A20 Lair of the Shorlee Wyrm


This is the first in a series of adventures designed for traditional OSR games in the style of everyone's favorite because; hey, it's an OSR thing!  Each is open-ended enough for easy insertion into the referee's campaign setting while providing a complete scanario ready to play.  It's a great addition to any OSR campaign... 

Years ago, a dragon was slain in the Shorlee hills, or so said the one surviving warrior who made it back, only to succumb to his wounds before the morning came.  But the attacks ended, so it must have been true.  Dead men tell no tales, and the lone warrior died before revealing the location of the beast’s lair.  Who knows what riches it held; who can guess what treasures lay unguarded for the taking?  There is an old saying in Shorlee: riches lie not for long, and who knows what dangers – and rewards – await those brave enough to go in search of them, for the site of the old lair is forgotten no longer.  Its long-sought depths await the plundering hand of adventurers seeking their glory – or doom.  For lower-level adventuring parties.    

This adventure includes over 40 encounter areas, described in rich detail with notes for the referee to best challenge their group in old-school style.  But not all tests are martial, and the party will need to overcome the unique geography of the dungeon and the organization of its occupants.  Experienced players will also have to contend with an original monster beyond their knowledge, and the referee gets this and two new magic items to add to their roster of rewards for a job well done.  It's adventuring done the old-school way; a story the players bring to life because hey, it's an OSR thing!

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.
