WORLDS of adventure

After a career in video games, writing, and creative direction, Brandish Gilhelm left the office world to create Runehammer: an RPG publishing project with a myriad of universes and styles for players and GMs to explore. Since those early days, Runehammer has become a best-selling brand with a legion of die hard fans known only as 'The Shield Wall.'

Runehammer's creations can be found in silly videos on YouTube, novels on Amazon, audio books on Audible, RPG PDFs and print-on-demand books on DriveThruRPG, a podcast on Spotify, original session music on Spotify, and premium quality books with RPG titan Modiphius. There are community forums, a discord channel, and a Patreon to explore. After 6 years as a top selling brand in tabletop,

the Rune-iverse just keeps growing.


Hankerin goes by many names: Brandish Gilhelm, Ingrid Burnall, Anaxamon the Locust Mage,

and many more. With a few thousand years of viking history to live up to, he's just getting started.

When he isn't pursuing a passion for tabletop game design, artwork and writing, he's busy drinking beer and chasing his dog Chutney

down the streets of Philly.
