The Imperial Matchmaker sandbox mega adventure for 5E is a full color hardcover book that takes characters from 4th through 10th level as they try to stop the disruption of Emperor Hitoshi's decreed nuptials—or use the grand events to gain glory, fame, and power in the disparate lands of Soburin. Throughout the adventure PCs explore the richly detailed imperial capital of Sanbaoshi while fighting off adeddo-oni emerging from the Mists of Akuma and discovering the subplots woven into the module for their characters, each one of them unique and distinct from their mercenary peers.

GUEST: STEFAN POKORNY AKA “THE DWARVENAUT”

Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan decided to create "real" dungeon terrain that would equal his incredible 25mm tall hero figures. After many months of painstaking design, sculpting and painting, he introduced the world's finest pre-painted miniature terrain in 1996.
