The second issue of an irregular ‘zine for Crypts and Things, with content compatible with other Old School games based on 1st or Original editions.

monster for the game.

probably wish they hadn’t, at character generation.

Prince Ronas. A demonic Prince of an Other World, fit to become the characters’ latest

non-player characters to liven up otherwise dull and humdrum journeys.

to lie in its depths. A full Crypts and Things mini-module, usable with any OSR game, or even 5th
Edition with minor changes.

A Love Like Blood. How having a lover affects the character in the fine tradition of Swords

Hello there! This was the last product released for C&T I believe - and it was some time ago now.
Any update on "Under Dark Spires"? I can't wait to put my filthy tentacles on it.
Thanks in advance!

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.
