A compilation of Playbooks and tools for characters in games of Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures.

Champions rise and fall by the company they keep…

There are dangers throughout the land, but your home is not unguarded. A hero might spring from any number of origins: the children of the nobility, unlikely champions within the village, or wanderers from the land of faerie. Make your name, stand with your friends, and defend your family.

Meet new heroes, young and old...

Heroes Young and Old compiles all of the free material from four addons for Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures, and gives more besides. This book helps players and gamemasters create their own Character Playbooks, tell stories with new spells, rituals, and magic items, and populate their villages and worlds with interesting NPCs and monsters. Also included are rules for the gnome, a new fantastic creature.

• Collected material from The Village, The Nobility, Dwarves, Elves, and Halflings, and The Elders, including old favorites, like the Nobleman’s Wild Daughter, the Assistant Beast Keeper, and the Dwarven Mentor.
• Six new Character Playbooks, including the Knightless Squire, the Recluse Wizard, and the Gnomish Godparent.
• New spells, rituals, magic items, rare herbs, traits, and bestiary entries.
• Guidelines for making your own Character Playbooks.

Is this a 5th edition D&D... or is it Old School?

It's old-school. BEYOND THE WALL is a retro-clone.

So what is the POD cost then? Want to know how much more would go to the team.

The POD cost changes from time to time. The easiest way to determine the price is to select the hardcover book and enter a price of zero. The cart will provide an error message that lets you know the minimum price, which is the cost of printing.

If you're having trouble with the ordering process, DriveThru's customer support has been quite helpful when I've had questions and concerns. I recommend reaching out to them.

I tried to purchase the POD for this after it released, and Drivethru submitted my order as the zip only. I just noticed after checking up on my order (I ordered Further Afield as well, and only thought to check status after I got FA but not HYO). Now if I want the POD I have to pay what, the minimum cost to print the book? Again? I paid more than that last time, and apparently Drivethru thought it was just for the zip (which I already had from the initial release). Not happy. I realize it isn't Flatland's fault, but still, not happy.

I'm afraid I can't correct this myself, but DriveThru's customer support has been quite helpful when I've had questions and concerns. I recommend reaching out to them and providing your order number.

Yeah, I plan to. Again I know it isn't you. Just frustrated. I think it was confused because I already had the zip before the POD came out.

Wow, and they just put in a POD for me, printing and on the way. I am extremely impressed, and glad to continue to give Drivethru my business.

I'm sorry to hear this. (I want you to buy a copy, too!) In testing this out, I found that the system requires JavaScript, and seems to take two tries with Internet Explorer. I've emailed our contact at DriveThruRPG about your issue. They've been wonderful whenever I've reached out to them for help, so I recommend you let them know.

Having trouble adding the POD...
Customer avatar

There is a minimum charge set by the printer, which isn't very visible. I believe the site uses JavaScript to check this. If the order still gives you trouble, the kind folks at DriveThru have been wonderful at helping me.

Cannot wait for POD. We started a session last weekend and I have never ever gotten a response like the one i got. I printed a huge village map on poster paper and made everyone draw in the locations and they WENT WILD! Im digging the playbooks, the scenario books and the threats... its basically amazing.

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.
