There is a grassland – not quite a prairie, nor quite a savanna, where shaggy beasts graze under a wide sky. There was a river across the land once; now there is only a stream in a wide bed. There was a smooth highway of pale stone; now if you skip, you can travel by jumping long jumps from one gently slanted stone to another. Where the river met the highway on this grassland, there was a great city called Sargolis.

Under Sargolis, there lie caverns, where ten thousand generations of bats left their droppings, where fungus grew in near-forests. Here many of the people of Sargolis toiled, once, bringing these things to light and market, and creating a great bustle of trade.

The finest merchants of this trade became the nobles of Sargolis, and sneered down at the workers of the deep caverns, the delvers of the deeps, risible figures on the stage and ones to be avoided in the street.

Under the regimes fostered by this division, it should be no wonder that the delvers came to be driven to overwork, that the deeps were neglected, that monstrous rats were let to breed in their corners, that cults grew up in the deeps, until eventually they began to raise the dead in the dark below.

Mighty Sargolis was raided, again and again, by the dead and the cults beneath it, and went to war against itself – and both sides lost. The wealthy fled or were cut down, the warriors died in hosts, until the fighting stilled.

They say a potent lich still lurks in the deeps, much-depleted from the war, and coming no more to raid, likely rebuilding its strength. Certainly where the dead are not burned, they rise as undead, and go below, and all manner of vermin make their way to city to breed under it.

The armies are gone. But the deeps remain, and someone still has to finish the job.

Sargolis is an Adventure RPG, using only six-sided dice. 

The game takes its mechanical cues from Tunnel Goons by Nate Treme (on which it is based), from Darkest Dungeons (stress and breakdowns limit your exploration of procedurally-generated depths), and from the Roleplay Book of Warhammer Quest (the world above as time management and places to visit until town becomes untenable).

It is quick to play, and easy to make characters for.  It's also made heavily out of parts you can steal and take elsewhere if you feel the urge to do so.

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.
