Dungeon Crawl Classics #66.5: Doom of the Savage King


Dungeon Crawl Classics #66.5: Doom of the Savage Kings

A Level 1 Adventure

High above the windswept moors and darksome woods, the village of Hirot is under siege. Each night, as the sun sinks beneath the western mountains and the candles burn low, a devil-beast stalks the village streets, unleashing its savage fury on the living. From warlord to pauper, crone to child, no one is safe.

Defeating the immortal hound will require more than mere blades or even spells. To slay the beast, the characters must delve into the mysteries of the land and its Savage Kings. Only then, armed with relics forged from a bloody past, can the most cunning and courageous of adventurers challenge the hound of Hirot!

  • Earthlight Academy: “Not only is this just a great module, but it's a great template for fledgling DMs looking to understand how to run a "sandbox" style game. If you happen upon this in your FLGS or see a copy on eBay, I would definitely throw down the loot for it.”
  • "The tightly written Doom of the Savage Kings sits on the top-tier of campaign opening adventures."
  • (Matthew J.): "I really like the vibe of this one. It's got a bit of "Beowulf," a bit of "The Hound of the Baskervilles," maybe a dash or two of "Brotherhood of the Wolf," and feels a little like a Hammer Horror film."
  • "Harley Stroh's tale here is fantastic. It feels like it was taken straight from the pages of pulp literature and hits the themes of pulpy dark fantasy perfectly."

This is a great beginner adventure to give new players a well-rounded experience of RPGs. There is a village to experience, NPCs to meet, a dungeon to explore, treasure to find, wilderness to wander, and a Big Bad Boss to defeat. I converted this for [...]

Demonstrating the trademark player-character 'funnel' of Dungeon Crawl Classics, this adventure is for 6-12 first-level characters, not all of whom will make it out alive. Hopefully a few will survive to tell the tale... Set in and around the vi [...]

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.
