Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

This supplement is an exciting gateway to adventure in a newly discovered portion of my campaign realm, THE DALES, the ancestral home of the dwarves, gnomes and halflings in my world. In this 76-page tome you will find FOUR COMPLETE, exciting modules to challenge you and your players. Your group is going to be introduced to a variety of challenges, in a number of settings, requiring several different skill sets. There are battles for sure, but there are also puzzles, traps and thinking problems!

  • In Down the Wishing Well, the first module to introduce The Dales, you play a halfling character that has come of age and is being called down the wishing well by an ancient goddess.
  • In The Pumpkin Man the players take refuge at an old manor house, only to be called on to stand against an ancient fae fiend tormenting the family as part of an ancient curse.
  • Your players will be challenged to best the beasts and puzzles of an insane illusionist in Mad Madrigan’s Maze.
  • Lastly, in the adventure Return of Krampus, your players will be called on to defeat the demonic beastie Krampus, who has joined with a group of deep dwarves to attack a dwarven village and abscond with their bairns and a sacred hammer, forged by a god.

Inside this book you will find great Old-School art and completely detailed Old School maps, with detailed encounters for each area! This module also includes a detailed map of The Dales, done in the Old School style and complete with information on geography, local settlements, defenses, and areas for further exploration. This supplement also includes carefully PRE-GENERATED PLAYER CHARACTERS for use with each adventure! Each of the players is presented fully ready to play, with all of the necessary stats and gear. As a BONUS, these PCs are specially laid out so the GM can simply print out the page, cut out the characters sheets, and hand them out! Each player will be ready to go with their own handy mini character sheet! Lastly, this book includes 6 new monsters and 9 new magic items for your players to enjoy!

This book serves up 76 pages of action and excitement (At a full retail value of $32.50, for only $20!!), and it is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere!

As an ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get, ABSOLUTELY FREE, a copy of the inaugural issue of my Old School RPG zone, CAVALIER ATTITUDE!!

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.
