Pen & Forge Productions is dedicated to producing quality and inspirational publications that are more than just regular books. What started as a venue to release an original gaming book has become much more. Pen & Forge was created by Chris Young in April, 2012 in response to a manuscript rejection. What was only intended to be a hobby of producing gaming books has now developed into a full-time pursuit of producing inspiring publications of all sorts. Whether you’re an avid fan of old-school d20 gaming, or somebody looking for a little inspiration through a difficult time in your life, or if you’d like to read an apocalyptic adventure while understanding the book of Revelation a little better along the way, there’s something here for you.

Second Prophecy is an apocalyptic series without the usual gore and horror that drives most other books and movies of the same genre. Having researched biblical scripture for over fifteen years I found myself continually disappointed with the inaccurate End of Days portrayal, so I decided to write my own fictional adventure. Book I: The Choice is heavily influenced from biblical scripture, particularly the Book of Revelation, and Book II: The Awakening introduces some Gnostic aspects to keep things interesting. Both are mixed with a lot of imagination. I’m not claiming that this piece of fiction is an accurate prediction of Jesus’ second coming, but every bit of apocryphal flavour in this story is inspired from Christian scripture.

A Book of Storms is my wife’s life story that’s written as only she could tell it. Perhaps it’s from the many twists and turns in her sometimes unbelievable life, but Ann is a natural story teller. While the tale of her travels and misadventures is enough of a story in itself, it has been combined with many life lessons based on biblical scripture to make the book complete. Hardship and misfortune are an unwelcome fact of life, but Ann has realized that getting through them, past them, and leaving them behind is the key to living a full life despite not having much to show for it.

The Path of Legends series of gaming books allows you to choose the path of your adventure while using a dice-rolling combat system. In addition to the main story, every book is integrated with a collection of original word puzzles that help to promote vocabulary learning. The series begins with the Lost City of the Dwarves two-book adventure. A recent, independent review by the Roleplayers Chronicle said, “It’s the right blend of traditional d20 roleplaying and gamebook action to create a unique and enjoyable experience that will definitely entertain you for hours.”   Read more about Path of Legends here…
