Watermarked PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

Grey-black storm clouds hang low over the Redwater Valley, rolling in from the mountains and heading north, following the course of the river, yet barely troubling the Silver Sea beyond the estuary city of Port Landing. No one has seen the stars in weeks, but what omens can be read portend a great and terrible doom following in the wake of the thunder and lightning. The Redwater collects the rain and swells up its banks, rising water drives subterranean monsters to the surface, the dwarven justicars have retreated to their hidden stronghold, and the mutated denizens of the Wildlands grow ever bolder in their raids.

The player characters find themselves in the middle of this growing chaos, and they are the only ones who can quell the literal rising tide.

Plague of Storms presents two campaign fronts for Dungeon World, half a dozen dungeons, three compendium classes, and a host of NPCs for the player characters to ally with, betray, befriend, antagonise, or murder – or possibly all of the above, in that order or some other. Plague of Storms provides a solid framework for a GM to weave their own story within while still remaining flexible enough to accommodate the swings in fortune of a typical Dungeon World game.

To give you an idea of what you might get up to in the Redwater Valley, here are the triggers for the custom moves in Plague of Storms:

  • When you travel on or by the Silver Ocean...
  • When you wander Cobalt’s palace without a guide...
  • When you are caught in a wildstorm...
  • When you experience a vision of Cenisseren-as-it-was...
  • When returning to a steading that’s been flooded since your last visit...
  • When you release Glimmerdance to fight on its own...
  • The first time you search the archive of the Hidden Library for a prophecy relevant to your current aims...
  • When you pass through a bubble to a new time period...
  • When you pay the burning skeleton of the time-lost city...
  • When you are exposed to the effects of Oil of Oorlgat...
  • When you rummage quickly through the arcane library of the Twilight Stronghold...
  • When you prize the amethysts out of the ritual circle...
  • When you spout lore any time after consulting the monastery-library of Riverwatch Hold...
  • When you consult the face of the mystery clock...
  • When you explore the worm tunnels with no destination in mind...
  • When you plunge heedlessly into the tunnels to escape an enemy or situation...
  • When you try to use the worm tunnels to get somewhere in particular...
  • When you come into physical contact with livewood...
  • When someone tries to cut invading livewood out of your body...
  • When you try to cut invading livewood from someone’s body...
  • When you consume Almodovar’s livewood potion...

I was trying to buy PDF+Softcover book but I couldn't select Shipping method. Doesn't it support International shipping? (I'm Korean)

All the settings I can adjust should allow it. If you still can't order a copy, try contacting Drivethru support - they might be in a better position to help you.

6x9 inches - the same size as the Dungeon World softcover, so they'll look neat sitting together on your bookshelf. :)

Well, that's hopeful. I just tested it on my PC and it seems to work okay, so I think it's something local to the first computer. Unfortunately I'm not an expert on pdfs, so I don't know what might be going wrong. =/

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.
