Happy Halloween! From now through November 2nd, this digital title has been marked down by 25%! For more spooky savings, visit our Halloween sale page.

There are things that dwell in the Crypt, and some are Best Left Buried

Best Left Buried is a fantasy horror game where the monsters are scary and the players are scared. Within the Crypt, these adventurers will be beset by strange monsters, bizarre environments and eldritch magics, which will take them on their journey from fresh faced recruits to grizzled survivors.

This is a supplement for the main game, adding 30 pages of additional content to create more varied and powerful characters for Best Left Buried. It contains content found in the Deluxe Edition print version of the game.

Inside is:

- Arcane, Devious, Holy and Martial advancements unlocked in high level play. 

- 3 non-human Archetypes: Elves, Dwarves and Small Folks, and a short list of 6 new Afflictions for them.

- Tables for random character generation

- The same main rules for Advancements and Character Creation found in the Cryptdigger's Guide to Survival, so you don't have to flip between 2 PDFs while building a character.

While the Advanced Character Options contains lots of new content, this book won't make too much sense to you unless you own a copy of the Cryptdigger's Guide to Survival, which you can find either in PDF on DriveThruRPG or in print on other good RPG stores.

Best Left Buried products are available in print from Melsonian Art's Council or Exalted Funeral, as well as other good RPG stores. Grab us at, our website at or contact Zach on twitter at @JellyMuppet for more details.

I have a question about when characters can take the "specialty" advances. At the beginning of the section on advances it says...

"Once a character

has taken at least 4 advancements in

total, including 2 Journeyman

Advancements from one certain

type, they gain access to a special list

of Advancements for that type"

(on p. 19)

But then for example in arcane advances it says...

"Once the character has taken 3

Arcane Advancements and 4 total

Journeyman Advancements, they

become a Titled Wizard and gain

access to the following additional


(on p. 26)

But this number (3) is the same for marital, holy and devious.

So is this a TOTAL of 4 advances of which 2 (or 3?) are from a specific class allow the "special" advances for that class?

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.
