Gloomveil.com offers intrigue and adventure for players of any "pen-and-

feast, this site truly captures the meaning and execution of

Gloomveil world continues to expand with the unveiling of "Rust Dragon's

RPG effort) and others are encouraged to check the site out."
Beyond the Web-based Gloomveil experience, "Extensions" to the Gloomveil
world are being planned for cross-platform games such as Neverwinter
Nights, Rune, MythII:Soulblighter, and for print publication as a stand-
