“A seriously f*$d up 65 room dungeon that will present a strange, alien-like slime environment, the likes of which are seldom seen in an rpg adventure. Which is a good thing.” - Tenfootpole 

This OSRIC/OSR adventure for level 3-5 characters can be run as a stand-alone or as part of the Gunderholfen and Darkness at Nekemte setting. It includes approximately 65 keyed locations + random site/event and encounter tables. It's heavy on curious oddities; viscous oozes; and squishy, mutated monstrosities, with a healthy dose of push-the-red-button and see-what-happens interaction thrown in for good measure. 

The Bottomless Pit of Zorth has stood as a place of inscrutable mystery and dread since time immemorial, yet not few of the brave and reckless have tried their luck within its deep and reportedly never ending depths. Those lucky enough to survive can attest to its apparent bottomless nature, but spoke more of the alienness and oddness of the place: the unfathomable purpose of the giant rotating pin that pierces down into the depths; the otherworldly machinery; and the crazed and demented denizens that for reasons unknown defended the hellish hole. These survivors often left with a sense that there was a deliberate design and purpose to the Pit and that a terrible but inhuman intellect ruled and guided all, though none have yet seen or met this assuredly dreadful master.

Note: The digital version of this product includes unkeyed JPEG maps for use with VTT play.

Did you, by any chance, play Chex Quest as a kid? I'm sensing some Flemoid influence in this module, and I'm here for it.

Ha ha! Sorry I’d never even heard of Chex Quest before, but it’s looks like fun.

The PDF for this product does not display correctly on either IOS or MacOS using the native pdf viewers. Text displays correctly, but the images are sized incorrectly and/or split into multiple strips. Would be great to have a corrected version that will work on the iPad and Mac.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that. The pdf was made in line with the specifications from Drivethrurpg so it should be ok. I checked it on my own IPad and Mac and it works fine, so I’m not sure why you are experiencing that issue. I will have another look at the pdf and see if there is out of line with specs; and if not, let Drivethru know to see if they see what the issue might be.

Thanks. Fwiw it displays fine with acrobat, so it does seem to be specific to the OS. Your other pdfs display just fine. Happy to provide screen shots if you need them.

The specifications look ok with the pdf, I've asked DTRPG staff to see if they can look at it. Often IOS and Mac devices have issues displaying files with JPEG 2000 compression images, but this file was not created with that compression setting so theoretically should be fine. Let you know when I hear more.

Hi again, specs appear to be fine, it could just be one of those odd localised issues.

I have the same problem on IOS and MacOS native pdf viewers (+ pdfExpert on IOS). Other viewers, such as Acrobat and Chrome browser native viewer, does not seem to have a problem displaying the images correctly. It is not a great problem for me personally, but perhaps something to be aware of.

Hi Jon, I've updated the file again to see if that fixes the issue.

Hello. I am afraid that the problem persists. As I wrote, it is not a big problem for me personally. It is a great adventure module at any rate.

Hi Jon, the tech support guys played around with a few things and an updated version has been uploaded. This one looks fine on different iOS systems.

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.
