Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition)


 That's "too long, did not read" in Torengur. And Icelandic, for that matter.

Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) is a mini-setting and adventure for the Dragon Heresy Roleplaying Game. Dragon Heresy is a self-contained complete game in one volume, and the Introductory Set covers Level 1-5.

In the Dragon Heresy Introductory Set, you will find everything required to create your hero, play the game, and challenge fearsome foes in this single volume, covering Level 1-5. The Dragon Heresy RPG is based on a modified version of Fifth Edition. It is available through the Gaming Ballistic web store only (, as the hardcopy went through a large offset print run and is not available via POD.

Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) contains

  • A non-linear adventure for 4-7 characters of Level 1-5
  • A detailed workup of the Viking-inspired town of Isfjall, suitable as either a home port for an extended campaign or a jumping off point for the adventure
  • Rules for overland journeys in the wild north, several adventuring locations, and of course the quest to rediscover the Lost Hall itself
  • A bestiary containing all the key creatures from the adventure, including the Dragon Heresy unique stats pre-calculated (Threat DC, Hit DC, wound and control thresholds, wounds, and vigor)

Foreword. Matt Finch, Frog God Games designer, publisher, and all-around great guy, is providing a foreword for the book. After so many fun ambush-interviews on Uncle Matt's D&D Neighborhood, I returned the favor and poked him for a few words.

Preface. Contains a brief discussion of the original volume and how it came to be.

Isfjall. An overview of the local geography and the situation that characters entering Isfjall will find themselves in upon arrival. Isfjall is described in enough detail to serve as a base for further adventures; Torengar is a place of constant strife and danger. This section has been added since the 1st edition.

The Journey. This section is broken out and expanded from the original volume. Random encounter tables, weather hazards, and other difficulties that arise when nature itself rises against you. Includes a table for generating weather and temperature, so nature can try to kill the PCs as well as the monsters.

Lögheimili Ruins. A dangerous place. Full of evil it is. In you must go. A micro-dungeon! You don't have to go in. But the undead are rising and threatening all of northwest Torengar, and the natural magic of Lake Odin is becoming unstable. 

Domstollinn. The core scenario. It is presented as a set of encounters that can be tackled (or not) in any order. Each might be a riddle, combat, or a physical feat. An encounter will include a set of Challenges, telling the GM what must be overcome, Concealed informationthat the players don't know initially, Alternatives that explore about ways to short-circuit, bypass, or otherwise not just Leroy Jenkins one's way through a challenge, and Rewards, where appropriate.

Goblin Warrens. Two additional micro-dungeons for the brave at heart to explore. More maps by Glynn! Fiendish traps in a faerie stronghold. The old kind of faerie, not the ones with puff-balls on their feet.

Bestiary. Each monster that may be encountered in the scenario is given a description, statistics, and combat tactics to make each one unique. Roughly 30 creatures are presented.

ENnie Gold-medal-winning Cartographer Glynn Seal has agreed to do the new maps if the Kickstarter funds at that level. This book is a combination of the work and improvements done on both the first edition as well as the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game version of the adventure, Hall of Judgment.

Zargothrax: The Dragon Heresy Introductory Set is indeed not available through OBS; I forgot that the links that go outside of the site are rendered non-functional. I'll change text to reflect that.

There's a S&W conversion page in the very back (page 103), which is not directly in-line of course. The 1st edition had stats in-line and these were removed for the Dragon Heresy version. I'll go back and remove the check-box; it's not "Swords & Wizardy ready" out of the box, but it can be (and I have run it) with those rules. Even so: it's less S&W friendly than the 1st edition was, so it deserves some redress, conversion guidelines or no.

"In the Dragon Heresy Introductory Set Bundle, you will find everything required to create your hero, play the game, and challenge fearsome foes in this single volume, covering Level 1-5. The Dragon Heresy RPG is based on a modified version of Fifth Edition. "
This is from the Gaming Ballistic website, which I had to search since there doesn't appear to be a Dragon Heresy on OBS, nor does the link "provided" in the description work.
I bring this up, of course, because I wonder where the Swords & Wizardry stats or mechanics appear in this product. I can't seem to find them in the preview. If in fact there are no Swords & Wizardry statistics, I would ask you to remove Swords & Wizardry and OSR from the rulesets this is for, otherwise one might constitute it as false advertising, or deliberate bait and switch. I'll assume the misclassification was not an intentional attempt to draw eyes of those shopping for OSR products with intent to offer something otherwise, and instead...See more

I've got one more thing I can/will do, but it's going to take a bit (days or weeks, not months or years), to help with the S&W-friendliness. Stay tuned.

I've removed the S&W logo from the back cover, updated the listing, and uploaded a new file with some typos and layout issues fixed. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

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.
