Best Left Buried: Cryptdigger's Guide To Survival


There are things that dwell in the Crypt, and some are Best Left Buried

Best Left Buried is a fantasy horror game where the monsters are scary and the players are scared. Within the Crypt, these adventurers will be beset by strange monsters, bizarre environments and eldritch magics, which will take them on their journey from fresh faced recruits to grizzled survivors.

Within its 100 pages, this book contains all the basic rules you need to run the game for both the players and the Doomsayer. Inside are the rules for making characters, as well as the monsters and magics used to challenge both their minds and bodies.

Best Left Buried products are available in print from Melsonian Art's Council or Exalted Funeral, as well as other good RPG stores. Grab us at, our website at or contact Zach on twitter at @JellyMuppet for more details.

This product was updated and remastered in February 2021 as part of the Best Left Buried: Deeper Kickstarter, to include tweaked and updated rules, new art and re-optimised layout.

Best Left Buried products are available in print from the SoulMuppet Store.

Is there an errata for the book? Or plans for updating the files?
It seems that there are some places where the text is messed up. Eg. Fire and lightning strange description on page 60.

Other then that, it looks great so far (I'm almost done reading).

Any possibility of POD? Print copies seem to be sold out everywhere.

Is this enough to play the game both sides (GM / Players)? Thanks!

While it contains all the rules you need to play the game, we do have a separate book 'The Doomsayer's Guide to Horror' that is meant to act as a true DMG equivalent.

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.
