The Sepulcher of the Burning King

Watermarked PDF

Long forgotten, the Mage King Althos, Lord of the Northlands, Vanquisher of the pagan hills, Destroyer of the Aberthine Demon was once a great hero in the land.  He wielded magic and a sword in powerful combination to drive out the forces of the Outer Darkness.  Tempted by the magic of nature, he stole the words from the priests of the Old Gods which would enslave a Fiery Spirit, binding it to Althos’ body.  He became the Burning King. 

 Dabbling in old magics took their toll on King Althos’ mind and, in the end, the Fiery Spirit took over and all but destroyed him.  In the end, he fell to St. Garamon the Pious’ sword and was buried in a secret vault, locked away in the Northern Tier of the Rosewood Highlands.

 The madness of the Fiery Spirit was such that it possesses the King even in death.

 The Sepulcher of the Burning King is a Highlands Location, found at Hex 5A in the Northern Tier Hexcrawl.  The Northern Tier is a sub-region of the Highlands. On the larger Rosewood Highlands map this region is just north and west of the city of Newtown, on the border between the Drummond Clan in the east and Great Oaks, the holdings of the Firbolg King, in the west. The Northern Tier covers the northern part of Hex E-4.

The Sepulcher should provide sufficient challenge and reward for a party levels 7-9, with a balanced mix of classes advised.  A cleric will be especially useful as a number of undead dwell in the depths of the Sepulcher.

Basically for Swords & Wizardry - our house ruled version... But anything based on the world's oldest RPG should work.

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.
