Ulric's Little Descriptive of The Royal Road – Somewhat Optimized for Dungeon World

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to ancient Kesteva, adventurers!

What is Kesteva? It’s an immersive, highly detailed RPG world perfect for adventuring. The world gets its name from an ancient kingdom founded by Aelfric & Aelin and their followers, who fled the Old World over the Gray Mountains into their new land.

Kesteva is immersive … because of course it’s all true, based on historical records brought into our world through a multidimensional door* discovered by an anonymous former newspaper Editor in a fog-shrouded Midwestern town. The record is incomplete (though growing), which also makes it perfect for Dungeon World adventures**.

Packed with tips, lore and scraps of legend, this gaming aid is a translation of an original Little Descriptive produced by Ulric of Skara’s copyhouse! Print it on two sides of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet and fold it just like the original version.

The original was brought into our world through a multidimensional door* discovered by an anonymous former newspaper Editor in a fog-shrouded Midwestern town.

The download also includes Gamemaster Notes that give background and tips for adapting the contents for Dungeon World. Inside, find:

  • An overview of The Royal Road, the thousand-mile highway through the ancient kingdom of Kesteva
  • A useful table of typical travel times
  • Historical notes
  • Adventure hooks, including Highwaymen, Courier and Private Investigation

Use Ulric’s Little Descriptive of The Royal Road as a gaming aid or as inspiration for your own Dungeon World adventures! Great steading, great adventuring!

*Which is why we trust the veracity of the Editor’s texts. Who would lie about a multidimensional door?

**Draw maps, leave blanks is the first principle of Dungeon World

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.
