Greetings adventurers and Game Masters! 

I am very happy to announce release of “CAVERNS OF CALAMITY: GOBLIN’S RAGE”. This introductory level module is the second in a series of three interconnected adventures intended for neophyte adventurers of levels 1 to 3.

Synopsis: In this adventure your players will be employed by the Gnomish Advanced Research Institute (G.A.R.I. for short), an inventor’s organization. They are tasked with the search for and recovery of a rare mushroom from the other side of the known world.

The black market sellers of this rare botanical treasure (rumoured to be a pinkish-white fungus with red “blood” drops which ooze from its cap, known as the “Devil’s Tooth”) were intent in keeping their identity a secret. Unfortunately for them, once this exotic plant came to the attention of the ever inquisitive and highly resourceful gnomes they quickly discovered (through diligent sleuthing, liberal bribes and much snooping) the source of the fungi: a set of caverns in the far southern foothills of Dùn Loachas. An expedition team of G.A.R.I. researchers was organized swiftly and set off in search of these botanical rarities, but they never returned!

Unbeknown to the gnomes, their expeditionary team was walking into the dragon’s den! For the cavern was guarded by a pack of bloodthirsty humanoids, intent on keeping this valuable prize to themselves. They slew some of the gnome researchers and captured others, in hopes of quashing any outside knowledge of their valuable. 

So the gnomes have turned to professional adventurers to save the day. They gnomes need the players to investigate the caverns, recover the plants they need for their research, and find and rescue members of the prior expeditionary force, if at all possible.

Are your players up to the challenge?

In the initial adventure in the series (SO18 KOBOLD'S FURY) the party went up against a den of kobolds to secure a rubber plant and rescue one of the gnome researchers -- in this installment they will face stronger foes when they invade a cavern complex full of goblins and bugbears! These fearsome foes occupy a set of caverns and the remains of an ancient cult shrine which lay further up the cliffside from the kobold den explored last time.

This adventure is written to be compatible with OSRIC (& other OSR games), and useable with most fantasy ruleset. While written as the second in a series of adventures, it may also be run as a stand-alone adventure; there is guidance throughout the module on how the GM may run it in either mode (stand-alone or series). The “CAVERNS OF CALAMITY” series will conclude in the upcoming module “SO20 ORC’S WRATH” (October 2020). 

As an added bonus, your purchase includes the standard version and the original BANNED version! "BANNED VERSION", you say? Yup, I pulled a Roslof and the powers that be here at Starry Knight Press DID NOT approve of the more gratuitous cover & the spicy image in the ad copy! So the original got recalled & I re-did it. But now you get BOTH versions!! 

SO19 Banned version

PLUS you get a free copy of my 2020 Starry Knight Press Catalog, which has information on all of my modules and supplements, as well as maps of the known portions of the sphere of Terrans where my campaigns take place.

I hope you and your players enjoy this adventure, and that you enjoy all three installments of the “CAVERNS OF CALAMITY” series! Thank you for supporting Starry Knight Press!

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
File Size:
60 MB
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.
