The sun sinks slowly over the desolation of the ancient and once grand Empire. In the distance, just upon the slopes of a broad cliff, lie the ruins of a city. Her alabaster walls wind their way along the rocky mesa, guarding buildings both fair and ruined. It was a great city in its day, now long since fallen to the ravages of time and war. Long ago she stood as a shining doorway to the east, a place for rest and restocking of provisions for those on the long trek into the wild lands of the barbaric frontier in the Western Empire. But all that is past for this, the ruins of the Lost City of Gaxmoor.

Throw in the machinations of ancient gods and the rise of a demon prince and you suddenly have a campaign setting that just won’t quit. Here’s a little more of what you’ll be getting.
Outside the Wall: Gaxmoor begins with encounters on beyond the city walls. These include Grimhelda the Witch, burned out buildings, Weary Travelers Respite Inn and Stable a swamp, the gates, breaches in the city wall and more.
The Graveyard: There is a graveyard beyond the walls as well. Hemmed in by hedges and wrought iron fences the graveyard, filled with crypts both small and large, offers mountains of adventure and treasure.
Inside the Wall: Hosts of burned out and ruined buildings, couple with others still occupied and some recently taken over. Here orcs and goblins, gnolls and ogres all vie for power over the bloody streets of this ruined city. From the Grand Theatre to the Home of Bones, the Colosseum to the Public Oratorio, watch towers, homes, The Black Feather Inn…the list goes on.
