"Beneath challenges the conventional idea of the 'Dungeon crawl' in so many ways and succeeds in them all. It is radical yet well crafted, it is shocking yet thought provoking, it is familiar yet intensly Alien. If roleplaying is a Tree with all the various games and genres spreading out from it, then 'beneath' is one sick and twisted branch that waits for all brave travellers who dare to tread their foot upon."  Jay of Colosseum Rex (U.K.)


"Beneath as a series is doing so much to reinvent what it means to be a prewritten adventure module. But Beneath isn’t just a few module books, it’s a living document full of unexpected messed up stuff and amazing artistic expression. You’ll feel like you’re talking to real people when you’re talking to the NPC’s. So strap in, and let’s get salty." Zach Benge of Tabletop Radio Hour


"Beneath is a return to that thing that made gaming cool in the 80s, it's dangerous and brutal, yet modern in it’s approach to subtext. A unique, grotesque, disturbing work that is entertaining and well crafted. A horror crawl that examines the topics of self absorption and the dangers held within. Your table deserves this experience and the sequel that follows." Emanuel James Miller, Owner, Crit Hit Conventions


"Beneath masterfully blends narrative, adventure, combat, and character involvement. A dark tale that left our group massively satisfied." The Inner Gamer


"I've never seen anything like this on an RPG level and I think it's f*cking rad."Full Metal RPG / Podcast

I bought the print version of this, but it doesn't have page numbers. There are parts of the text that reference page numbers though, so it is hard, VERY HARD, to actually use this book.

Just a heads-up for those that may want to print this off...YOU CAN'T.

This should have been part of the product description.

Sorry about that. We didn't realize we had that option clicked. You can print it now :)

The description of this product interested me, it sounded like a fun dungeon romp. The stuff in the preview introduction about gender roles however seems to indicate the opposite, that the adventure is intended to be social commentary. Which is it?

HI! All the stats are very generalized -- "Armor equivalent to chainmail" and "D8 for this weapon" and "Speed 8" so I believe you can use any D20-based system with Beneath.I wrote it with a LOT of leeway for the GM. There's also a Beneath breakdown on the Severed Books website (on the Beneath page).

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.
