A scenario/Sourcebook for Crypts and Things, and other Original Edition/1st Edition OSR games using the Shattered Lands setting

"One day this city will have to choose between Life and Death."

So said The Prophet, before being taken to his execution one hundred years ago in the city-state of Miraz.

Miraz the Golden sees itself as the inheritor of the old Lion Empire. It is an oppressive military police state which seeks to dominate its neighbours. Some say the wrath of the gods has been brought down because of its hubris and a plague currently strikes it. Its Tyrant looks on from his remote palace, as the victims of the disease shuffle around the streets as newly-risen zombies. While his heirs fight amongst themselves to see who will succeed their father, once he is toppled by the rebellion that is fermenting in the streets.

Into this madness step the beginning adventurers, out to make a fortune and a name for themselves.

This scenario/sourcebook features four adventures and information about the city-state of Miraz and the setting of the Shattered Lands. It is an epic self-contained mini-campaign that is designed to be picked up and played or be a mine of ideas for a Gamesmaster looking to adapt it to his/her campaign.

This sixty-six-page softcover book contains:

A Travellers Guide to the Shattered Lands. A brief overview of the setting with history, religions, cultures and example character backgrounds. Enough for a GM to use the setting without clipping the wings of inspiration.

Joining the Guild of Treasure Hunters. A very short adventure to introduce the players to the setting.
The Dust of Eternity. A classic raid upon a Sorcerer’s tower with a twist.

Dead Pot Country.  Enter the ancient ruins of the River Valley Civilization in search of a missing Merchant.

Life and Death. Journey to the tyrannical city of Miraz and stop the plague of Undeath that afflicts it.

Format
Original electronic
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.
