Tribality Publishing – By Flame, Storm, and Thorn


We have a new publication on DriveThruRPG today. This is the third product we’ve released: By Flame, Storm, and Thorn written by Brandes Stoddard. In The Lord of the Rings, a poem describes Aragorn with the lines “Not all those who wander are lost” and “From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring…” These lines inspire the following archetypes for the Ranger class, for characters who travel the wilds without fear – be they watchful guardian or cunning predator. Use the archetypes below to give your secretive wayfarers some tricks up their sleeves. Each offers a playstyle that suits melee or ranged combat, or shifting between the two, equally well.

These archetypes also make worthy and dangerous adversaries. A sinister Lantern-bearer lures travelers to their deaths with the promise of safety. Some Stormcloaks turn back to the destructive ways of the first of their kind. A Thornguard that gets to pick the field of battle is a terrible foe indeed.

You can get a copy through our Publisher’s page or with this direct link: By Flame, Storm, and Thorn. If you’ve been a Patreon with us for a while, we have sent out coupons to our Shaman, Hunter & Warrior supporters. Thanks to everyone that has helped us to this point!
