Occult Philosophy with Schwalb Entertainment

Schwalb Entertainment has been producing some incredible content since Shadow of the Demon Lord. And keep coming up with more. Uncompromising, Swchalb Entertainment has released one of the most brutal and truly chaotic worlds with Shadow of the Demon Lord and the complete line of work by Robert Schwalb is just pure madness and genius.

Matt Forbeck is the New York Times best seller author who has just published four Endless Quest books based in D&D Forgotten Realms. Matt Forbeck has been writing professionally since 1989 and has a plethora of books on his back. Probably so many he would not be able to carry them all if he had one issue of each on his back for real.
