Edge of Gloom Campaign Book


Welcome to the “Edge of Gloom” campaign, designed for the Against the Darkmaster RPG. This is an epic, if dark and punishing, campaign that sees the PCs confronting a looming evil that could spell the end of the free peoples. If you want to go on a heroic journey, if you want to fight against overwhelming evil, then this is the campaign for you.

This campaign book will provide you with a brief history of the world that you can use to breathe life into your own campaign. This book contains descriptions of some of the places and spaces within the world of Cealdia. Specifically, this campaign takes place in a small part of the world called the “Arms of Hallorn.” If you want more structure you can find detailed descriptions and maps in our upcoming adventure books set in this “Edge of Gloom” campaign.

This book also contains a brief starting encounter that is ideally designed for initial party formation and is a way to provide motivation for the PCs to head to the fortress of Houndskeep. “In the Gloom of Houndskeep” is the first adventure of the campaign and it can be found NOW on the Drive Thru RPG website.

This is a good primer for Against the dark master. There is no official VsDM setting. This is a good close start. It does feel half finished (more modules coming)The writer did his homework with what is provided so far from VsDm core book.
2 dollars is not even a cup of coffee so purchasing this is an easy buy and worth 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.
