In the Shadows of Giants: Adventure Campaign for Dungeon World


Torr shook the snow from his jagged, curled horns like an overgrown goat as he slogged his way through the knee-deep drifts of snow... He hadn’t been to Jötunheim in an age, though his plodding steps were steady and if he felt any hesitation, he didn’t show it in his gait.  Skirmishes between Jötnar clans weren't abnormal, per se, but he felt sure this was something more complex than simple territorial struggles...

Created for The Wyrd of Stromgard supplement but able to be played in any Dungeon World setting, In the Shadows of Giants is a detailed, three act Adventure Front  set in high Norse myth and will have your PCs trying to facilitate peace between ambitious and powerful Jotnar clans where any misstep could have disastrous, bloody consequences.

Champion the voice of the Jotnar in their fight for freedom from divine rule or play them to the favor of the gods.  It's up to the party of course, but one wrong move or could have far reaching and devastating consequences.  Players will need to leverage their might and wits to gain the trust of the Jotnar and the clout to make leaders listen.

This Campaign includes:

  • Light narrative context + information about myths and Jotnar
  • Narrative introduction
  • 3 Distinct Acts that each contain:

- Danger

- Impulses

- Major Forces

- Impending Dooms

- Grim Portents

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.
