Whisper & Venom


Doom has chosen.

In an isolated valley a mysterious dark force has unleashed a powerful energy. This channeling of destructive power has rent the fabric between worlds.

Fear has conjured dark dreams for all who dwell within the arms of impassible mountain walls. The Whisper Vale has been cursed with poor weather and a late harvest. Cold winds blow through the Vale from the north. Such portents have weakened nerves and sown the seeds of discontent. As clouds of despondency build, they compensate with merrymaking. Excessive drunkenness and foul humours lead to misplaced accusations of moral failure. Resentment and exasperation erode trust. Standing too near the tapestry,they see only the threads.

There are those that see. Experience and knowledge give them perspective. They know that a foreign malevolence has entered the Vale. They cannot explain the design behind this new threat. Even experience and knowledge have their limits. When such limits are reached, idle speculation is all that remains.

Ultimately, the folk of Whisper and their erudite neighbors find kinship in their inaction.

What good is a warning when none take heed?

Welcome to Whisper.

Whisper & Venom
is a comprehensive OSR adventure and regional setting for character levels 3-5. It was written using the Labyrinth Lord rules but was designed to be as portable to other OSR rules systems as possible.

The interactive version was completely redesigned to take advantage of the strengths of digital publishing. Layers, chaptering, comprehensive linking and interactive buttons that give immediate access to relevant table and maps are on every page.

It was nominated for a 2014 3 Castles Award for RPG Design and received two ENnie nominations (Best Production Values & Best Miniatures Product).

It has been featured on Save or Die, Roll for Iniative and has been reviewed by numerous bloggers.

I don't see the difficulty level of the adventure. Why?

Hi, the level is described in the beginning of section 2 of the PDF (Character Levels 3-5). The appendices also have a section specifically for options to help with balancing play difficulty for your campaign. Should you have any specific questions I am happy to answer any time.

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.
