Torchbearer Sagas: The Vagrant's Guide to Surviving the Wild

Watermarked PDF


The Vagrant’s Guide to Surviving the Wild is a Torchbearer RPG supplement for travelers in the wilderness. The nearby ruins are now emptied—picked clean by freebooters and ne’er-do-wells who improved their lot with plundered treasure. If you’re going to join their ranks, that means finding loot that nobody’s gotten to, and that means you’ve got a long slog ahead of you.

The Vagrant’s Guide contains:

  • A highly-detailed new conflict for overland journeys: The Expedition
  • Four new character classes destined for life on the road
  • Mounts and pack animals with a mind of their own
  • New containers, gear, weapons, armor, vehicles and spells
  • Nine far-flung new settlements, complete with town phase maps
  • Over 200 menacing threats to harry your adventurers
  • 17 new full monster stat blocks, including trainable gryphons and drakes
  • 20 weird and wondrous magical items
  • And a sample adventure, Cake for the Countess, to tie it all together!

Now updated to include the Delver's Guide to Surviving the Underworld, an expansion to the Vagrant's Guide rules by Jared Sorensen of! Delver's includes:

  • The madcap Kobold Breacher class
  • Subterranean Beasts: the cave spider, dire beetle and riding bat
  • Two new destination settlements: Kobold Mining Camp and Dark Elf Grotto
  • New skills and special new lighting gear: the candelabrum
  • A new territory for expedition conflicts: Cavernous Underworld

Yes, we have a limited print run as a part of the Kickstarter. Once all the backers are fulfilled, we'll be selling copies direct from the site — probably late spring or early summer if all goes well.

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.
