"...an excellent new setting..." - Gavin Norman, creator of Old School Essentials and Dolmenwood

"...great concrete advice...a lot of clever work...great if you want [something in a] classic fantasy or fairy tale vein..." - Ben Milton, The Questing Beast

"Magnificent! What an incredible work." - Diogo Nogueira, Ennie-award winning author of Halls of the Blood King

"...so fertile...a brilliant idea...I absolutely love the concept of this." - City Geek Gamers

"This Kickstarter totally over-delivered... Wow..." - Arthur Braune, Skullduggery Press

“Might be the best ZineQuest RPG I’ve ever backed.” - Ahimsa @ahimsakerp, Kickstarter backer

"Probably one of the coolest setting books ever." - Eric Kile, World of Eroc

When the world was one hundred years younger, during the Golden Age of British Book Illustration, Arthur Rackham and his paint box gave birth to some of the most transportive, iconic, and magical images of all time. His work brought to life characters and settings from famous fairy tales, ancient mythology, and timeless classics.

In Rackham Vale these images are given new life for use in your tabletop role-playing games. Rackham’s characters, creatures, and scenes become NPCs, villains, and a hidden-vale, sandbox setting that can be dropped into any RPG campaign that could do with a touch of magic, mystery, and old-time weirdness.

In addition to high adventure, weird creatures, dark sorcery, and oodles of riddling, tricksy, ribald fairy folk, you’ll find:

  • 154 pages and 100+ Rackham illustrations.

  • An original map by Joe N. Brown.

  • An original factions graphic that charts relationships for easy reference.

  • Dozens of adventure hooks.

  • A fully illustrated bestiary of 24 new creatures based on Rackham's artwork.

  • Tables for generating new settlements and creatures that fit the setting.

  • A preparation checklist for GMs.

  • Content that prioritizes accessibility and utility.

  • Stats for OSE, although the setting is compatible with and easily adapted to other systems.

Hi Brian,

Will the expansions from the paintbox edition from the current kickstarter be added to the PDF available here? That is if I buy the PDF here today, will I get the new content when the KS ships?

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi Aaron,

I'm sorry that I'm just now seeing this! DTRPG's alert system seems to have failed us. The Paintbox Edition new content (45 pages) will be available as a separate, addon purchase. If you haven't bought the PDF yet and you want the new content, I'd suggest waiting until the Paintbox Edition is available here, as it includes some updates to the original content too.

Does that answer your question?

Thanks,
Brian

I ordered a POD B&W; I don't recommend it: many pages have a lot of ink on them and the paper isn't thick enough to absorb it so most of the pages are not smooth.

Looking forward to the Kickstarter with color pages.

Hi Fernando,

I'm sorry to hear that (also sorry that I'm just now seeing this; DTRPG's alert system seems to have failed). Unfortunately, this isn't the first complaint I've had about the quality of POD. I'm going to pull it from the store. Shoot me a note at pry@crwbr.com so we can work out a solution for you.

Thanks,
Brian

On page 5 in the preparation check list for game masters, it says there are lists for Seelies, Unseelies and mythological creatures on the inside front cover. I can't find them. Could you tell me where they are please?

Hi Giles,

DTRPG can't actually print on the inside covers, so we took the content from the inside front- and back-covers and made them the final spread of the book. Find 'em?

Thanks,
Brian

The PDF doesn't seem to have a cover page. Is that normal?

Kristof, no, that's definitely weird. We definitely uploaded the cover per their instructions. I'll check with DTRPG and get back to you.

Ah I just spotted in my library, the cover appears to be a a separate pdf, hope this helps. (Superb product by the way, totally love it)
Customer avatar
Brian S October 14, 2021 3:51 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Yeah, which is weird---and fixed now. If you download the updated pdf, the covers will be attached, not floating around around in your library creeping out all your other books.

Anyway, thanks for the kind word! I'm so glad you love it! There are addons at crwbr.com if you want more RV stuff.

Also, if you have the time and inclination, a rating/review would be most appreciated. I know it's a pain having every creator you buy something from constantly hounding you for reviews, but they do make a huge difference. No matter how much I try to make the setting sound cool, it will mean 100x more to other DTRPGers if they hear it from you.

Format
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.
