We Are Windmill Crusaders

We're all about making creative games and stories that bring families and friends closer together.

Windmill Crusaders got its start in 2014 when Mark Hansen and his two sons, Jacob and Brendon, started playing their new system for table-top role-playing. Later dubbed "The Hero's Tale" and published, they have gone on to add many other creative works, like the scriptural collectible card game "Seeker's Quest", the fast playing family dice game "Wyrmheist", and Mark's fantasy novel series "A Tale of Heroes". The most recent addition to the lineup is Jacob R Hansen's debut novella "The Queen's Game"!

Check back here often, and we'll keep you updated on new projects! We have way more ideas than we have time or money to develop, but we keep workin' on 'em anyway!
