Isle of Eldisor Hexcrawl Campaign Cyclopedia & Gazetteer


The Isle of Eldisor Hexcrawl Campaign Cyclopedia & Gazetteer is a 76-page campaign guide describing the Southlands of the Isle of Eldisor.

Jordvann was once a land dedicated to Law and Good, until the rise of Eldisor, the Devil’s-Son, who together with his hordes of giants, dragons, trolls, ogres, orcs, and goblins conquered the land, reduced the people to slavery, and brought down Fimbul Winter, which caused empires to fall world-wide. Eldisor ruled for 400 years, until he was slain or brought low during a rebellion of his captains, the Old Evils. Fimbul Winter ended, and civilization rose again elsewhere, while the survivors on the Isle of Eldisor sought to stay alive between the warring Old Evils.

Now, descendants (or claimed descendants) of exiled Jordvanner have settled the southern verge of the southern portion of the island, building colonies and rebuilding civilization among the monstrous and savage peoples of the isle. Little is known of the Isle of Eldisor, and what little is known is merely myth, legend, and rumor. The adventurers can partake of the return to the Isle of Eldisor in many ways – find and recover the lost treasures of the ancient civilization; discover, ally, and trade with the savage descendants of the Jordvanner; battle the remaining hordes of evil giants, dragons, trolls, ogres, orcs, and goblins; or seek to re-establish the lost realm of Jordvann and protect the native peoples from the inroads of the colonial factors.

The setting is presented as a Hexcrawl sandbox, and includes the following details:

  • History of the Isle of Eldisor.
  • Details on the Colonial Powers.
  • Geographical information, including specific regional encounter options.
  • The Jordvanner (including the four descendant peoples – the wild Cavemen, the sorcerous Gray Folk, the monstrous Morlocks, and the savage Tribesmen, as well as their cousins, the barbaric Kruski berserkers and vikings).
  • 13 Gods, Demi-Gods, and Demons of the Isle of Eldisor and the Continent.
  • 36 Myths, Legends, and Rumors.
  • Complete Campaign Notes on making the Isle of Eldisor experience more immersive and unique.
  • Details on the Weather on the Isle of Eldisor, still recovering from Fimbul Winter.
  • A complete Hexcrawl Exploration Procedure to determine encounters and the discovery of minor ruins and settlements.
  • A gazetteer detailing 156 major settlements, strongholds, ruins, and lairs.
  • New monsters, including the Mammoth, Northern Titan, Giant Troll, and Multi-Headed Troll.
  • An Appendix N detailing literature inspirational to the campaign.
There are four separate maps included in PNG format:
  • One map with all the names, location symbols, and mountian passes with hex numbers (identical to the PWYW map available separately), and one such map without hex numbers.
  • One map without all the names, location symbols, and mountain passes with hex numbers, and one such map without hex numbers.
  • The map is 52 hexes east-west by 34 hexes north-south; each hex is 6 miles across, providing more than 50,000 square miles of adventure!
  • The map is also provided in the book, divided into eight sections for easy reading.

The Isle of Eldisor Hexcrawl Campaign can provide a Judge and their players with years of adventure!

Designed for use with Labyrinth Lord, easily adaptable to any Old-School RPG or even Fifth Edition!

This is pretty fleshed out setting and has a cool Glen Cook Black Company-ish vibe.

Just reading about the Old Evils given me a lot of ideas to work with. Also enjoy that the setting backdrop is that near calamity was avoided not from divine intervention or mortal heroes but the greed and treacheroy of Eldisor's allies.

Paints a cool grim feeling on the setting

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.
