Skirmisher Releases ‘Castle Builder Volume 1: Strongholds’

Skirmisher Publishing LLC has released Castle Builder Volume 1: Strongholds, the first installment in a 10-part series of universal sourcebooks designed to help Game Masters and players plan their ideal fortifications in a step-by-step format from the ground up. The book has no specific setting and is designed to accommodate any technological era that one is likely to encounter in a fantasy campaign setting, from the Stone Age to the Renaissance.

Castle Builder Volume 1: Strongholds ($4.99, SKPE1109, 54 pages) is written by Richard T. Balsley, author of Gary Gygax’s Cosmos Builder, and follows Skirmisher’s popular City Builder series of guides to designing complete communities. It includes:

* Introduction to the nature of strongholds, why they are built, and how they are perceived;

* Various material types ranging from the historic to the fantastic;

* How to consider the most logical layout for your needs and the story potential this holds;

* Ways to integrate a stronghold’s existence with a local community; and,

* Everything you need to quickly lay out your stronghold with standardized rooms, as well as free-form guidelines to make anything uniquely suited to personalizing your designs!

Castle Builder Volume 1: Strongholds is fully bookmarked and designed to be printer-friendly and easy-to-use and is available from DriveThruRPG (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=93068&affiliate_id=200677)
and RPGNow (http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=93068&affiliate_id=79547).
