Rhapsody of Blood: Terra Incognita


"Terra Incognita is one of my all time favorite gaming objects [...] I have quietly spent many hours making Weird Castles with it." - Jeff Stormer, Party of One Podcast

Every generation, the blood moon rises and a nightmare castle from outside reality emerges to blight our world. But what form does it take? How does it corrupt the surrounding landscape? And how will the heroes fighting it back make their way through it?

Terra Incognita is a system for generating nightmare castles for players to explore, in the vein of Metroidvanias like Hollow KnightCastlevaniaLegend of Zelda and Hyper Light Drifter. Using a deck of cards and the book's prompts, you'll build up the castle's wards room by room, decide how they all link together, and what monsters command them.

This book was designed for use with UFO Press' Rhapsody of Blood, but the castles it builds can be dropped into your dungeon-crawling tabletop RPG of choice (or even used as the map for your own Metroidvania computer game!). With support for top-down and side-on maps, optional systems for locks and keys and havens scattered across the map, Terra Incognita is the castle-building tool you've been searching for.

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.
