'Swords of Kos: Bloodsuckers' Released by Skirmisher!
Skirmisher Publishing is pleased to announce the release of “Swords of Kos: Bloodsuckers,” a dark swords-and-sorcery short story by author Michael O. Varhola, at DriveThruFiction, DriveThruRPG, and RPGNow! This 52-page title is available by itself for $1.99 or as part of a system-free Swords of Kos Universal Bundle.
“Bloodsuckers” follows a party of intrepid adventurers as they stumble across a band of undead monsters and resolve to track them across the wine-dark sea to their nest on a tiny, disease-ridden island situated off a marshy coast. As they overcome their fears and push on with their mission, however, they are met with one surprise after another and have revealed to them horrors that go beyond their wildest expectations. Join monster hunter Shovelless, Olympian priest Kord, wizard Zoltar, wily little rogue Loleda, and agent of fortune Desdinova on their dark and dangerous quest.
“Bloodsuckers” takes place in the Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting, a swords-and-sorcery milieu set in a Dark Ages fantasy version of the Aegean and the lands surrounding it. A century after a Great Cataclysm destroyed the old world, plunged it into chaos, and reawakened magic and all form of ancient races and monsters, the agents of Gods and Titans struggle against each other, nations strive to survive or dominate one another, and adventurers descend into the ruins in search of wealth and lost technology.
