In the Hollow of the Spider Queen + PDF

The great Spider Queen lies dead at the border of the human lands,
laid low by the 
order of your mother, Queen Alyria.

Now, fearing for your life in the ensuing turmoil, you have fled the palace at Bastow,
seeking the relative 
safety of anonymity on the open road.

What secrets will you uncover as you explore the continent you’ve never seen?
​What creatures will you meet, and how will 
your fates intertwine, for good or for ill?

​A complete roleplaying game for one GM and one player, set in a world of gritty fantasy where magic is slowly slipping away.

  • Inspired by old-school fantasy
  • Focused on nonviolent resolution
  • Random tables on nearly every page
  • Powered by the Apocalypse

Character Creation

No playbooks; just select your stat levels and starting goals, then roll up your HP, RP, and Gold. 


Provides an "OSR experience" of exploration and limited initial information, while promoting options for conflict resolution other than hacking and slashing. NPCs always want something from you, and probably don't want to die.

While there are multiple examples of PBtA "moves" throughout the text, these are not codified for the player... the GM is encouraged to adhere to rulings not rules, and come up with a robust set of consequences for dice rolls on-the-fly.


 56 pages, softcover, packaged with a character sheet and three full-color maps.

If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
