Storm & Shield 1: Prime and Nemesis


Return to the Books Page


ss-prime-nemesis-cover-thumbnailA collection of eight, system-neutral planar groups.


The Warlock’s Journal Contest is a product of the Gamer Lifestyle community. Each month, this roving contest jumps from one member’s blog to another. In November 2013 the wandering Warlock’s Journal contest visited my blog for the first time.


The contests on Tales of a GM focus on the organisation Storm & Shield. This is a group which spans the dimensions, with a hand in every world. Elite, well-funded and highly organised, agents of Storm & Shield can be found almost anywhere in the Cosmos.



The Contest: Prime and Nemesis

This contest established Storm & Shield Prime as the elite operation. The companion contest revealed the greatest threat facing the group.


Contestants were invited to describe either the core group of Storm & Shield, or the nature of the enemy. As I had sourced two prizes, I ran these two contests in parallel. The winners were determined by an online poll.



Reprint Note

This pdf was updated in November 2016, and then uploaded to DriveThruRPG, alongside my other Storm & Shield pdfs. This new version has a slightly different layout, and two extra pages. However, I left the bulk of the pdf unchanged. Thus, the history of Storm & Shield makes no reference to the later contests.


This pdf features:

  • The Winning Prime Entry by Ballofrabbit
  • Three additional versions of Storm & Shield Prime
  • The Winning Nemesis Entry by Matthew Pauze
  • Three additional versions of enemies for Storm & Shield
  • All entries are short, system-neutral essays
  • Bookmarks
  • Art Layer for easy printing
  • Internal pdf hyperlinks
  • 16 pages, including front and back covers


Storm & Shield 1: Prime and Nemesis can be downloaded for free from DriveThruRPG [affiliate link]


Happy Gaming
