,
you'll find us nearby. Also, while we were operating on radio silence,
we, along with a certain delver of trollish extraction,
came out with It Came from Beyond the Stars!,
a Lovecraft-flavored GM adventure for Tunnels & Trolls.

by Katje Romanov.
August 20, 2011 -
Back from another Gen Con. Check with Tom
for all the good stuff about that. And, well, you probably won't be
interested in this. I mean, it's hardly worth mentioning, but there is
a new issue of Elder
out now. Don't get excited or anything. It's only bigger than
ever, packed with GM adventures and even a solo. No big deal.
July 7, 2011 -
The guy who did those awesome drawings in Elder

May 16, 2011 -
may look quiet here, but that's only because we're too busy cackling
over our own schemes to stick our heads up and say hello. We've got the
"exotic locations" issue of Elder
Tunnels in development for one thing, and a whole line of
books for the Peryton Fantasy RPG
is almost ready to start shambling into the daylight. There have been rumors
of a Troll
Hoot, but our lawyers have advised us not to comment on the
matter at this time.
April 2, 2011 -
Well, we've already sold out of yesterday's Adult Adventures Series, but

low-cost but awesome supplements in PDF, and, believe it or not, we're
finally going to get Loar
out. On top of all that, we're going to launch a whole new
flavor of TAG, and we're
going to put New
Khazan on store shelves. And that's not even
touching our convention plans. Wait till you see what we're
cooking up for Gen Con!

Ken St. Andre's infamous Cowboys

be played with the TAG WHAP!

December 15, 2008
- Submissions have closed for POW!erful
and we're busy putting the book together. We're not really
intersted in looking at stories for our other upcoming collections just

The first Christina
Lea episode of Voidfarers
is now available in the "free
novel" section. Qalidar may be pushed back to November
because the cover artist's
computer crashed. He's darn good, though, so really, it'll be worth the
wait. In the meantime, don't forget to take a look at WHAP!,
featuring new writer Michael Larsen (who is big into something he calls
Rock'n Role-Playing), new editor Lad Hannes, and that same old Tom K.
Loney guy you're already tired of.

Con on the Cob is over, and now... WHAP!

your mailbox for only $8.99. Get your

August 29, 2008 - Kind
of coming out of nowhere this month (well October really) is
our new Saga, Wildly
Heroic Action Pulp: WHAP! for TAG.
Our "staff writer," Mike Larsen has been the major push behind the
scenarios you'll be reading, even if he just doesn't talk about it a
whole lot. Really, he just drops about six adventures within six weeks,
and we were looking for some new stuff to present at Con on the Cob.
It's Peryton's turn at our Voidfarers
story. Let's wish her luck... as soon as she's done with Qalidar...
and Peryton RPG... and Loar. Qalidar, at least,
will all polished up with a special limited signed and
numbered edition at Con
on the Cob. Con on the Cob will be the only
place you can buy this early edition. The standard edition will be
available for purchase for everyone else a couple of weeks later. The
sequel to Troll
Tunnels already has submissions,
and POW!erful Tales
is filling up as fast as MC Lea can sort through the submissions.
August 9, 2008 - Between
Buffalo Con and the upcoming
GenCon this month, things have been a little tight here, but at last
second chapter of Voidfarers
is ready for viewing! Speaking of
fiction, we need submissions
for fiction! Some
of us are already working on the sequel to Troll
Trouble, we're thinking of calling it. Robin is
busy plugging away at her Peryton
RPG revision and Qalidar,
while Tom, aka Kopfy, aka the Laggy, is mostly just keeping
up with the scenarios he's lined up for the conventions. Fear not he's
still getting things done!
Also, TAG has been getting a lot of interest these days, so here are
some spiffy character
for SPACERS and RuinCrawl. There's even one for the WHAP! play-test
sessions we've been having. It's taken us three years, but hey, you
know, we were, like, busy or something.
July 1, 2008 - We've
got two long-promised Peryton
creations ready to poke their horns
into the light this Autumn, and one brand new one. First is Loar:
Lair of the Minotaur, a mid-level
adventure for the Peryton
Fantasy RolePlaying Game. Also ready to thaw out from a long
hibernation is Qalidar,
Lost City of the Perytons. Qalidar will be our
first product under Green Ronin's True20
license. Finally, we're putting together a revised and
edition of Peryton RPG. Don't worry - this version and all its
supplements will be fully compatible with the current one because it
is, in fact, the same game. It's just rearranged to help make it even
more improvisation-friendly and to add some new goodies. All three
products are due for release this October, although Loar and the PRPG
revision may sneak out earlier. Oh, and Troll Tunnels just keeps on

Voidfarers, Chapter 1

Origins, the Flying Buffalo Convention, GenCon, and our
favorite, Con on the Cob,
May 31, 2008

Tunnel fame) first appearance with the on-line release of the

Régis Moulun, Mike Hartlieb, and Diego Gisbert Llorens. As
Trollgod himself (Ken St. Andre) says, "you should buy a copy"!

