WARNING: This book involves significant body horror elements and may not be suitable for players sensitive to such content.

Once, this backwoods town only whispered about the sordid histories of its rare newcomers and the abundant setbacks of its long-time residents. But a brilliant flash in the sky a few nights back has brought new topics to the hushed tones of worried recluses and nosy neighbors: odd shapes along the treeline, mysterious lights deeper within, and notes pleasant to the ear dancing on the wind. You’ve heard more enticing rumors, though, those of priceless gems unlike any other, ripe for the taking, and your thoughts can’t escape the tinge of colors you’ve never witnessed before, strange but welcoming, emanating unseen from the woods that were once your childhood playground…

The Pried Eye is a one-shot adventure for Jesse Ross’s Trophy Dark in which the crash of something spectacular and indescribable in the backwoods of rural 20th-century America will lead to the players hunting for otherworldly gems, hoping to seize their independence and break free from their small town’s lack of opportunity. A tense and eerie descent into body horror, cosmic weirdness, and ego-murder focusing on the theme of communion, this book contains all of the rules you need to play, including all-new character creation options.

Theme: Communion

The book is 28 pages long and has a lot of evocative artwork.  It includes:

  • 4 new occupations and 6 new backgrounds, drives, and rituals for character creation
  • 15 moments
  • 10 conditions

You can also use the new character creation options from this adventure in the character keepers for Trophy Dark and Trophy Gold by Drew/Arktosaur, found at the Trophy RPG website, for easier online play!

With purchase, you get the following fully bookmarked PDFs:

  • Single-page layout
  • Facing-spread layout
  • Printer-friendly, black-and-white, art-less version
  • A separate file for character sheets

"I picked this up and ran it with my D&D group. None of us had played the Trophy Dark system, and we had a blast. Last night will go down as one of my top RPG experiences, especially as a GM. The players picked up on the themes of the incursion and went with it. Some really good evocative (and pretty gross) imagery. This was awesome and inspiring."

-Jesse S., early adopter

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.
