Sky ov Crimson Flame

Watermarked PDF

Sky ov Crimson Flame is a 0-level adventure for Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG:

Transcribed from the tattered pages of Sir Hooticus’ tome comes a new tale of adventure, sorcery and death! Our story unfolds with the sudden disappearance of the raven-haired beauty Belesa and soon turns to hysteria as others vanish from the small farming village of Reed. One by one, friends, loved ones and finally the children scream out in the dark of the night and are lost…

Now, as the Horned Moon rises, a thunderous sound ripples across the night sky and in its wake a falling Crimson Star ignites in the East! The village elders suspect the kidnapped have been taken to an ancient and vile Keep that lies hidden within the dreaded Eastern Forest, for they alone remember the old tales of screaming witch-lights that blazed and dance across the sky in times of yore!

Even now strange ululations cry out as fleeting shadows ride the wind. Who among you will brave the bowels of that foul Keep, where unspeakable horrors must surely await, in an attempt to save those that have been taken?

This adventure also features the 1st level mini-campaign Blights ov the Eastern Forest:

What is it that turns a land sour? What evil breeds and lurks under the dark boughs of the Eastern Forest, that has for generations cast a shadow of dread over the village of Reed. Is it possible a band adventurers, stout of heart, body and mind can put an end once and for all to the corruption that dwells there?

Blights ov the Eastern Forest sends your adventurers on a dangerous mission to cleanse the evil that spawns from the very roots of the wood, weaving a rich history that ties in elements of the previous adventure with a map, six new areas to explore and a bestiary of horrors to encounter! Walking into the forest is easy. It’s getting out alive that’s hard.

This could be a very good POD. Will this be a possibility in the next future?

Im a backer and have this adventure. It is high quality product- just as good as an DCC Goodman Games adventure. Plenty of art and hand-outs. Hals of the book is the main adventure, the second half is smaller side-treks and encounters with other weird legendary creatures. I highly recommend this book. Good stuff.

Love the cover art, love the title, and the whole vibe - including the idiosyncratic choice to go with "ov." Venger Satanis approves! I'll be picking this up when I have a chance to breathe again. There's a print-on-demand version in the works, I assume?

Much appreciated! Thanks! As far as print copies are concerned they can currently be pre-ordered at or you could email: owlknightpublishing AT gmail DOT com and receive a nice discount on the PDF. Print-on-demand through DTRPG is not currently in the works.

Nicholas C April 04, 2017 8:56 am UTC the use of "ov" instead of "of" in the title, and the accompanying text meant to to be satirical?? It's pretty grating if it is, and if not, then the proof reading clearly leaves a lot to be desired...

Excellent question friend! The use of "ov" is two fold really. First, it invokes archaic sensibilities. This is after all an adventure module set a long time ago, in a fantasy world far far away. Secondly, the adventure was written for Dungeon Crawl Classics, which in of itself hearkens a moody death metal ballad of old school role-playing. Many a "death metal" band, mostly those found in Europe, tend to use "ov" in place of "of" within their song titles. Being a 0-level adventure where many a player character will surely meet an ill fate I thought it justifiable to do the same in my title.

I hope this quells any fears you may harbor of proof-reading and take a gander at this fun piece of gaming literature!

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.
