The Tomb of the Forgotten Toad-People from the Planet of the Nameless Grimoire

Watermarked PDF

Chris at Hill Cantons recently announced another one of his famous contests. It was about cobbling together a random adventure, and it sounded like fun, so we entered the contest.

First we rolled on the cliche-driven Old School Module-Naming Tables at Hill Cantons and came up with the result: 'Tomb of the Forgotten Toad-People.'

Not too shabby. Nothing to necessarily get too excited about, but a nice start.

So then we rolled on Raggi's Weird Fantasy Module-Naming Table and produced the following result: 'Planet of the Nameless Grimoire.'

Mashing those two titles together we have 'The Tomb of the Forgotten Toad-People from the Planet of the Nameless Grimoire.'

According to the rules set forth at the Hill Cantons blog (see THIS post), we kept things to one page and we decided to use the free Swords & Wizardry (White Box) set of retro-clone rules for this particular experiment.

  • Just to keep it interesting, we incorporated a random sentence from the Random Sentence Generator that Porky mentioned in THIS post.
  • Since this adventure called for a Nameless Grimoire we incorporated the Nameless Tome from Old School Heretic as both an encounter and a possible treasure.
  • Since we rolled the 'Toad' result the first time out, we took it as a favorable omen and incorporated a faded-out version of our own little Toader-dude illustration into the background of the One Page Adventure.

And now, without any further to-do, here is our Adventure...

Product Information
File Size:
0.5 MB
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.
