Night of the Quacking Dead

Monster of the Month #3 — March 2020

Night of the Quacking Dead is designed to start you and your adventurers out on an adventure into the Upland Marsh, home of the infamous necromancer Delecti. This new bestiary entry includes:

  • Brief summary of the Upland Marsh
  • A scenario seed in which a new Sword of Humakt, Orlaventus Great-Bill, leads adventurers into the Upland Marsh
  • Description of three types of undead ducks—duck skeletons, duck zombies, and the awful duck goliath
  • Cover illustration sans logos, suitable for your coloring pleasure

Note: While this supplement can be used stand-alone, it is best used in conjunction with Chaosium's publication Wyrms Footnotes #15 and/or Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes.


"If you are running a campaign or adventure set in Sartar and are planning for your adventurers to venture anywhere near or in the Upland Marsh, then Monster of the Month #3: Night of the Quacking Dead is worth your time and interest. The Duck puns are just a bonus." — Pookie, Reviews from R'lyeh

About this Series: Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. In addition to statblocks and behavior, most entries will include supplemental detail and advice for gamemasters and/or new adventurer options for players.

Rule System(s)
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.
