Adventure Module BL1-2: The Ruined Hamlet/Terror in the Gloaming

Watermarked PDF

Into the Unknown! The wilderness around the cave stronghold called Gold Hill Trading Post is dangerous and scattered with ruins of large and small settlements. Will your party find fame and fortune, solve ancient mysteries, or just disappear into the Borderlands like so many that came before? This module contains underground and wilderness maps that form a detailed adventure and mini-campaign for beginning characters, including an abandoned village, haunted graveyard, ruined church, traders’ camp, wilderness encounters, and monster lairs. It also includes a ruined keep and dungeon as well as a mapped and detailed “base camp” stronghold. The module is designed for use with all “classic” fantasy roleplaying game rulebooks or sets for Basic- and Expert-level players and gamemasters. It can be converted for use with “Advanced” fantasy game rules and compatible systems with a minimum of effort. Cover art by William McAusland! Print version available at

A interesting starter mod. I haven't run it but it looks well laid out. I aim to convert to RQ6CF and run it with that system [...]

The Ruined Hamlet/Terror in the Gloaming is an excellent free adventure resource that features the art of William McAusland and author and designer Barrataria. The module is a solid low level crawl and features some other solid adventure resources that [...]

A good low level adventure. There are some 50 pages of adventuring and 6 pages of maps! The settings include a fully detailed hamlet, a widerness section, a graveyard, a trading post, and much more. The module is action-packed and enjoyable. [...]

This is an extensively detailed low-level module which reminds me a bit of The Village of Hommlet. Its length is probably because it's actually two modules combined. It's very playable and has the potential for providing hours of fun for those wanting [...]

Personally, I found this fairly clunky to read through and get a handle on. There's a lot of stuff semi-detailed which might be ideal if you want to take raw materiel and mould it to your own ideas, but many of the elements of the area seem without clear [...]

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.
