Stjernheim: The Siege of Deepknell Hold

Selected Option:

A nordic fantasy sandbox adventure module for Vagabonds of Dyfed and other OSR games

  • New lineages and monsters for nordic fantasy
  • Full maps and illustrations
  • An entire adventure with over 30 pages of content

This is a nonlinear adventure module for Vagabonds of Dyfed, but is easily convertible to most OSR systems. It’s best suited for three or more low-level player characters, and can take upwards of ten sessions to complete, although expeditious groups could certainly complete it faster.

In this adventure, the PCs become entangled in a contest between three factions battling for control over an ancient and abandoned dwarven ruin: Svartalyd (which some translate as “deep sound” or “deep knell”). This adventure features giants, undead dwarves, ancient weapons of magical mass destruction, cabals of cannibalistic druids, political hate triangles, stranded wizards, fort sieges, and more.

Excited to read this. Really bummed the pdf does not include the amazing art of the blue giant backlit by the burning steading though :)

I'm hoping to run this with my group over VTT. Unfortunately, the maps in the PDF are low definition and look horrible with tokens on them. Is there any way that you could add VTT pngs of the player maps to the download? It would be a great tool for GMs looking to use this online during social distancing. Appreciate your consideration. I really like the adventure as presented.

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.
