The Drowned Lands

Suggested Price $2.00

The Shadow of R'yleh Looms

A thousand years have passed since Great Cthulhu stirred in His slumber and drowned the kingdoms of the world beneath the waves.

But for those who survived, the horror had only begun. And for their descendants, there would be nothing but darkness and the unceasing rain...

The Game

THE DROWNED LANDS is a roleplaying game for 3 or more players set in the apocalyptic Age of Cthulhu. Create a ruin delver and venture into the crumbling bones of the old world in search of precious relics and weird artifacts. But beware: death, madness, and corruption come quickly beneath the watchful gaze of the Great Old Ones and their servants.

Featuring a simple 3d6 "roll under stat" rule system where a character's skills allow them to reroll dice, the game also incorporates a fast-paced auto-hit combat system derived from games like Into the Odd and Electric Bastionland. All you need to play is a set of dice (1d4, 3d6, 1d8, 1d10, 1d12, 1d20).

Characters possess a special background that provides them with a unique ability that allows them to carry out their role as part of a delver team. Relics and magic involve the manipulation of "Aeon energy," which can potentially corrupt those who tap into it too frequently. The game uses an open-ended spellcasting system involving the recovery and recitation of ancient texts. 

This 140+ page, fully-illustrated rulebook contains all the rules you need to create characters suitable for the Drowned Lands of Kharizorn as well as some basic setting information and examples of horrors delvers may encounter in the deep, forgotten corners of the world.

Beware It's only a barebone rpg, don't believe the 140 pages counter, the truth is that that most of the space is emptiness covered by some vaguely evocative drawings and colours. By itself it's not a bad game, there is good ideas but it [...]

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.
