Lankhmar: City of Thieves


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

In the City of Sevenscore Thousand Smokes, danger lurks down every dark alley. Sinister sorcerers summon terrible forces in their crumbling towers. Treacherous rogues of the Thieves’ Guild prowl the Plaza of Dark Delights. Assassins from the Slayers’ Brotherhood work the Tenderloin District. And hunched figures skitter beneath the streets, waiting for their chance to rise.

But there is action, adventure, and wealth here too–if your rogues have the skill and bravado to claim it.

Lankhmar: City of Thieves is the core setting book for Fritz Leiber’s world of swords & sorcery. It contains details on the world of Nehwon and the city of Lankhmar, Setting Rules, Savage Tales, monsters and foes, and recounts the tales of world’s most notorious scoundrels–including Fafhrd, the Gray Mouser, and their sorcerous sponsors.

This book requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play. If you wish to play with the updated Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rule set, you may do so with the free conversion guide here.

I am just writing a convention scenario for this, based on the Street Of The Gods. I thought I would print the map out in here, as it has a nice clear numbered key, in addition to the larger poster map I have also bought. Unfortunately the re is a typo on the map page 43. Street Of The Gods has a 39 on it, but the key says it is the Street Of Thinkers, which is incorrect. Similarly St of The Thinkers is listed as St Of The Gods, so a quick swap around should fix it. Cheers :-)

It would be great if there were a POD option for this...I'm hoping that's a possibility at some point.

Agreed. I would buy a premium hardcover of this.

A full color hardcover is being printed by Pinnacle, just not via POD. So it'll have better quality printing, but may not be as convenient to buyers outside of the U.S.

I would love to get the hardcover of this pdf. Always been a fan of Lankhmar and I like SW. When did this come out? I check in here more often. ;)

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.
