'Swords of Kos: Unfamiliar Ground' Released by Skirmisher!

Skirmisher Publishing is pleased to announce the release of “Swords of Kos: Unfamiliar Ground,” an exciting swords-and-sorcery fantasy short story by author and artist Sharon Daugherty! This 66-page title is available at DriveThruRPGRPGNow, and DriveThruFiction by itself for $2.99 and as part of a 52% off Swords of Kos Fiction Bundle that contains five other works of fiction ranging in size from short story to novel.

“Unfamiliar Ground” opens upon the festive chaos of the “Hekaton,” the biggest party of the century, as it sweeps across Kos City in a maelstrom of revelry, intoxication, and plays depicting the war between the Olympian Gods and the Titans. A sinister plot is being hatched just out of sight of boozy merrymakers and the authorities alike, however, and when a visiting Gnome stops to help someone who has been badly injured an adventure begins that will carry them away from the bright city and into conflict with a dark and dangerous enemy. 

“Unfamiliar Ground” 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.
