SSolo4 The Endless Lair IV



A Solo Fantasy Adventure
Compatible with First Edition and Most Retro-Clones
Intended for one veteran player character of levels 10

Yet another level has been discovered in the maze near Cùirn Dhubh.
It is perhaps the most deadly section of the maze to be uncovered.
Will you return to once again challenge the Endless Lair?

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

I am very pleased to release the fourth chapter of my solo adventure series, The Endless Lair III! This is the much anticipated follow-up to my original solo scenario, the Silver Bestseller The Endless Lair (May 2019) and its Copper Bestselling sequel The Endless Lair II (June 2019).

In this module, you will take on the role of a veteran hero (Level 10) who has chosen to once again test your mettle against newly discovered, deeper depths of a world renowned maze. Will you survive to boast of your exploits? Or will you fall, like so many other would-be heroes? Only the Gods can say!

SYNOPSIS: This adventure takes place near the village of Cùirn Dhubh (Black Cairn in the Common Tongue), which lies along the southwestern border of the free nation of Dùn Bhriste. In the foothills within a half day’s ride of Cùirn Dhubh is a subterranean maze known far and wide as The Endless Lair. Some say it was the lair of an ancient necromancer while others claim it was home to a demon cult. No one knows its origins for certain, but the folk of Cùirn Dhubh know that hopefuls come from far and wide to test their mettle against the maze there.

Most who take up the maze’s challenge never return and those who do are tight lipped about their experiences. Despite this, the maze’s reputation is world renowned. Its name, the Endless Maze, is derived from tales of those few who survived their time in the maze, who claim the place is larger on the inside then seems possible and that there is a seemingly endless supply of foes in the rooms of this magical complex.

For years would-be heroes have challenged the maze and while most fell, a few hearty and lucky souls have survived. While tight lipped, this brave company routinely reported the maze consisted of five “sections” leading from the entrance to the exit portal. This fact was sacrosanct until a champion returned to report the discovery of a new maze. Heroes threw themselves recklessly at this new challenge until a third level was discovered by a brave champion who lived to tell the tale. Now word is spreading that this has happened again: heroes have found a fourth deadly maze within the Endless Lair!

Dare you challenge the new maze, adventurer?

This supplement contains a new, completely original solo adventure, intended for a single player character of 10th level. However, if a GM wishes to run this adventure with a group, it is easily modified to fill that need. IN that instance it is recommended for 4 to 6 players of 8th to 10th level players. The module relies on random tables and given this random nature it may be replayed many times and still offer different results and encounters. It also features, unlike the prior iterations in this series, a fixed encounters on each level, access to NPC companions, as well as puzzles and greater challenges. This scenario also features two deadly new monster, the fear gorta and the death mantle; the full OSR monster statistics and description are included as part of this adventure!

This module presents the player with deadly challenges and, true to Old School sensibilities, death will be the rule and not the exception in this maze. However, those brave souls who do survive can proudly claim they have once again bested The Endless Lair! You can play with any of the five (5) pre-generated PCs provided (Fighter, Cleric, Magic-User, Thief or Paladin), or your own character; and try and try again until you succeed!

As an added bonus, as a purchaser of one of my supplements you also get a free copy of my 2022 Starry Knight Press Catalogwhich has information on all of my modules and supplements as well as maps of the known portions of the sphere of Terrans, where my campaigns take place.

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.
