Wormskin Soon to Be Replaced by Full Campaign Setting Books
The Wormskin zine is a piecemeal exploration of Dolmenwood, and will soon be replaced by a full campaign setting in the form of three hardcover books: a player's book, a campaign book, and a monster book. Material from Wormskin will appear in the hardcover books in a revised and updated form, alongside reams of brand new material, forming a complete campaign setting of fairy tale magic and eerie folk horror. If you're new to Dolmenwood, we'd recommend waiting for the full campaign setting books, though collectors may wish to purchase the Wormskin zine issues in the meantime.

Almost All Content From Wormskin Available At Our Patreon
Backers of the Necrotic Gnome Patreon get access to the full campaign setting books in their current state of development. This currently includes almost all content from Wormskin, in a revised and updated form.

Wormskin Issue 7

  • d30 name generators for the most common Dolmenwood races (humans, elves, moss dwarfs, grimalkin, and woodgrues).
  • Henchman generator, including guidelines on hiring henchmen in Dolmenwood.
  • Descriptions of seven hexes to the east of the town of Prigwort, in central Dolmenwood.
  • Descriptions of seven hexes around the hamlet of Drigbolton, in the north.
  • Descriptions of seven hexes around the road from Lankshorn to Dreg, in the south.
  • Monsters of the Wood: antler wraith, audrune, crookhorn goatman, drunewife, giant snail, giant psionic snail, moss dwarf, witch, woodgrue.
Wormskin explores the mythic forest called Dolmenwood, a weird folklore setting for use with B/X or similar tabletop adventure games. Each issue uncovers various elements of this eldritch realm situated on the leafy verges of Fairy, where austere Drunes rub elbows with weird elf-lords and talking beasts, where witches wander skyclad and armed with sinister magicks to bind the spirits of hapless adventurers. Be wary.

I'm trying to download issue 7 and I keep receiving the following error:

FAILED - {"error":"The requested source file could not be found.: /data/rawpdfs/rpg/Necrotic Gnome/Wormskin_issue7_v1.pdf"}.

I tried to use the "Contact Us" link to let OneBookshelf know, but the the link doesn't open.

Hm, that's strange. Someone else reported problems with another PDF a couple of days ago, but I thought the problem was fixed by now. Downloading Wormskin 7 certainly works for me right now. I've also got a ticket lodged with OBS technical support, so hopefully the problem will be resolved soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!

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.
