"For a novice DM (young or old), this is an amazing resource…"

— on The Hidden Halls of Hazakor

The southern frontier is a land of bountiful farms and villages, where folk of different cultures live and work in harmony. But darkness can spread even beneath the brightest skies when the threat of the undead sends whole villages fleeing in terror in the night…

Darkmeade is a FREE adventure for fifth edition fantasy roleplaying, written with a special focus on young Gamemasters of ages twelve and up. This one-shot adventure can be played as a sequel to The Hidden Halls of Hazakor and a prequel to the upcoming Mystery at Millwarren. Both those books are written in a friendly and straightforward fashion for new and beginning young GMs, offering not just a fun adventure but plenty of tips and advice on running great games.

Scott Fitzgerald Gray (9th-level layabout, vindictive neutral) is a writer of fantasy and speculative fiction, a fiction editor, a story editor, and an editor and designer of roleplaying games — all of which means he finally has the job he really wanted when he was sixteen. His work in gaming covers three editions of the Dungeons & Dragons RPG, including working as an editor on all three core rulebooks for fifth edition D&D. He’s written and edited upwards of two hundred books, adventures, and articles for Wizards of the Coast, Schwalb Entertainment’s Shadow of the Demon Lord, Sly Flourish, Gamehole Publishing, Green Ronin, Frog God Games, and others, as well as producing adventures and gaming supplements under the Insane Angel Studios imprint.

Jackie Musto is a comic creator, illustrator, and educator. She’s been working for nearly a decade creating fantastical worlds, daring adventurers, and monstrous beasts, and spent her childhood lost in roleplaying worlds and games. While playing tabletop games as a teenager, her career path was decided — she wanted to be the person who drew the amazing illustrations that brought those games to life! Now it’s her pleasure to fulfill her dream and help other young folks get entranced and creative with their own ideas and stories. Her webcomics Kay and P (the story of a girl whose best friend is a skeleton) and The Adventures of Lady Skylark (a sky pirate adventure) can be found online.

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.