January 7, 2008 - Not
only is there a brand new Troll
on the horizon (early April) with some great events and a spiffy
poster, but we're
going to have some special stuff ready to show off when we get there.
This includes the long-delayed Loar:
Lair of the Minotaur
module for Peryton RPG (with the infamous owlbear dilemma that
we so love to spring on unsuspecting convention players) and possibly
even the Troll Tunnels
short story collection!
December 31, 2007 - On
the edge of a new year, we just wanted to share a few
words borrowed from the Doctor. "It's all waiting out
there. Everything's brand new to me: all those planets, creatures, and
horizons. I haven't seen them yet - not with these eyes. And it is
gonna be fantastic."
December 9, 2007 - With the
New Year fast approaching,
like to thank Si, Ziggy, Armbruster, Monk, Pneumonica, Regis, Diego,
Mandy B., Caed, DCRaygun, de Castro, and MCLEA (with a special tip of
the non-existent hat to Stony for helping out with certain secret
projects) for all their help in
making Peryton Publishing a quality joint - online, in print, and in
person. And we'd like to thank all of the new customers and
contributors that are helping to make 2008 look like a fairly fun and
successful year. Just in time for Christmas, Kopfy's Caverns
is here! The second annual Troll
Hoot is in the
is on its way, with great art accompanying our humble TAG rules. The Peryton RPG is
gathering material for a serious release of some scenarios. Last but
not least, our fiction release Troll
Tunnels is well underway.
November 16, 2007 - Back from Con
on the Cob, but we'll be traveling again soon for
Thanksgiving, then putting stuff together for Troll
This means we are interested in submissions if you've got a sword
sorcery tale you'd like to share. Check the "contact" page for
information on rates.
October 23, 2007 -
It's not ready for sale yet (we're sill playtesting) but Simon
Tranter's cover for the upcoming POW! (Powers Out
World) game so totally rocks that we've got to show it to you anyway.
We'll be playtesting "What Price Liberty" at Con on the Cob this year
so stop by and see us if you'd like a closer look. Like all TAG
adventures, this one will include all the rules you need to run not
only the adventure itself, but a full campaign of your own.
We're running three events at Con
on the Cob
this year: Powers Out of this World (the aforementioned TAG
superhero game), The Dark
Cave (Peryton RPG), and Return to Sihlt-Awash (TAG fantasy).

Peryton RPG but not sure you want to buy the whole

complete with sample adventure, all the new classes, and the full
details on knacks, magic item creation, and the Peryton advancement
system, for less than a dollar. You can get to Peryton Lite from the

Having braved the fires of Gen Con and been re-forged, our latest
FreeFall adventure, Rocket-Men vs the Saucers II:
The Straits of Sub-Light, is now being
distributed to the masses for a mere $7.99. Like all TAG
adventures, Straits of
Sublight has all the rules you need to play right in the
book, so call your friends, get out your rayguns, and see if you can
save the Icarus X-1 before it disappears from our universe forever!
August 25, 2007 - Back from Gen
Con. Read Kopfy's
for more on that adventure. Soon we'll be releasing the commercial
version of the FreeFall, Rocket-Men vs the Saucers II: The Straits of
Sublight. Also, due to better-than-expected sales, we're lowering the
price of Imp Hollow and
future publications of the same size to $7.99!
August 07, 2007 -
We've just put together a special treat for a lucky few among those of
you who find us at Gen Con (Indy) this year - a slick printed version
of Rocket-Men vs the Saucers II: The
Straits of Sublight
with a cover by Simon Lee Tranter and interior art by Régis
Moulun! Sure, the regular edition will be for sale here later, but
you'll only have one chance to snag one that says "Gen Con 07" on it.
Unless you write it on there yourself, of course. But that's just
tacky. We're signed up to run five events at Gen
July 29, 2007 -
Today's news should be fairly obvious: NEW WEB PAGE! Pop by the forum
and let us know what you think.
July 24, 2007
- It's here! Our first TAG adventure, Imp Hollow, is ready to buy.
Click it in the "On Sale Now" column or just click

2007 - Coming veeerrry soon: our first TAG adventure, Imp Hollow.
This scenario will also contain all the rules you need to
it, so the Hollow will be a complete game session between two covers
(players not included). And just so you know we're serious, here's the
cover, courtesy of Diego

