In ages long past someone built a barrow for a prince, and laid him to rest--or so they thought. The bodies of his wife and a few of his descendants found their way there as well before the barrow fell into disuse and was in time forgotten. And now, perhaps, after centuries have slipped by, the hour may have arrived for the prince to return, and with him relics of great power.

Set in the Known World--setting of the ARTESIA graphic novels and the novel THE BARROW--but suitable for use in almost any fantasy world with minimal adaptation, THE LAST BARROW details the paths to a hidden barrow mound, the stone circle that sits atop it, its various contents, and the dark presence that awaits within. It includes several appendices with statistics and suggested rules to allow use of the scenario with:

  • the ARTESIA: ADVENTURES IN THE KNOWN WORLD roleplaying game; 
  • the 5th Edition of the World's Most Popular Roleplaying Game (published as Open Game Content); and 
  • the current edition of RuneQuest from Chaosium. 

A digital art and map pack is also included as a separate download, for use as handouts to players.

Now available in both hardcover and softcover print editions!

You know, sending out discount codes *AFTER* loyal and eager customers have already ordered their POD is pretty crappy.

My apologies, when the POD became available I sent out discount codes to Patreon supporters and it just slipped my mind to send out discount codes for folks that had already purchased the pdf (there have been a lot of distractions this week). If you ordered the pdf and then ordered the POD separately, please feel free to email me at: and I can arrange a refund for the discount price.

Any chance those of us who bought this as a PDF can get a discount code to use to buy a soft or card cover?! Otherwise we are paying twice! Thanks, Edward

Hi Edward! Yes I can create a discount code for a reduced price on the printed editions for those that have already purchased the pdf, that should go out via email shortly. Thanks for picking up the pdf!

Coupon links for a discount off the print editions have been sent to customers that purchased the pdf before the print editions were available. If you have opted out of email notifications from DriveThru please PM me to get your coupon. Thanks!

Mark - met you at a convention years ago and bought two original art double-page pieces from Artesia series from you. I need to get a picture to you of them on the wall...still my favorite art I've ever bought. Any chance this item can be bought in print form? Hope you are doing well - thank you! Douglas

Hi Douglas! Great to hear from you. Yes, a print edition should be available soon, I've gotten in the proofs of the softcover version and am waiting on the proofs for the hardcover version (the mail is all messed up nowadays but should be getting here in the next week or so). Thanks!

Any chance of a printer friendly version?

Hi Paul, can you be more specific? I'm guessing what you mean is a version of the Art & Map pack without backgrounds, is that right?

Basically all the dark-coloured pages with light text (page 5 onward) don't print well and it is hard to read. It looks amazing on the screen though.

Yes, I can do that! I have to admit I was thinking mostly of digital presentations for online gaming during Covid. Should be up in a day or two.

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.
