A Guide for Wanderers

About the Book

Tikhon is inspired by the OSR (Old-School Renaissance) but also seeks to add a new dimension to what began as a fairly generic Swords and Sorcery realm. Over time, and through player collaboration, the setting has grown and matured. It's a place of dangerous magick, jealous deities, and many wonders.

As a Living Book, we aim to keep adding content as the players and GM from the original campaign develop it. We also invite contributions from outside of our group, making this an Open Source setting development with the author at the helm.

If you're interested, jump on board. We're in for a wild ride!

Game on!
