The Official Gen Con 2007 Devil's Keep News Page
Shamelessly stealing this idea from the Kentucky Fried Gamers, I thought I'd post a little bit about the Crusaders of the Holy Lands game I'm running at Gen Con 2007, known as "Devil's Keep."

This page provides just a little bit of background information on some of the characters involved in the adventure. The information on the characters below is the basic information known to all of the players. The idea is that you get to learn a little bit about the different people and the setting involved ahead of time. The goal of the demo game at Gen Con is to learn as much as you can about the game and setting in one sitting. Just like the game description reads, the characters are traveling in a small caravan to the southern most Crusader border. While things have been peaceful for many years, dark rumors have spread of coming danger. If you'd like to learn more about the game itself