Something about Free RPG Day. Forgot to copy the original
post before updating last time. Oops.
June 4, 2007 - The
forum is back online. Thanks to Pair
Networks for responding so quickly (on the weekend even) and
being ready for this kind of thing in advance.
June 2, 2007 - Yes,
the forum is down for right now, but it will be back. We're
working on it.
April 2, 2007 -
We're back from the Troll
Hoot, which was... well... a hoot. All the good dirt can be
found at Kopfy's Kreche (linked in the "Never Click Here" box, below).
March 31, 2007 -
Laggy's Adventure Gaming (LAG) is now Tom's Adventure Gaming (TAG). For
information, see the forums. Development has begun on Isun,
the next World of Elder supplement. More news may be forthcoming after
we get back from the Troll
February 20, 2007 -
We're through with MegaCon, Athebes is still looking good, and
everything is on track to make this an eventful spring and summer.
There's even a facelift for the home page coming up. Keep your eye on
this space and the forum for more news.
January 4, 2007 -
Happy New Year! 2007 is going to be the Year of the Peryton! This is
not as horrible as it may sound. We've got a new string of freebies
rolling out starting this week, we've got Athebes
streaking through final draft phase, and there are minotaurs and
spacemen peering over the horizon. Sure, a few unfortunates may be
gored and eaten by malevolent flying beasties, but they probably had it
December 8, 2006 -
Thanks to Mister Simon Lee Tranter, Athebes has a cover! Scroll down a
bit and take a peek. And if you like that, you'll love what's inside!
We're looking at a release date around January 15 for the book.
November 5, 2006 -
We're back from Con on the Cob which, by the way, totally rocked!
Thanks to Kali Z. and Rob B. who helped us playtest Ruin
Quest. We also met some great new artists
and played some cool games, and now we're ready to get back to work.
Look for a free PDF supplement to Peryton
RPG within a week or so, and Athebes
sometime this winter.
October 19, 2006 - Con
on the Cob is coming! Don't forget to look for us there.
We'll be running two LAG adventures and a Tunnels & Trolls
has been postponed a bit, but it should still be ready by mid-winter.
August 20, 2006 - Gen
Con is over and we're getting ready for Con
on the Cob with two LAG adventures and a Tunnels &
Trolls session. Peryton
Fantasy RPG is now available online and we're putting the
final touches on the Athebes
setting for this fall.
August 1, 2006 - The
Peryton RPG is ready
to order now! Also, don't forget to check out our new Rocketmen
vs the Saucers teaser in Upcoming Events and Ruin
Quest in the Developing Projects box.
July 27, 2006 - It's
on its way! If all goes according to plan, the Peryton RPG will be
ready to order by the middle of next week! And don't forget to check
Quest in the Developing Projects box.
May 14, 2006 - We've
rearranged the front page a bit to give you more information on
Athebes, the Primal Land, a new setting we're planning to put out in
October, so scroll on down and check it out.
April 22, 2006 -
Scroll down for a bit of a treat. That's not quite what the final
layout will look like, but it does give you an early glimpse of Janeen
Satone's fantastic cover art. The Peryton RPG, as previously stated,
should be ready for release this August at the very latest.
March 22, 2006 -
Everything but the gloss is done on the Peryton RPG. Also, keep
checking back for updates on our convention events. If all goes
according to plan, we'll be running introductory adventures for both
Peryton RPG and L.A.G. at Gen Con Indy 2006.
December 19, 2005 -
Okay, so we paused a bit to play with something new: we have our very
now! Stop in and say hi. Or else. Now I guess we'd better get back to
putting out some actual products, eh? In other news, Laggy's
Adventure Gaming system (L.A.G.) is back on the development
roster, and the Peryton
RPG is almost ready.
October 22, 2005 -
Work on the RPG project has really picked up. We're almost ready to
give you a taste. In the meantime, we've at least added a bit of
peryton lore for the curious. Scroll down to learn more about these
September 13, 2005 -
For one thing, you might have noticed the new entry in the "Upcoming
Events" box over to the left. Second, playtesting on the Peryton RPG
has revealed a few rules that need to be tweaked, and of course we're
still hard at work turning all these notes into something that makes
sense and looks pretty.
August 23rd, 2005 -
We're back from Gen Con and we've still got tentacles on the brain. Met
some great people and played a lot of games. Now it's back to work,
slaving over a hot... okay, room temperature keyboard and getting our
own game back on track. As you can see, we at least managed to make a
few more changes to the web page and more are coming!
August 15th, 2005 -
We're off to Gen Con in a couple of days, so you won't be hearing any
news about the Peryton RPG or any of our other projects until next
week. Seeya in Indianapolis!
August 5th, 2005 -
Okay, so the False Starts announcement was a bit
of a false start itself. That project will probably take a different
form, somewhat later. The main reason is that the Peryton RPG is really
coming along and we're focusing all our energy on that, for now.
July 30th, 2005 - The
playtest of Peryton RPG is going well, but we're not just sitting back
and watching. Soon we'll be accepting submissions for False
Starts, a fiction magazine with a theme you've never seen
before, one that's probably a bad idea, even. Guidelines will be
released in a week or so and then you'll see what we mean.
July 21st, 2005 - The
playtest edition of the Peryton Role-Playing Game™
is back from the printer and going out to several hives of scum and
villainy as we speak. This game features enough core mechanics from the
world's most popular role-playing game to make it easily compatible
with their supplements, but has been streamlined to create a faster,
more exciting tabletop experience with less bookkeeping and prep time.
July 16th, 2005 -
Welcome back to Peryton Publishing. We got kinda sleepy for a while, but now we're
back with some new tricks and some new projects. Okay, so we still
haven't gone any farther with Voidfarers or Ziggurat
Builders but hey, they're not hurting anybody. Expect more
printed publications. Expect to hear about a whole new take on
Lovecraftian gaming and about the best d20 variant rules you've ever
