I hope this module sparks your interest and curiosity for Japanese folklore, mythology and history.

- Sincerely, Emanuele Galletto.

"A very good and scary adventure in an unusual setting. [...] The layout and the art are excellent, too." - Umberto P.

The Year is 1564.

A group of Western explorers reach Japan on board Portuguese vessels, lured by the promise of adventure, fame, and riches. What awaits them on the ghastly island of Takashima, however, is a much darker tale...

Grudge Immortal is a fantasy-horror adventure set in Sengoku era Japan, and deeply rooted in historical and literary research, as well as my love for Japanese horror. Contrary to most "oriental adventures", this module is designed around a group of western PCs, barely knowing the local language and unfamiliar with the land and its customs. The book's introduction covers the historical setting and premise, which means you don't need to be a Japanese history nerd to actually run this thing.

It is a full-color, 40 pages module fit for a group of 2nd level characters. I have playtested this with groups of 2, 3, and 4 players: the two-players group was the only one to survive.

The adventure is written for compatibility with Lamentations of the Flame Princess, but you should be able to run it with most OSR rulesets!

Note: this adventure contains several elements that some players and Referees might find uncomfortable, including gore, violence, and implied violence on children.

Sadly, I cannot assure it. The DriveThruRPG printing service doesn’t really fulfill my expectations when it comes to a full color book like this one, which is why I’m in the process of researching different options. I might find a way to do things properly, or simply wait until later.
The book would look good in print, but I want to give it the kind of care it deserves!

Have you thought about using Lulu? Their print quality normally surpasses DriveThruRPG's from what I've heard and experienced.

I've heard that too, but then again I've heard of the opposite from some people. As soon as I get a chance to clear a bit of my schedule and my health gets better, I'll look into it!

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.
