Welcome to the OSR Extravaganza! From now through June 11th, this title has been marked down by 15%! For more values, visit our OSR Extravaganza sale page.

Welcome to Graven, a quiet and peaceful little hamlet. Or is it? The Baron hasn’t come down from his keep in three years. Bandits and worse have been stalking the road. People have been disappearing down by the river. The mine has become unsafe since a recent earthquake… And something has started killing villagers in the night. There is a need for brave adventurers… 

Are you up to the challenge?

Journey into the realms of Alia-Wor, where adventure and mystery await!

Within these covers you'll find 48 pages packed with information about the village of Graven and its surroundings:

     Seven distinct areas to explore
     Wilderness and underground areas needing to be cleared
     A fleshed­out village characters can use as a home base
     Dozens of NPCs to help or hinder the party
     New monsters and a new optional player race
     A non­linear adventure with dozens of side adventures
     Helpful tables (like weather and rumors) to add flavor to the setting
     Notes drawn from playtest games with suggestions for the Referee

The Beast That Waits is the perfect springboard for a long-­term campaign set in the Realms of Wor, or for a short-­term outing in an easy-­to-­use sandbox!

The Beast That Waits is a setting for a party of low-level adventures and compatible with the Swords and Wizardry rules system.

Just a suggestion, but maybe list this under the OSR category and/or Labyrinth Lord as well as OSRIC? Since there is no Swords & Wizardry category, those might be better fits, and they at least seem to be more popular (OSRIC is rather dead, seemingly)

Thank-you for the suggestion. It is now under OSR and Labyrinth Lord. I originally went with OSRIC because the core S&W books is under that, but it never hurts to be under all three. :)

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
