Nomicon Saga Takes Center Stage for Halloween

For the first time ever, Egsa Press takes gamers beyond the table top! Gamers get ready for Nomicon Saga–the all new book from Egsa Press. Nomicon Saga (ISBN: 978-0-9884167-5-8) transports readers into a different world, “a world most eyes cannot see, a place of shadows with substance, always lurking just beyond the day.” Nomicon Saga Anthology One is the first collection of tales from the horror/action adventure series. The first volume is filled with eleven short works set in the expanded universe created by the game ShatterCaster: New Kingdom. The series follows a band of friends and foes linked by the mysterious and ancient box—a box that if found will change the life of the finder and open the door to a greater game.
