Draken Games is an independent publisher of RPG and wargame material, based in North East England. As a starting point, we sifted through the accumulated paperwork of a would-be game designer who never threw anything away: over 20 years of work that would otherwise have forever stayed in yellowing notebooks. We continue to mine that motherlode, but since we started publishing material in 2006, Draken Games has attracted a number of other irregular collaborators who provide ideas, artwork and, not least, playtesting.
If we were more commercially minded, we would focus on fewer categories, but what the heck, we're more interested in doing stuff we enjoy. So, we have only one philosophy behind what we produce: "This is the kind of thing I'd want to buy if I hadn't written it myself".
Do please have a look at our products, and be sure to check back, as we continue to extend our catalogue.
