Sinister Adventures is a small RPG imprint founded by Nicolas Logue, a fan favorite adventure writer. He contributed a bunch of Dungeon adventures back in the day, and now is probably best known for authoring the demented ogre hillbilly horror of The Hook Mountain Massacre, third in Paizo’s Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path and various other adventures like Crown of the Kobold King, Hangman’s Noose, and Carnival of Tears (Paizo GameMastery modules), Edge of Anarchy (first in the Curse of the Crimson Throne AP), Blood of the Gorgon (an Open Design project), and Voyage of the Golden Dragon (an Eberron module).
Well, Sinister showed up, threw out some great ideas, awesome concept art, and some PDF products/previews for some upcoming mega-adventures – and then sank silently beneath the waves for a long time. Like more than a year long. Even the forums on the site broke and things went to pot. Nick would occasionally chime in on the Paizo boards or whatnot but the upshot was that he had way too many other jobs going on.
Luckily for you and I, that has changed, and Nick and Sinister have resurfaced, fixed their site, and are charging towards a date of Sep 1 for their first, Razor Coast, to go into layout! Pirates, cannibal cultists, shark gods, and more tangle in a blood-soaked orgy of violence. Many previews and blindingly beautiful art pieces are posted on their site!
And the best part, it’ll be for 3.5 and Pathfinder… I am psyched. I was actually getting set to run a Pathfinder Pirates campaign and was dusting off my old Freeport stuff; I had given up hope of Razor Coast ever happening. But now, it’s on and on for soon! I do so look forward to watching my players weep in fear.
