Mysteriously Missing & Merrily Met

Suggested Price $1.49

PRINT VERSION AVAILABLE: Mysteriously Missing & Merrily Met is now available, revised and expanded, inside the Axian Library book.

Mysteriously Missing & Merrily Met is as set of optional tables for Old-School Essentials and is compatible with similar clones of the Original, B/X or BECMI editions of the classic fantasy role-playing game.

These tables answer the question: "Where have you been?", for when a player misses a session, explaining where their character has been and what they've been doing.

The set features three tables:

  • Last Seen in Town
  • Last Seen in the Wilderness
  • Last Seen in a Dungeon

They provide an instant retroactive story to explain why a character disappeared and was not around during the last session. 

These tables aim at providing interesting events to inject more story into the campaign. Sometimes the results are simple and bear little or no consequence; sometimes a result may produce a significant change in the character’s story.

Mysteriously Missing & Merrily Met comes as two files: a PDF designed for screens, and another designed for print-at-home on A4 paper, with easy instructions to print, fold and staple/sew it to make a nice little zine-like booklet.

Each table is twenty entries. The entirety of the zine can be seen via the Full size preview!
Expanded tables are found in the Axian Library book

I wish I understood how best to print these booklets. They would be a good collection to the bookshelf.

Easy way: open the print-at-home file, print the first page only, then flip the sheet and feed it back to the printer, and print page 2. Keep on like this with the following pages and you're done.
This will take some time, but it's near impossible to make mistakes.
Faster way: open the print-at-home file, print all odd pages first, then flip all the sheets and feed them back to the printer IN REVERSE ORDER and print all even pages on those sheets.
This is faster, but you need to be sure you can figure the order your printer will take the sheets.

After you've printed all the pages, check to be sure they are in the correct order, then you can fold the booklet in the middle and cut the edges.

Hope this helps!

I love the entries in the preview, but you may want to edit number 8 for the dungeon- passed away means dead (passed out means unconscious) and dissolve magic should be dispel magic.

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.
