Come visit the acid fantasy mini-sandbox of the Misty Isles, a hellish pocket plane that's brutally displaced a bucolic paradise. Marvel at its massive grub-ridges, shake at the body horror of its protein vats—and watch as your players dynamically unleash the Anti-Chaos Index through their own in-game actions. Misty Isles of the Eld is a stand-alone sequel to Slumbering Ursine Dunes and Fever-Dreaming Marlinko.

What's inside its 104 pages:

Four dungeons. The Vat Complex (with its menacing sealed off-west wing, body-horrific industrial process and pocket dimensions), the flying god-prison Monument Five, the meth-fruit Plantation House and Colonel Zogg's Pagoda Bunker.

Full “extra-planar” pointcrawl. The wilderness crawl spreads over one main isle and two smaller islets subdivided by massive, movable grubs.

An “Anti-Chaos Index.” Through their actions the players shape the very reality of the Isles. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worst, but always for the weird.

A slew of new otherwordly monsters.

A large collection of bizarre technological Eldish artifacts and treasure. Includes a random generator for miscellaneous artifacts picked up.

A new psionicist player class, the Psychonaut, with a soft scifi twist. Including its own powers and mutations.

"The Misty Isles of the Eld ... is a hundred and four page acid trip ... if Frank Baum and William Burroughs had gotten together [for] a weekend of drink and drugs."

-- Needles, Swords & Stitchery

"The party will be dealing with a coordinated and professional opposition, and the book does a good job making the encounters and NPCs interesting while not forgetting that. There's a great deal of time spent laying out for referees the various resources the Eld (evil space elves from hell, with Melniboinean flourishes) have at hand and how they use them."

--John Bell, The Retired Adventurer

What levels is this module/setting aimed at?

4-7 PCs of levels 14-20, which is around 6 PCs at level 3 (though there are some areas which will prove to be a very tough challenge for an ill-prepared party of that size, so can easily handle PCs a level or two higher).

The proof is on the way. If all looks good print could be a go in the first week of June!

If we absolutely can't wait and purchase now, would we get a discount on the POD when it's released? My OCD demands that I get the both PDF and POD!

I have the same disease as Gordon C. Any ETA on a POD version?

It's running through the OBS proofing ringer, so 4-6 weeks more than likely.

Good news. We are about a week or two ahead of schedule and the proof is on the way. If all looks good print could be a go in the first week of June!

You very much should consider a quick conversion to Dungeon World, man!

Hmm, well that and DCC and 5e. In the hopper.

Does this mean you plan to do conversions?

@Carl - we're looking into the possibility, but conversions to any system would have to come after we complete some other projects on our plate.

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.
