Dungen Crawl in the Thirty Years' War

Autumn 1631: Germany is plagued by the Thirty Years' War. Bruckstadt has so far been spared, neither mercenary bands nor epidemics have reached the little town on the Katzbach. The inhabitants attribute this to the protection of St. James, whom they honor every ten years with a festival. In 1631 it should have happened again, but the explosion of the town‘s powder store buried the entrance to the saint‘s tomb.

The saint, the citizens are convinced, will therefore no longer hold his protective hand over Bruckstadt. Count Reuben Wolfsgrau is now looking for volunteers to find another way to the tomb of St. James. A way through the Roman catacombs, where dangers lurk from beyond the grave.

Gimme Facts!

  • 104 pages of dark fantasy in the Thirty Years' War.

  • The forgotten county of Grenzland with 3 locations to explore: Wolfsmoor, Burial Mounds and ruin Aarhorst.
  • A dungeon with 150 chambers, spread over 5 areas.
  • Detailed descriptions of the (bizarre) inhabitants of the small town of Bruckstadt.
  • Furthermore: A bag of new magic items, devastating grave curses, powerful music pieces of an ancient toad cult, deadly traps, lots of gold and a castle as a reward for saving Bruckstadt.

The Saint of Bruckstadt
is a roleplaying adventure up to 4 PCs level 1-3, written
with the Lamentations of the Flame Princess rulebook in mind, but equally playable with any other OSR-rulebook.

I bought this from Gazer Press' website so can't write a proper review.

Nonetheless, lots of good sessions of gritty grimy fun.

Delve into the catacombs under the rotting town of Bruckstadt in order to stop an apocalypse (or let it happen!)

It's brutal but fair, and the NPCs have a lot of character in the fleabitten spaghetti western/warhammer mold.

Heartily recommend!

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.
