LORDS OF OLDSKULL - Book I - Krampus

Watermarked PDF

As cav’lier golems march and wheel,

In tiny danse of death and holm

And arc their blades of mint and bone

To tinkling chaunt of glockenspiel;


And from the shadow’s watching wall?

Krampus sighing, claimeth all.

See his sorrowed eyes abright,

Bells a-tinkling in the night;


Sixty-six the bells they are,

Shiv’ring silver-bright I see:

Bell woven to brimstone, beard, and mane,

Regardless of thy slumber feign’d.


From the wintery shadows He comes, and when he sings, none dare keep their most forbidden secrets from his clutches …


Are you looking for something a little different to spice up your old school RPG campaign for Halloween and Christmas?  Would you like to scar your players for life?  Add a little Krampus and all his festive nightmares to your game!

This deluxe mini-supplement (43 pages, 6,400 words plus license) features full stats on Krampus the demon lord, his rituals (randomized magic powers for every visitation), tactics, weaknesses, and eerie magic items.  The second half is devoted to the Winterbringers, a secretive cabal of Chaos priests whose powers focus on charm, temptation, ice, madness, and night terrors.  Best of all, both of these systems are Open Game Content, fully formatted for compatibility with Swords and Wizardry and other OSR and retroclone gaming systems.  You’re free to use Krampus and all the Winterbringers in your own diabolic adventures and supplements ... with proper credit, of course.

KRAMPUS represents the first in a series of LORDS OF OLDSKULL, turning the most haunting mythic beings of legendry into swords-and-sorcery gaming reality.  There’s many more to come … but why save the best for last?  Happy nightmares before Christmas!

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.
