Peaks and Valleys is a system neutral OSR adventure from Grinning Gargoyle Games. It is centered on wilderness exploration, as the players search a remote mountain valley looking for clues pointing the way to an ancient treasure. Along the way they may hunt for long lost pieces of history, make a powerful friend of a reclusive king, or send him toppling off his throne. This adventure is suitable for 4-6 players of 1rst - 2nd level, and should take the party to levels 5 -6.

In addition to the adventure there is a wealth of optional setting information, making it easy to play Peaks and Valleys as either a one off adventure, or as the centerpiece to a whole campaign.

This module features:

  • A full length adventure that will take a party from 1st to 5th level.
  • 5 fully developed cities and villages, with random areas, extra plothooks, sidequests, and NPCs.
  • 29 wilderness areas, including over a dozen dungeons.
  • A completely optional overarching plot: use this module as an isolated piece of sandbox wilderness, or as a whole adventure.

Hi Rachel!

Peaks and Valleys is 89 pages long, and the printed version comes in a standard 8.5x11" softcover format. In terms of how "big" it is to play, our playtest group took around 20 sessions to play through the adventure. Cheers!

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.
