Something Stirs in the Blackscale Brakes

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $3.00

The Brakes have never exactly been a good place to live: horrible food and real estate, flesh-eating lizardfolk, disease, poisonous animals, violent nature spirits, and more make day-to-day living a luxury. As bad as things seem however, they are about to get much, much worse because...

something stirs in the Blackscale Brakes.

This campaign front foundation takes place in and around the Blackscale Brakes, a forest-turned-ever-expanding swamp. The humans settled around its borders try to escape or exploit it, the elves try to restore it to its vibrant glory, and the lizardfolk just want everyone to keep out (and they are not even the most dangerous thing living there).

Whether you are planning to start a campaign, started gaming in general, need ideas, or are strapped for time this campaign front foundation has got you covered with:

  • Three "assumed" dangers (and several optional ones).
  • Five dungeons, each with their own moves, monsters, and treasure ideas.
  • Five steadings, each with their own cast, impressions, and moves.
  • A compendium class that allows you to gain the abilities of the Dweller in Darkness himself.
  • New dungeon gear and magic items.
  • A "director's cut" to give you some ideas and insights.

What is in the swamp? Will the characters help resolve differences between warring factions, claim the swamp for themselves, stop an ancient evil from awakening, or die in sodden, unmarked graves like so many before them?

Play to find out what happens.

I wish DTRPG had a way to email you when someone comments on something...

I'm curious what you think, what I did bad, what could have been done better, what could have been added, etc!

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.
