Lankhmar: City of Thieves (SW) – Sean’s Pick, 042015

One of truly legendary fantasy series of all time is that of Fritz Leiber’s Lankhmar saga. It was one of the great influences on Gary Gygax and many others involved with the earliest days of Dungeons & Dragons (Fritz was actually a fan of the game, and a frequent guest at game cons).

It’s been missing from gaming for a time now, at least as a major RPG release.

Now, it’s back, and as Savage as it truly should be, thanks to Pinnacle!

In the City of Sevenscore Thousand Smokes, danger lurks down every dark alley. Sinister sorcerers summon terrible forces in their crumbling towers. Treacherous rogues of the Thieves’ Guild prowl the Plaza of Dark Delights. Assassins from the Slayers’ Brotherhood work the Tenderloin District. And hunched figures skitter beneath the streets, waiting for their chance to rise.

But there is action, adventure, and wealth here too–if your rogues have the skill and bravado to claim it.

Lankhmar: City of Thieves is the core setting book for Fritz Leiber’s world of swords & sorcery. It contains details on the world of Nehwon and the city of Lankhmar, Setting Rules, Savage Tales, monsters and foes, and recounts the tales of world’s most notorious scoundrels–including Fafhrd, the Gray Mouser, and their sorcerous sponsors.
