Defenders Unplotted (beta): sandbox mode with Lone Wilderlands


Wilderland card back, Serenity Plain

Combine the characters from DEFENDERS game novels with

Lone Wilderlands,

the Solo Sandbox RPG in a Cardbox.

Three PDF documents:

1. Wilderland cards for Serenity Plain and Dimgrove Forest

2. Lone Wilderlands Adventure Manual, the basis for Defenders game mechanics

3. Hex map of the Defended Realm, setting for the Defenders game novels

Minecraft meets Dungeons & Dragons in a card-based, world-building, pen and paper tabletop role-playing game.

With paper, pencil, and dice, Lone Wilderlands contains everything else you’ll need for open-ended fantasy adventure in the paths outside the story line of the Defenders game novels.

Guide a character from the book or one of your own. and the list of allies, enemies, and places visited will grow, prompting new stories and twists. Cards and dice drive the obstacles and adventures as would a gamemaster. Change the course of cultures and settlements as you explore the wilds and upgrade characters.

But don't feel left out, gamemasters. Lone Wilderlands is also a no-prep, impromptu, world-building and story-generating engine, and it's adaptable to other RPG systems.

Origins. Playing the Sherlock Holmes mystery board game 221B Baker Street as a kid fascinated me. The writers compressed a whole mystery into a 3x5 card! I wondered if the same thing could be done to an adventure module for a fantasy RPG. It turns out that yes, yes it can, and here is a stack for your adventuring pleasure!

Defenders Unplotted includes:

9 cards to generate adventures and locations in the Serenity Plain

5 cards to do the same in the Dimgrove Forest

1 map of the Defended Realms

1 Lone Wilderlands Adventure Manual, the full game instructions for Lone Wilderlands: the solo sandbox RPG in a cardbox. This game is the inspiration for the Defenders game novels.

This video shows the boxed version of Lone Wilderlands available on TheGameCrafter. The PDF print & play version available from DTRPG has been updated and improved:

  • Codex and Monstro booklets have been integrated into an expanded and improved Summa Cartis (the instruction manual).
  • The cards have been enlarged in size and content.
  • No d20 is available via print & play. Not until DTRPG has their teleporter online, anyway.

Product Information
File Size:
95.86 MB
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.
