Old friends are the best friends...

Grizzled Adventurers is a lightweight roleplaying game that helps you design a party of experienced heroes and run them through a dungeon in a single evening. The game is designed to tell stories about those heroes who never retired: the battle-scarred warrior who cannot put down the sword, the haunted mage who still thirsts for more, and the thief who has lost a couple fingers but gained a few fortunes.

Youth and exuberance is no match for old age and experience...

This game focuses on the core part of the adventure the same way a fantasy or action movie would: by showing us why our heroes are friends and then getting them right into the thick of it.

• Familiar rules for running experienced fantasy heroes through a quick dungeon
• Perfect for game nights when a player or two are out
• Play mid-level characters with the experience to take on anything (or so they think)
• Build custom dungeons on the fly to suit the evening’s heroes
• Survive just one more adventure so that you can impress the youth
• Play from convenient handouts, bringing only dice, snacks, and friends

Soon I'm going to be running a game of Beyond the Wall, and I'm looking for as much supporting material as I can find to expand my game. I have all the BtW supplements I'm aware of, but I'm always looking for more. Is this fully compatible? I'm especially interested in whether the magic system is the same, or if it would take extra work to adapt.

Grizzled Adventurers is mechanically compatible with both Beyond the Wall and Through Sunken Lands, including the magic system, but takes a different tone than either of them. The part of it that would mostly likely be useful to your BtW campaign would be its guide to building dungeons, which would work a bit like a scenario pack. It is designed for characters of a higher level than starting BtW characters, and would suit just fine for a more experienced party.

Any chance for a preview to get a better idea of your game? It sounds interesting.

What you have given is a brief description. A preview is an actual PDF in addition to a description showing a few pages of the game. Most games on Drivethru show a preview. A good preview includes the table of contents and a few pages from the game. This gives players an idea of the layout and aesthetics of the game (some games have art and some just have a nice layout), a better idea of what's in the game, and the writing style of the rules. At 92 pages, a PDF preview would be okay to do without "giving away" the whole game for free and will act as a kind of advertisement to help sell a game. This is particularly important for games that are selling Hardcover rulebooks.

Hello -- We've added a preview document to this listing - it will show you a few pages in several different sections of the book, including some tables of contents and examples of play.

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.
