Stairway of V'dreen

Watermarked PDF

Players, you're going to want your GM to run this for you because this module gives you the chance to create your own magic item - near infinite variations!

GMs, you're going to want to run this module because there are tables for rolling up bizarre monster combos to ruin the players' day - nearly an infinite variety!

I've done a lot fantasy - dungeoncrawl, hexcrawl, weird fantasy, science fantasy, dark fantasy, Lovecraftian fantasy... with Stairway of V'dreen, I wanted to create more of the same while attempting to capture something different, so I went with conceptual.  It's difficult to explain and I don't want to give any spoilers away.  I think you'll be pleased, though.  

Along with the scenario details, I've included some cool monsters, NPCs, magic items, and random tables that can be used with the fantasy RPG of your choice.  In fact, a couple of these tables allow DMs to have virtually unlimited magic items and monsters!  This scenario is for mid to high-level characters.  

Stairway of V'dreen was meant for Crimson Dragon Slayer (either version).  Crimson Dragon Slayer is like your typical OSR, but with d6 dice pools.  Might sound imcompatible, but I assure you their similarities are greater than the differences.

If it looks awesome, reads awesome, and plays awesome, then chances are it's from Kort'thalis Publishing!

A review. Content 3/5 Like so many of Kort’thalis Publishing’s products, Stairway packs an optimal amount of adventure hooks and encounters in a minimum of space, cleverly leaving a fair amount of work up to random [...]

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.
