A Live Action Disaster Adventure Movie

You have heard the many legends of the Dungeon of Doom, the fabled treasure trove of traps and monsters. Many adventurers go in, but none have ever returned.

Your merry band of low-level adventurers have met in a tavern near the high wastes, across the barren plain, and just past the crags of terror that house the Dungeon of Doom. Your goal? To be the first to go in, grab the loot and get out with your skins intact.

You will then be able to retire in fame and glory!

No really, you'll totally survive! 

The Dungeons of Doom is a (punny) standalone Scenario of Dungeon Delving Mayhem for A Grandiose Disaster, and requires that game to play. Click here to check it out!

A Grandiose Disaster is a Live Action Roleplaying Game where you play out your own character-centric disaster/horror movie! Using a set of structured scenarios, anywhere from 6 to 12 players play archetypical characters run through the wringer of the disaster. Who will you try to save? What choices do you make to survive?

Who lives, and who dies?

The Dungeon of Doom and A Grandiose Disaster are both written and designed by Mike Young, and published by ndpdesign.

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.
