This game focuses on the core part of the adventure the same way a fantasy or action movie would: by showing us why our heroes are friends and then getting them right into the thick of it.

Anyone with a background in OSR games will already be comfortable with the core rules.

A perfect game to play when a couple people from the main campaign are out one night, or when you're just looking for a quick change of pace.


Explorers overlook desert ruins

Through Sunken Lands helps your friends and family adventure together without leaving the house.

  • Familiar rules for running experienced fantasy heroes through a quick dungeon.
  • Perfect for game nights when a player or two are out.
  • Play mid-level characters with the experience to take on anything (or so they think).
  • Build custom dungeons on the fly to suit the evening’s heroes.
  • Survive just one more adventure so that you can impress the youth.
  • Play from convenient handouts, bringing only dice, snacks, and friends.

Play with Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures and Through Sunken Lands

Grizzled Adventurers is the fully-compatible little sibling of two wonderful games:

Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures is a fully compatible sister game. Inspired by the young adult fiction of Ursula K. LeGuin, Lloyd Alexander, and Susan Cooper, it uses the same core rules with a more personal character creation process in order to tell stories of young heroes growing up in a village. You can learn more about Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures here.

Through Sunken Lands is inspired by Michael Moorcock, Fritz Leiber, and Robert E. Howard. It is a kit to make a motley crew of sellswords, sorceresses, and cunning thieves, and send them off in search of gold and glory. You can learn more about Through Sunken Lands here.
