Nahast is a fantasy world created as a project for the Dungeons & Dragons game, but now has become the backdrop of several projects like this one. A lot of information has been posted in the original webcomic’s website, but more is on the way, especially in the form of a full-fledged gaming book.
Nahast: Chronicles of the Fifth Age
Serialized fiction telling the many different stories possible in the Nahast setting. Serial fiction is delivered chapter by chapter, evolving as it is written. Nahast runs on the author’s private webspace using the WordPress blog software.
