The Lost Crypt (Swords and Wizardry)

The Lost Crypt (Swords and Wizardry)


Written by veteran RPG scholar and scribe Bill Silvey, The Lost Crypt is an old-school style romp through an ancient tomb and hidden lairs filled with clever monsters. This is the Bill-created portion of a joint project with Gary Gygax, designed to be a challenge for veteran characters of 7-8th level.

A realm not terribly unlike our own exists in a strange and mostly-hospitable nearby plane of existence. While planar travel might overlook this small pocket of reality, an entrance into it exists at the deepest depths of the most storied dungeon complex in the known world.

To enter this planar region is to step into a world at once familiar and yet more bizarre than our own. Herein there are rumored to lie artifacts of great power, and treasure beyond imagination. Having explored the uttermost depths of the dungeon and found the entrance, a group of adventurers can make their way beyond the boundaries of reality itself in search of fame and fortune!

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.
