Woodfall is a system neutral dark fantasy mini setting.

Explore a dark fairytale setting, wade through a misty swamp, get caught up in the fighting between warring monster clans, discover a strange town of witches and thieves, and search for forgotten treasure.

Woodfall is a swamp belonging to a king where witches, thieves and outlaws are squatting. They have built a town on top of the swamp and have resisted several evictions. The town is a hub for black market activity and magical folk

The surrounding forest and swamp is a hexcrawl filled with various monster factions.

The Setting has many political themes, influenced mostly from 15th-16th century European history but also includes contemporary political themes and satire. Woodfall village depicts anti-authoritarian peasants in revolt against a kingdom. Elements of influence are taken from :the German peasants war, the anabaptist's, the diggers (of the 1600's), the free miners in the forest of Dean, the history of the witch trails in Europe and history of squatting in the middle ages in Europe ( Tŷ unnos ). Woodfall village is thus a strange village that players might not have encountered much before in fantasy games.

Why is this no longer available POD?

Hi Garrett

Sorry about the POD being unavailable now. I am doing small print runs instead and stocking it at exalted funeral (and will be expanding to other retailers soon). As the print quality is much better this way, and its more profitable for me while being the same sale price.

I plan to eventually update this setting with a new version with loads of expanded content in the future as well - if you wanted to stay tuned in for that you can join my mailing list here: https://mailchi.mp/5033e9ac9cf7/lazylitchemaillist

thanks for the interest in this setting

I took a peek over at Exalted Funeral but could not find your work via search. I was looking for a hardcover of Windfall.

Hi Harold,
Thanks for your interest in Woodfall. The only print option available right now is the new softcover version at exalted funeral https://www.exaltedfuneral.com/products/woodfall
I plan on making a remastered hardback version in future with lots of extra content in it. But have a couple of other projects I am working on before that. If you wanted to stay tuned in for that you can join my mailing list here: https://mailchi.mp/5033e9ac9cf7/lazylitchemaillist

Been looking for a setting like this for a LONG TIME. Thank You! One question, what are monster cores (for the weepers) and where does one find them? I thought it might have been on pg 84 under orb materials but could not find it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Joe, I glad this setting was what you were looking for :)
Sorry for the slow reply I must have missed your comment last I checked on here.
The monster cores are single apple sized spherical stones found inside the bodies of magical creatures. The reason the idea is included is for monster hunting or craft materials. Players might be able to buy them on the black market although it can be easy to get scammed here unless players verify with detect magic that the core is authentic. They could also find one in a magical creature they kill, and then use that to fill the hole in the weepers chest.
Let me know if you have any other questions

Great work - am wondering which of the PDF's is the final copy to print? Assuming its WoodfallDigitalPDF-aftereditingfixs and Not Woodfallv2lossess? Will come follow your work.

Hi Justin, thanks for your interest in Woodfall

Sorry for the confusing file names, Drivethrurpg wouldent let me change them in the past. But I just checked and it let me update the names now.

If you want to print this book at home, then you should use the 'Woodfall-High-Resolution' file (previously Woodfallv2lossess) as this one has higher resolution images

'Woodfall' (Previously WoodfallDigitalPDF-aftereditingfixs) is the standard PDF for viewing on devices with normal screen resolutions

Let me know if you have any other questions

This looks great, and I noticed somewhere you mentioned doing premium version for kickstarter or something like that. Is that still in the works?

Hi Peter, thanks so much for your interest in Woodfall. Yes I plan on making an improved and expanded re-mastered version. I am working on the haunted hamlet and other hexes zine right now and then will be making another book - wrack of the wind wraith after that. Once both them projects are finished I will be working on the re-mastered version of Woodfall.

A great book, just left a 5 stars review. I firmly believe this is a lot more than an OSR sourcebook.
Btw, I would be reeeeally happy to see another system agnostic sandbox with a dark fantasy appeal! Your writing skills are insane and so are your abilities to keep things clear and manageable from a page count stanspoint!
Plus, the single column format with big characters is a huge addition. You rock. Gonna use this along with a narrative oriented game and it will be tons of fun!!
THANK YOU!

This looks like an amazing looking project.

Any chance you convert from hex to squares?

Hi Thanks Badgar
You are looking for a square grid map instead of a hex map?

No problem
It looked like there was actually a couple of artifacts in the map I made you, did not look at the pdf export properly. Here is a better export:
https://easyupload.io/09mrqe

And here is a player version : https://easyupload.io/xgui81

(I left the druid's house, the rotting mansion and the soldiers camp hex keys in there because generally the players would be aware of were all them things were from asking around in the crooked inn etc - although they would not know the bog witches live in the mansion - let me know if you want them keys removed as well for your game)

Do you have printer-friendly versions of these tables? May I have permission to get help, to make these printer friendly in a way that shares the document with a third party temporarily?
I am not able to drawn them out nicely and do not have the tools to do it myself via computer.

Shane W December 22, 2018 10:55 pm UTC

Sorry I did not see your comment sooner Elias.

I have created A4 print friendly versions of the tables for you and included them as a zip file. They should appear in your library under woodfall.

Let me know if I forgot any of the ones you wanted, or if you need help with anything else.
Also, if you don't like how I put them together and want permission to get help from someone else, thats no problem, go ahead.

Thanks for your interest in my project!

The preview image you seen is of an extra pdf for printing two map images I included. The preview function does not seem to be working for the first 10 pages of the book like it was before any-more. Thanks for pointing this out to me. I have contacted drivethru about this. In the mean time, you can preview the first 10 pages here : https://www.scribd.com/document/395191318/Woodfall-Preview

Format
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.
