Wormskin explores the mythic forest called Dolmenwood, a weird folklore setting for use with B/X or similar tabletop adventure games. Each issue uncovers various elements of this eldritch realm situated on the leafy verges of Fairy, where austere Drunes rub elbows with weird elf-lords and talking beasts, where witches wander skyclad and armed with sinister magicks to bind the spirits of hapless adventurers. Be wary.

Complete Dolmenwood Setting In Development!

The eight issues of Wormskin are a piecemeal exploration of Dolmenwood and do not form a complete and comprehensive campaign setting. The complete Dolmenwood setting is currently in development and will be published as three hardcover books: a player's book, a campaign book, and a monster book. Most of the material from Wormskin will be included in the hardcover books in a revised and updated form, alongside reams of brand new material. Collectors may wish to purchase the Wormskin zine issues in the meantime, for the sake of completeness.

Loving the Brass Eye references ;) though shame none of them stimulate Statner's Bassoon!

Ha, I'm always happy when people spot those! (Not many people do.) You're right, not mentioning their effects on Shatner's Bassoon was a huge oversight!

I received my print copy today, and noticed that it contained both issues one and two bound together. Is this correct?

No, that sounds like a printing error. If you want another copy, just contact customer support. They're really good about sending out replacements for damaged or messed up books.

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.
