Mines, Claws & Princesses

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

     The groom is dead, the bride Sunnhild taken. Men rave in pain whilst their women wail in sorrow. Blood mixed with tears, the chieftain Erfried cries out “Only you are left who can hold a sword. Go now. The orcs ride to Sanjikar and you must follow.”

     This adventure offers high-fantasy heroics for a party of 2nd-4th level. From the orc redoubt, to the slime caverns of the trogs, the cursed remains of the dwarven stronghold to the dragon down below; A 75 room dungeon, town and story in 48 pages. I am but a humble dungeon merchant and I hope you like my wares.


Non-sexual nudity present in adventure


"As with all of my “best” reviews, I’m just going to rant some in a nigh incomprehensible manner over how good this is."

~Age of Dusk

"Mines, Claws and Princesses is pure unadulterated oldschool goodness of sanity-shattering proportions that eclipses all limp-wristed, droopy-eyed successor modules that pass for official DnD in this sanitized age. I don’t care what you run this thing on: 5e, 1e, 3e, fucking Polaris for all I care. This is a winner."

~ Wizards Laboratory
Mines, Claws, and Princesses” by Oswald Publishing is one of those pure dungeon crawls from when I used to play way back in the 1980s and 1990s. That’s the joy of this throw back dungeon crawl.

Having skimmed the module, and read both Chris’ and Bryce’s review. I can say (a) happy the module gets to the point quickly, (b) appreciate all the good things said about it in terms of ideas, and hooks, by Bryce and others, but (c) think Chris makes fair comment about this not being necessarily suitable for younger or more sensitive audiences. The only point for improvement would be advisory up front perhaps — though the excellent preview should make it quite clear on reading who its for, and who it is *NOT* for. Otherwise thats what good reviews from both sides of the OSR line are for. And (d) I got the module, because I can use 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.
