Side Quests II: The Abandoned Dwarf Hold of Gundabar

Watermarked PDF

"Most of the thorp is delved into the sides of a rocky hill. From the road the two turrets of the gatehouse are carved from the rocky hillside and rise above it for a 360 degree view all around the area. The gatehouse has a large stout wooden door that appears to be locked and barred. A large iron door knocker hangs from one of the two doors.

It is governed by an arcane sorcerer, a male dwarf named Gari. Gari leads his small clan of dwarves who followed him back to their ancestral hold in order to recapture it from the Goblins and other evil creatures who over ran their ancestors many decades ago. The reconquest was going well when they ran into something they could not handle. Something was eating their kin deep in the dwarf hold and no dwarf who knows what lurks in the hold has survived to tell the tale of what lies in wait in the deep. Luckily for the dwarves there is an old fortified choke point between the cleared area that they inhabit and the rest of the abandoned hold. They hold the choke point against the occasional goblin incursion but the goblins have unknown numbers and an unknown ally powerful enough to destroy any dwarven incursion without leaving survivors."

The Side Quests pdfs provide GMs with interesting NPCs and locations to use with or against your player group. Side Quests can be interesting stops along the road or a one shot side quest if the full party isn't present for the evening of gaming. 

The pdf provides a brief description of a Town including tavern, meals and costs, patrons and some rumors, town goings on, any stores, brothels or other significant places of interest in town as well as a short adventure or dungeon crawl to fill a evening of gaming.

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.
