Selected Option:
Softcover, Standard Color Book

Tomb of the Alchemist is a short dungeon (and canyon) crawl through the tomb of an undead alchemist of a bygone age. 

It features 14 locations and three versions of the map (player, referee, annotated referee).
As a bonus an atmospheric track befitting the exploration of a terrifying tomb is included.

The adventure is designed for the Old School Essentials system (character levels 2-4) and should fill about 1-2 evenings.

Brave the traps of a derelict tomb infested by mutated undead, parley with demented mummies, and uncover the secrets of an arcane plague!

Can you slay Hashur, alchemist of sargon, before he unleashes a terrible plague upon the borderlands?


Undisturbed for eons, the tomb of Hashur, master alchemist of Sargon, has recently been opened when an earthquake ripped apart a rock formation in the Montem Downs.
After awakening to find the ancient kingdom sacked and its once great cities ruined, Hashur’s rage knows no bounds. When the adventurers calling themselves “The Bold Blades” went to investigate, they were wholly unprepared to face an ancient mummy infused with immense power by magical potions.
Mad with grief and a desire for vengeance, Hashur slew the Bold Blades, and now slaves away in his laboratory, brewing a terrible plague of undeath which he plans to unleash onto the servants of Law.
If left unchecked, a tide of death and decay will sweep across the borderlands…

This work features art by Alexandra Anton, Dean Spencer, and Daniel F. Walthall.
The ambient soundtrack was composed by David Deininger.
Proof read by Daniel Mark, Reese Laundry, and Mitchel Alacant

What do you mean? If you download it right now it should be the most recent version. I'll check.

Cannot download the PNG files ... can you perhaps put them all in a single ZIP file?

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.
