Gary Gygax's Necropolis


I am the Set Rahotep

No man was more potent when I was amongst those dwelling in the land of Khemit. In death, I am greater still!
Do you not fear serpents? I am the Aepep Rahotep!
Who does not tremble before the monsters of the Duat? I am one!
Does your flesh not crawl at the sight of a terrible wyrm? I am the Deathwyrm Rahotep!
Does your blood run cold before the face of a fiend? Know then that I am Rahotep the Fiend!
Who shuns not demons? Shun me, for I am the demon Rahotep, the Red Devil.
And which fool listens? That one is wise! Praise Set and the Set Rahotep, that one, and pity the rest!

An Epic Adventure and Sourcebook

Gary Gygax's Necropolis is a vast campaign scenario that sweeps the characters into an epic adventure across the magical desert kingdom of Khemit. From a hidden evil in a desert village to the secrets of ancient tombs, Necropolis takes the characters on a dangerous mission to thwart the plans of an undying archpriest-wizard who would be a god!

Necropolis is also a campaign sourcebook detailing the lands of Khemit, new classes and prestige classes, new spells, and more than 60 monsters unique to the desert lands. This book also details over 50 new gods and new cleric domains, allowing GMs to run extended campaigns in the desert kingdom.

Players beware! Your characters will face certain death herein!

Gary Gygax's Necropolis is a full-length 288-page epic Third Edition adventure and campaign sourcebook designed for four to eight characters of levels 10–18. The source material and initial adventures can be used with lower-level PCs as well, but no one under 10th level should attempt to enter Rahotep's tomb.

Are page 279 and page 280 supposed to have the exact same map on them? :) I assume it was supposed to have the map from page 83.

The stat blocks are for 3rd Edition/D20 System, so unless you're ready, willing and able to convert it to 5e yourself, I would say no.

Also compatible with Basic Fantasy. Would use that instead of 3.5.

There's a 5th Edition version in the works right now, not sure of the release date, but it's being playtested.

The kickstarter for it is going on right now. It just started. Frog God Games is working on it.

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.
