Bloodstone Press is a multimedia entertainment company that develops content for several worlds of adventure. Our primary media formats are role playing games and short stories.


Bloodstone Press began in 2001 as Netherland Games and released two D20 RPG titles, the Primal Codex and the  Book of Broken Dreams. After restructuring in 2003 as Bloodstone Press, the company  produced several top selling and well reviewed OGL titles including 22 Talent TreesWilderness TrapsNature’s Wrath, and Hell on Earth (1939-1945).

Between 2004 and 2008 a lot of development was done on 1948, the Primal LegendsBeyond the Veil, and the Shadelands. Popular titles from this period include Glinda of OzThe Vimana, and Organizations, Agencies, and Secret Societies.

From 2008 until 2012  we took time off to focus on other aspects of life. Some projects were still finished during this period including Magic of the SS, but development was slow and the business atrophied.

In 2012 we began updating Bloodstone’s backlist, expanding the product line, hiring new artists and editors, and breathing new life into the company. We launched two new campaign settings, Telestic Engine and M.E.T.A. Force, and we produced several  short stories and game supplements for them including Spell CannonsPower Armor,  Shadow GirlThe Great Race, and H.A.C.K.S.A.W. In a fit of inspiration, Amazons vs Valkyries was added to the product line in 2015.

Between 2015 and 2020 development continued on Amazons vs Valkyries, and a new science fantasy campaign setting, Ashes of Lemuria, was conceived and developed.

When the Covid pandemic hit in early 2020, we took the opportunity to return to working full time on developing our worlds of adventure. Amazons vs Valkyries was updated to 5e and we hired a small army of freelance writers, editors, and artists to help develop the setting. Over the next couple of years we built this new website, launched a Patreon page, a Twitter account, an Instagram account, a YouTube Channel, and ran successful Kickstarters for Poisonous Plants and the Complete Thaumaturgic Codex. The codex also became our first PoD.

Today, we continue to produce new material for our worlds of adventure, as well as for other settings that are still in development. 


Bloodstone Press works with several artists on a contractual basis including Phil SimpsonFernando CanoJoao Mileski, and Jeff Ward.

We also use a lot of stock art from industry professionals including Claudio CasiniEric LofgrenRick HersheyWilliam McAuslandMatt MorrowBrian BrinleeJeremy Hart, and many others.

Banners on this website use artwork by Rick Hershey, Phil Simpson, Fernando Cano, William McAusland, and Claudio Casini.


The freelancers who have helped develop the Amazons vs Valkyries setting include Arthur Seixas De Martino, Hannah Wolfe, Miguel Colon, Beth Jones, Jennifer R. Povey, and Sarah Lyon.


None of this would be possible without all of the great people whose characters have suffered through endless hours of confusion, torture, disfigurement, disease, humiliation, failure, and death. To them we extend a hearty and well-deserved thank you!
