Grave Undertakings: The Ship of Fools


“If nautical nonsense be something you wish…”

Then hop on the deck and… explore the Ship of Fools!  Despite its release in time for April Fool’s Day, this adventure is no joke!

The Ship of Fools

Written by TPK’s titanic tag team of former RPG Superstar challenger Richard A. Hunt, and current RPG Superstar challenger “Mr. Threepeat” Tom Phillips.

A strange seaborne adventure designed for the Pathfinder RPG, with scaling options for 4-6 characters of 5th-7th level.

Welcome to the weather-beaten deck of the Green Lady, a galleon adrift on the blue-green waves... but where is her crew? Where is her legendary captain, the self-exiled wizard, Vossian the Green? Set sail 'lubbers and find out in this, our very latest Grave Undertaking starring your characters as the daring scallywags destined to solve the mystery of The Ship of Fools. You're sure to enjoy this excellently weird horror-trip written especially for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, and delivered in true TPK Games fashion. Brave deadly zombies, mind-control slimes, suicidal haunts, sharks, swarms of eels and maybe your own crew (!) amongst other delightful deadlies in this rollicking good time!

As a bonus, this three-hour-tour also features a wonderfully detailed 13-page, full-color battlemat of the sinking ship herself--The Green Lady! Print it out, put it on your game table and you're ready to set anchor!

This adventure can be dropped into any campaign setting as a dangerous one-shot session, or as part of your bigger ongoing plot. Hooks are provided to get your group into the action as soon as possible, whether your campaign is already happening at sea or in port.

This adventure features high-quality horrific original art by Michael Fall, a detailed, full-color map of the Green Lady (plus 13 pages of battlemats!), a captain's log player handout and uses the Open Game License to work with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules.

The pdf contains full bookmarks, a hyperlinked table of contents for easy navigation while running, and full hyperlinks to the award-wining web site so that everything you need to run the adventure is right at your fingertips! This adventure is sure to float your boat.

You asked for it—your players can blame us.

Weighing in at 52 pages, with 6 pages going to the basics (cover/OGL/etc.), 1 page going to a fully linked TOC, which I love to see, as sometimes I don't want to waste my screen space with the bookmarks (which this PDF is fully stacked on as well by th [...]

This pdf is 52 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC, 3 pages of advertisements and 1 page SRD, leaving 45 pages of content - not a bad deal indeed! This being a review of an adventure, I encourage potential players to ski [...]

Total Party Kill Games has another winner on its hands with Grave Undertakings: Ship of Fools. It is set upon the high seas and promises high adventure. The overall product lay out is good, keeping in theme with their other adventures. I like very much [...]

Opening with a truly beautiful plan of the ship itself, and detailed background that explains how The Green Lady came to be drifting empty, Marie Celeste-style across the face of the ocean, we continue with little ado into various ways in which your ch [...]

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.
