Adventures in Great Lunden

Selected Option:

This book is an expansion to The City of Great Lunden. This itself is part of The Midderlands - An OSR Setting & Bestiary and The Midderlands Expanded setting.

Important Note:

  • Contains Strong language & Graphic Descriptions
  • Written for use with the Swords & Wizardry Complete roleplaying game, but suitable for any Old-School or retroclone roleplaying game.


A selection of content to supplement
The City of Great Lunden city setting book for the Gold ENnie Award-winning 'The Midderlands'.

Adventures in Great Lunden is a collection of adventures and rules for The City of Great Lunden city setting for use with old school roleplaying games. It is designed to be used alongside The Midderlands setting and hence is 'The Midderlands Compatible'. Game stats are presented for use with Swords & Wizardry Complete, which means they are easily adopted for old school games/retroclones. Much of the content is designed to be as system-neutral as possible, so feel free to use it with any fantasy game system you like.

This book DOES NOT require The Midderlands setting, but it is greatly enhanced with it. There might be references to things found in the other books. Don't worry if you don't have those previous settings books, you can still get them here.

This fantastic addition to The City of Great Lunden setting contains adventures, a short story, optional rules, etc.:

  • Lunden Above, Gardeners Below - A short story following The Gardeners of Walshale on a mission into the fetid sewers of the city.

  • Changing of the Guard - A religious artefact has gone missing and suspicion lies with the ward's Peekers.
The Golden Bar of Clopetra - A heist adventure to steal the Golden Bar of Clopetra and put Miles Farthing out of business.

  • Curse of the Ghostly Gripe - Rumours of a ghostly sewer gripe are circulating and with panic rising, help is needed.
Ullasar's Necklace - The owner of the Lucky Bazaar has had a valuable item of jewellery stolen and he wants it returned.

  • The Wayward Sons - An adventure crawl around the city hunting for clues to Michael Mackey's lost inheritance.
The Ginger Clipper - Discover the identity of the 'Ginger Clipper' terrorising Netherwark ward by shaving innocent red-headed folk.
Optional rules for street and sewer adventures.
  • Additional oddities and urban legends.

Happy New Year and thanks for all the great work! Is this title meant to be included in your 50% off sale for New Years?

Thank you, Brian! Happy New Year!
It is indeed in the sale, but for some inexplicable reason it's just not applying the 50% discount to that item (and the Rivers & Lake supplement). I'm not sure why, so I'll have to ask Publisher Services (although they are off until the New Year now).
I've dropped it a couple of £ in the interim.

Hi there,

Many thanks for your comment.
None of the content in this books appears in the 5E Midderlands book from Necromancer Games. The 5E book is basically the first Midderlands book (without the playable class elements) which is for the Swords & Wizardry/OSR system:

The Midderlands is the first book and contains the localised setting area called the Midderlands. This is the only book that has so far made it to a 5E conversion (via Necromancer Games).
The Midderlands Expanded is the second book and details the wider lands of the Haven Isles.
The City of Great Lunden is the third book, and details the capital city of the Haven Isles, Great Lunden.
This book (Adventures in Great Lunden) is a series of adventures set within The City of Great Lunden, so having that book is very useful.

I hope that is helpful.
Many thanks,

Hi, when I try to order the softcover book, I end up with the PDF in my cart (which I already have).

Not a problem anymore, sorry for the false alarm.

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.
