What happens when a demon dies?
Oozing, scalding, deathblood floods the land, cursing it forevermore. Every seventeen years, the blood moon rises and the Fog Beast beckons villagers into the Shrouded Fen; those that follow never return. Now you have been chosen!  Seeking ancient ruins, vast treasure, and arcane lore, you plunge deep into the mist-laden swamp. Plants impale corpses ravaged by man-eating birds, while specters of past victims roam the blood-cursed land. A mysterious floating portal defies entry, though the bog’s hidden artifacts are rumored to provide the key. Can you solve the riddles of the swamp and escape from the Shrouded Fen? 

A 112 page digest-sized DCC adventure from Terry Olson that contains:

  • A 0-level funnel...
  • ...Leading into a deadly 1st-level sandbox sandbox adventure
  • Incredible artwork from Benjamin Marra, and maps from Dyson Logos!
  • A host of random encounters and events to keep things interesting!

Gotta love drivethrurpg... All those amazing products you can never order in physical because the bleeding things cost 10-12 bucks and shipping is another 18.

Ahhhhh....Purple Sorcerer makes my money....disappear! I love this stuff.
If I buy the soft cover- do you still get access to the pdf of handouts & extras?

If you buy only the softcover, then you don't have access to the pdf of the adventure, but you *do* have access to the printable appendix (the handouts and extras) from the Purple Sorcerer website here:
However, currently, you can have access to both the softcover and the pdf of the adventure for just $1 more than the softcover alone. Regardless, thanks for your interest!

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.
