Hellmaw is a dark urban fantasy world created by Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms(R). The first setting to be released by the new transmedia publisher, The Ed Greenwood Group (TEGG), Hellmaw has a ten-year publishing schedule with six story arcs, bringing the confrontation between daemons and humans into brutal light.  This line of books, short stories, audio dramas and much more(!) has some PG offerings, but is overall recommended for mature audiences only.  Daemons, after all, care not for human sensitivities….

 Samantha Murphy
Lore Guardian

Born in Illinois, the land of corn and soybeans, Samantha came to the publishing world through a rather circular route. Starting out as an Irish Dancer at the age of 15, she also became a die-hard fan of D&D and Whitewolf. After years of helping world build (and occasionally destroy) she found text roleplay forums and got interested in editing. A series of lucky coincidences later, she found herself part of TEGG and hung around until they gave her something to do to keep her out of trouble. Now she’s a desk jockey by day and Lore Guardian by night.
