Seeds: Horror


Welcome to Seeds and to this second product in the new line by Expeditious Retreat Press. Seeds are story ideas, plot ideas, creature ideas, adventure hooks, anything that can grow into an enjoyable gaming experience. Each seed is small (only a paragraph or two at most) and each Seed product will be small as well (only four to five pages), but just like their namesakes, they have great potential when provided with the right environment.

Horror Seeds is roughly four pages packed with adventure ideas suitable for mondern gaming. We've also collected seeds for other genres (modern, supers, fantasy, pulp, post-apocalyptic, sci-fi, western and military).

So drop by the Expeditious Retreat website, checkout our submission guidelines to find out more about the process, and then send us your seeds. Hopefully you'll soon be reading the latest Seed containing your successful seeds. Whew! Enough with the alliteration already, on to the fun! For a free sample, check out our Seeds: Fantasy available here at! Don't forget to pick up Seeds on other genres!

I've written reviews on this site for the Seeds series before, so that should tell you that I certainly like them well enough to keep buying them. :) Seeds: Horror is another useful tool for GMs looking for adventure/campaign ideas. I've never [...]

This is a book, not of rules and game mechanics, but of source material and little story ideas that are described over a few paragraphs. These seeds give GM's ultimate flexibility and are a very good source of inspiration for adventure ideas. <br& [...]

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.
