Perilous Almanacs


A collection of six "almanacs"for Dungeon World, written using the guidelines set down in The Perilous Wilds, and adapted in unique ways by each of the six contributors. This book is meant to be used in play when a quick wildrness adventure setting is desired, and as a set of examples of the different ways in which one might go about writing a regional almanac.

The regions included are:

  • Kirotoki Marsh by Donna Almendrala, wherein the eerie Black Stump awaits travelers lost in the mist
  • The Ancient Alvar by Rachel Kahn, an expanse of limestone flats scoured by chaotic gales 
  • The Paths of Atekazé by Jeremy Strandberg, a subterranean realm ruled by cultists of the Fire Worm
  • Three Faces by Michael Prescott, a trio of mountainous peaks shrouded in mystery
  • Ahmaradis, the Pale Dunes by Joseph Vandel, a blinding desert presided over by a sect of holy warriors
  • Vannrik, the Lake Kingdom by Sophie Yanow, where the local music scene drives sentient sea life to distraction

Outstanding content! Love the way this is laid out, and this format lends itself well to adventuring in otherwise boring or "filler" wilderness areas between more detailed dungeons. I HIGHLY recommend Lampblack and Brimstone publications. [...]

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.
