The Well is an original tabletop roleplaying game about exploring the abandoned crypts of your people's ancestors, putting down the undead abominations that have risen from their remains, and escaping with as much loot and as few scars as possible. It's a classic dungeon delver with modern RPG sensibilities, an original, light-weight game designed for speed and narrative integration. The system gives players options without complication and lets them fear for their characters without taking away control over their characters' fates.


The title refers to the Well, a massive shaft of emptiness pointing straight down, one hundred meters in diameter and ringed on the interior wall by a helical stairway that climbs into the black reaches above and recesses below. Every one-third rotation around the Well, massive double doors open outward into currently or formerly inhabited tunnels. People live in Bastion, the Last City, through one set of those doors. When the city empties the stone and soil of resources, and when generations of entombed dead fill the halls, the people migrate downward and carve a new home out of the rock. They've done it dozens of times over hundreds of years. Above them, some evil force animates the honored dead, turning them into murderous monsters and abominations until they threaten to overwhelm the city.

That's where gravediggers come in. Where YOU come in. Something sets you apart from everyone else. Bravery? Desperation? Your obsession with searching for what's really up there, in the past we think we've buried? Whatever it is, every couple weeks, you gather your gear and your friends and head up the Well. You're looking for unlooted crypts and unbroken tombs, places with enough danger to escape alive and enough loot to make it pay.

Welcome to The Well, a roleplaying game of exploring dungeons, finding treasures, and collecting grievous wounds.

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.
