Gunderholfen… Ancient, abandoned dwarf hold, battleground of arch-liches, cultist base, wizards’ playground, heroes’ bane and treasure-seekers’ tomb. Gunderholfen is a classic, old school exploratory sandbox-style mega-dungeon consisting of ten levels, a mini-campaign setting and one demi-plane.

This mega-dungeon and mini-campaign setting is designed for character levels 1-10+. It is compatible with any OSR system. Play it as an integrated, complete mega-dungeon campaign or just pick out individual levels to run as separate dungeons. Gunderholfen includes the following:

  • 10 main dungeon levels consisting of 22 sub-levels and numerous sub-areas, with approximately 930 keyed locations, all detailed in 40 maps.
  • 1 demi-plane level.
  • A mini-campaign setting insertable into any existing campaign that includes a detailed overview of Longfelt, a nearby city complete with NPCs, including possible patrons for PCs, places of interest, encounter tables and rival factions.
  • 32 encounter tables with full monster stats for each level of the dungeon and the surrounding lands.
  • Extensive ready to play lists of NPCs including 10 pre-generated NPC parties that can be used as foes or allies.
  • 1 mini-side adventure.
  • A brief overview of the history and background to Gunderholfen.
  • Rules for a new class of priest including 18 new spells.
  • Many new monsters and magic items.
Note: For ease of use during play, separate booklets for maps and encounter tables can also be purchased in both PDF and softcover formats.

JPEG maps for VTT play, with GM only information removed, can be viewed and downloaded at:

Will this book be available in print at conventions? I'd like to pick up a copy at North Texas RPG Con for review on my channel.

Thanks for your interest Glen, there will be some copies available at Garycon this year (Black Blade Publishing stall). Does that suit you?

Hey, Mr. Hawkins,

Great Job!!! I've just purchased the bundle and did a quick walk thru of the pdf. Love it! I would love to get on a mailing list for the possible Gunderholfen 2!! Can't wait to run this.

Just a quick note of a misprint. Under "Summary of Major NPCs", at the beginning of page 381, in the entry for "Segotha", one of the motivations says, "Finding Segotha and tormenting him . . .". Surely you meant to say, "Finding Sethid and tormenting him . . ."

Don't want to nitpick, but I just happened to catch this.

Thanks again for such a creative, extesive, and FLEXIBLE module!

Hi G.H., I bought this and love it. I was going to post a quick review on YouTube, but I saw you're updating the POD file right now. Would you rather I wait to post the video until the update has been made? Also, is there any big change to the content or was it just a superficial issue?

Hi Chris, thank you very much for your support. If you are planning to post a review on Youtube I would be very happy about it. After you post it let me know if you are happy for me to put in a link to the video. I am just making some very minor textual corrections; the contents remain unchanged, so there’s no problem with posting the video. I have to order another proof so the whole process takes a few weeks including shipping.

Sounds good. My video will be more of a quick look than a proper review and it likely won’t be very professional, but you’re free to post a link if you’d like.

I don’t know if you’re still making edits, but I think I may have found a small error on page 220 (at the start of Level 10). In the first paragraph, third sentence, it seems like the second reference to Nuurxiyed should be “Nalifixaad’s old chambers.” I could be wrong. Either way, not a big deal. That was the only thing I saw. You did a great job editing it. It’s really clean.

I’d love to see a vol. 2 someday like you hinted at, but I completely empathize with the constraint of work and family life.

Thank you, any review is always good. Thanks also for spotting the reference, I’ll update that. If able, I might put out some less lengthy stuff I’ve got in note form that details some of the other locations around Gunderholfen before deciding to put together the second half.

Thanks for this, I really appreciate you putting your own time and effort in for this. I've put the link in to the flip-through above.

Feel free to send a PM to the contact link above and let me know if you might be keen for some further material, and sometime in the future I might be able send you some other stuff I've been working on.

Good job with the blog as well.

Does this come with a set of player maps to use this with an online vtt without having to edit all the maps?

Hi Robert,

No I’m sorry there isn’t, I’ve never played using an online VTT so not sure what putting maps together for use with one would entail. If it’s not too difficult a process I might consider it.

It's just making it an unkeyed map, i.e. removing all the letters/numbers, trap annotations, secret door markers and "to level x" entries so that it can be displayed to players without giving anything away as you gradually reveal the map and move tokens around on it. Having them as separate jpg files with a decent resolution would also be very helpful as each map has to be put up individually.

If you did that as another map pack (or included that in the map pack), I would be happy to buy that. I picked up the pdf this morning and am really enjoying browsing it. It has a great OSR feel to it. I will be picking up the print version when I have the extra funds.

Thanks for the quick response and a great product!

Ok, I’d have see how long that would take me. I’m actually away on travel so I don’t have access to the files/my work PC for the next few weeks.
If time permits when I get back, I might be able to just send you some jpeg copies of the maps if that would help?

Thanks for the feedback on Gunderholfen.

Would it be possible to get you to send me a copy of those jpeg maps as well? I just ordered in pdf & print and that would help me get this on the table quicker.

Thanks for your support in purchasing Gunderholfen, much appreciated. I will think about putting up a link to either some JPEG map files or modified JPEG map files with some information removed (or I can possibly send them out). At present I don’t have the time to work on this, but I’ll try to get something together as soon as I can. If you are both happy with JPEG files without any of the information edited out, I can get that ready quicker than going through the files and removing secret doors, etc. which honestly would be a reasonably time consuming process. But for this you might just be able to use a snipping tool and take a JPEG screen shot from the pdf, though I wouldn’t know if the quality would be what you required.

Rob and Eugene,

I've put together some blank JPEG maps with secret doors, locked door notations, traps, room numbers and other GM only information removed. I hope this helps you out with running a game on a VTT. Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for making the maps available online. Just picked up the Print/PDF versions and have been enjoying reading the hard bound book. One of my groups plays solely online so the unkeyed digital maps are a big plus.

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.
